@Lulume:  We got engaged on Valentine’s Day. We’ve booked the ceremony and reception space, and we have our photographer, only because my FI’s sister and brother-in-law have an amazing wedding photography business and they’ve offered to do our wedding as a gift! We’ve selected our wedding party, and my cousin (who is a chef) has agreed to cater the rehearsal dinner and reception. That’s all we’ve done, so my to-do list is … EVERYTHING ELSE!

Right now I’m focused on my dress. Hopefully I’ll have that figured out this weekend.

So. Many. Details. left to figure out.

I think I would die if I were counting days, haha. I had no idea that we were even around 199 or whatever it is. I did a bunch of the ‘big planning’ early and only have little things left so honestly I don’t even think about it that much and it has been making time fly!!

What I have left:

Buy Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts (they are already picked out though)

Decide on ceremony logistics and music (I have my song picked out for walking down the aisle, but thats it)

Decide on specific song choices for the reception

Make final decisions on dessert bar items

Get FI’s wedding band (already got mine and his is already picked out)

Figure out a wedding gift for Fiance

Order programs  & menus (already picked out)

Thats about it though. I think 6 months is plenty of time to do everything you have left, but planning the honeymoon would take priority if I were you (depending on where you’re thinking of going). We booked ours a couple of months ago.

Plenty of time to lose 10lbs too!

Its funny, some days I feel like time is flying by, and other days I feel like 6 months is sooo far away! There is still plenty left to do, but at least tomorrow I’ll be crossing invitation shopping off the list. I doubt we’ll be ready to order them, but who knows! I feel like once we choose them we can work on the programs and other paper-related things. I’m still deciding on my veil, but once I choose that I will be able to decide on other accessories. It seems like once one decision is made, 5 more follow closely behind. Anyone else feel that way?

I feel the same – where are the dats going! 

I still have a fair amount to do:

-reserve rehearsal dinner location (should be done this week)

-order invitations

-order veil

-order bridesmaid and flower girl dresses

-book hair stylist 

-buy wedding bands

-start dance lessons

-finish ceremony programs

-finish table numbers

-work on place cards

-bathroom baskets

-frames for various signage

-finalize readings for ceremony

-write ceremony

-write vows

-purchase BM’s gifts (have some stuff, but have to finish)

-assemble kids activity books

-figure out a card box

-DIY mercury glass vases


OK. When I write it all out like that, it makes me panic a little.

Gotta start checking things off the list, day by day.

190 DAYS TO GO!!!
