- Wedding: July 2014
I’m getting married 9/15 and I have everything booked. Venue, church, dj, phographer, linens, makeup, hair, transportation, photo booth and my dress has been purchased and has alreay come in! Do things as you can if you know what you want!
Of course! But then I am planning for a different hemisphere, in the ‘holiday season’ so there’s no time to dilly-dally.
Yes, you have lots of time. Lots of time to get things done without feeling rushed or stressed. 🙂
i’m a december 19 bride! and i’ve booked the venue and church! i went dress shopping for fun once but other than that no serious planning other than going on weddingbee and reading a ton of wedding blogs! it’s so fun and i’m really enjoying this time, just like everyone told me to hehe 🙂
I start medical school in August, and I wanted to get as much planning done as possible before it start4ed (I am getting married in July 2015). I have my dress (and I already have it because I was able to get it off the floor), venue, bridesmaids, cake, invitations, dj, flowers, and photographer all done. The big thing left is to finalize the guest list (which may take a while), and the food tasting isn’t until January. I knew that once school started I would have to be very focused on it, and I didn’t want to worry about the wedding (any more than I have to lol).
I’m May 2015
To my family, I’m OCD fot having this much done but compared to other bees I’m behind
My venue and photog are booked.
My bridesmaid dresses are picked.
oh and I found pretty invites 😉 ha!
I’m may 2015, and I’ve already booked the church, reception hall, photographer, and ordered my dress. I’m a bit ahead I think but we wanted more time to make payments. But i’d def start as soon as you can. The sooner the better, so you have options and don’t get stuck trying to find a vendor last minute and end up some with a company that isn’t exactly what you want. 🙂
annette.m.clark.7: People really don’t understand how much time and work goes into a wedding! I’m getting married June 2015 and I have already done so much. I’m about to start grad school, so I want to get as much done this summer as possible. Let’s see…
Dress is already in my possession
I already have my wedding band
Bridesmaids were asked and accepted, already looking into what gifts I can get them
Guest list is just about set
Church booked and started pre-marital requirements already
Reception venue booked
Invitation suite is made
I’ve bought a few things for decor and whatnot
We even started looking into honeymoon destinations.
I’m sure there is more…
I got engaged early May 2014 and we plan on getting married May or June 2015. Note that I still don’t have a date, after two months of being engaged. People keep asking, and we just don’t know yet. In the first weeks of our engagement, I kind of had to get used to the idea. I wanted to get married so badly, and being a wedding photographer, I am surrounded by weddings all the time, so people (including me!) assumed I would be ready to plan my wedding in a week. But I wasn’t. I loved our engagement weekend so much, that I kind of had to linger on that feeling for a bit before I could think about actual wedding planning.
Two months in, not a date or venue yet, but I did buy my absolute dream dress. I had a hard time tracking down the dress I had loved for over a year, so when I found it and it fit me perfectly, I just bought it. I don’t think I’ll have dress regret at all, because I’ve been swooning over this dress for so long and it really feels like a big relief that I have it now.
As for the date and venue, we have visited several venues and placed an option on one and have our favorite. We have created the guest list (not finalised, but a gist for the venue so we can get offers). We’re just still discussing our budget, and we are both just SO busy (we both work full time, I’m actually working 60 hours a week currently due to two jobs), so wedding planning is something we do in between on our mutual off hours.
So basically we take a bit longer to take some decisions, which is why it’s good we started planning now. Really, it’s only a year, it will fly by. Of course, you can plan weddings in a much shorter time, but I love having that time to carefully consider things without having to make rush decisions. For me, a year long engagement is totally fine. Our optional wedding date is currently 20 June. It was 23 May first, but I’m liking June better now. And I’m absolutely loving being engaged now. I am all smiles every day when I think of our engagement weekend and the time that we’re having now, planning our wedding together, it just warms my heart. Really try to enjoy this one year that you have, it will really fly by!
Not officially(publicly) engaged atm, but the SO and I have been doing a little planning quietly with each other. We’ve finished the guest list and are looking at venues and what type of officiant and ceremony we want. We’re aiming for fall of ’15, but still not 100% sure, it’ll depend on the venue. He’s into the honeymoon stuff too.
Got engaged last July 10th, have a two yr engagement have basically been brainstorming since then. Just this past month began to actually venue scout. I ordered the boxes for my invitations since last year based on inspiration from Mrs Perfume another bee here. So I have that and have begun the process of ordering my dress via Jasmine’s Bridal since it’ll be custom made combining two dresses I love. I think planning with just one year is perfect so you’re not stressed six months before the wedding.
