I’m 5/15, too! Things are really starting to come together.

Dress is in,a nd my first fitting is 2/6 (of course the dress is about a size too big, but better safe than sorry!) We ordered the bridesmaids’ dresses were ordered Saturday and should be here mid-March. Cake is done. We had our tasting. Photographer and engagement pics are done. DJ is all set, and our rehearsal dinner site has finally been decided upon. Next up tuxes, favors, and ceremony details…and I have to follow back up with the florist about some additional details.

I really thought time would stand still but it is all moving right along!

I have the ceremony site, reception site, hotel rooms, photgrapher, DOC, cake, dress ordered, bm dresses picked but not ordered yet, and should be deciding on a florist this week.  The major vendors left will be the DJ and the Limos.  Now its time for the details!

That’s my date! 05.15.10! I feel like a slacker! I’ve booked my venues, photographer and caterer, but that’s it! We just decided on our wedding party and finalized our colors. (Even though, I’m still debating the colors!) I’m a really laid back person, but now that it’s actually 2010, I’m starting to get a bit nervous! Since I’m a plus size bride, I’m having problems finding a fabulously, gorgeous dress! This has stopped me dead in my planning tracks! I’m new to WeddingBee and hope that constant communications with fellow brides will give me more inspiration.

I’m May 14th! We’re doing a Friday morning brunch (most people are coming from out of town, so work isn’t a problem) We’ve gotten a lot done (venue, caterer, wedsite, invites, attendants, dress, cake, jewlery,  registries, dj…) but the list seems to keep getting longer!

 

My Fiance is currently working on getting our photographer and we need to figure out men’s attire. I need to locate shoes. We’re writting our own ceremony and need to start working on that as well as ordering our flowers (we’re doing silk- since we’re doing 2 receptions we can use them at both!) and figuring out other decorations. We need to order rental things soon (sound equipment and tablecloths). I still don’t know what I’m doing for centerpieces (though I’m thinking something with pinwheels!) We need to order wedding bands and we’re still deciding if we want to do ( or even what to do) for our guest book and/or program (is that super necessary even?) And we still have meetings with our caterer to deal with…

 

Right now our focus is on wedding bands, photographer and getting invites out. We’re sending early since we didn’t do Save-The-Date Cards and pretty much everyone is coming from out of town… And I’m trying to figure out a course of action for decor…

 

I’m so glad that everything is coming together! We just got engaged in Mid-December, so we were a little worried about getting everything done! We’re keeping everything pretty simple and bare-bones… The Fiance and I don’t have a lot of money to throw around and would much rather have money for an apartment and getting settled than a big extravagant wedding… We’re doing pretty much everything for about $4,000 which is super exciting 🙂 At this point, we have most of the essentials… everything else is just icing on the cake!
