Me too! Just joined Weddingbee and getting excited about the next seven months of planning and preparing. About a month ago I was feeling like our date was so far away, but now I think it’s going to go quickly – just a winter to get through and then the excitement of starting married life! 🙂

SO I am also a May 19th bride… You guys are all making me SO very nervous! You all have so many things done already! We got engaged August 31st, and had hoped that June 2nd would work out, but it didn’t (I kinda jumped the gun when it came to posting on here what my date is but have no idea how to change it!) however, Everything worked out perfectly for the 19th. It didn’t seem real until I bought some dated stamps and things and to see the date in black and white made it VERY real! I am super excited to marry this man. Just gotta get everything done 🙂
So the things that I have done
- Venue booked
- Dress picked out (however I still have doubt and reservations about the dang thing)
- Cake picked out
- Wishing tree tags completed
- DIY cocktail napkins stamped
- Dessert buffet menu
- Invites picked out
Next up (and when moolah is avail)
- STDs completed
- Center pieces
- MOB and MOG dresses
- Booking honeymoon
I just finished grad school and won’t be able to really start working until the begining of Dec.. Sadly that means some of the super important things will have to wait until I get my first pay check!
SO many things.. so little money 🙂

Hello bride date twins!
I have the florist booked now, and on a new search for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. After two of the Bridesmaid or Best Man saw my dress, they commented that my number 1 pick is not formal enough. And…I agree with them. So, now we have a new front runner. The STD’s are in production. Also booked the wedding cake artist.
First Bridesmaid or Best Man choice:
New Bridesmaid or Best Man choice:
Opinions would be greatly appreciated.

@echopkb – I personally like the first Bridesmaid or Best Man dress more and think it’s formal enough compared to your dress. But I might be biased because I’m not crazy about long satin Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. However, while it’s not my taste, I do think the second dress is pretty and compliments your dress very nicely. I’m sure everyone will look great no matter what dress you end up selecting.
