Wow, you all are fast! We knew we wanted to get married I PR and we’re engaged the day the hurricane hit. Booking things in PR is slow under normal circumstances and has, understandably, taken even longer now. In the meantime I’ve been dress shopping. I am not committing yet because I plan to come back and shop with my mom, aunt and sister when they can come visit but am 99% sure I’ve found it.

Engaged Sept 3, 2017 (labor day wkend) , wedding November 11, 2018
We are about 85% done. The venue we booked is an old Queen Anne style Victorian manor, that is all inclusive. From the ceremony site and reception , down to the food and alcohol, the DJ, the table centerpieces, the cake and the invitations. The coordinator was also included. Score!
All that is left is to order the maids dresses (this coming Saturday this will be done) meet the florist and baker in August to design the centerpieces and cake, get the music sheets to the DJ and get the marriage license when its time.
My gown comes in sometime around May and I will need to start alterations 6 weeks from the wedding, and the few decorations that I wanted outside of what the venue provides, Ill be doing just a little assembling of those (antique birdcages with flowers and lights). The tuxs are done, rings done, makeup and hair gal done, photographer done, pastor done.
Save the dates went out in November, and the invitations are sitting and ready to go, but wont be mailed til 2 months out.
I feel happy, anxious and sad that I really dont have anything left to do except X the days off the calendar. But thats what I get for being such an organized plan ahead kinda gal.

gotta love the binder! Our coordinator provided us one from the venue, and its got a year long timeline to keep us straight with what needs done and when. Its almost impossible to miss anything as they already set all of our appointments to meet with them. LOVEEEEE the stress free planning!
Oh, and I have the totes too! haha!
