Yay only 9 months! I’ve gotten a lot done, almost everything I think haha. 

I have my church, reception site, dress, invitations, centerpiece stuff ordered, had my bouquet made, DJ, photographer.  I still need to do bridesmaids dresses, (but there’s only 2 of them and they’re our sisters so not difficult), limos and I’m sure a ton of stuff I’ve forgotten. How about you??

I just got engaged last month, but I have my date, venue, and dress already purchased, and have picked but not signed with my caterer.  I still haven’t gotten my save the dates out though… eek!  And I’m panicking about finding a photographer!

The main thing I am doing now is making paper flowers.  I intend to use them for all the decor and bouquets etc, so getting started now is necessary!

I have reception site, ceremony site, dress, invitations, save the dates, dj, cake, photographer, tuxes, bridesmaid dresses, and am starting to look into transportation and the hotel blocking.  We still need to finalize the food selection at the venue but otherwise I think we’re off to a good start 🙂  It’s coming quick!

Stds sent out to everyone.

I Booked my flights and resort and secured my ceremony location and time as well as the reception location for my Destination Wedding to Mexico

I have my shoes, my dress and maybeeee my earrings, but i might get some bigger ones in the end.

I have reserved FH uniform (this formal dress is only a rental for Majors and below since they were it so little and its so expensive)  This means a little trip to Quebec City pre-wedding, for a fitting and to pick it up.  yay 😉

Just about 8 months left till April- any things stressing April brides out?

I still need to finish a lot of my ‘bridal’ look.  Need to get my bridesmaids to try on dresses, need to find out who I’m renting tables/chairs from, need to work with our friend who’s doing music and another who’s doing flowers and need to finalize a caterer! I feel super far behind just because there’s so much DIY stuff to do! Hoping seeing that other girls are smoking my progress will encourage me to get motivated!!

OMG I am so behind and stressed. We didn’t really set a budget because the only savings we have we are using for a down payment on a house in the future. So we are just doing things paycheck to paycheck.

All we have so far….

Rings

Dress

venue

DJ

 

I am so lost and don’t know what to do next!

I have the ceremony venue booked and know where the reception will be, bought the dress, shoes, veil (early, I know, I couldn’t help it 🙂  ) umm… Save-The-Date Cards made and mailed, invitation supplies bought, and wedding party chosen.  I’m sure there’s more that I’ve done.
