Thanks, belle italia!  I am a super organizer, and I just stress out until things are in place!

Our invites are modern, and brightly colored…we’re doing the pocketfolds and bellyband things.  How about you??

Thinks makes me feel a little better, you ladies seem to be on the same page as me, I thought I was way ahead of schedule!  I ‘m so glad to be in the “less than a year” phase, now I don’t feel as crazy telling people everythign that I have planned already πŸ™‚

I am a August 11, 2012 bride..

–  Venue – Ceremony and Reception (same place) – Booked

–  Caterer (have to use venue’s) and know what menu I want ..

– Photographer – Booked

– DJ – Booked

– Officiant – Booked

– Decorator – Booked

– Baker (we are having cupcakes and a small cake..   Know which cupcake toppers I want) – Booked

– Color scheme picked out (black, white and red)

– Engagement pictures done already and had the engagement party

– Started on wedding website, doing pretty good..

– Centrepieces chosen, have a good idea for decor ideas what I want..  Just have to coordinate with my decorator and soon to be florist.

–  Bridal party is chosen, think the Maid/Matron of Honor is thinking of ideas for the bachelorette party..


– Florist – in the middle of interviewing now, hopefully make a decision in a week or two.

– Videographer – I know which person I want to use (family friend) but I just haven’t gotten around to meeting with them yet..

– Just started trying on wedding dresses a couple days ago but that will be a while I’m not rushing into it..  But my first time shopping was quite good though!

– Have an idea of Save-The-Date Cards I want to use, I have to fully decide if I will use a template off the internet or have someone help custom make my own to personalize it a bit more..  (Since I have no photoshopping skills at all).   Have a good idea for invitations as well (DIY pocketfolds) but haven’t designed them yet, just have inspiration pictures..

– Been talking with the bridesmaids about dresses and getting their opinions of what they like.. But its proven to be difficult to find a style they all like..  They won’t be trying them on until the fall.

I think that’s it? haha I’ve been busy.
