Where are my 8/27/11 girls? How’s planning going? I’m working on getting my Save-The-Date Cards in the mail this weekend while at the same time basically finalizing the guest list. After that, I am starting work on my 40+ pomanders (yes four – zero) and we have our Pre Cana the weekend of February 5th. Hoping to have at least two or three DIY projects knocked out by the 6 month mark.

Hi date twin! My save-the-dates should arrive at my house next week; I’m addressing them myself and we’re still finalizing guest list so they won’t go out until mid-February. I ordered my dress on Friday! Most vendors booked, although I’m sure I’m forgetting something(s).
40 pomanders! That will look amazing, I LOVE pomanders but I have neither your skills nor patience. 🙂

I’m getting kind of a slow start at the whole wedding thing. I’ve ordered my dress and started interviewing photographers, and we have started our guest list, but thats pretty much all I’ve done so far.
I’m actually starting to get a bit nervous about it because some of the photographers I’ve contacted already have our day booked. I need to get cracking!

I have been engaged for almost a year already so I have so much stuff done- I am actually at the point where I am just like “Let’s just get married already!”
My STD’s went out in November since we have been engaged for so long (and I was tired of people asking me- so when is your wedding?). This month I am trying to tackle the transportation and invitations then next month registry. Hope the next seven months goes fast!

August 26 bride here. I just ordered the save the dates. They will get here sometime in February. I am still working on the guest list which exploded somehow from a measly 50 to about a 115. Still don’t know how someone can have that many family members lol (his side). However, I am only sending the save the dates to my family in Holland since he doesn’t want to send any to his side.
Last week I bought my dress, veil, and hairpiece. YAY! Yesterday I booked the photographer. About a month ago we booked the ceremony place/reception place. Now just to get going on the DJ, flowers, and officiant.

@miksje130: I hear you on the exploding guest list, it has been a battle for us and we’re still struggling to keep it under 350… (Currently at 358.) We both have HUGE families, mine along is 95!
@Mrs.Williams: You have gotten a ton done already! Great job!
I am going to be working away on addressing our Save-The-Date Cards tonight, we left work early due to the Blizzard of 2011, hoping for no work tomorrow. Then I could get them ALL finished! 🙂
