October bride here, I feel like I’m in a good place, we are about 50% paid off [without the honeymoon], just booked out photographer.
Still looking for a dj and an officiant, though. I’m not SUPER concerned about a dj though, as I have a professional quality sound system and would just need to find someone to manage the songs [plenty of free programs for that as well].
I’m also still looking for a seamstress for alterations, I feel like I’m okay right NOW since my day is still 8 months away, but I need to find one soon.
We also need to figure out what we’re doing for our ceremony music.. I’m thinking of just a cd player or something.
This is the list of what’s left :
Grooms Attire [everything but cufflinks]
Groomsmen Attire [everything but cufflinks]
Bridesmaid Attire – [everything but jewelry and handbags]
Finish paying off hair/makeup artist [deposit made & booked already]
Bathroom basket & items
Candy, brownies, cookies, chocolates ect for candy buffet
13 Jumbo suction cups for hanging decor
Up lighting [we are doing our own]
Cigars for cigar buffet
Matches, basket for matches and cigar cutters
Food for cocktail hour
Fabric to cover hay bales<br /><br />twine
3 table cloth skirts
2 table skirts
day before/of hotel [booked but not paid for]
reception building [booked but not paid for]
invitations, rsvp, envelopes
cupcake stands [we have about 48, need another 5 dozen or so]
flower girl dress
120 votive candle holders
Welcome party food
optional things are :
more taper candle holders [we have a bunch already but wouldn’t mind more]
more tealight candle holders [see above]
I don’t feel that this list is SUPER long considering we still have 8 months.
