Still need to book our DJ (who is driving me insane with waiting for the contract, it’s been a month!), and a few other main things though.  I still need to ask another lady to be my bridesmiad too.

I just got engaged yesterday. All I have done was name my bridal party, get a manicure, admire my ring and admire it some more :-).  It’s over a year away so I have time.. I’m completely overwhelmed just thinking of it.. Luckily I made my sister moh and she’s done it before so it won’t be bad..

Wow, you guys make me feel behind!! I know there is plenty of time though…actually, I’m glad, because some of my friends think I’m doing too much too soon, but I say there’s nothing wrong with getting it done early!! This is what we have done…

-Reception venue booked
-Photographer booked
-Flowers bought (silk)
-Color scheme set, more or less
-Bridal party picked, only 2 asked so far, waiting for the others

We still need to get a caterer by this summer! I plan on dress shopping in August or September. We sort of have our DJ booked…we’re using FI’s BM’s equipment and having BM’s cousin as the DJ…eeeeeeek, I’m so excited for summer so I can start planning more!!

We have nothing done. Lots of ideas, but nothing set in stone. It’s frustrating.

Wow, you guys are speedy! Fiance and I just got engaged a week ago, so all I’ve been doing is researching wedding venues and admiring my ring. ๐Ÿ™‚

We have nailed down a wedding budget and have identified three wedding venues that we’re going to see in three weeks (we are doing a destination wedding, so I have to wait for us to fly back to the wedding location). Hopefully we’ll have a venue AND a date picked out after that trip!

I feel like I am soo behind now and when we got engaged (almost a year ago) I was so ahead lol. 

-Booked our reception venue (includes food, alcohol, cake, centerpieces)

-Booked our ceremony venue

-Picked color scheme (Lavendar, Turquoise, Black and White)

-Started desigining our STD’s and Invitations

-Created website

-Decided on bridal party but haven’t asked yet (mostly family members- siblings, daughters, , nephew, and neice)

-Decided on bouquet type (paper flowers & brooches)

-About to sign and make a deposit for our photographer


I am trying to manage wedding plans and a fundraising event!

Y’all are on top of this! We’ve officially booked our venue, chosen/asked our bridal party and readers, had both readings picked out, have our colors and theme. Now comes the fun stuff like centerpieces and cakes!

MrsB2015:  I get that response – you have sooo much time! Um no not really. We are already in March!! I need to start my dress shopping – I would rather get my dream dress then have to settle with a dress. I am taking my time and enjoying my planning. THe sooner I get stuff done, the less I have to stress over closer to the date.
