lenabee:  My wedding date is May 30th of next year and I’d say we’re about 75% finished. We need to decide on bridal party/groom attire and pick a rental place for tables, chairs, etc. but other than that, we’re done! We’ve been engaged for just over two months, haha… Now I wish I would’ve spaced it out a little more because I want to do more!

I’ve been trying to decide on colors since March and finally did two weeks ago sheesh!Booked/completed: Ceremony venue, reception venue, photographer, bridal party and groomsmen chosen, guestlist…

There’s still the officiant, which could have been done last week but she rescheduled, the dj and other things. Sigh.

I am so excited to have almost all the major things done! We already have our Venue, Photographer and we chose our officiant last night. We are waiting on a quote for a DJ a family member knows. Still looking for videographer and florist too. This past summer I got mine and all my girls/flower girls dresses! We still need to do tuxes, but Fiance is being a pain and waiting till the last minute (He still hasn’t asked one of his groomsmen yet! I could kill him ) I just scheduled the appointment today to choose all our menu items and linens and work on details. I have been engaged for 2 years this month and I can’t believe the wedding is finally coming together and getting to close!

I have booked the venue, bought my wedding band, chosen a photographer, taken engagement photos, booked a florist, selected a cake, bought a dress, booked a makeup artist/hair stylist, and we are working on save the date cards.

I need to look at invitations, pick a DJ, decide on lighting, decide on the menu, find an officiate, select bridesmaids dresses and suits for the groomsmen, decide on favors, buy a gold cake stand, find shoes, find a veil, buy my fiance’s ring, register somewhere, and plan the rehearsal dinner. That’s such a long list! 🙁 I haven’t been very productive for the past month.
