Any updates for May 2019 brides? We just set our date in August, so we will be getting married May 10, 2019! 🙂 

-Guest list kind of finalized 

-Invitations picked; not ordered (destination wedding, so we have to get these out soonish)

-Dress picked/bought

-Venue finalized/contracted – they provide catering and alcohol

-Hotel Block set up

-Photographer booked

-Acoustic guitarist for ceremony/cocktail hour booked; DJ booked

-Hair/Makeup Artist booked

-Bridesmaids/Groomsmen picked and confirmed (haven’t sent boxes to my BMs but I guess I will soon)

*note – we aren’t sending save the dates I don’t think. I think we will just send invites since it’s already September.


Still to do:

-figure out decor

-send invites

-music selections for dances

-wedding rings

  • Wedding: May 2019

I’m a May bride! We’re getting married May 4 :). So far we’ve booked a venue, photographer, videographer, DJ, florist, hair and makeup artist, cocktail hour musicians, and transportation. We just took our engagement photos a few weeks ago, and sent our initial thoughts on our invites to our designer. Next on our list is the cake! My fiance just started dental school, so we tried to get most of the planning done while he was out of school so he could be more involved.

  • Wedding: May 2019

I’m getting married May 25! 

Things we have done so far:

– venue booked (It’s a hotel ballroom, so this includes food, alcohol, and some decor things like chairs and linens)

– photographer booked

– ceremony musicians booked and ceremony music selected 

– DJ booked for the reception, and I have a rough spotify playlist I’ve been playing around with for song ideas to suggest

– photobooth booked (and they will provide a guest book for guests to paste their photos in, so I guess that takes care of guest book) 

– florist booked and we have a general plan for the decor (still have to figure out some details)

– our florist will also be our day-of coordinator

– save the dates are being sent out tomorrow!

– started designing invitations

– ordered my dress and veil and tiara

– wedding party asked; bridesmaid dresses have been selected are being ordered this month

– trolley booked for transportation to and from photo locations

– I don’t know about FH, but I’ve started writing my vows


Things still to do:

– officiant — we’d like FH’s uncle to do it, but if he can’t travel for our wedding, then we will have to find somebody else

– book videographer (planning to do this over the weekend)

– menu selections; cake flavors and design; we also would like to do signature cocktails, so have to figure those out as well

– need to find shoes and earrings to go with my dress

– need to figure out what to do with my hair and makeup and book people for those

– select tuxes for groom and groomsmen

– pick a song for our first dance (we have like 10 we’re trying to choose from) and songs for other stuff (father/daughter dance, bouquet and garter toss, etc.)

– finish designing invitations and send them out when the time is right

– decide what we’re doing for favors

– choose wedding bands

– all the tiny details that no one besides us will care about (toasting flutes, garter, ring bearer and flower girl attire, bathroom baskets, bags for out of town guests, whatever else I’m currently forgetting!)


When I list it all out, I’ve actually gotten more done than it feels like! I’m kind of relieved to have most of the big vendor decisions behind us. Now we’re moving on to smaller details, which I think will be a little more fun for us.
