I am getting married September 4th, 2010. I have nothing started, I have only compleated one task so far, which is the colors. I do not know anything about putting a wedding together, my mother and I are not very close so that eliminates one person to ask. I am new to the wedding world, I am so clueless on centerpieces, the cake and the invitations!! Please help! I would appreciate your ideas and your thoughts. 🙂

My best advice would be simply to search google, theknot.com, projectwedding.com, weddingbee.com, et cetera for ideas. That definitely gave me a jumping off point for where I wanted to go with my centerpieces. What also helped was our budget (not huge) – I knew I’d have to get a bit more creative, and I didn’t want flowers. So I’m opting for candles and some other additional details, nothing over the top.
Cardsandpockets.com has a great blog spot where you can look at DIY invitations users have submitted…

The knot.com has a checklist of when you and what you should be working on. It helps me know what type of things I should focus on. Like right now for you it would be your dress and the major vendors. i.e cake/photographer.
I also keep a file on the computer titled wedding. When I see a picture of something like a cake I save it. Then when it gets closer to the time that I need to make a decsion about that item I go to the cake folder and start narrowing down my photos or likes vs dislikes
Good luck and don’t stress out. Lots of good ideas out there.

This is the center pieces I was going to go with until I found out the venue did center pieces for free so I took advantage of that to save money.
These would be EASY to do. Rocks you can get cheap at a dollar store, vases can come from Ikea or a dollar store, candles I found on the Ikea website and flowers can come from anywhere…

I think The Knot is great and so is the checklist but completely overwhelming. Every time I log in and look at what hasn’t been done i almost have an anxiety attack. You have plenty of time. I say, figure out your budget, find a venue and a dress, the rest will fall in place. Start looking at pics and decide from there what you like. Print out pics and take them to Florists or see if they are easy enough to do yourself.
Good Luck and dont stress!!!!

Pick your theme and start googling. I agree – Martha has a lot of tips! But it can be overwhelming. Start by narrowing down your theme or style first and it’ll be wayyyy easier!
