Hey girls! I just ordered my invites today…waaaaaayyyyy early, I know, but I wanted to take advantage of a great offer from Papyrus for 20% off that expires soon.

We’ve booked all our vendors except transportation and cake. My Save-The-Date Cards are almost finished and I’m adding all our info to the wedding website that will go live when we mail them. We are behind in blocking hotel rooms, to be done before the website/STD mailing.

The guys are all outfitted and the girls go in a couple of weeks to pick dresses. Oh, and I had a fight with our 9 y.o. flower girl about her dress. Fun, fun 🙂

The only things left are to finalize the guest list and save all my spare change to pay for this crazy shindig, yikes!

I’ve got all of the big stuff done (venue, photographer, videographer, Catholic marriage counseling underway, dress, bridesmaids dresses chosen, tuxes contracted), but I’m having trouble finding a DJ! We’ve had the worst luck, and DJs are so expensive!

Definitely did not mean expensive – I meant important!

I’ve done all the major stuff. Cake, florist, linens, venue are all booked & deposits start coming out this Friday (eeek). Bdmd’s dresses are picked out as well & the readers for our ceremony have been asked.

I’ve also designed our invites & priced out the materials to DIY them, found our centerpieces, and have a firm idea of what we want for our bands, but that won’t start being paid for until May. Whew.

We have venue, officiant, working on pre cana this weekend, caterer, florist, cake, honeymoon booked. Still need to find a DJ. Worked on some decorations too. I feel like I am doing pretty good. Here in the next few weeks I will be doing more with compiling the guest list with addresses and all contact information. Also, I will be designing our wedding invitation as well, since me, my mom and a friend are making invitations.

we’re all set with our officiant, we have venue, the florist, all table decor, i have my dress & shoes, we have our photog, we have our caterer but are still working on menu, we have the musicians, we decided on our deserts but still need to order them.

still need hair/MUA, DJ, invites (and save the dates, wanted to base them off invites, but we haven’t gotten those together yet=( not sure if it will be too late to send them out), we haven’t made any honeymoon plans- not sure where we’ll be at $$ wise at that point in don’t want to get in over our heads, needs guys attire, need our outfits for the traditional ceremony (FILs will be taking care of these though)…. and lots of little things that will end up taking up more time than everything we have already done! =)
