@bowsergirl:  It sounds like you’ve accomplished a lot!  

I’ve completed the following:

  • venue
  • catering/tasting and menu decided upon
  • linens and chair covers
  • florist booked and deposit paid(wedding party, ceremony, and reception flowers)
  • DJ & ceremony music booked and deposit paid
  • photobooth reserved and deposit paid
  • cake deposit paid
  • wedding dress & shoes 
  • bridesmaids dresses
  • save the dates sent
  • photographer chosen and deposit paid
  • officiant chosen
  • registries completed

I still need to do the following:

  • decide on and rent ceremony chairs
  • decide on full open bar or beer/wine + cash for liquor (it saves us over $1,000 to do a cash for liquor bar!)
  • help my Future MIL set up the rehearsal dinner
  • make my table numbers and escort card frame
  • choose and make or purchase bridesmaids gifts
  • choose what the groomsmen will wear, what the flower girls will wear, and what the ring bearers will wear
  • choose and order/send invitations
  • decide on wedding bands

Honestly I feel like I’ve accomplished almost everything time sensitive but it’s primarily becuase my sister’s wedding is in November, then with the holidays I know I’ll have limited time to do things after November!
