  • Wedding: December 2013

You are much more organized than I am. I think the only thing I’ve accomplished is starting a secret pinterest board. πŸ˜‰

I’ve booked:photographers (though, to be fair, we had to reschedule our date from this summer and they said they would shoot our new one in December). Oh yes, and I have our music for the ceremony booked.

I’m looking into: venue (ARGH), caterer, cake, videographer, DJ, dress, wholesale flower order, paper products…pretty much everything.

Highlight of the month: Going to the wedding show and eating lots of cake! And trying on a few gorgeous dresses. But mainly the cake.

Frustration of the month: Because we had to push out our original date, a lot of this month was spent working through the residual frustration of that. And then there’s the general frustration that it’s too cold to have a barn wedding in December, or all the cool venues are booked or too expensive, etc. I’ve got an appoinment next Wednesday to tour an old school building, so keeping my fingers crossed. πŸ˜‰

I have my dress, booked my venue, have my photographer and bought a few decorations as they went on sale after christmas.  You are both much more on top of things than me!

@nomihomee:  I agree! @Sugar_and_Spice, @Nic01:  you girls are on top of it!


I love this idea and def will look back each month!

I’ve booked: church, venue for reception, photographers, cake woman, picked colors, florist, almost done finalizing the guest list, asked all bridal party/readers/singers etc

I’m looking into: videographer, DJ (had 1 meeting but want to have another to determine pricing), invitations (reached out to 3 designers just need to pick), scheduling the engagement photos, honeymoon

Highlight of the month: Started my FI’s gift! Finalized colors!

Frustration of the month: Not knowing if I really want a videographer or not. In honesty, it really it’s been blissful πŸ™‚

I hope we can keep up on these monthlys!

so far i have the venue, photographer, dj, officiant, his ring, bridesmaids gifts, (TONS) of silver holiday decorations, favors, i decided to make a brooch bouquet and started collecting those, (with the help of my grandma) and i bought my dress yesterday!

im currently researching for a baker and invitations


my highlight of the month was buying my dress!

my frustration of the month was also buying my dress… it was so much more stressful than i thought it would be! i made the mistake of trying on dresses after i already knew i had found the one. that made for a few days of headaches and sleepless nights.


im glad to hear from other december ’13 brides! congrats ladies!

@Nic01:  Thank you for your kind words!! My Mom has them twisted because its my second wedding and FI’s first — so were having a wedding. Fiance and I are paying for it entirely. Shes too concerned with what the world is going to think because Im getting married again. (My first marriage barely lasted a year, I was young and stupid and he cheated on me so I peaced out).
