Nothing.  LOL!!!  Plenty of inspiration boards, but that is about it.  We have our theme.  Nothing else.  Well, it’s because we’re getting married NYE 2011.  So, we have lots of time.  However, we do need to book a venue this summer, but I’m holding off until he puts a ring on it.

have done:
– booked church
– marriage prep completed (getting married in a catholic church – ’nuff said)
– reception venue booked
– caterer booked (only b/c it comes with the venue – hotel)

– flowers (have several ideas picked, now just to need to talk to florist)
– centerpieces (i’ve changed my mind 80 million times “/)
– guestbook wish tree (hello gorgeous manzanita branches!)
– looking for lots of candle votives! (or at least i’m thinking about looking for lots of candle votives – haven’t really actually started the looking just yet, lol. oops!)
– guestlist (ack! gotta have it done before std’s can go out; so soon!)
– hotel accommodations for guests
– overall layout of ballroom (tables, guestbook, dj, bar, etc.)

still need to do:
– pick a dress and then order it!!! (procrastinate much?)
– pick bm’s dresses and order them too!! (i think so!)
– boys’ attire (groom + wedding party)
– invites!
– programs (which would require an already planned out ceremony, which we don’t have, lol)
– plan out ceremony!
– find a dj!

-Secured ceremony & reception site

-Secured photographer

-Purchased dress

-Secured officiant

-Bought about 1/2 of the centerpieces, making the other half


In progress:

-We’ve met with caterers and need to decide which one…we have menus picked out for these options and rentals organized too

-We likely have a friend doing the DJing–need to confirm

-Hotel block research

-STDs: designed and ready to print as soon as we have hotel and website info

Still need to:

-This makes me sound like a terrible bride, but I have my Maid/Matron of Honor but haven’t decided on the rest of my BMs yet…so no dresses or anything like that

-Need my dress altered

-Decor, flowers
