So, I’m a day early, but I have a lot of time on my hands today…
What do you June brides want to accomplish this month?
It seems like a hectic month with the holidays and many parties, but I don’t want to forget all the wedding stuff! Here is my list:
- put a deposit down with a florist
- pick the first dance song & meet with DJ
- pick tux style for the boys
- send out Save-The-Date Cards with Christmas cards (they should arrive this week! yay!)

December is gonna be soooo hectic! I don’t want to fall behind on planning either though… here is my list for December
- do bouquet mock-up with florist
- reserve shuttle for hotel
- order invitations
- work on music choices (ceremony, bridal party entry, etc.)
I’m sure I’ll get one or two of these things done, I’m really hoping to definitely do the invitations and shuttle- those are the most important for the month. I think January is going to be much more productive and easier to manage. It’s gonna be here before we know it! Sooooo excited!

FutureMrsSchechter: I agree! finding a cake design has been very difficult. There’s a lot I like, but none that I would love for my own cake.

Well I paid off for my dress today! Yayyyy! One more thing off my list.
This month I’m finalizing all my vendors, all of which have already been selected. save the date4s go out this week. Hotel rooms for myself and our guests have been secured. We’re doing our floral work ourselves (the bridal party), so that’s off the list. Selecting the groomsmen’s wear is in his court, and I’ve already given my advice and opinion when requested.
Engagement pics done (wish we could do them over)! oh…the website! Do you Bees think it’s a necessity to have one?

@[email protected]: I don’t think a website is necessary. We decided to make one just so we could add more details about hotel arrangements. I don’t know how many people will look at the website, but it only took a few hours to make and was free, so I figured why not?

@BlueChampagne: I’ll keep that in mind. Thanks!

Wow you all are doing a lot more than me. I’ve been planning since this time last year and I started second guessing my decisions (including purchasing a new dress!) so now I’m holding off…don’t plan to do much this month. I already have a venue, a church, a DJ, a florist, my dress and Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses so maybe I’m just that far ahead.
