So, we’re a little over a year out. Where are you currently at in your planning? What’s your next task? Are you already encountering problems and stresses? We may have lots of time, but it’s going by fast!
I’m getting married at the end of September of next year. As of now, we have my bridesmaids, my dress, most of the parts of our centerpieces, our photographer, and, by this weekend, the venue (Bonus cheers: my parents said they’ll cover the deposit)! We’re starting to hit that “It’s coming together and this is awesome” point in the planning process. The next thing is for us to find a caterer. We really just want to have a simple pasta bar, so hopefully we can work that out by the end of the year. After that, we’ll be working with FFIL on the order of the ceremony (he’ll be officiating). We haven’t had too many real problems just yet. The most drama has been over not having the ceremony in a church. My mom’s come around to it, although she still gives off the wishful thinking vibe. She is genuinely happy with us and the way we’re choosing to do things.

HonoraryNerd: Hi early bird! Its you and me!
I am Sept 26th 15, and I’ve booked…. the venue (botanical garden in KY), caterer, florist, photog, video, band, and planner. Almost the rentals but thats been a back and forth headache because we’re having a tent reception.
Right now my biggest task is compiling all the addresses for our engagement party! His parents are throwing us one in Nov at their swanky country club. Very excited, and I remind myself all this address work now means less later for the wedding. I also need to find a dress for it! Been watching fall fashions like a hawk.
Its so exciting. All of it.

- Wedding: September 2017 - Ceremony and Reception: Historic mansion on the water
9/5/15 here. Things are going well so far. The main stress I am having is with my fiance. He is so busy that I can’t get him to focus on making any decision but he says for me to just be happy and plan the wedding that I want. He will write the check. 🙂 So far I’ve booked the venue (the FH did go with me to choose the venue), booked the photographer, and hired the WP. I purchased both my ceremony and reception dress. My bridal party is set and their dresses taken care of. I am now working on finding a DJ and videographer and am thinking of sending out STDs.

We have our church, reception venue, photographer, caterer, my wedding dress, engagement photos done, and we’re in the process of asking our bridal party – I’ve gotten a yes from all my girls! Next big thing we’re trying to figure out is the DJ, and then we’ll move onto bridesmaid dresses and flowers. 🙂 Oh and a complete guest list! That’s gonna be a big job because I have a huge family, haha.

Booked my ceremony/happy hour musicians. Also we decided were officially calling it happy hour not cocktail hour. Because why not! We love happy hour.

HonoraryNerd: November 7, 2015 over here! As of right now I have my dress and we have the venue (deposit has been paid). We still need to formally set the time for the ceremony and reception, but there isn’t a huge rush on that because they only host one event per day. Other than that we’ll be looking at photographers and DJs this fall and we’ll be asking our wedding party people this winter – my sister gets married this year and I want to focus on her wedding before mentioning too much about mine. 🙂
