Yay, 8 months and yay date twin. So you are making me feel bad. So far I’ve confirmed that the venue is booked and thats about it. Haven’t gone dress shopping, decided on bridesmaid dresses anything. Need to get on it.

And…That’s about it. We still need to find an officiant, DJ and florist.

I’ve done a lot…..this summer and the fall (I’m a teacher) are going to be really busy so I wanted to get a bunch done now when things are calmer.  I’m currently working on our Save The Dates.  When is everyone sending theirs out?  Are other people doing August like SFreeman?

What about invitations? I was thinking about sending mine a little earlier then usual b/c of the holidays…I don’t want them to get mixed in with holiday cards.

I was thinkng July too…..seeems kinda early but 99% of my guests will be coming from out of town.

Good point about invites getting mixed with holiday cards!  I was thinking mid-December, but maybe that’s a bad idea?  I don’t want to go after the holidays because our venue wants the head count by mid-Jan!  I might have to go with early December?

I have the venue, reception area, dress and such done. I am waiting on my engagement pics so that I can get the Save the Dates going


planning on sending those out in August, too! I started going to the gym again, hoping to lose 15 lbs by December, when I will get alterations done.

Here’s where I am in planning…

  • Venue, photographer, DJ, officiant, photobooth booked. But our venue won’t let us do menu tastings until Oct or Nov. =(
  • Dress ordered, shoes bought. Still need accessories though
  • Girls trying on dresses next week and will probably order. 
  • Wedding website done except for groomsmen’s profiles.
  • StD and invites picked out but not ordered… waiting for the go ahead from Fiance who is dragging his feet/studying for the Bar. =P  Good thing it’s over at the end of July.

We will go into wedding planning overdrive in August. I want to send the StD’s out no later than Aug 19 and I was thinking invites in November with RSVPs due Jan 5th or something like that.
