Looks like you’ve been a Busy Bee!

I’ve booked the venue, photographer, and caterer.  Had our e-pics taken a few weeks ago… still waiting on those in order to do the Save-The-Date Cards.  Hope to be able to send those out in January, after the holiday crazyness.

We have our church, reception hall, band/DJ, and photographer booked, I have my dress/shoes/veil, most of the bridesmaids have their dresses, I asked my friend to marry us (we need to make sure he will be in the country first!!), we had our E-pics last week so we’re waiting on those for the Save-The-Date Cards. And I have an idea in my head about invites. If you look through my DIY pics, you can see my cardbox, pew poms, and my bouquet. I still need to figure out what to do for the 3 girls. Oh, and we got our rings, except now Fiance is re-thinking his…

You guys sound pretty far ahead of me! We have the venue booked and food comes with the venue so that’s dealt with. I’ve bought my dress as well, but other than that we still have a lot to do! We have a wedding planner, though, so she’ll keep us on top of things–she is waaaaay more organized than I am! I think next we’ll be finding a photographer and doing engagement pics. I feel like there’s so much to do, I’m starting to get nervous!

I should have prefaced my comment with this: I graduated(from college) in April and I haven’t found the right job yet, so while I’m unemployed, I’m getting everything I can done so once I start working there won’t be a massive load on my shoulders.

I feel like we’re pretty far. We have the reception venue, ceremony venue, invitation desgins and photographers. Our reception venue included food, cake amd DJ so we’re having our tastings the first week in december so our menu should be done. We took e-pics last week so I’m waiting on those to finish up Save-The-Date Cards so I can send those out over the holidays. We have the boys tuxes all picked out just need to wait to order them so measurements are right. I have my dressed picked out but just need to order it. We have the contract signed for the hotels rooms booked. So now it’s getting down to just finishing touches and finalize things.

Super excited!

Hi fellow September ladies!

My dress is ordered and in (needs to be altered). We have booked our church and reception venue, our officiant (my uncle is a pastor) and our photographer. We’ve met with a florist who we’re probably going to go with. FI’s uncle works at a printing company and printed our Save-The-Date Cards magnets from a design we made. We had our engagement photos taken last month. We’ve picked out invitation and program designs and just need to order them. We’re doing matchbooks for favors, so we ordered those on a big sale. I have my shoes and most of my jewelry. We’ve been collecting vases for centerpeices and have our guestbook pretty much figured out.

We still have some big things to do — caterer and DJ are on the top of the list!

Impressive ladies!

I have the venue (includes caterer), dj, photographer, florist, dress, shoes, day of coordinator, and officiant.  I feel like there is SO much left to do….

Photographer booked, e-pics taken, Save-The-Date Cards designed and sent out, venue for ceremony and reception (comes with food, cake, all linens and centerpieces, bartender) booked, officiant booked, dress ordered.  Invites designed, will be printed closer to the time. My sister is a hairdresser and one of her co-workers will be taking care of hair and makeup.  Trying to book a DJ right now – was going to do it 2 months ago but got derailed thinking maybe we’d have an iPod reception, and now our first choice is already booked.  Still need: flowers (honestly, will probably just get our bouquets from the supermarket), FI’s suit, shoes and jewelry for me, guestbook (likely a photobook with our e-pics).  I’m working on a DIY cake topper.  We’re each having our only sibling stand up for us, so their attire is up to them.  I’m probably forgetting a million other tiny things, but I feel like I’m ahead of the game right now.

@Scc6a: haha thanks!  My fiancé proposed to me while we were on a ferris wheel, so it’s sort of become a theme in our wedding plans 🙂 We just had to make sure that any venues we were looking at would allow it, and we found the perfect place that does!
