errrything’s done EXCEPT: i need to order my wedding ring (it has to be custom-made), dress fittings, engagement photos, put Save-The-Date Cards in mailbox, put together invites, follow up with bridal party on attire (they’re wearing whatever they want.. i just need to make sure the dudes actually own suits), book officiant, 2nd and 3rd menu tastings, and flowers (DIY from trader joe’s day or two before the wedding). i think that’s about it..
thanks for this thread! it actually reminded me of a few things i have coming up on my to-do list!

I was happy we finally figured out our date/venue/and photographer.
Going dress shopping is driving me nuts!! I still haven’t found the one. Hopefully will do that this month as well as make those Save-The-Date Cards.

As of today we have sent out STD postcards (to most people, not eveyone got one in case they have to be cut from the guest list 🙁 )
We have also booked a photographer and sent her the deposit.
And that’s it. Other than me spending copious amounts of time reading wedding boards online
Oh and I’ve cut a crap load of paper circles to attempt a paper bouquet. Not that food, booze, officiant, venue, a dress, a suit for him, etc. aren’t all important but really, I need the circles. Oh gawd I fail at weddingness.

I feel slightly behind in comparison…
So far we have booked ceremony and reception venue, includes the caterer, photographer is booked (friend of family), DJ is booked (friend), my dress is bought, Bridesmaids dresses, and groomsmaid dress(yes, like a bridesmaid but for the groom =D) bought, invitations are designed just need to get them printed, rings bought.
Still need cake (think we know who just need to book it), flowers, decor/centerpieces, attendant gifts, send out invites, dress alterations, pick out tux for guys, escort cards, favors, figuring out ceremony and first dance music, makeup and hair for day of, shoes…i think thats about it
Overall i feel good about where we are at.
Anyone have any suggestions for floral arrangements and table decor for a navy blue, light blue and white color scheme???
