There’s been a few bumps in the road (deciding location, finding a venue, and guest list) but for the most part I am really enjoying it. 

It was just this week that I really saw the vision (even though we’ve had a theme) of how I want to lay things out and set things up so that was extremely exciting 🙂

Great! We’ve got so much done/planned; I basically just need to work on my DIY projects. We ran into a snag with my dress (in that the salon lied to me about the designer–not a HUGE deal, but when you tell me that it’s a local designer exclusive to the salon and it’s…not at all…that’s a problem), so I need to find out what they have to say and go from there. I may end up making them refund me the money (it’s not in yet) and going elsewhere.

I am doing ok… Bummed that my lace dress that I won is not going to work out. But already started on some DIY projects, got the venue worked out, Photographer booked, and cake and DOC are being gifted to us! I am so excited to get into full force of wedding planning!

Planning has been great for me too! There has definitely been some small stresses here and there but since I know I have time, I just put it aside and deal with it later. That seems to really help. 


@chocolatelady I dont think there really is a proper time. You don’t have to send out invites yet so the guest list isn’t set in stone, so you can definitely start putting one together. We began ours pretty much when we first got engaged to have an idea of the number of people. We recently have gone through it more seriously and also had our parents go through theirs since STD’s will go out soon!

I feel like I’ve got all the “biggies” done except for the florist (booked venue+catering, dj, photog, videog, photobooth), now it’s time for all the little stuff!  I want to say that I am sitting pretty but in reality there’s so much to be done and I know I’ll forget stuff!!

@chocolatelady:  I think a guest list is good as soon as you can start on it.  I needed to have one together to have an estimated headcount for my venue, and if you plan to send save the dates within the next few months, it can be a long process of getting your list, getting FI’s list, getting your parents’ lists, fighting with your parents about who’s on the list, getting addresses… LoL.  In my case at least, the sooner the better 😉
