Let’s see. I have:

Bought the dress. It’s in my closet. I’ve got the veil ordered too but it’s taking its time.

Decided what jewelry I’m going to wear. I got a nice pearl necklace and earings set for myself when I graduated, and they go with the dress so well!

Picked the venue, even though I have to wait until one exact calender year to reserve it.

Picked the invites and Save-The-Date Cards. Just waiting on finalization of the venue to order them. Also I want to wait a little while to decide the exact time of day.

Decided on a theme and colors.

Started collecting the containers and little details for the centerpieces and other decorations.

I’m pretty sure I know who we’re going with for catering and the cake as well, I just want to get to the point where I can say “April 28th” and not have to calm people down by explaining “…next year.”

  • Dress is picked (just got it this past Saturday)
  • STD’s and Invitations are picked

I still need to settle on a few styles for my BM’s and flower girls. Pick a DJ and settle on favors. I also need to decide how I want to wear my hair, pick shoes and design the menus, programs and other signage.

So far, I have:

– church and reception venue booked

– booked the officiant

– photographer booked

– florist booked

– ordered 3/4 of the invitations (I had $50 on vistaprint…I’ll order the rest soon)

– decided on colors (light, blush pink and navy blue)

– bought a guest book ($5 on a clearance table!!! and I LOVE it!)

– bought 10 Eiffel tower vases off craigslist for centerpieces

– made a pretty concrete guest list with both sets of parents

I know who my DJ will be and who will do my cake, but I have not booked either of them yet. I am also getting ready to tackle some of my DIY projects like the flower girl basket, unity candle, and ring bearer pillow! I can’t wait to get started!!!
