  • Wedding: August 2012

First off, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

I know you are super excited and you erally want to enjoy some time without all the wedding fuss, but my advice is to start planning now! Especially with only 7 months. I waited last minute for some things, and it was VERY hectic towards the end.

If you start planning now, you will be able to have some more time closer to the wedding. I would start with the biggest elements first : Ceremony site, reception site, theme or colors (once you choose venues), dress (especailly for alterations!!!), attire for wedding party (again, you need time for alterations!), and make appointments to meet with a DJ, baker and florist. I waited until the last minute for a cake baker and it was pretty stressful.

Also, buy a calendar and mark it with EVERYTHING you need to do for the wedding. It will help TONS 🙂

@butterfly1988:  Congratulations!! Are you doing everything on your own or do you want to hire a wedding planner? If you are doing it by yourself, then the first advise I’ll give you is to start delegating. Find out who all from your and FI’s family are willing participate in the wedding preparation. Then assign roles according to their liking and expertise. Be in charge of the central planning (theme, venue, music, color etc) while having others sweat the small stuff (or accompany you to the florist, dressmaker etc). If you are taking you mom or best friend for the dress trial or the caterer then inform them of the date beforehand so they can be free for you. Keep a planner and note down every detail and involve as many reliable hands as you can get. All the best!
