Scary!! You girls are on top of it!! Each time I see lists like this I just become overwhelmed!! So much to do so little time!! But my dress did come in last week!! Which was enough to give me a good kick in the butt!! But I’m so happy to get it fitted!!!
Am I the only one who preferred the fit of the sample dress rather than their dress? I think I’m just distracted by the wrinkles….

My plan is to start my weight loss routine to prevent having to pay for the dress to be let out. (We bought it a size too small because it was only $100 and worth it even if we do have to end up letting it out)
Hire a DJ
Talk to caterers and florists
Make and send Save The Dates
Drive Mr. Shef een more crazy with more wedding planning
Meet with the String Quartet and make sure they have music.

Oh I am doing terrible! I did get together with my bridesmaids and we discussed a lot of stuff (and even went to the mall to get an idea about dresses), so it’s not a total fail! I really need to get the save the dates out – and the last few addresses I need – so I will at least work on those before the month is up.
BUT my dress came in early (I wasn’t expecting it for another month)! WOO HOO! I will be trying it on this weekend, so I am very excited 🙂

I think I am doing somewhat okay for November. I just sent off the deposit and contract to the DJ. As soon as I receive a signed copy from him, that will be set to go. I mailed half the Save the Dates yesterday because I got tired of waiting for FI’s family to send their addresses. I will send the other half out when they give me the info.
My biggest issues I need to focus on now are flowers and the rest of the hotel blocks.

I can’t believe it’s almost DECEMBER y’all! Eeeeek! I’ve finally got our hotel blocks sorted out (sweet), but our save-the-dates got super delayed (photog delivered photos late, invite designer was out of town), and at this point, to avoid paying rush charges I’m waiting till the week after Christmas to send them. We still need to finish up our wedding website though – we built one ourselves – so we now we have a little more time for that. And I just booked a day of coordinator, so I’m really excited about that!
My plans for next month (Dec) include hopefully booking our florist, setting up hair/makeup trial appointments for Jan, and doing as much of my DIY stuff as possible, and that I can do this far in advance. I have the week off between Christmas & New Year’s, so I’ll be putting together all the nonprinted components of my invites (pockets, belly bands, ribbon, etc), and making any major decor elements like signage, aisle decor, etc.
