We’ve been engaged less than two months and already have our venue, photographer, my dress, shoes, and so many ideas for the wedding. This just lets you do some fun DIY, right? XD

Trust me you will find things to do but way to go for being way ahead of the game! 

  • Create timeline for day the day of and details for all the vendors
  • Select some “inspiration” pictures to send to photographer to let them know what you like
  • Accessories for the dress
  • Pick out a hairstyle
  • Trial run of hairstyle and makeup
  • Shoes! 
  • Favors/gifts/etc
  • Rehearsal dinner
  • Music for ceremony and reception

Wow, GREAT job!

I am a “planner” too. I think that I had the date set, venue booked, dress ordered, wedding decorator picked, photographer booked, DJ booked and ideas on all 3 centerpieces within the first couple of weeks.

MY Future Mother-In-Law told my Fiance that I would have this wedding planned so quick that all we had to do was sit around and wait for it to get here.

We have had our venue and dj booked for a few months now and I am thisclose to getting a dress.. and we aren’t getting married until June of 2012, lol! I say good for you for getting it done early! From what I’ve heard and read, there will still be things that you will need and want to do. Looking the bright side.. less stress maybe?!

Very impressive!!! It really helps when you know what you want. I’m one of the most indecisive people I know… which has made wedding planning pretty difficult. As soon I think I have it all figured out, I change my mind! Very envious of you! Congrats on your engagement!

I’m deliberately pacing myself. i found the dress last month but not going in to buy it till the end of this month.. I dont want to have any remorse over certain decisions so I take my time to really think it through and before I commit to it. Good thing too because I have kept a mosaic journal of all my ideas since I got engaged and they definitely change alot as the weeks go by.

i was the same way immediately after we got engaged back in the middle of august… i had the church, hall, cake, photographer, & my dress all set in just a couple of weeks.  i wanted to get as much done asap since i’m in law school and wanted to get as much done as i could during “slow” time at the beginning of the semester (free time doesn’t really exist again until christmas break lol).  the plan is to get most stuff done over christmas break then put as much as i can on hold for spring semester while i write my thesis-type paper… i’ll have about a month after spring semester before the wedding to get all the last minute stuff done.  it helps that i’m not difficult to please… i’m more about the marriage than the wedding… i’m excited that we’re finally getting married (after 8 years of dating) so it doesn’t matter to me if it’s fancy… i’m happy with a very laid back wedding.
