I have done most of the big stuff so far
So far I have:
Purchased my dress, which fits prefectly so no alterations!
Purchased Veil, headpiece, and sash.
Booked my venue for both my ceremony and reception.
Purchased my save the dates! (They come in the mail tomorrow, can not wait to see them)
Purchased my cards to ask the bridesmaid and groomsmen to be in our wedding
Started my seating chart
Contacting bakeries for estimates
Booked my photographer yesterday
Purchased mutliple vases and trays from reception bars
What I have left to do:
Book a dj
Book a caterer
Book a baker
I am attending a bridal expo in a few hours so I am hoping to either book or at least figure out for I want for my dj, cake, and food. I am also pretty sure I know who we want our officiant to be, we just have not asked yet!

I don’t think there are too many of us 🙂
So far we have our venue, photographer and dress, veil and sash. I am having so much trouble deciding on colors/decor so I keep holding off on everything until we have that figured out!

Boyfriend or Best Friend and I plan to get engaged within the next month or two, he just got my parents’ blessings. We want to get married overseas so BF’s elderly grandparents can attend (in our homeland), so we are thinking of Jan 4th as a date so it is still around the holidays and allows people to take time off to travel.
But I’m stressed that 7-8 months won’t be enough to plan a wedding.
We are also thinking of having a reception in the US afterwards but we may delay it by a few months (after Jan 2014) so we can get venue/photographer that we really want. That would be a random weekend and people would need to travel within the country if anything so it should be ok..?
Congrats to you all though!

We’ve booked our venue, caterers and marriage celebrant, and have an appointment with a photog this month.
Have started some DIY projects, picked the bridal party, have the bridesmaids dresses, ties for the boys, groomsmens gifts and a pretty good idea of what we’re doing decor wise.
The photographer will be the last person we hire, so i’m nearly there! 😀

Oh man I feel so behind haha!!
So far we have a venue, waiting on the signing, I HAD a dress picked out and ready to buy until my mom showed me a beautiful dress soooooo back to retrying on again :/ We had a DJ set up and the bridesmaid dresses picked out, I have everything set up as to what I want to get now I have to go get it, but thats going to be a bit delayed seeing as I am finishing up nursing school. On the positive side my mother agreed to help make alot of the stuff so that will cut lots of costs!!
