Right now we’re trying to finalize the invitations we believe we want, looking at bridesmaid dresses, figuring out centerpieces by just trying a bunch of different random things, figuring out the whole wedding video situation, and hopefully soon meeting with the cake baker.  And hopefully much more since everyday I feel the pressure more and more to get things done!

Right now, I am trying to find another venue. The venue we chose foreclosed! 🙁 🙁 It is becoming stressful. Other than the venue, I got bridemaid dresses, flower girl dress, my dress, shoes, and STD cards.

@Ginger87:

 

No kidding how the date creeps up! I’ve been enjoying the leisurely browsing for the last few months; better get serious about invitations now! 

We still need to book an officiant, find bm dress, order invitations, decide on decor, find my jewellery and hair stuff, buy shoes.

@Applestar13: oh no!!! i hope you find a new (better!) venue soon.  My first venue also foreclosed so I know it can be a real hassle – but you’ll find that your plan B should have been plan A all along!!

Fiance and I are off for the next few days so we are going to call and/or set up appointments with:

  • Invitation lady
  • some judges (hopefully one is a romantic and wants to officiate a wedding!!)
  • ultimatum my parents into giving us their final guest list – or I’m going to become a bridezilla (I’ve been watching the show for inspiration – just kidding!!!!)
  • Find a florist , etc. etc.
  • Send out my already designed kick a** STD to aforementioned guest list

We’re about 80 percent done with our planning – I just sent out my save-the-dates this last week and picked up my wedding dress!

During August I am:

  • paying deposit on our ceremony musicians
  • buying my veil
  • nailing down guest transportation to & from reception

After that, all that’s left is florals/decor, deciding on our ceremony music, invitations, tastings for dinner & wine selections and dress fittings. WAHOO!

During August I am:

  • Hoping to select a florist or finally settle on DIY
  • Booking a videographer
  • Signing the contract with the caterer
  • Paying the 2nd venue deposit
  • Registering (but we might wait until September)
  • Shape my curly willow altar
  • Print out invites and start assembling
  • Finish painting guest book “leaf” print tree.

The list seems never ending!

I still need to book my videographer! I also need to finish unpacking (just moved into our house the other day), pick out wedding invites, and make my guest list stop growing. lol

I will also begin shopping for honeymoon attire.
