@lisamcdermott:  Hi!


Our date is not set in concrete yet (it may move forward to April or back to the 26th of July 2014!) but girl are you on a marathon ha!


We still have a long way to go, but when we start paying and booking stuff it will be a whirlwind. We don’t have to book things so far ahead where I live 🙂

@lisamcdermott:  Wow!  Good for you!  I think we might be about the same, give or take a few items.  Fun, isn’t it?!

✔ Day of Coordinator

✔ Dress (in the closet but needs alterations) & Shoes

✔ Venue

✔ Caterer

✔ Flowers

✔ Photographer

✔ Invitations (designed & supplies are in hand!)

✔ Save the Dates are mailed

✔ DJ / lighting

✔ Photobooth (need to purchase but it’s arranged)

✔ Guestlist finalization

✔ Rehearsal Dinner is planned (by FI’s mom & step-mom)

✔ Wedding bands selected (need to purchase next month when Fiance is home)

Still  need:

❑ Engagement photos (December 28)

❑ Officiant (meeting December 28)

❑ send invitations (march – TONS of out OOTs so we’re sending early)

❑ cake taste (December 22)

❑ Need unity set (doing floating candle so I need to design & etch a vase)

❑ Finalize table centerpieces

❑ Ring “books”

❑ Dress alterations

❑ Jewelry

❑ Bridesmaids dresses (have an idea though)

❑ Bridesmaid shoes

❑ Groomsman attire (have an idea here as well)

❑ Flower girl attire/ring bearer

❑ Menu Tasting

❑ card box

❑ find Hair stylist & Makeup artist (Know the salon I’m using but haven’t paid yet)

❑ need gifts for bridesmaids/groomsman

❑ Wedding license (May/June)

❑ Register (December 27)

Some of it is late (like our engagement photos) but it’s because Fiance is stationed in MO and I’m in WA.  I have to wait for block leave before we can do certain things. Oh yeah, and no honeymoon.  He only has a limited time off (he’s a Drill Sergeant) so our post-wedding time will be spent moving me from WA to MO.  Hopefully we can take a trip near our 1 year anniversary instead.

  • Wedding: July 2014 - Prague

All I’ve done is book the venue (deposit paid) and get a seamstress to make my dress (there’s drama). A friend of mine will do the photography. Oh, and I’ve sent out the Save-The-Date Cards. I will have no bridal party. 

I know it’s going to suddenly be May and I’ll have NOTHING done, lol!!!
