Well, go easy on me, I’ve only been engaged about a month now.  So in the next week we should have a signed contract with the venue/caterer and I will be locked in as a July bride. 

I thought it was too early to look for a dress… but maybe not?  I’ve did a tour through David’s Bridal and now am looking at stuff online.  So maybe that will be on my November checklist.

Oh my goodness, I suddenly feel so far behind!!  We’ve been engaged for about 6 weeks and here’s what we have done

– Venue booked

– Photographer chosen, just need to send the deposit

– Guestlist

– Decide on color scheme

– DJ (a friend)


Hmm, that’s it!  Next on the list is finding a caterer and I’m going dress shopping in 2 weeks.  Am I incredibly behind or are you ladies just on top of things?
