Here’s what i’ve done so far. My crazy work schedule (im a nurse) has distracted me a bit so hoping to get back to things asap!

  • Venue, Ceremony Site
  • Caterer
  • Photographer (This was easy bc it’s in the family)
  • DJ
  • Videographer (FI hated this idea bc he thought it was unnecessary but I have such bad long term memory that I vouched for this ;))
  • Florist
  • Officiant
  • Wedding Dress 😀
  • Picked out bridal party but no BM’s dresses yet….
  • Oh and I know I’m way ahead at this but I booked my hair and makeup person too.

Hoping to get e-pics done by end of summer/fall. Meeting with travel agency to discuss honeymoon pricing, Scouting limo prices as well as looking at bm dresses are next on agenda. whew! lots of things to get done

Date twin! Booking the groom is always good haha 😉 and don’t worry. I haven’t booked anything since I posted on here. I’m in a little bit of a lull.

@Karissa: That’s my wedding date, too! We just went with what our anniversary was so that we didn’t have to learn a new date.  We became an official couple on 07.07.07! Smile

I have everything booked and ordered. I am now just working on putting the rest of my projects together.  I have all the supplies, wording etc for them though.

@Karissa:  I typed in July 2012 wedding, came across your post and almost thought that I HAD WRITTEN IT. That was SO weird. My wedding is July 7th too! I feel pretty accomplished… I THINK I have created my own wedding invite using pocket cards, have my DJ, videographer, photo booth, venue for ceremony and reception, ya da ya da…. STILL HAVE a LOT to do though! I hope all of your planning is going well and you feel even more accomplished!!

Best wishes
