– Close to hiring a band

– STDs chosen but not yet bought/printed since we won’t send for a few months

– E party planning started

– Sending cards to ask the BM’s this week, groomsmen all settled

– color scheme settled

– heavy into the dress shopping, 2 strong contenders but not planning to make a decision until a year out

I also keep obsessing about invitations, so I have an idea of what I want them to look like and I think I know the stationer I’ll go with. I’m loving the planning so far!

@soon2bemrsL:  Yay, date twin! πŸ™‚  You guys have a good amount of things accomplished! I am looking forward to booking more things. We really wanted to make sure we had our reception venue and photographer. I then promised my Fiance that we could take a break on things until the summer. With him living out of town right now, it makes things a bit more difficult.

I forgot to add that I have my wedding band as well. Found it for $50.00 in a hock shop. It has real diamonds across the top, white gold and fits perfectly with my ring πŸ™‚ Oh, and yes, I confirmed that the diamonds are real.

@Ms_Smitten: That is awesome. hock shop finds are always good. We bought FI’s band last week on liquidation, which was awesome. Now we just have to find a band for myself, I am so going to check out some hock shops. 

p.s: I haven’t heard that term since I left Sudbury. πŸ™‚ makes my happy.

June 9, 2012!!

A lot of ya’ll are on top of things- awesome!!

We (mainly me lol) have a few things done:

  • Booked ceremony/reception venue (did this in March… we took the 1st Saturday in June that was available & the prices went up last month- so we did it at the perfect time!)
  • Wedding colors chosen: Black & White with pops of pink
  • Bridal party in mind: NOT SURE WHEN TO ASK THEM… ANY ADVICE?!
  • Rough draft of guest list
  • Designed invitations… will probably be edited a million times before the time comes to actually get them printed!
  • Photographer chosen: She did our proposal pictures & we love her; just need to sign a contract πŸ™‚
  • Narrowed it down to 2 wedding planners/coordinators: Want to have one chosen around the 1 year mark!
  • Dreaming about all the dress possibilities: Probably going dress shopping in September (if I can wait that long!)

I’m also planning for June 2012, and we’re just working on booking our venue now – I thought we had plenty of time, but the place is almost booked solid next spring!  It’s a rude awakening.  But maybe some of the other details can wait a bit…I’d love to draw out the process and enjoy all of it.  What does everyone think the next most important thing would be?  Booking a photog, maybe?
