@keepsmiling19: I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s done so much!  Who knows, you and I might be done planning a year from now with so much done already.  I’ve had a lot of help because my FI’s mom is a florist and she had a lot of connections.

Done so far:

venue, caterer, DJ and guitarist for ceremony, photographer, videographer, dress(!), hair & makeup, and florist. 

We’re working on an officiant because we’re having a Jewish wedding and we don’t currently live where our parents do where the wedding is being held.  Also we haven’t decided on invitations yet.

Did you send out engagement announcements? We told a lot of people on the phone and word of mouth to family.  I feel like it’s just so long until we get to send out save the dates!

Good luck!!

And yes, I am total type A and probably insane for planning this far in advance.

Holy crap you guys are making me feel bad!  So far…we have looked at venues.  We haven’t even placed a deposit yet because we have yet to decide on a place. Oh, and I also asked my BMs to be BMs.  And I guess most importantly, we have been saving mucho dinero.  I applaud you guys for having so much together already!

– Still need to find a Caterer and finalize flowers!!

Here’s what I’ve (or we’ve, because the Fiance has been helping, gotta give him credit!) done:

  • Booked our ceremony/reception venue (catering is included)
  • Booked our photographer
  • Booked our ceremony music (string quartet…yay!)
  • Booked our DJ
  • Got my dress (!)
  • Picked a color scheme
  • Picked a general look for centerpieces
  • Decided on how we’re doing table numbers
  • Planned an engagement party for Feb.
  • Opened a joint checking account with Fiance for wedding-ish funds
  • Asked my Maid/Matron of Honor, MatOH, and BMs to be in the wedding

Listing this stuff has made me feel super accomplished.  Woo!

@runnerbee & @tinytina – Hi date twins!

Ooh I forgot, we booked our officiant, too.  He’s my childhood pastor, and he’s going to come in from out of town, so I’m super pumped. πŸ™‚

The past few weeks have been busier for me.  So far I have:

 

Venue booked, down payment made

Photographer booked, down payment made

Deposit made with vendor for invites/paper products

 

My biggest accomplishment this week which has me the most excited is I finally figured out my theme.  I made my first inspiration board and I am in love with where that part of my planning is going.

I wouldn’t have been in a hurry to book stuff so soon, but both my venue and photographer were already running out of dates in May/June of 2012, so I figured I better pull the trigger and make sure I got my first choices.

Woo hoo! Booked our photog last night… I’m so excited!

Now to find a videog… Ugh.

Anyone else exhausted with vendors? I’m so ready to move on to the fun details, but I know it’s too early for that.

I am so going to send my SO the link for this thread. He thinks I’m insane and obsessive for trying to plan this early. Also, you guys officially have me scared to death. I have nothing booked. Not one single thing. We’re not even looking at venues until August when we’re visiting our destination wedding city!

I only have the really nebulous things “done”:

  • Picked colors. I don’t have a theme and honestly didn’t know I needed one! My 13 year old son says the theme is “Pretty Happy Princess Day” but…um, yeah. No.
  • Asked my bridal party
  • Researched vendors in the area
  • Looked at dresses online
  • Have a vague notion of menu and floral ideas. We’re leaning towards a mid-morning wedding and we sure do love us some brunch! Give Mr. Scrubs a plate of corn beef hash and he’s a happy man. I’m still torn about the flowers. Part of me would like to DIY them but part of me cringes at the thought of all the work.

But that’s pretty much it! Well, I am going to look at dresses with my sister this Sunday but I doubt I will hit the jackpot on my first time out.

Ooh my. 

I have attended bridal shows and made lists of possible vendors for everything! I haven’t booked anything yet! ahh! I’m feeling behind now.  

First up in the venue then I won’t be so anxious.
