Me three! We haven’t done anything but set the date and put a deposit for the venue, so I’m interested to see where everyone else is at in planning ๐Ÿ™‚

@jackieee: I’ve been engaged since August so I have a ton of things crossed off my list. Don’t want to overwhelm you… You have plenty of time! We spent Sept and Oct just basking in engagement bliss and have been slowly putting deposits down since November to spread out the costs.

  • Venue/ceremony location booked (same place)
  • Set aside hotel block
  • Officiant booked
  • Photographer booked
  • Videographer booked
  • DJ booked
  • Purchased dress
  • Picked out bridal party
  • Had engagement party
  • Had engagement photos taken

To Do for August:

  • Complete wedding ceremony (we are writing our own ceremony)
  • Begin working on photo guest book
  • Begin working on save the dates
  • Book florist
  • Book bakery for cake

Woo hoo!! How is everyone else doing?

@TinyTina: I am a week before you guys, but I have been doing better with crossing things off the list!

Things I Have Accomplished

  • Reception venue secured, down payment made.
  • Ceremony venue booked
  • Officiant booked
  • Pianist booked
  • Photographer booked
  • Bridesmaids, flower girl, and ring bearere selected
  • Wedding dress purchased in full
  • Veil purchased
  • Started to research and purchase bridesmaid gifts.
  • Researching ideas for our wedding favor.

Things to do in August

  • Meeting with the florist
  • Taking our engagement pictures
  • Picking out the Save the Dates when pictures come in.
  • Finalizing guest list
  • Mailing Save the Dates (this will probably happen more in September).
  • Continue looking for Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts.
  • Setting up an engagement blessing date.

Being a teacher, I wanted to accomplish a lot over the summer. Once the school year starts, I know my time will be fairly limited. I am also one who likes to get things accomplished early (this can sometimes drive Fiance nuts).

Another 6-30-12 bride here! ๐Ÿ™‚

So far we have:

-Booked venue
-Booked photographer
-Decided to DIY music, flowers, and food, so no need for vendors there
-Chosen the wedding party
-BMs/MOH chose their dresses but have not ordered yet
-FI tried on suits he likes but has not bought one yet
-I’ve chosen my dress but have not ordered yet
-Bought our invites (they’re print-it-yourself [PIY? lol] ones so they’re just the blank cards, we won’t print them until much much later, but they were on super-sale & we loved them so we couldn’t pass them up)
-Started working on Save-The-Date Cards
-Went to try on wedding bands & have an idea of what we like

The next couple of months I don’t think we’ll have much wedding stuff to do, until Save-The-Date Cards go out in November. This is the boring part! Haha.

I’m going to be a June 30th bride – YAY!

We’re about to sign the contract with our venue, which will include food, alcohol, ceremony site, DJ and maybe cake.

Been shopping for dresses, maybe have a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress picked. Have the wedding party put together and almost there on the guest list (will probably be a few more tweaks later). But I think I’m on my way. Now to start all the DIY projects I want to do.

Me! 

 

We’ve booked our reception/ceremony venues, our photographer, our officiant, and our DJ. I’ve been shopping for dresses 3 times, but each time was a headache!
