I haven’t even started on invites yet.. 🙁

This month I am hoping to have done:

• Flowers/finding a lavender supplier (whom I just found!) and bouquet/boutonniere design

• Settling on either a band or a DJ, both of which I’ve been in contact with (leaning towards the DJ)

• Trolley transportation for the guests to the reception

• Inquiring at the Church about starting Pre-Cana

I’m working on invites. I also just purchased my centerpiece footed bowls to bring to the florist (she told me it is a bit too early to pick flowers, since weather in this area can affect bloom times).

Also working on the e-vites for our post-wedding party (actual wedding is very small, but we are having a big bash two weeks later).

Oh, and I tried on wedding rings last night! Picked one, but a lot of $$, so not sure yet.

I’ve gotten most of the big stuff mostly settled, and have been working semi-organically lately. I guess music and the final touches on my attire have been my main concerns this month…

My to do list for this month is:

  • Sign a catering contract
  • Get a good idea of what FH will be wearing
  • Take engagement photos (Sunday! Must pick outfits!)
  • Get our wedding website up
  • Finalize what we want to make for decor, so I can start on those projects before Christmas
  • Decide if I want real or handmade flowers (I love the felt bouquets I see everywhere!)

October has been a productive month for me.  We sent save the dates and hired a DJ.  I also interviewed florists and am close to a decision on that. 


Our next task is to research bakers.  Yay tastings!

Researching hotels for guests and reserving a bloc of rooms

Met with caterer (who’s also taking care of rentals, set up and take down) to talk about organizing the space in case of rain.

Should be getting sketches of the back of my dress from my designer friend soon

Started the wedding website

Next to do: flowers!
