Hello fello bees!
I seem to be a bit of an overachiever. Our wedding is in just under 9 months.. and I’m kind of bored? I posted not long ago about being “over” the whole thing.. and have just realized maybe it is because I’m just done and have nothing to keep me busy?
so far we have;
created and sent Save-The-Date Cards
Created invites… they’re just sitting there waiting to be sent.
Designed centrepieces.. all the parts are just sitting there, waiting to be made (can’t do this YET because they are the submerged kind…
Ordered AND RECEIVED Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses
Ordered Groomsmen tuxes
Flower Girl dresses: picked
Ring Bearer outfits: picked
My dress is in, I’ve had my first fitting… holding off for more for a while because I already need it taken in.
I’ve ordered linens
I’ve ordered and received all my program stuff… template is done and ready but I’m holding of.. just incase (people are flakey sometimes!)
Venue (reception): booked
Ceremony: booked (tentatively, we’re waiting to hear back on an alternative)
Card box: Started… I’ve discovered I’m nowhere near artsy enough to pull it off so just waiting on some reinforcements from a Bridesmaid or Best Man
Engagement party: planned by inlaws, just around the corner
Veil: picked, being made by my mommy
Shoes: have a pair, not sure they are THE pair
Decorator: meeting tomorrow…
Day of co-ordinator: booked
… see what I mean?
I have 9 months an I’m more or less done…
Any tips on how to make the time go faster? LOL I’m bored 🙁

@MsLouella: I find the worst part is that I keep seeing things that I want.. and I have to be like CRAP I already have a lot planned so can’t KEEP adding… but man.. I wish I could without the costs spiralling out of control 🙁

Haha! Will you guys help me plan my wedding!?!? Damn ladies. You guys rock. I have like…nothing done. Just venue, catering, church, my attire. I’m currently looking for a new photographer as mine has turned out to be…not good.
So yeah, seriously, help me. Show me your escort cards and invites and centerpeices, all that good stuff!

@LilacViolet: First off: DATE TWIN <3 I’m more than willing to help.
Second: you said you have nothing done, but yet.. venue, catering, church and your attire.. that’s huge! I think you’re in a good place 🙂
If you checkout one of my earlier posts (My DIY paper fun) I have menu sample and invites and reception cards… have yet to print my escort cards (just to be safe)

Venue for ceremony and reception booked. DJ booked. Calling celebrant to book her in. That’s it. Photography will be done by a family member who does wedding photography, just gotta meet with her.
9 months sounds far away but it’ll be here before we know it!

@mayflowerbride13: You know what? If you’re really that bored, you can help me create a thumbprint guest book for people to sign. Wink wink. 😉
You’re way ahead of the game than me! I only have venue, photographer, videographer and dress.

@Yokyee: Don’t tease, I would! But… What is it?

@MsLouella: Our date is May 11 2013 also … this is 2nd wedding for us both , but want to have more like a fun reception with a wedding thrown in. We’ve decided some things, and started gathering items for table decor etc .. I don’t know whether to feel like I’m overdosing on wedding stuff or way behind! haha

@mayflowerbride13: Haha. Since I still have so much left on my to-do list, I haven’t completely thought out the guestbook. However, I know my Fiance really likes the thumbprint tree idea so I want to make one sorta like it.
http://www.etsy.com/listing/94227814/diy-kissing-wedding-couple-silhouette. I really like this etsy design but I will probably need space for 350 names so I need to think of what other design to add to this so people can sign. Maybe make it nighttime and add individual stars in the sky for the names? I will probably pre-stamp everything too so there will be no messy thumbs at he reception. 🙂
If you have any ideas or want to play around on the computer, please be my guest! Lol
