We held off on planning for a while so I could graduate, move to the same state as Fiance (instead of 300 miles away), and start my new job! Ive been here just over a month and am totally overwhelmed with everything to do!
Fiance just quit his second job so he could help me with plans- i’m in love all over again! 😉
What do you have left to do?

Omg where do I start. Well lets just say I dont have a dress . I’m working on purchasing my 3rd (but FINAL) dress. I should have it by the end of the summer. I have an appointment on July 21 for my BMs to decide on a dress. Then the wkend after, July 28, Fiance and I are going to the tux shop and find tuxes for the men. We don’t have an officiant yet . I’m working on that. Hopefully we can find and book one by the end of July. Also we started looking at wedding bands but haven’t purchased any yet. Hopefully that will be done by the end of July as well. I was looking at my online checklist and it says I have 31% completed so that should give you an idea of what we have done! Hopefully we can get to 50% completed by the end of the summer. We just took our e-pics this past weekend! I was so excited about that! We should get the pics back hopefully within a wk and then we can send out our Save-The-Date Cards by July 13. Give yourself realistic due dates to accomplish everything by so all those tasks won’t seem so overwhelming, that’s my advice to you.
