@CupcakeLove:  I just realized yesterday that with less than 6 months to go we have a lot left to plan and purchase.  We have such a tight budget ($5K) that I have to plan accordingly and every purchase is heavily researched and hemmed and hawed over to make sure it’s the best price and necessary to the wedding.  I know we’re going to go a bit over but I trying really hard to keep the overage as minimal as possible.

I still need to order my dress, shoes, and accessories.  Plus, we have to pay the balance on the venue.  FH decided he wants to hang some paper lanterns so I researched that and found Luna Bazaar through the Bee.  We have our menu finalized and our drink table planned out (my mom offered to buy the booze, yay!)  I still need to order a banner for the venue site, a menu card to frame for the buffet, a drink menu card, and a myriad of paper products including the tablecloths.

I feel a bit overwhelmed at the moment but I need to start checking major things off the list.  We are sitting down to review our vows tonight.  I want them to be finalized because I am ordering a ketubah with some of our vows on it.

Oh and I have to get FH’s measurements in another month or two so we can order his white linen suit.  I was hoping to find a better deal locally but we really haven’t had the time to browse local shops.

I’m very excited! I ordered my dress first week of May. Location of ceremony and venue for reception are booked. I’m ordering the invitations next month. I’m having a small destination  wedding with about 25 people so not too stressful. Smile

Okay, after throwing myself a pity party yesterday over all of the things left to do, I forced myself to be productive today.

I ordered the tablecloths and napkins from My Paper Shop (http://www.mypapershop.com).  They had great deals on tablecloths for purchase that turned out to be cheaper than renting.  I went even cheaper and ordered poly lined paper tablecloths which are supposed to photograph beautifully.

Bermuda Blue Paper Octy-Round Table Covers Citrus Green Luncheon Napkins - 240 Count

Did I mention that I am a budget bride?

While visiting our venue this past Mother’s Day, FH remarked that he liked the paper lanterns strung up on the porch from the wedding held the day before.  So I went on Luna Bazaar and ordered blue and green lanterns in 3 sizes for us to string up on the porch for our wedding (http://www.lunabazaar.com/).

I just sent him a text letting him know that our color scheme is now in blood since I finally ordered color coordinated decor for the wedding.  So turquoise and lime green are officially our colors.  This wedding just got real!

I’m so jealous of you girls with smaller weddings!  I’m super stressed with all the costs of our 200 person wedding.  We just picked out our cake last weekend which was fun 🙂

 

I’ve got to get the boys to pick out the tuxes and I’m trying to figure out when the fittings are supposed to be.
