  • Wedding: August 1900

So far I have booked:

  • venue
  • caterer (cake included)
  • photographer

And I have bought:

  • My dress
  • Parts of the centerpieces (still have a lot more to get)

I also asked my Maid/Matron of Honor two weekends ago.  She said yes and has been helping me since.  It’s so great to have her help and Fiance is glad to get a break.  😉

I’m feeling rather behind, lol.

So far, we have

  • venue
  • caterer (which came with the venue)
  • officiant
  • day of co-ordinator
  • musicians for the ceremony & cocktail hour

I’m having a horrible time finding a photographer, which is one of the most important things on my list…  And, it’s not just being picky (I swear); a lot of the ones I like are either booked already or (way) out of my price range.
Also still need

  • a DJ
  • a cake (have an idea of where this will be coming from)
  • all of the decorations
  • a dress
  • STD’s, Invitations, etc.

Seems crazy to feel so overwhelmed already (but I do)!

Um, much farther behind than everyone:

  • Date
  • Colors

…Seriously. That’s all we have so far! Lots of ideas on things, we’re in the process of checking out venues and hoping to book one in the next few weeks, and trying to figure out who will officiate. I guess our date isn’t 100% for sure until we book a place, but since we want a Sunday date every place except one has had it open so far. I have lots of ideas in my wedding folder!!

ETA: We’ve also picked out the invitations we want to use, which will be useful once we have an official venue!

haha wow I guess I’m behind…

we’ve got the date, the venue, and my dress.  We’re getting engagement pictures done in November, and if we’re happy with the results, we’re booking the photog for our wedding, so that will be one more thing checked off.

Honestly I don’t get the rushing – I’m having so much fun with it that I’d hate to get it all over with so quickly!

Ditto, I don’t like rushing, but as we’re on a very teeny insy wincy budget, we have to figure things out and save for them, so they can be purchased/booked in time. So…that’s my excuse, lol! :-P~
