Hi!  We’ve booked our venue, caterer, and photographer so far.  I have my dress, too.   I don’t think you’re behind schedule at all!

You’re not behind 🙂 

I’m trying to do things earlier rather than later. Any effort to reduce stress. 

We have our chapel, reception venue, photographer and my dress. Our reception venue is also a catering company, so we still have to pick food options, but we kinda have it out of the way. 

I’m currently talking with florists to try to get that nailed down.

We have the venues caterer and baker (since the are both included in the venue) and the dress. I found a photographer I love but we keep having to reschedule our meeting. Hopefully we will meet them and have that taken care of this Friday!

Ughh… I feel so behind. I have my venue chosen, but haven’t booked it yet. I’ve been waiting for the venue guy to send me a proposal for 2 weeks now! He keeps saying he doesn’t book more than a year in advance, so the way he sees it it’s not a year until the 23rd. So frustrating. At least the good thing is that the catering is included with the venue. I do not have a dress yet; I haven’t even started shopping for that. I’ve been working on DIY centerpiece stuff though. Also, Fiance and I are hoping to go shopping for his wedding band this weekend!

You’re not behind at all. We booked our ceremony venue and reception location (having picked out actual menu yet), we’ve booked our photographer and my make up person. 

I’ve gone dress shopping and found one I love, but am still looking (they say you need to absolutely buy your dress by June so you’re definitely ahead of the curve) 

You’re actually way ahead of me!

I feel so behind. We’ve picked the venue, but haven’t booked it yet. We’re doing that this week. No dress, no photographer, no DIY crafts started. Nothing!

@missfenway , I am jmares, just changed my name. Yes! I got my proposal. It had some surprises in it. 1. It stated that there is a 100 person minimum for saturday nights. This was a problem since I only have an 80 person guest list. The extra 20 people would ruin my tight budget. I panicked for a few minutes then decided to wait until I spoke to the venue rep. After I spoke to him, he accomadated my request and made an exception for me! Yay!

The surprise #2 was that he added $1 per head from his original quote, but that was no big deal. Since he agreed to accomodate my 80 person party, I let the buck slide : )

Just waiting for updated proposal now. So looks like I’ll officially book him this weekend! So exciting!
