Just wanted to see what other brides have gotten accomplished so far?
I’ve bought my dress, sort of picked out a bridesmaids dress style, booked my photographer/videographer, booked my make-up and hair person, and scheduled appointments with florist next month, I also started making a list of DIY things I want to accomplish (i.e.bridesmiads gifts, signs, etc.) – kind of started on some of them..

We’ve booked a contract with the venue which includes both the ceremony/reception sites, as well as catering and cocktails. We’ve also booked our officiant and photographer.
I go try on dresses tomorrow!

@MrsSully: Woohoo March 23!! 😀
I couldn’t start planning much until this month, but I have my dress, our tuxes picked out at Savvi, our church, officiant, reception site (with catering), our photographer (although he’s flaky, getting frustrated), and almost our DJ!
I haven’t thought about flowers yet… When are you supposed to book those? I feel like that can wait a little, I’ll have to research that a little bit.

Forgot to mention I have my ceremony and reception venue all picked out. Good to know that I’m not the only person getting things checked off the list early.
Good luck everyone!

I’ve got the venue (comes with caterer), photographer, DJ, and videographer all booked. Mom just put the deposit on my dress yesterday.
We have the bakery and church picked out, the deposits just need to be mailed.
We’re also booking our room for the honeymoon soon – you know, since it’ll be spring break month and all.
I haven’t done much about flowers besides looked at pictures – one florist told me (at a wedding expo) that you can wait until after you have the BMs dresses are picked so they can match the colors. (If you’re set on your colors, I guess you can book the florist whenever.)
Glad to hear everyone’s making progress.

We have: Ceremony Venue, Officiant, Reception Venue, Caterer (haven’t chosen the exact food though), Photographer, all of my attire, Grooms Attire, Bridesmaids Attire, Groomsmen Attire, FOB suit, sent out invitations for engagement party, bought string lights, burlap, tulle, doilies and mason jars for decor, designed Save the dates (need to be printed and mailed), have most of the guest list, invitation designs are well on their way, took engagement photos.
We’ve decided on but haven’t done/booked/bought: Flowers from Whole Foods, Rings, Tables/Chair/Linen rental, DJ, in the process of making wedding party gifts, Hair & Makeup.
So far, I know of three showers that people have offered to throw us (Mom’s best friend, MOH’s mother and my godmother) I’m assuming at all of their homes. The bachelorette party I’m leaving up to my Maid/Matron of Honor my only input is no penis straws hahaha
