This is my very first post ever! I’ve been observing from a distance for months but have been too scared to post!
I am getting married on March 3rd, 2018. Paying for and planning the wedding myself! Here’s where I’m at:
Venue picked, almost payed off.
Deposit on photogapher and musician
Officiant paid for
Dress bought and paid for, in my closet until alterations day
Maid of Honor has picked out her dress
Centerpieces bought and table runners/place settings have been picked out
Cake cutting set and stand have been picked out
Invitations, save the dates, and guestbook are almost finished being created by a wonderful Etsy seller.
Bouquets have been designed with an Etsy seller, not paid for yet.
I have pretty much decided on a caterer but haven’t put down a deposit yet
Still waiting on my fiance to buy his tux!
Oh and our wedding bands have been made and are almost paid off.
I think that’s everything! My only problem left is my decor. We’re getting married at a wonderful preserved historical village at an original church house from 1887. I want some wildflower garland to decorate the steps railing in front of the church and a 5 foot tall cross that will be at our alter. Not much to ask right? I’m going very minimal on decor to be both budget friendly and let the genuine feel of the venue shine through. But in all my research even DIYing the garland I want is over a hundred dollars! I am awaiting a quote from an Etst seller who’s garland I have fallen in love with but I fear the worst lol.
As I do not have many friends outside the one girl in my wedding my Maid/Matron of Honor, I think I will make a thread and introduce myself. It would be nice to have women to talk to about wedding things!!
