Thanks bluejay2201!  That’s what my friends have said – I think it is dress withdrawal.  Regardless, we’ve got almost everything…caterer, florist, photographer/videographer, dj, rentals, church, priest.  I am working on a DIY project involving the invites (which are done).  Even though I feel ahead of the game, it is coming so fast!  We are almost at 4 months out which is just nuts.

May 16th in the Chicago area! Woohoo for May brides!

 A few months ago I thought I had all this time…then the holidays kicked in and now I’m behind on invitation planning among other things..yikes! My big plan is to get back into the wedding planning BIG time this month to get everything back on track.

I alos have doubts about my dress every once in a while…i even had a dream where i was wearing a totally different dress and of course I looked GORGEOUS in it. ๐Ÿ™‚ but once i put my dress on again (its’ hiding in my mom’s closet), i saw how awesome it was again and felt better about it.

I find it funny that a few of us are looking for peonies for our wedding. My florist said it might be tough since you never know what the weather will be like. Especially Chicago weather. But don’t worry girls, all florists always have a good back up flower to give that same look as a peony.

Good luck to you all in your planning and congrats!!

Am I the first May 24th bride? It’s the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.

We’re getting married where we live – in Honolulu, HI. 

Lately I’ve been feeling like I’m slacking so I am starting the new year refreshed and motivated. I am hoping to buy my dress this week, book the florist, and book the DJ very soon. My fiance is designing our invitations and driving me crazy because I had hoped to have them done months ago.

Still left to do: rings, honeymoon, groom’s attire, attendants attire, and little odds and ends.

Here’s to a happy five months for everyone!

Is anyone else making their own (and their bridesmaids’) bouquets? I’m deathly allergic to real flowers, so figured I’d go the DIY route on this, plus I think they’d make great keepsakes for all the girls when I give them crystal vases for Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts! But I don’t know where to start… Our overall wedding colors are ivory and black with chartreuse accents, so I’m thinking I want an ivory bouquet and they will have green ones. Does anyone have flower type suggestions? What about sources for purchasing inexpensive, but not cheap-looking faux flowers?

Thanks!

I’m also May 24! We’re getting married in Louisville, KY, but no Derby theme for us ๐Ÿ™‚ We still need to get a DJ and a cake and we’re working on rings. Oh yeah, and invitations. Plus all the tiny little details that are starting to drive me mad now that it’s finally time to get them done! Probably my biggest undertaking is doing our own flowers — with fresh flowers!

Vic you are so not the only one! I think I’ve hit meltdown status. I don’t even want to think of anything wedding related. But there is so much left to do, so I guess I’ll keep plodding along! I told my Fiance I couldn’t wait until the wedding was over, and he just laughed and laughed. And then I gave him a black eye (in my over-active imagination anyway!) ๐Ÿ™‚ I think once we get the last of our vendors nailed down and everything is squared away I’ll feel better. Right now I’m going nuts! I’m glad I’m not the only one ๐Ÿ™‚
