Hi girls…I’m getting married on May 11th 2013!! Omg I just listened to the Jonathan Cain Bridal March and I just can’t wait!! This is such a dream for me!
However, I’m probably not as ready as I should be. We’ve got a venue and a caterer so far! I ordered my dress and shoes…waiting for it in the mail.
Still have to choose my bridal party! its so hard to choose…and I really can’t choose all my friends 🙁
Oh and we’ve got our honeymoon booked!
Thats about it. But I still feel like I have it under control because I know what I need to do and how to go about doing it.
So are there any May 11th twins out there??

Will your Brides maid pick out their own dresses? I would decide on the bridal party sooner than later, so they can be prepared financially.

ME ME ME!
I can’t believe how quickly everything is coming up! Hell, I’m gonna be sending out my invites in a month.
I’ve got the dress & most of the accessories…still need to buy undergarments
Venue is all set…menu picked out…
Bridal Party is all set and honeymoon booked
Just need to get rings, grooms attire picked, and start DIYing my centerpieces till my hands bleed.
I would definitely get that bridal party in order if I were you 🙂

Me too!! I feel like I’m a little behind but I haven’t really been too worried about it. I’m most worried about getting some of the bridesmaid dresses in time. I have one who refuses to go try anything onwe’ll guess we’ll see what happens! We have a venue (who does catering as well), my dress and veil, a photographer… Trying to book a DJ and find a florist at the moment! But oh my gosh I can’t believe it’s less than four months!!

I pretty much know who I want my bridesmaids to be…but I just need to get a way to ask them without offending the rest of my friends.
I already asked my 2 cousins…but I want to ask 2 friends and I don’t know how too! Oh and @adavis8 I am hoping the bridesmaids pay for their dresses but I choose them. I want them all in the same dress.
One of my friends asked me to ask her 10 year old daughter to be flower girl because she was never given the opportunity to do it and just now she would be too old to be a flower girl. But she is already too old for it. I don’t know how to tell her that I want someone younger.

- Wedding: May 2013 - Canal St Inn
May 11th here too! We’ve got a lot of the major things booked, venue, caterer, photographer, etc. We have our bridal party picked out, I have my dress, jewelry, undergarments. Everything else is just details and making sure stuff falls into place, and I’ve already gotten started on so many of those, I’m in such a good place planning-wise, it’s amazing. I’m so excited and nervous at the same time, less than 4 months now!!!

Another May 11th person here! Got the big stuff taken care of, but a lot of the DIY stuff remains…oh well!

Me tooo! if all your big ticket items are done then no stress. maybe telling all your friends who you chose and reminding them that just because you didn’t ask them to be in bridal party makes them less important to you..maybe incorporating some of them in the wedding process might help them feel less excluded! Good luck:)

Urghh..not having a good night! my fiance and my brother thinks I’m wasting money on the photographer..but his work is amazing. I don’t want to get a crappy photographer. I prefer pay more to get what i want. they both came down hard on me 😐
hopefully they would both get over it!

May 11 for us too. We have the chapel, the caterer, the photographer, the DJ and the carriage arranged. Wedding party and their attire chosen. All the girls have ordered their dresses but they have not yet come in. Two are pregnant now so the dress sizing was tricky! My dress, shoes and jewelry are done. I havent got veil or undergarments yet. Invitations to wedding are ready to go in the mail. Have not yet done invitations to the reception. We are having a small wedding and a large reception. The bouquets and all the centerpieces are DIY and we have a lot yet to do on those. Everything is bought but not assembled. The thing we havent done is meet with the officiant or do any of the actual wedding planning. Go luck to all.

Woo May 11th! :>
I’ve been pretty lazy >.> bought my dress yesterday. Need to organize shoes, undergarments, hair, make up… Oh god.
Meeting with photographer this weekend. Celebrant next week to sort out vows. Mum and dad are helping us with invites, cupcakes, photobooth.
We have a quote for the honeymoon, it’s just a matter of paying for it. I also need a passport too.
Cant believe how quickly it’s coming!
