I’m only seven days different, I wanna play. :p haha

We have a semi-permanent guest list (and a few invite choices). I have my dress (well, it’s ordered. Will be here this May.) Have my veil and undergarments as well. We have looked at and narrowed down our venues to three… That’s about it, honestly.

I’m waiting until May to really “dig in.” Getting my dress this early was kind of a fluke, but I’m glad. πŸ™‚

@AmeliaBedelia: yay we are date twins!!

But I want to play too since Im also the week before LOL But so far we have our venue booked… I have started to gather my supplies for our various DIY projects (wedding stationary, favors, etc). We are meeting with florist, photographers and DJs in hopes to book soon and Ive started looking into dresses and shoes

Im glad we are starting early because it seems that we are able to get better pricing… we actually got our venue at 2010 prices (we booked last November) and still got those numbers shaved down a bit. Im just overly excited and cant stop myself from looking into everything LOL

@MELIS5A: YAY hello fellow Cinco de Mayo bride! :p

@DIYDIVABRIDE2012: Yeah I have my super-crazy DIY notebook, haha, but I’m having a hard time deciding which ones I *really* want to do. I think my new goal is to narrow it down by April or so. Once I pick my venue for sure I’ll start deciding what will look best in that specific place. Oh and thank you – I get a lot of surprising compliments that people like my screenname! haha. It’s a nickname. I bet you could never guess my first name. πŸ˜‰

It feels so far away but not really. I’m not sure! haha

@DIYDIVABRIDE2012: Oh wow well keep us updated on your DIY! Luckily you do have enough time for a lot of those!

Grad School is keeping me pretty busy so I feel like the bulk of my stuff will (need to) get done between May and August this year. πŸ™‚ Plus we are moving in July. Just so hectic! I think once I get my hands into more this summer it will feel more like a reality! At this point, I don’t even look at “countdown” type things; I’d be like 3948320493 days? Seriously? πŸ˜‰

Just put the deposit down for our church! Going to meet our minister *hopefully* this weekend. If all goes well we’ll book her.

Our engagement session is also booked for April 21st. I want lots of time to play around with my pictures AND get a photo guest book made πŸ™‚ I will also have my makeup and hair trial on that day and if I like her I’ll book her.

April 15th we’ll be going down to David’s bridal to get and most likely buy the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. Already got them picked out and all my maids are happy about the choice so far.

Late April I will be booking appointments to meet with our DJ and florist.
