I have a place for people to sit (venue) and I have a photographer.
I have no caterer, no dress, florist, DJ, video, bridesmaid dresses, etc. Fiance just finalized his groomsmen yesterday.
yeah…….i need to be doing something.

I am right there with you! I only have venue, photog and makeup booked. That’s it. And Fiance still has to ask a couple of his groomsmen.

You’re definitely not alone, I have a venue (with catering included, thank god), dress and that’s it. I’m working on a photographer/makeup… otherwise I’m gonna be a last minute girl!

@Aubergold: No that was really random, I found someone I was interested in before I even found the venue and she emailed back saying someone else had inquired about my date so I jumped on it. My biggest concern right now is DJ but I put Fiance in charge of that so we will see.

@Natalieh86: That’s why I’m bothering with makeup at this point. A photographer I’m chatting with suggested a good one who happens to be open that weekend. It’s just working out that way.

Don’t feel bad–we haven’t even nailed down our venue (going over the contract, right now, however)–let alone anything else! Eep!

Get a move on it girl!
I’ve booked and had my makeup and hair trail.

I am so with you, back in May we were travelling 200 miles from our city to our wedding town almost every weekend until we finally found the right venue. Since then we’ve booked our photographer, a friend of a friend. Other than that, nothing! We’ve just made the decision to self-cater and I’m planning to do as much DIY as I can, but I’m starting to panic a little as I realize it’s only seven months away…

We haven’t even picked a venue 🙂

Threads like this make me feel a lot better than the threads announcing that STDs/invites have already been sent. 😉
I found once it rains it pours – I book one thing and all of a sudden 229 other things somehow get booked too.

I try to keep up with my knot email. They give me the monthly checklist and I cross my fingers I have done it already. I need to find someone for hair and make up. Other than that… I think the major things are done?
What does everyone else consider the “BIG” things? I get nervous I’m missing something
What else am i missing?

I’m proud of myself for having the meat & potatoes done before the madness of holiday sets in:
Venue, Caterer, DJ, String Trio, Photographer, Videographer, Baker, Invites (deposit put down, not ordering for a while), Dress, Bridesmaids, Boudoir photos done, Flowers, engagements happening in a month, favors figured out…
Feel like I’m missing a million details.

I haven’t truly started either! I have ideas and have contacted the venue and the caterer but haven’t signed any contracts. Guess I never thought about how fast the months will go once the holidays are upon us. Hmm possible freak out moment approaching.

Girls – can I join this thread!? I’m a June 2, 2012 bride….that’s close enough, right? I feel like I haven’t done much, either.
We booked a place, and have decided on a caterer (meeting with them in October, they said they would hold our date) and a photographer (also meeting soon, same deal). Right now I have a broken right ankle which means I can’t walk OR drive. You’d think I’d be spending all my time wedding planning, but it’s surprising how much of it you actually have to GO somewhere to do! I’ve picked out a dress I really adore, I’m just not 100% yet. I figure I have lots of time to order it since they said it would take 14 weeks (plus alteration time).
We still don’t have a DJ, rings, accessories, Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (I haven’t even asked one of the girls yet!), and Fiance hasn’t asked the groomsmen yet although we know who they will be (2 of the 3 will be my brothers). We haven’t really figured out decorations either, although I know where I want to get my flowers from. Invites and Save-The-Date Cards are another thing altogether….rehearsal dinner….honeymoon…..
it’s nice to see threads like this 😉
