How’s everyone doing?
What have you accomplished, and what still needs to be done? Where are you at in your planning?
Can you believe we’re to the one year mark? I feel like I just got engaged, and that was apparently 4 months ago!
I’ve booked my venue and my photographer, I have my catering tasting on 6/6, and I’m buying my dress this summer. Fiance is in charge of our DJ and the honeymoon, which will be a surprise to me. I haven’t picked my bridesmaids yet and probably won’t for another couple of months. I’ll probably be doing a dessert bar and have started kicking ideas around for that. We’re doing our own photobooth, I’m doing succulents in glass jars for both centerpieces AND favors… etc etc etc. So many details!!! Ugh.
One more year! It’s gonna fly 🙂

We booked our church, reception, photographer and I ordered my wedding dress which doesn’t arrive until some time in october. We will do our tasting some time in July. I still have to look for flowers/centerpieces which will be done the first week of june. also have to pick out invitations and centerpieces. My mom will be doing the favors so I don’t need to worry about that.Oh I need a dj also lol. gotta add that on too!

New here and figured this would be a good post for my first.
I am so excited for the big day to only be 1 year away.

Fiance is in charge of the DJ and photographer. The photographer will probably be a friend of ours.
Honeymoon is planned but not fully booked.
I will probably be going dress shopping in June!!
