@knvprincess143: Hi date twin!!! I can’t believe how fast it is coming up. I got engaged in October of last year and thought 19 months was going to drag, but it really hasn’t and we are almost in the home stretch!

I have my dress, bridesmaid dresses, Out of Town bags, venue, DJ, flowers, cake, invitations, groomsmen attire, shoes, hair piece…oh heck, I have everything done, I even have my table number holders and program bellybands all done, just waiting for the programs to be printed. I am a total type A and we had most of this booked before even the 1 year mark.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the planning!

Yay! We’re finally on the home stretch.  I’ve been engaged since January and this 16 month engagement is really, really long for me.

Done: Dress/veil/shoes/earrings, bridesmaids and dresses, hair/make up/nails arranged, rehearsal dinner booked, venue, cake, catering, photography, videography, DJ, flowers, favors chosen and will be assembled in April, StDs done, invites ordered… I feel like I’m forgetting something.

 

Still to do: Book string quartet, Fiance needs to ask the rest of his groomsmen, fauxtobooth, secure officiant…. hmmm….

This thread scares the crap out of me. I still need a cake and flowers, plus we haven’t ordered invites or started working on our ceremony. Fiance hasn’t chosen groomsmen (though I’ve been bugging him FOR EVER) or decided on what to wear.

I need a drink.

Ugh..don’t remind me. I didn’t have as long as an engagement as some of you lucky bees, I got engaged in August and after waiting 10 yrs I wanted to get this done as soon as possible…lol So far I have, venue/food, DJ, photographer, ordered dress (be here in Feb.), cake, Maid/Matron of Honor dress (no BMs), guest book & fingerprint tree done, garter & cake topper ordered, STD, and that’s about it. I still have not mailed STD (missing addresses), thought about wording for DIY invites, done some bridal party/guest favors (making oreo balls-so have to wait a bit longer to cross them off), and a whole list of other things. For me January is going to be a busy and expensivie month. That;s when I meet w/ florist, buy rings, finalize venue/food arrangements, mail off STD, rental company booked (outdoor ceremony), order flower girl dresses (being made in ETSY) and order/DIY all the litle things for wedding like table numbers, programs, ect. Really 5 months…man I gotta get my ass moving (I think as I sit on my ipad and read about all the tihings other brides have DONE!)
