Wowza! I havn’t even picked my invites yet. Your beyond ahead of me… I better light my fire…. lol I’m getting soo excited though. I’ve mocked up our programs for the ceremony. I think I want to do them myself. Maybe just have a printer print them and I will cut & assemble them! As I was reading my mock up @ my desk @ work; I started getting butterflies in my stomach….!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Woot, 9 months out!

In the last month, we’ve made ALL of our big decisions. What a load of stress off. 

Though now I think I might change my mind about my wedding dress… LOL

Hi everyone! OMG is it only 9 months away? I can’t believe it. We’ve picked most of our vendors but only signed contracts with a few of them. I’m getting nervous since our first venue cancelled and we had to find another. Hopefully we won’t run into any other big obstacles.

Our STD’s are hopefully going out this week! Then it’s official! Yikes!

Hi Ladies! Glad to have some Date Twins! We have most the main stuff done.

-Church

-Venue

-Dress

-Photographer

-Caterer

-Cake

-Flowers

I have bridesmaid dresses picked out but they are not ordered yet. Just waiting on DJ papers in the mail to send deposit & thinking of ideas for decor at reception. We are having all the flowers done by the florist so we mainly just have to get ideas for ceilings; arches & other stuff for the tables. We are not allowed to have candles so that is making it a little difficult.

I have mock up of the program for ceremony that I want and a picture of simple invites I want to make & punch corners myself.

It’s starting to come together!!! I’m getting excited.

Yay! It’s going by so fast!! I still have to choose dj, officiant, and flowers. Only thing holding me back is lack of extra money for my deposits :S But my fiance just started a new job so things will be turning around for us financially very soon πŸ™‚ I’m excited about that! I just bought a new dress, we had our e photos done yesterday, and I’ve started some of my DIY projects.

Do all of you May brides have a dress picked out? I’m planning to wait a few months, I heard that even though shops say to do it so far in advance, 4 months is usually enough so I plan on going on my winter break from school since my goal for the next few months is to lose weight.

We have our location booked (ceremony, reception/caterer), invitations picked out and are almost finalized with our DJ and photographer selection. Our venue includes in the room rental an event cordinator that keeps everything the day of in order, so kind of a built in planner is what they called it.
