Hi!

I’ve recently become a day-twin for May 28th, 2011! ๐Ÿ˜€

How are you all holding up?  We just got engaged a few weeks ago so I don’t have tons of time to plan everything. =/

I am a May 28th Bride!  We are doing a destination wedding in Key West…Next week my Fiance and I are going down to check out our vendors and venue (all booked with references…am I crazy?)  So far we have the photog, venue, church, flowers, dress, tuxes, and the invites are picked, but not done (until we pick the menu next week)…I am going to pick up my ring today!  All the little details, however are up in the air…and I am definitely stressing about those little things!  I feel like I’m at a standstill until I check out the venue, meet the planner, florist, etc…but this stalemate is SUPER stressful!!!

I also realize that from now on I will be both the best 1) bridesmaid, and 2) wedding guest.  I don’t think you realize how much it stresses the couple until you’re on this side of it!

Me too!  We’ve been engaged since July and are planning a destination wedding at the Grand Canyon.

Here’s what we have so far:

Photographer, Catering, Venue, Day-After Brunch, Hotels for me and the guests, Flowers (I think), Hair + Make Up, Officient, Invites (we were super on that and sent them out in September!!), Color Scheme/Theme, dress bought, Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses bought

Still to do:

Actual logistics planning, little details like escort cards, decoration, etc., ceremony, rings, menu, dance floor + music, lighting.

I’m sure there’s more but those are on my mind right now. 

Yay for day twins!Smile

I am also a May 28, 2011 and I feel like I am in crunch time. I think I go to bed thinking wedding, and wake up thinking wedding. I cannot believe the day is almost here. We have been engaged since April 9, 2010 so I got a lot of big stuff done early, but now I am having some anxiety. One of my bridesmaids(and groomsmen) moved to London, and she was my go to girl. Granted she is still very much in contact and still as helpful as ever, I just can’t run to her house and ask what she thinks of something. So her is my list of what I have done so far…..

~Church is booked

~My dress and veil are in. They are at my sister’s house

~Venue is booked

~D.J. is booked

~Serbian wedding band is booked

~Florist is booked

~Photographer is booked

~Cake is ordered

~I have my cake topper

~Bridesmaid dresses are ordered, and should be in Feb.

~My wedding shoes are purchased

~I have my table numbers

~Vases are purchased for centerpieces

~Hairstylist booked

~Make-up artist booked

~Save the dates are mailed

~Invites picked out

 

And here is my list of things I need to do…..

 

~Order invites

~Book rehearsal dinner

~Meet with Pastor

~Order the tuxes

~Order the flower girl dresses

~Find a limo or party bus

~Print our donations paper

~Figure out place cards

~Order flower girl basket

~Find a bolero for me and the flower girls

~Find a guest book

~Figure out a card box

~Fianalize our dinner menu

~Order our toasting Flutes

~Print our programs

~Figure out our honeymoon

Ugghhhhhhhhh….. I can’t keep going. Please point out if I am missing anything

I still need to:

  1. Finalize the music for the ceremony
  2. Buy paper and envelopes and do a test run of the invites after finishing the design
  3. Buy a slip for under my dress
  4. Talk to our musicians about what they’ll be playing and when
  5. Buy the decor for the ceremony and make sure everything matches correctly
  6. Do a test run of our arbor decorations
  7. Do a mock up of our centerpieces and make sure they look all right
  8. Buy the fabric pieces that are ‘framing the centerpieces on our tables
  9. Get the tableware we’re using
  10. Decoupage the vases for our centerpieces (do a test first)
  11. Figure out how our “photo area” is going to work and get a large frame and fabric
  12. Find some sort of card box
  13. Figure out what to do with 250 paper cranes that were donated to me ๐Ÿ™‚
  14. Confirm makeup and figure out how I want it
  15. Do a hair trial and dye my hair
  16. Talk to our Emcee and those who may do speeches
  17. Get addresses for our guestlist
  18. Send bachelorette/shower guestlist to Maid/Matron of Honor
  19. Buy stamp pads for our guest tree and ask FOG to draw it
  20. Figure out the bouttonniere situation
  21. Find some fun games/activities to keep people involved
  22. Buy drinks
  23. Buy and decorate cupcake stand

    That’s all I can think of right now, I’m sure there’s a ton I’m forgetting

    New to this website. Never noticed you can pick a month to look for other brides getting married in that month. I to am a may 28 bride. So excited. A little over 3 months left until the big day. I only have a few things left to get done before the big day.
