Even though I think I have the big things crossed off the list, I feel like I’m so behind!!
What is on your list to do this month??
I have to:
- Get the invitation wording to our printer
- Find out how long our bridal party table is and wether or not the venue has a table
- Follow-up on uplighting

I guess the better question for me is what’s not on my list! I only have the following completed:
-Ceremony site booked
-Reception site booked
I am planning on going dress shopping this month, hopefully finding a photographer, and getting the guest list finalized… Glad I work well under pressure!!

I can’t believe we are at the roughly 6 month mark! Time is definitely starting to pick up!
We are definitely working on our honeymoon plans. For some reason that has been really overwhelming for me. We’re also taking our e-pics today. So excited!

I can’t believe I’m getting married 6 months from today!!! I NEED it to get here sooner! Since we are having a mini Destination Wedding, there’s really not much to do. I wish there was sometimes so the wait wouldn’t seem like forever…

Just emailed the designer our invitation wording! Can’t wait to see some of her designs, and I’m SO glad I get to cross off another item on my to-do list!

Another awesome realization about how close we’re getting — we’ll all get married before the newest Bee. I just read it in the blog and the fast approaching date smacked me in the head again.
This month I hope to get our DJ and Caterer nailed down. Those will be the last two large vendors we need to sign contracts with.
I’m also hoping to book our honeymoon, pick out a pattern for the flower girl dresses and formally ask the ring bear (I asked his mom a month ago.)
Over the holidays I hope to start working on putting my invitations together. My grandma is working on a drawing to put on the side and the wording is finished. I still need to get the inserts designed.
I’m not feeling stressed or behind yet so that’s good.

I also can’t believe we’re at the 6 month mark, but at the same time it feels so far away. Since we’ve been engaged for 16 months already, I am way ahead of the game, so we’re taking a wedding break until January 🙂 In January things really ramp up and get more real, looking forward to it!

holy cow! I knew it was approaching, but for some reasoning see this post and all of your to-do’s just made me realize how crazy busy I should be working….
My fiance and i will have busy work schedules right before our wedding and will be moving. I better get my butt in gear this holiday season to get a bunch of stuff done!

Since ours is a destination wedding I feel like it’s all out of my hands, so I’ve been working on the honeymoon right now. Looks like we need to raise the budget again who knew?! -_- Next week we are visiting FI’s parents for thanksgiving, and his dad owns a Hobby Lobby, squeeee!!! He told me I get free reign to go crazy in the store, but everything for decorations will need to be picked out next weekend so its all pretty crazy, I’m just showing up with a bunch of pictures and hoping I can find everything!

Just emailed a signed contract for the rehearsal dinner venue! Yeah! Not on my original November to-do list, but so glad I checked off another box.

I have a ton of this to do this month!
- Sign contracts DJ, officiant, makeup artist/hair stylist for the bridal party
- Book honeymoon
- Order paper for DIY invitations and have them printed/print them ourselves
- Find a cake maker!
- Update our wedding website
We are considering adding an online registry of stuff from Etsy to our conventional department store one. If we decided to that, then we have to add this to the list too:
- Contact sellers for our ETSY registry. Wooo!
