OMG.  I just read this post and realized that March 20, 2010 is LESS THAN 9 MONTHS AWAY!  More like 8 months.  Scary/exciting all at once!  πŸ™‚  Good luck with your planning, ladies!

Do I dare to ask how far along everyone is in their planning?

So far, I have booked the photographer, booked the ceremony site, put two different reception venues on hold (will decide in the next couple of days which one to book), confirmed the officiant and our attendants.  Am finalizing the guest list.  Working on a wedding website (via The Knot).

I have not yet thought about Save-The-Date Cards or invitations.  No dress yet, although I’ve tried on 30+ and narrowed it down to one I like.  No cake yet, either.

Decisions, decisions.  I’m using The Knot’s checklist to keep track of everything.

@Marigold – wow, you are on top of things, girl! 

I need to get moving with my Save-The-Date Cards (I think this acronym is so hilarious) and hotel rooms.  I think I may pull the trigger on the dress soon, too.  I would wait another couple of months, but we will be in Hawaii for Feb-March, so I need to get it in January before we go away.

Onward with the planning!

Well, we’ve been engaged for more than a year already, so we have a venue, a dress, photog, officiant, caterer and cake (included with caterer).  We just ordered Save-The-Date Cards over the weekend, but they might not be here for 21 days.  I was too cheap to pay for faster shipping.  We have invitation materials, but will be printing our own. 

Of course, I’m sure I will be falling ridiculously behind in the upcoming months.  Most of the work was done before I started my new job.  Also, ours is a destination wedding, so every time we go to wine country, I schedule tons of wedding stuff to do.

@Soon2BeMrsC – fantastic – it is definitely good to be ahead of the game.

Way to go, March 2010 brides!  I am not usually obsessive about planning, but when my older sister got married, it was chaos.  I vow that I’m not going to repeat what happened with her.  She left EVERYTHING to the week before.  She’s really into DIY, and likes everything to be perfect.  It was beautiful, but we all worked like slaves to make it happen.

Y’all, we’re almost down to 8 months. How crazy is that?

So far we have: photog, ceremony and reception venue, florist (through the venue), caterer (through the venue), potential cake company (through the venue, but also exploring other options).

In the works: we’re working on Save-The-Date Cards currently, I’m going dress shopping at the beginning of August, Fiance is researching hotels in the area (that provide shuttles – hooray) and checking into DJs. My cousin is going to design our invites so I need to talk with her about that. I’ve also emailed the pastor that married my parents 11 years ago – I’d love to have him there with us. (If not, I have a back up or two in mind!) And I need to get going with a web site so I can put the address on our Save-The-Date Cards.

Way to go ladies! I can’t wait to hear about everyone’s progress as we get closer! Oh, and anyone applying to be a bee?

(Also, I realized right after posting that this was a March 20/21, 2010 thread, but I figured I would just join in the end-of-March love. :D)

@DCAnna – Definitely join in the end-of-March love!!  It’s cool to have the input of other bees who will be going through roughly the same planning stages at the same time.  It’s also given me a heads-up that I need to get moving with certain things.

I thought about applying to be a bee.  I am already on the internet more than I *should* be, but also sometimes go for weeks without checking this site.  It’s a guilty little pleasure.  πŸ™‚  So, no.  How about you?
