So far I have

  • Booked and put a deposit down for my reception venue
  • Booked and put a deposit down for my ceremony site
  • Booked my photographer (and paid the deposit)

Lots left to do…honestly I thought moving on to other areas would be too soon but now I see that I am wrong. I want to figure out how I want my wedding to look, colors, decor.

Good luck everyone!

Wow! You all have done so much! However, I want to elope/have a private wedding, so I am not planning on doing anything until this Spring as far as getting a photographer, a dress, a mini wedding cake, and the like.

We’re planning a large wedding but haven’t done much. We’ve researched a bunch of vendors, but so far have only booked our Ceremony and Reception sites. Fiance and I plan on deciding on a photographer over the next couple of weeks, then we’ll do engagement photos in November (we thought it would be nice to do them about 1 year before our wedding). Oh and I’m going dress shopping October 6. We’re not super picky about a lot of other details (cake, dj etc). It was more important to get the venues we want. In our area too we’ll be fine to start booking everything else a few months out. We have this wedding show every January that’s geared towards summer brides so we’ll be going to that and picking out most of our other vendors then.

You are all so ahead, which is great, because I think I need the motivation to get started. My wedding got postponed to November 2013 so we could accomodate some guests we really want there. Eversince I realized we would have to postpone it, I’ve been slacking and now am finally back on here getting ideas, etc. The good thing is the extra time has given me the opportunity to look at more venues, check out more photographers, etc. I was kind of just going to settle for whatever and whomever that was available but now I get to check everything out and really get what I want… So far, I’ve only done these:-

1. Bought my dress (I’m vain – what can I say? Trying on dresses was the FIRST thing I did when I got engaged)

2. Bought both Fiance and my wedding bands

3. Started looking at Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts

4. Will be interviewing photographers, florists and DJs, and checking out some reception venues in a few weeks!

So, WAY behind you girls!
