The top three things on my May to do list are:

1) order Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses

2) get a florist quote

3) put down a deposit with the caterer

 

As an ongoing project I’m starting to collect addresses via email.  I want to get the big stuff nailed down by the end of May so I can start focusing on the small details.

I NEED to get the florist and cake this month. It’s bothering me that I do not have it done.

Finish guest list, design and send out Save-The-Date Cards.  Start researching invites and hair/makeup…

I am a bit behind as we just set the date and picked a venue.  So for this month- I need to find a Band, attend the hotel food tasting- (which is next Friday-Yay!!), pick my bridesmaids dresses, and start looking into invitations.

Yeah November Brides!

For me May is “Invitation Month.” We just got a new stationary vendor (our original, that we booked months ago, quit unexpectantly a couple weeks ago), paid the deposit, and just started working out the wording.  I hope to have all of the addresses by the end of the month. -getting all of the addresses is SO much work!!!

I also want to start our registry and work on website 🙂

EVERYTHING! I only have 6 months to go and have done nothing with the exception of looking at venues. I know I will get it done, but I’m packing in as much as possible.

My major things are:

1. Find a venue

2. Decide on invitations

3. Find a wedding dress

4. Find caterer, photographer and floral designer

5. Decide on, design and send out Save the Date cards

We need to do our invitations this month, too. We are doing our menu selection tomorrow and will order the invites after that. We are also finding a hotel for our guest block and meeting with florists. November seems like it’s getting awfully close!!!! So excited!!!

we are starting our invites,…. just FYI we got ours from annbridalbargins.com and for 100 printed invites and responce cards we paid $134 I think we hit the jackpot and then we went to papersource and got the trifolds we wanted now we are working on those. And my mom is going to start writing the address (she know how to do calligraphy)

So much to do! Less than 6 months!
