This month, I’m doing three things. Booking hair and make up for myself and the ladies, blocking off hotel rooms since there is only two hotels on my town, I am sure I have to do that early. And most importantly, I’ll be picking out my dress!

I’m working on save the dates.. thats about it at the current moment.

Once all of my orders arrive, I’m going to begin adding the lace to all of my candles and vases.. which is hundreds of candles and vases. Lol.

I am at 8 months and 27 days as of today! Ahhhh!! This month I am planning on finalizing all the details – hotel room blocks, salon appointment, and picking out my wedding cake vendor. 

I still haven’t found my dress….gulp. Thats #1 on the list of things to do but I find that each time I go shopping and leave empty handed I get a little less enthusiastic about the whole process and I also lose a little more hope that “THE ONE” is even out there for me 🙁

I have the wedding party selected, the reception venue selected (and almost paid for), wedding centre pieces selected and the caterer booked.

We are meeting with the photographer this week and we have been talking with a possible ceremony site also this week.  We have a DJ selected and we will be meeting with him shortly.

I need to start dress shopping ASAP.  So much to do and so little time.

@kansas_nurse: Hi date twin! 9 months?? Why in my head was I telling myself I had 10 months left?! Darnit…I have so much to do, but I’m trying to put off most of the stuff until after I graduate nursing school in April. I still have to…

  • find my dress (I haven’t even tried any on)
  • make a decision on Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (I’m going back and forth on whether or not I’m going to pay for them)
  • figure out the wedding cake
  • schedule catering tasting 
  • schedule engagement shoot
  • order Save-The-Date Cards and invitations
  • finalize guest list and get contact info
  • figure out all decor
  • schedule pre-cana classes 

…and I’m sure there’s more. This is possible, right?

@kansas_nurse:  YES. PRESSURE. YES.


– Dress

– Suit

– Bridesmaids/Ushers asked

– My ring

– Venue + Catering (included in venue)

– Church (and organist and choir)

– Flowers

– Photographer

– Hairdresser

– Makeup



To Do:

– Guest List

– Make Invites

– His ring

– DJ

– Cake

– Seating plan

– Bridesmaid dresses

– Gift registry

– Probably should check with Church if we need to do any more

– Oh yeah start going to church more often again

– Plan service also



I’m actually pretty nervous about the invitations, more so than any other part I’ve done I think. Everything else has been pretty private, this is the bit that we send out to basically everyone we know. Eek.

I am having major issues finding a hair stylist/make up artist in my hometown. I have 4 more places to call tomorrow. I hope this can be figured out ASAP! It’s stressing me out!
