Start looking for MUA’s – if you plan on getting one.  As an Oct 2010 bride, I thought I could wait on that til the spring… and I did… and they were ALL BOOKED.  I ended up finding a wonderful one via the hive, but it was a total nightmare and I would have had so many more options if I worked on this when I was in hyper planning mode pre-holidays!

  • Wedding: October 2011

There was a thread on this not too long ago, so don’t mind the copy and paste:

  • our venue booked and partially paid for
  • meal choices selected
  • all bridal party asked
  • STD’s have already arrived (sending them out in January)
  • engagement pics done
  • photographer chosen (but not officially booked yet)
  • colors/theme chosen
  • centerpieces chosen
  • flowers chosen
  • DIY photo-booth plans have been started
  • I’ve already been on one dress shopping excursion
  • favors have been selected
  • Hair and Makeup booked (they’ll be coming to our hotel)
  • Officiant chosen but we need to find out if it will be legal. We want my cousin to get ordained to marry us but NYS likes to make everything difficult for their residents.

We’ve yet to find a DJ in our budget that’s not a total tool. Fiance and I met with one guy who told us that he PIRATES his music. Um, yea… that really makes us want to book with you, buddy!

I’m pretty far along, I think:

  • Bridal Party
  • Venue
  • Caterer/menu
  • Photographer (doing engagement pics in the spring)
  • DJ
  • Photobooth (will be the favor)
  • Cupcakes
  • Invitations chosen (not ordering until timeline is final)
  • Hair and makeup
  • Shoes


Still have to:

  • Dress – going shopping this weekend – Maggie trunkshow!!
  • Flowers finalized- I know what I want but need to get quote from florist or determine if I’m going to DIY
  • Bridesmaids dresses
  • Guys attire
  • Wedding Rings
  • Officiant/ceremony
  • Register

I am getting married in a restaurant/lounge LOL. I wanted to have the ceremony and reception at the same place so thats what we’re going to do and its huge, it has two floors. There is no rental fee, considering we spend a certain amount on food and beverage. So I just have to look into someone to perform the ceremony, invitations, wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses. Centerpieces,photographer and music are done! altho i do feel like im missing something important

I’ve got a vague idea of what colors I want and I know who my bridesmaids/MOH are.  I have my wedding band because we bought it with my ERing.  I’m not to worried.  We’re in a smaller town so we don’t really have to worry about booking things this early.  We’ll start after the holidays when we’re less busy.
