How are things going with you so far? Things are going well here, its hard to believe its only 7 months or so away but I”m sure i’ll be ready. Right now I’m currently a bridesmaid for my best friends wedding on St. Patty’s day and then once thats over I”m full steam ahead with my wedding! I CAN”T WAIT~!

How is Fiance, family and friends feeling about the everything so far? Everyone is really excited. The more idea I come up with the more my friends and family are excited about it. My Fiance is doing well but pretty much hasn’t done anything wedding wise he has a very demanding job so i’m ok with doing most of the work.

What did you accomplish last month?

Well most of my major stuff is done, and has been for quite some time IE: Dress, Venue, decor, STD’s etc.

SO i’ve been working alot on desiging my DIY invitations which are ready to be created. My tears of joy packets are done, my signage is done, My tiara and bouquet have arrived from ebay. My bubbles are almost done (still need more ribbon) and so ready to start going hardcore into things.

What are you trying to accomplish this month?

Do some more DIY projects, nothing in mind right away but on Good Friday my nana and I are going shopping for all of my crafty stuff so after that I’ll be pretty much going nutz! LOL

Congrats to you on your closing of your house! My Fiance and I closed on our last October so I know how much stress that can cause!

Things are going good.  =)  I need to find an officiant one of these days.  I’m procrastinating hardcore for whatever reason.  Other than that, not much else for me to do but kick back and wait for October to roll around.

Im getting stuff done. lol

I just mailed the signed contract out for the party limo bus.

Most of the girls have bought their dress. Though two are taking forever. Its a dress that is being discontinued and even the sales girl said she wasnt sure when they will stop selling it. It sucks! Wish they would just order the darn thing!! Its a simple phone call. Well thats my big issue right now.

And I do have tons of suff I need to buy. Thats where we are right now………..

How are things going with you so far? Pretty good. I feel productive 🙂

How is Fiance, family and friends feeling about the everything so far? Everyone is excited and just waiting for me to hand out lists of things that need to be done. Fiance has been a little out of it, but he gets a pass cause he has so much going on at work right now. The friends are awesome as always.

What did you accomplish last month?

Bought my rehearsal dinner dress and shoes. Picked out the bridesmaid dresses (they have until May 1 to order). Found and bought the grandmother of the bride dress. The mother of the groom has ordered her dress and the grandmother of the groom has ordered hers as well. I finished making the ribbon rings my flower girls are going to carry and we started tentatively picking out invitations. We also bought bowls and finished the chalkboard.

What are you trying to accomplish this month? 

Make a decision on the officiant. (trying to get one pastor to agree, but he never answers his phone or returns calls. I’m thinking we’ll go in a different direction.)

Pick out invitations Order Save the Dates

Decide on cake and set up tasting if we are having a wedding cake. We’re having a dessert bar so we’re thinking of just having a couple of homemade cakes on the bar instead of a formal cake……..opinions?

Set up tasting with caterer

Make a decision on whether Fiance and his dad can provide the sound system we need for the outdoors ceremony. If not, find/book a DJ

 

Feeling like I am way behind at the moment
