@Romantigua:  Most of my friends booked the limo 4-5 months ahead of time, but some of them had told me that they had a hard time finding limo buses for their June weddings, so I wanted to get a jump on it. Plus, booking it this early allowed us to shop around a little bit to find the best deal (they can get expensive!). I am in medical school and have board exams and residency interviews coming up this summer and early fall, so I had to get a big jump on most of the big stuff since I will be MIA for a few months, lol. Good luck with the dress shopping!! πŸ™‚

Another May 25, 2013 bride here!!! It’s great there are so many of us, and it seems like everyone is very far ahead of the planning game – I thought I was going so fast, but it looks like I’m right on schedule with everyone else. I am in Massachusetts and have many connections to local vendors, the planning process has been easy!

So far, I have the following things done:

Ceremony/Reception Site booked and deposit paid

Caterer booked and deposit paid

Photographer booked and deposit paid

Florist booked and deposit paid

My dress

My shoes (two pairs – heels and glitter toms for dancing!)

Bridesmaid dresses picked out

STD & Invitations picked out and designed

Centerpiece vases collected and purchased (vintage milk glass)

 

In addition to the wedding here in Massachusetts, the very next Saturday (June 1) we are hosting a reception in Madrid, Spain for family and friends over there (my family is from Spain) so we have been busy planning that wedding as well!

It took me forever to find my dress! I tried on probably 65 dresses and went to 4 different stores. Then i ended up buying my dress online since it was an online only dress and love it. I knew exactly want I wanted and didnt want to settle for anything less.

Everyone keeps saying I wont have anything left to do months before my wedding, which is the plan! I want to be stress free and not worry about thing! =)

May 18th, 2013 here! So far we have the church, venue, caterer booked. We also have the photographer booked. I have my dress, my jewelry, my veil and I have asked my bridesmaids. We have picked out purple and silver as our colours.

When do I need to hire a florist and hairdresser? And when should we send out save-the-dates?
