We also have a day of coordinator.   Booking the photogrpher to take engagement pics and sending out STD is my next move.

Hi date twins! How excited are we??? My Maid/Matron of Honor sent me a text today reminding me that one year from today I will be a wifey. It made me tear up a little. 12 months are going to fly!

Hey twins πŸ™‚

I’ve had 6 months of Northern Living to get some things done. I’m about 4000 miles away from my wedding venue on the East coast, so most of the “little” details I have to figure out this summer. So far, I’ve got the

– venue/reception(same place)
– DJ booked
– Officiant
– Photographer
– Makeup/Hair
– STD’s went out yesterday
– My dress (picked out, but not ordered yet

I’m working on Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, and Groomsmen attire as well as Fiance attire at the moment. Then it’s onto the smaller details πŸ™‚

The next 12 months are going to zoom by! Can’t wait to see pics and hear ideas !
