  • Wedding: June 2013

Let’s see, what do I have done…

  • Ceremony, rehearsal dinner, and reception venue booked (catering is done by the venue and our cake is paid for by them too, so I know where I’m getting it.  No cake tasting yet, though!)
  • Dress!!
  • Veil and jewelry
  • Wedding colors: red and champagne
  • BMs’ dresses found but not yet ordered (that should be happening soon)
  • Wedding bands
  • I’m doing my own flowers, so no florist.  I’ve already got the BMs’ “bouquets” (a single big silk magnolia flower), and I’m planning on ordering my own flowers as soon as I have the money
  • We’re doing our own music using A/V equipment, so no DJ.  I’m working on our playlist a little at a time
  • My FI’s uncle is a minister, so he’s going to officiate
  • We’ve got a tentative guest list, but it’s not final yet
  • Working on registries and wedding website.  Registries are HARD!
  • I have the invitations but we haven’t printed them yet
  • I know what I’m doing for my Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts

I really need to get on the whole photographer thing…  And work on our honeymoon stuff.  I’ve just been so darn busy lately (as you can tell by my posting on WB haha)

WOW hats off to you ladies! We are June 8th and so far we’ve book the venue and are picking our photographer this week…yes, that’s it. But I have been working on save-the-dates/invites for awhile now (I’m a graphic designer), and I have been gathering lots and lots of info and inspiration. That counts for something, right? 🙂

@jrzvol:  We’re having a friend officiate for us.  Do you know how this works?  I got ordained through ULC but I’m not sure how to make sure it’s legit.  LOL the reason I did it was to try and learn the process before asking our friend to do it.  So yeah…that’s a need to do that hasn’t gotten anywhere :/

@ashtrtz:  I count on my fingers so I could easily be wrong but isn’t it 10 months?  I read your post and almost jumped out of bed b/c 9 months sounded SO CRAZY close.  I counted and I get 10…which isn’t as scary as 9 🙂 LOL

@IUrebekah3RT:  !!! Awesome 🙂  Post a pic.

I’m trying to get my BM’s measurements to order their dresses (we’re all in diff state/countries) but they’re worried about weight gain/loss.

I’m just trying to get numbers now so when it’s do or die time I’m not trying to hunt people down for their measurements lol!
