I know!  June isn’t too far off.  So far i’ve done the major things as well – venue – check (ceremony and reception), cakes – check, photographer – check, flowers – check. 

Right now my main focus is on finding the dress.  Have you found yours?  I do have a favorite, but I am going back for one final “tryout” before I purchase it.  So for me, right now it’s all about the dress!  Then i’ll get to the bridesmaids dresses.  I’m hoping to have my dress ordered by mid October (hopefully I can go this weekend) and the bridesmaids’ ordered by the end of October.  I feel like i’ve done so much already and now i’m just waiting on the date to get closer so I can kick it into high gear.

yay! another June 4th bride 🙂

I have booked the ceremony and reception sites. Photographer, florist, and officiant are booked.  I have my dress and 2 of 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.  The guys are wearing suits so they already have those and we found ties this past weekend.  My Fiance found a ring he likes, just have to order it online.  I am researching and pricing out limos and hairstylists and am about to book the honeymoon (not sure if it’s too early but I found a great flight….)has anyone else booked their honeymoon yet?

oh and STD’s are out already because we have lots of out of town guests coming.

 

Next up for me is starting at least one of the many DIY projects i have planned.

We are honeymooning Costa Rica 🙂

For DIY projects we are doing our own invites (and already did the STD’s), I am doing a donation instead of favours as well so will either have a seperate card or include a small note at the bottom of the menu card. 

We are doing table numbers (although might buy those luminaries from etsy) and i want to do those tissue paper pomanders for the aisle.  As well i want to do a unique guestbook, thinking maybe mad libs style.

We are also having cakes as centerpieces on each table, so I need to make 15 cake stands – whew, that is exhausting just thinking about everything i want to do.

@BlueChampagne:  We’re date twins, and I have completed all the things on your Done list as well!! Makes me feel like we’re right on track!!

I’ve also dived into a couple different DIY decor projects (which I’m loving) and our E-Pics are this week! Woohoo!  Looking forward to designing the STD’s once we get the E-pics back….

Did you ladies get any good discounts/deals by booking your honeymoon so far out?

OMG. you guys are so far ahead! My date is may 29th… well that’s close to june! lol

and so far i have this done for sure:

• ceremony/reception/food place

• photography

• cinematography

i have basically found the dress i love! lazaro 3050. Just need to find a place who sells it for cheaper than where I tried it on. As for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, I’ve picked it out, but i’m waiting for my jr bm to try on some this weekend that matches the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress or if they can fit in the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. I told them that dresses will need to be ordered in by nov. we are ordering online for their dresses since the local bridal shop has the dress for over 200 and only 140 online.

I’m trying to book wedding officiant and cake next month. i am having the hardest time finding a male officiant in my area! i don’t want a female.

i already have an idea of who i’m getting for ceremony music, but i’m not sure about a band or dj for the reception… what do you guys think is better?

I’m taking engagement pics at disneyland in january!

I’m doing my own flowers and centerpieces. Lots of different terrariums. And getting flowers from the LA flower district so that’s not gonna be till close to the wedding.

 

that’s all i have so far!! i was going with the timeline on things to get done on theknot. should i be booking everyone already?

i have my fiance in charge of the honeymoon because he wanted to do it.

Aaagh you guys are totally freaking me out!! We set a date TODAY. ceremony and reception sites are booked (well, contracts are in the mail) and our date is reserved with the caterer (who will also do the cake). I have one hotel block booked (yes Bees, I did all of the above yesterday!! I rule!). And.. That’s it. I am feeling like we will never be ready in time :-/

@BlueChampagne: have you considered a Candy Buffet

I am not sure what area you live in but if not in so ca, look at my ideas and find someone in your area that can do a good job….. one thing a candy buffet must have an attendant to keep clean and full.
