I thought I had a lot crossed off until I read your lists! Feeling like a slacker over here. For October… Tackling DIT design of the invitation suite then getting quotes from local printers. Finally choosing an officiant and DJ.
Not ready to finalize the cake vendor yet. I want to do more tastings!

jhorn: What a pretty candy display! We’re actually doing a chocolate fountain. I think doing a candy display (even if for favors) would be a bit of overkill for the sweets! Thanks for the idea though.

@supershopper We haven’t booked the honeymoon yet, probably next week but I have seen some good deals out there. Airfare however is another story- it’s expensive regardless, we’re trying to see if using our miles helps. I had no idea Caribbean flights were so expensive!
@spoonoutmyheart I think you can’t go wrong either way with a band or a DJ, it’s just a personal choice. We’re having a DJ, actually a friend/professional DJ- he is saving us a ton of money so that’s how we made our decision.
@MissBoston You still have 8 months! You will definitely have everything done by then. I made a month to month ‘to-do’ list that is helping to keep me on track with planning, just focus on the tasks for each month and you’ll be fine.
Has everyone decided on their ‘look’ yet? My dress won’t be in until February and I find it difficult trying to pick out shoes and a veil without seeing it on me again =/

Things I have done:
Cake baker booked
colors picked out
bridesmaids dress picked out
Music playlist done
Not sure what else to do at this point. I would like to buy the invatations but i’m not sure if it’s to early. I feel like I should be doing more but i dont know what. It still feels like it’s so far away. I wish it would hurry up

Well now I really feel like I have to get the ball rolling. I had a reception hall picked out for June 11th but I found another one I am in love with that would be $2000 cheaper for June 10th (and that is inclouding the photographer, DJ and minister). So I am back to square one. I have so many FABOLOUS **wink** DIY projects saved but I guess I should start actully doing some now… 🙂 Any other bees getting married on a Friday??
