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.

Things I have done:

Venues booked

Cake baker booked

photographer booked

DJ booked

Catering booked

colors picked out

dress bought

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

Since ours is so late in June (6/25), we still have 9 months (minus 3 days). 


Picked venue

Booked caterer (who will also take care of tent, chair, table, linen, china, glass, and flatware rentals, set-up and take-down), set tentative menu

Booked photographer (family friend)

Booked stationer (friend of mine)

Guest list

Made and mailed save-the-dates

Have my wedding ring (my grandmother’s)

Began designing my dress with the friend who is making it for me

To do:

Florist and flower design

Hotel rooms for guests

Guest transport to/from hotel



Hair – who will do it, what style

His ring

His clothes



Figure out how to set up the venue (my mom’s house) to best accomodate the gathering

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??
