@WeddingBells33: Can you tell me more about the Honeymoon registry. We are thinking about this also, as we combined 2 households and dont really need anything.

I feel like I’ve been sort of twiddling my thumbs because we got all the big stuff booked within a couple of weeks of our engagement in September! What can I say…I’m a planner. 🙂 So now it’s just a lot of little things that really can wait until next year.

Done: Booked ceremony/cocktail hour site and reception dinner site, “familymoon” vacation to Disney with the kiddos, honeymoon cruise for just the two of us, and the photographer; decided on dinner menu during the booking process for the reception site; ordered my dress and veil and one pair of shoes (which are now being reconsidered); tentatively booked an officiant; ordered my flowers from Angela’s Accents (See pic below. I’m having a silk bouquet for myself and for my daughter–the jr. bridesmaid)…and best of all, we’ve already paid in full for everything that we’ve booked, so we don’t have to worry about it.

Still in progress/to be done: Invitations (see below); ordering a dress for my daughter–I found one that we all like, but I need to see if one of those knock-off websites can recreate it in the color we want; deciding if we want a DJ; writing our ceremony and vows; ordering the stuff for centerpieces/table decor because I’ll do that myself with silk flowers; looking into videography, but I’m not sure we’re going to spring for that; deciding on jewelry; hmmm…I think that’s about it.

So, for invitations, I’m thinking of just making cards and handwriting a personal message/invitation inside. We are only inviting family to our wedding and reception: 19 family “units” altogether, and everyone already knows when and where we’re getting married, so it seems silly (to me) to make a formal invitation. Here’s a card I made for some acquaintences for their recent wedding, so I thought I’d adapt it a bit for us and make something like this to send to our families:

And since someone asked about flowers, here’s the picture I sent to Angela’s Accents to have recreated in silk:

Happy planning, everyone! Only about 7 months left!

Oooh, forgot to add that we’re going for our cake tasting on the Saturday after Thanksgiving! Hooray! We live in Texas but we’re getting married in DC…we’re going to DC for Thanksgiving and that will probably be the only time we’ll be there before the wedding next June, so I booked our cake tasting and we’re having dinner at our reception site, and we’ll swing by the hotel where we’re having the ceremony and cocktail hour so we can see the terrace in person. I can’t wait!
