- Wedding: August 2018 - Banquet Hall/Conference Center
Great thread! I’m like you in that it takes us forever to compare vendors since we are in 4 different locations (we are in an LDR and our parents live in separate states as well). So anything accomplished feels like a major accomplishment since it involves so much coordination haha.
We got engaged June 25, 2017 and our wedding is August 25, 2018.
So far we have done:
Feels good to make progress! You can do it!
PS – sorry for the double post, it wouldn’t let me edit ugh.
I forgot about this
Since last posting, we’ve booked our day-of-coordinator and DJ. I’ve just ordered my veil. Got the table numbers figured out (DIY), just need photos from my fiance’s family which I should get around Christmas, then can put those together. We’ve done 2 out of 4 premarital counseling sessions. Save the Dates sent back in Sept? My SIL designed them, and she’s also designing the invites, which I think she’s sent off to the printers, so hopefully we can send out the invites in the next month or two.
Planning to meet with the reception venue next month to start planning menus/details, as well as potentially meeting with the pastor to go over ceremony details and also starting our first dance wedding lessons!
Things are slowly coming together, it just still feels like there’s a lot to do! Only 178 days left now!
My wedding is an elopement so it will be fairly low key…I have gotten these tasks done:
venue ($85), officiant ($60), photographer ($200), bouquet ($10) bought but not assembled, cake ($25) and wedding rings ($250)
We decided on a cabin with a hot tub for the minimoon over the weekend but haven’t yet reserved.
I still need a dress and shoes. Fiance will be wearing a black dress shirt, vest and jeans. Still need to get the vest.
Most likely, since there will be 10 of us, we will be going to a resturant for a celebration before we head out on the minimoon.
We are going to look at the pavillion at the lake we reserved for the ceremony. I cannot wait to see what lake views we have nearby. I have been at the lake and that is where we wanted to get married, I just haven’t seen the actual pavillion yet besides in pictures.
This is the dress I am considering
