I was feeling very confident in the progress that I’ve made so far but now I’m considering hiring an even more professional make-up artist and a videographer. Apparently, I like spending money Frown

  • Wedding: August 2013

Wedding specs: 250~ guests. We’re switching it up with a 5:30pm cocktail hour, 6:30pm beach ceremony, and 7pm-11pm wedding in a room that overlooks the beach

Dress: Purchased & in for alterations. 

Accessories: I have my shoes. Trying to figure out my veil… http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/veil-or-no-veil-28#axzz2TxcSuUDd and jewelry

Bridesmaids Dresses: The girls are all picking out their own within a coral-blush-tan color scheme.

Flowers: Nada! Well, almost. We’re just doing simple baby’s breath for the bridal party to hold. Other than that, it’s primarily candle centerpieces, which I just bought. I still need to buy vases to hold lemons though.

Photographer: Booked and filled out all their questionaires ๐Ÿ™‚

Officiant: Booked. We filled out the “cermony builder” but need to find a fitting, non-religious reading

Catering: Included in the venue. 

Cake: Chosen…although we totally got strong-armed into even doing a cake. We preferred pies. We still need to order our specialty ice cream though.

Groom and Groomsmen attire: Groom is headed to JCrew to buy a suit while the groomsmen have been told what they need- light khakis, navy skinny tie, navy suspenders, white shirt

Wedding rings: Need to get these, but might need a custom fit due to the design of the engagement ring..trying to keep cost within reason.

Venue: Need to re-visit in June or July to talk final details- lighting and such.

Wedding Paper: Ordered today but need to mail as soon as they come in.

Decor: I need to rent lounge furniture but it’s contingent on our final number of guests which is really difficult. What to do? 

Table/chair rental: Included in the venue.

Linen/Dinnerware: Included in the venue.

DJ/MC/Speakers/Music/Entertainment: Band is booked!

Bartender: Open bar and bartender included in ithe venue. My fiance is a brewer at a local craft brewery so we need to arrange for his beer to arrive.

Hair/Make-up: Appointments for hair and make-up trials need to be made. I am waiting to hear back from her.

Favors: Need to do! I think we decided on limoncello

Parties: Rehearsal dinner is booked at a nearby restaurant. I need to talk to local bars about the afterparty.

Shuttle: This company is so unresponsive- really making me nervous!




Marriage licence: Need to do

Flight tickets: Booked for Greece!

Gifts: Have some ideas but need to buy.

  • Wedding: August 2013 - An amazing non-profit retreat

Had a fitting on Saturday and the top half of my dress is now fitted to me ๐Ÿ™‚ It feels like MY dress now. My next fitting will be in July ๐Ÿ™‚

Went to the venue on Saturday (it’s out of town) and decided some pretty major things— such as having a rehearsal and a rehearsal dinner, fiance is pushing for the “better” reception room (thank you honey!) and we figured out the bar situation. Feels good. Oh and invites went in the mail yesterday and are slowly being passed around locally.
