hooray, almost date twins! Do you have an emerald cut ring?? (Username) cause if so, me too!
Congrats on setting a date!! Well, I don’t want to be THAT guy, but I have most of it planned already 🙄. But thats only because a) I’ve been engaged for 8months already, so I kinda just did it all in the beginning. And b) I work in the wedding industry so it was easy to make decisions because I already knew what I wanted and what pricing was fair and how to get good deals etc.
What I have done:
-photobooth almost totally bought (doing DIY)
-bar planned/bartenders booked
-wedding ceremony musician booked
-hotels booked (for fiancé&i, my immediate family, and for getting ready since our venue doesn’t have a bridal suite)
-flowers planned but not yet purchased (doing DIY)
-wedding party picked
-I have my dress! And my shoes and wedding band
-all invitation pieces are designed and printing for STDs was just ordered, just waiting to get them
Still have to do:
-book MORE hair and makeup because I’ve added people
-get linens ?!?!?!
-….cake?!?! I don’t like cake and I’m procrastinating on this.
-get a sparkly curtain for behind our photo booth setup (we have a badass giant moon 🌙 for people to sit on but we need a night sky!)
-make a hotel block 😓
-get invitations and STDs printed! Assemble, send
-signage for around the venue
-and the biggest task of all….get. The man. To. A suit store. It took me an entire year to get him to buy one damn sport jacket for my best friend’s wedding. A YEAR. No idea what he will look like at our own wedding 😂
If you need any advice let me know!!! I have no idea what the industry is like where you live but feel free to ask me anything you’d like!
