I think the fact that it’s now really 2012 is motivating me to get lots of wedding stuff done. Since New Years Day I have addressed and mailed all the Save-The-Date Cards, chosen and bought a dress(!), picked out bridesmaid dresses, bought me and FI’s wedding rings, and booked a florist, which was my last vendor to book. My to-do list is all of a sudden shrinking! Any other September brides had an incredibly productive first few weeks of the year? What are you all working on?

Yes, I completely agree! Now that it’s 2012, I feel like it’s get-my-butt-in-gear time. I’ve done most of the same things as you except I’m waiting about 1 more month to mail my Save-The-Date Cards. My current projects are invitations (DIY), ceremony music and hair/make-up. Oh, and I probably should start figuring out the rehearsal dinner soon. I feel like my to-do list won’t end!

Yep, I think for everything I get done I also add one more new thing to my to-do list!

I’m really jealous. I feel like I have hit the wall with my own planning. I was really good until the holidays. Granted I’ve gotten my caterer done this month and I’m working on invites…I just lost my ‘mojo’ for lack of a better word. I’m visiting my venue with our coordinator next weekend. Maybe she’ll give me the kick I need to get energized again.

hitting 2012 officially put a fire under me too! I contacted all my bridesmaids and set a dress shopping date. Started a better eating routine. Finalized the contracts for my hotel room blocks, finished the website, met with my friend and designed/ordered the save the dates, finalized last 4 addresses on guest list. Went ring shopping with fiancee last night.
Nice to write all that out, even though I know that there is so much more to do, it helps me to stay sane and makes me so happy when I can cross something off!

I have also been super productive since the New Year! Last weekend bought my dress (YAY!), ordered Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, had 3rd (of 4th) groomsmen sized, completed centerpieces, almost completed favor bags. Picked up our invite binders and have it down to two – now for the wording and font! And this upcoming weekend is our food tasting! So exciting 🙂

We went on vacation over Christmas and new years, but we both decided when we got home we’d really get going on wedding planning! We haven’t done a lot I guess but at least we’re starting to make lists etc. so exciting!
