I’ve booked venue.

I’ve got the caterer (who will coordinate the tent, linens, and tables/chairs/flatware/etc)

I’ve got the officiant (my godfather)

Pretty sure we have the ceremony music too (string quartet)

Fiance was supposed to call the DJ today.

You are further along then me! Just have venue, catering (including linens, etc.), photographer and that’s it. I feel behind too :(. Everyone keeps telling me it is too early to book other things right now. I think in Jan or Feb I will start booking more.

Hiya gals 🙂  I was just thinking earlier today that I feel like I’ve had zero time to catch up on wedding planning…. so this is nice to read up on.

I’ve got the ceremony & reception site (caterer and linens included), DJ, Photographer, cake, and as for the flowers we are pretty much decided but I haven’t made the deposit for that vendor yet.

when is a good time for us to buy our dress?  a lot of girls at work keep telling me no later than late January because of delivery and alterations…. is this true?

@gymdive22- I am a Sept 24, 2011 Chicago bride as well! I think you have all the big things…but don’t forgot transportation (if needed), hair and makeup! I have been engaged for almost a year- so we’ve booked everything except for transportation, hair/make-up and finding stationary for our invitations.

When I booked our photographer/DJ in March- both of them had 2012 brides already…so I got moving! Are you getting married downtown or in the suburbs? I think that makes a difference since a lot of the cost effective but well recognized florists, caterers get booked first sometimes!

Good luck!
