  • Wedding: September 2011

We’ve booked ceremony and reception venue, our caterer, florist and photographer.  I also bought my dress.  I just ordered Save the Dates, and will be getting them soon!  We need to get our engagement photos done, but we might do that over our spring break.  Now I’m working on figuring out bridesmaids dresses!

I’m planning to get married September 24th, hopefully! The only thing I have is my dress & some ideas..  I’m wanting to do a destination wedding and so right now I’m torn between two areas.. I’m going to a bridal show this weekend in one & a bridal show in the other in February so I am hoping by the end of February to have every thing picked & deposits made. I hate waiting but I don’t want to just go by what the internet shows either I want to be able to meet with people & see the venues in person.

September 10th bride here!  We have venue, church, DJ, photographer, limo, my dress ordered and a baker.  Planning on ordering the girls dresses next week and I’m meeting with a florist tomorrow.. We’ve been engaged since July 09, so I’ve had a while to plan!  🙂

We’re getting married on 9/16 – so far we have a venue, a caterer (who is going to organize the rentals for us too), a DJ, and I’ve bought my dress. My next priorities are a photographer, hair and make up person, and getting the save the dates out. After that I’ll be able to relax for a little bit before thinking about the bridesmaids’ dresses and invitations. I guess we also need to register.

Venue (ceremony and reception), DJ, day of coordinator, and photographer are all signed and deposits paid. Save the dates are stamped/addressed and ready to go out on March 1st. We are also registered, but need to finish up choosing bathroom/bedroom stuff.

By the end of the month I should have caterer, officiant, florist, cake, dress (maybe), and stationary done.

Woo!

Seeing what everyone else has booked already for their weddings I really feel like such a slacker! 🙁

I’m getting married 9/4 and I have the venue, photographer, videographer, DJ, harpist for ceremony, purchased the dress, booked the hair dresser & makeup artist, did engagement photos, sent out save the dates, booked the florist, and registered. 

Still need to order invites, choose bm dresses, get favors, and book the limo.

I just have the venue, photographer, and caterer booked. We are also just about done the bridesmaid dresses and I’m going shopping for a wedding dress for the first time on Sunday (yay!). After my dress, the next things on my list are the officiant and a DJ.

Our wedding is September 3rd.

We have booked the chapel, hall & photographer, picked our wedding party and have someone to marry us. We made our save the dates tonight (well they’re like 80% done).
I’m actually getting my dress made for me so I’m meeting with the dress maker Feb.5th. I’m going to try on dresses next Saturday though just for the experience and to see what styles I like (a-line, ballgown etc).

I think we’re going to book our DJ next week too.

Isn’t planning a wedding fun? I LOVE it Smile

I’m liking wedding planning much better now that all the big ticket items have been paid for.  The little details are way more fun to plan!
