Venue, photographer, DJ, planner, cakes, florist, bought dress, flower girl dresses bought, first Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts purchased (robes), registries started, wedding websites, and Save-The-Date Cards are all done

Engagement party is this month, and we’ll drop the Save-The-Date Cards in the mail March 1st (but they are already stamped, addressed, and ready to go.

We still need to finish the registries, sign the contract and do the tasting with the caterer this month. I’m also going Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping the Sunday after our engagement party because that will be the last time all of the girls are together before the wedding day. Also, I’m probably going to go ahead and get the robes I bought for my BMs embroidered with their name – to get that out of the way.
