I am going to try to find my dress and start on my DIY projects. I am also planning on sending out my save the dates. All our family is coming from out of town so I want to give them plenty of time to plan their trip.

My list for Feb & March

-finish wedding website & send link out (in lieu of STD)

-have Fiance ask groomsmen

-meet w/ restaurant venue to discuss general menu, timeline, etc for reception

-book hotel block

-start registery

-help Maid/Matron of Honor & BH plan shower

-choose cupcake flavors

-find officiant

-help BMs shop for dresses… and hopefully at least 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man will find a dress. I’ve asked them to pick their own & they seem to be a bit hesitant to go shopping.

  • Wedding: August 2013

My wedding is in August, but the last day so practically September 🙂

This month I am having the bridesmaids order their dresses since they’re made to order dresses, they take a bit longer to arrive.

I just fired my baker so we’re looking to hire another, who will also be doing the grooms cake.

We are choosing the tux styles.

We are interviewing day-of coordinators.

We’ll be ordering our invites to send them out in May.

I’ll also be doing some DIY decor for the sweetheart table.

 

Good luck bees!

I totally dropped the ball on starting the February to-do thread! I started grad school in mid-January and as you might imagine, I’m not currently doing *anything* wedding-related Embarassed

Im not doing much this month. I sent out my Save-The-Date Cards yesterday and gave my BMs a deadline to get measured and order their dresses. I am going away this evening so when I get back I will bring the florist a $700 deposit.

We got the florist and the bridesmaids dresses! All that’s left for Feb, or more likely March, is booking a limo, a cake tasting, buying wedding rings and having my groom find his suit.
