@Mrs_Harmer_to_be:  We sent the save the dates a bit early and we are sending the invites a bit early to becuz Fiance family almost all live on the east coast and my family is scattered all over the US plus my little brother is stationed in Germany with the Army.  So to help people prep and save to come out for the wedding we are sending everything out a bit early to give them a head start on things.  I think your right on track ๐Ÿ™‚  Dont worry we have 7 months ๐Ÿ™‚  or at least that is what everyone tells me when I get in panick moods lol.

@FutureArmyWife12:  That’s awesome! I am ok with meal planning, but I am way too lazy to exercise. ๐Ÿ™ Between my broken knees, my asthma, and my general lack of fitness, working out hurts (and can make me pass out) so I just avoid it. ๐Ÿ™ I do, however, cook healthy and portion out meals for me and Fi. :-/ Having someone make sure that at least your calories in is working for you can make a huge difference!


Good luck!

@Mrs_Harmer_to_be:  Sounds like you have a lot done! I would recommend getting a block of rooms squared away at your preferred hotel as soon as possible, though. A few months ago, I casually mentioned getting a room block at the hotel where I’m having my reception to the woman I’ve been dealing with there, and she told me they were all booked up! This was 9 months out! Luckily they were able to make it work, but still, better safe than sorry. And it shouldnt cost anything to reserve the rooms so no harm in doing it now.
