Oooh, I know how you feel about the middle stage. My friend recently asked if she could help with anything and I had to say no!

1. Dress will be in by mid-July at the latest.

2 and 3. Not planning to have either.

4. Cake – almost, need to hear back from the bakery. Flowers, we are making ourselves πŸ™‚

5. We are going suit shopping for the groom next weekend. No bridal party, cuts down on a lot of the stress and drama!

6. Wedding bands arrived a while ago, are being held hostage (er… “in a safe place”) by my fiance. Otherwise I’d be wearing it all over the place and admiring its shininess.

7. We are sending invitations by early May because it’s long distance for most of our family and a holiday weekend as well. We’ve made about half of them so far.

8. I’m really looking forward to this one! I was looking at dresses online and came up with this idea that I want to wear only dresses during our honeymoon… sounds romantic, right? And a perfect excuse to buy 5 new dresses πŸ˜€

135 days left for us. I’m freaking out… it’s really happening, and soon! Anybody else?

Oh, man, your checklist is all sorts of stuff I am stinking at.  Helpful reminder, though!

1. Has your dress come in yet? due in in june
2. Do you have your shower date(s) yet? not having a shower
3. Do you know when you are doing your bachelorette party? late july or august, probably in san diego (yay laziness and beach)
4. Do you have cake and flowers figured out? not having flowers unless I wimp out and buy some at trader joe’s last minute – we may go to earthbound farms (near my venue) the day before and make herb bouquets.  we’re going to have pie instead of a cake.  will probably go pie-tasting this summer.
5. Have your guys figured out what they are wearing yet? I asked my fiance last night, and he said he was going to tell the guys to wear suits.  apparently he doesn’t care what color and since I haven’t been able to tell my bridesmaids more than “short green dress” I can’t be bothered to argue this point
6. Did you buy your wedding bands yet? nope
7. When are you planning on sending out your invitations?  probably late june / early july.  we have a lot of people coming cross-country
8. And most importantly, have you found your fun dresses for showers/bachelorette party/rehearsal/etc??  nope, but I am lazy and might just wear pants.

I hear ya, I feel like the big things are done, and now what do I do?? Unfortunately what I am doing at the current moment is second guessing our ceremony venue (EEK)

1. Has your dress come in yet? I bought it off the rack so it has been hiding out in my FMIL’s closet for a couple of months. I visit her every couple of weeks..

2. Do you have your shower date(s) yet? No, haven’t heard anything from my Maid/Matron of Honor (Sister) about this, but I am not a shower lover and she knows that.

3. Do you know when you are doing your bachelorette party? No, but guessing in August sometime.

4. Do you have cake and flowers figured out? Yes! Aunt is doing the cake and she has the design sketched and flavors are chosen. Flower vendor has my deposit, and all flowers are picked out.

5. Have your guys figured out what they are wearing yet? No, and they are totally not into it (I’m gonna have to drag them to the formalwear shop). But I know they are all wearing black suits (or simple tuxes) with white shirts/ivory tie and pocket square for groom, black tie/pocket squares for the GM’s. And I know where I am ordering the ties/pocket squares.

6. Did you buy your wedding bands yet? No, and I am thinking we should because I would like to get them engraved.

7. When are you planning on sending out your invitations? 2nd or 3rd week of July

8. And most importantly, have you found your fun dresses for showers/bachelorette party/rehearsal/etc?? Haven’t even looked, but looking forward to that shopping trip.

Fun thread!

1. Has your dress come in yet? Nope!  It’ll be here mid-August! I’m so excited!!
2. Do you have your shower date(s) yet? Nope!
3. Do you know when you are doing your bachelorette party? No clue.
4. Do you have cake and flowers figured out?  We picked our cake flavor but still don’t know what we want it to look like.  Flowers.. we found a florist and I’ve sent her pictures of what I like but we’re still working out details.  
5. Have your guys figured out what they are wearing yet? Nope!  All I know is that Fiance is picking Menswearhouse
6. Did you buy your wedding bands yet? Not yet .. but we know which ones we want!  Hopefully will get them in May.
7. When are you planning on sending out your invitations? June.  RSVP date probably end of July so we’ve got a good headcount by then to work on other things. 
8. And most importantly, have you found your fun dresses for showers/bachelorette party/rehearsal/etc??  I bought a super cute dress the other week and I’m thinking of that for the shower. For the rehearsal dinner.. since I’m marrying a Scot I’ll probably get a cute cream/white/ivory short dress and wear a tartan sash with brooch.
