Our wedding is September 6. So far we have the place, the food, the dress, photographer, flowers, decorator, the day before coctail party 

I am now on to invitations. That means getting an officiant,  ceremony time, dinner time.

How about you?

We’re getting married on 9/9/9 and I think I’m making myself a basket case!

Every time I find myself not doing something wedding-related I freak out just a little bit. I feel like there’s so much left to get done. Yet everyone keeps telling me that I’m way ahead of the game and I need to slooooooow down!

So far we have the site booked which takes a huge chunk out of planning since they cover the cake, flowers, linens, officiant, DJ and catering. I’ve got the hair/makeup stylist booked. I’ve got my dress but it still needs some alterations. My BM’s just got their dresses last week. And I have almost all the tentative guest addresses so I’m (allegedly) sending out S-T-D cards next weekend.

But I still need shoes, undergarments, wedding rings, hair adornments (in lieu of veil), accessories, invitations, my something blue. Neither the groom nor his groomsmen have suits yet. We haven’t ordered favors or place cards…I swear the more I get done, the more there is left to do!

Ok, I’m getting married on 9/5/09.  We have the venue, ceremony place, flowers, officiant, photographer, my dress, the favors, and the dj is tentative at the moment.  I’m one of those that hates to leave things last minute.  I sent out sve the dates a month ago.  I bought my invitations at Target, so I’m gonna attempt those within the next month.

Now we’re at FIVE months out!!! How are things progressing for everyone??

kurlynut: I had no idea Target even offered invitations. Are they online or in store?

All I’ve done since last month is send out my save-the-date cards and set up our second reception (my mom calls it a "meet and greet") for the relatives that can’t make it to our wedding. We’re moving to a new apartment in a week so after that the planning is going into overdrive! 🙂

I have everything done (venue, florals, dress, photo, etc.) Now I am trying to make a dent in all my DIY projects. Which when I get to thinking about it can be overwhelming. And of course there are still payments to make on everything (YUCK!)

Yes, the payments are YUCKY indeed! I’m hoping to get as much of this paid off before the wedding as possible but we’ll see how that goes. 😉

I have most of the big ticket items decided.  I still need to find a dress for my daughter/flowergirl.  There was a problem with my custom wedding dress so it is going back to the designer.  We still have to meet with our invitation designer next month.  We took our e-pics and order them, but the prints aren’t back yet.

My invites are almost done. I have the venue, band, & officiant (although we haven’t met with him yet). I haven’t figured out food yet.  We’re just doing sandwiches so I’m thinking either Hyvee or Kohl’s Wholesale.  I have to order bridesmaid dresses soon. I’m ordering flowers either from Costco or Sams Club and we’re doing the bouquets/bouts.  I’m trying to decide if we need long-burning tea lights or if the 4 hour ones will do…. and I’m in search of some 46" shepherd hooks for as cheap as I can find them… I bought my red shoes – they’re on my blog.  Still lots to do!  Good luck with your planning, girls!
