You’ve got a good amount done.  Start thinking about decor and pinning stuff that appeals to you.  Make sure you’ve got everyone’s addresses and set up RSVP spreadsheets.  Browse wedding sites for detail ideas and just start collecting things little by little. 

You’re really far ahead of the game!  ๐Ÿ™‚

@SouthernGirl:  I totally understand where you’re coming from (July 2014 bride-to-be, engaged since Christmas Eve 2012)


I would look into a photographer next.  Florists, bakeries, limo companies, etc. can book multiple weddings a day, but the photographer can only work one wedding, and if he/she is really good, you’re going to want to book them before someone else does!

I’m up to florist, dj/entertainment and dress rehersal/dinners location. IM currently unemployed so I have so much time it’s crazy haha. So far I have: venues, photographer, cake artist,  some accessories, designed save the dates, decor thought off (currently collecting supplies) , received all my invitation paper yesterday! , guest list, engagement party list, doing engagement photos next month and sending out save the dates in June (since its a “destination” wedding- Im the only one who lives here) ! Groomsmens, bridesmaids, working on origami favor seed packets, dress rehersal invitations (although not officially made), dress and shoes… so I’m very far along haha.

I would definitely look at photographers next.  They go fast!  Probably flowers after that.  We’re currently looking at invitations, Save-The-Date Cards, and DJs. After that we’re basically finished with the major stuff!

I agree – photographer is what will keep the moments for years to come.  Next I would start to piece together ideas for the reception and song choices.

I am making notes about vow ideas since I would like to say some of our own on top of what the officiant will have us say in our vows.

You are not behind…I would suggest keeping a notebook of some sort and jot things down as they come to mind.  The list is never ending and it is better to brainstorm =)

Hi date twin!


I’m super impressed with your list. So far I’ve got the venue (ceremony and reception), cake, bridal party, and florist.

I think a really good next step is the photographer since they book up quickly. Next on my list after that is DJ and officiant, and then I think I can relax for a while. Good luck!
