I hear ya – I had my dress a week after we were engaged! LOL!

The reception venue was booked within a month or so, and florist is booked already. Going for bridesmaid dresses on August 4th…and I’ve already purchased a few things for the reception (random candle holders, a vintage suitcase for the cards to go in), and have picked out invitations and have a huge jump on the guest list…

Now – I’m hoping nothing crazy happens to screw all of this up. He keeps saying, ‘we have over a year,’ but doesn’t seem to ‘get’ that you HAVE to plan early!!

i have been engaged for exactly 1 month today and i have:

  • put a rez on my ceremony location (no deposit yet)
  • picked out my bridesmaid and bridesmaid dress.
  • had one bridesmaid try on the dress.
  • decided we’re having paper flowers
  • picked out our colors.
  • decided on the groomens (no bestman yet)
  • picked out reception site (friends back yard)
  • started looking at dresses (have not tried any on yet)
  • created and mailed Save The Dates
  • picked our date (august 25th 2013)
  • decided my step sisters are doing our photos (they agreed)
  • decided we’re using our ipod for the music (its an intimate/ family wedding with a max of 40 people)
  • purchased a wedding band set as my engagment ring and will be using the second ring as my wedding band

i think that may be it for now but i’m not sure

@mskoloa:  Haha!! I’m working on all of it… buying small things here and there…with over a year (barely) to go… I enjoy the details, not the big stuff. Really have to interview officiants, but it’s not happening the way I want it to…that’s the NOT fun stuff!

@sparrow02:  Wow – I’d say it’s a bit early to have mailed the save the dates already…but, to each his own ๐Ÿ˜‰ Even I will wait til 6 months before, but I’m definitely making sure some people are aware of the date so they don’t make other plans lol

I absolutely had my colors picked immediately, but will probably be adding to them for accents and decor – but it’s too soon to tell.

Wanted to do the ceremony in my mom’s yard, but can’t count on the weather in Chicagoland!! ๐Ÿ™
