@smiles1979 – We’re in the same boat – date twins!  It sounds like you’ve got everything started and pretty much know what you need to do.  The one thing I’ve tried to do is get the time sensitive things out of the way, ie: wedding dress, vendors, etc.  Basically anything that’s going to take a while to get in or needs to be booked so your date will be available.  Now I get to focus on all the little details… whoohoo.  They say it’s the little details that will drive you crazy, but I say bring it on!  πŸ™‚  Six more months and we’ll never have to do it again!  Good luck to you!

I cannot stress how amazing weddingwire.com is. You plug in your wedding date and it gives you exactly what tasks need to be done during each specific month. It’s awesome.

oh god this is so funny cause at first i was like, did i post this!? lol im getting married on April 30, too!!

I ordered my Save-The-Date Cards this morning! You have to get that done, because with holidays coming up you dont want them to get “lost” in the onslaught of holiday mail!

Im going to tell you straight out, you have WAY more to do than what you listed (if you are going the traditional route, i guess)…Ill tell you what helped me, theres this APP, if you have an iPhone, Bride Guide – DOWNLOAD IT! It outliens everything you need to do! You would never imagine how many tiny things there are, and if you know about it ahead of time, you can probably tackle alot of those little things early on so they dont stress you out later, at least thats my plan haha.

What I can suggest is – get everything you need to “book” – booked ASAP. I have a friend that waited too long and couldnt get ANYTHING she wanted.

GOOD LUCK!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

If you are at all doing the invites yourself, then I suggest you start now! Those always take more time/effort/sweat than you think.

Oh MY!! you just reminded me I have no photographer!!! Thanks, By The Way you look like you have lots more done than I do.  Mine is a vow renewal (15th anniversary) but we are doing everything(just like a first time wedding).  This is sooo much work!
