mrspinesol:  cake and food? Are you playing your own music? Dj? 

Also will you be wanting your hair and make up professionally done or will you or a friend do it?

just a few things to think of

If you want any decorations (including altar, isle runner), I’d get on that soon. Lol

  • Wedding: September 2010

Don’t panic about anything. πŸ™‚ My husband and I got engaged in late April and were married in September — a fairly big, traditional wedding in the NYC area with all the usual bells and whistles. You’ll be fine! 

So you already have under control:

-photographer,

-ring,

-save the dates/notifying guests,

-wedding accommodations (I assume that’s what the vacation house is), dress.

You’re already working on:

-venue,

-officiant 

Other things to think about:

-do you want music at the wedding and/or reception? If so, you can start looking into DJs, bands, singers, whatever.

-wedding cake? 

-flowers?

-food & drink for the reception — what do you want, and who will do it?

-as PP said, makeup & hair for you (totally optional, of course — I prefer to do my own)?

-invitations? Do you want formal, printed invitations? Or are you going to go a more informal route? Don’t have to worry about sending these till 6 weeks before the wedding, anyway.

-marriage license — don’t need to get this till much closer to the date, either.

-depending on your venue, will you need to rent chairs, tables, etc.?

-other accessories for you: shoes, veil, jewelry?

-groom’s outfit?

That’s all I can think of. Don’t panic! πŸ™‚ Congrats.

mrspinesol:  so sounds like you just need some tables and chairs with some games set up. A little decor and your good to go.

  • Wedding: October 2014

Go ahead and look for dresses.  I ordered mine in May and got it JUST in time for my wedding at the beginning of October and it was a close call with alterations and everything.  I got engaged last April and married in October so it’s doable. Also book your photographer and/or videographer now don’t wait.

 

EDIT: nevermind you are already completely under control.  Congratulations!!

mrspinesol:  I’m thinking all this at the house. Are you having everyone inside or outside? If outside the house you want seats. for a house reception I’m thinking very low key and very minimal decor If any. Sounds like you are going very basic at the house so I’d be worried about chairs for your guest to sit when they come over.
