@MrsFutureG:  I need help making up my mind! I feel like I am not set in stone on a lot of things and that is what drives me the most crazy. I think I finally settled on wedding colors though: navy, coral, blush and white/silver. And I am not doing the very popular vintage/rustic look but it’s also not modern. Maybe classic/romantic? See what I mean? lol

AHHH I’m so excited!!! I still have to order linens (we’re buying instead of renting) but we need to wait to see how much we’ll need! That’s the last “big” thing left… I think.

  • -Suit for FI and BM (he is procrastinating)
  • -Wedding bands
  • -Finish writing ceremony

Little things (but there are a lot):

  • -Tablecloth for dinner (we are doing one, long table, so this has been a challenge)
  • -Wedding jewelry
  • -Getting ready attire
  • -Bowtie for our pup/ringbearer
  • -Flower girl basket
  • -Gifts for parents
  • -Determine ceremony music
  • -Order marriage license
  • -Need a few more vintage plates
  • -Paper items (menus, placecards, personalized crossword)
  • -Finalize game table selections
  • -Buy favors (chocolate cigars)
  • -Get pie plates
  • -Figure out wine pairings
  • -Make playlist for dinner (frank sinatra, etc.)

I’ve been engaged since September 2010, though we didn’t start planning until July 2012, so part of me can’t believe there is only 4 months left but the other part of me is SO ready for it to be here!

@MrsFutureG:  I actually do have the centerpieces and everything pretty much set up. This makes me feel better. I am getting married at a county club/golf course and I will post some pictures. I think I am going to end up hiring a design company to help tie everything together. Here is what I have:

  • Venue
  • Menu
  • Photographer
  • Videographer
  • DJ
  • Florist (centerpieces through her)
  • Going to sign the contract for a draped gazebo instead of ceiling draping Thursday
  • Chiavari chairs
  • Honeymoon
  • My dress/veil
  • BM dresses
  • Invitations/RSVPs

Things I still need to do:

  • Decide on a sort of “theme” to get things cohesive looking
  • Little odds and ends like the card holder, place cards, garter, ring bearer pillow, etc…
  • Make final decisions on tuxes (may do that today)
  • Decide whether or not to use DJ for ceremony or find a musician
  • Accessories for myself/BMs including a bolero
  • Ummm get in better shape LOL

Maybe I do have more together than I thought I did! This makes me feel way better!

As far as a DJ for the ceremony, would that be okay? I deifnitely want strings to be played during the ceremony and cocktail hour so I wanted to make a Vitamin String Quartet playlist for him to go through, but do you think that is cheesy to have a DJ play strings? Or should I just spring for the musicians? There is a local college of music that I think I could get strings for a fairly decent price (though more than the DJ) but I am just so worried about the flakiness of being a college student. I guess I could always just have the DJ play if they don’t show…

Am I forgetting anything? Do you like the sounds of my colors?

I know how you feel! We got engaged 18 months ago. I’m so excited it’s getting so close 🙂 I love seeing it all start to come together.

@Nurse_Bee:  I’m planning on using a DJ for the ceremony and having him play VSQ.  I don’t think it’s cheesy.  Most of the weddings I’ve been to use DJ’s for the ceremony.

@Nurse_Bee:  I’ve been getting this from people, too. And we’re having a fairly short engagement (about 8.5 months), so we’re just about halfway through. Umm, no, we’re not done.

I feel like we have so much left to do! But we sent out our save the dates (my fiance made a great video that everyone seems to love) and booked our honeymoon two days ago. That was a really productive day! Now to just do everything else, lol.
