@tjhasba34: Date triplets! 🙂
Everything sneaks up so fast! I’m happy with where we’re at. Could more be accomplished? Yes, but I wanted to get my main things booked early, which were reception venue and photographer. Things are starting to fall into place now.
@KSBlueyz: Out of curiousity, did you buy anything like body lotions, bath gels, consumable things (like things for an emergency kit)? I wanted to start buying them now, but I didn’t know if they’d still be good a year later. Just curious!

@JuneBride2012: yeah I have a really slow job at the moment, so I am taking advantage of the time. I will be starting a new one in about a month and fully expect to be run off my feet then, so I want to get most of my stuff done ASAP.
Got my dress and veil Saturday just gone, and finished my card box and table numbers too whee! It is all coming together!

I’m feeling a bit of stasis at the moment – we put in our major deposits for the reception venue, the videographer, hire company (chair covers, chair sashes and lighting). Our venue has an exclusive catering agreement with a catering company but our meeting, and therefore deposit, with them isn’t until October. I’m wanting to get down to at least 200 pounds before bridal gown shopping (18 pounds to go, I’ve already lost 35) and one of my bridesmaids is currently pregnant so we can’t shop for bridesmaid dresses til January, when she has had her wee one!
So what can I do? In July I’m doing:
I am meeting with our photographer (a friendor) next week just to iron out a contract that we are both happy with. I’m going to purchase more supplies for our centrepieces as they are fairly time-consuming to assemble but not too expensive. I’m going to get quotes for hair and make-up and try and find a DJ – I’m surprised at how hard that has been to date! I’m going to work on a wedding band design and get a quote on that. I’m very tempted to buy FIs wedding band off Amazon considering how good the exchange rate is! I’m sure I’ll end up doing more but that’s all I can think of off the top of my head
It’s just so exciting that it is less than a year away!!!
