My wedding is in September 2010. I’ve done the following:

-Booked venue and caterer, which also does cake

-Booked the hair and makeup artist

-Groomsmen and bridesmaids outfits are taken care of

-Got the dress

-Booked the photographer

-Booked the DJ

-Created a wedding website

-Started a registry

Currently in the throes of designing the save the date emails and am still in the middle of making the physical invites. Also started a workout program to try and lose some weight!

Oh yes. November 20th, here! So far we have:

Booked the photographer
Found/put the deposit down on the dress
Found/bought the suit 
Booked the venue (which also includes catering, centerpieces, and flowers)
Booked the officiant for our civil ceremony
Started to find flowers
Finished the DIY Invitations (only need to be printed now)
Planned the rehearsal dinner
Started on the wedding favors…I’m knitting 100 scarves. So far I’m at 7!
Established that we’ll be using escort cards
Planned the escort cards

We still have lots left to do…we need to find gifts for our bridesmaids, they need to find clothing, we need to figure out who is going to be marrying us for our Catholic ceremony and establish the guest list.

What are those things that you’re finding you just can’t do now? For me, it’s the invitations. But we can’t finalize the list for another six months or so!

Pendragon.nyc & stephinPA- that’s so great you have so much planned already!! My partner and I are having a mini-destination wedding and are planning on heading up to the small mountain town weekend after next to put our deposit down. Until then, I guess you can say that nothing is truly “final.”

We’ve also picked out a photographer that we love and that is super affordable, so the second our venue is booked we’ll be calling him to reserve him also!

Keep it up, November 2010 Bees!

Hello there!

I’m new to all of this and I’m a November bride too!  Whoop de woop!

All we’ve done is organise the venue and date!

Yikes!  Maybe we’re just slackers in the UK!!

Great job ladies! Keep it going, don’t forget to hire a planner even if it is a DOC. You need to enjoy your day and not stress.

Happy Planning ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh my word you ladies have so much done already!  I’m definitely feeling like a slacker!  I have found where I want my ceremony and reception but haven’t booked it yet… (waiting for confirmation from my childhood pastor saying he can officiate on that date)

I’ve found my dream dress, but probably won’t purchase it for a couple more months

I’m pretty sure I’ve found my photographers (one here in Houston for engagement and bridal, and one in CA for the wedding)

I’ve also chosen my bridal party.
