Gee, and I thought I was bad! At least my wedding isn’t until next year! Still, if you’ve had that many bad experiences, I’m not surprised you’re not wanting to try anything else – how frustrating for you! I doubt I would have the motivation to organise cakes and venues for a third time.

Good luck with it all! Maybe just elope Wink

I can understand not wanting to book anything if you’ve been burned before, but you should push to at least book a reception venue. Everything else can be dealt with in a month I would imagine.

@lindseyl06:  I’m slacking, too. But I think if my venues kept falling through like that, I would be eloping! Sometimes I want to do that now :-

I’m slacking…absolutely nothing has been accomplished since we got engaged 2 months ago other than buying my dress. To be fair, it’s mostly because of circumstances (we are unexpectedly relocating for my job) and it just hasn’t been top of the priority list. Still though, I need to get on this!

We’re totally slacking. We got engaged back in March but I’ve been in the city we’re having the wedding for about two weeks and haven’t done anything we were supposed to do, like find a restaurant for the reception or a venue + caterer, or find out his ring size, or find a cake/cupcake baker. That’s actually kind of all we need to do because we’re being lazy, but it’s still looming over my head that we have to make some kind of decision eventually.

Same here. I did a few things RIGHT away… booking a venue, getting a photog (well, friend), booking a DJ (family friend but professional), and ordering some sample wines, even buying our invitations!  I started off so great, but now I’m just… biding my time…

Some things I feel like I CAN’T do too early… what If i change my mind?!  I wouldn’t want to commit to any decor until I’ve been thinking about it solidly for awhile.

That must be really frustrating about the Venues and caterers falling through! I hope you find someone soon that makes the whole process easy and enjoyable for you! Good luck!

My cake baker has been decided but not with a final design as yet :/

Ahhh the joys of being a DIY bride, and a fulltime mum

The big stuff is done, but I realized like half an hour ago that I haven’t even started thinking about decorations for the church.

I also haven’t made my veil, found shoes for FH and Dirty Delete, decided what to do with my hair, talked to my photog (friend of my sisters. She booked him for me) and a whole list of other stuff and I’m really not doing anything about it. At the moment I’m watching Dr. 90210 Embarassed

@lindseyl06:  Me too date twin!! I have the majority of all my vendors booked but have not started any of my diy and I have a long list of them. The good thing is I just booked a full service wedding planner and I’m going to turn everything over to her and let her figure it out. Well….. that is the plan but I have no idea how I’m going to handle doing that SMH! It will all work out one way or another. Smile

That sucks about the venue and the lost money.

I too, am slacking just a bit.  I am totally in need of: caterer, DJ, transportation and ceremony and officiant.  

As of now, not sure where the ceremony will be.  Fi is supposed to talk to his friend’s brother who is a DJ but has yet to do do that.  And as for transportation, I have a company but need to call them and change my initial arrangement with them.  Should be able to find out if I can book a caterer this week, hopefully.  2 fell through as well and I just gave up on searching for a like a month… I just got tired of calling and calling and calling.  I needed a break.

It will come together though.  I am making a few calls this Wednesday on my day off and hope to square away thos major vendors.

As for the small stuff, they are coming along.
