i got engaged 2 days before thanksgiving and all we’ve done so far is set the date with the reception place (Aug 15th!). i’ll be trying on dresses for the first time this weekend and i’m so nervous that nothing will fit me and i’ll be disappointed. other than that, we’re going to try to book the ceremony place asap and i’ve already got a friend who is a graphic designer who said she would help me design my invites (and logo for std’s, etc.). i figure that there is 9 months left, so i can take things slow and not be a bridezilla.

@iggie-they have sizes for everyone (most places you go at least go to Alfred Angelo! I loved them! They have all sizes!) & I’m sure you’ll rock out at least one dress during the whole process!

I can definitely understand the stress!
We have been engaged since Feb 14 and just booked our venue. We thought we had a photographer that we loved but due to uncontrollable circumstances it might not be that way anymore. We’re in upstate getting married in NYC so the time to meet with vendors is very limited. Just trying to cram as much into every weekend home as possible!
I am SO relieved to finally have a venue that I’m not stressing anymore! Just set goals and try to reach them. =)

Thanks girls! In the last 2 days I finished negotiations with my photog…yay : ) (and coached 3 soccer games and taught a college class besides my normal high school class). Still working on a date for mimosas and dresses!
And Sirouhi there will be absolutely nobody wearing yellow! I agree with your concern. Everyone will be in blue and I’ll leave the yellow to the flowers.

No worries!! I am 8/7/10 and we only have the DJ and venue confirmed!! I’m hoping to have caterer and photographer picked out by the end of December, but this stuff takes time, and when you’re busy and employed it’s hard to handle it all! You’re fine 🙂

Hey Rx…thanks for asking!
Dress is done. Got it over Christmas break and LOVE IT!
I don’t have anything else technically done, but the ideas are close to fruition.
Bridesmaid or Best Man Dress – have one I like…girls will need to order to try on…should happen in next couple of weeks.
Fiance is doing the menswear (with my ok needed) and the DJ. We looked at some sample menswear, but not set yet. DJ is next on his list.
We walked through the venue again last weekend and got more of an idea on spacing, what decor is needed.
Next will be to meet with the florist recommended by venue and to figure out the menu.
Oh, and really need to figure out invitations.
Soccer coaching just ended so I feel so free! I have lots of thinking done, but not much to actually show for it. Only one wedding nightmare recently : )
How’s everyone else?
