Already buying :)

I'm such a shopper. My mother and possibly his mother are helping us pay for the wedding, but I've already started spending some of my own money on it.


I want great gift/survival baskets for my MOH, 2 BM's, and FMIL and of course my mother. I defineately want my own money spent on this. So everytime I go to walgreen's, target, or walmart I pick up travel size things. I already got firstaid kits, complete with bandaids for them, lint rollers, q-tips, bobby pins, etc. I'm not getting anything that can expire yet, but spending the little here and there can make their baskets overflowing and amazing without my feeling like I'm spending so much on them. It will make it so much easier as the time gets closer and the budget gets smaller.


 


On a completely unrelated note, I also already bought some candle holders and napkin rings with the group getting them from overseas. Oh my!

All we have done so far is pick out my ring.  But it was such a big moment.  It was like, wow, this is towards our future together.  It was really a special moment.

I bought all the supplies for my DIY invites, STDs, and escort cards.


Also bought the stuff to make my favors.


I've having one hell of a time finding a reception venue that will let me bring my own caterer. Ugh.

I haven't bought anything yet.  I have determined venue for both ceremony/reception.  And I've determined colors.


What's frustrating is that a lot of people ask me when the wedding is.  I tell them 2012 and they look at me like I'm crazy.  My response is, well, it takes time to plan these things.  I guess they have no clue how expensive it is and time intensive it is to do.

I have my venue, photographer, DJ, and BM dresses all picked out. Currently working on finding a caterer and I was to pull my hair out everytime I think about it. By far the most stressful part of the planning process right now! Wish me luck....lol

I have my venue, photographer, djs, catering, my dress, the invites, and half of the bridesmaid guides out. (I'm not picking out one bm dress, so I'm sending guides with guidelines for choosing their dresses.)

I haven't bought anything yet, but I did book an appointment to try on dresses on the 28th. I'm calling tomorrow to see if we can rent the church, and also the potential reception venue. I've also chosen the colours (fern/moss green and black), the date (well we did that together), the theme (Rustic Chic), and my boss's wife (who is also a good friend) offered to give me the table clothes and table runners from her wedding, which was 2 years ago, and are in my colours.

I'm the same way, I've been slowly buying things as I go...it makes it seem like I'm not spending a lot because it's a little at a time. But I still have about 10 months to go, so I should probably slow down. lol. I know it's not too early to plan, but we have a small apartment!
