Things are coming along. All the big stuff is done, all the vendors are under contract, my dress is on order, website is up, and working on the BM dresses (2 of the 5 are done). I am working on favor ideas. A lot of the little things are done (program, day-of schedule, rehersal dinner menu, etc).

Pretty good! A bit overwhelmed, but most of the work is getting done. :)

Today I am a 190 days.  Although I feel pretty good about what is all accomplished, I am hating the fact that with the Holidays approaching, I'm going to lose about a month!!  With Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, etc.  What about you guys???

I am a little behind on the Save-the-Dates, they NEED to go out this week. But I have done alot of work elsewhere.


Ceremony Venue -- Booked May 2009


Reception Venue -- Booked May 2009


Photographer      -- Booked May 2009


Cake Baker         -- Booked May 2009


Videographer      -- Booked June 2009


DJ/Uplighting for Reception -- Booked June 2009


DOC                 -- Booked June 2009


Dress               -- Found and Purchased July 2009


Veil                 -- Ordered July 2009, Received on Sepetember 2009


Shoes              -- Ordered July 2009, Received in August 2009


Seamstress      -- First fitting schedules for 1st of October(done), next fitting this 


                         Tuesday


Save-the-Dates-- Slightly behind 6 month line, but all enevelopes are addressed.


Invitations     -- Ordered, paid for--they require pocketfolds I need to make


Officiant        -- Arranged, some problems at church lately


Reception music -- chosen and as good as paid for, my organist is my old choir


                           director she knows her stuff.


Flowers       -- DIY<--last minute crap


Favors        -- Candy Buffet, again last month crap


BM Dresses -- They have been given the go ahead to go and order their dresses, and 


                    if they need help to just call me.


Groomsmen -- Already registered with Friar Tux/Saavi Formal Wear


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


That's all I can think of. I know I still have to give a playlist to our DJ. Come up with a timeline which I have a preliminary of.  And give our videographer 3 music clips for our intro.  Not sure what I am forgetting, but it's probably something.


Honestly I am feeling jaded by the commericalism that surrounds weddings in general.  I think the commercialism I have seen cheapens the meaning of all weddings just like seeing Christmas decorations on sale in October before Halloween cheapens the meaning of both holidays.


That's just me. After awhile I have gotsick of world of weddings.  There's only so much wedding crap I can take from vendors before I say "enough already! Go back under the rock you crawled out from once you heard I was getting married!"


I came into the wedding industry as a bride that had researched it before hand since I had the benefit of being with my fiancee for a long time.  So I learned very quickly that most self-proclaimed wedding experts will treat you like a big white cash pinata.


After lurking lots of forums I am still under budget.  And way below budget for the average Los Angeles wedding.  That is something I am proud of.

Ahh I have my food tasting tomorrow, then we need to order the candy for our candy buffet, Saturday the groomsmen and FI are getting fitted, all of the bridesmaids and flowergirl dresses are ordered...everything is pretty much done! The only things we have left to do is everything that needs to wait like addressing the invitations (although we already have them in hand), designing the menu cards (can do that tomorrow after the food tasting), designing placecards (came as a freebie from our stationer so I need to send her the names 2 weeks before the wedding), seating arrangement, dress alterations, call restaurant for rehearsal dinner (do that tomorrow), engagement encounter/retreat (scheduled to do the weekend of January 8), oh yea and pay off all of our vendors (that's a big one!). But most importantly, find a house or else we are moving in with his parents until we find one :)
