How's planning going for you?

What's still left on your to-do list?   What have you enjoyed the most (and least!) about planning so far?

Too much is left!)  We have just ordered our invites and I have spent today making up the address labels (cute wrap labels the match our colours), but I feel like there's tons left to do!


I really have enjoyed most of it!  Although, it's hard when you struggle with trying to keep the budget down while achieving the look you envision!

I'm with you gonzobride...so little time and so much more to do!  YIKES!!  I enjoy being creative with a limited budget and putting my heart and lots of hardwork into making my DIY projects look awesome!

I just stuffed my invites today :)  I feel like this process is too easy and I'm missing something really important. Course I think I may be over budget once all the big stuff is paid for.

So much still left to do!


Still need :


send out invites, photographer, videographer, hair & makeup, get the girls to buy their dresses and a bunch of other stuff that I don't even want to think about.


Best part was cake tasting!

Now it's all the LITTLE/BIG details...i found finding vendors easy, but now it is how to address invitations, seating charts, rsvps....what time is the rehearsal and dinner who can come...hotel rooms...everything it booked it is just paying the balances...and for me since i am so far away the stress is a little high!

I totally agree BrideInNovember! ;-) LOL! And the funny thing is EVERYONE I tell that I'm getting married in November, they always say "Oh what a pretty month to get married"...EXACTLY! Luckily no one is on to our little secret yet! ;-) <enter evil grin here> tee hee! :)
