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.
i am working on booking a salon/hair stylist for the wedding day. lots of work. going to my venue tomorrow to work out some arrangements and to finalize our menu and cake & pick out the cake we want! YES. I am going to also start handwriting the addresses on my invitation envelopes since i have to mail out my invites Sept 1st! :)
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!
margo, cake tasting was the best! :) i also have to get my girls to buy their dresses! you are so right ... so much stuff, i do not even want to think about!
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'm at the stage when I want to GET IT OVER WITH... We have to pick readings/songs/music... those are the hard jobs...
Booked the florist today, and our invites arrived, so my goal is to get them out by the end of the week!
I agree, readings/songs/music are hard! I haven't finished yet...
Okay new to this group but so happy to have found it! For a while I thought there were only like 2 or 3 of us November brides out there!! :)
I'm sending out invitations on Monday! Favors are done and I'll be working on table names over Labor Day Weekend! Other than that, most everything is DONE! Family shower is in 2 weeks and my bachelorette party is in 3 weeks! I CAN'T WAIT!! :)
it reaaly doesnt seem like there are very many of us..... thats b/c november isthe secret awesome month, lol
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! :)
I will hopefully be sending out our invites by Monday, getting our marriage licence this week, florist is booked...now if my dress would just arrive!!
You are all on the ball! I'm not sending out the invites until mid September because well, I'm not done yet =) Who's getting married outside?? We are or hopefully will be pending the weather...
we hope to do TONS of photos outside... i hope the weather cooperates... still have to find alternate places to do photos if it rains or snows.
i hope that all my invites are addressed and stuffed this weekend that way i can send them out on Monday. wish me luck!!! :)
Are invites are being sent to us on 9/2 with the goal day of having them out by the 11th.
Planning is going great!! All the big vendors are booked and now just working on the small details. My big project right now are the invites!! My plan is to have them in the mail by the 12th of September.
Yeah, so i am not sending my invites out today ... hopefully by Wednesday. this is what i get for being a huge slacker! :/
