How fun!! We've been engaged for awhile, so we've booked all our major vendors except for the cake baker!


Still to come: working on Save-the-Dates and the website, DIY invites, BM dresses, bridal accessories, finalizing the menu and schedule, and doing day-of DIY projects.


Hmm, bunee2 - maybe look for photogs next? I think that's what was next on my list after ceremony and reception venues.

No prob, bunee! I found the vendor reviews here on PW helpful, too.


LOL at ChrisNScott's comment! I didn't think to check 'Future Husband' off the list, but totally true, that's definitely one wedding item I have covered ;)
