What have you done so far?

I know our wedding isn't until 2 years from now but I love planning early! I know our ceremony site, reception site, theme, colors, centerpieces, favors, photographer, and even the time line!


What have you girls done so far? What do you need/have left to do?


I still need to find a band, put in some deposits, find the dress once again, and all my diy projects.

Booked the ceremony/reception site. Waiting till next spring to book photographer and possible limo service. We have our current colors picked out, and I definetly have an invitation template in mind. Centerpieces I'm split on, one minute I like the thought of using feathers and the venue complimentary pieces and next I want to use paper lanterns. I'm holding off dressing shopping till 9/2010.

I've bought all of my vases for my tablescapes.  We know our reception site already, however, the place won't take our booking until the wedding is at least a year away so we won't be securing the site until sometime at end of May 2010.  I've made my hairpiece (working on the 2nd one) and bought my earrings.  The little things can get done for now, the big things have to wait.

The only thing besides planning that I have done is stress! Even though I know that the wedding is two years away that time really does fly. The hardest part thus far has been finding a reception venue although, my FI and I ran across one the other day while we were house hunting. It looked absolutely beautiful from the outside and the pictures on the website were phenomenal.

Well our wedding was supposed to take place in 2010 orginally, so guests have received invitations initially and now a newsletter about postponing the wedding. 


Since then I've located a better venue and a wedding planner.

We've booked our venue and date. 


Besides that, I've started dress shopping but haven't found something that I *must* have. We've also started getting quotes from photographers, and meeting with a few that we like. 


After we get the photographer sorted, I will start looking at celebrants and hair/makeup.

Ha, I got engaged and got right on the ball!  Here is what I have so far:  my dress, my wedding shoes, my venue, my coordinator, my photographer, my caterer, and my hairstylist!  I'm trying to wrap up my MUA but she won't book this far in advance.

All we've done so far is to book our ceremony/reception venue!  We're working on DJ, photographer, florist and officiate this month and then I plan on taking a "break" over the summer to let my ideas develop into a comprehensive theme.  I'm WAY too all over the place right now to start planning out the details!!

Yayyy we've just booked our photographer! I met with about 10 photographers and in the end it came down to two.. and I let my FI have the final say because I couldn't decide between them. One stressful thing out of the way ;)

Because of the possibility of my date being popular (11/11/11), I have booked the ceremony venue, my reception venue, my photographer, and my favors/entertainment (doing flipbooks - easier to watch the video than to explain iloveflipbooks.com).  I have also sent the wedding party their invitations to be our wedding party.  Got my dress and shoes (that was on a whim - didn't mean for that to happen), and have samples of all the reception decor (Im buying instead of renting).  I have also purchased the big parts of the DIY centerpieces.

I have actually accomplished a lot more than I thought I would so quickly. We booked the venue, the dj nad lighting, the photography and video, the officiant. I have my dress and theme of the wedding and we are pretty sure which bridesmaids dresses we are getting. I am glad to have most of the larger vendors squared away so that I can then concentrate on all the little detials

We've confirmed the resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica for our wedding!!! I have purchased all the materials for my "will you be my BM/MOH?" packages, (just asked matron of honor since she came home to visit--she lives in NJ now) and am assembling those, I ordered my 12 free STD cards and we like them so we are going to order more. I have also gone dress shopping but just found out about a bridal boutique that I saw some dresses that I love. I like that it is not a chain store and that I will get a dress ordered just for me unlike at David's Bridal. I am working on my DIY list so I can see what I need to buy to make everything and am looking into venues for our AHR.
