What Have You Done So Far?

Hey Ladies,


What all have you accomplised? Bookings? Purchases?


 


I booked my Officiant, and DJ. I'm almost 90% done with my Venue. My FI is coming home in 3 weeks, so we aren't going to sign the contract until he sees it. I sent my girls "will you be my BM" Cards.

Hello! :)


I've got my dress, won the BM dresses (whoot! whoot!), booked our photographer and videographer!! That's all I have for now... it's been hard to really plan since we are mainly focusing on getting our professional certifications first... so wedding plans are pushed back!!!


what does your venue look like armysweet?

We've nearly picked the venue, we're interviewing photographers very soon as well. Next we'll probably start drafting a preliminary guest list or looking for my dress.

I am ordering my dress at the end of June. But I've went dress shopping three times (always go back to the same dress though) lol. We pretty much have the venue narrowed down as well as the photographer. My grandmother is a florist, my dad owns a DJ compnay so that part of it was pretty simple.  I have talked to a few wedding coordinators and we'll see if I can save enough for one. I'd like to since I don't live where we are getting married (it is my hometown though)

Got the dress (started looking at prices and ordered a good deal on a whim and it was everything I thought it could be and more), the shoes, my venue, my ceremony venue, my photographer, wedding party sent their invitations to be in our wedding, and all the samples for everything I will be using (mock up of the tables, etc).  


UPDATE:  Got 4 small table centerpieces and some misc pieces from Hobby Lobby.

Know which venue I'm using which include Dj, band, officiant, video and photographer, and  (DW), have a mock up of save the dates, invites, programs, thank you cards, menus, etc. know the dress that I want, know my how is in the bridal party, know about how many guest. Just waiting to officially become engaged to sign contract on everything. I guess I'm a little ahead of the ball game for someone that's not even engaged, But I know it is coming, boyfriend is not good at keeping secrets. Do you ladies think I' crazy?

I have the venue, the baker, the dj, officiant, caterer done and dress picked out.


I plan to just order flowers in bulk and have a bouquet making "party with the BMs and MOH at the hotel room the night before with a good chick flick and that way they can make their own bouquet.


I'm happy with the dress, but I'm nervous because I won't be back in VA until about a month before my wedding and i'm trying to lose weight. cross fingers that alterations are good the first time! haha


congrats dejesus, you just reduced your stress by half i think nearing the wedding date!

I feel like i haven't done anything. Mostly researching, I am always changing my mind so I don't want to buy stuff too early. I am also going through the complicated procedure of getting married in a catholic church (so complicated)... Already booked my reception venue, I think I'm already set on the dress, just have to buy it....God so much to do!
