What have you planned so far?

I know that we have a little over a year before our wedding dates, but what have you planned so far? What was the first thing that you bought?


For me...I started right away figuring out my centerpieces. Since they are going to be a diy project of mine, I wanted to start researching them right away. I have not bought the supplies yet but I will definitely be starting on them soon! The first actual thing that I bought were my wedding earings. I got a great deal on them and had to have them! I haven't posted them on my site yet (I still have an old picture up) but I will take a pic this weekend and post them.

Besides booking our venue, we started making appts for a photographer, videographer, DJ, and florist.  We pretty much know who we're going to book because both my sister and friend (PW'er dorkmeetsnerd) got married this month, and we really liked their vendors.  Oh, and I also got my wedding shoes.  =D

Perez_2010 thats so nice to have close feedback and actually see vendors work upclose! I am thinking about using the reception hall that my friend used because they had such a great experience and it was beautiful!

Here are my checks: Booked venue, church, Wedding Coordinator, photographer and videographer.


Sent out "Would You Be" cards to potential members of the bridal party.  We have heard back from the Best man, MOH, most of the BMs, both of the junior bridemaids, 1 flower girl.  As for the groomsmen, we have only heard back from 2 out of 8.  


I am in the process of doing the write-ups for our wedding website.  As soon as all the pictures come in from the bridal party, I will work with a friend of mine who is a web designer to launch our wedding website. 


In final negotiations with the jazz quintet band we will use for the ceremony, cocktail & receptions.


In final negotiations also with a lighting design specialist.


I have already settled on my decor and bought most of the items for the centerpieces.  My guest bedroom is full of boxes, so overwhelming.  I already bought the ties and cufflinks for the groomsmen (Check out my bio for the details).


My mother will be visiting in 2 weeks and we are going to go dress shopping.  


I am enjoying planning this wedding/renewal of vows . . .

Booked ceremony and reception venue and put down payment on dress already. I have my BMs picked and they know who they are. FI has to finalize his GMs. I have researched some photographers, but haven't committed to meeting with anyone yet. I am DIYing centerpieces too and want to try some mock ups soon. There are too many choices out there that I keep changing my mind. Other than browsing the clearance sales at Christmas, I will probably not really start checking off my to do list until January.

I got the dress and it was 20% off because it was black Friday, which I didn't even realize because I was just going out to try on things and I had no real intentions of buying anything.


My ivory mermaid dress with lace up corsette and chapel train:


I got the dress photo 1153555-1

Thanks, Meli!


I love your idea for a backyard wedding- I believe you said it's Spring that time of year for you and I think a garden backyard wedding would be beautiful! I checked out your bridemaid, flowergirl, and flower inspiration and they will fit perfectly with that venue.

I see that everyone has accomplished allot more then what I have l really need to get started lol!!! All I have is my church and reception locked...


OK I booked my reception which its in a beautiful club house we fell in love with it since its really really big!!! its fits more then 250 people in it, and it has a hug bar and so many windows...the only thing is they give me the room with table and chairs only! I have to gather up all my different vendors and that's what worries me allot! I live in Virginia and my wedding is in Pembroke Pines, Florida...


I have no idea what to do next =( I got the two main things done... I am not even sure about my colors...I am thinking: brown and orange or gold-orange and ivory? But I'm not sure since I haven't seen these colors combined???
