Where are you at in planning?

Well, I'm almost at my 6 month mark! I can't believe how time has flown by. How about a little update on where everyone is at in their planning stages?

I'm just starting- is this the hardest part? I feel like once we come up a date and venue - send out invitations - it's gotta be for sure the date and place we wanna have the wedding at- we have so many choices and the budget is so hard to stay in. I can't wait to get to the point where we know for sure where the wedding is gonna be....

I am with you on that Amber. We're just starting too.  We are not sure what kind our top budget will be but we want to keep it as small as possible.  We have just under a year from the date we want, so the venue we choose has to come pretty quick and have our date available.  I guess having a significant set of numbers sort of narrows things a bit.  I feel like maybe we'll have to settle on venue because of it, but at the same time confident we'll get what we want... We are just looking to have so much fun with it.  That's what matters!

Ellewinfrey, you are doing GREAT considering you've still got 6 months to go!


Darcelleauguste, you must have nerves of steel! I'd be shaking in my boots if I were 3 months away and still didn't have a venue! Do you have some ideas lined up?


Amberglam and thewonderfuls, I felt totally stuck in planning until I had my venue. I was thinking of having a woodland/forest themed vow renewal before I got my venue. Now that I have it, I see that theme just won't work but I've got a million other ideas that will. Without the venue, there's so much you can't do, huh?


Our vow renewal is in June. So far, we've got the venue and photographer and that's it. I've been gathering decor and ceremony ideas and plan to start DIYs soon.

I feel like once the venue was set and started buying decorations so I couldn't change my mind again. Everything started falling into place.

ahvr2013.. i dont have nerves of steel.. its just that the reception place said  that they are not taking bookings for next year yet even if its in january. so i am just depending on the peace of God to make it true.. if it had not been for him i would have gone crazy by now. i Hope i get through this week !...  :)

Darcelleauguste, do you live in a small area? I do and some of the vendors and venues I have looked at so far have told me not to bother until a month or two beforehand. Either way, I bet it all goes just fine and you have a wonderful wedding!

9 months and 19 days to go!! So far, we have the ceremony/reception venue booked, DJ booked, cake booked (but not decided on), dress bought, tuxedo place booked, officiant booked, and wedding party picked out. Right now, we are in the process of booking the photographer, then need to do invitations, flowers, etc.

I am in the early stages of planning.  My FI and I have discussed several things but we have yet to actually plan anything yet.  My wedding is about 11 1/2 months away so I'm not panicking just yet which believe it or not is quite an accomplishment considering I am a complete overplanner.


We are hoping to select a venue within the next month or so.

Well- thewonderfuls I was in the same boat as you with the time frame, so we ended up having to push back the wedding so we can have it at the place we want and be able to afford it. We are not getting any financial help, so we had to push it back. We have a countdown to early April or May 2014! It seems long, but we feel that since we are doing a destination wedding -we can at least give our guest enough time to save up as well as us. What have you decided on with your groom? Are you all gonna wait or go with another venue?


AHVR2013- I am still at the point where we cannot even book the venue since the wedding date is so far away. I am anxious & want to get started on ideas for flavours and decorations. So what did you have to decide on in regards to your theme since you venue has been decided on


Great checklist ellewinfrey, I need to get a checklist so I can be better organized. Did you get your checklist from a wedding planner book/organizer.


Does anyone have a wedding planner?

Amberglam, would you believe I still haven't decided?! I'd like to work lanterns into the decor, but that's about as far as I've gotten.

I am now a 2014 bride.  I had to postpone the wedding due to circumstances way beyond my control! But I am still planning :)
