Hi all. Where are my April 2020 brides? We are just about 6 months away. Our date is April 24 2020. How is your planning process going? What have you accomplished and what do you need?

    Hey girl! I’m a May 2020 bride but just a little over a week after you Smiley smile
    We’ve nailed down all our major vendors aside from a bakery for our cake. Still have to get everyone’s wedding attire (besides my dress) and the rest is really just decor and counting down the days! What about you??

    How exciting!! We also have all of our vendors booked. We just need a few decor as well, need my maid of honor to get her dress (all my bridesmaids have their dress already), I need my small accessories like shoes, hair items if needed, garter & jewelry, also need my wedding band and his. Do u guys have your wedding bands yet? And what about your small items such as the garter etc? I want to make sure I'm not behind lol

    Oh I definitely don't have all those accessories just yet lol. I'll probably shop for those in January or so after the holidays. Same for the wedding bands, we've picked them out but haven't bought them yet! Right now my Amazon wish list is full of wedding stuff that I may or may not buy later on Smiley xd

    April 11 ❤ I'm so excited that we've reached 6 months.

    All vendors booked except hair & donuts. I have my dress and my bridal party. Save the Dates sent last month. I ordered and received my invites, which are going out Janurary.
    Working on getting parts of my bridesmaids gifts right now! FH still needs his wedding ring.
    GM & BM haven't bought outfits yet but we pretty much know what everyone will be wearing.

    I need to work on more DIY projects (flowers and other crafts) and I need to figure out the hair and make up situation. And I really need to think about music for the ceremony. As well as readings for the ceremony

    Hey Teresa,

    Month twin! We're getting married on Saturday, April 4 and most of our major things are out of the way. We've got our:

    1. Photographer

    2. DJ

    3. Officiant

    4. Catering (getting trays from local Asian restaurant)

    5. Cake


    Things we still need to get/order:

    1. Attire (my dress, jewelry, shoes, bridesmaids dress/groomsmen, flower girls)

    2. Invitations

    3. Wedding decorator (still in the works for securing one)

    4. Chafing dishes (we gotta rent them)

    5. Book honeymoon (We know where we're going, just gotta book)

    6. Get bouquets

    7. Bartender (in the process of narrowing down our fave and most reliable)

    8. Our rings!! Sigh, we really need to get onto that!


    I'm sure I'm missing little things, but they'll come back to me as we go along!!

    We’re April 18!
    We have all of our major vendors booked and mostly paid for. We go November 8th to have our tasting and will be ordering invitations then. Since ours is destination we will be sending out invites in January.
    I just have to grab some little things extra for the reception and gifts for everyone. Otherwise we’re good! Bridesmaid dresses have been ordered and picked, same with suits. The guys get fitted in December. I have my first dress fitting in January! So excited! Only major thing is just to keep saving money to fully pay off everything!

    Date twin!! Super stocked 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽. I still need to find a hair vendor. I feel they’re overpriced but I know I will have to commit at some point. Still need shoes, wedding bands, jewelry etc. the big vendors have been secured. Just slowly paying stuff off.
