Hey Ladies!
I'm about eight months out. It was smooth sailing out of the gate. We got engaged in February, and we booked most of our vendors early on.
We are making payments on the venue and honeymoon, and we have almost all of the 15k budget in our savings account.

I've run the gamut on every emotion possible! Ha ha . Super excited and now the stress has slowly started to creep into eveyday life.

I lost my Mama two years ago, I'm worried that my wedding won't be as nice, as she would have done. But, I'm forging ahead anyway.

I'm doing my own silk flowers and I can't wait to get started.
I have started dreaming about the wedding, but so far no nightmares.

I need a little happy distraction, so please let me know where you are in the process and how you are handling things.

Feel free to share anything picture wise, I'd love to see them❤

For the brides that have gone before me, thanks for the inspiration. For the newly engaged , and brides after me...hang in there! We can do this!😘

    2 weeks to go!!! We have nothing but little things now. I need to paint a frame for the selfie station area and put my vows in my book this weekend. I need to get my dress pressed but we finally have all the attire now. Our sons will both be with us all week which is just the best feeling right now. The last of our online orders arrived and I now have to go through Mt Wedding Stuff in our spare room to organize it all. Hair appointments made, nails to be scheduled this week. The stress has been high but I'm getting a chance to recharge before the big day and I can't wait!!!!

    We're two weeks out and all vendors (restaurant, photographer) are booked and paid for.

    Silk flowers are created and sitting on my table.

    All attire except for mine is finalized.

    Groom's ring is picked up, mine is ready to be picked up.

    Premarital counseling is completed.

    Currently finalizing day of timeline, writing vows, finalizing guest list. I'll get a hair trim this weekend and I'm debating if I'm going to get my nails did or not. Rehearsal is on 10/9 and I'm trying to find a way to keep my parents separated from each other.

    Your dress will work out , I'm sure if it! Yes! You need to get your nails done. All brides deserve pampering!
    I'd just let your parents be, you have enough on your plate. They both love you. I'm guessing they can put aside their differences for your big day!
    Congratulations!
    Send me pics of your dress without the shrug. It will be fine! I promise!

    We're still a little ways away, sadly. We got the venue, DJ, photo/video, hotel block and honeymoon booked. Looking into talking to a florist next. My dress is in production right now (getting it custom made) and we got our rings picked out!

    Thank you! It's definitely a hassle and yet I still feel like I'm so far behind.

    I'm also about 8 months out! We have our venue and officiant booked. We have an appointment with a photographer. I have my dress, shoes, headwear, and he has his suit. We have our rings. We've started collecting the stuff for our centerpieces, to honor my mom who is too sick to attend, and all the kids participating are lined up (no grown up bridal party for me! Don't need the stress and drama!) I am most stressed out about writing our own vows. FH wants to write them, so I've agreed, but I'm sure it's going to be a hot mess because I'm not all mushy and romantic like he is. No nightmares yet from me, but he has been having them! The other night he dreamed he was an international hitman. So I told him when he comes into the wedding, we'll play the Mission Impossible theme Smiley smile

    Omg! What a dream! Haha ! I love the tie in to the wedding! Like an inside joke, for the two of you, when the music plays! Genius!

    My wedding party will be drama free, just my besties and my bonus daughter.

    We are writing our vows too...we started on them right away for some reason.
    I'm fairly uncomfortable, speaking in front of others, so we will see. I am an ugly crier! I may have to go first, because hes not mushy , but I'm sure it will be sweet.

    Please, please, please video his entrance if you use mission impossible! I just love that! I really do!
    It's awesome to have a sense of humor, it totally destressed me for some reason!
    Thank you! ❤

    I have about 51% purchased for the wedding. Next month I will be able to rent my ceremony venue. I've been working on my diy projects. I'm loving the progress but had some anxiety. I admit though, occasionally I will have nightmares, but not about my fiance. He is absolutely wonderful and we have been together for 6 years. This will be my second marriage. My first was awful. He was very abusive and a serial cheater. In my nightmares, I've had nightmares about my exhusband.

    Don't worry! It's just your subconscious working through your past.
    So glad you found happiness!
    You deserve it! I'm proud of you!!!
    It isn't easy to love again, after all you went through!
    Congratulations! Keep me posted!

    I am pretty far out but we have our venue booked. I've started looking at inspiration (created a vision board) and have ideas. I'm pretty organized so far...next month I am going to start looking at vendors (florist and photographer) to get an idea on pricing and packages. I have ideas for save the dates and invitations as well. My venue is all inclusive with food and cake so that will be taken care of about 7 months before the wedding date. I'm in a good place, looking for my dress is going to be the biggest challenge...I'm very picky.


    My condolences regarding your mama! She will be right there with you every step of the way, definitely not the same as her physically being there but she will be there. My FH's mom passed away 3 years ago and I know it will be a tough day for him as well.
