Where are the July 2021 brides? How are y’all feeling and what else do y’all have to do for the wedding? My wedding is July 23rd and I honestly can’t believe that it’s next month!! I’m so excited and nervous, I just want the day to be here already and be married to the love of my life. Right now, we have a few little things to do like, wedding dress alterations, pay vendors, finish up our premarital counseling, buy wedding signs, buy the alcohol, get our marriage license and book our wedding night hotel. When’s your big day and what’s still on your to do list?

    I’m the day before you!


    I have to order my signs, book our hotel, make a couple more payments, my bachelorette is in 3 weeks, waiting for her arrival of my reception dress.
    Are you nervous ?

    That’s cool! I’m definitely starting to feel a little nervous just because I’m realizing that I’m going to be the center of attention and everyone will probably be looking at us the whole night lol but I’ll get over it probably a few minutes in. I’m also nervous because, I just hope everything goes to plan and turn out to be a wonderful night like everything I’ve dreamed of. I’m also thinking about getting a reception dress, where did you go for yours? Is yours like basically another wedding dress or is it something more casual?

    Congrats on your upcoming wedding day! We’re a month out from our elopement on Monday, July 12 (our 5 yr anniversary).


    If you haven’t started the alterations just yet, definitely do that sooner than later. My dress took 5-6 weeks to alter (hem, cups, sides, and bustle).
    We are sending out our application for our marriage license this week. Our photographer emailed us last night asking to meet one final time before the wedding, so I need to schedule that. The videographer will receive his last payment soon. My biggest worries are getting our officiant situated for our day and writing our vows.
    Those are our main things… but there are little things like: receiving our florals, receiving my SO’s suit, updating the coordinator, picking up the cake and rentals.
    It’s most a waiting game now.

    I started my alterations yesterday but, they ended up having to order me a new size from a different store so I’ll have another alterations appointment this week. I’m happy I didn’t wait too late for alterations for this reason exactly. Why are you worried about your officiant?

    Glad to hear you’re getting back to alterations soon and that you were able to find your dress on such a short notice!
    As for our officiant, we decided on a friend marrying us so we have to help him get situated with a script, giving him the elopement details, making sure he gets his certification done…. those types of things. It’s just a little nerve racking because it what makes us officially married besides having witnesses.

    It’s another wedding dress. It’s from a designer who only does custom work.


    I am too, I’m just mostly worried about being a good hostess.
    DB has a ton of gowns that you can use as a reception gown, or you can purchase a white evening gown.

    My wedding is July 17th. I still have to pay off my dj, do centerpieces, pay for cakes, and pay for wedding insurance. I'm stressed to the max since I'm also in college

    Ya girl is STRESSED. We get married July 2 - 16 days!! I just sent in our final headcount and meal choices to the venue... every single day I get bombarded with emails from vendors asking last minute questions! I already picked up my dress from the seamstress but I am frantically finishing up our homemade favors and wedding signs. I keep remembering to do things I've forgotten! Yikes!!! Literally still ordering things last minute, thank goodness for Amazon Prime!

    July 17th and beyond stressed! We still need our signage (menu, bar menu, welcome sign, table#'s, seating chart, etc.), get alcohol, pay the rest of our vendors, and any other detailed things we wanted. I'm a 2020 covid bride so we pushed out a year and I keep saying "we have time" but we really don't! It's been a wild year. Good luck and enjoy the ride, the closer it gets everything will just fall into place.

    P.S. book your hotel! We have given our guests 8 different hotels to book that is near our venue and all of them are fully booked, I feel bad for our guests but we gave them so much notice/time.

    Me! One more month and just finalizing what to do about vows and we need sparklers and baskets for flower girls. Other than that I think we are pretty much set!

    Guest list has been a challenge as we have had people wait to decide due to covid. We had several international guests and the variant and what the US is preventing has been a nightmare.
