June 2018 Brides!

Denyse, on December 7, 2017 at 2:35 PM Posted in Planning

Hi ladies, any June 2018 Brides out there? I am curious as to where you ladies are in your planning? Which vendors have you booked this far? & what is next on your TO DO LIST?

    Hey! So I'm exactly 20 days before your date! I know there are a lot of us here, which will lead to a month of fun BAM's!

    I currently have a lot of my big stuff done. STDs are out, venue, officiant, DJ, and caterer are booked. BMs dresses are picked out, they are ordering in January. Got my dress, gained a little weight, now currently trying to fit back in the dress so I can do alterations! That's really my biggest issue as I have some health issues I've been dealing with for a couple of years.. but I digress. Next up: florist and cake. Then I need to actually nail down the menu, order invites, and get groomsmen attire picked out. I know it's early, but I'm from Arkansas and multiple showers are pretty much the norm. I had 1 last week and another on the 30th of this month, so sending out thank you notes and being prepared for those, but that's the fun part!

    ETA: I also need to get started on decorations after the holidays. Not sure how I'm going to do all of that, this engagement is flying by!

    I am a July bride Friday the 13th! I'm trying to put a lot of the planning/buying decorations, etc on hold until after the holidays, but it's hard because I'm too excited! We already have our ceremony and reception venue all set, and I already have my dress, and we just sent out all the save the dates !

    I'm mostly done. The stuff that hasn't been purchased yet is picked and waiting for me to pull the trigger when it's time. Still working on music, need to do dress alterations in March, and BP/Parent gifts. Other than that, our venue is all inclusive, so it's been pretty no muss, no fuss.

    I work on wedding planning stuff in chunks since my wedding is a few hours away and I'm trying to finish my degree up.

    Here's what I've completed so far.

    Booked a mostly inclusive venue

    Made appointments with potential officiants over Christmas

    Ordered my dress

    Sent save the dates

    Worked on invitation wording

    Made an appointment with a cake baker over Christmas

    Decided on wedding colours

    Decided on groomsmen attire, just a nice dark grey suit

    Started wedding website

    Decided criteria for bridesmaid dresses for my sisters (below the knee light purple/grey non-strapless dress)

    Found where we'll order our wedding rings and decided on a metal (Titanium)

    What is next on my to-do list

    Find potential photographers to interview

    Go through the wedding planning binder from our venue with FH when he visits (LDR ftw!)

    Try on wedding rings of different widths and order our bands. We'll tackle this in two weeks

    Bridesmaids pick their dresses (They are going to look at stores closer to Easter)

    Big planning meeting with our venue in three weeks

    Decide which of two veils goes better with my dress when it arrives in a month

    Pick an officiant

    Decide who'll do readings at our ceremony

    BP/parent gifts as inspiration strikes

    Decide if I'll book a makeup artist for day of the wedding

    Decide how I'll wear my hair. I want to wear a braided bun, my mom wants pin curls so we'll see.

    Book honeymoon

    Hotel room block

    It's a relief to see that I'm pretty on par with everyone!

    We have all the big vendors booked with the exception of an officiant. I'm having a very hard time finding anyone willing to do a nonreligious ceremony in our rural area.

    I have my dress, veil, shoes, and all that good stuff.

    We have our guest list finalized, but still need to find and order invitations at some point.

    We have rings.

    I have a basic idea of decor, buuut that will be a task for after the holidays.

    Mostly at this point, I'm down to the details to flesh things out.

    We have our venue (which includes catering, room blocking), my dress, my bms are picking out their dresses, minister and photographer. Fmil is working on flower and fh is working on desserts (which I think is the most exciting part for him)

    Next step for me is invitations since we're getting them through etsy and I want to make sure there's time. Then DJ. Fmil already has tons of decoration ideas and she's crafty so I think I'm going to let her go freely lol

    We got engaged a week and a half ago and we are getting married June 30th!

    I am a musician, my mom is a catering sales manager, and we are getting married in a family friend's backyard, so we feel confident pulling off a quick engagement.

    All we have done so far:

    Guest list



    Color scheme


    But we feel confident!!
