May 2018 Brides

Where are my May 2018 brides? I have 150 days and counting! The stress is becoming real especially around the holidays! I just sent out my STD today! Do y'all have all your vendors booked? Still debating on a videographer.

    Yes we've had everything booked for a while! Just hit us it's exactly 5 month away!

    All major vendors are booked - we're on the fence about a videographer also, but really it just comes down to budget when we get closer. I might pass on it.

    Next up is registry, booking our honeymoon, and finalizing the menu with our venue!

    We have mostly everything booked so far for ours, but I'm still trying to find a dress. I think I'll be more relaxed once I do. Still debating if we want a videographer for just the ceremony part or the whole thing though.

    I have the same date and so far I don't feel stressed out . Even though I still don't have everything planned out. Maybe it just hasn't hit me yet I am sure it will feel more real after the new year.

    We hardly have anything done. Our wedding is at the end of the month, and i feel like we're way behind. We have venue, my dress, and photographer. We will have caterer, dj, and photo booth soon. Can't seem to find a good HMUA. Still trying to decide if we want a vjdeographer or not. And still need to book our honeymoon.

    Wow exactly 5 months! I just realized that too! Got the cake and DJ checked off today and already have venue. Going dress shopping tomorrow...I know I'm behind on that. Still feel like I need so much but I'm sure it will come together. Time is really flying.

    HOLY MOTHER of ... I read this and was like "May 2018, glad I'm not that close... wait...." and then I had a minor panic attack in which I remembered our wedding is indeed in May. 5 months and 5 days from now.

    Most Major vendors booked, sending STDs this weekend, and debating and figuring out details (like all of them). I feel like we still have so much to-do. We still need to coordinate with the florist, figure out transportation, book another set of rooms, look for bakers, figure out our officiant.... bleh... so much.

    All major vendors booked. Just had our final tasting, planned the menu and created the timeline for the day. Going shopping for MOH dress on Monday (she wanted to wait because of post-pregnancy weight). STDs went out over the weekend. Invitation proofs are being finalized. Found awesome people for hair and makeup.

    And FH is now looking at tuxedos... he has surprised me by getting into that AND asking me to come along when he goes to try things on. He is catching on that we have a color theme and he doesn't want to screw it up. Lol

    Everything major is booked, we scheduled our engagement photos (we took some when we got engaged), i have my trial next month, and our cake tasting. FH has the attire figured out for the boys, the girls have their dresses.

    We are ordering invitations next month, and we are starting to look into the odds and ends things, like card boxes, signs, frames.

    Everything booked.

    Only stress is losing weight now.

    Everything else is easy breezy and costly. Sending save the date at the end of month of the 1st of the year.

    I feel ya on the stress starting to kick in! Beginning to reconnect with all my vendors, esp DOC at the venue. Also, trying to schedule hair/makeup trial. I too only just booked a videographer. Luckily there were still several to choose from which surprised me... We have all of our vendors booked, STDs are all mailed, hotel rooms blocked, my dress just arrived (in going to the store to try it on and pick it up on Dec 30th when my mom is in town-- super nervous its not going to fit as I have not lost weight as I had intended...), going to print formal invitations soon (doing final revisions), meeting with our officiant (my grandfather) the first weekend in January for premarital counseling and to plan the ceremony...
