    I've planned and booked everything except bride's maids dresses, linens and catering. The caterers won't even talk to me this far out but I'm still pretty sure I know who I want to use. I also still have to ask two ladies to be my bridesmaids and I know the dresses I want to use but I don't want them to order them right now.

    May 10, 2019 here!! We have only booked the venue and the officiant so far! I’m going dress shopping this month and I’ve basically picked out my other vendors (photographer, flowers, etc.) I just need to hire them!

    Date twins! Smiley laugh So far I have found my dress, booked my venue, booked my photographer. We have our officiant and our DJ. So a lot of major things are taken care of. My mom and fiance told me to take a little time and relax now since I got those things done but I can't lol. I've been looking at cake and centerpiece ideas. I will be looking into a florist soon. I'm not getting engagement photos done until end of September because I want them to be in the fall, but I've been looking at different ideas for our pictures to. Because I got a lot of the big stuff done, I'm having fun looking at small things like decor, centerpieces, makeup and hair ideas, wedding invite and save the date ideas and stuff like that. I have a bit of time before I need to really DO anything else.

    Ladies I changed my wedding date, so that's why I'm a little ahead of the game, okay.

    Dress and shoes - none

    Venue - none

    Centerpieces - none

    Caterer - none

    DJ - none

    Linen - none

    bouquet, corsages, bouts - none

    Invitations - got all the supplies for diy simple invites, not mailing until 60 days before wedding

    wedding website - none

    Chargers, napkins, wine bar accessories - none

    Misc wedding decor - none

    backdrop and props for selfie area - none

    DOC - none

    Cake - none

    Photographer - deposit down - none

    Some rentals still need to be secured, video person needs to be secured, hotel rooms need to be paid for out-of-town family members, cases of wine need to be secured, can't do that too early. Candy for favors, can't do till 1 month before. Just random misc stuff that has to be tighten up.

    Did you mean to say done instead of none? That is so much done already!! When was your original date? I’ve been trying to get all of the big things booked up but everyone keeps telling me that I have time not to stress it but I just want to get all of the big booking out of the way so I can focus on everything else and just enjoy being engaged!

    Yeah, I was typing this on my iphone and it kept replacing the word 'done' with 'none'. Smiley xd

    Yes, get the big stuff done now. Venue, Catering, DJ, Cake....don't wait because this year will fly by so fast and before you know it, we are into Christmas with 5 more months to go. Go hard and relax with 90% of it is done later, because you got to give yourself time to correct situations if they don't go as planned. You won't have extra time if issues come up and you have to go in another direction and work a Plan B.

    My original date was this October, but family issues came up and I was cool with waiting. We're an older couple, so it's no big deal for us, either one of us are going any where :-) I actually wouldn't care if we push it out to September of 2019. I like taking my time and planning everything and not feeling rushed. My venue is super flexible and as long as you give them 30 days notice you can easily change your date with no fees, nothing. Just book another day on the calendar.

    May 11th and we have nothing planned! A lot of the stuff we are doing ourselves and since we are in the process of purchasing our first home, we've changed a lot of things. We are no longer using a venue and instead will have a backyard wedding. We are finding it is so much cheaper this way but more stressful as well. So far, we just have our colors picked out and our wedding party. We still need to put together our guest list and send out the save the dates.
