I'm getting married June 14th. I did have an altered dress but it didn't look great, so I took it to someone else. Now, I wait. The only decor I'm charged with is table numbers. We won't be doing a guest book. My RSVP deadline is May 17th. After that date, I will work on my seating chart and escort cards. I haven't decided what I will be doing for those yet lol. I'm hoping to get GM gifts this weekend with FH!
We’re June 22. Floral is being handled by a co worker and coming along. My dress should be shipping to me hopefully today from Cocomelody. Praying my custom sizing means minimal alterations lol! FMIL will write escort cards as soon as rsvps are done which are fine May 18. Wedding planner making signage. Favors will be hanging above escort cards on manzanita trees. we still have so much left to do though😖 music list. First dance. So many details. Mans so many payments! Our big thing is catering is not finalized 😖 due to budget and guest list we had to start over with 70 days left. Have a great quote from someone and probably going to just go for it. I still need to make my veil, bridesmaid gifts...ugh. im just ready to marry my best friend! I don’t care about all the other crap honestly! But it has to happen. I’m so over being excited and ready for the stress to be over!
June 2 here We are just using candles and table numbers that the venue provided as our centerpieces, so I haven't had to deal with that. I was planning to get my dressed altered in March or April but when I tried it on, it actually fit perfectly so I'm just leaving it hahaha. We did our guest book a couple months ago! Got a really simple blank notebook with a cork cover that my FH picked out at Michaels (our wedding venue is very wine-oriented so it fits that vibe really well!), and used chalk markers to paint our names and the wedding date on it.
We also very last minute-ly hired a videographer a couple days ago after agreeing a year ago that we didn't need one... I was so upset about the prospect of not having a video so we caved, and luckily the one our photographer works with was still available, so I'm super relieved about that. We also booked our rehearsal dinner last week... we are having it at a restaurant, and we've known the owner for about a decade, so he and the chef (chef is also the owner's brother in law) made it super easy and stress-free for us. They said they'd make a mini-menu just for our event and include everything they can charge $25 for (so basically excluding filet mignon and the other super expensive options) and we'll just pay a flat $25 per person. And it's also BYOB so that was quick and painless!
At this point we are mostly focused on things like RSVPs, seating chart, escort cards, getting our marriage license, etc. Our RSVP deadline is tomorrow and we are waiting on 18 more responses (out of 146, so not terrible!) but one of FH's friends who was planning to come also just texted him today that he can't make it anymore, sooo I'm still worried there's some "maybe"s in there who just put "yes" -.- I've already done a hypothetical seating chart but it's hard to finalize when we don't have the full guest list finalized yet. Hopefully we will be able to make some strides on that this weekend or at least next. Also planning to get our marriage license soon! I got the OK from my boss to come in a couple hours late one day in the next couple weeks so we can go get it in the morning! I'm probably going to call later today. Super unreal!
Hi Date Twin!!! Right now, my FH and I are trying to find songs for our grand entrance, print menu cards, get his wedding band, receive all of our RSVPs, create a seating chart, order items for welcome bags, make escort cards, order the wine, and order our fresh flowers in bulk.
Oh I forgot, pay the remaining balance on some vendors.
June 23rd for me! I have finished everything except the escort cards and the seating chart which I can't do until I get all my RSVPs back. My centerpieces are being made and delivered by my florist so nothing for me to do there. I have my final dress fitting in two weeks. Our guestbook and décor are all set too - we are using a lot of candles, drapery, uplighting, lanterns, and signage as décor so keeping it pretty simple. We have been engaged since December 2017 so I got a lot of planning done early on which I am very thankful for now that we are so close because I am not stressed at all since everything is already taken care of. I have my bridal shower this weekend, need to get our marriage license, and we have two more guys that still need to be fitted for tux rentals and then that's pretty much it.
We’re getting married June 9th but the reception is on June 22nd when we return from Jamaica, and that’s what all the planning is going into. We are taking my dress & fh’s suit to start alterations this week. I still need to make some signs for the reception and still need to put together favors. We are also still working on our playlist for the reception and trying to find a last minute DJ if possible. Oh! And I still need to dye all my cheesecloth table runners. I have most major stuff done but I still have a lot of stuff to complete. I need to get on it!
I’m a June 2020 bride so I haven’t finished or even started anything but I’m excited to say I think I have finally narrowed down what I WANT for centerpieces, found mine dress and know what we are doing for favors and signs! Lol- I’m a little Type A!

That's not too bad! I have to paint our name on a mailbox we are using, do final discussion on flowers with the girl helping us with flowers, and STILL need to get my fh an jacket, he's not wearing a suit.

I'm doing fresh bulk flowers to and I need to order those soon! It's so hard to decide where from because you have to make sure they aren't opened too much when they come and keep them somewhere all in water.

A few decor things but have the centerpieces figured out. Also music playlist and getting my FH his clothes asap. He keeps putting it off but I'll feel better if we can go shop and get it done. We need to get our marriage license too! We originally weren't going to get one because you don't have to, but we realized it would make things smoother with name change and the cruise we are going on in December.
Second dress fitting in a couple weeks! Just hired a day-of director and florist which were the two biggest items left. Now to finalize linens and chandelier rental (outdoor wedding in the woods just sounded like an amazing place for a random chandelier 😉)
we we are going to get out sparklers from South Carolina Border because it is so much cheaper than Amazon!
