Our Wedding Planning – Updates!

wedding planning

Oh my god guys, the wedding is almost two months away. I may be starting to freak out a little, but I’m psyched at the same time.  Here’s what we have done:

What we have completed/locked in:

– Photographer (easiest job ever, thanks to the amazing Julie Jones of Picture Something Blue!)
– DJ (we’ve chosen to go with Greg at Celebrity Sound and Lighting) and first dance song (which is a secret!)
– Flowers
– Guest List
– Dress/accesories and Suit
– Shoes (for me, at least)
– Venue (duh.)
– Bridesmaids’ dresses
– Food and drinks
– Lawn games
– Invitations (from the amazing Sarah of Gigi and Poocha!)
– Registry (we chose to do ours through Amazon – the link is in the sidebar if you want to check it out! – and it’s been the best option for us)
– Officiant

What needs to be finalized:

– Tablescapes (my awesome stepmother is dyeing doilies, prepping centerpieces and so much more!)
– Seating charts
– Day-of scheduling
– Groomsmen suits
– Total decor (indoor and outdoor)
– Vows (we have the templates, but haven’t done them yet)
– Rides to/from the venue
– Flights to/from Ann Arbor

What am I missing here? I feel like there’s a big chunk of something that I’m overlooking, but that’s kind of how I felt about the whole wedding planning experience. I hope your experience was a bit different, because it’s a bit chaotic doing this from a thousand miles away!

Tell me: how is your wedding planning experience been so far?

We have 4 months and some change to go, and you have much more done than I do. lol. I get burnt out very easily. We still have to do DJ, cake, tables, linens, and tent. Yikes.

You have twice as much time, at least! Where are you getting married?

I have two months left also and i feel like i’m going to leave something out. But have found some of the wedding checklists on pinterest to not be that big of help. BTW i love reading your blog!

our wedding is 3 months out and the planning can become very overwhelming. But, once one task is completed, I feel very accomplished :)
Currently working on invitations. Why must there be so many?! lol… and our wedding is out of state for all our guests (and us), so planing has been hectic. I don’t want to overload the invites with too much info or cards. How did your invites turn out? We have already sent save the dates with the wedding website, but I have found so many people have not visited the site.
