September 2012 Weddings

What do you have done so far?!

Hi Ladies!

 I am kind of new to this board, I am a Sept bride too. So exciting! What do you all have done so far? So far, we have our venue which includes cater & linens. We also have put the deposit down on our photographer, DRESS, florist and photobooth. We are putting our deposit down for our DJ tomorrow, and I need to meet with my DOC and put that deposit down. I also have a cake tasting in about two weeks. So overwhelming! Anybody doing any DIY projects,if so, what are they?

    Welcome to the board! I have my wedding planner,venue;photography ;videographer;Officiant;DJ; caterer in progress.oot totes and bridemaids gifts;jewelry and mua and hair stylist.
  • Venue, Caterer, Photographer, Officiant, STD's are mailed, website, room blocks, band, my partner's dress, made day of hair and makeup appointments, made pre-wedding beauty appointments, booked pre-wedding and wedding night hotel rooms for us, and we have purchased some decorations.

    Need to do:
    Decide on cake - we may go through our caterer for this
    Decide on wine - paired with dinner
    Invitations - we found an etsy vendor we like but have not pursued it
    Meet with a florist - we are having a limited flowers and decorating mostly with candles, apples, and wheat 
    Engagement photos - we will do these in June
    My attire - we meet with a seamstress who will be making it on Saturday
    Bagpiper - have a few calls out 
    Flesh out our decorations - make purchases as necessary
    Find a place to buy bulk decorative wheat
    Make favors - jars of apple butter
    Settle on rentals - this will happen about 6 weeks before the wedding

  • So far we've booked:

    Ceremony Site
    Reception Site
    Caterer (rehearsal & reception)
    Cake
    Hair
    Makeup
    Wedding Planner
    Officiant
    Decor Rentals*
    Bought my dress / veil

    I've picked out my BM dresses, and one purchased already. I've been chatting with the photographer (picking a photog when you are a photog....talk about hard!) and the band, just need to give deposits.

    I still need to figure out ceremony music/musician.  I also need to have engagment photos taken and send out our STD's. I'm designing my invites and printing through my printer, but I'm so indecisive I can't make up my mind on which ones I like! 

    My good friend owns an event rental company, and she's handling all my decor for me. We're getting together this week to put together some sample table settings. She'll be doing some mockups with a florist she uses, and I'll see how it goes. If I don't like it, I still need to book a florist.
  • Done: 

    Colors picked
    WP selected 
    Picked out BM dresses (4/6 will have them ordered by end of the week)
    Wedding Dress bought
    Ceremony/Reception Venue
    Officiant

    Photog
    E-pics (through coworker)
    STDs picked out
    STDs sent
    Blocked hotels
