I feel like I have made good progress on the wedding planning to this point. We have our venue (which includes the food/drinks & cake, we will meet with the baker in the Spring) our photographer, who we still need to meet with to go over things, but they said it is early, it can wait until the new year, we have our DJ, who again said we can meet in the new year and we have our officiant. The last 2 vendors we need are the videographer and florist. The save the dates are created & arrived on Friday, I'll be sending them out in the new year. I've gone out dress shopping once, with another trip hopefully this week. I've figured out the centerpieces & have ordered invitation samples.
I'm just feeling stuck right now. I don't know if it is because the vendors don't want to meet to discuss details until the new year or if that my FMIL is not being so cooperative with giving me or my bridal party information needed. I have asked multiple times for a guest list, and have yet to receive anything. I've found out from my girls that they have also tried to get information regarding numbers for my shower and she hasn't been forthcoming. When I mentioned something to her, she made a comment that it was only October (which it was at the time) and there was still so much time. I made a good faith estimate when ordering the save the dates. I've been picking my FH's brain as to who he think his parents will invite. The last time I was in contact with her, I asked for a list with addresses by Christmas, as I would be getting the save the dates ready to send while I am off from work. (I'm a teacher) To that request I got no response. I guess her unwillingness to give information is leading to my frustration that I can't go on with what I want to do for the wedding. I know it may be early, but that is how I operate.
Any suggestions? Anyone else feeling stuck because we are still 10 months out from our wedding dates? Have I really made good progress? I've been using the checklist here on The Knot & have been able to get done most of what is suggested for Sept-Dec., even some things for Dec.-March.
Thanks in advance!
