March 2014 Weddings

Progress!!

Just had the most productive weekend with my fiance!!!

We had the venue, DJ, and dress picked out last month

But this past weekend we nailed down the caterer, photographer, officiant, and bakery!!

Now just the final decision on the florist! and of course all the million little details!

:-) Had to share!

Re: Progress!!

  • I haven't really started thinking about the million little details until I went to a wedding this past weekend. Now I'm starting to sort of freak out about them. Heh.
  • Awesome!  You have gotten a lot done! 
  • You're doing awesome! I feel like such a slacker haha. The days are ticking by fast.

  • OMG...I haven't started anything quite yet, we looked at venues but haven't book anything yet. I guess i should start, I thought i'd start at the 10 month mark...should i start now? when is a good time for dress shopping?
    March 8, 2014 is our date :)

  • Don't worry, northern bride. I live in Northern NJ, where most venues tend to book up 18 months in advance but have had several friends plan beautiful weddings in less than 8 months. I found that once I had my venue contract signed, everything else just seemed to fall into place.

  • Thanks... I think I'll book the venue that we liked this week. Just to be sure, then... like you said, hoping the rest will fall into place.
    Good luck everyone...less then a year now!!!! wooohooo!!!
  • Silver: Wedding is in Charleston, SC
    Ella and Pedro: Thats awesome!!! your on a roll!!
    Northern Bride: depends completely on where you are getting married. As my hometown is in Charleston, SC - a wedding destination - Everything including vendors book a year out or more so I had to be proactive on some of the big things.  I'm hoping things are going to calm down now for a bit

    Good luck everyone!!!!

    Woohoo! 

    We just booked our photographer so now we've got - venue, photographer, dj, dress, save the dates, invites (not in possession but designed and all that) and wine. We're in negotiations with caterers before we sign a contract.

    It's nice to see such lovely support amongst women. I am very grateful, and know I shall be even moreso as time gets closer and crunch time approaches!
  • Siobhan, Charleston is one of the most beautiful places (especially for a wedding)!  I was originally considering getting married near Pawleys Island or Mt. Pleasant (my parents live near PI), but the thought of planning a wedding in SC while living in NJ made me panic, lol.

  • Silver- Thanks so much!!! I know Pawley's well :-) and I think planning a wedding long distance would be crazy stressful! I'm planning mine only 2 hours away and thats hard enough for me!
  • I'm on top of things now...booked hall, deposit on dj,have my wedding decorator, deposit for honeymoon and found my dress, just have to order my size. I still need an officient and my groom still needs a suit. So pleased with myself....now thats prgress. Hope everyone else is doing alright.
