Re: Accomplishments to date

  • - Booked planner
    - Chosen date
    - Chosen ceremony site (no deposit, just $50 permit fee as the date gets closer)
    - Kinda sorta chosen colors (I see things that look together but keep coming back to my original vision)
    - Savings up, running and getting a little padded :)
    - Purchased a few DIY supplies on mega-sale

    I'll get a lot more accomplished during the summer since the everything will be at the beach.  I want to see things in full swing before I finalize too much more.

    An online saving and checking account for the wedding fund, with checks on the way.
    Our ceremony site and reception site are booked and deposits paid.
    Photographer booked, deposit waiting on her getting back from vacation.
    I found my dress.
    His tux is decided on.
    Colors are chosen (Blue, yellow, red).
    We bought my wedding ring (it's a matching set, but FI didn't buy them together). We're waiting on his until closer to the wedding because the kind he wants can't be resized.
    Honeymoon is decided on and the cruise part is booked.
    I got a bunch of silk roses for a steal on Black Friday so flowers are half bought, but hey didn't have any yellow roses.
    Wedding party is decided on, but we're waiting until closer to ask people.
    We bought print them yourself invitations for 50% off.
    Favors are decided on. Nothing big and fancy, just matchboxes. But they fit in our very small budget.

    And I think that's it. Our big thing is still to find a DJ. I just have no idea where to start with that one.

  • I love shopping at Michaels!! I think we all will be spending plenty of time there in the upcoming months. 
  • As of right now:

    - saving account up and running

    - chosen ceremony site

    -chosen reception site

    -narrowed down the colors we want

    Seems like i am a little behind compared to everyone LOL, we don't want to start buying anything for the wedding yet until the end of this year. We just want to make sure something unexpected doesn't happen between then. However, once 2013 hits, it's going to be full swing ahead =D

  • Wow, I'm impressed with how much everyone has gotten done so far! We have: -Our Date (9/20/13) -Hashed out the gritty details of the budget -Savigs account up and running with some $ saved already (not much) -Estimated the probable guest list and potential Wedding party -Booked our venue and ceremony site (it's at the same place) -Booking our caterer on Friday! -I've browsed vistaprint for save the dates and invites but I'm nervous to order yet because I can't decide if I want to print them myself yet or not. -I've also started looking online at dresses that I like, again haven't actually gone to try anything on yet. I'm hoping to get as much as possible done over the summer when I'm not in school so I will have a ton more time to devote to the wedding. Kokokid, we have the same date :)
