    Your jewelry? Have your attendants gotten their attire yet? Are you doing save-the-dates? Centerpieces? You really were on it girl...I'm drawing a blank. I will come back if I think of anything else.

    @eagles, my jewelry will be my something old and something borrowed, so that's taken care of. My sis has her dress already and my cousin is ordering her dress next week. I decided to drop my other bm since I haven't asked her yet and now we're getting married sooner. I think it's too late for save the dates since we'll be getting married the summer. I figured I'll send out invites sometime in May. If I get my venue I want I don't have to worry about centerpieces because they provide those.
     
    **EDIT** I gotta find a date the guys can get their tuxedos from the formalwear outlet soon.

    @Pasma & Desi, I've been in wedding planning overload since I've been jobless. Planning this wedding became my fulltime job, so it worked out great that we're moving the date up now. My FI, fam, and friends that I had lost my mind buying all this stuff so early. lol

    @Pasma, not yet. I'm pretty much open to whatever Friday, Saturday, or Sunday the venue has open this July. I'm secretly hoping for July 2 though. I think I'll call the venue later today to see what they have open so I can plan all I can before Sunday comes around.

    Something for your table numbers?
    That's what I'm shopping for now, so that's on my mind..lol

    Also, if you're going to do July 2nd, you might want to check with your vendors and make sure you're not going to get charged extra since that's July 4th weedkend. It was going to cost us an extra $500 to do Memorial weekend. I never even checked with my other vendors cuz that $500 helped us make a QUICK decision!

    OMG...you are less than three months out. Your venue may actually DISCOUNT you...some of the venues that I looked into were much less expensive if you booked "last minute" maybe because they otherwise probably wouldn't book the date.

    Good point Eagles. I was not able to work any deals because I booked far in advance. We tried, but basically that's what they told us. I hope they will give you a good deal :)

    @star, I know the venue I have in mind doesn't charge extra for holiday weekends because our original date was July 2, 2011.  But thanks for the headsup.

    @eagles, I never thought about extra discounts because it's last minute. I gotta ask about that!

    You ladies are so helpful!
