Can I propose...

Since we have so many people on this board now, can I propose Monday have a post with all the checks?  Things we got done WR and things we plan on working on next.

Re: Can I propose...

  • Sure.. sounds good :) I got my invite design process started this week. I got in touch with my friend and we were able to meet and go over everything I need, work on the monogram, etc.

  • I like this idea too.
    FI and I went over the guest list this weekend, and cut it down a bit (by about 30 people).  I'd like to try to cut another 30-40 if possible but this far out there still remains a lot of question marks. 
    Next up is to decide if we want to do save the dates, and if so, starting looking at ordering them as well as our invitations.

  • I ordered my STDs this weekend.  Magnetstreet has $30 off if you spend $150... so they ended up being like 96 cents each for the large magnets.  I also ordered return addresses from vista print with both FI and my name on them.

    Now we will finalize the guest list and then it's mission get addresses!

  • Sounds good! I just wish I had something to contribute! The only check I can really contribute is a big freaking fight with family about the wedding last week. LIke, epic crying fight. :(

    Or, I take it back, we mailed the DJ his deposit, too, but Epic Crying is what I remember from last week. Yay?

    Checks I'm HOPING to have done this week:
    -Officlally have time off from work for wedding (this is SO late, it's embarrassing)
    -Book honeymoon
    -Start wedding website/purchase URL
    -Mail deposit/contract for flowers/decor

    If I get two out of four of those done, I'll be happy. :-/

  • To get done this week...
    Get in touch with the caterer to see about her needs for tables
    Then get in touch with rental guy to finalize tents/tables/chairs etc
    Send back photography contract
    Get the damn band contract hopefully.
    Get the damn hotel block contract. (Both of these vendors are making my head hurt)

    Oh and try to fix the STDs so I can mail them out.

  • We received our invitations (handmade Italian paper) Friday. Now I need to finalize the wording and send them out to a printer. Still doing battle in finding a caterer. Hopefully, we can get that one sorted out soon. Saving a lot of my to-do things for March, which will be mostly just my decorative diy details. I'm trying really hard to pace myself since I know there's still 10 months to go! It's so hard to be patient sometimes ;)

  • I finally contacted a florist now I just have to set up a time to meet with her! This week were are hoping to deal with some transportation issues and I need to contact the photographer to see if we can do pictures just for the save the dates since I really don't want the e-shoot in Winter.

    Nice idea!!

    Last week: bought my dress!! and did FOCCUS survey (an assessment used with my church)

    This week: transportation, finish up STD design with FI's friend, and finalize centerpiece ideas so we can start working on them!

  • I like this idea...

    I have to research hotels in the area where we are getting married.  I may get some names of places and have my parents check them out while they are in FL.

  • Great idea!! Last week: Selected our baker for wedding cake Ordered STDs Started collecting addresses Finally got the contract signed for hotel block This week: Send deposit to baker Find a salon for bridal party
  • Last Week/Last Weekend:  Things are kind of at a stand still right now. Not too much else I can do since a lot is already done. That being said, we ordered FI's wedding band because I had a great deal from Blue Nile.  

    This Week/Weekend: I really need to stop overanalyzing STD ideas and just put something together and send it out. I keep wanting to make sure that whatever idea I come up with is going to be practical and useful for all of our guests, and not something that they will just put in a pile and forget about. AND, I'm totally against magnets, so that is definitely not an option.

    Any thoughts on STDs? We do have our e-pics back, so I could use those for something.

  • I had an anticheck when fiance and I sat down to cut down the list and ended up adding 8 people!  The guest list thing is turning into a nightmare. 
  • But on the more positive side, I did choose invitaations from etsy and will probably be ordering my dress from J Crew this week.  I had a great consultant who told me to wait a week because they might be having a promotion. 
  • We went over the guest list and I was able to get most of the addresses. I want to try and get the STD's addressed soon and sent out in February. My FMIL made the reservations for the rehersal dinner.

    This week I plan to:
    Call the bridal store to make appointments for both FMIL and bridesmaides
    Continue to look on Pinterest for ideas
    Figure out what I want for a bouquet.

  • Photographer finally booked

    Hopefully this week we can revisit the guest list :/ also plan to start looking for BM dresses. FI is going to start interviewing DJ's and work on booking the honeymoon (right now looking like Jamaica or St. Lucia). Cake baker is next on the list after all this is done.

  • We finally sent the contract and deposit to Photographer, other than that I've got nothin!
  • Hmm. I didn't feel like we'd done a lot, but listing it made me think we're farther along than i thought. We have the reception site that has a caterer, my cousins are doing video and taking pictures (they do wedding pics on weekends), i just contacted the church and I have vistaprint coupons for whenever the guest list gets finalized for the invitations (waiting for parents to add their list). Mom and I just started dress shopping. Thats a good start, right?
