Planning Process

I want to liven this board up!  I don't really feel a connection to my local board.  So just a little check in...Where are people at in their planning process?

Can't wait to hear from you ladies!

Re: Planning Process

  • Kendall, i can vouch for hippolover (great name!) -- once you pick the venue things just sort of snap into place..it really sets the tone for your vision...

    with that said, that is the ONLY thing i have picked. I am sitting down with the planner today to go over budget details and interview a photographer...i can't wait to do that b/c i want to get E-pics out of the way so I can order the STDs (anyone else really giggle at that acronym? I mean, it's the only tied about STD! haha)

    Sounds like i am WAY behind all you other overacheivers...need to play catchup! :)

  • Only needing to send out the invitations and have the final fitting to do before the big day. Working on honeymoon plans since three teen aged kids are coming with us it could be very interesting. Good luck all anyone from Totonto Ontario area needing help drop me a line... I am bitting at the bit. Jan seems so far away Silk
  • Hi, I'm Tara, and I'm new to the boards. My date is 1-21-12.

    I have the venue, photographer, and band booked. In the next week or so I will be booking my videographer. Also my wedding gown and bridesmaides dresses are purchased. My save the dates are already done and have arrived. I just need to addresss and mail them. My invitations are about to be ordered from Ebay.

    I feel like I am way ahead of the game and I am sad because I still want to continue wedding planning because I love it so much!
