    Thank you ladies!  I see some of you are getting married pretty soon.  How is the planning going?  I have booked my Venue, Photographer, Videographer and DJ and now I find that I have nothing to do. lol.. I don't want to book a florist, limo, etc.. this early so I'm just kind of waiting now.

    Your on top of it all!! I only had my venu a year our. I have my venue, photography, videography, ordered my dress, reception shoes, hair/makeup, finishing invitation design, and a few other things. Planning is pretty smooth especially when your a decisive person and know what you want.

    I've pretty much gotten everything underway as of now...
    Reception venue was the first thing I got done at 1 year and a half out.  Then DJ, Ceremony venue, Videographer, Photographer (it's my uncle), Dress, BM dresses, Invites (haven't sent them yet, I'll get to that at the end of June), BM gifts. 

    I'm meeting with my florist next week to sign the contract and give her the deposit.  Then I'll just have to start looking at some favors and the boys have to get their suits! 

    1st dress fitting is in 22 days!  I'm excited for it!

    Welcome to the board Amor! Nati, did not know your wedding was out out of state. Is it hard planning from so far away? Wow you plus one year ladies are on top of your game, having picked out a venue so quickly! The sooner the better because there was a venue that I really liked that was booked on my day and that was back in February! They told me to change my date but my date has a special meaning.
    Cynthia, it is very exciting when you get your first dress fitting so congrats girl!
    I lost some weight so I had to order a smaller size, so I will have my next dress fitting in two weeks for the new smaller size:)

    Yes, I tried to book as much as I could early because I know how quickly dates get taken.  I always told myself that I wouldn't be crazy about it and that I wouldn't get my ring and go nuts with planning right away. lol... well that didn't happen, I think that something just automatically comes over you when you get the ring. Luckily my Fiance is very good about it all.

    Actually no, cuz I live here hahaha! ;-) I'm in Quito, Ecuador. It'll be 2 years this summer! It IS hard however trying to coordinate people in different countries. So far I haven't had to deal with much of it yet, but I'm sure as the date gets closer it'll get tougher. For example, BMs and their apparel is an issue I don't even want to deal with... ever! Lol I still don't know what I'll do to get everything to work out easily!

    I meant to say out of country not state(lol) because I am planning from out of state and it hasn't been an issue for me. I looked at different bridesmaids dresses from different boutiques but had to go with David's Bridal since I have one bridesmaid in Hawaii and it was easier for all my girls to go to their nearest store to get the same dress.

    Also reading reviews on vendors and even dresses(D&B online lets you read reviews from people who have purchased dresses) helped me make my final decision on things, especially being from out of state.
