August 2013 Weddings

I feel like I don't have any planning to do for the next few months

So far we have:
1) Venue
2) Caterer
3) Officiant
4) Photographer
5) My dress
6) DJ
7) Guest list
8) STDs have been sent
9) BM Dresses
10) Registered
11) Website is done

I'd like FI to figure out what he's wearing soon, but that's on him.
We need to figure out the cake soon.

Other than that is there anything I should be doing? I'm casually looking at invitations but not thinking too hard about them yet. It just feels weird to not have anything to do at the moment.

    I'm at roughly the same spot as you are.  We just got back our proofs of our invites, so we'll be finalizing that soon.  My FI also needs to get his suit.  We'll be having our cake tasting and ordering the beginning of April.  I'm with you though, I feel like I don't have anything to do for awhile.  I'm starting to look into DIY projects, so that I feel like I am doing something.

    Hi ladies!!!

    Im also feeling the same way & glad someone posted it :)

    My mom said "Think if this as the calm before the storm" haha

    We just did our cake tasting this wknd - it was a lot of fun!!!

    My best friend who just got married in september said to use this time for little things you may forget or feel overwhelmed to do at the 3 month mark: i.e. get your garter, shoes, jewelry, undergarments, write out thank you notes to the girls/guys/parents; start gift shopping for the bridal party. Make a list of things for the day off and of course my favorite: use pinterest ;)
    Anniversary

    Vacation

    Smitten has some great suggestions. I think if you want to go ahead and start seriously looking at invitaions that would be good and then tackle the men's wear. And you can start looking at what you'll want for flowers.

    These are great suggestions! I have all the major stuff done as well (just finished designing our own invitations!) and other than ordering BM dresses next month, everything is set for now. Buying and checking off some small things has helped make me feel productive during this slow time.

    I agree with the PP use this time to do little things, I just ordered our guestbook so I dont have to worry about it later.

    I love Smitten2012's list of little things to accomplish

    Are you two taking a honeymoon after the wedding? That may be your next "big" thing to take care of. Other than that, I myself am onto a lot of those smaller things, such as shoes, jewelery, and reception details.  We still need to book our flights for the honeymoon, but that will be sometime next month.

    I'm in the same boat as you. Only I did get my invites. They are lavender pressed flower invites which we loved!

    Oh that is definitely happening. Every day at my desk (work is slow lol) I do a resistance band arm workout. I refuse to run in the snow and ice of Chicago winters, though, so I'll have to wait until April probably to start that.

    And to a PP, we're waiting until this time next year to go on our honeymoon. More money and vacation time will be available. We could start looking at where we'd like to go, though.
