July 2013 Weddings

less then a year away!

So, I wanted to post this post when the date was exactly one year out (July 12), but life's been so busy between grad school, work, and moving, I just havent gotten a chance lol So I figured if I posted in July that still counts :)

Here's what we've accomplished so far in our planning:
  • Venue
  • Florist
  • My dress
  • My earrings, veil, garter, tiara, grandmother's handkerchief for something old/borrowed
  • Bridesmaids gifts
  • Flower-girl dress (but we're waiting a bit to order it b/c shes 5 and constantly growing :D)
  • Photographer
  • Engagement pics
  • Invitations and save the dates
  • DIY projects outlined
  • My parents gift
  • Bought my wedding band

Still need to do:

  • Block off hotel rooms
  • Book Honeymoon
  • His and groomsman attire
  • Groomsman gifts
  • Cake
  • DJ
  • His parents gift (I'm finding them harder to shop for :(  )
  • In February we go to the venue's taste testing and pick the menu
  • Bridesmaid dresses
  • My shoes!  (I really want to find them already, but I'm just not having any luck :(  )
  • Guest favors/gifts
  • Finalize guest list
  • Finish wedding website
  • Register at Macy's
  • Find/plan hair stylist and day of make up and style
  • Plan/find/organize for rehearsal dinner/cocktail
  • Plan/organize day after brunch
  • Buy His wedding band
  • Marriage License/legal stuff
  • Order passport for honeymoon


I think we're doing pretty good for being just a little less then a year out, but I'll definitely be more happy and more relaxed as we cross off more items off of our to do list :)
