  • Woo congrats!! I really like that dress. Are you doing the latte color (that's what first shows up for me!)?

    I have...
    Church reserved (but we need to go through the Catholic pre-wedding process still)
    Reception Hall
    Photographer
    Videographer
    DJ/Photobooth/Lighting
    Put a deposit on the florist (still need to iron out details/designs)
    My Dress
    Save the Dates printed (still need to work on addressing and sending)
    Hair stylist - will be done by our close family friend and since she's "in the industry" she's on the lookout for a reliable, good airbrush artist because I think that's what I want to try for make up.

    Phew! Can't believe we're finally in THE year!

  • I feel like I'm so behind compared to most of you. Church booked Venus booked. Officiant agreed And color scheme chosen We also sent our STDs already. I know it's kind of early but they were sent with Christmas cards to save money I made a couple appts to try dresses on next weekend with my aunt and grandma. We have a tasting set up for the following Monday. I'm also going to a bridal show to get more contacts for dj and floral vendors.
