I am excited to finally say we are at the one year mark!!!! Also wanted to say that this board is great. I moved to NJ 2 months ago, we're right on the border of PA, so I checked out the NEPA board.... crickets!!! A few gals responded to my post but all agreed that their board is pretty dead.
We put an offer on a house in Stroudsburg, PA this week. Still waiting to hear back. I am still unemployed and it sucks. I need to get out of vacation mode and hit the job applications with full force again. We also rescued an adorable 12 week old puppy! He's probably peeing in the kitchen as I type this, lol.
With a year away, I think we're fairly ahead of the game... so far we have:
ceremony/venue location - Succop Conservancy in Butler (Medure's catering)
officiant - friend
dress - DB's on McKnight
bridal party - 10 total
photographer - Hot Metal Studio
e-pics scheduled for 9/17/12 (with Maria Palermo)
hair from a friend who works at CJ Cochran in New Castle, Pa
makeup from Ciel
possible DJ - friend
STDs/Invites picked out
first draft of guest list
partial wedding website
possible day of wedding planner - friend
I think that's all for now... I can't wait to work on more checklist items!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
