I've been lurking, mainly because things have been crazy around here, so I figured I'd share some of my check marks so I can read them and feel like I have maybe, possibly, accomplished something
-FI ... I think he's the number one thing on my list because, well, I've been planning my wedding since I was 5. I just needed him to come along.
-Florist (my mom, so I guess I've had my florist my entire life) we have most of the flowers bought (we're going with silk) and she's in the midst of working on my bouquet (because it is the most important after all
-Checking out reception venues. We've crossed all but three off of our list, it's just a matter of emaiing the others and really figuring out which one gives us the most bang, and beautiful-ness for our buck, and we have a few tastings lined up, so whoever have yummier food
-Guest List - for the most part. We have our guest list for the most part figured out and spreadsheeted, with the exception of some of his people.
-Engagement Photographer - If it would ever stop raining here in STL we could finally get the pictures taken, and get our save the dates picked out and ordered.
-Bridal Party - All of the bridal party has been asked and accepted, with the exception of one bridesmaid position that I have yet to fill.
-The Unofficial Photographer - My brother in law is the only member of my family not in the wedding, and he is also the one with the most high tech camera, so he'll be taking pictures so that hopefully we don't miss anything.
-VIdeographer - And by videographer, I mean my Dad's best friend will be running around with a video camera. I'd love to have a professional, but I'd also like my parents to not go broke, so so long as I have a video, FI can edit it and make it pretty.
Soon to be done:
-Wedding dress shopping this weekend.
-Our priest should be getting back to me this week. Lots of craziness was happening with Holy Week, and he promised he'd get back to me shortly after Easter, since our original priest refused to answer my voicemails.
I think that's about all. I also have our "pre-engagement" up to the actual engagement scrapbooking album done. I figured the engagement was a good place to stop that album, and everything else can be in the pre-wedding album.
I have that all plotted out in my head
