    That is really cheap!  I will have to look into that as well, there have to be some apple orchards around here were I can get a lot of them for a good price.

  • WOW!! Maybe I need to get a move on.  I have Venue and photographer booked.  

    Doing A LOT of DIY including almost all homebrew beer (we will have a few standard kegs for those bud light/coors drinkers).  Brewed the first 10 gallons this week- it's a beer that will better as it ages over a year.  
  • We have been kind of at a standstill.  I have a photographer, venue, DJ, uplighting and photobooth.  I have been looking at makeup artists.  I contacted one that I really want but she does not book until May of next year for October weddings.  I am going to have her do my engagement pictures makeup though this October just to make sure I like it.  I don't plan on dress shopping until October either.

    Church booked
    Reception venue booked 
    DJ booked
    Photographer will be decided tomorrow
    brooch boquet about 75% done
    Invitation suite 50% designed
    Guest list almost finalized

    Our reception venue includes the cake, so no hiring needed there.  
    Not dress shopping until December as I am losing weight and also can't get the people I really want to be there together until then.
  • Venue- includes cake
    DJ
    Photog
    STD's
    Hotel/shuttles for guests
    MOH/BM asked (only attendants we're having)

    Right now we're focusing on a ceremony location since our venue doesn't have any usable outdoor space and we really want to have it outside if possible. But taking everything else pretty slow and steady. Oh yeah and Saving! Saving! Saving!

    Ceremony/reception venues booked
    Photographer booked
    STDs picked out but not ordered
    Guest list finalized

    Currently putting together some Pinterest boards with cake, dress, invitation, and floral/decor ideas. We aren't doing much DIY. I don't need that kind of stress.

  • Reception hall booked
    My dress is purchased
    Colors chosen
    Attendants chosen and asked
    List nearly finalized

    That's what we have done.  My FI and I went to one bridal show and plan to attend another next month.  We have done a lot of talking/dreaming/web surfing about cakes, invitations, honeymoons, flowers, and decor.  We are not worrying about favors.

  • Venue booked
    and contract/quote for the florist and caterer received. Next step is paying the deposits for those, most likely within the next month or so.

    Also currently working on booking the honeymoon.

    Reading the other posts here makes me feel totally behind :( lol
