October 2014 Weddings

Progress?

Just checking to see how everyone's progress is. Fi and I have our venue (ceremony and reception all in one) and our JP, now we're talking to photographers. How is everyone else doing?

Re: Progress?

  • We have our venue picked out (Also all in one both wedding and reception there). That's all we have that's set in stone at the moment..I felt like I could relax a bit now that I know exactly where we are getting married...
  • I was the same way @jennifergooch but Fi was eager to get other things lined up.

  • We have our photographer, reception venue, ceremony venue/officiant, ceremony musicians and DJ, and  hair and makeup artist all booked! I ordered my dress, and it should be in this month! We have a deal for the tuxes and the bridesmaids dresses picked---just need to order. We are meeting with a baker on Tuesday and most likely booking because FI tasted the cupcakes on a recon mission for me! ;)

    I also got a ton of DIY projects done: wreaths for the reception venue's door and behind the headtable; all table number signs, bathroom basket signs, wedding wand signs, fun fact cards about us for the tables, and two sets of save-the-date cards; my jewelry for the wedding as well as for my bridesmaids; spiced up the wooden lanterns that will be hanging at the venue's entrance; mercury glass votive candle holders; cookie table stands and jars; wedding wands for our getaway....... lots of things!

    I feel like I'm on top of things, but I'll fall behind shortly because I'm starting my REAL teaching job in a few weeks.

  • Wow.. You guys are busy!!


    We have our venue and save the dates done. We've picked the church just have to put down our deposit. And most of the Guest List is done. 

    Oh yeah I have my cake topper. 

    Everything else is kinda up in the air. No clue where to start or when to start on most things.

  • Oh yeah I forgot we had our STDs done. Well we designed them and bought the paper to print them on. We just haven't printed them yet because we're going to hold off sending them for a little bit.

    We have our venue, photog, DJ and caterer. I have also spoken to a cake vendor that I have my heart set on. I have the ribbon for the bouquets and I bought a couple craft supplies for our centerpieces yesterday. Oh, also my dress is bought and my shoes should be here tomorrow! I should be ordering my TY notes today.

  • I feel like I'm behind on things since I just have the venue...Ahhh
  • We have a venue, DJ, and I've ordered my dress but I'm going to hold off on getting it altered for a little while.
  • We have our venue (and ceremony location). Our officiant who is also FI grandmother. DJ and photographer. I have settled on STD and are just waiting to have our engagement photos done (which are getting done in early September). I have figured out our invitation situation and we are going to DIY all of our invitations/programs/menus/thankyous. I have also figured out what I want to do for escort cards! Lately my new thing is pricing out items and book marking it. I just started dress shopping. I fell in love with two dresses. One from Davids Bridal and one by Marisa. I also think I'm going to look around a bit more to see whats out there. 

    My next big to-do is to sit down with my parent and future in-laws and finalize some of the guest list. Much of our extended family will not be invited due to budget. Plus I rather have friends who are like family there than family that I never talk to see. I have a feeling this is going to go over like a fart in church with my family. :/

  • We have our venue (ceremony + reception all in one) and that's about it! We do have a caterer, but have yet to decide on the menu. I think once October comes and we realize we only have a year left, we'll accomplish much more. It feels so far away!

  • We haven't really made any progress lately, the summer's too busy!

    We have the following booked and deposits made:

    Venue, dj, photog, hair, harpist, officiant, 1/2 of bridal party asked (no deposit made for these), invitations and stds have arrived (used a groupon - vistaprint).

    Centrepieces will be a diy project for winter - here it gets so cold that there's really nothing to do!

  • Man @des9724 I feel so behind. I teach too but this summer I feel like I did less than I did while teaching! We have venue, church, priest, dress, photographer, engagement pictures, DJ done. We will have our baker done this weekend as well. Started collecting brooches and have thought about flowers (ugh), videographers, photo booth, hair and makeup. Oh yeah and we started drinking A TON OF WINE - for the centerpieces of course!

    We have our ceremony date and time booked with our church, and we just received a pre-marriage couseling questionare from our priest.

    Our venue is booked, deposit down, and we meet with the DOC and head chef in September to go over the floorplan and menu ideas.

    All vendors are booked and deposits down- transportation, photographer/photo booth, DJ, and MUA. My engagement photos are scheduled for October of this year, and my make up trial is the same day so I can rock the photos!

    Dress was chosen in April and deposit down, will order next month or so.

    "Love is the one thing we're capable of perceiving that transcends time and space."


  • we have our venue reserved but the deposit has not been paid (also ceremony and reception in same place)... we'ce verbally told people to save the date, but haven't sent any out yet since we are still working on the guest list! also looking online for a wedding planner... and of course browsing endless dress pics :)

  • We have our venue which will be ceremony & reception site. It was a HUGE relief to get that item checked off the list!

  • We have our venue, it's a nature/wildlife conservancy and is actually where we got engaged!  We will have the ceremony and reception there, so having that plus a date set feels like a huge relief.
