Today is the 25th, which means it’s time for an official wedding planning update! (If you’re curious why I post planning updates on the 25th, it’s because we got engaged on June 25, and I published the first planning update with one month under my belt (on July 25th). I suppose it’s become a habit!) I skipped a few months over the holidays, so I have much to report with 7+ months to go!
Since my last update…
— I purchased a wedding gown!
— I went bridesmaid dress shopping (and we are close to deciding!).
— I bought my dream wedding shoes! (Thank you again for your help – I’ll be posting an update on Monday!)
— We confirmed all seven members of our bridal party (yep, we’ll be uneven!).
— We asked two dear friends to do readings at our ceremony.
— I booked a hair and makeup artist and I’ve thought about the wedding morning (still working on my playlist!).
— We booked an invitation designer.
— I started my first DIY project! (Hint: it involves ribbon)
— We finished our wedding website.
— I’m pretty sure we’ve collected all the silver we need for our floral arrangements.
— We assembled, addressed, and mailed our save the dates.
— We booked a suite for the wedding weekend.
— We reserved our tent and placed a preliminary linen order.
— We booked a videographer (!!!).
Next up on the list?
— I hope to confirm our preliminary rental and lounge furniture order and put down a deposit.
— We are this close to booking a band! Seriously, I know I’ve been saying that for months, but this time, we really are.
— We’re also hoping to confirm our ceremony musicians in the next month or so.
— I’d like to buy John’s tux, and hopefully outfit the groomsmen at the same time.
Much more about all this goodness soon! Anything you’re particularly curious to hear about? I’d be happy to start with your suggestions (unless, of course, you say my dress – that one’s off limits!).
