I cannot believe how quickly each month is passing by! Just 8 months to go, and I can’t help to wonder if I’m not doing enough yet. So far no stress, but I feel like I should be doing a lot more.
Here’s what we’ve accomplished this month
-Booked Hair Stylist
-Had our engagement party
-Reserved hotel for guests
-Bridesmaid dresses picked out and ordered
-Designed Save the Dates
-Ordered Save the Dates
This month I really wanted to focus on things that don’t need to be done right away, but if I got them done, then I’d have less stress later on. One of the main things we’ve been doing is working towards our centerpieces. I’m not ready to show pictures yet, but they involve wine bottles and corks….so we’ve been doing our best to drink a bit of wine. This is sure to be an ongoing project over the next few months, but I’m not too mad about it 😉
My favorite day of wedding planning this past month was the day I was able to go bridesmaid dress shopping with my girls. It was so fun to sit back and watch them try on dresses while I relaxed. We lucked out and found a dress they all love for a great price!
That night we all attended our engagement party thrown by my Matron of Honor, Maid of Honor and mom. We had so many friends and family stop by, I truly felt so loved and fortunate to have so many amazing people in our lives. Unfortunately, I only took three pictures the entire night, but that means we were just enjoying ourselves a lot!
Looking ahead, I’m not sure how much I’ll accomplish with the holidays, so it will probably be mostly looking at ideas and planning the next couple of months. But just in case, here’s what I’d like to accomplish in the next month.
-Create short list of honeymoon locations
-Obtain all addresses for guests
-Order Guest Book
-Find my wedding day shoes
-Finish our wedding website
