We’re just six months away, six months! I think this mile marker really hit home and I realized how quickly everything was going by, and how little time I still have left. I’m told that I’m ahead of schedule and that I shouldn’t have anything to worry about, but I still feel like I have a lot to do.
Here’s what we were able to accomplish this month
-Sent save the dates
-Booked the cake baker
-Created a short list of rehearsal dinner restaurants
-Booked the DJ
-Found my wedding day shoes
-Bought wedding bands
-Verbal agreement with officiant
Some things really just fell into place and have been fairly easy. Our cake baker lives down the street from us and has a mutual acquaintance, so once we had a meet and greet we knew we were in the right direction. Sending out the save the dates was pretty easy as well, with the exception of a few stragglers, but now that they’re out, I can focus on the invitations!
Some things have not been as easy, such as finding heels that will look good with my dress and also come in a size 5. Luckily I found the perfect pair, and they fit perfectly. Finding restaurants for after the rehearsal dinner has also been a little challenging as well. Trying to keep proximity, budget and non chain restaurants for consideration wasn’t as easy as we hoped, but we’ve narrowed it down, and now have to try them all out.
To keep myself from stressing out, I’ve started to make a list of what I want to accomplish every weekend. It’s helping, but I still can’t help that I’m forgetting things. Thankfully my mom and sister have done a few shopping trips to help me with centerpieces and decorations.
This was a good month for getting things done, but it’s only going to get more hectic from this point on. Here’s what I want to accomplish in the next four weeks!
-Book our honeymoon
-Finalize dinner menu for reception
-Decide on formalwear
-Decide on favors
-Book our florist
-Book the officiant
-Order our Guest Book
-Finish our wedding website
-Prep wine bottles for painting
How do you break down your wedding projects? What little things am I forgetting?
