November 2013 Brides

Recommended Posts

The guys got the nice white shirts wherever they wanted- I think most went to Kohls.  My husband had to buy a new french cuff shirt from Brooks Brothers for the wedding. lol.

I am just curious how everyone is doing with their planning.
Anyone want to share what stage they are at?

 

Personally, I have reserved our date at our resort, and we have a reservation booked at a resort for our second week.  I have not yet booked flights, or booked our stay at the wedding resort.

 

I have my dress, but my fiance doesn't have his suit yet.  My sisters have ordered their BM dresses.

 

Other than that I don't think I have anything else accomplished.  Am I the only one that still hasn't booked trip and flights?

Hi Dina,

 

I like to be over prepared so don't put too much stock in what I've done plus I'd rather have less to do during the summer so we can have fun at the beach! 

 

We have our trip booked through our TA. We have the photographers booked and the deposit down with them. I have my dress ordered and my Aunt will do the alterations in late summer/early fall. I've started buying some gifts for the bridesmaids and some things for the OOT bags as I see stuff on sale or at good prices. Also as I do this, I keep them in a suitcase to remind myself HOW MUCH I'm planning to bring down so I don't go overboard. I'm currently sewing napkins for the reception because I like the look of mismatched prints and they'll be light to bring down but add some needed colour. I also figured, why not I have the time and we can keep them afterwards. I'd like to order our wedding bands soon (just have to get the FI's ring sized as we're ordering his online) and find a grey suit for him. We also have to find affordable grey pants and shirts for the groomsmen and work on our playlists (slowly) as we're not having a DJ.

 

To be honest when you think of the things we HAVE to do, there aren't that many. But I want to do a lot of little extras because it feels like I have the time as compared to my friends who had traditional weddings and were run off their feet going to appointment after appointment with vendors. Lucky us!

 

Anyone else?

I too am over prepared...you can look at some of my threads to see what I have already completed.  However, in fairness to myself, I own a cottage resort and marina that operates only during the summer months. So needless to say that between May and September, I won't have much time to do anything relating to our wedding.  I'm trying to get as much done as possible now so that I don't panic in October! LOL
