I’m getting married in 5 months and have found it mostly fun (except that our venue was under construction and they couldn’t tell us if it was going to be done in time until about a month ago – so that was stressful) but for the most part I find the planning process fun! That said, I keep having this feeling that I’m forgetting a million things because we haven’t hired a planner and am doing it mostly myself. Sounds like you’ve got a lot ticked off the to-do list! A few on mine that you haven’t mentioned (just in case!) are hair, makeup, mani & pedi booked for the bridal party, entertainment (band, dj, or DIY ipod) and officiant!
Well I found this gorgeous white dress- for under $100- so I thought it was about time to give you a wedding update!
WHYYYYYY did all of my friends and family make it seem like planning a wedding was so easy and fun??!! Maybe it is different for me, but wedding planning is stressful and hard!!!
How do people do this AND have full-time jobs?!! So much respect for you guys! This is a full-time job in itself!!
If you would ask any of my childhood friends, they would tell you I am a procrastinator. I have never disagreed with that! It is not a good idea to procrastinate when planning a wedding!
I now have three months left before my wedding and the list of things to do just keeps getting longer!!
Here are the things I have:
-the venue (coming atcha Banff, Canada, June 2017!!!)
-save the dates have gone out
-rehearsal dinner space
-where we are staying before the wedding, the night before, and after
– bridesmaid dresses ordered
-colors picked out
-a florist with an idea of what I am looking for (wildroseevents)
-a videographer (stewardsproductions.com)
-a photographer (my sis adrialea.com)
annnddddd that might be it…
I feel like just listing this out for you guys is actually really helping!!
Tomorrow I need to work on:
-booking shuttle services
-renting the chairs and table decor
-sending out invitations
-shoes for the wedding
I will keep you updated on my Instagram stories to let you know what all I got done from the list above. After I finish that list… there will be an entire new list :/ I will keep you updated up until the wedding so that you can see where we are at on everything!
If you have been looking for a great dress, this one is under $100 and so gorgeous! I am wearing a size XS and it fits true to size! I love all of the pretty details and tried to give enough close-ups so that you would be able to see it too!
You can never have too many white dresses!
