We're making progress

I really suck at updating this space.  I do.  I think I just get anxious and frustrated with wedding planning when I open up the blogger browser and scratch my head about what to write here.  I do have several guest posts I need to throw up here, and I don't know why that has not happened yet.  Very soon, I promise!  But today, you are stuck with me.

We are almost finished with all of the big decisions to make wedding wise.  If you look at the list of major things to consider, it appears we're doing well.

1) Venue
2) Event Rentals
3) Catering
4) Wedding dress (1/3 done... pattern picked out, need fabric and to get it made!)
5) Photographer
6) Officiant (1/2 way there
7) DJ (good lead on it)
8) Bridal party attire (everything hinges on the fabric for the bridesmaid's dresses, which has not yet been selected.  Working on it)
9) Flowers
10) Decor... this will never be 100% done, I am sure
11) Cake situation (1/24 of the way there?  Lots to do)

Yesterday and today are super-duper get stuff done for the wedding kind of days.  Yesterday, we signed the contract with our photographer!!!!!!!!!!!!  She happens to be someone I have known since I was 17, and I could not be more pleased.  I think it's important to have people you know, like, and trust doing important things like feeding your guests, being your personal paparazzi, etc.  So booking people I know and like is a must for us.

Today we have a consultation for the wedding flowers, and we are also hopefully going to go see a high-end apparel fabric shop about the fabric for all of the dresses.  It promises to be an exciting day, if you like planning nuptials.  I don't.  So really, it's just a way for me to knock out as many things as I can in one swift kick.

Let's cross our fingers that after today, the magic fabric will be found, and we can get on to all of the crap we haven't been able to do yet.  Wish me luck!


  1. Very cool blog. Interesting posts. ;)
    Nice atmosphere guests with you here on the blog. ;]
    Yours. Have a nice day. !

    Follow me on facebook fanpage and blog
    I'm very concerned about this, please. :)

  2. I couldn't agree more! Having someone that I knew (does it count as "knowing them" if they're a blog friend?) taking my pictures at my wedding was one of the single most important decisions that we made (and honestly it was quite a hard fought battle...because my parents didn't think we needed a photographer AT ALL).


We love your comments! They're like extra-thoughtful, free early wedding presents =)
