Wedding: 7 Months to go!

by Meghann on June 5, 2012

Time for another monthly check-in!

With 7 months to go, we have…

And here’s what we still need (thinking long term here):

  • something blue, something borrowed, something new
  • Garter (FSU themed? ;) )
  • DJ (we have a couple of suggestions from our venue, just need to get on calling them)
  • Videographer (Still on the hunt for one in my price range.)
  • Chair rentals (for ceremony)
  • Bridesmaid dresses/ cowgirl boots (We have a lead on dresses! I ordered one as a sample – I’ll report back when it comes in. ;) )
  • Bridesmaid gifts
  • Flower girl dress
  • Something for the flower girl to carry
  • Tuxes (suits?) for groom/ groomsmen
  • Groomsmen gifts
  • Gifts for parents
  • Wedding bands
  • Ceremony script
  • Day-of timelines
  • Center pieces
  • Flowers
  • Decorations
  • hair/ make-up
  • Location for rehearsal dinner
  • Invitations
  • Programs? (thinking of going the chalkboard route)
  • Creative seating chart
  • Guestbook
  • Cake (I know my grandmother and uncle are making it, but I haven’t confirmed details)
  • Dessert bar (double as favors)
  • Alcohol (caterer is supplying the bartender)
  • Navy shoes
  • Marriage license (thinking long term here)
  • To book the honeymoon <— decided to wait circle back on this 6 months out.
  • Find someone to do alterations on bridal gown
  • Reserve shuttle service between hotel and wedding site
  • …and ????? I’m sure I’m leaving a few things off here

We’re at a point right now where the “biggie” items are taken care of, and I feel the small stuff can wait for now. i’ll probably regret this decision when I’m scrambling last minute the month before the wedding to pull stuff together, but we’ll see. ;)

I do have a few goals for the next month, such as booking a videographer and a DJ. I think those are our next “biggie” items. After that I would love to create some sort of timeline for everything else, so we’re not scrambling last minute. Anyone have any suggestions for this? I’ve seen some timelines for the week of the wedding and the day of the wedding, but haven’t seen anything that say “make sure you book XYZ X months before.” Though, I know that varies wedding-to-wedding, location-to-location, so I will probably just have to come up with that on my own. :)

Countdown is on – seven months and counting!!!
