Happy Wedding Wednesday! We are almost a year out from the wedding and I am so excited because we have finally started to get some important things checked off of our to do list. So today I wanted to share with y’all a wedding planning update of where we are in the process. I have been keeping up with our to do list on TheKnot.com. They have an app so you can keep up with it even on your phone and check things off as you go. There are a ton of to do lists in every wedding magazine and all over pinterest but honestly that’s a little overwhelming so I am just sticking with The Knot.
What We Have Done
The first and most important item we have checked off the list is, we booked out ceremony and venue space!
I have started dress shopping and found one I really like. I’m not sure if it’s the one quite yet though.
Picked our groomsmen and bridesmaids – now we just gotta ask them!
We have chosen our DJ and photographer
Picked our colors/theme.
Chose our florist.
What We Still Need To Do
We have our menu and cake tastings scheduled for August!
Schedule our engagement shoot.
Decide on a videographer.
Design and send Save the Dates and invitations.
We still need to register for gifts – any suggestions of where to and what to register for would be appreciated!
Book the hotel block and where we will stay the first night we are married.
Plan the honeymoon! This is the one to do I am the most excited for.
Choose bridesmaid dresses and tuxes for the groomsmen.
Find an officiant – this one if stressing me out the most because I am not exactly sure how to find a good one. If you have any recommendations please let me know!
Find ceremony musicians.
Get the wedding bands – as in rings.
Figure out transportation.
So as you can tell there is so much more that we need to do and we have barely scratched the surface. I am sure I have also left some stuff off the list but luckily we have plenty of time. I’ll keep sharing monthly updates with you guys through Wedding Wednesday so if you have any questions just let me know!
