  • Helloooo!!



    I have to say both H2B and I have been uber organised and pretty much done everything we can do at this point in time!

    He is a Graphic Designer and doing all our stationery bits and pieces so it has been a lot easier, we even completed our welcome table sign, sign to go with the toilet basktets and our sweetie table sign yesterday, all put in the frames ready to go!

    So far we have done:



    Venue - Tithe Barn

    Given notice

    Booked photographer

    Booked Caterers, had tastings and chosen food and how the tables will look, i.e colour glasses, charger plates etc

    Bought my dress, side tiara, shoes, veil

    Bought BM dresses

    Hired suits

    Booked flowers and gone through colours and styles etc

    Bought rings

    Booked Band

    Bought all the decoration bits like table trivia, scatter crystals, bunting, pom poms

    Bought sweetie buffet

    Auntie is making the cake

    Had hair and make up trials

    Bought table plan frame and easel

    Bought post box

    Bought baskets for the confetti cones

    Bought toilet baskets and a few bits but that is a work in progress

    Sent out save the dates - invites to go out in January as it is a Thursday wedding, want to give everyone as much notice as possible



    I still need to chose 2 readings, finalise numbers and food choices, buy my underwear.



    Phew! image
  • You're all doing better than me! Although I might feel better when I put it in writing...



    I have:

    Booked church and reception venue

    Ordered dress

    Chosen bridesmaid dresses

    Booked band and string quartet

    Chosen, but not ordered, wedding rings

    Booked photographer (forgot that!)



    Gah, that's it. Although this will be a good thread to spur me into action (and help me with what else needs to be done!)
  • AmyLou, as you have most things done do you fancy doing mine;-)





    I have:

    booked venue

    booked church

    chosen dress

    think I have found underwear and shoes

    chosen bridesmaid dress ( I think, but waiting for sales!!)

    basic idea of how I want invites to look - I will be making them in the coming months - when is everyone sending them out??

    Decided guest list - still don't have guts to tell some family members who have been left off image

    sent out hotel details for those we want at the venue - eg close wedding party

    Met one photographer meeting another on Thursday and final one next week

    and I think thats all



    Oh and sent contact list to bridesmaid for hen weekend - most important!!



    Still so much to do image

    Hi, sounds like everyone is doing well!



    So far I have done:

    venue (we're having the ceremony here as well)

    given notice

    caterers (although we are tasting our menu in a few weeks so the menu might change slightly!)

    photographer

    my dress

    ordered the rings



    My aunt is a designer so we're seeing her this weekend to look at invitations - hopefully one to tick off soon!



    I still have to find bridesmaid dresses and sort the men's suits, and flowers are another big thing.



    Plus about a thousand small things I haven't thought of yet no doubt!



    good luck with the planning image

  • Bethallen73 I would love to be able to help you in any way I can! seriously PM me if you need any help - I have thoroughly enjoyed all the planning and I think we have been quite lucky in that most things have been quite easy to organise and its all just fallen into place.

    All we have left to do:

    Table plan, tho we know what it will look like

    Name places need finishing (DIY job) when we have confirmations

    Need to buy tiara and underwear

    Finish bunting (275 meters done so far)!!

    Making some other decorations



    That's it everything else is done!!!!
