Doesn't seem to be many brides who are getting married on 11th May 2013.
If you're one of them then how far are you with your planning?
I'm getting married on the 11th May 2013!
So far have sorted venue, caterer, photographer and think I've found my dress. We have designed our save the dates but haven't sent them out yet.
Feel like I've had a bit of a lull recently as been so busy with other weddings and hen dos. Should probably start getting more organised!
Where are you getting married?
Yay! We have just received our save a date cards today and love them so they are ready to go out soon.
Got my dress and shoes, booked venue and registrar, caterer and dj comes with venue so that's sorted. Paid a deposit for my bouquet, entertainment and photographer and had engagement shoot back in May.
I'm getting married near Oldham
I've kinda run out of things to do at the moment
Im getting married on the 10th May! In cyprus so we chose a Friday as most of us are fying out on a Sunday & we didnt want our guests to fly home the day after the wedding
Ive got venue, reception, entertainment (in Cyprus) & venue for party back home sorted. Booked photographer, hair, make up for Cyprus & put deposit down my bouquet- from Etsy, my profile pic is my bouquet. Just bought my ring too. Still got to get my dress, grooms outfit plus bridesmaid dresses. Our Cyprus invites went out in March as we wanted everyone to have loads of time to sort their holidays. We are going to send out our at home invites after Christmas xx
Aww Cyprus will be lovely yeah we've still got bridesmaid dresses and mens suits to sort and decide on a cake xx
Wow you are both much further ahead than me. Have been in a world of other people's hen dos and weddings so need to get back on with planning my own again!
Hi I'm getting married on 11th May 2013 near Skipton.
We have sorted the venue and church so far and I have found my dress. We will hoepfully be sorting out photographer and cars over the weekend.
but lots still to do!!
Hi, we've set the date for 11th May 2013 x Church, venue, cars, photographer booked!, Wedding dress ordered, bridesmaids dresses bought!! I've bought all the stuff to do my own invites, soon to start making them ready for posting in Jan!! Just need to confirm chair covers and flowers and finally the cake!! Pretty sure I've forgotten something, just keep ticking things off lists!! Been to 3 weddings in the last year so had plenty of ideas!!
Joining the 11th May club! Venue, registrar, wedding dress, save the dates, photographer all sorted. Invites being designed, groom is on the case with his suits and band, hen and stags being planned. Florists being done at the moment. Dying to sort bridesmaid dresses but can't because one is about to give birth any day!
Woo hoo welcome to the club we all sound very organised
well my h2b took the lads to try on suits and be measured. He said that it made it all seem very real with them all standing together in their suits I won't know what they are wearing until the big day as he wants to keep it a surprise like my dress
I am a May 11th Bride. So far have booked the venue, caterer, photographer, florist, ordered my dress, found bridesmaid dresses (just need to order) designed invites, booked a band and dJ, have also given notice. Think that is all for now. Still lots to do but been having a bit of a break from the planning as all the big bits are now done. Time is coming round really quickly though can't believe it is less than 8 months. Doesn't feel like that long ago we were on the year to go countdown.
We got our bridesmaid dresses last weekend which I was glad about and off on Thursday for our menu tasting as we can't get our invitations orderd until we decide on the menu.
We hop get our invitations ready for before Christmas so we can send them out when we are ready in the new year.
All we've really got left to do now is look at wedding rings and order a cake which is easy enough to do as it's one of M&S's wedding cakes so won't need to sort it yet
how's everyone planning going? It's getting close we've just been sorting out the little bits like the table numbers, etc. I bought some things to decorate the tables too and am going to take a trip to hobbycraft in the week to see what other bits I can get.
i'm an 11th May bride too!! invites being printed and will be ready to go in the next couple of weeks!! woohoo!
yay our invitations should be ready at the beginning of next week and our rsvp dat is 1st March so not long to go! Bought the favours for the girls last night so just the men to sort out and the children when we know how many children there will be
I'm a May 11th bride aswell! We only got engaged last month so lots to do hehe! Fortunately my H2B had booked my dream wedding venue as a surprise so at least that is done
Congratulations! What a nice h2b I got engaged February 12th 2010!
Now i'm terrified! We're getting married on the 11th May but only started planning easrlier this month! Lots to do and i'm sure we've missed something. What have people done so far? x
Ok, i thinki've pretty much done all of those things except for gve notice - i'm not sure i even know what this means!!
ha ha we went to the registry office and had to go in separately and they asked us:
Think that's it. I thought it would be scary but it was really a chat. We then had to go back about 4 weeks later to pick up the papers and then took them to the registry office in the district we are getting married in as this is different to where we live.
Don't leave it too late if you're getting married at a venue or they may not have anyone available
We're getting married in church so i suppose (i.e hope!) we dont have to do this!
Possibly not then
I know the first thing i did this morning was inform everyone we had got to double figures lol. It'll fly by now!
