150 days til our wedding...
and here is where we are at...

Secured a photographer
All bridesmaids have bought dresses
4 Bridesmaids have bought their shoes! [only one left - if you find any purple flats send them my way!]

Had initial catering meeting
Meet with our friend Ian who is going to be our Day Of Coordinator and help me with planning and decided on decor and centerpieces
Bought my wedding dress!
Bought my veil!
Scheduled hair/make-up for the day of the wedding

We need to:
Buy/Find "supplies" for centerpieces
Make decisions surrounding flowers [Ian and I also might do the flowers ourself]
Finalize timeline
Finalize menu
Finalize wedding cake
Buy and decide on shoes for me
Buy DJ's shoes
Decide on table linens

Get an alcohol permit for the venue
Meet with our liquor distributor
Book the band
Meet with our photographer

Create and print invitations [DJ has started designing them already!]
Mail invitations
Book our room at the B&B

My goals for this month are to complete these tasks:
Meet with photographer
Book the band
Create invitations
Book our room at the B&B
Start finding stuff for the centerpieces [more info on this to come!]

DJ is charge of:
Band
Emailing his groomsmen about attire & travel
Alcohol permit/liquor distributor

I'm feeling pretty good at the 5 month mark... we clearly have a lot to do but I'm happy with where we are [especially now that I have my wedding dress]... and as I keep saying, we're ALREADY married so this really is just a celebration... it will be fine [unless DJ gets drunk and can't keep his eyes open during pictures, I swear I will KILL YOU DANNY].

Also, a lot of friends have booked their rooms at B&Bs and a few have purchased airfare so I'm feeling great about that, the early bird catches the deal!

We don't have major plans for the next three weekends so I'm hoping we can knock a few things off the list then...

Get excited for more updates as we go!

Wow girl you have things under control! Have you looked at target for purple flats? I feel like they have a million. I have a pair of purple suede ones I bought there. Although that was last year.

Can't wait to see your invites!
