I'm getting married September 8. Close to August I find I don't have a lot of close September dates. All vendors are secured. Blocked hotel rooms and reservations for after party and brunch. Getting ready to order my dress and invites this week. Next month will be squaring away some bridesmaid details, transportation and groom's attire. Have gifts ready to order from etsy. Looking good!

Hi we are getting married August 5th. We have quite a bit left to do but none of the "big ticket" items. So far this month we picked up my wedding dress and set up the profile for the guys at men's warehouse. We plan on checking out and possibly buying our wedding bands and start pricing florists.

Girls-I got a stemless wine tumbler with a lid with their names on it. Jewelry. And then each of them I got a personalized gift. Horse sun catcher, hiking gear for one. My MOH is a shakeo coach so I got her some work out tanks geared towards that. My other is my RF sponsor/cousin in law so I got her RF embroidered hat. All those goodies in a monogrammed bag for them. I didn't want to do generic gifts for them.

Mothers-keepsake jewelry boxes with quotes. Fathers-embroidered handkerchiefs.

FH is charge of the guys

August 18th, 2018 bride right here. I'm so excited. We have a lot done so far but still feel like is coming down to stressing if I will get everything done in time. DJ will be my uncle. Photography is picked out and will be paid in the next month. Invites and RSVPs were ordered last weekend. We will be meeting with a possibly caterer soon. My wedding dress is fully paid for besides the alternates. Blocked off rooms at a hotel for Friday and Saturday night. Officiant's deposit is paid still owe him a little bit. Wedding website is almost all done.

Hi all,
I'm getting married August 24 I have secured all vendors and pretty much just buying misc. Items like gifts and send off items . Etsy has really been my go to when it comes to gifts and guest book. I still have to secure our transportation for exit . We need to buy favors for the guests. I realized you have to bring alot the day of the wedding and it's a good idea to make a list to not forget anything even if you have a coordinator.

I still feel so far behind, BUT, I got my dress ordered, my venue booked, caterer almost booked, bridesmaids bouquets and centerpieces pretty much done. Still need an officiant, invites sent out, florist(just for my bouquet), hotel rooms blocked and pay/book our honeymoon! Oh, and pick our songs... and cake/cupcakes... still quite a bit to do. But I’ve got this!

August 31st!

All the vendors are booked and we’re just making payments at this point (DJ, venue, florist, cake, photographer). Dress is bought but still need to do alterations. I’m going to start that in March I think. We have an appointment to get bridesmaid dresses on March 3rd, but I already have the color picked - my girls can wear whatever they want as long as it’s the same color.

Im stressing about BM gifts now. I bought the usual “prop pics” stuff but my girls are all so different and independent so they usually buy what they want. Lol. I thought about getting us massages in the hotel the day of.

August 17, 2018 here! I think I have all the main stuff taken care of; venue/catering, DJ,
photographer, dress ordered, HMUA booked, bridesmaids dress picked out(waiting on the last bridesmaid to go in and get sized so they can place the order by Saturday- my 6 month mark!), photobooth booked, save the dates will be here this week to also hopefully get sent out by Saturday, part of the bridesmaids gifts ordered, in the process of finalizing hotel room blocks.
We have appts to pick out the groomsmen tuxes or suits and registering at Bed Bath and Beyond this Saturday!

main stuff left: flowers, decor, and invites! And we have our catering tasting first weekend of March to finalize menu choices!

Anyone think of stuff I may be forgetting?!
