6 Months To Go!

6 Months To Go!

Six months from today, on September 21, I will be getting married!

S + T

I can’t believe we are already half way through the planning process.

Here’s what we have done so far:

  • Picked the venue
  • Tony found our photographer
  • Engagement photos
  • Picked a caterer
  • Bought my wedding dress
  • Finished our guest list
  • Sent Save-the-Dates
  • Booked the room block
  • Cake tasting + decided the look of our cake
  • Decided on favors
  • Picked our centerpieces
  • Tony picked the band
  • Tony booked our honeymoon
  • Hired a day of coordinator

Here’s what we’re currently working on:

  • Finding a Rabbi (talking with one next Wednesday)
  • Suits (we are going to Men’s Warehouse on Sunday)
  • Bridesmaid dress (we know the color and I have date set to go to David’s Bridal)
  • Tony’s working on our song list
  • Finalizing the rentals
  • Wedding bands (going shopping next weekend)
  • Hair (I need to make sure my stylist is available)
  • Meeting with our florist on April 20
  • Register for gifts on April 7
  • Wedding food tasting (will probably happen in April)

Here’s what we still need to do:

  • Bridesmaid gifts
  • Groomsmen gifts
  • Parents gifts
  • Flower girl dress
  • Order invitations
  • Buy guestbook
  • Buy alcohol
  • Decide on wedding shoes + accessories
  • Find someone to do alterations on bridal gown
  • Tony and his parents plan the rehearsal dinner
  • Out of town gift bags
  • Book wedding-night hotel room
  • Ceremony programs
  • Decide on escort cards
  • Find nail salon
  • Buy a wedding veil

So far I have really been enjoying the planning process. I feel like we have the majority of the big stuff out of the way. I want to make sure I don’t feel rushed the last couple of weeks before our wedding day so I want to get everything done early on.

I hate having unmade decisions and there really isn’t a wrong way to decide. Wedding planning has become super easy and fun when I started to trust my gut feeling and not look back. It feels great to make a big decision and move on to the next task without seconding guessing myself.

Any planning advice for a bride that’s 6 months out? 🙂

  1. Have date nights! It’s so easy to be all-wedding-all-the-time, but it’s worth it to take a night off and remember why you’re getting married. 🙂

  2. We planned our wedding in 6 months (we got engaged in October, married in April), so you’re making excellent progress! Just be nice to your finance! Apparently, toward the end of wedding planning, I started getting a little, er, stressed, and I was complaining to my now-husband about how he wasn’t helping enough or didn’t seem excited enough … I don’t remember exactly. But he won’t let me forget that when he did start suggesting ideas, I kept shooting them down. So. Yeah. It’s his wedding too 🙂

    • I’ll definitely need to be reminded of this as it gets closer to the wedding. Tony’s been extremely helpful so far. 🙂

    • However, the timely service of a car locksmith helps to salvage
      one from the situation. Some locksmiths even specialize only in certain models of cars.

      Do your research beforehand, and if possible, get word of mouth recommendations
      on good locksmiths. These locksmiths will be educated on all
      aspects of putting in a lock, such as drilling the lock location, setting up security systems linked to the lock, and installing theft-prevention measures.
      Professional car security providers like locksmith in Miami
      are very handy during times of emergency and distress.
