My wedding is now a short 8 months away, and planning has finally kicked into high gear. We certainly could have started earlier, but there were several other events this year that took up a lot of time and planning energy. However, once we returned from Disney, we got our butts in gear.
I started by ordering a customized Erin Condren wedding planner, which I’d had my eye on, but I hadn’t been sure I wanted make the splurge. Then, as I was ordering my 2016 life planner from the same company, I decided to just go for it. You only plan a wedding once, right?? The planner is beautiful and I’ve started taking it to our vendor meetings and keeping all the information consolidated in there.
Tonight we had a meeting with a potential DJ, and thankfully, we ended up really liking him. D and I are going to have some non-traditional music scattered about throughout the evening and we wanted to make sure the DJ would be able to get the songs we want.
The next very important thing I’ll be doing is going dress shopping. For some reason, this is what scares me the most! I’ve never been very fond of clothes shopping, and I find that I’m very picky and that it’s hard to find things that look really great on me. This could be a long day (or series of days)!
We still have so many decisions to make and so many vendors to pick out. It’s a big task, and I have to admit, it’s been a little stressful. D has had to remind me to take a step back and relax a little because this is all supposed to be fun. He’s completely right, but as the designated planner and worrier of the relationship, that can be somewhat difficult for me to do.
We’re chugging along though, and with any luck our wedding will be exactly what we planned.
Anyone else out there getting married in spring/summer of next year?
