Wedding Planning: 7-8 Months Out

February 15, 2017

Happy Wednesday, everyone! It’s time for the second Wedding Wednesday post where I will be sharing how my wedding planning is going. Is it just me or did the last month go by extremely fast since I did the first post? I feel like I should’ve gotten more done!

Anyways, here is what I have gotten done since my last post (as you see, some are of my “complete by end of January” things are not done yet- oops).

Newly Completed:

Save the dates// Completely assembled except for addresses (still working out that guest list and collecting :/).
Florist// Booked and flowers are chosen! We are going with E’s florals in Solon.
Bridesmaids dresses// Picked and sent link out to buy!
Guestbook// I splurged and bought a guestbook from Peachwik and I am so in love, it is a canvas all of our guest will write on and then we can display it in our house!
Decor//I have some decor purchased which you can see in my post from last week.
Bridal Shower Booked: I actually WON a bridal shower venue at Little Lights Events in West Branch. I am so excited because it is the cutest place and I got it for free 🙂
Miguel’s Tuxedo// We actually bought this in January but I forgot to include it in last month’s post. We found a super good deal at Men’s Warehouse!

Rest of February To Do

-Find and book a videographer// I need a cheap and good videographer! Suggestions please!
-Find and book a cake baker// I think I know what I have in mind, just need to schedule tastings.
-Finalize the alcohol menu// Using Bread Garden Market in Iowa City for bar services.
-Work on Guest List and Addresses// Seriously why is this so hard??
-Starting to think about where I want my Bachelorette Party//What is fun to do??

And when I say these need to be done by the end of February, I mean it 🙂 I feel super behind so I need to step it up.
