Just under a year!

Shla, on 14/September/2018 at 07:47 Posted in Plan a wedding
We hit the 365 mark yesterday! We have nothing done but our rings on layaway and have to go pay the deposit for the hall this week. I figured I'd be stressing by this point but I'm taking a super chill attitude. I'll make a list of stuff I need to do quickly soon.

How far are you guys out from yours? What's your vision? What do you have left to do?

    You're getting so close! Now is the time when things start fast approaching. We're 316 days to our wedding and there's still some big items that need to be accomplished like buy a dress, find an officiant, get our rings, and plenty of other things lol.

    Having the big stuff done is always helpful. Haha. This is my second time around so I'm just kinda "meh" about the planning. Not really a huge deal to me. Our venue is pretty much an all in one so all we need is the photographer really and we're just hiring my sister in laws mom. Lol.

    I'm a little over a year away from my wedding date! I've got most of the essentials such as the dress, venues, and photographer. We still have all of the other little details to do but that's why we like having a long engagement!

    Its crazy how quick that time will fly by, it feels like just yesterday we were at the one year mark and now we are at 181 days. I still have a ton to do but I have taken a brake from planning. I have not chose a DJ, makeup artist or dessert yet. I feel like we have the big things though, I have my dress and so do all my girls, we have a photographer, locations, caterer, and invitations are done. I also feel we are done choosing decorations. I have been relaxed the entire way and once you make a few decisions it flys by!

    I am 321 days away - as soon as we got engaged I started planning right away to get the big stuff done - venue, church, photographer, my dress (still haven't quite decided yet) but during those couple of weeks I was a little stressed with lists and making appointments and calls and whatnot to figure a few things out but now all of the "big things" are taken care of and I can relax and enjoy being engaged and will be stress free for the next few months until the invitations go out - and then stress free again for a bit before crunch time right before the wedding to get the decorations together! that worked for me but may not work for you, my only advice is to enjoy the process it should be fun planning your wedding!

    I remember being this far out and being so chill and relaxed. I am 34 days out and still working on RSVP's! I had my ceremony dress fitting Thursday and will have my reception dress fitting tomorrow (both the first one) then Sunday is our meeting with the DJ to finalize details. When you are this close I find it's alot of teeny tiny details like shoes, favors, alterations, gifts for bridemaids, finalizing designs for things like our cake, cake topper, getting my seating chart oh I could go on and on! I'm just nervous that I will forget something and regret it. Enjoy the time while it lasts your wedding will sneak up quick lol

    Aww, that's awesome! We are doing Friday the 13th, too! It's going to be fun. We put our rings on layaway and booked our venue. Spent the day at home yesterday with our daughter. She was home from school because she is sick so no real celebrations for us lol.

    I try to keep a chill attitude about planning things too, the stress isn't worth it to me. We are actually 400 days away from the wedding!

    I did a lot this week: I booked our DJ and our honeymoon cruise!! We already have the venue, photographer, my dress, hair, and officiant. I have to meet with the officiant and DJ in November when I'm in my hometown next.

    My vision is a tropical wedding that is inside an atrium with live tropical plants. It's attached to a hotel with banquet halls for the reception. Our main colours are teal and purple and using peacock feathers in our decor.

    Next steps are to get our engagement photos done next month and use a photo from that for our save the date. Also working on finalising wedding party attire and groom attire (i.e. what they will be wearing). The next vendors we have to look at are florists and cake bakers!

    I agree with you. I feel very chill and calm about planning. I think I am more excited than anything. We have our venue, photographer, DJ, hair and makeup booked already. Our engagement pictures are done. And once those are all edited and sent to me I can order our save the dates. Hoping for Black Friday/ Cyber Monday deals as we are ordering from Vista Print.
    I love planning and am far too organized! Can’t wait to hit that one year out date!

    How exciting!! I'm waiting on my 365 days till too - I've still got 385 days till the big day and 20 days until I am at the 1 year mark!

    My vision is a rustic chic vibe with bonfires but a classy ceremony on a dock with our venue being all wooden with large tables but magnificent chandeliers hanging

    So far I have the venue, food, alcohol, social, and officiant set up. (Of course the social is ongoing as I need to acquire social prizes for my March 29th social - anyone wanna come?? lol)

    I only stress about getting things done when I remember to Otherwise I feel like I have the absolutely necessary things already (venue and officiant).
