Monday, December 20


Days, that is. 200 days until our wedding! When we first got engaged, there were 800-something days until the wedding, and now we are already down to 200, so trust me, this is a big deal.

So today seems like a good time to examine what we have done already and what still needs to be done. And I'm sure the second list is going to be wayyy longer... yikes.

Yikes! Should my list really be this long?

Okay, so here it is:


- ceremony venue
- reception venue (almost!)
- photographer / videographer
- engagement photos
- bridal party
- dress (yay!)
- save the dates (almost... come on, twine!)

Still to do:

- sign the catering contract
- decide on suit vs. tux for the guys
- transportation
- reserve hotel block
- flowers & decor (have ideas but nothing's done)
- book honeymoon (totally D's job)
- find a dj
- register
- invitations (and all paper goods)
- aaaand.... everything else! haha

So yah, definitely still lots to do! I can't even remember what there is to do, there is so much of it. I think I need to sign up for one of those wedding websites that hound you with reminder emails telling you everything that needs to be done on a daily basis. Definitely would be helpful.

Where do you stand with the planning process? Lots left to do? July brides, am I in big trouble?


  1. Yay for being at 200!! My wedding isn't until November, so I can't really tell you if you're behind or good to go. I'm sure everything will work out and be fabulous, don't get too stressed over the list!

  2. Hi Catherine,
    I am writing a book called "So...How Did You Meet Anyway?" It is a collection of people's "how we met" stories.
    I have posted the stories which have been sent in on;
    So...How Did You Meet Anyway?
    I am always shopping for stories and I would like to add yours. Please check out the site, and if you would like to contribute your "how we met" story contact me at;
    If I am writing to you a second time, it's only because I really want your story:)
    Happy Holidays and...congratulations!
