So here we are. 278 days away from saying "I do"
and I have to say that I'm pretty pleased with all the progress that
we've made. We have the venue, the photographer, the dress, I've picked out
the bridesmaids dress, we have the save the dates just about ready to go, the
hotel that we will be staying at for the wedding, I've started to work on decorations,
and we have the florist and our day-of planner. whew!
It's not so overwhelming if you take one thing at a time. I had a mini meltdown
in October because it was so intense. Once the venue was booked my body
decided to go back to normal, thankfully. But everything has been going
smoothly so far. We're trying to follow the basic timeline for booking things, just to
give us some structure.
The best advice that I can give for the initial planning is to make or find a
timeline that works for you and to take it one thing at a time, or have a list of
small things that you want to accomplish for the week. The knot has a really good timeline
on their website, and most bridal magazines have them too.
It's also good to check out what other people are doing for their weddings
my favorite bridal blogs are:
