The planning continues...

So, anybody who's ever thought planning a wedding is a piece of cake is sorely mistaken. Not even planning a cake is a piece of cake, no pun intended. All of this has been crazy. But at the same time, i've had a LOT of help that i would be so lost without.
I've dreamed of planning my wedding my whole life, and never before have i ever imagined there would be so many things to think about and decide on.

  • announcements (getting pictures taken, printed, and then create the announcement itself)
  • mailing the announcements
  • Registering at stores
  • finding a dress
  • getting it ready to wear (dry-cleaned if necessary, steamed maybe... etc)
  • finding accessories. (veil, shoes, jewelry etc)
  • picking what the groom will wear
  • Finding where to get it from 
  • Making budgets
  • Coordinating with parents
  • Flowers?
  • Bridesmaids (Who, how many)
  • Groomsmen (Who, how many)
  • Music? (first dance, father/daughter dance etc)
  • CAKE
  • decorations (table, doorways, backdrop, etc)
  • Food (what to eat, what to serve, what to not have to clean up)
  • Plates, cups, napkins, serving bowls, plasticware.....
  • All the Temple aspect of everything
  • Picking where to have the receptions
  • do we have an open house? where, when, who?
  • scheduling where everything will take place
  • photographers
  • what will the wedding party wear?
  • what colors do i want to have? will i need to change them after i've already picked?
  • bridal pictures, groom pictures
  • where will we live?
  • Honeymoon?
  • How much money do we have left after all of this?
and thats barely mentioning the big things....

  1. We made it easy on ourselves and asked for gift cards instead of doing a registry and we didn't have a bridal party. It cuts out so much of the extra work. Good luck on the rest of your planning. I'm sure it will all work out and be beautiful. Can't wait to see pictures :)
