T – 11 Months: Less Than a Year (Creative Title Wanted)

We’re down to 11 months until I’m no longer legally single. We’re starting to get the wedding planning done. Ever since I hit the one-year mark, this is what I’ve done!

  • I have a matron of honor!
    • I asked her after my first dress shopping trip. Now we have one groomsman spot and one matron of honor spot secured
  • I said yes to the dress!
    • My dress is a Maggie Sottero dress in the Sakura style.
    • I also ordered my veil as well
  • I also have a best man!
    • Franklin’s brother will be the best man
  • We did our engagement photoshoot!

Here’s what needs to be done between now and the 10-months out mark:

  • Find a florist
  • Um, something on the list below this one?

And here’s what else needs to be done between now and the end of August when I return to school for the fall semester:

  • Choose save the date design
    • Will do that after we get our engagement photos back
  • Get the rest of the addresses from the people Franklin and I worked with
    • We are inviting people we worked with who were on the same project Franklin and I worked on since Franklin and I would not have met if it wasn’t for this project
      • Since there are people who are on the project now who weren’t on the project when Franklin started, we are only inviting the people who were on the project when Franklin started. Don’t worry, I have made sure to privately ask each person for their address so there wouldn’t be any “Why am I not invited?” drama
  • Think about cake
  • Send our venue coordinator a list of questions we have for her to answer (this may be done 9 months out now)
  • Update our address book to add names and addresses as we go

336 days until the wedding as of when this was posted. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get ready for my childhood friend’s birthday party. I want her as one of my bridesmaids.
