#WeddingBelle: My 2nd Month's Checklist!

I'm excited to share with you all of the things I've checked off of my wedding planning list! I'm feeling so organized and ahead of the game. Plus, I'm lucky to have some awesome supporters and helpers in all of this! Here's what I've checked off by Month 2 of planning:

Month 1:

  • Host an engagement party
  • Pick a date & time
  • Set a budget
  • Book the church and officiant
  • Book the reception venue
  • Create a guest list
  • Block out hotel rooms

Month 2:
  • Take engagement photos (Shoutout to Jimmy's incredibly talented 15 year old cousin for this!)
  • Choose & ask the bridal party (This includes bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls and ring bearers!)
  • Pick my color palette
  • Buy my wedding dress!!!! (Check out my 10 pieces of advice for wedding dress shopping.)
  • Book the photographer
  • Book the cake maker (My amazing family friend!)
  • Book the DJ (More awesomely talented family friends!)
  • Book the honeymoon (We're headed to Orlando, babyyy!!!!)
  • Book hair and makeup
  • Order and mail Save the Dates (The earlier, the better on this one.)
  • Create our wedding website (I made a custom site using The Knot's free website templates. It was easy and allows me to share all important information with my guests.)

I feel awesome about the place I'm in right now! Thanks again to all of my friends and family who have helped out and who will be a part of our special day. 

Stay tuned for next month's list!
