Now that September is just around the corner meaning we will have been engaged a year and, more importantly, will be getting married in a year, I'm starting to feel like I really should get organised! The only thing we have done is pay off a small chunk of the hefty venue bill. Important, but pretty boring.
When I start thinking about everything that needs to be done my head feels ever so slightly like it's going to explode, so I thought it would be a good idea to break it down into bite-sized chunks so here's are the first few things on my wedding to-do list:
- Plan and arrange wedding dress shopping. Although I have many ideas about colours, decorations and the general atmosphere that I'd like for our wedding day, the dress is something I have no real idea about yet... And I realise that the tone of the day should really revolve around the style of the dress so I need to get trying on some white dresses... Eek! I'm the most indecisive person so I need to plan around the likelihood that this decision will take a few separate shopping trips!
- Plan wedding photography and pre-wedding shoot. We always knew that Darren's cousin Anna would be the photographer for our special day as we know she's really good and should feel comfortable with her :) We're going to meet up with her in the next week or so to talk through what we want & whatnot so I look forward to that!
- Save the dates! Possibly related to the above with organising a pre-wedding snap shoot as I'm not sure whether to go down the photographic save the date route or what we're going to do yet, but I guess we need to think about this pretty soon so everyone can make sure they're free for the wedding of the century.. Hah ;)
So there are a lot of decisions for me to make! And for the girl who couldn't make a decision if her life depended on it, this is going to be... interesting!
