Wedding Planning Update!

It's 10 months to my wedding in a couple of days, and I thought it would be good to take a minute to give you all an update on how planning is going!

Let me update you on where I am in my wedding planning!  Am I on track or WAY behind? from

So far we've:

  • chosen the date (September 11th, 2016 - the 2 year anniversary of our first date!);
  • chosen the wedding party (we're keeping it simple with just a maid of honour and a best man);
  • created a budget (that we're seriously hoping to stick to!);
  • booked the venue (a beautiful farm and forest in Rockwood, Ontario);
  • decided on a preliminary menu with the caterer (100% vegan and mouth-watering);
  • drafted the guest list (currently sitting at around 50, and we're hoping to keep it below 70), and;
  • poured over Pinterest inspiration for hours on end!

What we have left to do in 2015:

  • insure my engagement ring;
  • choose an officiant;
  • create our wedding website;
  • make our save the dates;
  • book musicians;
  • finalize the guest list, and;
  • start dress shopping!

I was starting to feel as though we hadn't done anything and were getting so behind.  It's great to see the done and to-do list together to realize that we're actually pretty on track!  We have almost 2 months to get those 7 items checked off, and other than choosing the dress (which I know is going to take a LONG time... how can I make a snap judgement on my wedding dress??) everything should be pretty easy to get done in a couple days of work.  

If you're planning your wedding and not sure where to start, check out my wedding planning timeline here.  It's a great guideline to follow so that nothing is left too last minute!

And for those of you who don't follow me on instagram (but why aren't you?  I thought we were friends!) I'll include a couple shots of our venue!
