Is it wrong to feel very organised, I have a pin board in the kitchen that all my ideas are on( apart from the dress obviously) I've booked most the large things, i.e., venu, DJ, cars, photographer colours, table themes, save the date cards. Looked at invites. Table plans are done. But am I missing anything? Getting married in August 19. My only concern is I've done the paper work for bonds of marriage at the church, given it to the vicar and not heard from him , should I of? What happens next? I'm just don't no.

No this is good! We get married a year tomorrow (eeeeek!) and so far we have booked venue and paid deposit, booked photographer and paid deposit, got the registrar organised and ringing up next week to give notice (can only do that a year or under before your date) we have hired suits (paid in full) got our flowers already (artificial) picked up our rings today and i have got my dress! We will already be at venue night before so transport isnt needed so we have booked rooms too, im now looking at shoes to hopefully get them before my dress is back so i can see to alterations etc we hve also booked a photobooth and paid deposit and got our cake sorted too, its good to be organised! Im usually a leave it till last minute person but so glad we aren’t like that with this as i would panic and faff too much haha its good to take ur time looking around etc but its a nicer feeling knowing something has been done and ticked off the list!

If the bonds are similar to doing the Banns for a marriage ( giving notice) thats not usually done so early.. We are getting married August 2018, & did ours a few weeks ago.. Maybe the vicar is holding them til its time... Have you paid for that.. The Banns we did were £35 each..

Me and my fiancé are getting married August 19 too and we’ve got all main things booked and deposits paid and also have all the smaller items such as table decorations planned etc, I’d rather be organised and have to time to buy everything and plan it properly than worry mid next year that nothing is done and I’ve left it too late 🙂

Gosh I need to get a wriggle on it seems ..
I'm August 2019 but pretty much just have the venue, church prep underway and music band so far. And had a dress appointment yesterday but haven't said yes yet 😂

I'm Aug 19 too and we have venue, registrar, photo booth, dj, accommodation sorted. I'm making my own save the dates, invites, table plan, favour and flowers myself. ( I make cards and invites as my job) I've ordered some different flowers to pick the ones I like the best. I feel like I'm super organised and worrying it's been a bit too easy x

Honestly it’s actually nice to hear someone else being so organised. I’ve had so much stick from people who think I’ve done things too early! Getting married June 2019 and got engaged May 2017 and had pretty much everything booked before Christmas. Even got my dress and the bridesmaids dresses. Only things we have left to do are table favours, invitations and other stationary, suits and honeymoon. Also getting married in a church and we have our banns read on 3 consecutive Sundays 3 months before the day. I’ve been emailing everyone back and forth with every question imaginable just so I’m kept in the loop.

How are your table plans done when you haven't even sent out invites yet?? Sounds like you're on the ball and you have loooads of time to make sure everything's sorted, relax and enjoy the planning :) doesn't sound like you're missing anything and I wouldn't chase the vicar just yet, its over a year in advance they probably have weddings this year to deal with and just haven't needed to contact you just yet...give it till maybe August this year and then get in touch :)

Wow you are organised! Table plan done too... be careful you don’t do too much too early because new things come out and you’ll be stuck with last years designs etc. I’d wait a little bit now you don’t want to take the excitement away from yourself towards the end. X

ive done the table plans just with people i want to invite. obviously subject to change. ive also just learnt how to do my own buttonholes, they are so expensive from a florist, and its so easy too, ive ordered the stuff needed from ebay. so i'll keep you posted as to how it goes. as for the vicar i rang him yesterday, i couldn't any longer, he said he'll be in touch the beginning of next year as he doesnt know how much it will cost yet. i'm doing all my favours myself too so that will keep me busy for a while. i've tried on wedding dresses, but haven't said yes yet. sounds like i'm not the only one organized. well done everyone. keep us updated.

I've already been booted off Pintrest once for pinning too much stuff! So far we've booked venue for June 19, it comes with a DJ, photographer and forest. I've meet the photographer in February and spoken to the florest who said she'll contact me in the summer to go through what we want more I've started growing my table centre pieces (herbs and lavender), bought my dress, made and posted save the date cards and started designing my invitations. We've decided on our cake (just need to book it), paid honeymoon deposits
