Planning, planning

The wedding plans have been coming along in leaps and bounds lately, with only three months to go until the big day. In case you were wondering, that is 100 days, or 2402 hours, or 144258 minutes. But hey, who’s counting.

We have sorted most of the big things now: venue, caterer, menu, band, celebrant, order of ceremony, guest list, photographer. Yesterday we bought the flowergirl and bridesmaids dresses for Bronwen, Grace and Megan. Next week I’ll go to a dressmaker to begin figuring out my dress.

Soon we will organise and send out the invitations. We are thinking of waiting until after Xmas to send these (even though this breaks the 3-month in advance rule).

An amazing little computer program called Evernote has been helping me along with the planning. It’s a great tool. I can save all the information we send out and receive into it, and then view it anywhere, anytime – from the web, or my home computer, or my iPad, or my iPhone.

So the to-do list, all the information from the venue, caterer etc., the dress ideas, the vows-in-progress, the budget, the guest list … everything really … is stored in Evernote. And either of us can update it from anywhere and see any changes that have been made by the other person. Brilliant!

    Wow! Such an organised cookie.
    And I love that you are totally not Bridezilla – you got the girls dresses orgnaised first and now will plan yours around theirs 🙂
