    Hi Rachel, another June 23 bride here.


    The only other things i have booked on top of your list is hair & make up & transport.
    Have also purchased some items to go on our Mr & Mrs Table like a card/gift basket & a guest signing poster. X

    I feel so bored now the planning is over! We only really have grooms/groomsmen suits, bridesmaids and flower girl dresses (I know what we want just waiting to buy at a suitable time for them all), and booking transport left.


    What about favours will you be having those? Something to think about / organise if so. I’ve been on an Etsy spree recently finding bits for the two childrens boxes (activity packs, bubbles etc etc)

    Same same we don’t need transportation as it’s all in one place and staying the night before need to book them but waiting for summer to book that as it’s another expense Smiley smile
    We’re not having favours we’re doing a charity donation in my partners father name is he sadly won’t be there on the big day in my memory
    Ooo that’s a good idea for things to keep little people busy ..Where you thinking of getting your bridesmaid/ flower girls dresses from ? Xx

    We are a February '23 wedding and just booked the Venue and meeting with the church in a couple of weeks!! Almost opposite of you ladies 😮 I have become obsessed with hitched planning articles and all my Internet history is dresses, flowers, cakes and decoration ideas 🤣 maybe I'm too chilled about this whole thing.... or maybe I need to be more like you and get booking- which now we have the reception venue booked we can do. At least you can relax for a bit now all the big items are ticked off the list. X

    Aww that’s lovely making the charity donation in place of favours. Yes we are only having my partners niece and nephew and no other children but wanted to make them a pack to entertain them for a while whilst there’s speeches etc!


    We are thinking of buying the bridesmaid dresses from rewritten the online store, also like TH&TH. Then for the flower girl I have found some lovely ones on Etsy! But will wait until nearer the time so we can get her sizing accurate haha xx

    I'm in a similar situation! We're shopping around a bit for centrepieces (which you might be able to do if you don't go for flowers) and debating buying wedding party gifts as long as they aren't body size dependant in case this changes, I've also been designing our invites on Canva and tinkering about with our order of the day Smiley smile

    Congratulations on your wedding, and you’ve already done so much!
    General decor and signage? I’ve seen some lovely ideas on Pinterest and going to attempt to have a go at making some myself - although I’m not too sure how well it will go.

    I am also a June 2023 bride. I'm in the same situation, I have pretty much done everything and have booked everything I need to. I went dress shopping last Saturday and found the dress, its been ordered and will arrive in March next year.

    This month we are meeting with our florist to pick out flowers and our baker to do a cake tasting and then next month we are meeting the vicar at our church. After that I'm not sure I have much left to do until I send out the invites.

    I have found somewhere on etsy to get my signage for the day, but I think its too early to get all that yet.
