Wedding Planning Update #1

With just a little over a year away from our wedding, I thought it would be fun to provide an update on where Les and I are planning-wise! My sister Kelly (also my maid of honor) is getting married in just five short weeks (eeks!!), so she, my mom, and I have of course been focusing on her September wedding. But after Les and I got engaged in February, he and I did book some of the larger components of our wedding, particularly concerning vendors we didn't want to lose out on (like our photographer and videographer), and vendors whose current prices we could lock-in before they increased next year (like our caterer). So with that said, here's my running checklist so far of what we have secured and what we have left to do! I've linked to more details on a few of the pieces we've finalized. If I'm forgetting something, please let me know!! My sister's wedding is the first for my family and I, so we're all newbies at this. And if you have any vendors to recommend in the Boston/North Shore area, I'd LOVE to hear about them! Thanks for checking in. :)
