Is anyone else totally stressing? I’m trying not to but I feel like I have SO MUCH to do! Here are the main things:
finalize guest list/get # to all vendors/pay them etc
print/put together programs
print info/put together items for OOT bags
put together favors
meet with florist one more time
do parents gift
When I write it out it doesn’t seem like a lot but it feels like a ton. Deep breaths! How are you all doing?? What do your checklists look like???

Oh boy….Here’s what I have left to do before 8/22
Put together OOT bags
Follow-up with non-RSVPers
Schedule of who goes on what shuttle from hotel to wedding location (ob everyone is going to want to take the later shuttle)
Coordinate photogs with getting ready schedule of guys and girls (at different locations)
Finalize menu (location prefers this info no sooner than 2 weeks before)
Final Dress Fitting
Finish place cards/escort cards (can’t be done until after seating chart is finalized)
Write and print note to guests/itinerary for OOT bags
And…I think that’s it (???) That list was WAY longer than I anticipated. YIKES!!

I can’t believe how close it is!!!
Here is some stuff still on my to do list:
Make ceremony programs (I still need to choose a reading!!)
Assemble favors (which will double as escort cards)
Follow up with people who haven’t RSVP’d
Make OOT bags
Order BM gifts (I know what I’m getting, just need to order)
Order FG/RB gifts (I have NO idea what to get)
Get a guest book
and a billion other little things!!!

hmm sounds like we are all working on a lot of the same things! i keep crossing things off my list but it still gets longer and longer…hmm.
print and assemble ceremony programs
figure out the seating chart 🙁 arg…and then make place cards once that is done
finalize the menu and room set-up with the reception venue
assemble the OOT bags…as i stare at boxes of snacks from costco…

Trying not to stress too much (though I made the mistake of checking out the long-range weather forecast — possible rain predicted that morning — trying to to stress with that, especially since we have an outdoor wedding :-P)
Let’s see, I still have to:
– Pack to move (yeah, that’s kind of big, though I don’t have too much stuff)
– Finish writing vows
– Make thank you’s and bridesmaids gifts
– Possibly write shower thank yous, but those may just have to wait until after the wedding
– Find shoes. And earrings.
– Pack for honeymoon.
– Call honeymoon place for directions and check-in information.
– Arrange my flowers (though they’re ordered now) the day before.
– Pick up generator, chairs, etc. that day (I think I’m sending my FI to do that, though)
– Go to the courthouse for marriage license/name change stuff
– make maps to the reception from the wedding
– Get food for rehearsal dinner
– Put together final music package for our musicians.
Basically, lots of little details. Other than packing :-P.
