Organize the music for the wedding liturgy. By far the most important part, in my book, and the task I’m most looking forward to.

Do a bit of decorating on the flower girl baskets. Bought some nice ones, but they could use a few extra touches.

Make a hairpiece to wear at the reception, and make corsages/boutonnieres out of the excess materials. (All the kids helping out with the wedding will be getting silk corsages/bouts)

Finish a chapter of my dissertation.

Hi girls, I’m actually the 28th but close enough right?

Most of the to-dos I have left have to do with confirming timing/wedding day logistics & schedule with vendors (photography, etc.)

I also have to meet with the DJ one more time to give him our first dance song, photos for our montage, etc.

Other than that stuff I still need a card box (hopefully DIY), to print menus & programs and to figure out the seating chart (worst part, I think!).. Oh and we haven’t ordered our favors yet even though we know what we’re going to get.

Hope that helps – I’ve been making lists upon lists paranoid I’m forgetting something, too. Good luck!

Yayyyyy it’s getting so close, I can’t wait.

My to do list consits of dropping off ribbon and cake topper for the cake.  Finish tying ribbon on our favors (nightmare job!), Get final head counts to venue and caterer.  Organize final payments to vendors and figure out tips.  Decide how to fold our cloth napkins.  Purchase the items for the OOT bags and stuff the bags.  Wrap/prepare gifts for wedding party and parents.  Figure out how to get everything to the venue…. 🙂

I feel like I have everything to do!

Figure out the centerpieces, order the cake, make the bouquets, pretty much everything for the ceremony, put together favors, get a must-play/do-not-play list together, get a must photograph list together, get my dress altered, schedule someone coming out to do hair in the morning, do the programs…I think my brain will explode! 

And of course, FI is like, “See, it’s almost here, and we’ve got almost everything done!”

I feel like my list is never ending. I need to get my wedding license, go to my 4th and 5th dress fitting (my alterationist keeps messing up my dress so I have a ton of fittings), make my programs, make my seating chart, pick out grooms gifts for FI and mother/son song and garter song, must have photos, met with all vendors one more time to go over final details, remeet with florist because they messed up flower order, get our rings engraved, find a purse still, find a person to do my make-up. I feel like I have more to do then time to do it.

It hit me on Monday while I was a bridesmaid at another wedding that the next time I go to a wedding I will be the Bride! Hit me like a ton of bricks that we are getting married 3 weeks from Saturday, so now I am in major freak out mode.
