I still have to send the invites, make my programs (at a loss on how to do this!), make the rest of my centerpieces (though I have figured out what I’m doing there)., make my wishing tree, put together my favors, make my sash & headband, and figure out what I’m getting my bridesmaids/ MOH/ parents for gifts… thats the hardest!!

A little scary now that I see it all in print! lol.

We mailed our invitations today! We’re a little early I know, but I wanted the responses back before we go away this summer.


place cards

parent gifts

bridal party gifts

music list for DJ

meet with photographer about details

decide where to have my hair done and set up a trial

I’m sure there are a few more details I need to take care of, but those are the big ones!

  • Buy wedding shoes (strongly leaning towards the Nuran)


  • Buy undergarments for wedding dress


  • Have dress hem altered (train is still too long)


  • Find a DJ & pick first dance song

Everything else is done! Smile

@AllShookUp:  Do you need help with the programs?

You can print them yourself or order them from vistaprint..which I do highly reccomend..less money in the long run πŸ™‚


You decide on what you want to put in your program, and your style. It basically will have a cover page, with your name, wedding dates, sometimes the engagement photo, then opens up to the list of the wedding party and all those contributing, the officiants name, sometimes a sweet poem or verse that is special to you, then a general outline on the left of the wedding ceremony and what to expect. If yours is a ceremony and reception back to back, you can put the whole kit and caboodle. Some women do this on fans, (fo an outdoor wedding) more formal, or make it fun..its up to you! πŸ™‚ You can also have a memorial note to a recent passed relative.

  • Make his vest (he chose ripstop nylon material… ugh)
  • Finish making invitations
  • Send invitations
  • Several repairs to our ‘venue’ including painting & building some tables and chairs
  • He has to get a carribou or moose for the dinner
  • I need to pick about 5 gallons of blue berries for favors as soon as they are ripe
  • Figure out some sort of guest book type thing that I don’t hate.
  • Same thing for card box
