HisBrownEyedGirl: I just made a post on this haha – we have less time than you we JUST got our final RSVPs in (a few people were late) so now we can finalize numbers with the caterer, buy our alcohol, and book our rentals. We still have a lot of final meetings with vendors. This will actually be good to write out my final to-do list!
We need to:
Talk to the DJ about the timeline and when he has to announce speeches etc, and we need to give him our music list. We also need to talk to him about the sound for the outdoor ceremony, and our venue never got back to us about the sound system so I need to hound them.
Meet with our bakers and pay our final deposit & wrap everything up.
Talk to the photographer about final timeline
Give final headcount to caterer, have caterer talk with rental company to figure out what we need, figure out logistics of getting alcohol to caterer before wedding (will do that week) remind caterer to make signs for buffet
Give final direction to my friend who will be setting up centerpieces etc<br /><br />Buy alcohol and soda<br /><br />Find something to put our rings in!
Find something to put our candy favors in
Finish escort cards and centerpieces
Print out photos that we will be placing around venue
Find outdoor toys/bubbles
Find jewelry – actually all I need now is a bracelet
Find something blue and something borrowed
Order flowers for bouquets (blooms by the box)
Practice hair a few more times (I’m doing my own)
Figure out how many smaller tables we need (they come with venue) to put guest book, escort cards, cupcakes etc. Logistically not sure where we are putting all this stuff haha
Final dress fittings-one or two
Send info to family about rehearsal, send family timelines for speeches
Finish ceremony and vows, decide on which readings we want friends to do
Get presents for
remember to bring check for DJ to be paid day-of
Find card box for our sweetheart table
Pay final deposits to venue, photog, caterer, baker
Get marriage license
God this sounds like a lot and I’m sure I’m missing stuff!
