Oh god, I just realized I have SO much to do!!! I started DIY stuff a few weeks ago, but took a week off. So, basically I did stuff for a weekend and half a week!
Finish Bridesmaid or Best Man fabric tote bags – 4 more to go
Canning: few jams, apple chutney
Start making crepe paper flowers (doing ALL flowers this way…I’m crazy, yes, yes I know)
Work on vows (writing own)
Start downloading music for ipod reception
Work on wording for invitations…sh*t….I probably need to send those out soon!
Write ceremony / timeline for the day
I don’t even want to think of what else I have to do! Oh, and I work full time and am trying to go to the gym every day after work. FREAK OUT!!! Holy cow. I’ll get it all done. I’m good with organizing/time budgeting.

My vow renewal is Aug 6, and I have soooo much left to do. Here goes (for the month of May):
Make invitations, get hubbys butt to tuxedo place, start alterations on my dress, order my shoes, make programs (figure out how program will go), start going to gym (my dress is already a tight fit, dont want to put on any more “happy” weight), meet with caterer, look for candles for centerpiece.
My goal is to be done with everything by July 6th. One month to be stress free. We shall see…good luck ladies!

Looks like a few of us still have the prgrammes to do! I am just trying to get started on them- I know I want a booklet but printing, designing etc- a whole other ball game! I cant find a nice template anywhere!
@PrairieGirl: my list is much the same as yours, especially the booking appointments, ceremony and music and the programmes and menu’s. I have a venue meeting next week and I have a HUGE list of things to ask about/do whilst there!
