    Here is my list!

    1. Start washing mason jars
    2. Start washing and delabeling Wine bottles
    3. Meet with cake baker! (one week from today yay!)
    4. Start sending out save the dates (or handing them out when I see people in person)
    5. Continue looking for a small hoop at a good price.
    6. Send in deposit and sign contract for new photographer!
    7. Ask Fi’s Uncle if he will officiate (I hope he says yes)
    8. Convince Fi that we don’t need a aisle runner (I will so end up tripping on it)
    9. Figure out is we want a ring bearer. (if yes ask the little cutie!)

    • Cake tasting (tomorrow) and one other meeting with a baker to decide
    • Just mailed out my Save the Dates today
    • JUST BOOKED OUR HONEYMOON–Woohoo!!! Going to Puerto Rico & a 7 day Carribean Cruise
    • Plan the ceremony with my Aunt (who is officiating)
    • Plan the DJ/event agenda with my grandfather who is DJing–yep, he does it for a living 🙂
    • Complete a trial run of DIY flowers by ordering from Sam’s Club & making bouquets
    • Decide on BM dress style–so we can keep an eye out for sales/deals

    Luckily, the major things like venue, photographer, dress and theme/decorations have been decided and purchased. But there is still a little ways to go. Some days though, I wish my wedding was next month, so it would happen already!

    We have to…

    • send out save the dates
    • work on invitation design
    • buy some “sample” table number holders to experiment with painting

    tbh I’m going to be less than ambitious this month; work’s busy and of course the holidays are upon us!!

    I think I may have mentioned elsewhere that December will probably be a lost cause for me as far as planning goes, due to work and the move.  However, once again, finding a florist is still on the list.  Maybe if I hope hard enough, the time will free up and I can make it happen…?

    I have like, one thing on my list:

    1. Figure out flowers.

    I can’t decide if I want to hire a florist or not.  They just seem so darn expensive!  But will I really want to DIY?  Do I trust fiftyflowers.com?  Can I half DIY?  So confusing.  Maybe I’ll start a WB post about it… But the goal is to either pick a florist, or not.  Sigh.

    Ideally, I’d also do the following:

    2. Get my MOH’s dress.

    3. Register for gifts.

    4. Order Save the Date Cards.

    5. Book the band!

    6. Finalize guest list, like for real.

    Bonus: Figure out pre-marital classes

    I am super crazy with grad school this month, plus the holidays with our two huge families so I am keeping it simple. 

    Send out Christmas cards/save the dates

    Collect bottles and trays for centerpieces (still going!)

    Try to find fabric for the flower girl dresses my mom is making

    I don’t really have a December list. I am going to try to relax and focus on the Holidays. But that alone is making me feel pretty stressed out. We might not even decorate this year since we go to my parents in NJ for Christmas. We will see. Also might look into a photobooth this month.

    Well I didn’t really make it through my November list, so it’s turned into a December list 😉

    – design and order Save the Date postcards to be sent out early January

    – collect all addresses for STDs

    – reserve hotel room blocks

    – talk to our bridal party (my sister, his brother and sister) about being in the wedding and what to wear

    – enjoy our 3 week pre-moon in Nicaragua!!!!  Scuba, surfing, climbing volcanoes, vegging on the beach, oh my!

    I feel like the same things have been on my monthly to-do list for the past 4 months…

    • Trying on dresses tomorrow and Sunday (hopefully making a FINAL DECISION.)
    • Discuss catering more, get one more quote, then just decide already and get that over with
    • Do a little more DJ research, hopefully meet with a couple, and maybe decide?  I’m not terribly concerned yet, but it’d be nice to have that box checked off
    • Make save the dates and send them out.  
    • Call the nearby hotels about reserving blocks
    • Contact the baker we want
    • Paint some stuff (tiered thing, canvas for our names) because I am desperate to do crafts!

    Honestly, we have already done 2 big things: scheduled engagement photos (finally!) and decided on a “thematic element” to carry through everything (chevron!  I know, it’s super trendy and getting old, but we both love it, so I am THRILLED to have that decided so I can actually think about designing paper products.)  So I’m starting to feel better about everything getting done…

    So a little update on my list, we did decorate! FI suggested we break out the stuff last weekebd because he knows I love Christmas and all the decorations. And I guess my list just added ordering a bridal headband from etsy and rehearsal dinner dress! Both just came in the mail today and I LOVE them! I also will be going to get all of the bridal party and parents gifts we bought engraved next weekend plus getting my ring sized. And the photobooth is still a big ? Anyone else going to have one? I am so undecided….
