Do: Get the wine for our guest book. (using 4 bottles of wine with custom labels for our anniversaries and having guests sign the bottle)

Delegate: Paying off the rest of the money. Giving a spreadsheet to my mother of what is left to pay and how much and letting her handle that all on her own.

Drop: Favors. I was going to make coasters using tiles, but no longer care enough to do it. The whole set of tiles (like 200-ish) only cost me $20 so I’ll find another use for them in my house eventually lol

Do: Ski lift-ticket escort cards.  I have all the supplies (sticker-paper and little wire lift-ticket hangers) but I’ve been putting it off until I get more RSVPs.  I’m going to just start making them for the people I know are coming, and leave a blank space to fill in the table numbers later on.

 

Delegate: Table numbers with photos of us at each age.  I’m going to delegate this to my FMIL.

 

Drop: I’m thinking of dropping menus on the tables.  People can be surprised.

Do: sketch decor ideas for girls night wine and cheese assembling party. I have 400 feathers to sort out for all the decor (instead of flowers) and I need to do sketches of the different items as a guide for the girls

Delegate: Transcribing and transposing music. I am a musician, but have been out of music theory practice for awhile. I only had recordings of the music for the ceremony and our first dance waltz, but we are having live music because our friends are so talented and amazing. Problem, is I don’t have time or ability to actually turn the recordings into sheet music. My amazing BM who is a perfessional performer/singer/songwriter has so kindly taken on this task and saved me from a massive freak out. WHEW!

Drop: Making my own cupcakes. I am pretty good baker, and I was going to bake 100 cupcakes for the wedding to save money, but I just won an award at school of $500 that I was not expecting. To ensure I don’t have a meltdown or a panic attack from anxiety I am putting that money towards my cupcakes. It will cover it no problem. YES!

Ooo I love this!

Do: Write the ceremony–kinda important 🙂

Delegate: ceremony music selection can be handled by my FI. We chose musicians together but I don’t really care about the specific songs that are played.

Drop: I was going to do place cards in addition to escort cards but I’m thinking now that they aren’t necessary.

Love this thread!!!

Do it: Contact photographer, DJ, caterer, write ceremony and send to celebrant
Delegate: The last of the RSVPs – it’s driving me nuts, FH can chase them up
Drop it: The whole family drama thing. I’m just not going to care. I don’t need the stress, I’m not going to let it get to us on OUR day.
