Okay. It’s official I am in panic mode. We are doing a small backyard ceremony in 37 days with a reception in at private room at a fine dining restaurant.

Both our our attire, including accessories
Flowers have been ordered
Invites have gone out (even though they were last minute i had the design ready to go 6 months ago)
wedding chuppah we’ll get the materials this weekend, I’m making 1000 paper cranes to hang off of it
Wedding Cake we are ordering today
Chair rentals I have to still get
I am working on our playlist
BUT is there anything else I am missing?

You sound like you’re in pretty good shape! All the basics are in place, and it sounds like anything else would just be any special touches you want to add.

Centerpieces? Favors? Back up photo plan in case of rain? (It rained on our day)

Will you need your own sound system, either for the ceremony or at the restaurant?
Have you written your ceremony and/or vows?
Do you plan on having someone do your hair and/or makeup?

centerpieces will be flowers, I have collected probably 30-50 different size shape glass jars over the past year haha and I finally get to use them =)
favors I still don’t know about that yet… my friends say since there’s going to be under 20 guest pretty much immediate family only theres not point in favors. I mean they can take the flowers and such if they’d like but they’re all either staying at our house or in hotels so I doubt they would. As for rain we might get a tent for the ceremony and pictures will be out in the country side.. or in the downtown core so I’m not too worried about rain, I think it could add depth to pictures with the crazy looking clouds (*knock on wood*)

@mightywombat: We have our own sound system, Ceremony schedule, readings and vows are written and printed out on the ceremony programs that i made, hair and makeup, well I’m pretty confident in my ability to do my own makeup.. hair however I will be doing trials over the next few weeks I just wants my hair curled and down and a bit of a poof on top. So I HOPE that its not too difficult. Im sure one of my sisters could help me.

I would skip favors in your place too. I only had them because dad has a tree nursery and we gave our little oak trees.
