make programs?  write a song list for dj?  songs for ceremony?  buy thank you cards?  make up a list of photos you want the photographer to take?  make up a day-of schedule so that people know when to be where and vendors know when to start things?

 

there will be a lot of little things like that as you get closer!

Is it too soon to make programs?  That and folding and assembling favor boxes are all I can think of at the moment!

We’re in a similar boat where we meet with the caterer later this month, my seamstress told me to call back in January to schedule alterations (I only need a bustle unless I lose weight), and I just can’t wrap my head around figuring out what to tell the DJ.

I don’t think it’s too soon to do programs. I started designing mine already. Some things still need to be decided (like readings and songs) but the main ‘guts’ of it is done!

We’re doing cookies from a family recipe for our favors so I’ve designed the card to go with those…. Instead of making individual placecards I’m making a seating list, so I already started the basic layout for that. We decided our menu last month so I have the menu cards ready to go. I also started some DIY decorations. I have my dress but just need the bustle put in.

I haven’t set on a baker yet for the cake (mostly because I’m not sure what I want!) and we have it down to 2 DJs… other than that I think I’m ok. Am I missing anything? There’s so much it’s hard to remember sometimes.

I’ve actually finished our programs (they are fairly simple) – think I should go ahead and print and assemble?  I worry someone will back out or insist on something weird (one person requested I list their middle initials in a certain way, different from everyone else – annoying, but I’m going with it).
