I know!! I am so excited! What do I have left to do?? Ha! A ton of stuff- favors, programs, I need to figure out if I am going to make overlays for the tables, figure out napkins, figure out missing responses, pick music, purchase wedding party gifts, figure out jewelry… What about you??

Woot!  30 days to go!! Still feel like I have a ton to do!  Today was the deadline for our rsvps…so starting next week I will start hunting people down.  We have been working on ceremony music, we need to send in a couple of deposits, get pictures together for slide show (our videographer is making it for us, yay!), random paper things (table #s, escort cards, programs), meet with florist, meet with coordinator, and I am sure there are other things I’m not thinking of right now.  I am so exicited to just relax (yeah, right) and enjoy our day!

Pretty much unreal, isn’t it?

We’re pacing ourselves, but there is a list that remains. We need to make our ceremony programs and our table numbers, and tie up loose ends on a few other DIY projects. In fact the majority of our to-do list could be described as tying up loose ends on things that have been ongoing for a while! For example, finally sucking it up and deciding which of our long list of amazing ceremony readings will make the cut, and which of our (already designated, thank goodness) ceremony readers will read which one. I sent about a million page email to our caterer a few days ago updating her on all the details, so there’s working with her to continue hammering out all those things, including exactly what time we’ll cut the cake etc. We need to get our must-play list to the DJ, and will probably need to burn him a CD because a lot of our music taste is on the indie side, so probably won’t be found in their 60,000+ song database. I need to get the courage together to take a pair of scissors and (wince) cut into my great-grandmother’s lace wedding dress to section off a piece of lace to wrap around my bouquet stem (I of course have my mother’s and grandmother’s permission – my grandmother was ecstatic actually).  We need to design and order our guestbook, using photos from our engagement photo session and a bunch of quotes about love (mainly courtesy of Mrs. Cheese). I need to get a basket for the ceremony programs, or ask someone to hand them out.

There are other things. I’m so excited.

EEK!

 

I still have to print menus, make programs, finalize music, buy a flower girl basket, buy gifts for the FG and RB, make toilettry baskets for the bathrooms, and a couple other things.

However, I will not be working for 2 weeks leading up to the wedding so I am counting on that time to get it all done.

 

YIPPEE!

Flowers!  I still haven’t made arrangements for or even a decision about our personal flowers. (bouquets/bouts)

Other than that it’s a lot of little stuff which I’m steadily banging out.  Today’s my last dayof school (I’m a teacher too) but I have to work camp next week then there’s a couple weeks of free time until the big day!  I’m starting  to REALLY get excited now.  Good luck everyone!!!!

We applied for the license today and got everyone’s garments altered plus I had my second fiting.  I pick up everything next Thursday and we leave for the shore the next day!  It’s coming so quickly, I have to get all the wedding stuff packed up for the trip, finish signs and stuff and clean the house.

We’re in the single digits! Holy cow! We applied for our marriage license last week. I think I found it much more exciting than FI did. Today, I finished shopping for the wedding party and wrapped gifts. 

Now if I could just finish all the thank you notes for the showers and gifts we have already received. Blah…
