  Hi, date twin! I have…a LOT left to do :-).

  • Finish addressing and wax sealing the invitations.
  • Get different postage for our invites.
  • Food and cake testing (both scheduled for next weekend)
  • Work showers this Thursday (both FI and I have one), FI’s family shower in late May/early June
  • Hair trial–scheduled for mid June
  • Makeup trial–still need to schedule this!
  • Make final payments to our vendors.
  • Finish bridesmaid gifts.
  • Work on favors…I think we’re going the DIY coaster route, as another Bee posted.
  • Design the OOT boxes, go shopping for things to put in them (don’t need to worry about this for a little while).
  • Make a trial run of these cake truffles that I saw on Pinterest, decide if I want to include them in the OOT bags.
  • Dress fittings–first one scheduled for early May.
  • Finish putting stickers on bubbles.
  • Pre-cana / NFP classes (they’re scheduled, so that helps).

This is about all I can think of right now! Thankfully, with being a teacher, I will have exactly a month off before the wedding. This was my last “off” weekend until…probably the wedding :-). It’s getting crazy, but it’s still fun!

@countrygirl62312:  I know! However, it’s also been somewhat of a curse…I keep telling myself, “Oh, you don’t need to rush now, you have a month off before the wedding!”. I’m afraid I may be overpacking that month :-).

Plus, there are items I would like to get done now (like getting things for the OOT bags), but it’s still a bit too early!

I didn’t include all the things I have to do the day before the wedding (were decorating the venue ourselves) I’m doing my own centerpieces and have to get my nails done somewhere in there too… the day before is an entirely longer list lol.

Had to take a break from the boards… 

I’ve got 40 days left. I’ve changed jobs so I have more time on my hands.

Our RSVP date was yesterday, due to our B list of guests, and since we’re having our wedding at a baseball field before a game, they need to be able to release what tickets we don’t use.

So on my list of things to do..

  • order bridesmaids makeup
  • check up on our “not rsvp’d yet” people
  • get the guys clothes, we’re waiting for the ties to come in, to match those. They aren’t wearing fancy formal wear.
  • Guest book ideas, I’m boncing between a note jar, or mad-libs. Maybe both? FI is a graphic designer so he can make the mad-libs fit into a bound book afterward, would be a cute table topper.
  • Do group B invites
  • trying to decide if we want to do programs or just a chalkboard that we can write on both sides.
  • once my veil comes in, hair and makeup trials
  • marriage license
  • Wedding songs (just a few since we aren’t having a dancing part)
  • Get the day-of buisness card thing done (basically, phone numbers of everyone, map of  the location, and schedule)

Can you bee’s think of anything else? If you just spit a few things out, maybe I’ll remember something!

  • Food tasting at reception

  • Order favors and assemble
  • Select readings and readers for ceremony

  • Rent DJ equipment
  • Meet with DJ and MC
  • Write speeches
  • Buy Fiancee’s wedding gift
  • My makeup and hair trial
  • Make apt. for manicure and pedicure
  • Ceremony programs

FI needs to buy suit (trip planned by best man for that – in 2 weeks)

My dress needs to freaking arrive (it’s being remade)

We need to finalize the ceremony, which our pastor is preparing this week

I need to figure out sash and jewelry, but need the dress to do that 🙁

Order corsages and bouts, and roses for my bouquet (which I’ll make the day of, along with heirloom flowers that grow in my neighborhood)

Buy materials for OOT guest bags

Order favors (for both of those we’re waiting until rsvps shape up a bit more)

Figure out attendant gifts

…probably a lot more that I’m blacking out right now!
