I’m stressing lol.

Here is my list:

Get Event Insurance. Buy liquor, straws, mixers & garnish. Buy earrings. Pick up my dress. Create an ipod playlist. Create list of must-have photos. Create day-of timeline with my venue. Finalize make-up & hair time schedules. Give caterer final head count & set-up instructions. Set up official ceremony rehearsal (not rehearsal dinner) with my small wedding party & our officiant. Prepare thank-you toast to our guests & write in thank-you cards to be given the day of the wedding (to venue, bridal party, officiant, parents, groom). Scope out day-of locations to take pictures before the ceremony. Give day-of timeline to bridal party & parents.

I have quite a bit, it seems.

@Kat:  sigh that sounds about like what I have left 🙁 lol 

 

@MiraJo:  I have so so so much left to do. The most worrisome is how I am going to get my dress to the actual location! But we are also waiting on our table runners 🙂

@MiraJo: & @HeatherRose83:  Show me your lists! 🙂 I want to me sure I haven’t forgotten anything. Actually, something else dawned on me yesterday; I need to somehow reserve the first 2 rows of seats on my families side & my FI’s side for immediate family & close relatives. I don’t think that the chairs can have anything hanging from them, like a sign, so I think I’m actually going to be doing name cards in each seat!
