How are all my March brides doing? What are you currently working on? What do you have left to do?
I have to admit I haven’t been doing anything too active on the wedding. I am getting RSVP’s back and putting them into yes/no piles. That’s pretty much it LOL. OH and still waiting for my dress to come in, so a little bit anxious about that.
Still to do: Program, seating cards, table numbers, any and all signage, out of town bags, he still needs shirt/tie/shoes, gifts for the parents, ring bearer shirts and pants, under dress wear, finalize music with DJ, finalize ceremony, marriage license, kids plan, figuring out breakfast/ lunch catering for getting ready, guest book, shot list for photographer, figure out logistics for rehearsal/ getting ready/ gifts/ luggage for wedding night hotel.
OK I just suddenly inspired myself to get working!

Program – FI is working on these this weekend
Seating cards – We bought placecards yesterday. Just waiting for RSVPs.
Table numbers – Done. FI did these this week.
Any and all signage – Still have to do these.
Finalize music with DJ – We sent the lists. Meeting with the DJ at the end of next month.
Finalize ceremony – Meeting with the officiant early February.
Marriage license – We can officially apply for ours February 22.
Figuring out breakfast/ lunch catering for getting ready – What is everyone else doing for this?
Guest book – Quaker marriage contract came… and FI’s name was misspelled. Waiting for a new one. Bought pens for guests to sign yesterday.
Shot list for photographer – Sent that two weeks ago.
I’ve looked at this whole list and I STILL FEEL LIKE I’M MISSING SOMETHING. Help me, bees!

- Wedding: March 2014 - Brazil Room
I’ve got so much to do that I’m going to explode. I put my “panic” list on the “3 months left to go” thread just the other day, so I won’t bore you guys with that all over again. Even with 2 months to go, it really feels like my wedding is tomorrow and I’ve dropped the ball completely. Agh!

@mrsem2bee: I was thinking of doing panera. Something filling but still light (like we’ll all want to wear dresses after). maybe a big salad and some half sandwiches? Plus I’m fairly certain their catering has a delivery option.
@NovaGrey: Oh no! Please don’t explode lol! I’m going to read your other post now to see what’s going on

I’m slowly but surely putting our favor/escort cards together. The favor will a box with 2 french macaroons and the person’s name and table number will be on top. I can’t get or put the macaroons in until 2 days before the wedding (or else they’ll go bad), so I’m doing as much as I can to put the boxes together beforehand.
I’ve been getting RSVPs back (not nearly enough) and trying to put together the seating arrangements. I still have to get the actual seating chart from my venue, but I’ve started making lists of people that will sit together.
Just this past weekend I bought the glasses for our sand ceremony, frames for our signs, and decide on what I wanted to do for a “guest book” situation.
Not too much else to do! Final dress fitting is at the end of February, I have shoes, jewelry and all other accessories – groom has all his stuff, too!
We have our final meeting with the florist on Wednesday this week and I’m so excited for that. I can’t wait to see what he’s put together!
Other than that, I’ve just been sitting around waiting for the big day to actually get here!

@Andthepupmakes3: Still have quite a few things to do. I have my first dress fitting tomorrow, argh!
@mrsem2bee: Date twins! I also have no idea about what to do for food the day of. All I know is I will need my favourite food so I actually eat something. I’m thinking fried chicken will be the goer haha

@FirstComesLoveNZ: Fried chicken sounds awesome! I actually just told my FI that I want fried chicken for the rehearsal dinner. Although, we’re having it at the wedding too (chicken and waffles, FTW!) so maybe I shouldn’t…

@FirstComesLoveNZ: I’m so jealous of your dress fitting! I’m still sitting here waiting for mine to get here already!
