@futuremrskirkman: Not long to go! You’ll get it all done, time sure will fly though. Good luck with the rest of your planning.

  • Wedding: June 2015

Hey! I’m getting married on the 29th, and I’m having my own “oh shit” moment.

I’ve made most of my major decisions already, but have a lot of little details to figure out. We’ve reserved a date with our caterer, but still have no idea how much of what to order, and we haven’t ordered paper plates, napkins, etc. yet. I have some general decorating concepts, but haven’t made anything yet. I know what we want to do for booze, but have yet to figure out exact quantities or specific plans.

Things that I have figured out:

-Dress

-Venue

-Music (having a string quartet and two other bands play! Got them all squared away.)

-Desserts

-Bridesmaid/Groomsman gear

-We just met with our officiant a week ago!

-Photographer

-Rings

-Invitations (These are all done! Just waiting till the middle of Jan to send them out so they don’t get mixed in with xmas cards.)

My date is March 8th and I’ve only recently realized that my wedding is less than 3 months away! Ahhh! However, I don’t think there’s too much left to do. Here’s what I have done:

-Dress bought and has come in already (first fitting is next week)

-Wedding bands bought, but still waiting for them to come in.

-Bridesmaids dresses bought

-shoes and accessories bought

-groom’s suit is bought, but he still needs a shirt and shoes

-invitations are sent!

-venue, caterer, and cake are all set

-i’m in the process of making my wedding favors

-programs are designed, but not printed

-officiant is set

-music is 99% set (DJ for reception, string trio for ceremony, but we still need to choose the important songs)

-vows are written

-flowers are set

-photographer is set

 

Is there anything I’m completely forgetting about??

@leahthehun:  what about hair/makeup? Bridal party gifts? Transportation?  You seem to have it all pretty well done!

I *think* all I have left is the actual tasting with caterer (they’ve had deposit for months), order the bulk flowers from sams, buy the alcohol (waiting for the RSVP count) doing my hair and make trial, finishing up some DIY projects and putting the outer stamps on invites and placing them in the mail! ready for it all to be ooooover! Lol

I’m almost completely done. I have to:

-Finish embossing the programs and assemble them

– Order a guest book

– Book bartenders and buy alcohol

– Pay the florist, DJ, & Officiant (but these are already booked)- January

– Pay the Hair/makeup team, balance on honeymoon- February

 

Literally everything else is done. I am probably forgetting a million things but its coming up so close!

Oh my God. I don’t think I can even write a list, there’s so many little things! Most things are booked or started, but lots to confirm and make final decisions on. My dress came in and I tried it on this week. Veil is wrong, but a new one will come in time thankfully. Just in the middle of DIY’ing invites right now but will hopefully get them out after this weekend!
