Ok ladies, what’s on your May agenda?
Send out invites
Book DJ and figure out playlist
Meet with Photographer (first and last time since she is in MN and we are in TX)
Hair trial (trip home to MN from TX)
And I might be crazy, but I have started to think I want to change up my dress…I want a corset back now and mine zips. Think I have time?! YIKES!!!

You have tons of time to change the back. Just keep your dress near and don’t send it off to Timbuctoo:-)

Does it take long to make it a corset back?

Oh yea, left the cake off the list. Crap. Still have to do the cake. 🙁
Finalize the ceremony with the FIL
Figure out the favors (maybe)??
2 bridal showers. It’s going to be a long week back home.
Not to mention Mother’s Day and hubs’ birthday.

Depends on the tailor or seamstress- our tailor usually has a three to four week return on complicated things… he’s local, which increases accountability. I’d definitely want to know who is changing my dress like that… they will have to remove the zipper, install the grommets, choose the lacings and finish the inside boning to make it comfy. Start shopping a tailor now- I think you have plenty of time if you find someone good.

I have to do everything on my checklist for March, April & May! It’s mostly small things, but I can’t wait for school to be done so I can really do wedding planning!

-book caterer – discuss menu and rental options
-book tent and dance floor rental (and other rentals if not through caterer)
-discuss dress alterations with seamstress
-start looking for wedding rings
-start making wedding music playlists
-talk with florist about specifics
-book day of hairdresser
I feel like I should already have a caterer and rental plan all set, but procrastination got the better of me… now the pressure is on!
