We are 47 days away!!! How is everyone else doing? What’s on your to-do-list for this week???
We have to order our lot of flowers, write our vows, create a day-of timeline, purchase some DIY items (ribbons for bouquets, garland for arbor, toys and activities for kid’s table, etc.), and a few other small projects. I also have to start my ‘beauty regime’…..get a facial, eyebrow shaping, hair cut, etc.
I feel better seeing where other May brides are at so please share your lists :0)

i had a very organized to do list… but somehow it has gone out the window. i know i have a million things to finish, but can’t seem to get organized. we are sitting down with the venue coordinator to go through the day-of timeline soon… i think that will help me to get back on track.

Yikes! I have a lot done, but still a ton I feel like I haven’t even started. Not to mention that nagging fear I’m totally forgetting something…

haha I know, we have hardly any time left! I have a lot to do, but have gotten a lot done in March!
I still need to reserve the rentals, tables, linens and china. the reception site is renting me chairs though.
most of what’s left though are the small details..
oh, and my invites were backordered, so they were supposed to be sent out today, and I don’t even have the paper for them! I have some of the cardstock, but not the pocket folds we ordered, so we have to put them together too! eeek!!

We are moving 3 weeks before the wedding so wish us luck!
