O.M.G. Today is exactly four months until my wedding day TOO. Ahhh.
Things I must do still:
Hire our videographer (he is teamed up with our photog) who has our date on hold … we keep forgetting but he is technically holding our date
Finalize Invitations (they should go out by August, right?)
Order Aisle Runner (they said order by 8-12 wks. of wedding date)
Get Ring Bearer and Flower Girl attire
Figure out Ring Pillow situation … do I want a *ring bear* or ring pillow?
Decide/Hire Ceremony & Cocktail Hour music
Order Favors … already picked them out – Godiva Celebration Cakes
Meet with Chef who’s doing our wedding meal at the hotel to go over the meal served
- The only thing my dad requested is to handle the food … lol. He loves eating.
Still have to choose between 2 florists I’ve been meeting with
- Come to a decision on types of chairs, table linens, place settings
- Decide what I want cocktail hour to be like
- Choose flowers & centerpieces for cocktail hour and reception – bouquets
Still have to help mom pick out her dress
I need shoes, moh (sister) needs shoes
Still must order my custom veil this week
Buy fur wrap to go over my dress
Hire mu artist (having my trial on Saturday)
Groom, Best man and Ring Bearer pocket squares
I still have to schedule ceremony too … oh gosh
Need to buy Grooms Wedding Ring
I don’t actually get my dress until September, so thats when I will do my fittings etc. I just had my first "Mock Invite" viewing with our invitation artist … she will do a 2nd mock invite and we’ll solidify our designs- she will do everything "paper" (escort cards, menus etc.) for our wedding.
*I found a woman who will custom make a bear for me to be used as a "ring pillow" – she could use the fabric from my moms wedding dress and dads tux or it could be fur and become a keepsake – of course I’ll replace the bear with a gift for the little boy! Lol.
I have done:
Hired Wedding Planner
Booked reception venue – they provide catered dinner from their chef
Booked ceremony + priest
Ordered/ paid deposit on dress thats being custom made
Ordered MOH (sister) custom dress
Booked our main Band + 2nd foreign band
Ok. I don’t feel like I have that much done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Am I on track or what? LOL.
We chose to not have SaveTheDates … so that’s not on the list.
