Chicago bride here. These are my recommendations:

1. Hair- Robert Jeffrey in Lakeview or Andersonville if you are on the north side. Their people travel, or you can be hosted there.

2. See above. 

3. No help there. Contact your venue to see if they can make recommendations.

4. Contact Northwestern, DePaul, or Loyola’s music department. If you have a higher budget, PM me and I’ll pass on the contact for a friend’s string quartet. She’s a pro musician though.

5. What do you need done? 

6. David’s has a pretty big and affordable selection. But if you dont like David’s, check or go in to any other bridal store. 

7. See above.

8. Victoria Secret’s.

9. We bought suits instead. Much easier. 

10. We got ours from sears online. They had an excellent selection of dresses. Any clothing retailer should have some selections. You can also try local children’s stores.

11. Where are you getting married at? You should do it somewhere near your venue.

12. Your MOH plans that.

13. DO NOT PLAN A SHOWER FOR YOURSELF. That’s a money grab.

14. Michael’s for pretty much all of that stuff. Or Etsy for unique gifts and art supplies. 

15. You need to send your STD like now or they are pretty useless. Everything else, you just have to do unless you hire someone to do it for you. 

You have time (maybe not for you STD because those should be sent 4-6 months in advance). Just do it. You can buy pretty much everything online in one go. But you do need to get your guys fitted for tuxes now if that’s where you’re going. Try Men’s Warehouse. It’s the David’s Bridal of tux rentals. They will always have stock.

@HourThyme:  I didn’t have my first shower until two months before my wedding. I had four altogether and the last one was a week before my wedding. I wouldn’t stress that part. 

For the rest of it, take a day to go out and get all the rest of your attire you need. Take another day to go out and buy all the little odds and ends you need. We used The Knot checklist. Stuck to it pretty firmly but then there were a bunch of things not checked off about two weeks before the wedding. It’ll all be taken care of, don’t worry. Things work out!! 🙂
