  • Wedding: September 2010

At this point, even “4 months to go” is making me cringe! And looking at my “To do” list on TheKnot is going to give me a seizure. Anyway, off the top of my head, here’s what we still have to get done:

  • Figure out a fitting schedule and seamstress for my dress – it’s here, but when it came the first time, the bridal shop had ordered the wrong size
  • Finalize our flowers – I’m not a big flower person, but my florist keeps asking me about my “floral vision”. Seriously, I don’t care. Just do a freakin’ arrangement.
  • Decide on what we want for linens, which are idiotically expensive for being pieces of fabric
  • Go for my hair and makeup trial, which will involve figuring out if I want to wear some sort of hair accessory and buying/making it
  • Get my fiance to choose groomsmen attire
  • Figure out all of the logistics for our rehearsal dinner
  • Go over the ceremony with our officiant
  • Write my vows
  • Finalize our cake flavors
  • Finish our invitations, get them printed and addressed, and send them out
  • Make sure my bridesmaids have chosen their dresses – I told them knee-length, in purple, and they’re still working on it
  • Get my fiance to pick out a wedding band
  • Engrave the wedding bands
  • Find shoes
  • Maybe try to arrange some sort of “engagement” session with our photographer. It comes with the package, but it seems silly to call them engagement pics when they’re occurring way closer to the wedding than when we got engaged. Maybe “photography rehearsal” is more like it.
  • Figure out stuff like escort cards, table numbers, guest book, card box, etc

I’m sure there’s more, but that list alone is going to cause me to have some sort of anxiety attack.
