The weddding is at Noon on October 2nd!
-photographer (we may have to forego a videographer, it’s not in the budget)
-invitations are mailed (stupid rsvp’s)
-food choices are dependent on stupid rsvp’s (I didn’t know the concept was SO complicated)
-guest book idea is in progress
-paper & raffia for wedding programs is purchased
-ribbon and vellum for diy Unity Candle is purchased
-website is up to date with accommodation/travel info (it’s pretty much a destination wedding for everyone but my parents & brother (they live in NC)
Sadly, we don’t have an officiant yet. This is not okay, I know. I was waiting to see if my aunt rsvp’d yes and I was going to ask her to do it, since she’s a minister. I’m going to call her up this week and ask.

Wow, sounds like you are right on track!
In terms of stuff that I have planned for two months out, here are some ideas:
-wording for ceremony program
-timeline for the day of
-have you had your hair makeup trials yet?
-make sure all the paper elements for your reception are in place (e.g. menus, favour labels, any other signage you need, such as for your bathroom baskets if you’re having them)
-pulling together an “emergency kit” for the day of
-buying a card for your FH if you plan to exchange them
-start thinking about your vows if you plan to write your own
-make sure you have your something borrowed, blue etc. ready if you plan to follow that tradition
Sounds like you’re in a really good place though and don’t have too much to worry about other than last minute logisitcs. Good luck with the rest of your planning!

*Outline of the reception for the DJ and a list of song you want (and don’t want) played
*Gifts for the wedding party, if you’re doing that
*List of delegated duties for the wedding party, like putting on the boutonnieres or making sure everything gets from the ceremony to the reception
*OOT bags or welcome note for the hotel rooms
