We were at his parents house for Easter and his aunt kept asking me about wedding plans and updates.  She then started talking about how she is watching his parent’s dog for them for the wedding(everyone has to travel to our wedding).  When I got home I thought more about it and then realized that she likely thinks she isn’t invited!!

Since we are having such a small wedding I personally called everyone on my side of the guest list and told them about it instead of sending a save the date.  I told Fiance he was to do the same and assumed he did. He forgot to call his aunt!!! I felt so bad cause here I was gushing about the wedding, assuming she just couldn’t go cause of medical issues(she has been in/out of the hospital lately) and she was thinking that we were not gonna invite her.  Thankfully we clarified this with his mom and her so that she at least knows she is certainly gonna be invited.

He is in charge of:

* Coordinating with his Best Man and Out-Of-Town friends.

* Getting a hair cut.

* Writing his vows.

* Getting his suit tailored to accomodate pre-wedding weight loss/gain.

* Getting his shoes shined.

* Getting fitted for his wedding band.

he researched the photographers – that’s done and booked.   He also took care of booking the DJ

I think the only thing left is suits for the guys. . (that he’s doing on his own)

The groom’s list mainly involved ensuring his whole family was squared away on their travel plans, going to the ring store with me to pick out wedding bands, getting his groomsmen squared away on their clothing rentals (though it was me that ended up having to chase this down in the end, haha), and now writing his vows. Keeping his list short has turned out to be one of the better ideas I’ve ever had 🙂

Here’s his list:

Pick out a suit (done).  Buy it (done).

Get his groomsmen gifts (done).

Get my wedding band (done).

Fill out his half of our couple’s questionnaire for our officiant (done).

Talk to his parents about the Rehearsal Dinner (halfway done – we’ve established they’re paying for it – yay! – but haven’t talked budget details).

Write his vows (not even close to started).

Help me brainstorm first dance ideas (this changes daily).

Get a haircut before the wedding (still have some time).

Show up (hopefully this one won’t be too tough for him Wink).

Oh! And don’t get too drunk before the ceremony!  Lol.  The guys are hanging out at the venue all day, relaxing and playing cornhole.  So, I’m a little concerned about the potential for drunkenness.  Oh well…


Looking at the list, I realize my Fiance hasn’t done so bad.  But I also don’t think I’ve really given him much to do.  I’m too much of a control freak for that anyway. 🙂

My Fiance is in charge with dealing with the band/DJ, getting his side of the families addresses, getting all his guys to the tux place, getting their gifts (which he has already asked me to help with) and showing up the day of.. If he offers to help with anything else, that’s great.. other than that.. I’d just rather take care of it myself. So far he is doing pretty good…
