I’ve been engaged for a year and a half at this point, but we only really started planning this past February. I did a ton of planning during my last semester of law school and so now all of the “big” things are booked and out of the way. I feel like I should be doing more – that there’s something I’m missing – but I don’t know what it is.
I have the venue, officiant, DJ, florist, my dress, the wedding bands, the BM dresses, the tuxes, the BM gifts, the GM gifts, my dress, my shoes, my hair pieces/veil, my friend is in the process of designing the invitations… I mean, we’re not sure we’ll do a Rehearsal dinner, and we’re waiting to go on our real honeymoon – but the minimoon is completely booked.
What am I missing?! I know wedding planning is like another full-time job… but I come home, and can’t think of anything to do!
I need creative help!

– I didn’t see photographer, that’s a big one.
Other things to think about:
Reserve rooms for OOT guests
-OOT gift bags
-Flower girl dresses
-Shower thank you notes and gifts
-Centerpieces decor: table numbers, place cards

ooh, thanks Charm Bracelet. I do have the photographer already! We do have to do the table numbers and place-careds.. but we live in CT and are doing different NYC neighborhoods for table names. So we’re taking pictures in NYC next time we go down for a visit (our parents live there).

caterer/bartenders? or does your venue provide for this?
thank you cards for the million and one beautiful gifts you will recieve–have you registered yet?
Are you renting anything for the wedding that the venue doesn’t provide? (like linens or china…or chairs etc)

Do you have ceremony music planned? What about your ceremony? Are you doing favors?
Guestbook? Flip flop basket? Bathroom baskets..I think they are really a nice touch. Gifts for your bridal party?

@pinkchampage wedding night lingerie I don’t have! hehe. .but I’m waiting until I lose a little bit of weight (hopefully) before I purchase some. 🙂 🙂
@floridabeach – did all that. registered, and my friend is designing our invitations and the thank you cards.
@ kazoochair – I could definitely work on a bathroom basket. the gifts for the bridal party are all done. I also need a guestbook! thanks!
Keep the ideas coming! This is really helpful!

A videographer? A Day of Coordinator? Hair and make up person?
Wow, you are SO much more prepared than I was this far out!!

@sjbee – we’re not doing a videographer, the venue has a DOC adn I have the makeup- just now looking at hair people. — the only reason why I’m this prepared is because I didn’t want to do any work during my last semester of law school! hehe
I did just get the centerpieces for the cocktail hour in today – I just have to go get vases for them, which I’ll do this week I suppose.
I’m just so not creative – I want to do more, and I can’t think of anything!
