Pretty much everything you listed, except I’m not getting my fiance no gift. I’M his gift!!!

I am making my own invitations (and guestbook) so that is my priority now. And I guess we have to finish the guest list too!

Truthfully, we are really taking it easy and not letting things stress us out.  I ordered my dress at the beginning of this month.  We finalized our guest list, are almost done working out the timing details and we have been designing our invitations.  FI has been out with his best man/brother to look at tuxs and have since made a decision so it’s just a matter of booking them now.

I’m working on booking our DJ and will be visiting 2 florists tomorrow to make a decision.  Our engagement photo shoot will be in May.  I’ve contacted a bakery for our wedding favours but was disappointed and will have to find another.

We found what we thought was the perfect wedding band for FI, and were soooo close to buying it….. but the salesman was a complete jerk and we had to walk away.  Thankfully, this particular jeweller has a couple locations, so we’ll be trying another.

I’ve been hunting for shoes for a while now but I think I might need to expand my horizons and take a roadtrip to somewhere with more options.  I’m trying to match either of our colours, royal blue and yellow.

Less than 6 months!

I still have a lot of the same things, but I’m still not decided on some major things too like:

-our officiant

-cakes – to make my own cupcakes or not

-flowers – although really considering just getting some from the grocery store and having FI’s aunt make my bouquet


Still lots of time though! 🙂

Ugh, I know writing this list is going to make me feel anxious!  It would be much quicker to list the things I have done vs. the things I haven’t.

Still left to do:

– address and send out save the dates (end of this week hopefully!)

– decide wedding colors

– decide on/ book caterer

– book bakery for petit fours (no cake for us!)

– book photographer

– decide on bridesmaid dresses

– book hair and makeup

– buy shoes/ jewelry

– decide on groom and groomsmen attire

– centerpieces and reception decor

– bouquets and ceremony decor

– buy guestbook

– book honeymoon

– shop for wedding rings

– buy Bridesmaids’ gifts/ parents’ gift

– invitations!  almost forgot that one! 


Eek!  Thankfully I have a wedding planner who will tackle a lot of these items, but looking at them all listed out is scary!  I’m sure I’ve even forgotten a thing or two… 🙁

I am feeling pretty good about everything I have done. What’s left for us:

– Get a guestbook (or decide if we will have one)

– Send invitations (they are already ordered)

– Book rehearsal dinner and send invites (possibly e-vites)

– Book cake baker

– Finalize readings/music for ceremony

– Finalize reception dances and music (like father daughter, first dance, mother son)

– Create contact sheet and vendor timeline for DOC

– Finish vows

– Finish BM gifts

– Dress fittings

– Pick out dress accessories (I have my sisters veil but undecided if I will use it)


I think that’s it. My FILs are coming in town next weekend for our tasting and we will book the rehearsal dinner spot and cake that weekend. Everything else is just minor things that FI and I have to finish. 🙂
