off the top of my head… garter? veil? jewelry? guestbook? are you doing a photobooth, candy buffet, or anything interactive (not necessary, just putting it out there)…. video? transportation? welcome bags?

Check out the checklists offered by theknot.com or this one:

They all come in handy, so you know you won’t forget the major things. I have the R&H printed out in my wedding binder, but go on The Knot daily to see what still needs to be done… and I’m less then 2 weeks away!

just_another_dandelion:  I would say you are pretty ahead of the game, you should stop freaking out lol!

Out of that list I would make my top priorities tying down photography and music. Those book fast- a lot of people book more than a year out. If you are getting a videographer, same thing. (those run around the same cost as photography). Also your BM dresses I would say order in the next month or two. We ordered ours in March and they arrived in August. Then you have to get them altered, etc. Make sure you have time.

Invites you should order as soon as you pick them out (why wait?), but you won’t need to send them until about 6-8 weeks out, so just estimate design/shipping time and you’ll be ok if you wait a while.

The only others I can think of are what kristen182:  said. Transportation if you need it to and from the wedding (get-away car), transportation for your guests from the hotel if there isn’t a shuttle.

I am currently in the process of everything ^^^ said. ALL the DIYs, and I am 2 months away. Go table by table and think “what do I want to put here” (guest table, favor table, cake table, entry, sparklers?, etc.)  I suggest bowsing pintrest with “wedding ideas” or something like that to find the fun little extras. Those you have a lot more time on.

Good luck!

I swear by the checklist on http://www.theknot.com sign up and then go to my checklist and mark it off, you can edit the dates, add, subtract to do’s, etc. It has definitely kept me ahead of the game! The budgeter is great on there too to help you think of all the little things you might not have.
