I sent my invitations TODAY!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I was a little sad to leave them in the hands of the post office workers, as they have been my labor of love the past month, but I’m sooo excited to start getting rsvps!

On my to do list:

-Hair trial

-Find vows!

-Linens, rent tables

-Find flower girl dress

-Bridesmaids accessories

-Marriage License

-Plan rehearsal dinner

-Book night-of-wedding-place

-Make ceremony programs

-Guestbook

And probably a few more other things I can’t think of at the moment! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m getting so excited!!!

Yee! I’m so excited too but OMG I have so much left! I’ve actually gone through various stages of panic the last few weeks and got a lot done though (I guess that’s what works for me lol), so I’m hoping this all goes pretty fast…

  • Dress fittings
  • Figure out my “somethings” (I don’t have jewelry yet so I’m hoping I can maybe get “old” and “borrowed” taken care of here)
  • Plan rehearsal dinner (made FH in charge of this one)
  • Send out invites (hopefully by next week or the week after!)
  • Marriage license
  • Update/finalize seating chart
  • Miscellaneous decoration crafts/program fans
  • Hair & makeup trials
  • Put together favors
  • Figure out BM/GM gifts
  • Figure out music playlist
  • Finalize cermony readings/order; write vows
  • Guestbook
  • Rings
  • Cupcakes

I know there is more to do, but thankfully I have my sister/MOH coming into town this weekend to help me out!

I need to figure out where I’m getting my hair done and set up a trial! Oh the woes of getting married 3 hours away from home…haha

Yay yay yay!

So my hairdresser cancelled on me ๐Ÿ™ I am going to stop in at a place over the lunch hour (a blow-out hair bar) to see if I can get in…risky, seeing as how I won’t know the stylists, but I think it will work out! And the prices are pretty reasonable.

Finished half of the slideshow this past weekend, set up my first dress fitting (June 8!) and started the programs. Need to start painting the thrift-store vases for the aisle decor. RSVPs are rolling in everyday. Really need to get started on the vows, finish the playlist and oh ya, get the marriage license so we can meet with our commissioner.

Dear lord, this will be here before I know it!

How’s everyone else’s planning going?

I had my bridal shower yesterday! It was great! I was a little nervous being in the spotlight (I guess it was good practice for the wedding!) and having so many different groups of people (his family, my family, my friends from different parts of my life). But it was great! My sister (and MOH) did an amazing job and we got some awesome gifts!

I also had my hair trial and LOVED it! Now I’m all set for the big day, hair-wise! 

We haven’t had many RSVP’s in the last few weeks ๐Ÿ™ Hopefully they’ll start picking up soon!

Left to do:

-Book rehearsal dinner restaurant

-Make ceremony programs

-Finalize vows

-Get marriage license

-Veil comb

-Buy day-of makeup

-Finish some DIY decor

-Buy thank you cards

-Music playlist (ugh, such a big task…haha)

-Favors

-Timelines

-Tableseating

 

That’s about it! eeeee!
