    I’ve still got to get back some final RSVP’s and do the seating chart/escort cards.

    I also need to work out some final details about ceremony music – getting music to the organist and the cantor, etc.

    And I’ve got about 10 more Out of Town bags to make.

    And a lot of other small details!

    I’m in the same boat as you two! Lots of stationery items (reserved signs, programs, menus) to complete, as well as putting the attendant gifts together.

    NEXT WEEK: Meeting with the DJ to finalize songs, etc. Meeting with the venue coordinator to finalize numbers, table layout, and payments.

    Still need to go shopping for honeymoon clothes, too! I’ve purchased a cute maxi dress from Old Navy…but that’s about as far as I’ve come. =)

    Where are you girls this week?? It’s nice to see everyone else’s "TO DO" list…it keeps me motivated and reminded of what I still need to do!

    Hey Ladies!


    While my date is 3/21, I’m giving myself a strict cut off of having everything done on 3/17…when I drop EVERYTHING off at our venue (ceremony and reception is in the same place).  

    To add to the enjoyment, My Fiance and I are in LA, my family is in Chicago, and we are getting married in Chicago 🙂  My Mom is doing great taking care of the Out of Town bags, and my Future Mother-In-Law has arranged a weclome cocktail hour and a sunday brunch.


    At the moment, here’s our to do list, not in priority order 😉


    1. Assign our tables to the table layout (what groups will sit where)

    2. Finalize Ceremony Wording (we are having a friend marry us)

    3. Create Print guest cards

    4. Create and Print menus

    5. Finalize Program

    6. Start welcome packet for Out of Town bags (eek)

    7. Create and print favors (we made a donation in lieu of favors)

    8. Create Day of Schedule

    9. Buy thank you gifts for Flower Girls, and my sister (who has a party company and is donating LOTS of my wedding).


    Most importantly, Ive created a healthy list for myself…listing healthy foods, good workouts to do, etc.  

    While Im feeling very zen about everything ( a HUGE improvement over last week), I’m ready to get this over with 😉 

    Good luck ladies!!!
