@sarahblais:  It sounds like you are pretty on track. Are you using a checklist?


I feel like I have a lot done actually, but my next things to do are book the shuttle bus and work on jewelry for myself and the girls. I also have a list for my Fiance lol He needs to select the tuxes and print the invitations that he designed. I feel like I don’t have a lot to do, but I’m sure it’s going to hit me all at once!

Hahahahaha! Ok, let’s see… It would be easier to list the things I HAVE done… Shorter list. 

To do: choose venue, book venue, order invites, order favors, order candies, paint decorations, print pictures, save/paint bottles/jars, find cloth for tables, go to ikea and buy candles and glass and holders and napkins and make invites, and buy silk flowers to make pomanders, pack my apartment and ship my stuff to California, alter dress, find shoes, go to the town where Ethernet wedding will be for legalIty paperwork, oh, and everything else I forgot…,

He just booked all the tuxes tonight, so almost done.  We are going to do the seating charts after the RSVP’s come in on the 13th of June, sending out the invites the first week of May.  So unless I add something to our DIY wedding… we are done!  I did add personalized crayon boxes for the kids’ activity books this weekend… so thats all she wrote   but the wait till then, lol!
