  • Wedding: May 2015 - Our church and then at The Garden Room for the reception

Yikes! Seeing everyone’s lists makes me think that we’re falling behind again. I guess after FI’s college final exam in a few days, we need to start cracking down again over Christmas break.

  • Purchased Photo Guestbook
  • Purchased Latern Cardholder

Here’s what we’ve decided on but still have to complete or purchase:

  • Purchased DIY Kokeshi wedding cake toppers – need to paint

  • DIY Makeup – need to purchase
  • DIY Hair – need to purchase accessories
  • Chose groomsmen gifts
  • Chose favors

Here’s what still needs to be decided:

  • Bridesmaid dresses – I chose the color and they will purchase themselves, only Maid/Matron of Honor has made a purchase
  • Ceremony Music & Readings – will be done about 3 month before ceremony
  • Rehearsal Dinner – Future Mother-In-Law is set on organizing this
  • Escort Cards – I have a couple ideas I’m thinking about
  • Day of transportation to and from church – also have a couple ideas for this, but need to make a final decision
  • Need to purchase dress accessories/jewelry, undergarments, and shoes
  • Bridesmaid gifts – I have 2 ideas and I just have chose one

We’re not doing a DJ, so we don’t have to worry about that! There’s probably more I’m can’t remember off the top of my head, but I feel like we’re on the right track and on time with everything!
