Wow, with 2 weeks left those seem like long lists! Of course I am a typical type-A personality. All I have left is assemble favors, get nails done, get ring polished, mount seating chart and final run through with officiant. You ladies need any help? 😉

@xtatic1: I’m like you. I needed to get things done early.

I’ve had a checklist on the fridge for months. The only things we have left are to:

assemble programs (doing tomorrow)

stuff Out of Town bags (tomorrow)

send names/table assignments to friend who is creating placecards

purchase rest of and wrap bridal party gifts

confirm final details with reception venue – can’t do until the 7th

Seeing theknot.com countdown every day is making me a little anxious though!

@bee_elle: My friend has actually taken care of our invitations, programs, place cards, and table numbers. I figured paying someone is a lot easier (less stressful) for me, but trying to get a hold of her to make sure we are on track has been a bit frustrating. She hasn’t let me down yet, so I think it’s just my crazy bride brain making me crazy.

I’m pretty close to being done, but here’s what’s left:

*Strangle the groomsmen if they don’t tell me whether or not they’re bringing dates

*Make sure my bms all fit into their dresses or have some sort of option available, lol.

*Build a photobooth backdrop and buy dollar store props
