It is both so exciting and so overwhelming to me that we are only month out!  

Here’s what I have left:

  • track down a couple of RSVP’s and then plug them in to my seating chart (really just make changes if they are not coming)
  • write names and table numbers on escort cards
  • finish assembling my centerpieces
  • get FI’s suit dry cleaned
  • finish music list for DJ
  • final meetings with DJ, caterer, rental company, and photographer
  • get marriage license
  • buy second part of FI’s gift
  • write vows
  • buy all of the beer and nonalcoholic drinks/mixers (we already have the liquor/wine/champagne)
  • BM/GM/parent gifts are purchased but still waiting for them to come in so I can package and wrap them
  • make my menu sign
  • pick up my dress

I feel a little better having written all of that down (not as daunting as it seems in my head), but I feel like I’m forgetting so many things!  We got engaged 10/12/2014 so we’re about 10.5 months in on the planning.  I am ready to be done with planning and to be married to my FI!  And to go on the honeymoon…I am sooo excited for that!

Yay! I’m a 10/03/2015 bride! 29 more days gals!! ahhh! I have to place the deposit on the cake (tonight), make the favours (pumpkin spice hot cocoa mix), and write out the escort cards and get the programs printed (Labour Day wknd project). We have our final meeting at the venue next weekend and met with our officiant last night to finalize the ceremony and hand over our vows. We are pretty close to being done! I have small stuff to do like wrap the attendant gifts, and pick up wine for the rehearsal dinner and food for everyone who is getting ready the morning of. I booked three days off before the wedding, so hoping that’s enough time for the last minute stuff. OH! Almost forgot I pick up my dress from the alterations shop on Sunday!!! eeep! so excited to see it in all of it’s glory!!

Good luck with the rest of planning everyone:)

Technically I’m getting married on the 2nd, but our reception is the 3rd. We just changed it 2 months ago. Orginally getting married June 2016. So I’m in a mad dash to get things done.

Luckily it’s at our home. But I paid the rest down for table/chair/linen rentals today.

We’ve been doing some extra landscaping in our yard to pretty it up a little.

Fiance has been awesome when I told him I want lights from our house to the fence. He’s been in trees and on the roof and it’s finally done. He’s the best!

I’ve done a ton of DIY just need to finish up my glitter vases for centerpeices.

My dress is almost finished being altered. FIs new suit is ready to go. Just need to get his tie.

I need to buy shoes still. 

I’m freaking out that it won’t be ready. 

 My 25th birthday is next week and so is our 5year anniversary. Sadly we won’t get to do anything big because the wedding is taking over. So I’m a little bummed, BUT I’ll be a WIFE soon! It’s been a long time coming so I’m pumped for that.

Well I picked up my dress this weekend from the alterations shop and it is absolutely perfect! I am sooooo in love with it. I know it sounds silly, but I’m a plus size bride and did not imagine liking my wedding dress, let alone loving it! Also got the escort cards done and ordered the cake. I feel a little panicked that I’m almost finished…feels like I’m forgetting something!

I’m a 10/3 bride! Where did the time go?!? I went from feeling like we had so much time left to feeling like it’s too late to change anything (which is kind of a nice feeling, hah!) I really can’t believe how close we are. Now I just need to hope that it stays warm and dry in Massachusetts just a little bit longer… πŸ™‚

10/3 bride here too! I can’t believe how close it is!! Have to finish up the timeline for the photographer, get the welcome bags together (have everything, just need to put them in the bags), ahh what else?! Programs are printed. Escort cards and table numbers are being finished. Marriage license picked up. Have to send out invites for the rehearsal dinner and sunday brunch, but those are regrets only reply so that should be ok. Two people haven’t replied at all, verbally or the tradiitonal way. Oh have to finish seating chart!!

futuremrsc10315 — We have a graphic designer at work who graciously worked on the programs, and now the table numbers and escort cards. Once she’s done with the escort cards- we are putting the names of who is sitting at each table which I’m glad because I would hate to change my mind, and have to make her change it. 

 

I can’t believe how some people don’t feel the need to reply, even if they aren’t coming to the wedding!! Kinda hoping someone from those families gets married, because I might hold onto their reply for an extra amount of time.
