Hi!  My list of to dos is pretty similar to yours.  I still need to:

  • Get Jewelry and other accessories for wedding day (have shoes but might look for another pair)
  • Favors
  • programs
  • fittings for dress (being made)
  • finalize stuff with florist
  • ceremony – everything – write vows, discuss ceremony with officiants, music…
  • hair/makeup trial
  • sending invites out this week
  • finish bridesmaids gifts and pick out hostess gifts
  • get garter set
  • Out of Town bags (can’t do yet, I have no idea how many OOtowners I have coming)
  • toasting flutes/ cake server set

I’m sure I have tons left to do, just can’t think of more right now.

Oh my goodness! I’m freaking out reading these! I’m getting married 9/26 and I’m freaking about getting it all done. I’ve been so mellow up until now…the last 2 weeks have been stressful…oh well, I’m sure it’ll all get done eventually! The list is too long to list on here! I think I’m behind….

I still have a long to-do list myself, but it’s most detail type stuff. I have a big exam on 8/25, so after that it’s all wedding planning 🙂 (other than work of course haha!)

Hi all! I’ve been reading Wedddingbee for months but never check out the boards! I was so excited to find the month twins section.

I am a September 26 bride and, for all the rest of you month/day twins, today marks the 50 day mark!!

I still have quite a to-do list. Is it just me or do the rest of you feel like, between now and the big day, you will literally be working on/ thinking about/ doing something EVERY SINGLE DAY for the wedding! Ok, maybe that’s just me starting to freak out a little…

Here’s what I have!

  • Meet up with vendors at the venue to go over remaining details.
  • Pick my bridal make-up
  • Get undergarments and shoes (hoping to knock this out this weekend)
  • Work on seating chart and escort cards
  • Buy one more thing for the girls and the parents gifts
  • Finalize the playlists
  • Get our rings cleaned before the end of the month
  • Send in final balances to vendors.
  • Pick which cookies, cupcakes and pies we’ll be having for our dessert table.
  • Finalize ceremony

I think those are the major things!

I’m a 9/26 bride! Here’s what I have left:

– Finalize our seating charts and favor tags.
– Confirm everything with all our vendors (approx. 2-3 weeks before)
– Get my dress altered (appointment in a week!)
– Pick up my FI’s suit from alterations.
– Finalize ceremony with our officiant (she let us customize one with her).
– Finalize playlists and volume normalize our songs in iTunes (iPod wedding).
– Box up all our supplies and ship them to NY (we live in Chicago, getting married in NY).
– Buy our candy bar candy, snacks for Out of Town bags.

That’s pretty much it! We’ll be doing our final venue walkthrough the Wednesday before (when we land in NY) and assembling Out of Town bags in NY as well.

The major things I have left…

  • Confirm ceremony music
  • Get items for Out of Town bags and assemble (can’t do til week of since we don’t live several hours away from where we are getting married) 
  • Assemble favors (again, a week-of-wedding event)
  • Pick up wedding bands 
  • Pick up dress (it’s ready!)
  • Print programs and place cards
  • Create seating assignments
  • Order cake topper
  • Buy frames for table numbers; print pictures for table numbers
  • Buy my parents a gift…a few little things more for the girls 

Those are the biggest things I can think of at this point. The project(s) I want to tackle this week are the programs and place cards.

Good luck to everyone with all the “last minute” details! Seven weeks to go!

I am also 9/26/09! I can’t believe it’s so close.

My “Left to do” List looks pretty much like everyone else’s. We are good


My mantra is: Finalize, finalize, finalize!

Three weeks to go! I’ve been checking things left and right off my list. The Fiance has been so helpful with the last little details. This week, we:

  • Finished our programs
  • Created our escort cards
  • Made our table numbers (doing the finishing touches tonight!)
  • Made, printed, cut water bottle labels
  • Stalked our missing RSVPs  (only missing 3 responses now!) 

Let to do:

  • Pick up my dress (it’s ready, but I’ve just been too busy to get it!)
  • Buy gifts for the flower girl and my parents
  • Print Out of Town map and write a welcome letter
  • Buy a few other misc. items for the day-of

Other than that, I’m feeling pretty good! Work is super busy right now which is probably a good thing (keeps my mind pre-occupied).

How is everyone else doing? Honestly, I’m not super stressed- I’m really excited for the day to get here!

16 days away!

All I have left to do is..
1) Try on gown one final time
2) Buy ring bearer and flower girl gifts
3) Buy my parents a thank you gift
4) Pick up rental items.
5) Print wedding programs.

I think that’s it!
