We’re down to mostly paper goods (signs, placecards, programs, and table numbers) — that being said, it’s just a lot to do still.

  • Wedding: May 2016 - Home, sweet home

My date is May 7th as well! I just put the finishing touches on the bouquets and boutonniere. I still have to get the music and arrange the rehersal. Though I suppose the most important thing to do is to get the marriage license as soon as my fiance gets back to the state.

  • Wedding: May 2016

Our date is May 28. We have to buy alcohol, get our marriage license, get FH’s tie, and he has to finish getting his groomsmen gifts. His bachelor party is in two weeks and my bridal shower is in three weeks. My bachelorette isn’t until two days before the wedding, since my sister and close friends all live in different states and it didn’t make sense for everyone to travel twice.

May 28th here. We still need to finish planning the final touches of the ceremony. We need to get the marriage license. Need to finish some FYI projects, table numbers, seating chart, still need to purchase accessories and I think that’s it. Hope I’m not forgetting something

  • Wedding: May 2016 - Stone Garden Events

My date is May 14! I need to finish all my DIY projects. I am making marquee letters with wood and metal siding. I am almost done with those. I have a couple other easier projects I want to try to finish before the wedding. We need to pick up the marriage license, buy the alcohol, order the pies we are serving in addition to the cake, I need my final fitting, and to buy bridesmaid gifts. Eek! Kinda freaking out!

Buy the booze, escort cards, fire permit, signs, dress fittings, welcome party planning, timeline, boudoir shoot, honeymoon packing, I feel like we have soooo much left to do!

May 14th! just over a month to go and the main thing I’m working on now is figuring out the final guest count as we still have a couple people to hunt down. Once that’s done we can start with the seating chart, finalize everything with our florist and finish ordering our favours. We still have children activity books, welcome bags for people traveling and few other small details. We also need to finish coming up with our timeline and get back to the venue coordinator, photographers and DJ. Nothing major left but lots of little details so I’m going to be pretty busy for the next few weeks!

  • Wedding: May 2016 - Ever After Banquet Hall

May 7 here! I still have to build my arch (just using PVC, will be covered with drapy fabric), finish preparing our unity painting (it will actually be pre-painted, we will just be removing tape to reveal a heart during the ceremony), seating chart and place cards once I get those last few people to RSVP, hair trial is tomorrow, and the one thing we have been putting off…..getting nice dress shirts and pants for our sons. Oh, and the marriage license LOL I guess that’s kind of a biggie LOL

Me! May 27 🙂 I can’t believe it’s finally almot here. We are having a small wedding (21 guets plus us) but we still had to arrange and do all the same things. I’m just finishing up the reception playlit right now since with such a small wedding we are not having a dj or band. I also CAN’T WAIT for our honeymoon in Hawaii right after 🙂

May 29th here!!!! Got most of my vendors booked, except for hair stylist, makeup artist, and videographer? I’m also a bit scared because I’m doing bulk flowers from sams club, I have to order them the week of the wedding and hope it’ll all work out. I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one stressed out. My fiance and I are also fixing up our house and planning our honeymoon, so lots of stress!!
