Send out letter to all attending guests

Get list of where all guests are staying

Complete welcome bags

Finalize transportation logistics

2 more dress fittings

Finalize ceremony music

Decide on ceremony readings

Pick mother/son father/daughter dance song

Put together iPod playlist for Rehearsal Dinner

Finalize day of timing with photographer

Wrap Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts (and write notes to each)

Buy cufflinks for Fiance

I’m sure there’s more… but I’m going to stop because I’m feeling overwhelmed.

We’re September 17th and I may need to bust out my checklist for this one:

thank you note stationary
figure out or buy jewelry that I will wear
make sure all my bridesmaids buy dresses (only 2 have, as far as I know… I’ve threatened them with random crap from my closet if they don’t have anything)
decide on hairstyle & makeup (meeting w/ stylist tomorrow morning)
decide on dessert choices
buy glowsticks
put together bathroom baskets
finalize playlist (our DJ friendor is coming to visit next weekend)
pick up groom’s suit
make sure all groomsmen own and remember to bring suits
edit ceremony & write vows
get marriage license
finish timeline

create escort cards
invite people to rehearsal dinner
confirm who is doing toasts
photography shot list
remember to bring our stuff to carmel
pay $$$$

OK I think that’s about it…

@NYQTNVA: We are having a destination wedding. So we are sending our guests a letter asking them to tell us where they are staying (so we can provide welcome bags) as well ast letting them know about local attractions, weather, etc.

 

@Entangled: Gah! I totally forgot about bathroom baskets.

I was just thinking we needed a post like this (what could we be forgetting)

I need to:
-print/cut the escort cards
-get a cake topper
-create table numbers
-purchase our parent gifts

I *think* that is pretty much it

AHH! this post is scary!

– get bridesmaids/groomsmen gifts

– bathroom baskets

– finalize who is doing readings

– write prayer of the faithful

– figure out what groom is wearing

– find reception dress

– pick up dress from seamstress

– find shoes!

– buy flowers for BM’s bouquets

and then the groom has his own list as well…
