decide on hairstyle & makeup (meeting w/ stylist tomorrow morning)
decide on dessert choices
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

@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…
