Congratulations! I’m getting married on April 22nd and I’ve got everything completed except for rehearsal dinner reservations, seating chart (waiting on RSVPs) and officiant. I have my final fitting scheduled for March and we are doing our dinner/cake tasting this weekend. I also need to figure out what I’m doing for my escort card table. Who knew tiny little cards could be such a big decision?

4/29 here. Still have to find someone for hair/makeup, still need to decide what I want to do for a cake, sort out cocktail hour food, and seating chart (will do once RSVPs come in). First fitting is this week.

I feel like I’m missing a bunch of stuff, though. I keep looking at the calendar and I’m shocked that I’m less than 100 days away.

Mine is April 29th. I think its coming together… Food, flowers, cake, music, bridal party clothing/accessories, transport, celebrant, hair/makeup, accommodation are all sorted… Im still waiting on a few RSVPs which I find a little irritating, but they do have until the end of next month so I should try not to be so impatient. I need to finish off the finer details of my centrepieces and my dress isnt being altered until next month. I also need to contact my on the day planner about my vendors, and organising a time for a quick rehearsal. Other than that, I think we are all ready to go. I feel like im forgetting a lot…

weddingbee17 :  30th April here.

We’re just waiting on our last few RSVPs so that we can give numbers to the venue and sort the seating plan.

My Hen Party is in a few weeks, so we’re getting the BMs fitted while they’re here 🙂 

After that it’s just my dress fittings (first one is in March) and finishing off the last few bits of DIY really 🙂

4/21 here!

We just sent out our wedding invites this past Saturday.

I had my first bridal shower and bachelorette party last weekend and it was a blast! Our next shower (coed) is this Saturday.

I have my first fitting the first Saturday in february. Other than waiting on RSVPs, buying last minute items and gifts, transportation plan, coordinating some venue stuff and seating charts, we are almost done!

weddingbee17 :  I feel like I have so much to do! April 22nd here!

My bachelorette weekend is March 3-5. My MOH is the one planning, so that I don’t have to worry about it.

We are having FIs suit custom made startig this weekend, I need to have my fittings, the guys suit rentals will be ordered in February, my BMs are starting their fittings. 

I need to have a makeup trial so that I can comfortably book and place a deposit for the makeup artist.

We are working on decor. Earth day wedding = recycled everything. Lots of DIY! 

Need to write down information for DJ including bridal party names for entrance and the songs we want to be played. 

Need to compile list of must have photos for photographer and finalize timeline.

We need to book a dinner for our rehearsal.

Invitations went out yesterday, so once RSVPs start coming back, I will start making the seating chart.

Ours is the 8th of April.

Mostly ready to go. Still have to have final fitting and do our favours and some other stationary.

But it’s going well and I’m looking forward to the day.

I have a timeline sorted and have given it to the DJ, photographer, florist, baker, celebrant, MUA etc already so it’s ON!!

I’m not having a ‘bachelorette’ but my bridal shower is on the 25th of Feb and my mom’s hosting.
