what do you have left to do?
what do you have left to do?
I still have to choose the vows, the songs, and a few more decorations.. I’m meeting with the baker next weekend & finishing up all the small touches. I am so glad its almost here, I never realized how much work really took to plan a wedding especially when you are doing it mostly by yourself!
Yeah, I still need to write my vows, finalize the cake, transportation for just myself, and what jewelry I will be wearing.
I still don’t have a guestbook! Also need to print and assemble programs, and alphabetize placecards. And buy and wrap bridal party gifts–guess I have less than a week to do this!! 🙂 I think if I have time I will also make backup cd’s of both my ceremony music and important dances songs for the reception.
I have a whole hall and rehearsal to set up on Friday! AHH!
I have my jewelry, programs, and Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts to finish (and start!), as well as the final details of the rehearsal dinner and transportation. I think it’s actually coming together though!
I still have to finish my centerpieces haha. That will only take a couple hrs though. Then finish stuffing the Out of Town bags. Probably other things too but can’t think of anything else right now.
Our caterer has been flooded out and has no road access or electricity. Our florist’s shop was completely flooded. And our venue is currently inaccessible because the roads are all shut down in the Catskills.
So, I thought i was almost finished, but now I may need to find a new venue and caterer with 5 days notice. And we don’t know yet if we will be able to use our wedding insurance.
Wow ladies….time is really flying now!
My to do list:
Call MY family who neglected to RSVP but I’m sure are planning to attend *oh what fun lol* NOT! Final count due next Wednesday
Finish up and finalize playlist and special songs
Drop Cake decorations off at bakery
