I am a Aug 14 bride to be too.  5 month is going to FLY by!  I have 7 bridesmaids, 2 live in different cities and one lives in Japan.  What was I thinking? Oh well, everything will work out just fine! DEEP BREATHS Laughing

Well, we’re still working out the menu. August 14th in Charleston, SC is going to be hot, muggy, and humid! Thank god our ceremony and reception are inside! Even still, my Fiance and I are trying to think of ways to keep our guests cool, like serving fresh local fruit at the cocktail hour (along with many ice cold beverages). We even serving a cold soup at the reception – what an idea! We’re trying to keep everyone as cool as possible, but I can’t make any promises once the band starts playing 🙂

What are the rest of you bees doing to make sure your guests stay cool on our hot August 14th wedding days??

lsaunde – I’m getting married in Myrtle Beach and my wedding ceremony program is going to be a paddle fan plus we’re by the beach so I’m hoping there will be a breeze come 6pm.  We are also hoping to keep the ceremony down to 30 min or less so that everyone can get into the AC.

Jaydee – great idea! I’ve seen people use faux sweetgrass material as the backing of programs to give the paddles a southern feel without breaking the bank. Great idea!

I am so glad you started this thread!  I can’t believe we’re at 4 1/2 months.. yikes!  We got engaged at Christmas, so it felt like we had eons of time.  Things are getting so real!  Here’s an accomplished list, just to make me feel better:

-dress purchased. No fitting needed.
-suit ordered
-venue, photog, alcohol, caterer booked
-STD’s mailed
-honeymoon booked
-favors in the works
-some decorations purchased, not all put together
-officiants booked

SO much still to do…. programs, menus, invitations, finish favors, figure out how we want the ceremony to go, etc.  Where is everyone else on their to do list?

I am definitely behind-I am just ordering my dress today!  Since we are eloping and doing a wedding -moon, the rest of it was easy to plan. Our at-home reception isn’t until October.
