ekelso92:  Yay! August 30 here 🙂

Mostly what I have left to do is I need to see our reception venue to choose a menu and decorations, send out my invitations, finalise numbers with the venue, make place cards/table numbers and order the groomsmen’s suits.

I THINK that is mostly everything. We have got a lot under control so I really hope I am not sitting back and relaxing for nothing 😛

In July 26- so basically August!

I still have to make the pew bows and programs for the ceremony

Place cards and photobooth signs

And finish up the girls’ gifts? 

Think that’s it?

Ignore the wedding date that pops up, I put that up before I nailed down a date… The groomsmen need their attire, cake (the place caught fire, and if it is not all cleaned and fixed up by the end of the month, I will switch to their other location), seating chart (just assigning people to tables), music (no dj, just laptop or MP3 and speakers), purchasing honeymoon items, marriage license (can’t do that until about a month out), purchasing aforementioned speakers and perhaps a microphone, and nothing really major.

ekelso92: Eep! We have a lot to do.

  • Settle on a cake
  • Boxes for cake (I’m making them by hand)
  • Favors for guests
  • Book our DJ
  • Bridal acessories (earrings, necklace, shoes)
  • Groom Suit
  • Ties for fathers and brothers
  • Place cards
  • Design guest “book”
  • Design vow book
  • Settle on florist
  • Plan the honeymoon now that we know where we’re going!!!!

I try not to think about it which only makes it worse. =(

ekelso92:  we are August 2nd! Pretty close to done actually. Our invites go out next week to friends (already sent to family), then once we have our numbers there are a few things I need to finalize (eg seating, etc) and then we are good to go. Can’t wait!
