I’m freaking out. There is SO MUCH TO DO! I’m heading from NY to Worcester this Friday, and we’re also coordinating a move. My major wedding tasks:
-Finish shopping for various gifts
-“Must” lists for photographer & band
-Final payments & counts to all vendors
-Assemble one squillion DIY elements
What about the rest of you August ladies? How are you doing? (And congratulations to the August 1-2 brides!)

Congratulations. I have to finish DIY stuff, organize everything into totes for the wedding coordinator, get dresses pressed/steamed, buy all the food and stuff for our pre-wedding celebrations.

I’m getting married on Saturday. It’s kind of surreal to me. We have to decorate our cupcake tree, wrap all of our presents to the wedding party and parents, purchase all the beer and soda, put the flowers in the centerpieces, make the bouquets, print out the readings, ceremony, and our vows.
His mom is coming to stay with us tomorrow so that will be a big help and my mom took off of work, so I’ll have some helpers. I can’t believe it’s finally here!

We’ve still got quite a few tasks on the to-do list as well — congrats on reaching our month, though, everyone!

Whew, 6 more days!!
We’re in pretty good shape, BUT I am working full time this week and only taking Friday off. Everything we have left is manageable–
Out of Town bags, dye hair, wrap gifts (and purchase a few more items for that), get rings cleaned, make place cards, figure out seating chart (ummm excuse me family, can’t you all neatly fit into obvious groups of 8?!), write my vows, pack for honeymoon, unpack moving boxes, “must have” lists to DJ, photog, and videog, thank you notes from the last shower and random gifts, pick reading for Future Sister-In-Law who decided not to play violin anymore, make programs!
So I’ve got my hands full but frankly my maids are very supportive and they’re willing to help me with all this stuff, and the thank you notes might just wait. And my parents arrive Thursday!
Happy Wedding Month!!!

I know! Our last week as un-married women! We still need to make bouquets, bouts, centerpieces, programs (how did I let that one get by me?), finalize ceremony music, meet with officiant, pick up tuxes, wrap Bridesmaid or Best Man and Groomsmen gifts, and probably a gazillion other little things I can’t think of right now… but it’s here girls! I’m more excited than anything else. 🙂
