favors, flower girl dresses, my FI’s wedding band, 3 more bridesmaids need to order their dresses (they may drive me crazy), they all need to get shoes, flower girl gifts, junior bridesmaid gifts, groomsmen gifts, marriage license.

I think there’s more but I can’t think of anything right now.

Favors, wedding rings, dress alterations, my veil, bridal party gifts and marriage license. Not anything too big and honestly, I’m not stressed, just imPatient! With most of the wedding planned, I just want to get married already, not wait another four months.

Wedding bands, shoes and accessories for me, Shirt and tie for him, FLOWERS!!!!!!!, invitations put together, finish up ceremony order, program poster printed…


And too much more. I find the big stuff to be easy, and then comes all the gritty details that he has never even thought of.

– need to purchase ties for everyone
– need to figure out WTF to do about flowers
– need to put together our ceremony backdrop once I get the fabrics
– need to paint votive holders (it needs to get WARMER!!!)
– need to make my remembrance charms
– need to print off invitation envelopes (argh–this NEEDS to be done ASAP) 
– need to get our marriage license (but we can’t do that until August)

August Brides, woop woop! I  love this site for the brides, but I have to admit that I use weddingwire for their budget and list tools. There’s a TON of little things that it helps me to remember (or decide I don’t care about).

Yay August brides!!!

Up until yesterday, I had a lot of the big stuff out of the way, mostly small things left. I need to get my dress altered, finish invitations, get the rings and marriage license, finish my centerpieces, rent a tent and portable restrooms, finish off my favors, get Fiance motivated to get his tux…and that’s all!

At least, I wish that was all. We didn’t originally want a bridal party, but Fiance changed his mind and now MUST have a best man…Yeah, 115 days till the wedding and NOW he wants a best man, which means I need a Maid/Matron of Honor…So that’s kind of a big thing I need to work into the plans….*sigh* I’m starting with their clothes, getting a second bouquet made and re-working our ceremony processional and reception entrance…

Ladies, I’m feeling the stress!!!

Wedding Bands (already picked out, purchasing in June)

Favors for guests + wedding party

Bridal accessories

Invitations + Programs

Marriage License (within 30 days of the wedding)

We secured all major vendors/decor within 5 months of engagement and have just been paying off things since then… we don’t have much left to do. Everything is scheduled to be paid off by July. Def the way to go to stay stress free!! (for now..haha!)
