You are doing great! Here is my list of to-do’s:

-Speak with florist

-Buy FI’s ring

-Buy favors

-Buy presents for bridal party/parents

-Get marriage license

-Rent centerpieces

-Book a DJ

-Buy guestbook

-Choose songs for ceremony/reception

-Decide on whether or not we will have decorations at the ceremony space

-Design programs

-Book hotel room

-Do hair/makeup trial


I’m sure there are other things that I haven’t thought of yet… I’m a little behind because I did student teaching last semester and was unable to work on ANYTHING for four months straight… very scary. I’m catching up slowly but surely though!

Urgh. My list has gotten longer instead of smaller. All these stupid details are driving me nuts.

– Invitations:  Done.  We did end up going with Plan B.  FI feels terrible but what we chose were very nice.

– Hair trial:  Scheduled for July 20th.

– Lose eight pounds:  Well, it’s seven pounds now.  Stress eating is my downfall.

– Marriage license:  Any time after 60 days.  FI is excited to go.

– Order flowers:  Perhaps today!

– Memory charm photos:  On hold as my Mac is in the shop.  I did figure out the pixel dimensions for the frame charms.

– Suit fitting – done.  No alterations needed.  I’ll find out about my own dress when I try it on again around the Fourth of July.

– Anti-slip soles are done.  Heel liners aren’t yet.

We are both working like crazy–FI hasn’t had a day off since June 2nd–so the time is going to speed by I’m sure.
