Have you a photog? A dj/ ipod + playlist?Vows/readings picked?

I’m inclined to think all you really need is a good meal and god music and everyone’s happy.

it’s free and it provides a checklist that shows when tasks for the wedding are due. That way you know you’re on the ball and it’s gratifying to check things off!

Yes, you need a checklist! The thought of this happeneing to me almost just gave me a heart attack! My wedding is not until Sept of next year and I have all my research done on the big stuff with 2 options picked out for each. Ceremony site, reception hall, dj, photographer, ect.

Dont worry about the RSVPs as you dont usually need an exact count until the week of your wedding. Just give estimates to the people who need them bc believe me they will understand that you dont have the exact numbers.

if you’re that close I wouldn’t worry about the type of stamp, I’d just mail them out!!!  People can take their sweet time with the rsvp’s and you want to have numbers to give vendors.  my recommendation would be to ask friends to research stuff for you.  eg. ask 1 person to find you a good make up artist, another for a cake, another for alterations, another for the flower girl dresses etc.  that way everyone has a job – can you ask someone to pick up the stamps and drop them off to you?  If you ask they will help!

Check out the knot.com’s checklist. But, you ARE in the waiting stage. A few weeks/month before, we get into that place where nothing can be done because you’re waiting on the RSVPs. If you can guestimate and get away with doing some things, like decor, accessories, transportation, etc, do that while you wait. Otherwise, stay on top of people and try to get as many RSVPs as you can so you can hurry up the process.

you really need to get those invites out. some vendors (mine) want final numbers 2 weeks before the wedding. that only gives your guests 2 weeks to rsvp!

I’ve felt pretty much exactly the same way. I’m sorry you’re feeling this way too, but am comforted that I’m not the only one.

First, get a checklist that is to your taste and make a budget for how much you want to allocate for each thing. Do the big ones first (license, dress, tux, flowers, food, cake, photos,

Do you have an officiant?

I ordered junior bridesmaid dress two months ago and it will not be in for another month. You may find a nice dress off the rack at bigger stores.

What type of cake do you want? I don’t necessarily lump that in with food.

Do you have all the requirments to pick up a marriage license for your state?

Flowers- are you going to do your own, have someone make them, or get some pretties from a grocery store/Walmart?

Venue for reception? Decorations, chairs, etc.
