  • Wedding: October 2010

I’m being kind of organic and just taking things on in a sort of order of importance. First I did the venue, which is a restaurant so that took care of catering and rentals. Then photographer, hair and make-up, next was flowers. Yesterday I secured the hotel room for the night before and the night of the wedding. I’m off to my second fitting Thursday (already got the shoes). The invitations should be in next week. The next thing on the list is to make a date for the e-pics. Then I suppose it is time to start addressing invitations. On the way I have been making notes for what I will be doing with all the coming to do’s like oot bags, Maid/Matron of Honor gifts, and  rehearsal dinner location possibilities (think we found one last night).

Maybe I should be more organized about it but it seems to be working out. Every now and then I check on a list that The Knot provides to make sure I am not forgetting anything.

I’m very type-A personality, so we have a huge spreadsheet of everything broken down into small categories and deadlines, with the hopes of having VERY LITTLE to do in the weeks leading up to the wedding.  We have lots of friends and family coming from around the world, and I want to be able to enjoy time with them!  This month, our deadlines are:

invited out- done

make appointment for menu tasting- done

assemble toiletries kits for bathrooms- in progress

book luncheon for girls- done

Make table numbers- Inlaws coming tonight to help

Make picture frames for church- inlaws tonight 🙂

decorate our vases for head table- in progress

purchase gifts for parents- have mom’s gifts, working on the dads


that’s it for this month 🙂
