Oof. Lots to do, and time is running out!

  • Finish writing ceremony
  • Design programs
  • Print programs, centerpiece quotes, and favor labels
  • Buy chocolates for favors and assemble packages
  • Track down people who haven’t RSVP’d
  • Make final payment to caterer and give final head count
  • Make final payment to venue and give final head count; make floor plan for reception setup
  • Make final payment to photographer and give must-have pic list
  • Apply for marriage license
  • Finish purchasing officiant and grooms men’s gifts
  • Purchase parent gifts (can’t do this until a few days before the wedding)
  • Find going away outfit?

Probably lots more little stuff, but this list has worn me out as it is!

Ack!  26 more days for me… less really, since today doesn’t really count anymore.


Still to do:

Receive wedding favors (already ordered – they should be shipping out soon)

Another fitting for the dress on the 16th… I should be able to take the dress home!

Design & print the programs

Get the marriage license (applied online today – need to pick it up still)

Beats RSVPs from those who didn’t respond

Check on my room block for the hotel

Make final payment to venue, give final head count and floor plan.

Make a seating chart

Print out guestbook pages, buy a scrapbook & plastic inserts/protectors for it.  And pens.

Print place cards.

Drop off place cards, guest book, favors, etc to the venue so they’ll have them for setup.


I’m sure that there is more, but this is what I could think of off the top of my head!

Lose 5 lbs because I’ve gained 5 lbs since moving in with FH. Other than that my Future Mother-In-Law is doing most of the work so I have not much to do (she wanted the wedding so she’s planning it and paying for it).

It’s been smooth sailing for us. Thanks to my wedding planner a lot of things are handled.I don’t feel like I have that much to do.

My Future Mother-In-Law finished all of our paper stuff and diy projects and she mailed everything and they got here last week.

Finished all most meetings with my vendors. I have one more meeting with florist and my wedding planner to see final setup for tables.

We are still editing our food but that been done through email, and we might have one final meeting with the caterer, because he told us it might be a good idea to come in and finalize everything face to face.

We also have one final meeting with the church in three weeks.

I have my final dress fitting, and taking my dress home finally!

I bought all of the things for oot boxes, and have to run to the store to buy some ribbon and I order stickers off of esty finish them. We already set them up so these are just finishing touches.

I’m on the hunt for bridesmaid shoes still.

I have a few rsvps to hunt down, but most of them are local and I’m not that worried about it.  I given them until first week in April then they automatically go down as a no.

Other then that I really have nothing else to do.

16 days to go! I’m proud to say that I’ve done most of the things on the list I posted a week ago!

Now I have about a week of calm before I have to start doing things that can’t be done until just before the wedding! Then the craziness really starts!! So excited!

15 days left to go for me!  I picked up my wedding programs & guestbook pages today (I designed them but had a little printing company print them out for me) and also picked up my wedding dress!  Yays!  Also found a cute 8×8 album to put our guestbook pages in.


Tomorrow, I plan to start working on escort cards!
