@DCSquared: Haha, this was one of the best ideas we’ve had! Fiance and I agreed we could add things to the wedding outside of our original budget if we did our own independent “fundraisers” for it. I sold a bunch of last season clothes on eBay in March and raised enough money to pay for my hair and makeup, trial, and hair for all of my bridesmaids!

I decided to do it again this month to clean out my closet so I can get a few new cute things for summer. If you have some things in good condition laying around, I would definitely recommend it! It’s a lot of work but for me it was totally worth it.

Ummm, this week we booked the DJ.  For us, one task is totally productive.  Oh! We’re getting our engagement photos done this weekend.  There two things!

@MM423: I really think that I am going to have to steal the idea of the wedding fundraiser, specifically selling on eBay.  Time to clean out the closet and make some money this time instead of donating.  Thanks for the tip!!!

@MrsBrightSkies: Do it! I’d be really excited to see this idea take off πŸ™‚ I’ve made about $850 so far. It can be pretty time consuming taking all the photos, making the listings (though you can make them pretty similar and just change the item specs), monitoring paypal payments, printing the labels, and hauling it all to the post office…but that’s a lot of money for a few hours of work! If anyone else tries it I’d love to hear how it turns out.

I read the thread title and thought it was what did you accomplish at work, and I was going to go on about my super-productive work week. As it stands now, I have not done anything wedding related this week.

I actually had a very productive week, wedding-wise!

– Finished booking honeymoon

– Ordered invitations last night

– Ordered 3 pairs of potential shoes…fingers crossed one of these works!

– Ordered robes for my girls on the day-of

– …I feel like there’s more but that’s all I can think of for now.

We got our wedding license and turned in our passport applications.
I bought my outfit for my bridal shower.
I ordered a bikini and some honeymoon clothes!!
We picked out a new ceremony site (since our original oak tree that we were getting married under fell down in a snowstorm last week).

I did hardly anything wedding related. I’m such a procrastinator.

  • Narrowed down my color scheme choices.
  • Started looking at flowers.
  • Got my FH excited about the wedding.
  • Decided on a honeymoon location and a date to book it.
  • Started working on guest lists.

I really should start doing as much as I can now, because I’ll be in school during the rest of the wedding planning process and I won’t have as much time as I do now.

Ordered stamps for invites and RSVP cards

Compiled rehearsal dinner list and sent names and addresses to Future Mother-In-Law

Started looking at B&Bs for our minimoon

Ordered 3 pairs of shoes from zappos, which I will be returning. πŸ™  Turns out trying to wear shoes with a 4″ heel is a really, really terrible idea.  (For me.)

Will be going on Sunday to pick out suit and ring for Fiance. 

Will start addressing invites today!
