Send in final payments
Have hair and makeup trial
Make escort cards
Go get our marriage license
Buy gifts for parents, child attendants, etc.
Pack for honeymoon
Have my bachelorette party (!!!)

Hi date twin! I’m feeling the same. I can’t believe its actually June. I’m semi-freaking out about all the lil things we have to do. I feel like I shouldn’t be relaxing at any point of the day, but that’s just absurd. My list isn’t even that bad!
Here it is 🙂
paint design on aisle runner
finalize seating chart
write out placecards
give all contracts and contact #’s to my Aunt who will handle all that stuff the day of
do thank you cards/add gratuity for vendors
finalize with videographer
finalize with DJ… which means we have to pick out a couple more songs
finalize with hair/make-up stylist
finalize with florist
final dress fitting
final meeting with DOC
wrap FI’s and parents gifts, write card
assemble a bag for the day and night of the wedding
shop for honeymoon
pack for honeymoon

YAY JUNE brides!! I woke up extra early this morning and thought “Ohmigosh it’s JUNE!”, and couldn’t go back to sleep, lol!
My wedding is in 4 days!! I’m pretty much done with everything… just some of the last minute stuff to do:
— pack for hotel (we are staying in a suite on Fri and Sat nights)
— confirm rehearsal dinner details
— shop for rehearsal dress (I have one, but I’m not totally in love with it)
— pick up dress from dry cleaners (it’s being pressed/steamed) on Fri
— get mani/pedi
— pack for honeymoon/ confirm trip details
That’s about it for now! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!

AAAAKKKKCCCCC is all I have to say! I have 11 days to go and this is my last day off before then! I only have 7 more days of work before I am off and running! I am heading to pick up my dress in 15 min and am so excited for that. I am still tying up a few craft loose ends and packing stuff up for the 2hr trip to the venue next week. Next week will be alllll about the food since we are doing a self cater reception….and I am not really looking forward to that! I’m planning to sit down and do a day by day todo list when I get back with my dress so I’ll have to come back and add it once I am done!

WOOHOOO!!!!! even though I still have a FEW small things left to do – I took this past weekend to knock out some of the bigger things.
all i can say though – after TWO FREAKIN’ YEARS is YAY!!!! IT’S FINALLY JUNE 2010!!!!
Let’s see though. I know I still have:
* Flowers (being done by a friend at work) – trust her enough she’ll have em done by the wedding
* Put together CD of pictures for the Videographer to put together our video montage (doing this tonight)
* print off home-made candy bar wrappers and wrap candy bars for reception.
* Friday is my final fitting/pick up dress from alterations.
* Seating Chart/Place cards (chart is almost done)
* Thursday I meet with the photographer for wrap-up
* Wednesday the 9th meet with venue for last minute details.
* Finish Day-of paper packets (been working on this…)
* Bachelorette Party is on the 12th.
* Manicure is on the 24th…
Honestly that looks like a lot but is SUCH a much smaller list than 2 weeks ago!
Can I just say, though – I’m SO excited it’s here but SOOOOOOO happy the wedding planning will be done and over with soon!?!!! again, it’s been TWO YEARS!

@SweetAdeline – we are sorta doing that for our honeymooon too!!! we know what city we’re going to (Myrtle Beach) – but we haven’t had the $$ to book any hotels or anything yet – so we’re hoping for a lot of money from the wedding and then we’re driving down there Monday Morning (June 28) and will find somewhere to stay! :p

I’m relieved to say that the only major things I have left to do is to do is pick up my dress and make the escort cards. It’s been a hell of a busy last few weeks though! I can’t believe my wedding is in 9 days!!!

Yes it’s our wedding month June! I can’t believe it’s finally here! I got engaged on February 14, 2009. And now a year and 4 months later it’s finally here June! Oh my goodness. I must admit I’m pretty nervous. Being my own wedding consultant was one of the hardest (but most fulfilling) jobs I’ve ever had!
Now for the list:
Hair and make up trial
Have seamstress(my aunt) finish all 5 moh and bridesmaid dresses.
Have seamstress do the alterations for my dress
Buy some wedding jewelry
Buy Parents and attendants gifts
Print ceremony programs
Oh my goodness I feel like there’s more but I can’t think of anything else right now.
Congratulations all you June brides! This is our month it’s finally here!
