Oh July Ladies, many of us are now under the 100 day mark AND us early ones under 3 months! I just made my lists of To-Dos for the next month or so and feel like I’m in a whirlwind! Slight panic is starting, no matter how many months you have (I had 20 to plan) there are still things left undone and those you cannot do until a few months before! Deep breaths, where’s my yoga mat?!?!?! lol

Thanks for the reminder about bouquet charms I totally forgot I made some for friends who were brides and i’m making four for myself (grandparents) and one for my Future Sister-In-Law for her grandmother. Trying to figure out if I want to put some of my charms on my sister/niece and cousins bouquets…. Cause four on mine would be a lot….

@luckyduckinlove:  Yeah if I was going to do one for all the people I’ve lost it’d be a lot I’d have 5 on mine but felt that having one of my dad would be the most significant. I do like the idea of giving them to others, Future Mother-In-Law lost her fiance 2 years ago before they were supposed to get married so maybe I can figure something out for him.

1) organise music (iPod reception)

2) complete BMs gifts  except for choc and booze for survival kits but I don’t wanna eat or drink them hehe

3) engrave GMs gifts – found a place to do vinyl stickers instead to customise more – a work in progress…

4) invitations

5) I-spy cards for the tables

6) place cards and table numbers

7) PAY for it all

8) buy lingerie for wedding and honeymoon πŸ˜‰ – just about to order honeymoon stuff online thou πŸ™‚

9) E-pics need to be done next month

10) Choose our cake flavour πŸ™‚ – unfortunately our cake maker was in a car accident the night before our tasting (she is ok) we just haven’t had time to schedule this again yet, and obviously it is more important that she was/is ok than us getting cake πŸ™‚

Newly added πŸ™
 
11) Alter FIs suit
 
12) get lollies for bonbonieres
 
13) buy bubbles for guests
 
Hopefully that’s it πŸ™‚ I am bugging Fiance by writing endless lists – even down to what each of us will “be in charge of on the day” ie he is doing rings and iPod, I am cameras and bubbles… A lot more but you get the point – Fiance kinda just smiles in a “oh no” way when I get myexercise book out cos he knows I have remembered something else hehehe
