THe biggest thing I have to do is finish making the coursages for the moms & grandmothers.  I’m making them fabric broaches and I only have about 3 left, so that’s not a big deal but they are taking longer than I originally thought…  I also need to finish bridesmaids’ gifts and then the week of the wedding I have lots of stuff to do, since I’m putting together all of the flowers myself.


Other than that, I’m pretty set…  besides packing for the honeymoon!  🙂

Still need to…

– finish designing, print, and assemble our programs

– finish writing our ceremony

– track down missing RSVPs

– do table assignments

Oh… and we still have to have our tasting!  We haven’t been in the same state as our wedding venue since last July, so our tasting will be happening 1 week before the wedding.  I sure hope we like the food, b/c there’s really no going back at this point. 

Good luck July brides!  We’re almost there!!!

The big thing we have to do is get a florist!  We also have to meet with the officiant and singer/dj, finalize the menu, buy the wine and get a dress for my only attendant.  The boys and groom need shoes too.  Lots of little details to occupy our last month!

I am having my one and only dress fitting this friday! Then we still have to take pictures for our table numbers, paint picture frame centerpieces, order favors, meet with the officiate a few times, burn a cd of all of our wedding music for our DJ, create mine and my dad’s song and I think that’s the majority of it ;]
