Only a few more weeks month twins! What all still needs to be done?
Here is my list:
Buy plates, forks, napkins for cake table (for some reason my venue doesn’t supply these)
Wrap wedding party gifts
Finish aisle decor
Put together bathroom baskets
And thats it! We are getting so close ladies! 25 days for me, what about you?

I just called this morning and blocked some hotel rooms.
We still need to work on the final guest count and seachart chart, print placement cards, meet with the venue for our detailing, buy bridal party gifts. We also still need to print the programs.
I feel like there is more I can’t remember.

Oh man I feel like there is so much to do! I’m a teacher and I have a few weeks left of school so I’m not really worrying about a lot of this stuff ’til then. Also a ton of it is literally just ordering online which I’ve been waiting for money to come in to do!

@MmeVT: Have you decided how you are painting your cornhole game? I can’t figure out if it should be wedding-y or not!

@CPearson1016: We actually made two sets! We are doing chevron on the top (which matches wedding stuff) and then a solid bottom with a silhouette of our dog on one and our cat on the other. Using these instructions. The other one will be silhouettes of our two states of origin. But we will see if this actually fully happens!!
But yea I wanted something not too wedding-y as you say! We might put our last initial/name on there some place and maybe the “Est’d. 7/26/2013” thing.

@MmeVT: Thats more the length my list looks like… perhaps a bit longer XD
I have been having trouble motivating myself to do much wedding-related stuff lately.. just want it to all be done and be on the plane with my husband…

@iBDancinPretty: It’s required by my venue. Actually I can say this is now checked off the list because my FFIL is adding a rider to his policy for the day! It’s not officailly done done but now it’s his task to complete!
@EmeraldTiger: That makes me feel a bit better! I know there are a million little things I’m missing too. But I figure if I can’t think of it now then it’s probably not that big of a deal if it doesn’t happen…

This time last year I forgot all about picking out a cake! I went literally a week or so before my wedding!
Oh and I needed a tossing garter…
Post # 15
Omg I am so so so excited. My veil is coming in today and I’m picking out flowers.
I still need to get in touch with the cake maker again, I’m waiting on RSVPS still and I need to lose 3 pounds in just as many weeks. I am just so excited.
I need to Finalize decor and a program.
Get kids activties.
Reception sign and table numbes need to be printed.
BM and GM gifts.
The menu needs to be finalized with my family who is catering and I need to figure out how to get music in for the walking down the aisle and the first dance etc.
Then I need to have a music playlist for the after party which will be more like a traditional reception. I am just so excited. So so excited. 🙂
