What do you have to do before May?

Start on a ton of DIY stuff (Oot bags, placecards, table numbers, etc), figure out ceremony music and readings.  Final dress fitting, and book shuttle for guests.

What are you wearing on your wedding day apart from your wedding gown?

A flower fascinator, a veil, wedge shoes, pretty earrings and I think my sisters bracelet.  Ooh and I bought some cute undies from VS in my wedding colors (also works as a something blue!)

Did you purchase your wedding bands?

Yes, purchased them a few weeks ago and just picked them up.

Did you send your invites? If no, when will you send? If yes, have you received any replies?

Yes, sent out April 4.  Received first batch of replies yesterday, hoping for a bunch more today!

Are you planning to change your name after getting married?

66 days left!!! HOLY MOLY!!! lol

 

What do you have to do before May?

BEFORE May?  All we really have to do is finalize our menu with the vendor.  I have a bunch of details to go over IN May, but that’s after we get all our RSVP’s back and stuff.  Not much we can do until then!

My veil, ivory shoes, my blue garter, my undergarments (lol) and some pretty jewelry πŸ™‚

Did you purchase your wedding bands?

Yes, about 2 months ago

Did you send your invites? If no, when will you send? If yes, have you received any replies?

We sent ours the last week in March…we already have 40+ yes’s!!! No no’s yet! 

Are you planning to change your name after getting married?

Yes, definitely.  Although, i’m not looking forward to that whole process! There’s a lot of stuff to change and it seems very annoying! lol

What do you have to do before May?

Oh my… E-pics, hair trial, decide on hair/mu person, review flower contract, decide on favors, buy unity sand (possibly a new vase as well), apply for/pickup marriage license, make guest list for bridal shower, exchange one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and mail it to Canada (again), finalize design for cake table, buy cake serving tools, find plexi-glass for cake table.  And I’ve probably already run out of time to have a chi pao made… (I’m saving the music selection/ceremony reading/place cards/seating layout/tea set rental or purchase for May).

What are you wearing on your wedding day apart from your wedding gown?

Red D’Orsey kitten heels, still trying to decide on undergarments (maybe just the black bustier I already have), a hair flower (assuming I get around to making it), and a fingertip veil (assuming I get around to dying the fabric).  I was originally going to wear a gold necklace I got from my Mother-In-Law but the beading on my dress looks really silver…  I may have to rethink that…

Did you purchase your wedding bands?

Yes!  Yay, something accomplished!

Did you send your invites? If no, when will you send? If yes, have you received any replies?

No…. But they are supposed to go out this week.

Are you planning to change your name after getting married?

Yes.  I want to share a last name with our kids.  And I’m already frustrated enough spelling my last name out to want to subject my kids to spelling out a hyphenated name.

A veil (either long/cathedral or short/lace edge) – shoes – dangly earrings & a bracelet which I am YET to find!

What do you have to do before May?

Mail the invites, get FI’s ring, send the licensing requirements to the friend that will officiate, and finalize my shoe choice!

What are you wearing on your wedding day apart from your wedding gown?

This is all up in the air for me!  I will be wearing a necklace designed by a good friend – she’ll when she sees my dress in May.  I’ll *probably* be wearing pearl stud earrings. I will most likely be wearing dyeable d’orsay shoes with a 3 inch heel, dyed either teal or eggplant, possibly with a shoe clip of some kind. I hope to get some kind of hair ornament.

Did you purchase your wedding bands?

We have mine already because it is an heirloom. We have to get my Fiance sized before we can order his.

Did you send your invites? If no, when will you send? If yes, have you received any replies?

I hope to in the next few days! I’m waiting on info from one person before I can send them all out.

Are you planning to change your name after getting married?

Nope!

Get FIs ring & attire, order the guys ties, keep chugging on my tissue paper extravaganza, sit down with the florist, finalize music selections, write our ceremony (probably most of May for that!), put together my table numbers, finalize the dessert table.

Orange Nina Culver (that I had before the dress!), have my bustier, need some undies… need a hair flower and some jewelry.

Mine came in this week (love it!, yay Gemvara!) but we need to get Fiance to a store to be remeasured so we can order his finally.

What do you have to do before May?

It seems like there is still tons of stuff haha.  We have to work on our ceremony and vows, tons of DIY stuff (programs, escort cards, etc.), and pick out our music.  Also have a fitting for next weekend and maybe a hair trial.

What are you wearing on your wedding day apart from your wedding gown?

Champagne gold sandals, a two tiered fingertip veil with a curly edge, necklace earrings and bracelet (to be decided).  Also may have some crystal stuff to put in my hair.  May carry a red clutch around as well. 

Did you purchase your wedding bands?

Yep!  Had those for a while, haha.  One of the first details I wanted to shop for! 

Did you send your invites? If no, when will you send? If yes, have you received any replies?

Yep, sent them out a few weeks ago.  Have about 23 responses, and our deadline is May 18th, so we still have a while!

Are you planning to change your name after getting married?

Nope, I’m going to keep my name.  Partly out of laziness, but I like my last name right now and it seems more me.  May consider hyphenating in later though!

Ok…I’ll play too πŸ™‚

What do you have to do before May?

Just put deposit down on rehearsal dinner and ordered those invites.  Need to make spa reservations for my bridesmaids and make a list of things to finalize (payments, headcounts, etc.)

What are you wearing on your wedding day apart from your wedding gown?

Not much πŸ˜‰  A big flower hairpiece, earrings, and shoes.  And of course some tiny undies!

Did you purchase your wedding bands?

Yes…that’s been done for a long time.  Fiance is using an heirloom ring, so we had that fixed up a bit and mine was custom made (just a plain platinum band, so nothing fancy).

Did you send your invites? If no, when will you send? If yes, have you received any replies?

Sent them out a few weeks ago…got about half our replies.  Awaiting the other half by the end of the month. 

Are you planning to change your name after getting married?

This is something that Fiance feels very strongly about, so yes.  It’s gonna be a pain-in-the-butt on my part though, so I’m not looking forward to it :-/
