Shower and bachelorette party with my PA peeps! I will also have my hair/makeup trial while I’m there too.

The invitations are out now, so I expect to start receiving some RSVP’s that will keep me busy for a while.

I also need to start shipping things up to the hotel where the wedding will be.

@jivet:  I agree about all the stuff! I have folder for all the stuff pertaining to the wedding like lists and receipts but most of the time I feel so disorganized! And on top of all this we are moving right before the wedding!

Hmmm…. I have lots and lots of lists to make. Lists of songs, lists of posed photos, etc.

This month:

  • Buying rings (yay done!)
  • Finalizing ceremony – just have to pick a reading and ask for a small logistic change (groomsmen and bridesmaids walk down together)
  • Finalize all the music
  • Print programs
  • Cupcake tasting
  • Finalize all the details with the venue (number of tables, where everything will be setup, when vendors arrive, who does setup/takedown, etc.)
  • Make table name cards (5 out of 10 done!)
  • Keep track of RSVP’s (already have a little over half with 3 weeks to go)
  • Final dress fitting (done! Dress is stashed away until the wedding)
  • Take engagement photos
  • Figure out day of timeline
  • Book hair appointments (just have to decide on the time)
  • Go with the bridesmaids for their alterations and shoes/accessories
  • Go get matching ties for fiance and groomsmen
  • Book honeymoon (still havent picked a location lol)

I know there’s more… but I’ll just let that be the list for now. It makes it easier to cross off if I think I have less to do.

-Finalize ceremony and send copy to officiant

-Purchase wedding band for Fiance

-Purchase shower host gift for my Maid/Matron of Honor and aunt

-buy thank you cards for shower (its in May)

-work on do not play list, father/daughter, finalize processional music, cocktail hour playlist
