I just posted mine in the March to-do list, but I totally forgot one item:
1) purchase wedding rings. The Fiance is having trouble deciding what he wants, especially which metal. He’s basically waiting for someone to convince him to get white gold instead of platinum.

I have to purchase rings too! We haven’t even begun to look and my Fiance keeps saying it’s fine, it’s fine. Sheesh! LOL.

dancergmu3 – we only went looking for wedding rings once so far. We got my engagement ring from a friend of a friend who’s a jewelry designer and works with a bench jeweler. But she doesn’t have a large selection for Fiance to try on, she mostly works with catalogs and helps you decide what you’re looking for. We’ll go back to her for the wedding rings, but he needs to decide if his heart is really set on platinum by then.

*paint monogram on aisle
*repaint giftbox because my cat thought he should pee on it… awesome.
*paint shepherd’s hooks and make pomanders for them
*take flower girl to get shoes and jewerly
I have a lot of other projects I might do, but I really don’t want to. Things like programs, DIY favors. I should decide on that in April too. Yikes.

My number one goal is to get the invites out!
I have everything purchased for my maids except a pair of earrings, but my Fiance needs to get the groomsmen gifts.
I will proabably meet with the hall to talk about food and timeline.. not meeting with the dj till about a month out.
I also have a dress fitting at the end of april.
Ceremony music is done, I have to finish finding my jewelry & get shapewear for under my dress (if i decide i want it…)
I need to get parents gifts too.
Done with the florist, programs are designed, need to get a final look for the escort cards… my invites are taking forever though!

Here’s my April to do – keeps getting bigger, especially now that I’ve read what other people lists and it seems I was missing some items that need to get done. Umm also I think I may need to delegate some stuff.
- Meet w/venue coordiator to go over her proposal for day of design of ceremony and reception.
- Schedule Hair trial and appointments for myself and BM’s
- Update registries – Grrr to Macy’s, almost everything we added in Nov/Dec has gone on sale and then fallen off of our registry. We had 200+ items that is now down to 98.
- Write up ceremony/vows
- Grooms and Groomsmen tuxes
- Address and send invites
- MOB and Future Mother-In-Law dresses
- Give photos to brother for slide show
- Make ring pillow and garter
- Prepare guest book quilt and instructions
- 1st Dress fitting
- Start gathering materials for kids table

Oh my gosh! Thank you for this! I have been lost at what I should be doing right now… although it looks like I am figuring it out because I seem to be in the same place as you! I literally just copied all your lists onto a word document and then edited it down to what I need to do.
