  • Book trials for makeup and hair

Dress & Accessories – 

  • Get undergarments

  • Choose men’s tuxes
  • Schedule fittings

Details I can’t figure out a category for – 

  • Find/order band for FH
  • Get marriage license
  • Decide on a seating chart (probably not doing escort cards)
  • Bridesmaids gifts, parents gifts, etc.
  • Book hotel room for night before and night of wedding
  • Make the Meet the Maids/Men printouts
  • Get photos printed for cocktail decorations/order frames
  • Insure my wedding band
  • Figure out food for hotel “after party”

  • Schedule tastings/finalize menu
  • Order extra sheet cake/find figurine for cake decoration
  • Get a “toss” garter
  • Get a pair of dancin’ shoes
  • Fill in DJ list
  • Decide on signature drink/make signs

We still have a ton to do as well, but it’ll get done before the big day!! We still have to design our invitations, plan the rehearsal dinner (doing that this weekend), do a tasting for the reception and decide on the menu, im currently working on the ceremony decorations. We still have to decide on the music for special dances and the cermony music. We started planning our ceremony this past weekend and we ordered our toasting flutes and cake cutter/server. Our flowers are picked out and set to go. I already did my makeup trial, but I still have to do my hair trial (I’m planning on doing that at the end of next month) My jewelry is picked out (just have to buy it) and my hair piece and veil is picked out and bought. My wedding shoes are already bought as well. We already bought our wedding bands. The list is certianly intimidating but just think of everything that you’ve already accomplished!! Less then 4 months now!
