Anyone have a list of things they need to do this month? Mine are as follows…
- Hair and Make up Trial
- Assembly of invites
- ordering my photo canvasas of past generations of wedding and grandparents who are not longer with us.
- Finalizing my program wording!
- And running my first 5k but i suppose that’s not TOTALLY wedding related!

Hello to 2 date twins! @ Ashco– Good luck in your first 5k! I am a runner who has (finally) worked my way up to marathons and half marathons (thinking about signing up for a half marathon in May just so I have something other than the wedding to obsess over!). Once you start running, you can’t stop!!
My March to-do is getting massive! Here is a sampling…
-We still need to find an officiant, which is proving much harder than I anticipated
– Sign contract for bus from reception to hotel
-Finish assembling DIY invites and send out invites by end of March
-Schedule Tasting with reception venue
-Figure out where we are going on our honeymoon
-1st dress fitting
-Schedule hair and make up appointments for wedding day

– Find an officiant (ugh… this has been my least favorite and most difficult part)
– Approve proof, get and sent invites
– Book Tuxes
– Pick up my wedding band
– start making FI’s band (I’m machining it out of titanium)
– Hair Trial
– Put together Direction and staying here sheets to go out with the invites…
– Probably several other items that I’m forgetting about…

@amaroo24– First, you are MAKING your Fiance wedding band?! That si awesome!
Also, I totally agree about finding an officiant! I had not anticipated how hard and how expensive this task was going to end up being!

I was last june, but in march all I could think about was invitations!
We also did our pre-marital counseling, booked our honeymoon, and did our tastings!
Good luck! 🙂

I’m shocked to say that I don’t have much to do this month! Crazy huh? I want to get all of my invitations done so I don’t have to scramble to finish them before I send them out in April. I do have a few payments to make, I got the reminders that the 90 day mark is approaching. Writing those big checks kills us a little bit everytime. I’m still waiting for my veil to come in so hopefully I can go pick that up this month too! Everything else is pretty much done or has to wait until closer to the day. Yikes!

Ok… this list is getting ridiculous! And it’s making me nervous!

@MsTerrapin, i offered to purchase one for FH. But he thinks it is cool that I can machine metal and have access to a shop with the tools necessary (having a couple of machinests and friends who have done this helps too). It should be fun!
