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

Ours is

– 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!

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!

@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!
