@LovelyLaura8:  Woo another May 4 bride! WOW I’m so behind! We have NOTHING planned for our ceremony! My church is being so calm about the situation and I’m like… LET’S GET A MOVE ON! I’m sure they are tired of me calling by now! I also just ordered my invites and cake yesterday, barely met with a caterer on Tuesday, and still have to order favors, centerpieces, and do a whole lot of DIY! What else do you have left?

Oy, let’s see:

revise budget for flowers/decor with planner

purchase headband/jewelry

apply for license

apply for passport

BMs need alterations

2nd fitting

wait for RSVPs and hopefully fill our room block (then order programs/favors after I have final guest count)

stress over hair and makeup (won’t have a trial until I’m in town the week or so before the wedding)

buy Flower Girl dress

Ahhhhh! I’m sure there is more…

@MissJuicy:  I don’t have anything planned for my ceremony yet either! No idea about music, vows, anything. We have a couple friends doing the music and one of them said he’s played at weddings before though, so I might just let him do whatever he wants so it’s one less thing to worry about.

I have sooo many things left to do:

-Invites are printed but I’m still waiting for my envelopes to get here. Need to print addresses on them and then assemble and mail out

-Figure out what insurance we need for the venue

-Had my hair trial already and it went great, but I’m looking for a sparkly comb or something to add to it. Also need to find earrings.

-Finish sewing my veil

-Build and decorate a ceremony backdrop

-iPod playlist for the cocktail hour, dinner, and band breaks

-Decide what we’re doing for dessert. I think I’m going to get a simple two tier cake for us to cut and then buy a bunch of different cakes for the guests. Which means I need to come up with multiple cakestands.

-Escort cards??? I have the feeling I’ll ditch the idea of doing something cute and just buy some generic ones at Michael’s.

-Burn our CD favors and decorate the sleeves

-Collect bottles for our DIY centerpieces. Figure out where we’re going to buy flowers from.

-Finalize a menu. Then figure out how we’re going to display it–chalkboard? frames at each table?

-Book a hotel room for the wedding night

And probably a million other little things I’m forgetting. At least the honeymoon is all booked..the wedding might end up being a disaster but we’ll still get to spend a week lounging on the beach and drinking pina coloadas!

@LovelyLaura8:  I’m jealous that you’re done with invitations! I’m so ready to get them out the door.

My big day is closer to 3 months away (85 days, but who’s counting?), but I’ve had a very productive month already!  Got DIY invitations/rsvp cards/maps/labels all printed out and put together.  Ordered festive stamps, too!

Left to do? Meet with caterer to firm up menu.  Put together centerpieces and favors.  Get list of songs to brother’s Boyfriend or Best Friend, who is loading up his iPod for the ceremony and reception.  Find a shirt for Fiance to wear.  Then, wait patiently to marry the man of my dreams!

Best wishes to you all!

Not quite 2 months yet, but close!! We still have to:

-Make/finalize reception decor

– Send the DJ his deposit (although everything else is situated)

– Map out the ceremony!!

– Finalize the rehearsal dinner

– ORDER INVITATIONS!!!! Fiance will be home in about an hour, so that’s our goal for the night 🙂 Want to get them ordered tonight and sent out next week, if we can finagle it! Turnaround time isn’t long, thankfully
