I was dreading this post.  I’m so stressed about getting things done.  I’ll be almost nonstop working the next few weeks.  

Left to do:

-Paint our cake topper

-Make our Thank You sign for pictures

-Order little things like napkins and bubbles

-Finish getting the vases for the centerpieces

-Buy votives for centerpieces

-Buy fabric markers and a basket for our guestbook (handkerchiefs that we’ll make into a quilt)

-Set up the Ipod for the ceremony music

-Reserve the chairs (hopefully next week)

-Buy the flower petals for the aisle

-Reserve a nail appointment

-Hair and makeup trial (hopefully on February 5)

-Reserve transportation (optional but would be nice)

-Buy ties for the guys

-Have my dress bustled and pressed (it already fits perfectly so that’s all I need done)

-Buy/engrave wedding bands (I have his picked out, just have to order it and mine will be around mid-January that we have the appointment to custom make one but he said it’d be done by mid-February)

-Figure out the favors/groom’s cake with the bakery

-Decide on our cake flavors and design

-Meet the officiant (we’re out of town so hopefully the end of the month will allow time for this)

-Mail our invitations (about to order the stamps so they should be out next week)


I hate having so much to do and everything being at least an hour and a half to two hours away.

@Nola: A lot of the shopping can be done here.  But I know I need to travel for some of it.  Writing it out actually makes it look more doable than thinking about it.  If I can get the bigger things done (invitations, chairs, transportation, and rings) then I will be home free and can get through the rest no problem.

I’m trying so hard to get all the big appointments made and all of the big stuff done.  I feel so much closer until I realize I have a bunch of little things to do although I know those won’t take nearly as much time.  Hopefully our stamps will come within the next couple of days so I can mail out the invitations by Friday.  And I should have the chair rentals taken care of by next week.  I did contact the girl that’s doing my hair and makeup and she said the hair and makeup trial as well as my final hair cut before the wedding will more than likely work on February 5 so that’s exciting.  Also, I contacted a few different transportation companies (hoping for a carriage to bring me up to the aisle and take us to the reception venue) as well as sent out an email about doing our cake tasting (one of two) at the end of the month and getting the consultation out of the way through email.

@Nola: Yeah we just got the quotes back and $600 for two hours for our $6-7K budget is a large portion so we probably won’t be doing a carriage.  And we’re probably doing mini apple pies for our favors.  They don’t really fit anywhere besides that they’re so cute and sound so good.
