Oh yay you’re a March bride too! I’m pretty much done. Except I’m adding a sash to my wedding dress, so I have to take that up to the bridal shop, & I have to find my bridesmaids some shoes to wear. I’m having trouble with that! I have to pick out an officiant but my wedding planner is making it easy. So, not much more to do!!

2 more months!!!! πŸ™‚

Wow, you guys are so ready, I’m totally not! Still need to finish and mail the invitations – trying to get it done by this weekend.

– need to make pomanders

-deciding on tuxes this weekend – Fiance is going for his fitting.

– I still have 2 bridesmaids that have not ordered their dresses!

– need to print kids activity books and assemble their baskets

– still deciding if I want personalized napkins or not

In a nutshell still so much to do!!

Vistagirl – Yes!! I am so worried about the weather!! Houston is usually warm by March, but you can never really tell. It will change from one weekend to the next. This winter has been so unusually cold, I hope it does NOT stick around! I’m starting to wish I wasn’t so stubborn and booked the wedding in April or May. πŸ˜‰

@Miss: Oh my goodness! Your girls better get on the ball with ordering those dresses! And actually, I haven’t sent out the invites yet..I forgot to mention that! I’m doing that the end of this month πŸ™‚

I’m somewhat worried about the weather! I hope hope hope it’s nice!

Lees4308 – Oh I know!! I was on them and on them and most of them (there are 6) got it done and one did have to rush order it. The two left, one is my oldest friend and the other is her daughter. She is supposed to get them this week, but I am so worried that they will not be able to get it in time. What do you do in that situation? Are they just not in the wedding anymore? I wouldn’t be that heart broken as our relationship has become very distant in the 2 1/2 years (!) I’ve been engaged…but I’d feel bad about her daughter. I’ve watching this little girl grow up and she’s a sweetie and so excited about it.

Phew! I know its probably not a big deal that I didn’t get the invites out by the new year like I wanted, but my RSVP date is Feb. 1 so I want to get them out with at least 1-2 weeks of that date! πŸ™‚

Let’s see, I/we still have to:

Find a florist (I only need 1 bouquet and 1 bout, so no biggie)

Order my veil

Choose a headband

Get my dress altered! It’s coming in in February, good thing it’s short…

Buy Fiance a suit/tie

Get my wedding band made (getting done this week!)

Hire fancy car to drive us day-of

Choose menu at reception venue

And other little things like a strapless bra and a wedding purse.

I can’t believe we’re almost at the two month mark!  (And I guess some March brides already are!)

We need to print our programs – I’m going crazy waiting for my SIL to determine if my niece will really be our flower girl or not.  I’d like to print them and get them over with!

It’s easier to say what we HAVE done:

– Secured a venue

– Bought a dress

– Ordered invites


Yeah. That’s about it. Narrowing down the event package which will include the DJ, musicians, lighting, centerpieces, flowers, photographer, videographer, photobooth. All in one signature! I’ll feel a lot better after that signature.

Then we gotta choose the menu. And the tux. And my shoes, etc. And do hair/makeup.

And plan the honeymoon. And find an apartment to move into.
