@sbruin99:  Hi date twin!

We’ve sent our invites too because it will require a hotel stay for a lot of people!

Things left for me:

Figure out our ceremony.

Pick father-daughter dance song.

Bathroom baskets.

Assemble favors.

@sbruin99:  I have options for father daughter but none picked yet!

We have plantable seed paper for our favor but also a pot like this


I want to do a signature frame or something different for a guestbook- undecided!

I still need to finalize ideas with my florist (which I have been procrastinating on because it’s SO MUCH) and we’re sending out invites in a couple weeks. Got the sample and I love it, luckily no issues, so just need to order them ๐Ÿ™‚ At this point I’m so tired of planning, I can’t wait for it to be over! I don’t understand brides who miss planning after the wedding.

@sbruin99:  Hey May brides!! I’m pretty much figuring this out all on my own as well. It looks like you have things pretty much together. I have just about everything covered. Do you have the toasting flutes and cake serving ware? Not to mention the little things. Like, personalized napkins. My invites are addressed and ready to go in the mail. (I too have a block of hotel rooms set aside for out-of-towners). I have everything for the center pieces, just need to put them together. Cake, dress, flowers, caterer, venue and groom! LOL

@sbruin99:  oh I get it! Ask a friend or family member that just recently got married to go through a checklist with you. I asked my Sis-in-law. She didn’t find anything I was missing but it helped to talk it through…. Start a final list and truly DO NOT cross it off until it is complete.

@sbruin99:  Also, I’ve learned nto to ask too many peoples opinion. I have come to find out I honestly don’t want it. I just tell people what I want and I make it happen. My Fiance and I are funding this wedding ourselves so we don’t get flooded with opinions and hurt feelings.

I’m May 3 and WOW is it getting close!  Just under 9 weeks for us!  I am surprisingly not stressed – though that’s been my attitude all along, so not I’m not surprised that I’m still pretty la-te-da about it.

We are finalizing things on the florist front this week, which is the last “big” thing.

Still left to do:

  • Guest book
  • Favors
  • Seating assignments
  • Mail invitations (next week  – with the printer now)
  • Welcome bags
  • BM/GM gifts
  • Programs
  • Figure out our exit
  • Get marriage license (just realized I think we can do this any time after tomorrow, as we’ll be 60 days out!)
  • Our first dance song / mother-son dance song
  • Select ceremony music / meet with church organist
  • Select any readings for the ceremony
  • Book hairstylist (MUA booked)
  • Buy some new undies to wear under my dress! ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Figure out transportation for wedding party from ceremony to reception
  • Order FI’s ring (already have mine)
  • Finalize honeymoon hotel bookings (flights are all booked)
  • Get some shots that are recommended for our honeymoon destination
  • Lose 10 lbs – ha!  This is what I’m most stressed about!  My dress fits as-is though, so if it happens, great, if not – whatever.  I fit in my dress.  If I did lose 10 lbs, I may have to get it taken in at the last minute, which would be a hassle.
