Yes spending allot of money is in the plans for this next month. I am hoping to accomplish the majority of things left to do this weekend:

Finalize music choices & timeline for the dj.

Order the flowers for the centerpieces from costco.

Type up & print programs.

Buy wedding party favors (Tried last weekend but, it is a little harder to find suitable gifts than i thought).

Drop off the cupcake liners & ribbons to the caterer.

Buy a net & balloons for our ballon drop during the first dance.

Buy a videocamera so someone can videotape the ceremony for us.

Call guests who have not rsvp’s yet & do a seating plan.

Finish my vow.

Book in my dress to be steam cleaned (week before wedding)

Buy liquor & lisence (week of wedding)

Hopefully i can have this list down to two items after the weekend. SO excited. Not really nervous. Getting a little stressed over getting these last minute things done.

I am in shock that there is only 1 month left!!!!

I have to work on the programs and favours first.

We are still trying to finalize our guest list, but the seating plan will be next on the list.

I still need to get jewelry for myself and have a hair trial.

Bachelorette party is next weekend though – I’m looking forward to that!!!!

And of course, I should start writing out the checks 🙁 Its sad to part with all this money in such a short period of time!

Finalize song choices for DJ.
Create seating chart.

Go for hair trial.

Good luck to all of us!

20 days!

Starting my tanning on Tuesday (late start), teeth whitening on Wednesday, getting my trial hair done Thursday. I have to make my tissue paper flowers. Booked a honeymoon B&B last week. Ordering cookies Monday for our cookie buffet which we’re using as favors. I’m so stinking excited. There’s still a ton of stuff to do but I’m looking forward to all of it.
