Marriage license!  I was planning on getting it next week and then found out that the only times their offices are open are M-F, 8-4.  And we both work during those times.  So I emailed the office and they said that they can do the whole thing by mail, but it takes at least three weeks.  So I am very glad we jumped on this because we are really only five weeks away!  🙂

Good call rachel leigh!  We actually secretly eloped in January so that’s not an issue for us but I’ve heard of it being a problem for others.

Does anyone have a favorite checklist to use?  I’ve used Martha’s and Project Wedding but still feel like I’m missing something!!!

I agree, I have gone over the lists on a bunch of sites and still feel like there is something I am completely forgetting…

I like Martha’s list but I hat ehow much she leaves for May.  So I am already working on the to-do’s for May.  So far, I am at:

Bathroom baskets. 

Going to start our OTT bags – our block room rate runs out on Saturday so I can get a count then.

Sent out our Thank Yous from the shower

Starting ceremony organza flowers DIY project

Started confirming needs with vendors.

What are you all doing?

Wow, Christy – I thought we were having a short engagement since we got engaged on Christmas and are getting married one day before you! You are brave – but I think it’s awesome! Don’t let yourself get too overwhelmed, just one task at a time and try to do all the “big” ones first Smile

Def. good call on the marriage license, rachel!

Did you make your rehersal dinnner plans?

I am trying to wrap up any projects I can this month (like favors, OOT bags, purchase of candle decorations, finalize ceremony and vendor confirmations) so that next month, it can be smooth sailing and hopefully not have to worry about a thing!

Keep your lists coming though so none of us forgets a thing!

Make sure you pack a bag for the hotel (if you are staying in one) My friend didn’t remember until after the reception in the parking lot of her hotel so all she had was her super comfortable mermaid style wedding dress and her new hubby!
