Oooh my god I still need to:

 

– Finalize music selection

– Finalize ceremony formatting

– Write vows

– Finally decide on ring engraving and then get FI’s ring sized (he’s been sized, they just need to actually do the work to fit it – luckily our jeweler is a saint!)

– Waiting on follow up on RSVPs (we’ve had a great response rate, but our due date is May 1 so we still have time)

– Get at least one more bathing suit and a dress or two for the honeymoon

– Email photographers our list of shots

– Finalize mani/pedi times for BMs 

– Print programs

– Send final payments to vendors

 

And I swear there’s more!!!

16 days out! My list is:

Get in touch with the piano player at the church!

Pay the vendors

DIY the flowers the day before

Finish the honey favors

@Kelsikay:  I don’t know for sure if etiquette rules you give tips at the actual wedding, or if mailing them after the fact is okay. I am going to give mine out the night of the wedding, because we are having a destination wedding, and it just seemed easier to me to give them out then and not have to worry about them afterwards.
