  • Wedding: October 2013

I made a Google Doc to-do list to share with my family and fiance . . .and it has over 50 things on it Cry


I would say overall the biggest things are:

  • Apparel – dress alterations for me, suit alterations and ties for the groomsmen
  • Music – choose all key songs plus do not play list for DJ, take dance lessons for first dance
  • Arrange shuttle to/from the reception site
  • Make a final decision on videography
  • Detailed timeline
  • Misc details – programs, gift bags for out-of-towners, confirm final numbers with venue/caterer, etc.

There are a lot of other small details, but these are the big categories of things.  Good luck with your own final details!  It’s getting so close!

@MrsEME:  Order food, booze, and cake (week of wedding from BBC restaurant, liquor store, and Publix.) Print ceremonial marriage contract and the programs at UPS (waiting for confirmation that Bridesmaid or Best Man has booked his flight.) Make pocket squares for Groomsmen (waiting for confirmation that Groomsmen suits have actual pockets.) Make salon appointments for my mom and I. DIY bouquets and centerpiece flowers. Buy dress for October 6 shower.

I am pretty much done! Everyone is saying I’m super organised but I don’t feel that way…

– Pay final payments to photographer, caterer, and cake maker
– Get a few more decorations (having reception at home) and get an idea of how I want things set up
– Organise chair hire and possible marquee tent hire, mainly for caterer
– Start stocking up on beer, wine and soft drink/soda.
– Assemble my bouquet (latex flowers… wow that sounds kinky!)
– Make my memory charms for our “memorial tree”.
