Burn ceremony music to disc

Talk to dj about reception music

Buy a sign for the wedding favor table (maybe)

Count RSVPs as they come in




To be fair, I have a great wedding coordinator that helped a ton.

  • Wedding: October 2015

Our wedding isn’t until the end of October (24th) so I am a little more behind than some of you ladies.

  • We have to order our invitations (I designed them myself, I just need to make sure the direction card is accurate- want to do that this weekend)
  • I need to get gifts for bridesmaids/groomsmen
  • We need to finalize some of our music selections
  • We need to order our wedding bands
  • We need to get our marriage license
  • I am making the favors, and I still need to finish that (I am throwing pots on the wheel and turning them into candles)
  • Any other decorations for the wedding
  • Set up a seating chart once RSVP’s come in
  • Create wedding welcome bags for out of town guests

A lot of my wedding is heavily DIY (including many of the desserts), so it will be interesting in these next couple of months to see how soon I can get everything done.

  • Wedding: October 2015

Just sent out invites today, cannot wait to start getting them back. Last week I went to get alterations for the dress, found a veil, finalized my bouquet with the florist, and found wedding shoes. I have a hair trial tomorrow. I still need to get parents/wedding party gifts, finishing up the DIY decorations, get the girls together to get bridesmaid dresses from the bridal shop (just got the call that they are finally in), have final meeting with pastor, meet with photographer and DJ one last time, book rehearsal dinner venue, and get the rest of the grooms men to measure for tuxes. I will have my bridal shower in 2 weeks. I cannot wait! I’ve been having so much fun preparing for the wedding. I’ll be sad when it ends.

  • Wedding: October 2015 - The Vineyard and Winery at Lost Creek, VA

October 3 bride here 🙂

our BIG thing is the DJ- playlist

We have started to get our RSVP’s in and I’ve been doing seating charts as they come in.  We had our menu tasting last week which I am SO excited about!

We still have to order the wine (mandatory case number per table) since our venue is a vineyard, and buy the alcohol for the bar.

My Fiance hasn’t thought of a single gift for his groomsmen (and best lady?) while I just have to package the gifts in a cutsey manner

We do have to meet with our officiant again and put the ceremony together – it will be short and non-denominational so that shouldn’t be too difficult, but I think otherwise we are set

two days before the wedding I am picking up our favors (Macarons since we got engaged in Paris) and I’ll have to package those up…..


Oh – our engagement pictures will be done next saturday. since we didn’t do Save the Dates – we didn’t need them way in advance and at this point it’s really just a photoshoot to get familiar with our photographer


I think that’s it?I feel like I’m forgetting something really important, but I have

Brdesmaids and groomsmen dresses/suits



officiant who will do license and filing etc

favors and gifts

hairtrial and makeup trial done and booked

hotel booked

honeymoon booked


any ideas what I’m forgetting?
