Hi! I have to decide menu (and make them), programs, finish strassing my shoes, napkin rings, and settle on music. I also have to mock up centerpieces. Its so much to do. I also have to buy plates, glasses, and silverware.

So much to do with only a month left. Tongue out

I’m so excited!!! We still have a ton to do and I’m losing an entire week being out of town, but here goes with my “to do’s”:

Have escort cards printed
Download music for special dances
Create welcome bags
Have jewelry cleaned
Talk with all my vendors to finalize all details, payments, etc
Seating Chart
Figure out who will be using the lot to park (there are only 30 spots)
Complete fittings
Make candy (part of bridal party gifts)
Purchase alcohol
Call remaining 6 people who have not yet RSVP’d
Determine our picture locations and list

The list does go on, but it gets a little tedious. So much to do!!!

  • give final head count
  • wash and iron chair sashes that I bought
  • seating chart
  • final fittings for both dresses
  • finish some signage for directions to the golf course
  • print out postcards for our mailbox guestbook

Wow I think that’s about it!!!

I can’t believe it’s so close!  26 days!  We still have so much to do (at least in my opinion).

Here’s our current list:

-Make the cake topper

-Purchase the wine and beer

-Make bunting flag banners

-Finish the boutonierres 

-Create the reception playlist

-Make a mock-up of the centerpiece (I have it in my head and the materials are there–just haven’t put it all together yet)

-Put together welcome packets for my grandparents cabin

-Make signs and descriptions for the cheese bar

-Purchase hot hands and get some blankets together for the “warming station”

-Rent a second tent for the ceremony

-Wrap bridal party presents

Currently, these are all the projects I can think of, but I’m sure there’s more!
