We got our marriage license yesterday and I finally signed off on the final round of proofs for all our day-of paper goods.

On my list still:

-ordering cakes (we aren’t having a wedding cake – just multiple “normal” cakes)

-finalizing full day-of timeline

-confirming with all vendors

-figuring out what remaining balances are for all vendors and when they need to be paid

-send limo company schedule and list of addresses for pick ups

-email song list to DJ

-find non-ugly/non-tacky stickers for placecards to indicate entree selections

-seating chart (RSVPs due this Friday)

-submit meal choices to venue

Other than little tiny details that’s about it. I think (hope) we are in a good place and can cruise through to the wedding day with minimal stress levels.

I’m was excited until last weekend.  Now I wish I could call it off. I hate my in-laws and they are making me sick at this point. 

The only tasks I have to do are:

  • Meeting musicians for ceremony
  • Seating chart
  • Send final numbers to florist/caterer
  • Make card box

@nskillet: We’re using the same designer/printer who did our invites. Invites were letterpress, but he was able to do all the day-of stationery as flatprinted items that match our invitation suite.
