I am next to positive I am forgetting something!! I had planned on doing several DIY projects that have been scrapped to save my sanity (although my mom keeps coming up with MORE projects WTF!!!!)

To Do:

-OOT bags

-Bathroom baskets

-wedding license

-finish getting/wrap wedding party gifts

-menus (will do after I get a final count on RSVP)

-confirmation w vendors

-practice makeup application (doing myself)/ make trial hair appt

-get dress hem & bustled

-dye crinoline

-talk with photographer about ‘must have’ shots

-decide on 2 signature drinks for coctail hour/ make signs for bar

-decorate card box

-finalize rehearsal dinner menu/time

I just typed up a rough draft of the timeline of events this evening. I’m going to refrain from sending it out until after my MOH’s wedding in 2 weekends so I don’t freak her out haha.

PHEW!! I feel like there’s more to do! Like any other bride, I just want to have this all go out without a hitch.
