Tonight, clean the house, eat grilled cheese and tomato soup, drink wine and watch Bridesmaids.

Saturday, get a facial, pack up some decorations for the venue, and go to the beer garden.

Sunday, nurse hangover, breakfast with the future in-laws, pick up wine with fmil for rehearsal, fiancé and his dad will pick up his dad’s suit, finalize seating chart, email florist # of centerpieces, and email final count with meal selections to banquet coordinator.

Fun and productive, just the way I like my weekends…oh and no work, so bonus!

Have to put up drywall, mud, tape, and sand our kitchen, family room, bedrooms. Then need to lay cement board and green board to get ready to tile everything. Seriously just want to work on wedding stuff!!

@mshoagie  I like your list the best 🙂 

Friday – get the heck done with work and go order the hub’s wedding ring (yes ladies, I haven’t done that yet!) They assume me that they can get it in 5 days….. 

Make din-din with my man, watch something cheesy, maybe You’ve Got Mail? My favorite of ALL TIME


Saturday – Get this shellac mani OFF my nails – been on there for a good two weeks!

Liquor store – pick out the wine, buy the liquor for our full bar. 

Get to work on the DJ music list (and do NOT play list)

Purchase frames for parents gifts and pick out which e-photos we’re going to print

Visit my sis and make her some dinner while talking to her about the reading she’ll be doing at the ceremony.

Sunday -CLEAN the house and WEED the garden (NO FUN!) If I have time, I may venture to some craft stores. Looking for baggies for my Out of Town bags, favor boxes for chocolates, lil rocks for my “wishing rock” guest book and a card box or basket.

Whew! Who’s next?

Our list isn’t too bad but I definitely still have enough stuff to accomplish. This weekend we’re going to focus on…

  1. Build photo-booth: Fiance and his dad got most of the materials last night. They’re going to get the lumber tomorrow and hopefully knock the whole thing out in a few hours.
  2. Bolero fitting
  3. Make non-floral centerpieces: I actually did these last week but as soon as they were finished I realized that I never washed the glassware that I’ve been collecting from garage sales. So, this weekend I have to take everything apart, wash the glassware and reassemble. Thankfully they didn’t take too long in the first place so it shouldn’t be that bad.  
  4. Spray paint frames: We got the Ikea Tolsby frames to use for our table numbers/menus. Right now they’re white but we need them to be gold. I did a test run on a spare frame a while ago and it was a complete disaster. I really should enlist the help of someone with better spray painting skills so that I don’t destroy all of our frames.
  5. Bridal Party gifts: I have some of the stuff already but I have to finish buying everything else. 

Other than those things, all I have left is stuff that I can’t really do until right before anyways (buy pumpkins/gourds and put the ribbon and labels on the apple pie favors) so I think we’re in good shape. My goal is to be completely finished with everything by next weekend so I can coast into wedding week stress-free. Funny, right? lol
