My bachelorette was yesterday.

Tomorrow is my second fitting.

I need to get a last haircut this week, and I’ll get a mani/pedi the Thursday before. Need the final tally from the caterer and to write him a big fat check. Otherwise I can’t really think of anything else that needs to be done! Sweet.

Argh, it’s tough to realize there’s only 12 days left.

I need to work on our ceremony script, send a deposit to our officiant, finish the menus, programs, and favors.

People keep offering to help, but I don’t know what I could let them do, especially the out-of-state ones. Really, how can you help me from Florida?

I am doing all paper products this week and finalizing the seating chart. I’ve decided to forgo Out of Town bags, bathroom baskets and favors because I don’t think they are worth the trouble! We also have to finish buying presents and PACK this weekend!! 🙂

I have a bunch of little things to do, and I feel like I’m gonna forget something!  I hate that feeling.  My blackberry is in my hand at all times so I can enter a new to-do to the list and to make sure I don’t miss one of the to-do’s I already programmed.  And because technology can fail, I also have it written in a notebook, which I’m constantly checking- I’m sick 🙂

Here’s what I have to do, in no particular order:

bachelorette party (June 5)
spray tan
hair color and trim
finish wedding songs
meet with DJ, pay DJ
finalize with officiant, pay officiant
finalize with photographer
finalize with videographer, pay videographer
finalize with stylist
finalize with florist
final dress fitting
paint design on aisle
re-dip and clean ring
write out placecards… which means track down the MIA rsvps
give copies of all contracts to my ‘bad cop’ who happens to be my aunt, just in case
write out thank you cards for vendors, add gratuity
pack day of bags, 1 for me, 1 for the banquet hall
wrap my FI’s gifts
wrap gifts for parents
buy brothers gifts
buy some stuff for the honeymoon
pack for the honeymoon
finish seating chart

Oh boy, seems like A LOT!
