I love these to-do list updates… helps me get my head on straight! My August to-do list looked like this:

  • Block off hotel rooms for guests
  • Print reserved signs for reception tables
  • Print cards for the MOB/MOG gifts
  • Pick up guestbook from photographer
  • Purchase matching frames for the “Meet the Maids” table at bridal shower
  • Spray pomander stands for ceremony decor (this idea has changed)
  • Stuff invitations to be mailed September 1
  • &… the most exciting… I’m taking my Maid/Matron of Honor to an overnight trip to have our makeup done and purchasing our “day of” makeup for the wedding!

So, based on that, my September to-do list is:

  • Pick up guestbook from photographer
  • Create ceremony backdrop
  • Purchase fiance’s gift
  • Purchase bachelorette dress
  • Purchase “morning-of” tracksuit
  • Mail invitations
  • Turn in paperwork @ work for marriage

What the heck am I going to do with my time when this is over? 🙂

Well, the month started off pretty good, but it will be a busy month for sure:

*Buy material for the guys vests/MOH ans Maid/Matron of Honor dress: check
