Oh my…well:

1. Make a final decision of centerpieces and work on them (I flip flop WAY too much!)

2. Put together invites and start addressing them

3. Create music list for DJ

4. Create list for photographer of who we must have pictures with and what types of pics (photog’s request)

5. Sign a contract with a florist and pick bouquets (we’re halfway there)

6. Finish bridesmaid’s gifts, MOB jewelery and my jewelery

7. Work on menu cards, escort cards and any other paper products

8. Collect jars/vases and candy/nuts for sweet/salty buffet bar

9. Maintain my sanity…

And my dress still hasn’t come in yet!  So I figure my first fitting will probably be this month – oh and now I need to make a decision of whether I should do a veil, birdcage, or just fascinator (which Maid/Matron of Honor will make fascinator)

Oy, I was avoiding this post because it scares me to think how close we’re getting. We have to:

  • book our honeymoon (yeah, I know…it’s FI’s job, so I’m leaving it to him)
  • hire ceremony musicians
  • make an appointment for my first dress fitting in July
  • send invitations to the printer and then to the calligrapher
  • work on our ceremony/vows
  • order wedding bands
  • order shoes
  • finalize flower designs (I’ve gone back and forth like a million times on two or three different designs)
  • figure out our favors

And I’m sure there’s plenty else that I’m forgetting…

I’m mainly doing random stuff . . .

We just finished labeling & stamping our invites, in preparation in July to mail them out.

We’re in the process of cleaning & peeling labels off the jars/bottles we’re using for centerpieces.

Finalizing designs on programs, and choosing ceremony music to include on the programs.

Get misc knick knacks we want at the reception, like a menu chalkboard.

so, just little stuff, that will hopefully keep our workload low in the coming months.  We’re pretty calm here in my household.
