SeptBride2Be23 :  Curious…what are your must have shots? Should there be a couple, a lot? I have all of 7 on my list. 😅 We both make the weirdest faces and hand gestures when posing so its best to catch us with candid shots, rather let the photographer use his best judgment for most of the night.

SeptBride2Be23 :  During a river cruise through Palo Verde! 😍 Pretty awesome day. All we have listed are parents, kids, father walking me down the aisle, ceremony kiss, wedding party group and a later shot of our semi private dance at sunset on the patio. I really can’t think of anything else…and some of these I’m pretty sure the photographer would have taken on his own.

  • Wedding: September 2017 - The Meadows

I’m about 46 days away! Just need to work on final payments, get some paper pieces printed(ceremony program, escort card), and go over last details with vendors. Oh, and pack for the honeymoon! I have put together my finished decor closet so I have everything packed away that’s ready to come out the day before. I feel way far ahead I think, but that’s fine by me. I’m hoping to not be a crazy person when we hit the month deadline!

25 days (September 2nd) will be here in 1 minute and i have so much left to do it’s kind of insane.

 

finish writing ceremony (we’re writing and marrying by a cousin)

meet with dj – finalize music and cues

figure out hair style

figure out nail color and book appointment

figure out what i’m wearing in my hair since i’m not wearing a veil. (short-haired bride and i’m doing my own day-of.)

figure out day-of jewelry and purchase accordingly – earrings? bracelet? idk.

get rehearsal dinner dress fit (i purchased it because it’s the most comfortable dress however it’s 4 sizes too big but i had to have it)

order a cake 

figure out what we want said cake to look like and how it will be displayed

get groom’s gift

order rest of flowers (we’re about 2/3 done)

figure out IF i’m carrying flowers and if i am, what will they look like. (we’re diying all of our flowers so i just have to pick something from what we’re getting and turn it into a bouquet)

do our table layout (seating is done)

2 more dress fittings

 

so that’s all i have written on the very large white board in the middle of our living room…

I’m 39 days away and stressing a bit but overall everything is running pretty smooth. 

We still have to: 

Finish our DIY projects (we have a few)

Give out final details to vendors (we already talked to our offisnt and florist)

Settle transportation

Buy alcohol 

Get sweets for our dessert table 

Make seating chart 

Book rehearsal dinner

Choose our first dance song and our processional music 

I’m sure there’s more, just can’t think of it at the moment. I have a thorough list on my computer.

I’m just about done! We met with our ceremony location today to go over details on the bridal party, how we want things to go, etc. I only have a few little things left.

– Need to get signs printed (sign our guestbook, gifts/cards)
– Get an easel for my seating chart
– Get marriage license (We’re going next week)
– Finish table #’s (Only 1 left to do!)
– Make our final payment to our reception hall, but they will contact us to do so.

Can’t wait for it to be over! I’m so ready to be married and stop thinking about planning 🙂

I am absolutely busting with excitement.

  • Wedding: San Francisco City Hall

21 days away!  Made a checklist the other day and shared it with FI so we can make sure we accomplish everything we need to leading up to our day.  We will be traveling from the East Coast to the West Coast for an elopement.  I have a hair appointment this coming weekend, a nail appointment just days before we leave.  Making arrangements for our animals for while we are away, determining how we want to transport our suit and gown and filling out paperwork.  Its all in the little details right now.

my anxiety is through the roof and I keep having migraines, two very important family members are in hospital. My car is breaking down, and I feel like postponing as I’ve got a week left! But apart from that yay weddings.
