@futuremrse: Our schedule is a lot like yours!

I’m not sure when the bach parties are yet, but they won’t be that weekend. Friday-Saturday we’ll work on reception centerpieces, Saturday evening is the rehearsal, and Sunday is the wedding of course.

Because the wedding will end relatively early, we plan on going back to my parent’s to open gifts and spend more time with family. I thought that was another nice scheduling bonus with a Sunday wedding. 🙂

Good to know that you ladies are doing flowers on Friday also.  I was concerned about it being too early but I was afraid Id be overwhelmed doing it on Saturday!

is Thursday too early for mani/pedi?  We are out-of-town, so I’ll be getting that done at home, and then we are driving to fiance’s parents either Thursday or Friday.

No bachelor/ette parties (the whole bridal party is scattered up and down the east coast, impossible to get people together)

we are having our rehearsal at 7 pm on Saturday night, with the dinner following it at 8 pm (late, especially considering I have hair/makeup starting at 8 am the next day!!)  But our venue is booked solid for Saturdays, so that was the only timeslot we could get for the rehearsal. 

Ceremony starts on Sunday at 11:30, reception 1-5.

@Mrs Hedgehog:

Fri – any last-minute things; Maid/Matron of Honor gets here we’ll hang out

Sat – lunch w/wedding party, then rehearsal early afternoon. After that check in @ hotel with Bridal Party, hang out. Was going to do mani/pedis but may scrap that in favor of just spending time talking, thinking I should ask MOH/any other BMs what they’d like to do.

Sun – 1st thing in the morning, Fiance and I are meeting up, doing a private time thing. Then it’s back to hotel, hair/makeup, first look photos @ 2, 2:30. Ceremony is at 5:00, cocktails/reception till 10ish.

So far this is what I have planned (will tweak if needed):

Thursday: My family is supposed to arrive (and 3 of my bm’s) Last minute fittings for them and just hanging out and doing any last minute wedding stuff (favors, escort cards, etc).

Friday: I am getting my manicure and pedicure done and possibly my hair blow dried and flat ironed (if girls want to join me they can). That’s in the am.  Later in the day, we’ll be prepping for the Rehearsal Dinner.  Rehearsal at 3 pm hopefully and then dinner right after.

Sunday: Bridal brunch in the am while we get ready.  Wedding at 3pm.
