I’m earlier in May, and I have SO MUCH to do. Like, pretty much everything but make a guest list and pick a venue/caterer lol. It’s starting to stress me out. May is coming so quickly!!

I’m the day before! These are the one’s I’m trying to sort out at the moment:

Get Fiance and Groomsmen suits

Get Maid/Matron of Honor a dress (she’s feeling really unconfident post-baby)

Send invites (they should be going out this week hopefully)

Have another meeting with our venue to finalise things

Have dress fitting and choose a petticoat

Get travel insurance for the honeymoon

Get presents for bridal party

*sigh* SO much to do! Now that spring is almost here it’s really starting to hit me how close May is!

I’m May 26th also!!!!

I have to do the following:


Pick menu/drinks

Finalize everything with my vendors

Pick out honeymoon location (FI’s job)

Wedding favors (FI’s job)

Wait on my dress. I ended up getting another dress and it will not be in until May. If it doesn’t come in on time, I will just go with the first one I purchased, but they promised me it would be in before May 10th.

I made a note to be done with everything by March 29th. Fiance and I are taking a mini vacation the last weekend in March to clear our head from wedding ‘fun’ and wedding ‘drama’.

I am May 19th and I feel like its crunch time now! There is so much to do, I don’t think we have a free weekend until the wedding. Although, I do love getting all my wedding stuff in the mail- it’s like a mini Christmas in the mail- this week was shoes, hair piece, and parts for projects (of which I have about 20 half finished). So…with that said I better get to work and maybe one of those projects will actually get finished tonight.

@moonmaiden76:  May 27th bride too!

100 days left I still felt ok.  90 days hit and I had a tiny panic attack!  Its not like I haven’t been doing anything.  I work on the wedding almost everyday but the 18 month engagement made me feel like I had lots and lots of time left to do stuff.  That being said everything major is done.  Now I just have to fulfill my OCD tendencies and we’ll be fine!

  • Invites are ordered, still need to buy envelopes/line/address
  • buy ring bearer/flowergirl outifts, all decided just let them grow as much as possible before buying!
  • Out of Town guest bags
  • buying wedding bands tomorrow!!  All decided just have to pay.
  • random DIY like table numbers, banners for the trolley, etc.
