- Anything with cake (we’re planning to DIY, but Fiance hasn’t started practicing yet, so that might not happen…)
- FI’s side of the guest list (yikes!)
- Picked groomsmen
- Bridesmaid’s bouquets

What’s your list?

Purchased Invites. Have wording ready to Go! Will Print Closer to Mailing Date. When are you ladies mailing out? Still working on RSVP card wording. We are having a limited guest list and intimate wedding.
Ceremony Program Designed; just waiting to print!
I need to find out for sure if my Flower Girl is going to fit in her dress or not; I’m worried. I purchased them early, but bought them a lot bigger, thinking I’d pay for them to be altered taken in, but worst case scenario they grow and they fit! Well before my and my ex-MOHs fall out; she commented that the Flower Girl dress was already running a little tight that was two months ago with still a few months left to go. Its my accent color, the FGs are the way or at least my way of tying in the Teal to our wedding. I’m so nervous. Hoping my ex-MOH was just being a snarky biatch to make me worry. I cant find the dress since I bought it at a random shop in LA.
We need to get with our officiant; he’s a friend of my parents. Including a ceremony outline or ideas to bring to him; wording, readings, guidelines, wants/dislikes.
Have First Dance and Parent Dance song ideas; but need to make definite.
Florals…I have not even begun. Since I was surprised how much they were going to cost, I stopped. I need to jump back in realistically now.
Mom’s Dress is on Order and Bmaid Dresses are all on order and due in end of October! EEK! Mother of the Groom purchased a dress but now hates it; so she’s back to looking.
Suit “Friar Tux” Try-On Appts; same day my bmaids tried on their dresses all together. Wanted to see if FI’s idea for his Groomsmen attire would complimen the bmaid dresses and vice versa. Trying on more color combos and ideas Aug. 23rd.
Wedding Food Tasting – Sept. 24th
First BIG payment is due to the venue Sept. 18th! EEK! Come on stock market, please be good to us!!

@thehoneybear: Yikes! You have a lot to do! I have a million DIY projects to finish. I have everything half finished its very annoying. We plunked a lot of money into the wedding this week paid off the videographer, photographer, string quartet and dj. I have not contacted the officiant. I know shame on me..
