It is approaching so fast let’s see:

Dance lessons start tomorrow

Seating Chart/Escort Cards after the rsvp deadline

Out of Town bags after we get a count once the hotel deadline passes *have most of the pieces

Favors – after we have our final count

Finish our guest book we are making a photo coffee table book with pictures of our city and our story

One final gift to pick up

I think that is it!

You guys should have a glass of wine and relax!

I am planning from afar so there’s some DIY things that I cannot do until I get across the country.

This is what I have left before I leave:

  • last dress fitting (9.16)
  • cut, color and hair trial (need to do it right bf I leave)
  • a bunch of DIY projects all in the works. My local BMs are coming over on Sunday for a crafty brunch
  • call people who haven’t RSVP’d (Sept. 5)
  • send out/invite second list of people after RSVP cut off (after Sept. 5th)
  • figure out Out of Town bags
  • gift for Fiance
  • I still don’t have a florist 🙁 but we are working on it
  • Vows and I may need to change my JOP (long story)
  • Ship whatever I can to my mothers (next week)

There are definitely tiny things to do but these are the major ones. Still I feel pretty good about my to do list. Now if I could stop purchasing little things I see that would be so cute to have. Must. Stop.

It is so nice to see how much shorter our lists are now, compared to a few months ago!!  My to do list:

~ still deciding on programs

~ buying candy for my favors

~ gifts for parents, groomsmen and ring bearers!!

~ get marriage license (FI should be getting that on Friday)

Gosh, I think that is it!! 

Good Luck to the rest of the October Brides!!!

Pay off: Photographer, favors, preacher

~Get marriage license

~get hair and nail appointment set

~get bowls for candy at tables

~gifts for all of bridal party

~last dress fitting end of September

Seems like a small list but still lots of $$$ to go and not lots to spend any suggestions on bridal party gifts for cheap? I know that sounds bad but we are in a real bind here.

48 days ladies, and counting! Eep!

I still have to:

  • iron out the ceremony/vows
  • plan music for ceremony, dinner & reception
  • finish escort cards, table numbers & menus
  • make jewelry for me and my gals
  • make my veil
  • make card box
  • re-order FIs shirt because it arrived too short – argh!
  • figure out a gift for my fabulous MC & ring bearer
  • order lanterns for aisle

But we accomplished our most important task on Friday – we got our marriage licence – woohoo!

Oh wow, my list is still really long — and we’ve only got less than 4 weeks! Here’s my scary long list:

  • Set up hair appointment
  • Send in final head count and bar choices (beer/wine)
  • Meet with DJ
  • Pick a rehearsal dinner spot (Can’t believe this one is taking so long!)
  • Gather all items for reception decor **This one is a doozy, which branches out into it’s own ridiculous list**
  • Select ceremony music & finalize ceremony with officiant
  • Write our vows
  • Finalize the schedule for others
  • Finish seating chart
  • Decide on and order dessert
  • Print photo sharing cards and maps
  • Assemble favors
  • Figure out transportation
  • Make direction signs for ceremony
  • Assure we have our permits
  • Write our reception intros for the wedding party

Regardless of how much I have to do (FI is away at that fire in LA for at least 10 more days!), I am so frickin’ excited!! Anyone else getting giddy at this point?!
