backyardbride1 :  they sound cute!

Do you need a card box? Gifts for the wedding party? Shot list for photographer? 

Rings?

I don’t think we’ll feel done until it’s over haha

I felt this way too then like 6 weeks out I realized I hadn’t thought about centerpieces, escort cards, who was going to deliver this stuff to the venue, music guidance for the dj (hadn’t even occurred to me to pick a cake cutting song) just small details like that .

backyardbride1 :  don’t forget to apply for your marriage certificate although you still have plenty of time (in my state they’re only valid for 60 days). But write that down somewhere because it’d be a biggie to forget 😉

Transportation?  I was booking limos the week before because I hadn’t really thought through exactly what we would need.  

Hotel blocks?  DOC? (ours was invaluable.  She thought of stuff I would NEVER have thought of)

Honeymoon?

So for me, around that time mine were Booking a hotel room for the wedding night, location to get ready the day of

Song lists for the ceremony/first dance/parents dance/cake cutting/etc

Any signage (bar sign, guest book sign, etc.), guestbook, any extra paper items like place cards, custom napkins

Gifts for parents and those in the wedding, cards to exchange before the ceremony

Bridal portraits and make up trial, accessories, bouquet wrap

Final payments to your vendors and confirming the timeline with everyone, set aside tips in labeled envelopes

Rounding up any additional decor, pictures you might display, etc. Welcome bags if you’re doing those
