  Goodness this thread is making me feel better! Here’s our list…

– Order Fiance’s wedding ring

– Buy shoes and undergarments for wedding dress

– Visit ceremony and reception site to figure out what decor will be needed (Our wedding is in Oregon and I live in Texas, so I haven’t even had a chance to see it in person! Luckily it’s on the beach, so it has to be pretty, right?)

– While I’m in Oregon visiting the ceremony/reception site, I’ll also need to meet with my other vendors and do my makeup trial

– Design/buy thank you cards

– Fill out questionnaire for officiant

– Schedule and do Fiance’s gift – boudoir session

– Figure out what we are doing for our honeymoon and get it booked/purchased

– Presents for parents/MOH

– Dress alterations (obviously has to happen after I get my shoes)

– Address invitations and send out invites – I’m thinking I’ll send ours out in April since our wedding is at the very beginning of August 8/2  

I think that’s it! It just still feels like so much stuff!!! Good luck to everyone on getting everything accomplished 🙂

– finalize who is saying a speech and the order

– choose ceremony type/readings for our officiant (since we are having a non-denominational ceremony)

– choose all of our songs etc. for the DJ
