I don’t know that this is helpful but you’re much further along than I was even when I was planning my January wedding!  Our wedding is now incredibly small and very much so DIY so I can’t really think of much that’s going to take too long besides getting up to Rhode Island to meet with our vendors and possibly the wedding rings which we need to order soon.  The town we’re getting married in is also small by the way so we have one option more or less for a cake in town which we’re just going to pick up.  I kind of like the idea of the small town bakery making our cake even if it means it has to be simpler.

Oh and we’re ordering our flowers from wedideas.com (I actually like the idea of it not being real so we can keep all our wedding flowers) so we need to put in that order soon as that’ll take four months to be shipped.  I think the wedding ring search has been hardest so far.  Before that though wedding party attire was taking a while but now it’s just wear what suit you have (we have just my brother and his brother)

Hi, This is my idea, hope it works for you. And from reading some of your posts, I think that money is the issue with part of these things-so they may take longer to do.  πŸ™‚ 

1) I would think FI’s name change would be the top of the list, at least find out how long it takes, how much money, steps, etc.

2) Find boarding for your dog. If your dog has not been kenneled before, your dog may need a bordatella shot. (Find out when to get it done & schedule).

3)Figure out your ceremony and if reception seating and place cards are needed, choose font for invites. These can take incredible amounts of time-more than you’d think.

4)If you have place (under each bed?) to place luggage, pack things that you will be taking with you, including DIY things-veil, shoes, as you finish. Place your and FI’s accessories and undergarments, stockings in luggage. Guestbook, Placecards, ribbon, pen for guest list, champagne flutes, (OOT bags/favors if you want them.) Check schedule and update list.


5) Buy things as you can,– pen for guest book, shoe dye, buttons, undergarments, stockings,cardbox? ribbon, aisle runner, luggage, kids’ clothes, (schedule) tatoos, restaurant decor? Place items as you purchase them in appropriate luggage-get more luggage if necessary.

6) Methodically picture/think through your wedding day, to make sure you have everything that every person will need throughout each step of the day.

7) Review your list. Pack last minute clothing for each person.

8) Drop dogs off.

9) Get married!  Celebrate! Have fun! Enjoy being married

Hope this helps!! πŸ™‚

I live in San Antonio too!

As for boarding your dog, you might try my vet. They’re *super* reasonable with all of the vet care; i’ve never boarded there though.


Universal Animal Hospital – I use Dr. Proctor (I know, I giggle every time I say it too!), but I’ve seen the other vets there a few times and they’re all super nice. If I had a dog to board I’d take him there!
