Things I anticipate are:

  1. Picking up last minute things I forgot to buy;
  2. Getting my nails done;
  3. Visitng with out-of-town guests;
  4. Packing my bags;
  5. Final check-in with coordinator;
  6. Final weather check;
  7. Schleping all of the stuff to the venue (menus, kid-kits, etc.)

I have to remember to order food for us (me, Maid/Matron of Honor, BMs) to snack on while we get ready.

Oh man that week was chock full of last minute stuff!

  • Final table assignments & escort cards – last minute changes in RSVPs kept trickling in
  • Printed out and assembled programs, menus, cootie catchers, table numbers and other misc signage
  • Boxed up every wedding-related item and delivered the boxes to my coordinator
  • Picked up my wedding dress after final alterations/pressing 
  • Purchase & deliver the components of my s’mores bar & late night snack to the caterer 
  • Deliver the gum paste flowers I ordered to the bakery
  • Frame family wedding photos for guest book table
  • Assemble & deliver welcome bags to the hotel
  • Get nails done
  • Get passport renewed – at the last minute I realized my passport expiration date was in less than 6 months, which would have prevented me from going on our honeymoon – duh!

@reebee:  Do I want to know what a cootie catcher is?

@JenGirl:  haha they’re those little things we folded up in elementary school where you put four fingers in and open and close it and then they pick a section and get a fortune or whatever…

We put trivia about ourselves on them and put them on the tables during cocktail hour!

ETA – these weren’t mine, just an inspiration photo I used 🙂

@reebee:  that’s so cute! So did you have questions as the sides and then the answers when you open them up, or the questions once you open the flaps and they have to answer?

@loving_life:  Ours were just like the ones in the picture – names were on the outside, questions were on the inside, and then you had to open the flaps to get the answers – people actually loved them and they were practically free 🙂

I may have to steal that idea…. did you have several different ones with different questions, or were they all the same? lol sorry for the total threadjack!!

@loving_life:  I think we did 2 different versions.  I would have done more but this was definitely one of the projects that I waited for the week before the wedding to start!
