So far this month

1). Got FH to apply for his passport- should be getting it in the mail pretty soon.

2). Got FH is wedding band yesterday! Wahoo!

3). Meet with our Pastor tomorrow night to confirm the cermony time and other details. May print off the invitations that night or wait until tomorrow morning.

4). Taking off from work the next day to print the invitations, assemble them and put them in the mail. . .FINALLY!

5). Call the florist the end of this week or early next week to finalize everything.

6). Get FH moving on getting his attire and groomsmens’s attire.

7). Prepare the programs for the wedding ceremony. Get a basic template set up and ready to be printed later on.

This is a great idea!

1. Pick up invitations from the printer and assemble them. Hopefully they’ll be in the mail by the end of the week!

2. Update our wedding website with hotel information and things to do.

3. Finalize details with the florist.

4. Do our pre-wedding engagement shoot with the photographer. SO nervous! It’s this Friday.

5. Yarn balls and paper flowers – trying to do a little bit each week.

6. Work on our first dance.

Nice thread!

  1. Having our invitation suites printed soon! I designed them and am having them printed with Catprint.com
  2. Just finished and wrapped my bridesmaids’ gifts and “cold feet socks” for my groom ๐Ÿ™‚
  3. Finally found a florist to do our altar arrangement!
  4. Working on sending our list of do-not-plays and please-plays to the DJ. We are super picky about music. Sorry DJ!
  5. Oh yeah! And my first dress fitting is August 7th. I have a ton of borrowed/old/etc. accessories to bring with me and decide between.

You are on the ball ladies!  For August it’s all about the little things and double checking the larger things.

1.  Decor:  I held a crafting party with some of my gfs.  We knocked out the majority of my pinwheels, which will be used as escort cards, aisle decorations, and reception decorations.  But I need to finish.

2. Guest Book: Using a Martha Stewart template for a mad lib style guest book…basically I have to hit print and then use a paper cutter.  10 min max. I am all about keeping it simple.

3. Invitations: As soon as they come in I am arranging, stuffing, and mailing. 

4. Patiently await my dress arrival…apparently the shop closes the first two weeks of August for vacation and that is when my dress arrives, so I will not get it until mid-August.  In the back of my head I am worried it will be the wrong dress.  I just want to settle that voice.  On the upside, all bridesmaids, groom, and groomsmen have their attire. 

5. Confirm everything.

This weekend I need to

finish the invites, address them, and send them out next week

finish all my napkin rings (40 to go)

stamp all my popcorn bags and out of town bags

make my clay mustaches and lips on sticks

I would be thrilled if I could get all that done in 3 days (FI will be off on his bach party weekend)

wow, there is so much I need to do, but none of it seems “urgent” so it’s so hard to motivate me! Hopefully I’ll be able to get a lot of this done this week and next:

– work on ceremony/program/music/readings

-finish buying things for BM’s bags

-start assembling/addressing invites (we get them Aug. 5, goal is to send them Aug. 18)

-maybe go to a craft store and figure out how to put sparkly “i do”‘s on the bottom of my shoes

-finalize meeting date with florist (I think I just did that! yay!)

-decide what I want to do for a card box, and maybe make it.

-buy wedding bands

-maybe continue working on table numbers and print them (FI isn’t sure he likes my idea. I think I need to wait on that…)


I keep reminding myself, that even though I have like 90 days left, why WOULDN’T I do every possible thing in advance that I can?! I’m such a procrastinator! This is one thing that I reallly should NOT procrastinate on!

so many little things to do! the next 2 weeks i’m planning on:

1. Sending out invitations (99% ready, just need outer stamps!)

2. Finalizing song for first dance – have a few contenders.

3. Find gifts for bridesmaids

4. Finalize photo guest book and table number signs.

5. Get FI’s attire and his groomsmen’s attire ordered (not my responsibility of course)

6. Start thinking about ceremony and vows – i think it’s still too early for me to work on this though…i’d like to wait until it’s a little closer.

7. Find a place to get my wedding ring engraved. I have no idea how to go about doing this!

8. Update website with transportation and hotel info – must do this before i send the invites.

Wow, sounds like a lot, and that’s only the stuff on the list for the next 2 weeks! damn…

Honestly? I’m working on breathing. I’m starting to panic for various reasons, esp since right now we can’t find a rehearsal time/date that works for our officiant and us and the venue, so that’s the big one.

Invites will be printed this week, so that will be next. In the middle of that, working on DIY projects and ordering things I’ve had my eye on, but hadn’t pressed “add to cart” yet ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, and I totally changed what I wanted for shoes, so I spend every other day checking Zappos. Finding peep-toe open-back red kitten heels is harder than it should be.

And tonight I find out if the seamstress recommended to me can make my dress into a sweetheart neckline.

That’s just the things on my mind at the moment!
