March 2014 Weddings

As we are getting closer to our wedding dates....

What all do you ladies have left to do? I have this constant feeling that I'm forgetting something, and I've been through my planning book and the Knot checklist many times. Here is what I have left to do (that I can come up with at least):

  • Break in my wedding shoes
  • Bridesmaid gifts / Parent gifts
  • Make an itinerary
  • Figure out layout of Candy Buffet & make labels
  • Seating Chart (after I get the final head count)
  • Put together gift bags for hotel guests
  • Buy alcohol for the bar
It doesn't seem like a lot to do but I know the next 7 weeks will fly by fast!

Re: As we are getting closer to our wedding dates....

  • My day is 3/1 (so soon!) and here's what I have left to do (hopefully not missing too much)

    --seating chart (tmr is last day for response cards)
    --day of timeline for hair/makeup/time to leave for photographs
    --get program to person making them
    --select which appetizers we want (after have guest count)
    --tips and envelopes for tips for vendors
    --? still not sure if I want a guestbook
    --? determine my earrings/bracelet to wear

    Still feel like I"m missing stuff....
  • My day is 3/15 and I feel like my to do list is getting longer.  Every time I cross of 2 items, 2 more get added on.  It's insane.
    • Seating Chart (2/20 is the last day for RSVP's and the chart is partially done, but there is going to be some rearranging done).
    • Escort cards/Favors - the favors are doubling as escort card holders.  I think.  We'll see how it works out when I do a mock up.
    • day of timeline for hair/makeup/photos/etc.
    • Programs - gotta finish the design and print them.
    • Menus for the tables (making 2 menus a table instead of 140 cards - much cheaper and less ink!)
    • Rehearsal dinner - have to nail food selection down and get invites out before 2/20 so bridal party and other are aware of the details.
    • Guest book pens - need to get Silver and gold sharpie pens.
    • Must-take photo list for photographer - gotta edit it up some and print it out for my meeting with my photographer.
    • Make my girls bracelets/earrings for day of and finish prepping their gifts.
    • Determine what necklace/bracelet I am wearing the day of.  I already have earrings (pearl earrings my late uncle gave me a few years ago - simple and very pretty).
    • Update Prayer of the Faithful
    • Assign day of tasks to bridal party so they are the "go to" person if any issues arise (which I'm hoping there is none)
    • Contact all vendors a week or so ahead of time and make sure we're all ready for the day of.
    • Keep a watchful eye on the weather the week of.  
    • Tip for DJ & Assistant (all other tips are included in pricing - plus the photographer owns his own business - if it was from a bigger company I'd tip the photographer).
    • Panties/lingerie for under my dress and for the hotel room. :-P
    OMG and there is so much more to list that I won't because I will probably nit-pick it to death.

    Need 8 adults to make minimum.  Eek.
  • Let's see I already have a lot done so I don't have TOO much left over:
    - seating chart
    - figure out hair and makeup (to be done at trial apt on March 1st)
    - guest book
    - finalize ceremony
    - assemble favors (will do this the day before because it's food)

    I bought fake flowers and made all of the bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages this last weekend. Cost me $120 and I love them! They came out fantastic!
  • I'm losing it!  Seriously.  The list keeps getting longer and longer.  OYE.  I don't want this to be over, but I'll be so happy when EVERYTHING is checked off my list!!!!!!

  • Is it bad that I'm ignoring the to-do list? I have the two weeks before the wedding off before due to my school's spring break, so I plan on doing my menus, programs, table numbers, and welcome bags then.

    I'm currently working on my timeline, and have to get our music list to our DJ and meet with our florist by  3/7.

  • Ugh. I just kind of want to ignore things too (guestbook...do I want this?).    Unrelated question, what are your photo must-haves?   I know I want individual pics with each member of bridal party, family, combined families.   What else are you thinking/have seen?   Feel clueless here!
  • 23 days!!

    - Seating chart is done as of last night, just have to assign table numbers!
    - I have to order favors for the rehearsal dinner and wedding
    - I made ceremony programs to match the invites and I have to get these printed
    - My FI has to get his groomsmen gifts

    Parent gifts... what are you guys doing? I can't come up with anything. There is nothing I can think of to give them that can thank them enough for making this special day happen for me!!

  • We're doing a smaller photo album for both sets of parents once we get our photos back. 
  • We're making parent albums through our photographer after the wedding. FI got our dads monogrammed tie clips and I got our moms embroidered handkerchiefs, both from etsy.
