I haven't posted in quite a while, but I'm back! I'm an Aug 11 bride, and it's really coming up fast! I've been keeping with your posts - wow, you girls are so on the ball! Everyone's plans are coming along so nicely.
I'm trying to make somewhat of a schedule/checklist of what's left to do...
Here's where I'm at:
Venues/vendors booked (church, reception, photog, video, ceremony/cocktail hour pianist, DJ, bakery, limo)
Premarital counseling completed through church
Dress purchased - awaiting first fitting in mid June
Hotel blocks reserved
BM dresses purchased and in
Suits ordered and in
Rehearsal dinner booked
Hair trial and day of hair appts set
Engagement pics taken
MY wedding band ordered, FI's not yet
Here's what I think I have left...
Make pocket squares
Send invites on June 5 (which are ALMOST done, maybe 18 of 175 left to do!)
Make table numbers (picture frames purchased, just have the make the numbers)
Get FI's ring
Make rehearsal dinner invites
Get parents'/bridal party gifts
Boudoir photos (FI's wedding day gift)
Get marriage license
Order trial flowers (we're doing Sam's Club, so I'd like to get some beforehand to make sure they come in looking ok)
Get cake knife/topper
Send rehearsal dinner invites
Make reception seating plan (after RSVP cut off of July 20)
Make day-of schedule
Bachelorette party July 28
finish up everything that didn't get done before now
So what am I missing??
And just because everything's better with pics... Here's what I've got:
The beginning of our centerpieces... Half of the tables will have wine glasses topped with tissue poms, sitting on top of a round mirror tile and surrounded by votives.. Plus table number.
My ring, which I adore. Don't have any pics of the band with it, but it's a simple yellow gold band (two tone rings are kind of a thing in my fam) shaped to shadow the e-ring's chevron shape.
Invites, which are addressed, but I retouched them for privacy. Clearly,like an idiot, I forgot to put an RSVP by date on my RSVP cards so I just bought a stamp off Etsy and stamped them all. You can tell it's a last minute fix, but whatever - job done!
Inside of invites, retouched again. My FI designed our monogram, the rest of the handy work is from me and my mom!
And a few of my favorite of our engagement pics... Our photographers are AMAZING - so happy we hired them, and can't wait to see the boudoir and wedding pics...
Hope everyone's having a great day
Sorry this turned into a novel!
