Confused.

Why was this on my knot checklist?  I thought this was a HUGE no-no.

Make sure everyone in the wedding party is aware of what you expect of them -- especially your bridesmaids and groomsmen. Provide a list of duties to the maid of honor and a list of to-dos to the best man.

It also had the alarm clock thing next to it telling I its overdue, lol.

    I have know idea.. But we all tell you to ignore that part of the Knot check list.






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

    Hahahaha well you'd better get on that, since it's overdue. Make sure you include how they are each supposed to pay for a spa day for you, since it's so stressful being a bride and as your slaves they should help you relax.

    The Knot checklist is nuts.  It was telling me to send out invites at the 3 month mark.

    It's probably just for things like, "bring rings to ceremony"

    Not things like "Wake up the bride"

    Trust me, that's not the only ridiculous item they have on that checklist- wait until you get a little closer!

    It was telling me to get my flights for the honeymoon reserved 9 months ahead of time.  Really?  How about we start getting the ball rolling with flights at about 4 months?  Or at 6 weeks like my Dad did when he flew from MN to the Maldives (in the Indian Ocean).  Their his miles, I know he doesn't need 9 months!

    TK can be silly.  They want things done ahead of time,  So we cross-reference with my mom's checklist in her planning book (she's a stickler... everything has to be done by her book / because she's a mom-zilla) and the planning book/magazine I have - Real Simple Weddings.  Love their checklist.  It's better for a low-maintenance bride.

    Yeah, I'm 6 months out and it says I'm overdue for ordering invitations.  I freaked out for a minute (because what do I know?) and went to the website where I think I'll be ordering from to check their delivery times and it's like, 2 weeks.  WTH, Knot??

    I swear I read something on The Knot about how bridesmaids should go to the couple's house while they are on their honeymoon and like, post "welcome home" signs or something. 

    My bridesmaids totally dropped the ball.  ::scoff::

    Haha, yeah. Fi was nervous because he hasn't gotten his final address list from his dad or his aunt. I'm trying to send out STDs, like, yesterday. Next week we'll be at 7 months. I'm telling him, "Well, this is why we're getting the guest list together now instead of 4 months from now." He looked confused and said, "Oh! Wait, I thought invitations were supposed to go out 5-6 months early?" Oh, boys.

    I just checked off all the stuff on the list that I wasn't going to do as "done" so it'd stop yelling at me.

    Well, let's face it.  If you have a list of expectations of them, it's probably better to get it out in the open sooner rather than later, right?

    I like shews too.

    But I meant shoo like scram.

    But, but... I thought I was being all logical and reasonable, no?

    PS.  In addition to shoos, I'm discovering a love for Bath and body works anti-bac hand cream.

    I love the B&BW Tropical Passion Fruit scent. My office springs for that (although we have 1-ply TP) but the soap smells so wonderful.
