Re: What's left on your list?

  • Ok, it's getting shorter, but it's still long! Lol

    BM gifts - I'm thinking I'm going to do a silver clutch for them to use at the wedding and stuff it with individual little items that they'll like. (kinda like a christmas stocking.)

    Wedding dress alterations - I just called the girl I wanted to do them (who was highly reccommended on my local board) and she's free in January for my first appt!!! So, at least I've got that semi taken care of. 

    Cake tasting - scheduled for this coming Monday

    Day of coordinator booking - I'm just lazy and haven't sent in the contract yet. Lol

    Centerpieces - no idea what I'm doing for these yet!! 

    Extend venue rental - emailed her again today so hopefully I'll get a response (finally. ugh.)

    Call caterer about a sweetheart table

    Buy alcohol for the reception

    Hair/makeup trial - sometime in January

    Go to the gym and work off all the beer and fast food I eat. Lol.

    Engagement pics - scheduled for 1/7 (also, find outfits for said e-pics, as well as b-party)

    Mail invitations - they're addressed, just need stamps

    I think that's all the big stuff. TK tells me I'm 101 days away today!!

    What about you?? :-)
  • Besides finish paying off the vendors,

    Stuff to buy:
    Alcohol for Reception

    Guest Book
    Toasting Flutes/Server set
    BM gifts

    Stuff to do:
    Book Officiant (sorta important! lol)
    Add on documentary to video package
    Programs (wanted to wait to make sure GMs and BMs order)
    Reduce count for reception (We got word from family in Mexico wont come due to expired visas)
    Finalize decor/arrangements (they are not glued in to their containers)
    Talk to Baker about cake change
    RD catering contracts
    Scheduling rehearsal at venue
    Finalize song lists for ceremony/reception, inc. do not play list
    Finalize songs for cinematic video

    Stuff for others:
    1 MOH dress to order
    2 BM dress to order
    1 FG dress to order
    All GM need to get fitted

    Scheduled, not complete:
    Dress pick up for bridal portraits (I decided to do 'em)
    Hair/Makeup trial for bridal portraits
    Nails for bridals portraits
    Photo session
    All bridal party boquets/bouts are ordered and shipping soon
    Ordered website inserts from Vista print, waiting on them to finish invites
    Ordered stamps to inlcude for those who will have the RSVP mailed in
    Meet with coordinator at the venue for chair placement

    So, I think that is it...UGH I hope so, anyway!
  • Make/Send invites. DJ list DIY bridesmaid coasters GM gifts Finalize items for bathroom baskets Print programs Finish card box Finish tags for "dancing shoes" Any last DIY tasks I decide to tackle Getting there. Ahhhhh
  • I *was* done.  Now I have a few things left...

    1) A garter.  I probably won't wear one at all but it's something that's been on my mind lately.  No garter toss... so do I wear one???

    2) Undies!  I forgot about this bit!  I need undies to wear on my wedding day still!  I really want those "Sexy Little Bride" undies at VS, but they're sold out in my size.

    3) The ceremony.  We had the blessing written for the most part, but now that we're having a legal ceremony the rest needs to get done.  But I can't do that until the wedding officiant gets back to me and she said usually she will about a month or two before the ceremony date.

    4) Pack and cruise!!!

    I believe in a lot of things. I believe in fresh tennis balls, the healing power of bunnies, and that the novels of Susan Sontag are something I'll never read. In fact, I don't even know who Susan Sontag is. What is she... like... a painter? I believe in Crystal Lite because I believe in ME. I believe in the movies of Val Kilmer, though these days it ain't so easy. I believe in Darren Sproles, the word "dabble", the first season of "Silk Stockings", and big, warm, moist, gooey chocolate chip cookies that melt in your mouth and all over your face.

    THIS!! Getting to the point where lists are stressing me out big time.  Current priorities = hair trial (tomorrow), book transportation, book honeymoon.  THEN I'll look at the rest of my list and re-prioritize top 3 again :)
  • What is still on my list, let me think :

    - The groom has to buy his shirt, shoes and belt
    - We still have to buy our rings (we already know which pair it is going to be, just have to buy them).
    - Order our thank you gifts (also already been choosen, just have to order them).
    - Flowers.

    I believe thats it.
