September 2012 Weddings

August To-Dos

We're getting closer, ladies!!!  For some of us (me, for example), August is the last month we have to get things done.  Others have part or most of September still for finalizing details.

What did you get done from your July To-Dos?

What do you plan to get done in August?

Which to-do items are highest priority, and which ones can you let drop if you run out of time?

    1000 Comments Second Anniversary
    edited August 2012
    I can't believe some of you are nearing the 1 month mark! That's both exciting and terrifying. 

    I got most of my to do list from last month done. The big highlights include:
    Getting FH his outfit, finally
    Mailing invitations
    Figuring out the flower plan
    Deciding on almost all of the thank you gifts

    First Half of August To Dos:
    Finalize ceremony (I have an aversion to working on this)
    Decide if I want a sash (not going to get one)
    Send final payment for rental house
    Get all non-perishable floral supplies
    Finalize packaging for favors
    Order all remaining thank you gifts
    Get any other accessories I need 
    Order ties for FH and BM
    Figure out what his BM is going to wear
    Reserve rental car
    Possibly order new jewelry (I don't love what I have but I can't return them)
    Email friend about having brunch at her restaurant

    Second Half of August To Dos:
    Get marriage license 
    Order flowers
    Meet with photographer
    Buy chocolate for favors
    Get my outfit for the after party
    Get a revised estimate from venue
    Figure out plan for after party
    Break in my shoes
    Find a set of speakers we can use for ceremony
    Figure out boutonniere 

    I feel like I am buried under a pile of tiny details but none of them are things that can really be skipped. We already cut out anything that we considered extraneous.

    - Escort cards. Card box. Not sure where I'm going w/ those yet. Ugh.
    - Decide if we even want to mess w/ programs.
    - 7/14 anti-bachelorette day w/ gals- wine tasting, picnic
    - Get started on the cornhole boards! - work in progress. 1 is built, the other 2/3 built. Need to paint them and buy the supplies for the bags. And give those to my BM who has a sewing machine.
    - Gifts- parents, groomsmen. Finishing touches on bridesmaids' gifts.
    - Keep practicing dancing!
    - Sort out rehearsal dinner. This is turning out to be a moving target, and a pain in my arse. I just wanted it to be the wedding party, and plan to get together for some (early) drinks with the out-of-towners. Now my mom says it must include my aunts and uncles from OOT. So that means his aunts and uncles. But maybe not cousins? DOUBLE UGH!

    - Anything not done in July... ;)
    - Get my band sized (think I'll try to take it in on Monday the 6th) and get his band inscribed (may do on same day)- Both done! Mine's picked up, will get his later tonight or tomorrow.
    - License (either 8/6 or 7)- Done!
    - Check in w/ DJ, florist, musicians. All emailed!
    - Make sure registries have right mix of stuff, add if needed.
    - Make place cards. Have purchased the cards & the stamp I'm going to use, need to order clear labels.- basically done- just have to run the labels thru the printer and stick them on the cards. The hard part's done!
    - I'm not sure we're sending out invitations for the rehearsal dinner- just going to let people know via email I think. So will need to do that toward the end of the month. Maybe an evite?- Evite sent and almost everyone RSVP'd the first 2 days. Easy peasy.
    - Go in for fitting on 8/9- may be final fitting? Hope so! :D - Done! Dress is hanging in the coat closet! :D
    - 8/25: track down delinquent RSVPs. ;)- Down to 3 MIA. C'mon, c'mon. Emails have been sent. Phone calls are next I guess. need these by Friday.
    - Order programs (have already typed up).
    - Pay balances to photographer, florist, DJ, string trio, and damage deposit to venue.
