What's next on your list?

Hi there! 

I haven't posted here before.
My wedding is August 3rd, in West Lafayette, Indiana. My colors are purple and green.

Aaand I'm kinda behind on my to-do list. Definitely lacking in the motivaiton department. Bleh. Thought I'd see what everyone else was up to! Maybe hearing how much farther ahead everyone else is will help me kick it into gear... ;)

Happy Friday-Almost-Saturday!

    • The next thing on our list is to meet with the DJ and give him a music list. Finalize addresses for the guest list, and begin to address invites.  We plan on sending them out, first week in June. I'm doing a lot of DIY projects.  Wrapping mason jars with burlap and ribbon, making burlap table runners, paper lanterns and so forth. I also need to do a dress fitting, and finish buying my accessories for my dress. 
    • Other than that, most of our big things have been done already.  We are still paying on the honeymoon, and finalizing some little things with our menu, and day of stuff. I think we have most of our "big" to-do's out of the way.

    Welcome! We just met with our venue today to finalize our menu. My next steps will be tux reservations, hair trial, dress fitting in May, and addressing invites. I expect getting our addresses in order could be rough...

    My wedding is August 17th. The next thing on my to-do list is meet with our tuxedo place to get my FI fitted and figure out what style we want to go with. I've been engaged for almost a year and a half so I have a lot of stuff like all my vendors done already.

    Hi ladies, My first time posting as well on a month board! We are getting married August 17th. I'm working on decor and finalizing the invite design so I can have them printed. We just booked our honeymoon the the Dominican Republic so I have to reup my passport. Next up is getting FI a suit and starting to work on music choices. I'm still waiting for my dress, it won't be in till May and the I have to ship it from CA to TX where we live now for alterations :

    Ah, I feel so behind! I'm not even THINKING  wedding this week - I have interview #3 with the same school district this week, so I'm hoping (praying!) that by this time next week I've have a position for next year. If I get it, the first thing I'm doing is booking the honeymoon!

    Other than that, I need to start addressing invites, print the hotel inserts, start some of my DIY projects (a thank you sign and table numbers), and order the tuxes. I need to think about limos, too. Most of our big stuff is taken care of.

    good luck stardust!! is this a classroom teaching position (I teach 1st:)
    right now I am working on getting invitations set and ordered, FI needs to choose his tux, we need to sign the limo contract, and we have a cake tasting next week!
    I think I'll feel a lot better once I have the invites ordered because that's our last really big thing to do.
    I can't believe our month is getting so close!!

    We have most of our big stuff out of the way now.  We just had our cake tasting on Saturday so we have everything for the cake finalized.  Our next things are finalizing the addresses on my FI's side so we can start addressing our invites, getting my FI his suit, and setting up our ceremony music.

    Oh stress! Let's think : 

    I am going to a cake tasting in two weeks when I hit up Vegas. Hopefully that goes well because its the only place I have planned to taste anything at. I tried on my dress last week and it BARELY fit, so I have to go on a diet. I need to figure out table centerpieces, and start getting my invite addresses finalized. Our wedding ceremony details need to be sorted out, and our music. 

    Luckily , FSIL was here for the last week helping me make plans. We figured out table number cards and placecards, so that is a tick! We got some favors, and my hairpiece, too. Love that girl.

    I feel like all of the big stuff is out of the way, invitations ordered (needs addressing later), flowers/centerpieces, cake, photog, officiant, bm dresses, gm and ring bearer tuxes picked out. Our venue takes care of most details for us, they have packages, so we don't really have many vendors to deal with. We have meetings set up for later to finalize music, menu, linens all that sort of stuff.

    Now I just have a list of DIY projects to get out of the way! Card box, ring pillow, guest book, arch decor, cake topper, remembrance candle, hair comb, jewelry etc.

    mrsrutkowski - it is classroom position, for 8th grade social studies :)

    In other news ... FI's grandfather is being taken home for the hospital and taken off all medications except for pain management tomorrow. All wedding stuff is being pushed to the back burner. So much for the diet I was going to start to remedy the dress situation ... bring on the wine.
