  • Three months out!!

    Invitations are designed and samples of envelopes and pocket folds are on their way.

    Getting the final addresses for the guest lists

    My hair and make up trials are scheduled as well as appointments with the coordinator, officiant, DJ and photographer. Still need to schedule with my florist to get her final plan.

    Tickets are purchased for our final two trips back home prior to the wedding and our vacation time is secured.

    My sister has started planning the wedding shower and bachalorette party
  • Tuxes are all set. The guys have a month to get measured. My first fitting is this saturday and my invitations should arrive this week.

  • It's slowly but surely getting there! There are small details and some larger ones, but at least it's getting figured out.

    • figure out the suits for groomsmen/the groom/have fittings
    • taste cakes and book the bakery
    • book the florist
    • get wedding bands
    • finalize the guest list
    • figure out hair and makeup for me and the bridesmaids/moh
    • get the bridesmaids/moh gifts/groomsmen/best man gifts
    • send out the invitations
    • figure out day of transportation if needed
    • order programs. I have them all designed but am waiting to order until closer
    • figure out the songs for everything!
    • order the favors
  • Dropping the final files off at the printer today! :) 
  • We still need an officiant, FI is dropping the ball on this one. 

    I need to get BM/RB/FG gifts. And I need to get one for DS (he's 5), as he's walking me down the aisle. 

    FI's ring needs to be engraved still.

    Alterations are in the process. I was able to get my dress from a sample sale, and it's too big so it's a process. 

    Other than that, we just have the last minute things like marriage license, packing for the HM, etc.

    Still some big vendors to get to and lots of little details. MoH has decided to stop talking to me, so not sure if she's planning on being in the wedding. My dad's siblings are feuding, so not sure if a good chunk of our guests will even come to the wedding. Then, my parents decided this week that they wanted to invite more people..and gave me an additional 90 names!

    Ha.. I cannot believe there are only 2.5 more months to finish all of this. Gotta love wedding planning :)
  • Ooh I just ordered my WeddingMix package! My brother and sister-in-law used it at their wedding and it was super fun for everyone to leave them personal well-wishes and get sweaty dance floor footage from their reception. Can't wait to see what my guests' capture :):)
