Re: Look Over My To-Do List

  • Looks good.  Very organized :)

    Are you having ceremony programs?  Do you need transportation?  Are you worring about your BMs hair/ need to make appointments for them?  Are you making emergency kits for the ladies' room?

    Those are the only things that jumpped out at me.

  • Looks good to me ... question, what kind of packets are you making for the vendors?
  • Wow this list makes me feel like I should be thinking more about what I need to do.

    Here's what I'm including in my packets.  I'm putting them all together in folders and will give them to us at our final meeting before the wedding.

    Photographer -- Contact information for family and bridal party, location information, day of timeline, must take list

    DJ -- Contact information for family and bridal party, location information, day of timeline, ceremony music list, reception music list, must play list, do not play list
  • Looks good to me :)  Very organized.  Does FI need to go with you to get marriage license?  I know we have to go together, that's the only thing I was thinking about.  (you're so efficient, I read your blog and your always so thorough)
  • Yea, my FI has to go with me to get the marriage license, but it's good for 60 days so we can get it a good bit ahead of time.
