9/19ers To Dos

So with only 19 more days I'm really starting to stress about what I have left.  That and I'm thinking I'm forgetting some major piece!  This is what I'm working on/have left to do:Finishing up favorsGetting final payments to vendorsCommunicating with Florist about final detailsSeating Chart (mostly done, waiting for a few RSVPs)Printing PlacecardsGetting head count to venueGo over ceremony music with organistFinal gown fitting on SatOther than that it's just the small details and coordinating with all my girls for the day-of schedule.  I feel like I've got a pretty good handle on everything, yet I'm still stressing - I guess that's to be expected, though!Where are you ladies at with everything?

  • I'm not a 9/19er but have you been using the Knot checklists? They are annoyingly detailed.

  • 9/19 bride...................... Stressed to the max! Minister for the church will not call me back to schedule a meeting for the rundown of the ceremony.  I can't do programs or finalize music with the trio hired for the ceremony until we talk.  The music director for the church left and music had to be approved 30 days prior. Well............not sure who to contact.  The wedding coordinator for the church went on vacation until the week before the wedding.  So.............not sure who to contact.  AACK!!  We are about ready to escalate to the head minister.  We have been trying to meet with this minister for over a month and he sends me emails saying he knows I am stressed, let's meet this week but then won't contact me when I respond to that.  Favors:  We put them together last night and came up 60 short...which means we need to put out another $100 or more dollars to get the candy for the other boxes. RSVP-still waiting for 25% to RSVP-frustrating Need to do walk through for the reception venue Need to give final counts for cake and reception Need to finalize timelines Need to get bra and hosiery List goes on and on.......will take deep breath and move forward.        
  • I'm a 9/18er... I just have to confirm deliveries, etc. the week of the wedding. The last thing I really have to do is print programs and we're getting our marriage license this Friday.
