September 2012 Weddings

Weekly Checks!

OMG I can't believe it's August! I guess there won't be too many of these left...

-booked a limo
-RD is all set
-call my seamstress and left a message
-emailed my hair lady about what BMs want hair and makeup
-emailed my "worksheets" to the DJ and musicians
-started making my programs

-Hopefully set up an appointment for my first fitting. I know I'm a bit beind but my dress really only needs to be hemmed and bustled.
-Groomsmen should be getting ready at the hotel...find out what all of their plans are for the night before and wedding night and such as far as transportation/accomodations.
-call my photographer to discuss timing
-escort cards should be coming...fill them out
-email my officiant

So yeah, I feel like 99% of what I'm doing is just coordinating people and emailing/calling vendors.

Re: Weekly Checks!

  • I so agree!  Call here, e-mail there.  That seems to be where I stand.

    This past week:

    *Scheduled two of four dance lessons for next week
    *E-mailed DJ with contract updates
    *Reserved linens for two tables we will have at the park
    *E-mailed rental place asking about reduction in chairs needed (as we get RSVPs back)
    *Met with officiant at the ceremony site to discuss movement and timing
    *Continued making placecards as I get RSVPs

    It's getting short on time and very real!
    Once upon a time, there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.
  • This Past Week-
    - Fiance's suit came it! It's being altered now
    - Gift for my parents arrived
    - Ordered frames for table numbers (1/2 off at Kohls- w/Kohls cash I only paid $15 for 10!)
    - Finalized ceremony music (just need to mail in the packet to the string quartet) 
    - Finalized pre- wedding hotel stay for Fiance and wedding night for myself

    This Upcoming Week-
    - My dad is going to the venue with the lighting people to discuss ideas/logistics
    - Mom is sending ideas for placecards/table numbers for me to choose from 
    - HOPEFULLY Groomsmen will get back to us on their sizing so we can order the suits
