Hump Day Checks

Post them here.

And congrats to our June 16th girls for being only a month out!! I honestly can't believe we're getting so close!!

Re: Hump Day Checks

  • We started making our favors last night!!

    We were able to do 24 jars of jam!! I'm so excited with how it's turning out. This was my really big check that I wanted to get done in May, and it looks like we're going to do it! :)

    I really want to start working on designing our ceremony programs now since we have all of that finalized.
  • Yum!
    No recent checks. Working on the Songs list for the DJ.
    I think it's pretty well and done.

  • Made the escort cards for the couple more people that we were able to confirm yesterday.
    Started on the stupid seating chart

    Oooh and I had another fitting for my bach party dress.  The woman working on it wasn't sure if she had taken it in enough.  It looks so great, I cannot wait to wear it

    FI and I sat down together last night and googled/youtubed wedding reception songs.  We wrote down a list of our favorites, and submitted them to our DJ.  Also ordered programs yesterday, can't wait for those to come in.  One month to go!!!!!

  • I am going to the bank on lunch to transfer money and send out some payments to the photographer and the florist... I can't believe we're officially under one month out.

    Our deadline for RSVPs was yesterday too, so we started contacting some people.

  • Congrats on all the checks, ladies! looks like we're all on the ball ;)

    we had our last meeting with our pastor last night, and i wrote down a list of questions to ask him before we went. so glad i did that!
    Started working on the timeline (since my mom has been bugging me about that for the last three weeks), i have a few more things to add in and some questions to ask so more people before i get it all done, but at least i've done SOMETHING! lol
    started working on my mom's "to do" list for the week before the wedding since she'll be up here about four days before i'm oficially off for the wedding and there will be so much to do
    have almost completed our song list. . . we're not having an official DJ, FFIL has his own DJ equipment and we'll be playing music from itunes.
    found out that FI's aunt has a kareoke (sp?) machine and FI will be asking her to borrow it for the wedding. . . our friends did this at theirs a few weeks ago and it was AWESOME!!
    had a meeting with the cake lady yesterday, she came to our house and took a bunch of pics of FI's accordian for the surprise groom's cake- i'm SO excited! besides my dress, this is the only surprise i've kept from him about the wedding, i hope he loves it!

    . . . .and, i think that's it!

    I e-mailed our officiant, pianist, and florist to confirm our appointments for this weekend, and I called Costco to set up a floral consultation with them, too.

    I ordered a book as a gift for FI's GM, so now we just have to get something for his BM/bro. I'm sure it will be something silly if FI has his way...

    I went through four albums and picked out photos to scan for our slideshow.

    FI and I worked on our playlist (no DJ, just ipod, so it's all up to us!)

    Picked up my bridesmaids' jewelry today! I tried to order favors, but the computer was down. I have to go back tomorrow.  Today was supposed to be deadline day for my RSVPs but I still have 31% outsanding. I'll give them through the weekend, Monday I start calling.
