What did you get done this weekend?

Making these threads helps me keep my sanity and makes me feel as if I am actually getting stuff done each weekend.

  • Went over a lot of reception songs with FI. Made our "must play" and "DO NOT play" lists
  • Ordered programs from etsy, but don't have finalized text. But, I'm in line for production from the seller!
  • Made bouquet charms for my bouquet. (Last week I ordered them, this week they are finished)
  • Talked to florist: final centerpiece number set, corrected original quote to be more "final" 
  • Worked on seating chart with my mom. With the exception of moving the same group of people around 3 tables (as in, those 30 will be at one of those 3 tables definitely, but I might not know exactly where), the seating arrangements are done
  • Contacted event planner about where she will be set up
  • Finalized details with cake baker - designs decided, flavors finalized, etc. Yey!
This upcoming week:

  • I should pick up our marriage license. We applied and it is ready to be picked up, I just need to do so
  • Picking my dress up on and final fitting (although that should be fine)
  • Getting FI's wedding band
  • Meeting with pastor and finalizing ceremony and details
  • Finalizing seating plan
  • FI's bach party
  • Favors should arrive - I need to do some assembly
  • Menus should arrive - yey!

How is everyone else??

  • Continued painting wine bottle centerpieces, contacted people who hadn't RSVP'd, started the seating chart. Ugh.
