What is the most onerous task on your to-do list right now?

For me it is the music.  I just don't have the energy to choose music or a must-play list.  I love music but I think because there are so many choices out there is my problem.  I just can't make up my mind!  LOL

So what is the one task on your list you keep passing over?

  • Writing our vows definitely has to be it!  Making decorations is easy...putting the words together to describe how I feel about him is much harder!

    This is a great question to bring up on these boards. I am a DIY bride so I am making all of the centerpieces both real and fake, making my own unity candle, table card numbers, seating chart, wedding cake card box, wedding party timelines, wedding hangers, FI beer cake, ribbon wands, all the tags for favors, invitation labels, ceremony floral decorations, ceremony programs, pre-ceremony signage, photo montage of both my FI and I as well as my future in laws since they will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary the day before our wedding. My FI and I wanted to do a tribute to them during our reception. I think that about covers it. 

    We just found out that our shelties will be having their first litter of puppies next week and my future FIL has been having strokes and is currently in the hospital. I have been finishing up last minute things before the puppies arrive because that will be a full time job in itself.

    Since I am an crazy, obsessive detailed person I started my wedding day of and week of timelines back in 2014 and have been adding to it since. I would say that the most onerous task right now would be the wedding party timeline. For me, the high level overview of the day was the hardest as I did not want to bombard them with too much information. I could not decide if I should do one for the girls and one for the guys or combine both SO I finally decided to combine them. I have attached it for anyone who is interested.

    Oh and working out too! Not gaining but not losing either.

  • @Creato - OMG!  You are one serious DIYer and you've got LOTS to keep you busy for sure.  I love your timeline.  Thanks for sharing that.  

    @Knottie6174271 - We have yet to make the decision as to whether we want to write our own vows yet.  We've briefly mentioned that it would be something we'd want to do but nothing official yet.

    @tj&amp;cw - LOL!  Yes finding shoes was a nightmare.  I purchased 6 pairs looking for the right one.  The 7th pair was the charm.  Sheesh!

    @Creato.....Love the timeline was thinking of doing something like that....Not sure if I really want to see 4:30AM to start getting ready in writing until I have too.

    @tj&amp;cw....thanks! That's an early start but who would be able to sleep with knowing you'll be getting MARRIED! I know I will have a hard time with all of the excitement.

  • @island07b2b I am on the same page with you...I have stared at my DJ music sheet for months. I don't want to expend the energy trying to decide what music to play and when, ugh. The only thing that I have picked out is our first dance song.

    @creato2304---our wedding is at 10AM. We are planning on doing the first look and bridal party photos before the wedding.....FI wanted a Frank Sinatra and Joey Bishop impersonator at the cocktail hour so we want to be out with friends during that time.

    I agree sleep is going to hard that night
