i still have to get my invites - eeek!
what's everyone else doing?
I need to schedule a tasting to order my cake like yesterday. It's funny now that I think about it. I purchased a cake topper yesterday, and I have no cake. LOL.
Oh and I don't have invites completed yet either.
I'm doing pretty well. I still have to get a florist (Yikes)Other than that I think I'm on track...I get my invites today and will send them out end of next month.
My To Do list through Sept:- Book Florist- Get Rings- Book rehearsal dinner place- Find hair and makeup person- Order BM gifts- Start pre-marital counseling (already have appt. set up).
I'm sure there's more that I should do soon...but I'm drawing a blank.
my to-do list for the next few weeks:- pick up headband and veil (this Sat!!!)- book limo (hopefully today)- confirm rehearsal date & time with priest (left message today)- get rings- get FI to try on his tux to see if it fits. if not, we need to get him one asap lol- decide on tux shop & tuxwear for the boys- take my dress into the city to my seamstress- meet with DOC- schedule day-of hair & make-up appts for me & girls- schedule florist sample appt for Oct- assemble & send out invites (waiting on the envelopes to come back from calligrapher)- schedule tasting & menu selection with hall for 6 weeks before wedding (that includes cake options)- remind FFIL that he's coordinating the NYPD Pipes and Drums corps for us lol
-Lots of DIY (design programs, menus, escort cards, etc)- Everything rehersal related- Finish invites- Finish OOT bags, bathroom baskets-Cake (have a tasting tonight)- oh geez... just too much... dont wanna think about it :)
can i say i'm so over the DIY stuff - the closer it is - the more i just wanna pay someone to do it! LOL!
Haha, I hear you!
I have the big stuff done, like the hall, minister, dj, cake ordered, catering, drinks, Invites done, just to be addressed and mailed.
We have to order the girls dresses in the middle of Sept. and we are picking out the tuxes on thursday.
I am playing around with the vases that were given to me for centerpieces, and trying to find candles that will burn longer than 4-5 hours! My reception is 6 hours.
I have to figure out table numbers, and favors. And the tasting in Oct.
I love it all! =)
I finally designed a cake, made water bottles (so dumb... haha), did mock trials of invites & programs.
I'm thinking I want to upgrade one of my centerpieces.
To Do List:
OMG - if I keep going (and I could) it will never end, starting to freak-out!
