Where are you on your list? What all needs to be completed still?

Things I have completed this week:

- put together my invites- wrapped a ribbon around the few cards that were there (100) plus reception invites (50)

- mailed out invitations for wedding

- paid off: photographer, catering company, reception venue, weekend stay x2 cottages

- paid/picked up ring bands

- mailed out thank you cards for raffle prize at buck and doe

- signed wills

- returned all empties from buck and doe/sorted them first

- returned the left over booze from buck and doe

- booked kennel for my dog during times needed this summer


This week has been a huge pressure off of my back! Only mistake was I wrote the wrong date on my invites for my bridal shower and had to re-order... Oops! Things happen

    I'm not talking about how much I still have to do and only 20 odd days to get it done.

    Wow what a productive week! It must feel so great to get that all checked off.

    I booked a couple dress shopping appointments for the end of June and I'm so excited! Next I need to confer with our photographer, my hairstylist, and makeup artist to sort out a date in the fall for engagement photos.

    Nah, I was just lazy! When FH purchased the ring, he made sure to get the lifetime warranty, which includes a free sizing!

    Thats great! I still have to do my wine and figure all of that out. James needs to figure out a date that works for the guys to go get measured for suits/give timeline of when needs to be ordered by.

    Wow that is amazing to get all that paid off!

    Right now I am just making sure I have addresses, last names plus ones etc. for all my guests. I addressed all the labels of the people that I already had.

    My labels have come in.

    I ordered my bridal shower dress and that has come in.

    We will be working on our guest book, wine box, and suits for the guys this weekend

    Yes thankfully it didn't cost me much and luckily the sizes they had in the store fit us perfectly! Was shocked

    I'm glad it didn't cost you much. Also that majority of the invites were still kept back.

    Wedding bands for my husband and I had to be resized after the wedding as I had to get a clip to hold onto my finger for the wedding day. Its crazy how much more we pay to get it done and once.

    I had a credit on the account and just re-ordered them. My family hasn't sent them out yet and his mom only set out a few. I had the company fix other mistakes of mine in the past so didn't want to have to ask again for favor. In the end didn't cost me much to reorder

    Any chance you are sending out a separate invite for the wedding shower (if you are having one)? If so then just make sure to put it on there Smiley smile

    I picked up my wedding band this week after getting it resized! My FH has had his band for awhile and I've had mine since September - I was putting of the sizing lol

    What a busy week and so much slashed off the list to do. About the shower, is the company willing to make new cards due to the wrong date? Otherwise, having both mothers making calls to let family members know about the shower date is easier than printing new cards and paying if not free from the company.

    Oh goodness - I got stuff done, but not wedding related.

    - made an offer and down payment on a trailer for camping

    - started getting some RSVP's

    But now that you mention the kennel for your dog I for sure need to look into getting my dog into one for my FH's cousin's wedding this July and again for our wedding in October!
