Good Morning Wedding Wire!

As of tomorrow we will be 1 month away from our big day! September is looking to be a super busy month for us. I have my final dress fitting next week, final appointment with our DJ, FH Bachelor Party, my Bachelorette, and 2 showers before the end of the month!

We check off so many items last week that have put us in a really good spot! We DIY our guest book and it looks AMAZING! (If anyone is artsy, or has done wood for their guest book, what did you use for guests to write on it?) Our flowers are all confirmed! We are rocking it!

Guest BookPlanning Milestone: last Month! 1

What have you accomplished in this last month of summer? What do you still need to do for September!?

    Definitely! Just to be safe, maybe throw a spray sealant on it once it's written on and it should all stay put forever Smiley smile

    Thank you so much! I was looking at the paint pens so I guess I’m going in the right direction.
    Super exciting! Getting our engagement pics and ordering save the dates was an amazing feeling!

    That looks awesome! I love live edge anything lol. You could use paint pens for writing on it - that's what I'm planning on using to make our signage. I believe calligraphers use them on wood a lot.

    It's a bit of a waiting game for us right now. Waiting for our florals invoice & contract and engagement photos from our photographer so we can order save the dates.

    Your guestbook looks amazing! The fact it was done by yourselves as a project is even better. Stenciling is spot on with the font. Love it!!!

    Thank you!

    It's so exciting yet stressful when there is so much to do at the end. I feel like I was so relaxed when I first started planning, but this month there isn't a weekend where I am not doing something wedding related!

    I'm so close to the one month mark too! I love your guestbook - super gorgeous!

    In August, We met with most of our vendors to confirm services - and pay balances. I also had my trials and shower so that was another thing that got done. We also ordered parent gifts and confirmed that the wedding party has ordered attire.

    For September, we're chasing down the 20 last RSVPs - most are my side (my mom's sisters) and then going over the seating chart. I'm not looking forward to it, but my mom and FH's sister have offered to help out! We also have to plan out our thank-you speech, and get our license. I also have a dress fitting this week, so we'll see if any more alterations are needed then!

    I'll be stressed anyway because that's just who I am as a person hahaha. but with buying a house and crunching final wedding numbers, it'll be a stressful but exciting time next July.

    Still exciting to have that plan set in place before the last couple of months so you aren't super stressed!

    That’s so exciting! We don’t have much going on, just going to keep paying down vendors and saving for our first home.

    YAY! So exciting. I just told my FH that he needs to get on the RSVP's from his side, there are a good 20 people on that side that haven't said anything yet!

    Thats amazing! Getting lots done and soo many fun things coming up Smiley smile It will get busy the last month- mine has flew by and only 2 weeks left.

    I have had a dress fitting- one left to go, met with the catering company, met with the photographer, confirmed with all vendors, picked up small things like bathroom baskets, wedding party gifts, ordered late night lunch, ordered food for breakfast day of and lunch for day of.

    My to do: print off photos of us and people for memorial table, print off seating chart, and then few small things like packing our bags and so forth!
