So, as of yesterday we were 5 MONTHS away from the big day and I literally committed to 3 bridal showers.... the calendar is filling up and time is running out! Here's what I've taken care of and still have yet to do:
Book florist (talking with her tomorrow!)
Book ceremony musician(s) (My grandmother is the music master and is helping!)
Take engagement pictures (waiting until better weather in March!)
Select and order groom and groomsmen attire (going to look this Saturday!)
Book cake baker (testing on Saturday... SO pumped.)
Buy cake knife and server (registered for a Kate Spade one!)
Order save the dates (picture or no picture... that is the question.)
Finalize guest list (the WORST part. Almost done, though!)
Send save the dates.
Pre-marital counseling (planning on starting this month!)
Order guest book
MOB & MOG dress shopping (my mom is so anxious about it, haha!)
Find wedding shoes (I have a pair, but keeping my options open)
Find wedding jewelry (After this post, thinking I need a gorgeous necklace!)
Find garter (Do I really have to? This makes me uncomfortable, haha)
Book make up and hair stylist
Take bridal portraits
1st dress fitting
2nd dress fitting
Order ceremony programs
Order invitations (looking today!)
Buy RD dress
Order cocktail napkins
Bridal party gifts (slowly getting there!)
Bachelorette party (My wonderful MOHs Parkes and Natalie will make it great!)
Purchase wedding bands
Get marriage license
Music selections to band and ceremony artist (harder than it sounds to decide!)
Walk down the aisle!!
Well, we've definitely accomplished a lot, but we still have a bit to go it seems! Thankfully, both sets of parents have been super helpful and supportive-- we are so blessed. I forsee many appointments and thank you notes in my future, but I know I'll miss the busyness when it's over!
Here's to 5 months left!!!
