^^AHH!!! How exciting, Maura!!!

 

Ladies, I wanted to share this with you. Brides.com sent me this 1-month-to-go Check-off list that I thought you guys may find helpful, too:

 

Congratulations: Your wedding is just 1 month away!

Stay on schedule by tackling these tasks.

 

Call guests who have not mailed back their response cards.

Make your place cards.

Finalize your vows.

Pick up your wedding dress.

Confirm your honeymoon reservations.

Decide whether you want a ceremonial send-off, with rose petals or bubbles; purchase these materials.

Give must-shoot lists to your photographer and videographer.

Give must-play and do-not-play lists to your reception musicians.

Distribute wedding-weekend task lists to key helpers.

Do some stress-relieving activity every day.

Apply for your marriage license.

Call guests who have not mailed back their response cards. need to send my civil ceremony invites this weekend, theyre all confirmed as coming, the invite is just a formality at this point.

Make your place cards. not doing this since only 8 guests for civil ceremony and not doing a sit down dinner with all of them

Finalize your vows. NEED TO DO THIS!

Pick up your wedding dress. NEED TO GET MY ALTERATIONS ON THE CIVIL CEREMONY DRESS! shouldnt take long, just have to actually go to the tailor to have it taken up a few inches. must do that in the next week because i have TTD shoot with a local photog on june 22nd

Confirm your honeymoon reservations. DONE, my FI took care of this

Decide whether you want a ceremonial send-off, with rose petals or bubbles; purchase these materials. not doing this one :)

Give must-shoot lists to your photographer and videographer. my dad is shooting our civil ceremony since he used to be a wedding photog. i will give him the sheet of photos to be sure to get when i see him this weekend

Give must-play and do-not-play lists to your reception musicians. we just got this questionnaire for our DJ for cabo, so we need to sit down to fill it out

Distribute wedding-weekend task lists to key helpers. i need to make lists of these things for both the CC and the DW!

Do some stress-relieving activity every day. trying to :)

Apply for your marriage license. we have to do this the last week of june. i already got all the requirements: need state ID and $30 cash fee

Wow. Your seamstress has some nerve. Tell her to frog off! LOL. :) How rude! I am sure your BMs will look lovely! I've gotta do that CD for the band-break thing, too. Your wedding is a day before mine! :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
