October 08 Brides - What's Left to Do

Recommended Posts

I can't even think about what still needs to be done... Give some time and I'll post it all! I did do the invitations the other night with my mom though, they just need stamps and they're off!

I love lists. Lists get me through the day. I have an on-going Wedding Stuff list actually. At all times, I carry my little notebook around in my purse. Just in case I think of something else I need to do or another song I hear on the radio that I want to add to the play list.

Here's what I have on my list of things to do for my October wedding:
Find Tommy Bahama shirt for groom and his father (we're not having a wedding party - they're it)
Order guest book from The Knot
Order Polaroid camera for guest book
Organize growing pile of bridal magazines in corner of bedroom along with all other bridal junk
Order wedding flipflops
Find shoes! Yes - I must have both
Get dress altered (need shoes first)
Get final proof of invitations (why won't she call me backhuh.gif?)
Get invitations addressed by calligrapher
Mail invitations
Ceremony Programs
Order fans for ceremony programs
Arrange and mail PV packets for wedding guests
Get mini-maid's dress for my daughter - not really a bridesmaid, not a MOH, but a mini-maid : )
Print place cards
OOT bags
Order Spanish for Dummies for OOT bags
Make centerpieces and cake toper
Find wedding bands

So much of this depends on how many people will actually be coming to the wedding, too. My webpage on The Knot really has been helpful with a list of Things to Do, too.

I've got so much to do! This is scary looking at this list...

This made me LOL...I have a huge stack in my bedroom. My housekeeper finally organized them for me and put them on a chest I have in front of my bed. She probably thinks I am nuts!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
