Nov 08 brides

Recommended Posts

After my last post I saw my siggy. OMG 6 months 2 weeks left. I started to tear up and than panic struck. WTH where did all my time go. I feel like I have nothing done. I couldn't do much during tax season since I was working all week and all weekend so i never noticed the time flying by. I did buy a whole bunch of stuff for Welcome Bags/OOT bags and my favors, both of which could of waited to get done. But besides that all I have done is purchased my dress, send STDs, Oh Crap i think that's it!

 

I have to make a list of what i have to do. So what do you all you Nov brides or any other brides have done at this point?

 

I'm totally freaking!!!

Oh that is so funny! I was thinking the same thing, I mean it sounds like a lot of time but I remember when my ticker was in the double digits. You are ahead of me in the OOT department. I was going to try to wait until we had a better head count to order stuff. I have my dress and my flowergirls and MOH dress done. Have my FI ring bought, mine has been done for awhile. Need to finalize his outfit and his guys and my dad. Have DJ booked, flowers and centerpieces picked, but thats about it. Stressing about the dumb OOTs though, want them to be cute but dont want to spend too much! Ahhhh feel better now that I got that out. Phew thanks for starting this thread.

I think you got a lot done. The OOT bags are easy and there are so many good ideas on this site for them. You should be fine.

 

I just spent my whole work day making a list of things i have to get done. Lots of things to do!

Dont feel so bad, I haven't done much either...I'm also waiting to get a better head count before starting my OOT bags; although I have been picking up things here and there bc I cant help it...for the OT bags I bought travel candles and the spanish dummy books. Other things I have done is: purchased my dress, my starfish bouquet jewelry, sent STDs, BM's have ordered their dresses (except one slacker), and I bought my "table-number" holders. I feel like I have a ton to do but dont know whats priority, agghhhh

I'm with you! I thought we still had so much time, but man it's really coming up quickly!

 

But you are definitely ahead of me. I haven't even begun to purchase things for our OOT bags. But really, I don't feel I have a lot to do. Basically just the OOT bags.... put I'm sure there are things I'm not thinking of!

 

As of now, the things left on my mental to-do, which obviously isn't fool proof! is buy FIs wedding wear, find MOH dress, fix wedding band so it fits better with E ring, but OOT stuff. Oh, and seating chart, and wedding songs. But I think that's about it...... i hope anyway!

Well, let's see.

I have my dress but am waiting to be skinnier to do the alterations, bought FI's suit and pants for the best man. I still need to buy accessories for my dress and go dress shopping with my sister for her BM dress. I booked the mariachi and need to send an email to the WC to reserve the Portofino restaurant for my reception. I have my OOT canvas bags but still need to have my stepbrother screenprint them, got my travel mugs. Need to buy cuban wedding shirts for FI and best man and a tropical shirt for my dad & maybe my stepdad.

 

We have booked the photographer for Mexico, the hall, caterer and dj for the AHR. Planning on ordering AHR invites tonight (still on sale). Have to make some more deposits sad.gif

I also need to pick up some more stuff for the OOT bags (maraca pens, tropical notepads, homemade cd's).
