Some other things that might apply to you:

OOT bags

Organize what YOU want to do during your stay (something I didn't realize I had yet to do!)

Seating chart (if you need one)

Welcome letter to guests

gifts for MOH, BM, etc...

 

 

I'll keep thinking...I need ideas too!

I think there was a thread like this a couple months ago, but I can't seem to find it. Anyway- this was my list 2 months ago, and I just updated it today (thanks for the reminder!). It's kinda funny to see what I got done and what I didn't since February. I don't know if maybe something on my old list will remind you of something you need to do...

 

To do list

  • LOSE 20 POUNDS!!! lol does 5 count?
  • Book flight done (last week- yikes!)
  • Decide if having legal wedding or not (if so, deal with all the drama that goes along with it) Done, still need to email Mariana to confirm exactly what paperwork we need to bring
  • Go for dress fittings (for 2 dresses- yikes!) Final fitting is Thursday
  • Buy shoes and jewelry, lingerie Done
  • Buy Jeff's suit and accessories Still searching for the perfect tie
  • Decide on and order BM dresses (I think we're going with the Babydoll that I posted) Done
  • Decide on and purchase groomsmen attire Done
  • Find Flower girl dress Done
  • Decide on and purchase bridal party gifts
  • Taste, decide on, and order cake Done. Tres Leches with white choc & strawberries
  • Finalize guest list, number of tables Done
  • Meet with Mariana at Dreams for Food tasting Done
  • Decide on Menu Done
  • Hair and Makeup trial while on site visit (decide who to try and book appointments) Done, decided to do trial just before wedding
  • Confirm all appointments
  • Get Hair and nails done prior to leaving for Cabo- have backup nail plan for unexpected disasters in Cabo
  • Order wedding bands Done- pick them up Wed
  • Reserve rental car
  • Reserve DJ, come up with song list No DJ-just IPOD, need song list
  • Reserve Mariachi or trio (still can't make up my mind!!!) Reserved Trio- need to confirm
  • Make up my mind between fire dancers and/or fireworks Neither
  • Decide on flowers, including my bouquet Done
  • Decide on centerpieces Done
  • Buy and ship paper lanterns for reception Bought- bringing with
  • Make luminarias Done
  • Make placecards Done
  • Make menus Done
  • Make fans with thank you note Done
  • Make and send invitations Done
  • Schedule boarding condo reservations for Loomis (the dog) Done
  • Decide on Welcome dinner and menu Done

 

So, in addition to the couple items that still need to be addressed from the original list, I need to pack, get birth certificates, etc in order, find an outfit for Jeff for our trash-the-dress pics, and mail out welcome letters.

 

It doesn't seem like I have that much to do, yet why do I feel like I'm missing so much and will freak out two days before I leave? lol

Anny, I cannot tell if you are trying to have a honeymoon baby... or not! Just kidding!

Sarah, I am 9 months away from my wedding but looking through the DW book I have, here are the suggestions for 3 to 6 weeks before:

Arrange other weekend events
Send pre-wedding packet to guests
Finalize ceremony
Plan welcome bags
Get prescriptions filled
Buy attendant gifts
Shop for honeymoon attire
Make hair and beauty appointments

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
