-ordered bridal gown (ordered at trunk show in April)
-purchased TTD gown
-deposit placed for resort
-deposit placed for photographer
-bridal misc purchased=shoes, flip flops, hair flower, spanx
-purchased FI's suit
-misc OOT bag items=playing cards, personal fans, keycard/tip holder, beach towels
-finished some of DIY projects=program fans, shell bout's for groomsmen, "bling" strands for huppah decor
-purchased pail for flowergirls
-purchased shells for ring bearer
-purchased flip flops for unprepared guest for ceremony/reception
-boarding pass Save-the-Date's sent
-purchased MOH/BM gift totes
-emailed groomsmen to get fitted for linen suits
-engagement session scheduled for next week thursday (EEK! I'm so nervous about this!)
Things to do:
-LOSE 10 POUNDS
-DIY floral/floating strands for huppah decor
-purchase our wedding bands
-decide on flowers and table centerpieces
-purchase bridal jewelry=earrings, bracelet
-book welcome/rehearsal dinner
-purchase gifts for MOH/BM/GM
-choose songs and make playlists
My list can go on and on... this is just the tip of the ice berg of things I need to do! I thought I had everything under control!!
I did give my MOH and BM their choice to choose anything they want to wear, I gave them the color swatch, and let them loose. I trust my girls to choose their own styles. But I am a little worried that they have not started to look for their dresses, aqua and coral is a spring/summer color, and with our wedding in january, if they procrastinate, they won't find anything during the winter. GRRRRRR
But, I won't stress myself about that.. I have other things to stress about!
things DONE and i can cross off the list:
-Purchased my bridal jewelry
-decided on guest table centerpieces
-lost 4lbs--6 more to go
-purchased our toasting flutes
-Took TTD to a seamstress who's a family friend to get altered.
-My dress finally came in and my first dress fitting is scheduled on 8/29/09!!
And to update my BM and MOH dress'
I was losing sleep with the whole BM dress subject. So i took it to my own hands to do the searching for them. SO, This weekend, I found the perfect BM dress that has both of our colors-aqua and coral. It was on sale at Macy's so i purchased all 5 of them. So, this week, i have to drop them off to the girls to for them to try on. Hopefully they fit. But, the good thing is, it's totally alter-able. WHEW!!!
