Things You Meant to Do but Didn't Get To

Recommended Posts

I keep thinking (long after the wedding is over) of things that I really wanted to do for our wedding at the time but ran out of time to do. DH once said to me that if I was an animal that needed to hibernate in the winter I would die. LOL It really cracked me up and is a perfect example of how I procrastinate.

 

Here is my list:

1. Paint and label colorful maracas for the reception

2. Create a list of important pics for the photog

3. Schedule the reception- we had no speeches sad.gif (also my dad and MOH's fault, they didn't even plan them which kind of makes me mad...they shouldn't have to be told to write them IMHO) and only one brief toast.

4. I completely forgot to do something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue

5. Create a song playlist

6. Place cards

7. Menu Cards

8. Table Numbers

9. Re-do and correct post cards

 

I try not to procrastinate as much now but old habits die hard wink.gif

LOL Even though you didn't do those things I'm sure you still had the most amazing wedding!!! In the end no one remembers place cards or whether you wore something borrowed! But you made me think, maybe I do need to remind a few people about a speech. Thanks for sharing!

That is interesting bc I am sure your wedding was awesome and it didn't have any of those things! I am thinking of skipping speeches b/c they are usually horrible and boring or involve the maid of honor crying about how much she loves the bride, lol! Thats good to think that if I am running out of time I can about place cards, menu cards, or table numbers lol! all ways to stress less thanks!

your replies really cracked me up! Some of you are putting these things on your "to-do" list and others of you are saying if there are things that you can go without, it's these thing! haha I love it. If it helps even one person then it's so worth it! :)

    • 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?
