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 (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

    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! :)
