So I have to regig everything again - go back to the resort with new table seatings, menu choices etc.... and wait til monday to hear from our travel agent if she can still come on the trip she paid for but cancelled.... Ah family drama. Feels good to vent amongst people who understand.

    ANYWAY - With 3 weeks to go - I was wondering what you guys have on your todo lists? I don't want to forget anything - and so I figured if some of you could share those last minute to dos - then we can all be sure we aren't missing anything.

     For me -

    • I picked up kids gifts for their min oot bags,
    • Practice first kiss (they say this is important)
    • practice first dance
    • Need to buy new suitcase (mine broke last week)
    • finish downloading all music
    • buy sexy underwear for night of wedding
    • pack oot bag boxes and own luggagge
    • wrap bm and gm gifts
    • Finish welcome book - update and finalize agenda
    • Crafts to finish escort cards, door hangers
    • Book Car to take us to the airport (taxi or towncar for group)
    • Take Ring in for cleaning before we leave
    • Oh yah... write vows
    • Write Bride and Groom thank you speech

     

    Yikes, McLecker... hope the family situation gets sorted out okay!

     

    The only things we have in addition to yours above are:

     

    • finalize menus for Thanksgiving night dinner and reception dinner
    • find out the table set up for reception dinner so I can do seating arrangements and decor
    • buy unsexy but appropriate :-) under-wear for certain outfits
    • confirm contracts with vendors and pay balances
    • create a registry (we weren't going to do this due to asking fam/friends to make this big trip, but we've been convinced otherwise...)
    • make a detailed master schedule for our four days of events
    • plan the honeymoon (a-hem, so late on this)
    • make a guestbook of sorts
    • think of favors (leaning towards a Mexican sweet? ideas welcome...)
    • assign point people (for tours and activities/formal photos/cocktail hour, etc.)

    I'm not sure of the appropriate send-off, so: and  !!! Have a great time, AllieH!!! Will be thinking of you on Nov. 5 and sending happy wedding vibes!

          Ok, just as a warning, it's a bit overkill :)  My MOH is a wedding planner and really likes details! Haha, hope it helps at least!

            No worries; better to have too many details than not enough, I say!! Could you cut and paste it though? I don't seem to have access to download!

                    To those of you having your formal pix taken during the cocktail hour, did your photographer say anything about the lighting at that time?

                    Our ceremony is from 4:30-5 so my photog says b/c of sundown at 5pm, he thinks we should take the formal pix before the ceremony. Thoughts?

                    I haven't met with my photographer yet for our final meeting..but I'm sure she'll say something along those lines- that is why we are going to tyry and get most of pics done before the wedding and hopefully have everything done by 5 and then just do sunset pics after that
