The biggest things I have left to do are the ceremony programs, finalizing the musicians for the church and finalizing transportation from hotel to church and back. There are many little things but I figure if I don't get them done then oh well!

 

Congrats to all the May brides. We have about a month to go!

Carly, can you believe it's going to be here in just over a month?!? I forget...what days are you flying down/back?

We asked Mike's uncle to do the blessing before dinner. I think it's the father of the groom that does it usually, but FI's dad is deceased so we asked his uncle. Also, our Best Man and MOH are doing toasts (we didn't ask them, but I assume they are).

My Things to Do....

  • Slideshow for Rehearsal/Welcome Dinner
  • Finish up Vows
  • Print out emails, confirmations, etc.
  • Print & assemble menus, welcome letter and programs
  • FI's wedding shirt and shoes (have the suit and tie)
  • My Rehearsal outfit
  • burn New Zealand Songs for DJ (in case he doesn't have)
  • GM & BM Timelines (almost done jsut waiting on final from WC)
  • Pack
  • buy a few cosmetic items (running low)
  • pick up wedding bands and check engravings

 

That's it. the two things weighing on me are the Slideshow and printing out and assembling the programs and menus. OTher than that I feel pretty good.

I am doing ok.

Still need to get list for Dj and Photographer.

Get the cake all set.

Finish programs

and lots of little stuff that can easily be done.

 

Right now I am very happy I did lots of stuff early so I am not SUPER stressed when other things arise.

I have finals next week and after that it's all about the wedding.

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
    • Hello, we're butterfly farmers and pleased to be bringing eco-friendly butterfly releases back to destination weddings in Jamaica. Videos of our releases can be found here: https://youtu.be/LIzidGsR89o One love,   Nadine   Fruit Hill Butterfly Farm fruithillbutterflies.com 
    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
