The Final Countdown

Hey ladies, guess what! I'm getting married in 2 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's my to-do list for the next two nights...

*Seating Chart (we're still having people fluctuating with their responses)
*Centerpieces (only did 1 so far... need 14)
*Design our program and print them (holy moly... that's a big task)
*Put together wedding favors (S'more Kits)
*Make parking/wedding signs
*Organize materials for guestbook area at reception
*Create a label for our card box
*Make signs for the bathroom bins
*Hair swirls (with bling and pearls)
*Finish up bridesmaids gifts (have to figure out something with jewelry... hmm)
*Put together groomsmen gifts (not sure why I volunteered to do this for Jeff)- haha
*Combine Itunes playlists (I have them split into slow, fast, line dance lists right now)- that way all our DJ has to do is push play!
*Wrap wire around the tops of mason jars to make them hangeable... and add pebbles to the bottom so our candles stay in place
*Table Number Displays- I already printed the pictures (they are amazing!!)
*Burlap aisle cones (this is just extra... and it probably won't get done)

Stuff that's done (hopefully after I type this it will be a longer list than above.

*Save the Dates
*Crossword Puzzle (designed and printed 100 copies)
*Cake Stands (3 made)
*Trail Mix Bar (all designed, all ingredients bought)
*Signs Painted
*Trail Mix Pouches purchased (burlap bags)
*My Mrs. undies (bedazzled)- (my "something blue")
*1/2 of the gifts for my bridesmaids
*All supplies purchased
*Twine balls made

Okay, that's disheartening... looks like there's a lot more that needs to be done than has already been completed. Yikes.

Tonight = nails done, pick up my dress, then spending time with my maid of honor to work on projects!

Tomorrow = work on projects early in the morning, set up reception site, rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, work on projects with the ladies that spend the night with me...

Saturday = GET MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. wow, super excited! If I hadn't been following you for awhile, I'd be a little worried about your checklist, but having seen what you've been doing in a short period of time, I know you can get it done. Get crackin'!! Many many many best wishes!! Congrats and GOOD LUCK!!!!

  2. OH my 2 days? You have alot on your plate.. but with determination I'm sure you'll get it done. Remember some things dont matter as much as we think they .. dont stress over the small stuff that no one will notice but you! Good Luck!!

  3. For our groomsmen gifts we are buying them each a set of Pilsner glasses(fancy beer glasses) and a 6 pack of their favorite beer. I figured it is easy and they will love it. I know that you will get everything done. I say recruit everyone you can, haha! Good luck and I can't wait to see pics of the big day!
