I figured I''d start a thread so I can feel bad about how far behind I am with everything!!! Wedding date is April 25 and according to my Facebook countdown that is just 76 days!

I have a dress (!!!) and I''m working on adding beads to my veil to give it a bit of sparkle. Flights and hotel are booked, I picked out the restaurant where I want to eat after the ceremony.

Still need to:
Decide on wedding bands
Pick out K''s clothing
Make invitations (gotta get on this!)
Put together small favors for people. We only have 8 guests coming and are doing "welcome" baskets for everyone. I''m planning on picking up most of the basket goodies once we get there, but I want to pick up a few things before we leave.

I''m sure there are a ton of things I should be doing but I haven''t thought of!

Still to do:
Favors
BM Gifts
Make place cards
Make bathroom baskets
Get my dress altered

Final playlist for DJ
Cake tasting - cake is included at our venue, our appt is at the end of the month
Get to the florist... mom works there, so I''m not rushed on this.

In the works:
Invites - DIY, mostly done. But I have an appt at the caterer Fri to decide on final menu.
Decide on vows/ceremony details

Probably a lot more that I''m forgetting.

We have our tasting next week, which will help me cross a few things off the list that night, but we are doing well on the checklist. Parents gift and rehearsal dinner invites up next. And a headpiece; I got the veill but still need the headband.


Blissful- I think you actually have less than that. EricaR''s says the same day and it''s only 76 (not to freak ya out
)

Hi Alison! You're wedding's the day after mine!

I plan on sending them out the 18th or 19th. They're pretty much done, I just need to address a few more and print out the RSVP and Reception cards with the correct menu choices, which we'll decide on Friday.
