Yes I have been completely MIA lately because I have a crazy to-do list that keeps getting longer. We are now under 60 days in the wedding countdown and that means that we have a lot of details to manage so that our big day is not a big disaster. I also want things done in advance and in a very organized fashion so that I can enjoy our wedding day. I saw some version of this on a wedding website but I've looked at so many that I honestly can't remember which one it was so I can't link back to the post unfortunately. Here's my version of the Alphabet Game, Wedding Style.
A- Appointments need to be made for manis/pedis and hair for myself and all my bridesmaids.
B- Bridesmaid gifts need to be completed. I can't reveal what these gifts are but they are handmade by yours truly and a bit more time consuming than I imagined (possibly due to procrastination on my part.)
C- Ceremony order has to be decided, including the who goes with who in the processional.
D- Dress is being altered and needs to be picked up in 10 days. Yay!
E- Emotional... that would be me, the bride upon seeing/hearing any wedding related show, music, etc.
F- Flowers are decided on and out of my hands. Luckily I trust our florist so this is the least of my worries.
G- Gifts for parents and groomsmen need to be decided and purchased.
H- Hairstyle has been chosen and needs a trial run whenever I find a hair salon.
I- Invitations to the rehearsal dinner/baptism of Baby need to be ordered or made and sent STAT.
J- Jubilation is what I feel when I think about the fact that we are actually going to be married in less than 2 months!
K- Kiss, as in the first kiss... do we practice? do we just go with the moment?
L- Lingerie for under my gown needs to be purchased.
M- Map of the country club grounds needs to be put together for the welcome bags for out of towners.
N- Nails- will I go falsey for the wedding so that my hands look extra pretty in the pictures??
O- Officiant is going to be wonderful and we're so happy that we already know him so we don't have to worry about whether he will make our ceremony special and meaningful.
P- Payment schedule needs to be mapped out so we know when vendors need final checks.
Q- Quiche... not on the menu. Quail... not on the menu either.
R- Rehearsal order needs to be written and sent to officiant and wedding coordinator at the club. Let's all be on the same page.
S- Shoes are ordered and need to be picked up for modifications to be shown later.
T- Topper for the cake needs to be found if I think that would be cute and kitschy and old school and kind of fun.
U- Uphill... the direction I need to be walking on a regular basis to keep shaping up for the wedding.
V- Vows need to be determined. Traditional? Yes. But what version?
W- Welcome bags need to be designed and necessary items need to be purchased/made.
X- eXactly what was I thinking when I decided to wait until the last minute to finish the rest of the bridesmaid gifts?? I claim temporary insanity.
Y- Yummy dessert or cake needs to be decided on ASAP.
Z- ZZZs... I could use some!
