Eat Drink & Be Mary: M A Y "TO-DOs" : wedding edition


M A Y "TO-DOs" : wedding edition

That's right folks, come Friday we will be T H R E E months from walking down the aisle and starting our forever.  It makes me want to jump for joy really.  Seriously.  I just can't wait.  Come on August...we're ready for you.  Well, almost..which brings me to our wedding checklist 3 months out.

May's To-Do List:

+ DIY table numbers & centerpieces

+ find the rest of tablecloths & table runners

+ book hair trial for June

+ get Unity item & deciding on wording for ceremony

+ finalize arrangements for rehearsal & rehearsal dinner 

+ get Groom's gift

+ decide if we are writing our own vows or not

+ decide on programs

+ have my bridal shower woot woot!

+ start addressing RSVP envelopes
+ take full invitation to the post office to figure out postage
+ assemble invitations

+ meet with DJ & florist
+ purchase parents gifts

+ purchase flower girl/ring bearer gifts

+ purchase in-laws gifts

+ ordered toasting flutes

+ DIY "something old" (sounds odd, but to incorporate my something old it's needs a little work)

+ order bachelorette favors

...and before I start to feel overwhelmed looking at this months to-do list, let's take a look back to see how productive April was!

- Register
- Pick out Groom's attire
- Settle on Honeymoon location & it's booked!!

- Pick up wedding dress & veil -- eek!
- Decide on bridesmaids' jewelry
- Find bridal jewelry
- purchase wedding favors
- get the men fitted for their tuxes (Thomas, my dad & brothers: check!)
- get belly bands
- ordered stamp for return addressing
- had my first (work) shower

Excited doesn't begin to cover it y'all.  Can't wait to steal that hunk of mine's last name..although I bet he would gladly give it to me so I didn't have to steal it. ;)

  1. So fun! We have about a month left!!! Ahhhhhhh!

  2. You are getting SO close!! I smiled several times while reading your checklist, I had so much fun doing some of those things you listed. For our RSVp envelopes I ordered a stamp from Etsy (this shop-, I hand addressed the save-the-dates and I couldn't feel my fingers for days ;) I also have not started working on our ceremony or decided a unity item yet- ah!

  3. Wow - three months!! You are getting there, for sure!! It looks like you're getting so much done and are onto the fun stuff like diys and buying presents (that was some of my favorite for sure! Happy Wedding Wednesday :)

  4. Hi Mary! I'm Mary, too! Joining from the linkup :)
    I love that photo of you two - so sweet! And seems like you're doing so well with your check list! The three month mark is SO exciting! Have fun with your last portion of the planning!

  5. So much to do!! It's funny because all of the wedding checklists are like a year long, and most people in Utah get married in six months or less. I had four months to plan a wedding, so we had to combine the checklists just like you! :)

  6. Gah! I am two months away and getting so excited.

    I have 2 months myself!

    Going to the post office to confirm postage is key! We have square shaped invites so we had to be REALLY precise! Also, make a spreadsheet now of all the guests and all the dinner options (I can share mine if you need automatically calculated totals) because the RSVPS are going to ROLL IN (sometimes 9 at a time lol)


  8. These three months will fly by with your list of things to do! Good luck and remember not to get too stressed :)

  9. Looks like things are coming right along! August will be here before you know it!!

  10. You are so close! August will be here before you know it and you'll be walking down the aisle! You've got this!

  11. Girl, you've got this! It's all fun stuff!

  12. That's not too bad! The hardest part is probably assembling the invitations.. but once you get into a rhythm it goes kinda fast. I did it all by myself though, because I didn't trust anyone else at all haha =) So excited to see your wedding!!

  13. I plan on doing that this month, and hopefully just taking my time doing them will make it not as bad. I can see myself being the same way too, haha.

  14. Thanks! Yeah, I'm definitely excited to conquer it all and mark it off our lists! :)

  15. I know, August seems so far away but when I think about how it's only 3 months away I know it'll fly by. I can't wait either. :)

  16. Agreed Evelina, these checklists are helping me stay sane. I'm working on not being far so good. ;)

  17. Ah so exciting Lauren. I'm so excited for the RSVPs to roll in, although we won't actually be sending them out until the beginning of June haha. I'm planning on making a similar spread sheet for sending them, receiving RSVPs and thank you notes. Gotta stay organized! :)

  18. Yay, how exciting Mae. It'll be here for both of us before we know it!

  19. Oh wow, four months is impressive. I've loved making these checklists though. They keep me feeling organized, and accomplished looking back at past months.

  20. Thanks Mary! It'll be here before we know it, I'm sure...better get to these things on my list.

  21. I'm really looking forward to starting on some of these DIYs. I love crafting and plan on doing some of them with my bridesmaids. :) Picking out gifts was really fun, and I can't wait to see everyone's reactions when they open them.

  22. I've got several things in mind for the ceremony, but I'd like to have it set in stone a little more. I did end up ordering a stamp and definitely plan on using it for the return address on the invitations. Are you using the stamp for the main address on the RSVPs too? I was hoping to, but didn't know if that was looked down upon or something (all this dern wedding etiquette).

  23. Ah it'll fly exciting!! Yay, I'm so happy for you.

  24. Checklists are my favorite too!!


It makes me so happy each time you leave a comment. I love connecting with my readers! Happy blogging friends.
