One Month Out

Dudettes. We are now approximately one month out from K + C’s wedding. Here’s what a small sampling of my to-do list looks like:

Print direction and information cards for welcome bags
Print welcome bag hang tags

Design and print signage for whoopee pies

Buy linen for specialty reception tables

Finish designing ceremony programs and print and assemble them

Print signs for bride and groom cottages

Find a box for the ceremony programs

Create a wedding weekend timeline

Collect more driftwood and deliver it to our driftwood arch constructor

String mini paper bunting for buffet stations

Design and print buffet menus
Design, print, and construct pinwheels for part of reception decor

Make signage for favors

Cut waxed paper for rehearsal dinner bunting, centerpieces, and bags

Assemble rope boutonnieres for groomsmen

Design and make signage for cookie buffet

I’ll stop, because I don’t want you to run screaming in the other direction. Am I worried it’s all going to get done? A little. Are all of these projects necessary? Nope. If they don’t get done, will K + C still get married? Yes, ma’ams. Knowing all this, am I still trying to get as many projects done as possible? You bet I am.

You see, I want Kate’s wedding to be the most special day it can be, and I’m determined to do anything I can to make it that way for her with the least possible stress. So, yes: I’ll make as many trips to Michael’s as it takes, stay up as late as it takes, remove as many things off her plate as it takes, to make sure those two things happen. And come August, I know it will all be worth it. Wish me luck!

    I. Love. You.

    Also, I can do the ropes for the boutonnieres! I finally figured out what kind of knot to use…

    I think you must have more energy than the Energizer bunny! Good luck with completing all of your To Do's. I know they will all get done and everything will be wonderful!

    And we did it all! Except finding a box for the programs. We came up with a better solution :)
