Wedding planning update: 24 days to go

22 August 2012

Yikes, time for our next update already! We have been super productive, though, I must say.

Reminder on our kitchen chalkboard this week

Since my last update:
— We alerted our ushers to their ushering duties
— I finalized all linen and rental orders, and our floor plan
— I assembled drink stirrers
— We invited guests to the rehearsal dinner and alerted our rehearsal participants to the rehearsal
— I designed our programs and designed and printed stickers for our welcome bags
— I purchased John’s gift (WHOO!)
— We deputized rehearsal dinner detail planning to John’s very talented sister
— I lettered three more pieces of signage
— We received our ring bearer bowl and switched out the ribbon for one matching our palette (so pretty!)
— We bought a second cat carrier (Yes, this counts as a wedding-related to do, because — per special request from the groom — our cats will be joining us for the drive up North and the week before the wedding. No, I am not kidding.)
— I bought a rehearsal dinner dress (THANK YOU for all of your help!)

A few of the tasks to be completed this week:
— Invite guests to Sunday brunch
— More signage
— Assemble slideshow (almost done scanning photos!)
— Put together our menu board
— Print the wrappers for our favors
— Finalize our wedding day schedule and reception songs (first dance, last song, etc.)
— Print maps, welcome bag pieces, and ceremony programs
— Make final selections for our bar

  1. Wow, you have 24 days and I have 8 days!!! Curious, do you know where I can get the clear acrylic serving trays? I want to be able to customize one myself…..I have a monogram that we’ve used throughout and want to use it for it as well. I had one ordered, called to check on it and was told it is back ordered till September!
    Thanks!
