Happy Wedding Month!

I cannot believe that it's already November! We've officially reached the month of the wedding and I couldn't be more excited! I still have SOOOOO much to do but I think it will all come together just fine.

I had grand ideas of having everything finished by Halloween but have completely blown that deadline.

I have a lot of 50-75% finished projects (and some not even started)... Among things left on my to-do list are:

Hotel goodie bags (something like these)
Country Wedding Decorations - Rustic Wedding Decor and Photos for your Rustic Country Weddingwelcome gift with local flare

Favors (apx. 80% finished)
-design tags in publisher, check! print on card stock, check (thanks Dad!) cut into tag shapes, check (thanks Dad!)  hole punched, check! strung tags with bakers twine, check! tied to favors... one last step... hopefully checked this weekend!

Table numbers
-printed, need frames... or to do something super clever like these... I'm also completely loving these ones below
brides of adelaide magazine - table number - wedding decorations - centrepiece - wedding table number
Silver Glitter Table Number Holders $64

Seating chart/escort cards
 - the wedding is less than a month away and I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do here... I figure I have til next week to decide since response cards are due back on the 8th.

Parent and attendant gifts (have in my possession, just need to be put together and wrapped)

Finalize music choices (for church and for reception)

have earrings - I think... need a bracelet and maybe a necklace... but if I get a necklace, I need smaller earrings.

Old, New, Borrowed, Blue
No, yes, yes, yes.

Frames for signage
and let's be honest, I have a few signs I need to finish too.

Props and frame for photo-wall
this might be one of those things that just doesn't happen...  but I do have a couple hundred tassels already made so we shall see...

imagine this in shades of ivory, white, silver, gold, and gray
or this but a bit more random
Photo booth tassel garland backdrop

church/pew decor
 bows? wreathes? candles? flowers? I haven't the slightest idea what I'm going to do here yet, but it'll be gorgeous :)

Finalize flower choices
meeting with my aunt in 2 weeks to place the order, and I can't wait to see what she does!

Confirm vendors
gotta sick Jay on them. Limo/trolley, videographer, photographer, hair/makeup, DJ

Rehearsal Dinner
another Jay task - he will confirm all the food/beverages and timing. I'll do the decorating

On top of that, I had a little chat with my photographer about adding 1 more little surprise to our agenda and I couldn't be more excited about it! (even if it does pile on another craft project to my already mounting list)

Time to get on the ball! I have a lot of work to do and not a lot of time to do it! Thankfully the election is just a few short days away and then I get my husband-to-be back for a few weeks!
