Today it is 5 months to go to our wedding. And tomorrow it will be 4 months and 30 days to go. Addicted to all things wedding planning, yes maybe, freaked out.. hell no! Was just going through my to do list, to make list and I'm getting on top of it. Lots of crossed out things so its getting less and less as time passes. This post is quite word and list heavy so I apologise, it's also a reminder for me which I can access on my phone when out and about.
|The count down till the big day (my photo)|
Big things to do:
- Order wedding bands - have almost sorted mine, FH will order his when he gets home.
- Suits - FH has paid a deposit on them - will have his fitting in September
- Wedding Dress - fitting and pick up this Friday 25th May - so can't wait - will have it fitted closer to the time as well.
- Bridesmaids Dresses -Awaiting for them to be made and come into the shop should be July/August I think
- Music - have almost decided the big ceremony songs, only need to find the recessional song now.
- Reception music - have no idea! But we have a bit more time to go for that
- Seating plan - can wait till FH gets home
- Food tasting - will happen when FH gets home - going to be yummy!!!
- MC - meet with the new one in August and plan how its going to run.
