Feel Like Something is Missing?

Holly, on 25/March/2019 at 15:51 Posted in Plan a wedding

So with just about 2 months left I am really feeling the pressure! I feel like I am missing something, you know kinda like I forgot to do something..

Here is what I have and maybe you can help.

Wedding Attire:

My dress: just needs alterations
FH's suit: Custom made, ordered and waiting for his fitting
Bridesmaids: Ordered waiting to arrive in store
Groomsmen suits and accessories: Set up but waiting on them to go get fitted (that's a whole other issue we are having!!)
My accessories: Mostly done just need jewelry
FH accessories: Just about done, will finish when his suit is done

Vendors:

Photography: Booked
Venue: Booked
Florist: Booked
DJ: Booked
Officiant: Booked
Tablesettings: Booked
Cake & Dessert: Booked
Catering: Booked
Hair: Booked (doing our own makeup)
Late Night Snack: Just about to book
Day of Coordinator: Booked

Other Things:

Save the Dates & Invites: Sent and waiting on RSVPs
All decor is purchased/rented
Liquor Permit & Liability Insurance is done
All signage and other paper related things are set up. (table numbers, placecards..etc..)
Been working on vows, speeches, timelines all that
We have our rehearsal booked
Wedding Party Gifts working progress
Bachelor/Bachelorette being planning

I am sure there are a few other things that I have done that I forgot to mention, my brain is all over the place now! So if you don't see something mentioned above then please comment and let me know! Maybe i have it done bur forgot or maybe I just forgot about it.

Thank you!!

    Wedding bands are done and we will get our license as soon as we are back in Ontario.

    You're gonna want to get your marriage license before the day of the wedding. I believe they are valid for 90 days? Check with your officiant.

    Also, I don't see wedding bands on that list.

    Getting facials now is a good idea! I want to start getting them but I'm honestly a little scared of the results. Something else to remember is to get a "getting ready" robe! My mom brought this one up to me the other day and I was going to completely overlook it!

    Do you have your marriage licence/wedding rings yet?

    It looks like you've got everything! I think that feeling of missing something is fairly common! Your brain just isn't used to not having all these thoughts and ideas running around it all day!

    I got a document from "Perfect Planners" online! They had a download for "My wedding is in 2 weeks, what am I forgetting!" and it's honestly amazing!!

    I'm just under 2 months out now but reviewing it has helped me A LOT!

    Also your lists seem great! Looks like you're more than well off! Also if you've feeling any worry I would ask your coordinator if they have any checklists that they can send you as a reference point!

    Don't forget a hair cut if you are in need, or just a quick trim to freshen up!

    Hopefully getting my wedding undergarments this weekend both comfy and night of 😉 lol
    Ill probably get a few facials the month before the wedding but the week leading up I'll just do my regular facial routine to avoid any breakouts from the facials. My stepmom got me a bag I believe..I'll have to double check lol
    Yes there are so many small things that can easily be overlooked which is why I love that I can ask all of you!
    Thank you!!

    Have you thought about what beauty treatments you'll do leading up to the wedding? The beauty plan for the night before? Your wedding undergarments? Your day-of bag?

    These are all the small things I'd think might be overlooked (and I'm sure there's so much more!).

    Seating chart and all paper like things and signs are being done by my bridesmaid. We have lists of what we want for the DJ and photographer. Favours are done, posted a pic as a reply to Tori. Honeymoon is next year so nothing to worry about there.
    There are so many little things lol it's insane and that's why I feel like I'm forgetting things!!
    Thank you!!

    Seating chart, favours, escort cards (if having them), checks for vendors, programs (if having them), list of photos you want the photographer to get, song requests for the dj, honeymoon details, emergency kit for day of. there are so many things to do! Hopefully you have everything, and if there is anything you are forgetting you will remember shortly enough.

    Haven't decided on gifts for parents yet..so many cute ideas it's hard to pick!
    I don't think we'll have our guests sign in..I didn't think that was a thing people did lol
    All the decoration stuff will be sorted out the week of the wedding when we are in town.

    Thank you!!!
