4 Months!

Yup thats right! We are down to the 4 month mark already! I don't know where the time has gone! The last month or so has been consumed with the move and getting everything sorted out for that, that there has been no wedding progress. Not that there's a problem with that. I feel we are on a good path. The only thing that I wish I had finished was the invitations for the reception. But I will get my mum and sister to help assemble those, which will also make it more fun. What do we still have let to do? Well...

- Get a videographer. Hopefully this won't be too difficult
- Decide on favors and purchase them. Also favors for kiddies
- Talk to our florist about the flowers, centerpieces, boutonnieres, decor, 
- Get venue lighting sorted out
- Find people for hair and make-up
- Seating chart and name tags as it gets closer to the date
- Send out rest of wedding invitations. A lot will be hand delivered too.
- Wedding cake
- Get a garter
- Gifts for groomsmen
- Welcome baskets for our guests
- Transportation for OOT guests to wedding if they need it. 
- Decide on a guest book
- Get a marriage license
- Decide on TTD/Location shoot for the next day. 

Thats the gist of it. Once we get settled in I'll get back to work on this and try to get as much done as possible over the summer. Plus I need to get a tan! And look for a job! I anticipate a lot of interesting times ahead...

Wow! Time flies! I think you definitely have plenty of time to take care of all those things, as long as you keep making progress once you get settled from the move. My best advice is to not wait until the last minute to do the seating chart, name tags and OOT bags. I think so many people put those things off, thinking they’ll come together at the end, and then they end up scrambling! Just be sure to give yourself plenty of time, and you’ll be fine.

I know it seems like so much, but don't worry...you'll get it all done!! That's so rad that you are doing a TTD. I wish that I had done one.

For favors I will always suggest food. Those are always the favors I remember from weddings!

I'm right there with you on needing a tan also. I was just thinking that this morning while looking in the mirror.

Congrats on 4 months! That means I'm at a little under 5! So much to do, so little time, but we're both that much closer to being Mrs.'s! So exciting, enjoy it all :)

Little Miss Busy is right! Just keep up your motivation and don't forget to delegate :)

Best of luck with everything that is left. Your list is really short - you are super organised!

You can do it! I'm with Salt - food favors are always good (guests will start consuming right away too)!

Is there a local treat made around the area? Perhaps you can package that up easily.

Ooh honeymoon planning should be fun too!

Choosing the Honeymoon is the fun part :)

Congratulations! A belated but no less sincere and heartfelt 'Thank you!' for stopping by my Home renovation and design blog on my SITS Featured blog day.

Your list is long, but definitely doable!

Good luck, Chocolate Lover! You sound pretty relaxed! I was always so stressed by the length of my to-do list...but just take one thing at a time.

It will all work out and be beautiful!!!
