Taking Stock

It's easy to get overwhelmed when you're planning a wedding (or any large event for that matter). Sometimes you just need to take a step back and review what's already checked off your list and what still needs to be done. So, here are my lists!
  • Ceremony & reception venues booked
  • Caterer booked
  • Decoration rentals booked
  • Bartenders booked
  • Photographers booked
  • Flowers ordered
  • Dress and groom's suit purchased
  • Officiant booked
  • Parents gifts purchased
  • Hotel booked
  • Groom's wedding band ordered
  • Registered for gifts
  • Directional sign made
  • Chose photo locations
To do:
  • Finish centerpieces (wash jars, buy bird seed, make candle holders)
  • Invitations (finish stamping them, buy or make envelopes, mail them!)
  • Order bridesmaid gifts
  • Decide on groomsmen gifts
  • Dress and suit alterations
  • Decide on groomsmens attire
  • Create seating chart 
  • Favours
  • Book dog kennel/adventure camp
  • Book music equipment rentals
  • Make playlists
  • Make photobooth backdrop
  • Stock up on supplies for photobooth
  • Make sign and paper for photobooth/guestbook
  • Buy shoes and underwear for wedding day
  • Hair and makeup
  • Order a wedding band for me
  • Marriage license and meet with officiant
  • Liquor license
  • Write ceremony script
  • Make a floor plan/seating plan
  • Make wedding photo list for photographers
On second thought, this process is a little daunting. I definitely thought there was more on the done list than the to-do list. Oh well, that's why it's good to take stock of where you're at in the planning and process. Now I can work on crossing things off my list!
