Just in case, warning you all now, that things might go a little wonky over the next 72 hours. I’m changing hosts and it takes some time to transfer the domain info and all that jazz from one host to another.
But wow…one month! @_@ I cannot believe it. Two and a half years of planning and it’s all coming down to this…I feel like I just wrote a countdown post…but I guess that’s just proving how much faster the time flies by when you really need it. XD
One Month To Go
Confirm floral order and arrange for delivery times. – √
Should be done. We don’t have a lot of floral and have already worked most things out with the florist. We are just waiting on one final thing for them to confirm and we’re good to go!
Meet with ushers and assign duties for the ceremony and reception. – √
We’ve had our groomsmen double duty as ushers and they know what their job is at this point.
Discuss the details of your wedding ceremony with your officiant. – √
One reason we took a trip last weekend. It was actually the main reason we were making the trip and we are feeling so set with the ceremony. I cannot wait for our guests to be a part of it!
Determine the placement or distribution of programs at the ceremony venue. – √
Distributed by ushers when they seat guests. Who doesn’t want to see the awesome programs I made?
Arrange for preparation, storage and break areas for musicians/DJ at the reception venue. – √
Totally and completely up to Disney. So in other words, done!
Determine seating arrangements for guests. – √
I think people make a bigger fuss over this than it really has. We really didn’t struggle with it at all and got it done in about an hour.
Schedule an appointment for a manicure and/or pedicure the day before your wedding. – √
We did. A couples massage too. We’re excited for all of this.
Finalize details with wedding photographer and videographer, determining arrival times at each nuptial venue. – √
Working on it, although we pretty much have it set in stone.
Finalize honeymoon plans/itinerary and confirm all travel and hotel reservations. – X
Again, not planning for the honeymoon yet.
Arrange for transportation to and from the airport. – √
This won’t be for us, but for some family members and wedding party members. My yiayia is working on her flight last time I spoke with her.
Make all necessary arrangements for care of pet(s), plants and mail while you’re away on honeymoon. – √
With two cats (now three!), this was a thing to be taken care of well in advance. Luckily, I’m no green thumb so no plants to worry about and have made arrangements with the post office.
Post announcement and photo on your wedding website. – √
I mean…I think? I’m not exactly sure what this means.
Arrange for table card setup at reception venue. – √
Disney’s doing this.
Schedule pickup/return of groom’s formalwear. – √
Already have it worked out thanks to his wonderful parents.
Give the final headcount to the caterer and review details. – √
This was due this week, so of course it has been taken care of.
Arrange for delivery and placement of wedding flowers, candles and other decorations on the day of the ceremony. – √
Mostly Disney, but we brought in our own centerpieces so we have some wonderful aunts and cousins assisting us.
Contact anyone who has not responded to his or her wedding invitation. – √
Needed our final count so we had to track this down by the end of January.
Apply for a marriage license. Check with the local bureau in the town where you’ll wed. – √
Been done and taken care of.
Bride: Have final gown fitting. Bring your maid of honor along to learn how to bustle your dress. Have the dress pressed and bring it home. – √
Not yet, but planned to. Going to pick it up a week from now.
Call all bridesmaids. Make sure they have their gowns ready for the wedding. – √ & X
Handed one dress off to a bridesmaid this past weekend, although now everyone needs to get their dresses altered if needed.
Make last-minute adjustments with vendors. – √
In the process of doing so.
Create a wedding program to hand out to guests. – √
It’s created, but we’re just finalizing it.
Order and plan in-room welcome baskets for out-of-town guests. – √
Of course. Now our biggest project is tracking people down to ask what their room reservations are so that we can ensure the welcome bags end up in their hands.
