April To-Dos

All along, it’s been my goal to get everything planned out and set by early June, so I can turn everything over to my DOC, and spend the last couple of weeks before the wedding just being a bride. Which means a very busy April and May!

So far this month, I’ve been a shopping fiend — I’ve ordered the paper for the invites (which arrived late last week!), the custom stamp for the invites, our ring bowl, the tulle (yes, I gave in and got it), the stamps for the response cards, the calligraphy pen for the envelopes (I’m going Jenn’s DIY calligraphy route, because I’m a perfectionist too!), sealing wax and a seal for the favors/toss packets, and supplies for centerpiece and bouquet test runs. I want to get most of the shopping done this month, so that I don’t have to worry about anything taking too long to get here. So, my tasks for the rest of April:

  • Finish our wedding website
  • Buy my veil. I was going to make it, but then I found Something Bold, and realized I could buy it for almost as cheap, and then add my own fascinator. So that’s what I’m doing — the less I have to do personally, the happier everyone around me will be!
  • Letterpress the invites!! The paper is in, the plate is on the way, and I get to go have more letterpress fun on Thursday!!
  • Assemble and mail the invites. When I bought the stamps the other day, I spoke with a lovely woman at our local post office who said that she would personally hand-cancel our invites when I bring them in.
  • Do the centerpiece and bouquet test runs
  • Buy any additional centerpiece supplies
  • Make lots of paper flowers — luckily, my sister is going to help with this task
  • Help my mom and T’s mom find dresses for the wedding
  • Find and order my shoes
  • Order sheet music for the ceremony and reception musicians
  • Get on T to finish the honeymoon reservations!
  • Buy our wedding rings! Mine will need to be custom made to fit my engagement ring, so we definitely need to get on it!
  • Anything else I have time for to get ahead on May’s tasks!

April is going to be a busy month, but May will be even busier! I love, love, love being busy, though — it makes the time fly by, and this is the fun part!!
