It’s Wedding Wednesday and it’s time to share our 3 month update. Well, we’re technically at 2 months and 19 days, but who’s counting? Last month I shared my 4 month update and we’ve gotten a few more things accomplished since then.
Wedding Wednesday: 3 Month Update
Since my last update, we’ve picked out the groom and groomsmen looks, reserved hotel blocks, and picked up my wedding dress from the bridal salon. This weekend we will be picking out our cake and deciding on the smaller decorations like upgraded linens, some cute signs to direct our guests, the seating chart design and figuring out our wedding favors.
To do list:
Schedule my hair and makeup trial // I mentioned this last month, but still haven’t gotten around to it. I think I’m going to schedule my trial for the beginning of October so I still have time to figure out a new style if I end up hating my original idea. I plan on scheduling that appointment this week.
Schedule our meeting with the wedding coordinator and the officiate // I plan on scheduling the appointment with the officiate sometime this week for sometime in September or October but I am waiting for the wedding coordinator to reach out to us to schedule a time to meet about the day of plans.
Schedule bridal portraits // I need to figure out a day to do these because I am still really unsure if I should do it the day of my trials or not.
Send out formal invites // I should be receiving my formal invites this weekend when I go to my appointment, but I’m not 100% sure. If so, these will be sent out at the beginning of September to give people ample time to RSVP and book their hotels.
Finalize the wedding playlist // We’re making progress on this but I’m still unsure on some of the songs for the playlist. Any suggestions – please let me know.
Figure out my something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue // Like I mentioned in my last wedding post, I have already decided on my something new, something borrowed and something blue, just trying to finalize the something old.
Order small decorations from Etsy // I want to order a Mr. and Mrs. sign for our table at the wedding plus a cute cake topper. I also plan to order a guest book from Etsy as well.
Order my bridesmaids’ gifts // I have a few ideas in mind on what to get my girls but I haven’t officially decided yet. Can’t wait to figure out what to get my girls!
Figure out how to do my bridesmaids’ hair // Since my hair is most likely going to be half up and half down, I can’t figure out how I want to do my bridesmaids hair. I was thinking cute updos for them but I keep going back and forth between an updo and down and curly. What do y’all think?
Order gift for the groom // My fiance’ cannot seem to tell me what he wants for his wedding gift so it’s leaving me in limbo.
Get my dress altered // Surprisingly, my dress fit perfectly so the only alterations I need is to get pads inserted into the bust of my dress and get the bustle done so that I don’t have to worry about the train of my dress dragging around while I’m trying to get my dance on.
Pick out shoes for dress // I have a few shoe options in mind but I need to narrow it down between 2-3 pairs and see which ones I like best.
Get dress for rehearsal dinner // This one isn’t super important, but I have yet to find my dress for the rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal dinner is going to be fairly casual but I still want a killer dress to wear.
These are just the final things we need to get accomplished before we say I do. I’m so ready to start my life with my future hubby. I hope you enjoyed this Wedding Wednesday update! Please feel free to give me any suggestions for the big day down in the comments.
