the never ending checklist

i still can’t believe how much there is to do before the wedding. we went to chattanooga sunday with joe’s parents to scout out hotels and restaurants for the rehearsal dinner. we decided on the country inn and suites to block off rooms (although if people want to stay elsewhere they have that option), and i think we’re probably going to go with carrabas for the rehearsal dinner. rachel had hers there as well, but i don’t think it matters if we do ours at the same restaurant. the food is good, and italian is a good choice for both the meat-eaters and my vegetarian family.

i’m a little overwhelmed at what i still have to finish. it’s hard to work it in around my job. in the next two months i have to:

  • finish the newspaper we’re making as a favor
  • order three more bridesmaid’s gifts and my flower girl’s gift
  • find a bra to wear with my dress
  • schedule and go to my dress alteration appointment
  • order the yarmulkes
  • finish writing up the program and place the order at the printer’s
  • pick out songs for the reception
  • meet with the people at the chapel to discuss:
    painting the columns and wood on the outside of the courthouse
    reception menu
    ordering the cake
    setting up for the wedding
  • meet with the photographer
  • meet with the dj
  • five premarital counseling sessions
  • schedule my hairdresser
  • get the white carpet
  • get bubbles for the guests to blow as we leave
  • pack for the honeymoon
  • schedule waxing, manicure and pedicure

    i don’t even know if i have everything down. that’s all i can think of right now. i’m sure there’s more. there always is. i’m just counting down now until all this is over! 🙂
