Wedding Wednesday - 3 Months To Go!

Monday marked 3 months until the wedding!

I honestly can not believe that we only have 3 more months!!! Where have the past 9 gone??? I am so excited it's so close, but I feel like I still have so much more to do. 

Here's my To Do list for the next month: 

~Buy our wedding bands. Mine is easy because it's matching set (I'm just trying to convince John I NEED 2 of them! ha). John tried bands on the last time we were at the mall and he found what he likes so now we just need to order.

~John HAS to get his suit finalized. He's ordered 2 different suits from Brooks Brothers and neither of them fit right and just got 2 more in the mail last week from Jos A Bank and they just weren't the right color tan. So, we keep looking...

~Send Thank You Notes for gifts we've already received. We've I've been really good at keeping up with this so far, but with our shower this weekend, I need to make sure to send those out soon because I know it will get hectic!

~Finish up the Bridesmaids gifts. This weekend is going to be the last time that all 3 of my bridesmaids and me are going to be together before we all arrive in Mexico. So, I decided to go ahead and give them their gifts this weekend at the shower. I can't take it all to Mexico with me so this was the only option so I can give it to them all at the same time. Everything is bought, just need to organize it and write out some special cards for them. I also need to take pictures of everything so I can share it on the blog. I got alot of cute stuff from Etsy and would love to share the shops!

~Get pictures printed and put in picture frames for all the tables. We're putting an engagement picture on every table at the reception. I have the frames from Hobby Lobby and I have some of our engagement pictures printed. I just need to put them in the frames and see how many more pictures I need to order. I LOVE the frames we got from Hobby Lobby. Can't wait to share them!

~Decide on a guest book. I'm not sure why this has been so hard for me. I want something that we can keep and that won't just go in a box in the closet. Right now I'm leaning towards a map print of Cancun and having people sign that and then framing it for our house. The Etsy shop who did our Save The Dates does these and they're super cute. I'm just worried about it blowing away in the wind since our reception is outside. 

~Finish buying stuff for our Welcome Bags. We're giving all of our guests welcome bags and have lots of surprise goodies in them! Most everything is ordered, but I have 1 more big purchase to make for them and a few other smaller things to get. I hope RSVP's start coming in soon so I know exactly how many to buy.

~Order table linens and chair sashes. This is one thing that the hotel over charges on majorly. White linens are included, but I want some color so we are ordering table overlays and chair sashes for the ceremony and reception chairs at a discount place and bringing them with us. And this is another thing that I will need RSVP's for before I order. 

There are so many more little things, but these are the biggest items I need to check off the list! 

2 big things we accomplished last week - 1) All the invitations went out!! I already got phone calls and texts about how cute they are and I'll be sharing those with y'all soon once I know everyone has received them!

2) We finally found and agreed on ties for the groomsmen!! We went to Macy's last Friday night and happened to stop and look and picked these up on the whim hoping they would match the bridesmaid dresses. We got them home and compared them with my shoes (which match the bridesmaids dresses exactly) and they are a almost a perfect match!! I really don't think we'll be able to find anything closer. This has been a huge headache for me so I'm so glad we finally have one more thing finalized.

We are so close!!

You're getting so close! :) I love the ties you found for the groomsmen!

For our guestbook I made an album on shutterfly with all of our engagement pictures in it, and I made the pages white so they could sign on the pages around the pictures. Now it sits on our coffee table and I love looking at it!
It will be here before you know it :)
