Wedding Wednesday - 1 Month!

1 month from yesterday we're leaving for Mexico.

1 month from this Saturday, I'll be walking down the aisle.

33 days y'all. 

HOLY COW!!!

I am pretty much DONE!





I have a small to-do list so I'll share that with y'all...


1. Finish up groomsmen and parents gifts - These are all ordered, we just need to do final touches and wrapping.

2. Pack - I've already started! All my swimsuits, cover ups and summer dresses are in the suitcase!

3. Organize everything we're taking with us, decoration wise - We can only have $300 per person to take in to Mexico so I've started a spreadsheet with how much everything was. It's helping me decide what we need to pack with us and what we need to hand off to parents and the wedding party to get it there without having to pay taxes going through customs.

4. Marriage License - We're planning on doing this the day before Thanksgiving since I'm off work

5. Finalize ceremony/reception music - I am having the damnedest time picking music for the ceremony and introductions at the reception. If I could see how long the "aisle" is and where we will be starting from, it would help, but like everything else, this is one of the unknowns that goes along with a destination wedding.

6. Email all the guests with final last minute itinerary and changes - Our resort has a strict dress code in the restaurants so I want to email everyone to make sure they bring appropriate clothes. We also decided to use a different type of videography service where people can video using their iphones so I want to ask everyone to download the app so we can have as many videos as possible. (I'll share more about that in a later post!). And of course send a last thank you to everyone for make the trip to Mexico before we get there.

7. Celebrate our bachelor/bachelorette parties - Both of them are this weekend! John is going to New Orleans with his 3 closest friends and I will be celebrating here in Houston!

8. Stop and enjoy this last month of being engaged and a Bride - ahh, this year has flown by. I've enjoyed being engaged so much and planning this wedding so I want to make sure I take time to stop and enjoy this last month. Of course I'm going to love being Mrs. Ryan and married to my best friend, but there is just something about being the Bride that is special :)


Of course there are a few other things here and there to finalize, but these are the big things on our list! I seriously can't believe we're so close. So ready to be in Mexico on the beach with my new husband and all of our family and friends!
