So on and off today I've been thinking about my checklist today and what I need to pay for and what I can get free/cheap. I've for a 'basic' checklist and split it into 3 categories.
Just to sort things out in my head for now, later on I'll sort them into what things need sorting first and what can be left until later.
Licence to Wed (As Adam and I like to call it)
Invites & People to invite
Programmes on the day
Who will talk/do scriptures/ which hymns to sing
Chief Bridesmaids/Maid of Honour
DRESS for moi
Dresses for bridesmaids
Flowers (bride & 'maids)
Shoes for all
Whose giving me away
Speeches on my side of things
Presents for Bridesmaids :)
Thank you cards
Speeches on his side
Flowers in the guys suits (which will come from flowers in Bride's bouquet
Is that really it on the guys side? No wonder people say it is all about the girl! I am currently thinking about colour themes and flowers, Adam's first thought for colours were black and white; need I say why... if I think about some things at once then it'll slowly cross stuff off the list. We kinda have a date but it's not definite and it's not set in stone we just need to talk to a couple of people about it. Then it'll be heads on organisation. I don't think Adam believed how much planning a wedding takes until my boss/friend Carolyn said it took 2 years!! To plan hers! haha.
I don't know about all you married women out there, but when you first got engaged did you go through episodes of like shocked amazement? Like 'WOW I can't believe I am getting married!" unless it's just me? But I seriously hope not...
If you're hoping for brides dresses on this blog then look and listen no further. I've decided not to blog about any dresses at all because that way Adam won't be sneak peeking at my ideas for the dress :D
