Pushing Deadlines

OK, it's November, time to revisit "Things that really must be done before the end of October"

Book a venue
Open a joint bank account
Obtain money from contributor(s?)
Figure out my own money contribution situation
Finalize initial guest list
Create and send out STDs
Obtain contact info for everyone who will receive a STD
Finalize wedding theme
Figure out my dress situation
Finalize wedding party and officiant
Choose official date, haha

Ughhh.  In my defense, venue and date would have been done by the end of October if the coordinator wasn't on vacation, I should be able to finish most of the rest of this by the end of the weekend.

How screwed am I?


  1. Shoot. How can I help? I wish I were there to do something for you guys!

  2. Awww! You're fine! Seriously - once one thing falls into place they all tend to do the same. Especially since you haven't picked out an official date yet. Good luck with everything!

  3. At first, I thought the title of this post was "Pushing Daisies" and I got really excited. Anyway, the biggest things on here go together - you can't get contacts until you have a guest list, and you can't send STDs until you have contacts. Crack down on the guest list and as soon as you finalize things with your coordinator you can get crackin' on save the dates. I'd love to help with design concepts.

  4. @Laura: That was totally what I was thinking of, hehe. I'm actually done with the planning for the STDs. We're doing a video, and I have at least got the script done. I'd love your help, but I kind of want this one to be a surprise for as many guests as possible.
