So we're a little more than eight weeks out, and the panic is starting to set in.

DIY projects
  • Banners. Completely done. I think that I ended up with 53 yards of the stuff.
  • Origami flowers. Will be done with folding and assembling the individual flowers tonight. Will have to assemble and put the final touches on this weekend.
  • Centerpieces.  Have all of the glass bowls and vases.  Am about halfway through making the crystal and feather sprays (partially based off this tutorial).  Have 50 peacock feathers for center piece arrangements too.
  • Table centers. Need to cut saris, but have the material. Slightly terrified of cutting it.  Need to buy the table cloths.
  • Super secret lighting project that I'll do a tutorial on as I make it.  Have the first piece back from fabricator. Need to double check measurements and order the rest of the pieces.
  • Tissue paper pompoms.  Did a test run yesterday. Will not take long. Do not have any of the material, but easy to get.
  • Herbs.  Bought 60 galvanized pots at IKEA. 20 something rosemary plants have been started. Will start seeds this weekend for the rest of the herbs.
  • Wedding arch. There are two perfectly placed tree limbs to hang fabric from to make the arch. Need to take measurements to ensure we get enough fabric.


I'm more or less where I want to be right now when it comes to DIY.  I've also decided to make a few brooch flowers to incorporate with real flowers for the bouquet.  I can't really do more than make the individual brooch flowers now, though, because the real flowers will be picked from my mom's garden either day of or day before wedding.   I may have to do a dry run with my dad so he can do the bouquet.

Food and drink:
  • Caterer secured.
  • Have a sangria plan. Need to buy glass jars.
  • Need to test run lemonade idea.
  • Need to select wine.
  • Need to secure cupcake vendor, though have our eyes on someone.
  • Need to figure out bartender situation.


Attire:
  • Dress ordered back in late December. Should be here in mid-March-ish.
  • Boots secure.
  • Necklace secure.
  • My engagement and wedding rings purchased and resized. He needs to order his wedding ring.  It will probably be this one.
  • Lust after earrings until closer to wedding to determine if can be fit in budget.
  • Need to figure out underwear after I get the dress to ensure that I don't have strap issues.  Am almost certain that it'll be something long line from HerRoom, and probably this one.
  • He has pants. Similar to these, but in a darker color.
  • He has been fitted for and ordered his bespoke shirt.
  • He's in shoe dilemma.
  • I'm sure there's a hat issue that he's having that he hasn't told me about.
  • I am leaning towards this for the rehearsal, though I bought a corset from Corset Story.  I may be too chicken to wear it that night and may wear it after the wedding instead.

Lighting, music, power:

Graham is in charge. Will assess situation this weekend.

Ceremony:
  • Talked with officiant at length about what we want. She's working on the structure of the ceremony.
  • Need to order flower petals right before the wedding for kids to throw.
  • Have PA system and someone we trust will be handling music cues.
  • WRITE VOWS!!!


Photography:
  • Have initiated discussion
  • Need to meet at ranch to show what we want
  • Need to decide how flow of photos will go.


I think that's it except for a million other things that I've forgotten. And the invitations, which will be in another post.
