Oh. My. Gosh. Can you believe we made it to planning 3 months before your wedding!!! And I know I constantly preach being proactive for this whole process, but the closer you get the more you definitely have to be!!! So let’s get on it!
Just in case you missed last weeks post, here ya go!
Finalize Menu and Flowers-Now is the time to start making a whole lot of final decisions. Like your tasty food and florals. Reach out to your cater and florist to discuss want you have decided and check this bad boy off your list!
Order Favors-Favors are small gifts for your guest to be able to take from your wedding to remember your special day! From small treats to coasters the possibilities are endless. Now I am all about thinking outside the box when it comes to… well everything! So this task is obviously no different. And take this opportunity to incorporate your wedding theme, location and individuality! Like a jar of honey from a local bee keeper with a sweet love note for your guests, or you’re having a beech wedding, mini messages in a bottle, even coffee beans from the same coffee shop you shared your first date!
Plan Toasts and Readings– Weather you choose to have your loved ones read during your ceremony or just have them speak during the reception, this is a good time to let them know you would love to have them be a part of your day in this extra way. And giving them the heads up now gives them some time to plan and practice what they will say. Because we all love funny stories about the bride and groom along with sweet words of congratulations and love! But keep in mind that the people you choose, will have a microphone, and will be speaking to your entire families. So be veryyyy careful when choosing who will speak on your big day. Because no one wants to see a toast go from “Awwwe” to “Oh my goodness did he just say that?!?”. So someone who will take the task seriously is pretty important!
Week 9 is in the bag!!! Thanks for reading and if you are ready for more here is the link to week 10!
