It’s amazing how far we are when it comes to getting things around and done for our wedding. With it being just shy a few days before the 2 month mark, how far along are you with getting the things you need for your wedding and/or if you completed everything and can now just relax until the wedding celebration festivities? Are you nervous, stressed, anxious or will that come later on the day of?


I have a slight bit more to go, completed my vendors within 4 months and need to get all the exciting and decorative things to make my wedding top notch. I have wedding festivities this month and the next. It’s crazy to think our wedding is just around the corner. 😁

    My wedding is at the end of April and we just sent out our invitations today! Starting to get pretty excited. I’m going to try on my next after alterations next week, then my hair and makeup trials are the week after that. I think I’ll be even more excited then. Not much is left other than details like signage and some random things I’ll be ordering from Etsy soon. Excited that after postponing a year it’s finally happening!

    I wish I was as far king as you! In my defense, I’ve only been at the planning thing since 12/13/21, which is when I got engaged and then found out, due to a military schedule, we were best to try to do our wedding in Spring. 😅 Still have a lot in the works


    Got the venue(s) for ceremony and reception.Most good selections madeWebsite almost doneRegistry doneDress and suit rentals done.Have invites picked out but not ordered yet.Flowers and decor in progress.Hair and make-up vendors still in progress.And so much more in-progress, lol - but as overwhelming as it seems at times I still think we are in a good place. But April is right around the corner! Ours is 4/24!This might be a dumb question, but does anyone know how you are supposed to sign your marriage license if changing your name? 😅 I feel like I’ve googled ad nauseam and there seems to be a 50/50 split on what you do so now I don’t know. Guess we could wait to ask when we apply for it, but if anyone already has insight on this, I would love to know!

    Your officiant helps you out with marriage license. You would need to file for a marriage license within a week or 2 before your wedding. Could be different by state

    So we did look up what we could find for applying and getting the marriage license (when&where&how early) it’s the name I sign with I am struggling with. If I am changing my name do I sign with my married name or do I sign with my maiden name is the question I’m trying to answer. We can’t get the license until end of March (earliest) so I may just wait to ask the clerk. 😅 I’ve asked others and at least 2 ppl I know signed with their maiden name and everyone else signed with their married name. Why is this not a straight answer 😅😅

    Sign with maiden name. You fill out your marriage license with name given on your birth certificate, has to match exactly.
