If you have a day of schedule, please share it with me. I am going to work with my DoC on this but I want to have a sense of what I want to be sure is there and how long things will take. Thanks ladies.

    I have not made one yet, but I have a 'day of' planner so I will let her handle the logistics....I will probably only say something if there is something major I want/need to do that day...

    Well you saw mine in my post. I made a few changes but not many. Ty is even dropping my items off the day before so that helped me in the set up area but still working on the storage part.

    These are very helpful. I am trying to decide if I am going to get my hair done that day or the day before. Doing my hair is a MAJOR production so I am trying to figure it everything else that I should be talking to my DoC about as we work through this schedule.

    Hehhehehe... and sleep standing up! Well, you would know what works best for you.

    Good luck!

    (and consider the first touch photos if you are not going to do first look. The day is about the 2 of you, try to get as many photos in as you can to remember the day.

    LOL! I know right!??! I don't know what I was thinking when we said a 4P wedding. Why we didnt go with 6P I don't know. But yes, we are definitely doing lots of pictures before hand.

    We are getting married downtown. The groomsmen will start on one end of the square with FH and BM with me. Then the wedding parties will switch and me and FH will stay put to take pics with the opposite group. Still not seeing each other. That way we will also get some individual pictures done too. Hope it's not too hot or else this plan will go to hell in a hand basket.
