September brides, we're a month-ish away from our big days! What things do you still have to get done this month?


-We've got RSVP deadline coming up, so then tracking down missing responses

-Final dress fitting

-Final meeting with our venue to finalize menu, give head count, make final payment, logistics, etc

-Finalize any requests for ceremony musicians and DJ

- Marriage license meeting


Plus just little decor and gift items.


We both also have our bachelor and bachelorette trips coming up in August (both of us are going to Ocean City MD two weeks apart).

    It's insane to think this time one month from today I'll be waking up on my wedding morning!

    I have all my decor and necessities for wedding day in boxes all organized waiting to be dropped off at the venue 8/29, but I keep going through them like a lunatic to make sure I'm not missing anything which I'm not but I will still go through them 100 more times.

    All our bridal party gifts are done and backed away for the rehearsal dinner.

    We got our marriage license yesterday, which I have to drop off to our officiant at some point before the wedding.

    We have our final meeting with our DJ and officiant 8/17 via Zoom

    Final Fitting 8/19

    The guys suits should all be delivered 8/19 and they will all come to my house that weekend to try them on so I can make sure they all fit properly and we can get new pieces if they don't.

    Our RSVP deadline is today, but I'm giving it till the end of the week to chase people down since my venue is not requiring a physical seating chart just an excel file of where everyone is sitting its much easier to throw together.

    We have to finish our guest book which is Cornhole Boards we're making but we're planning on doing that next weekend. We just have to cut the hole in them and paint my stencil on them.

    My bachelorette is this weekend! which I'm so excited for!

    FH had his bachelor party this past weekend while I had my shower, and his Stag is 8/20.

    The only thing I REALLY need is to know how my FSIL who is one of my bridesmaids wants to be introduced at the reception, she just married FBIL in March and idk if she wants to be introduced with her maiden name or if she's changing her name and wants to be introduced with his last name. So I'm waiting for her to respond cause her husband told me to combine their last names and then was like "wait ask her about that" so I'm just waiting for her to respond to my text which she is horrible at doing lol

    I'm so worried that this month is going to fly by I'm going to run out of time but I WANT this month to fly by cause I just want it to be wedding day!

    We are meeting with our officiant today.

    RSVPs are due a week from tomorrow.

    We can "check in" for our honeymoon a week from Saturday.

    I can't believe all of these things that felt like they were so far off in the distance are finally here!!!!

    I’ve been fighting the urge to just pay off all my vendors at once…. And not take from my savings. But I just hate owing money and having to keep tabs. I’ve had several vendors reach out to confirm but I’m stumped when it comes to the DJ. All I know is the vibe I want lol I’m not good with choosing actual songs.

    We have exactly the same list of things to do and also getting the wedding favors for the guests. I don't know about you but I'm so overwhelmed by everything. Plus, my bridal shower is this weekend.

    Is anyone giving their bridal party their gifts at their shower or bachelorette party?

    Our venue had this new policy because of covid that they only allow the deposit (2k) and then the remainder is due at our final meeting (3 weeks out) and it has given me so much anxiety thinking about how much we owe and will have to pay at once. So definitely get that payment part!

    Oh my gosh I can't even fathom a vendor backing out. Good luck with the search for the new one.

    Love the mailbox idea though!!

    I haven't put together table boxes yet for venue and I honestly don't even want to despite the fact that I'm usually SO organized.

    I gave my hosts of the shower a small gift card and bottle of wine. Then my bach is this weekend and I put cute little goodie bags for all the girls (clear makeup bag, sunglasses, koozie, lip gloss and hair tie) with a note saying thanks for celebrating with me.

    My official bridesmaid gifts will be given out at the rehearsal dinner though.
