Thursday Thirteen-Wedding Related

Hopefully the wedding will take place in November (3 1/2 months), so I need to be ready in case we can proceed.  I have so much to do!  Here are some of the things on my list:

1-Choose and order a dress - working on it.  I like this one, but the model is probably my daughter's age.  It IS a Mother-of-the-bride dress, though.

2-Bridal shower invitations - started them.  It will look similar to this (not in color).
3-Find affordable bridal alterations near me. (Thanks, Google.)
4-Make aisle decorations - haven't started.  Something like this, but with Baby's Breath and/or eucalyptus.
5-Make a towel cake decoration for the shower - haven't started.  Something like the one I made with diapers for our daughter's baby shower.
6-Make centerpieces for reception table - started them.
7-Make my daughter's headpiece - I've planned this and have materials. We're using the same trim for her belt and headpiece.
8-Figure out how to get my mom a dress as well as a ride to and from the wedding.  It's too far for her to drive.
9-Make an appointment to get my hair done the day of.
10-Help my daughter fill out some papers for the DJ.
11-Plan the candy "bar" and get treat bags - started on this.  Something like this but more colorful:
12-Find shoes to go with my dress when I choose it.
13-Make a backdrop and get light ring for photo booth.  Backdrop with lights similar to these:

I'm sure there's so much more, but it helps to write it down!  I would also love to hear your ideas! Wish me luck!

  1. wow, hopeful... so sad about the weddings and other big social events that covid has interrupted. At least these two have each other and while we plan the party, that's what it's really about. After the event. Life shared. LeeAnna

  2. Weddings are difficult and I hope the day is super special for you and your family.

  3. Fun, fun, fun, and a whole lot of work, but well worth it. That's a pretty dress, sleek, sophisticated, and elegant, but not snobby or snooty. Those are hard dresses to come by, I think. I like all your wedding and shower ideas. Wowza! You've got a lot of fun work to do. Cheers!
