I was home in Pennsylvania a couple weeks ago and got to spend some much needed time with my mom mapping out the wedding planning.
I am less then a year away and needed to start putting together a solid list of what needs to get done by August 7th. We spent a good 2 hours talking about everything that we could possibility think of that needs to get done.
Now that I am back in Boston, every time one of us thinks of something else we simply call each other up and add it to the list. For those of you who are planning a wedding in another city, state or country than your mother, I find that this is a great way to involve each other during this special time.
Here is a shot of our Wedding List. It is currently about 5 pages long and keeps growing. It will feel great when I get to the time where I can start crossing things off. (Yes, I am that person who makes lists of things that I’ve already done just so I can cross it off!)
This list is also a big reminder that time is going to fly and things need to start happening. Ger and I got engaged back in December and have had a long engagement. Honestly, now that time is shortening, it’s hard for me to get started on all the projects!
For all of those brides out there, did your “list” have a dual meaning to you?
