7 Weeks Out: Checklist Update

Even though it’s totally wigging me out that my wedding is technically *next month*, it’s really still 7 weeks away. That being said, with Christmas rapidly approaching, plus me taking another trip to Macon next week to see my sissy-poo and beautiful nieces, time is flyingggggg. So to stay mildly sane organized, let’s go ahead and pay that ever-growing wedding checklist a visit, shall we?

I feel like now is the time to start crowd-sourcing what I might be forgetting. You know, so I don’t end up flipping out 3 days beforehand because I forgot to put X, Y, and Z on the list. Ughhhh, maybe updating this list was actually not a very good idea, I’m getting stressed out. Okay, off to do some deep-breathing and stress-baking.

    Meghann at Meals and Miles has a reallllly helpful wedding alcohol post on her blog! For my wedding we just did beer and wine, with two pre-mixed cocktails in carafes. If you’re doing a full bar things get a bit trickier, but that post is very helpful.

  2. Claresays:

    If you can buy your alcohol at Costco, they will let you return anything that’s not opened.

    • Maggiesays:

      This is exactly why we’re getting the wine from Costco, at least. The beer is a little tricker, since you have to buy it by the case, not the bottle, but the unopened cases can be returned!
