Here are some important tasks that you should take care of two months before your big day!
Mail wedding invitations. Check your guest list twice to be sure you have not forgotten anyone! And of course, be sure to purchase pretty stamps!
Schedule a tasting with your caterer and finalize menu plans. Be sure you LOVE everything that is being served. If not, ask about alternatives!
Arrange any wedding weekend activities you are planning for your guests. Don’t over-do it! Everyone needs some downtime as well.
Select ceremony music with musicians. Don’t be afraid to be a little bit creative; your ceremony should reflect your tastes and preferences. If there is a song that is part of your “love story”, request to have it included in the ceremony music!
Select reception music with your band or DJ. Be sure to specify any “must play” songs and “don’t play” songs.
Create a shot list of people and events for your photographer and videographer.
Have programs and menus printed.
Buy your guest book.
Confirm that your bridesmaids have their dresses, shoes, accessories, and have had any necessary alterations made.
Arrange for a pre-ceremony changing area for the wedding party.
Send wedding announcement to local papers. Some publications request more information than others, so be sure to investigate what is needed!
Update your registry to add items if desired.
Pay deposits to confirm honeymoon plans.
