Countdown to the Wedding: July Goals

Checking in with my June Goals and sharing plans for July!

June Goals:
  • Schedule venue walkthrough with the planner and the florist
  • Attend marriage preparation session with our pastor
  • Plan farewell brunch for Saturday after the wedding
  • Take invitations to calligrapher for envelope addresses 
  • Mail invitations
  • Order the cake(s)
  • Choose AR's tux 
  • Schedule dress fittings with alterations
  • Finalize reservations for our mini-moon 
  • Finalize hair & make-up and schedule trial run 
  • Have an amazing time in Miami with my girls! 
  • Pick out my wedding shoes to take with me to alterations 
  • Send out checks for 60-days before wedding payments 
  • Check with hotel on reservations and remind guests to book their rooms!
  • Pick out wedding bands for AR and I! 
  • Plan signage with the calligrapher and planner 
  • Continue working out 6-days a week and eat healthy. Limit sweets to weekends only.

Okay, I was feeling super unprepared until I looked at this list. We are on our way!! This month was so busy with decisions and it was high-stress. I honestly don't know how AR puts up with me sometimes! 

For July:
  • Complete walk-thru with planner, caterer, florist, venue coordinator, and decorator. Done! This was so much fun! 
  • Finalize menu - we want to change one item
  • Order Rehearsal dinner dress
  • Attend dress fittings
  • Finalize morning-after brunch
  • Call people who have not RSVP'd
  • Make welcome bags for the hotel rooms
  • Order bridesmaid/groomsmen gifts
  • Order jewelry for bridesmaids
  • Pin hair ideas
  • Schedule hair and make-up trial run
  • Confirm cake design
  • Finish weekend time-line with the planner
  • Make nail/tan appointments
  • De-stress :)
  • Continue healthy eating and workouts: no more sweets or white carbs, with plans to cut dairy three weeks out (cutting dairy always brightens my skin!)
  • Planning call with photographer to go over must-have shots and our vision for our big day
  • Select songs for ceremony and reception
  • Start seating chart

Other Months:

And that is it for now! What is one thing you forgot to do until right before your wedding?



  1. So exciting- you are getting so close! What are you doing for your mini-moon/honeymoon? I love the idea of a farewell brunch too, mimosas necessary ;)

  2. Dont you hate it when people dont RSVP?? If everyone did, then you wouldnt have to call them haha! Good luck on these goals, lady!
