Planning a Crazy Cool Wedding without going Crazy: Step 8

Wedding Plan Step 8: Final Few Steps

Look at all your lists and schedules. Make a Leftovers List of things that haven't been done yet so you can see it in a to-do style that isn't clouded over with other details that have been taken care of and shouldn't visually be in the way. Even better: put a timeline to it. (We did just that, posted below.) Hunt down the RSVPs that haven't been sent yet, say, a week after the due date. Nails? Day before. Solidifying DJ's music that you definitely want or don't want played? A month or so, but use your personal preference. Sending out rehearsal dinner info to the bridal party? Make it early enough so they know how early they have to fly or drive in.
