#641: stuff i'm delegating.

what i've chosen to delegate isn't necessarily what you will delegate. but i'll share anyways.

because you ask. and i answer. (about 10% of the time. sorry.)

1) rehearsal lunch picnic: cousin and her friend will be doing the set up at the park, pick up of the food, keeping the drinks ice cold, etc.

2) picking up my dress: mom.

3) lugging of the centerpieces to the venue: thanks dad.

4) lugging of the placecards (and the stand and the tree that decorates it) to the venue: bridesmaid.

5) slideshow: sister.

6) setting up of the sand bottles for the sand ceremony on day of: bridesmaid.

7) guestbook table and polaroid picture taking and program passing outting on day of: 4 cousins.

8) putting boutonnieres on the gents on day of: bridesmaid.

9) checking the set up of the centerpieces on day of: bridesmaid.

10) keeping me focused on happiness: to-be-husband.

plus, the DJ and the site coordinator have the ceremony and reception schedules broken down to the minute along with the seating arrangements and music selections. not going to think about it anymore. if it happens the way we planned, great. if not, then that's the way it goes, yo.

so happy for you that you are entering the final weeks/days. and hope you will continue blogging. just look at east side bride.

You are so well prepared, I know your day is going to be FABULOUS - even if it doesn't go according to plan (which can often be a blessing in disguise!).
