Dear Liz:

My wedding is next Saturday, and my brain's freezing. Everything is taken care of, but I'm really afraid that it's not taken care of, too! Is there a list of things I need to definitely do this week?


Eight Days Out

Dear Out,

#1: One Word: CONFIRM. Call all of your vendors, and confirm: their arrival time, departure time, what they need (space, power, tables) to do their jobs, if there is a balance due, and both their best number for the day and yours. In other words, make sure you're not calling their office number when they're obviously not going to be in the office, and make sure they're not calling your home number when you're obviously not at home. Call all your vendors, every single one, including your venue.

#2: Guest stuff. Escort cards? Do them and put them in alphabetical order, by last name. My suggestion, in the interest of less chaos, is to ask someone to monitor the table during the last 15 minutes of cocktail hour. It's easiest if the person monitoring the table is the person who puts the cards out. Give them a list of everyone that lists what table everyone is at, again, but last name.
