The State Of Chris Stump & Tina Han’s Wedding


Wedding plans have been frying my brain

Given my recent post on wedding guest list management and wedding proposals it may seem like my wedding is a ways off. In fact, it’s right around the corner on October 1st. I’ve just been pathetically slow at writing posts for this blog series. It’s not easy finding time to write when I’m juggling full-time work, full on wedding plans, my wedding invitation business, and Chicago summer socializing. Something has to give. Thank God fall is here!

Before I reveal more incredible insight on wedding planning I thought I’d give an update on where Tina & I are in the process. We think we have most of the bases covered. Here are the bases:

  • We reserved a ceremony location
  • We have someone to perform the ceremony
  • We have someone to photograph the whole day
  • We reserved a reception location
  • We have a DJ for dancing
  • We chose the dinner & cake
  • Tina planned the “tablescape”
  • Tina chose all the flowers
  • Tina took care of her bridesmaids dresses and gifts
  • I took care of my groomsmen suits and gifts
  • We both have our wedding clothes
  • We sent out our wedding invitations
  • We arranged a honeymoon
  • We printed place cards and ceremony programs
  • We reserved a block of rooms at the reception hotel for guests
  • We arranged goodie bags for guests who stay at the hotel
  • We put together party favors for the dining tables.
  • We planned the ceremony
  • We scheduled a ceremony rehearsal
  • My parents arranged a rehearsal dinner
  • Tina’s parents arranged the tea ceremony
  • We picked our first and parent dance songs
  • We gathered a list of songs for the DJ
  • We’ve had two (!) wedding showers

We still have to..

  • Buy more gifts
  • Learn how to dance
  • Figure out table seating
  • Do other stuff that I’m unaware of

Phew! That’s 8 months of work. Now we’re down to the wire. Are we missing anything?? I hope we’ve got it together because my patience is running thin on all things wedding. Time to get this show on the road!
