Get a marriage license. Find out what is required by your state to apply for a marriage license. Do you or your partner need a copy of your birth certificates? Do you have an approved copy? Find out specifically what they require so you can order an appropriate copy or a signed original if needed. Do you need a copy of a divorce decree? You may have to contact the county where your divorce was finalized to acquire one.

Follow up all along the planning process. Continue to follow up and check the status of things with your party, vendors, etc. With a tight time line you can't let anyone lose focus.
Schedule make up and hair for yourself, the mothers and the bridesmaids for the day of the wedding. It is fine for them to be responsible for the cost themselves. Don't feel obligated to pay for it but don't give them specific style demands unless you are footing the bill.
Make a list of things you will need the day of the wedding. Keep this list in your planner. Add to it as you think of things. Discuss this with your bridesmaids or maid of honor. See if they can help you remember or take control of your bags

Stock a wedding preparedness bag.
Here are some things you may need that are commonly needed and sometimes forgotten:
Duct tape. Seriously, this is the best at fixing hems, tears, holding bras in place, you name it. Super models use it and wedding planners swear by it. Lighted make up mirror Oscillating fan (Wedding dresses aren't comfortable to hang out in, she'll get quite warm while waiting.) Advil, Tylenol, Pepto-Bismol Extra makeup, powder, lipstick Slippers or comfortable shoes for before the wedding or after if your feet get too sore Baby powder--used to cover spots on the dress
Hair supplies: bobby pins, super hold hairspray, curling iron Body supplies: deodorant, perfume, bra, foundation garments, etc. Sewing kit with spools of thread in the color of the bride's dress, the formal dress australia and the tuxedos.

Congratulations! You should be well on your way to a great and memorable wedding that will be a pleasure for you, your future spouse and your guests. Keep in mind that small, sweet and intimate is always better than big, impersonal and lavish
