LADIES OUR WEDDINGS ARE NEXT MONTH!!!

I'm a ball of emotions..especially after the unexpected early wedding gift ;)   I can't believe our turn is near??  We're slowing paying vendors off, receiving more rsvps in the mail, starting and finishing projects...


 


How about you?


 



  • How are you feeling?

  • What projects have you completed and what else do you have to do?

I am feeling so outrageously overwhelmed!!  I have a shower/Bparty next weekend, I'm moving the weekend after that, and then I have finals.  I think it will all be ok after that, and I have 3 weeks until the wedding.  But right now, OVERWHELMED!!


I am packing all week, and taking a break from the wedding until we're at least moved.


Aaaand we're just watching our bank acct go down as final payments are due :)  Gotta love it!

All I have left is to:


finish and assemble and send out invites SUPER LATE on this one =x but we did send save the dates, too, so it should be okay.

figure out cake design


print out menus


figure out the order of the day


get engagement photos done *2 weeks, lol. really late on this!)


figure out hair/makeup

    i'm on may 1st and it is sure coming up fast! i'm feeling pretty good about the wedding but totally got the flu Friday and have been in bed 3 days straight. i had already lost more weight than I needed to for my dress before getting sick so I am a little nervous that it will need to be taken in when i go for my fitting on wednesday.


    i'm finalizing all the paper elements - programs, reserved ceremony seating, rehearsal menus, rehearsal seating cards, reception escort cards, reception seating cards, signature drink signs, table numbers, and thank you cards.


    next weekend I have a 12K race and FH's birthday party on Saturday and then my shower on Sunday. I'm so excited.


    we've done final vendor appointments with our venue and decor team and our officiant. just need to do the handoff with our DOC, DJ, and photographer. everything else seems to be running smoothly. my OOT family starts arriving on 04-23 - can't wait!

    OMIGOD what don't we have to do???  That would be a shorter list I think :)           Here goes:


    -Select/finalize menu for rehearsal dinner


    -Design and send rehearsal dinner invites


    Meet with DJ to finalize music


    -Meet/speak with florist to finalize flower and centerpieces numbers


    -Meet with priest to discuss ceremony order and music


    -Select readers and readings for ceremony


     -Seating chart (need responses back - we've gotten several)


    -Order placecards for reception


    -Design and order programs for ceremony


    -Get marriage license


    -Pick up wedding bands (5/1)


    -Groom needs to order his tux and get groomsman to as well***


    ***Have been telling him this for 1.5mos now****


    The list actually doesn't look TOO bad, but every weekend is pretty much full and me and FI work 50-55hrs/week...so there's not much time other than the weekends.  I'm feeling very overwhelmed and like things aren't getting done...I'm just very, very worried we're going to forget to do something!  Not to mention I still don't "look" the way I want to.  UHHHH!

    Mine is in late May and we are still not sure if we can legally marry each others.


    So most of our focus  has been on the papers rather on the wedding.

    I'm super excited but dealing with some health issues has kind of put a damper on things.  We still have a bunch of little things to do but the major things are done so it should be okay.
