Really all we have to do is:

1. Call stragglers who have not RSVPed (at this point, we’ve got like… 5 cards out there somewhere out of 99 which is NOT BAD)

2. Seating chart and then get that list to the calligrapher who’s doing the escort cards

3. Pick some dinner music (ugh, I need to provide MP3s and I don’t know what I want yet)

4. Force my FI to pick a song to dance with his mother to (this is happening this weekend whether he knows it or not)

5. Try to relax. 


I really think that’s it though I mean, I could be wrong. I think the hardest bit is going to be packing for the two weeks we are gone (one week for the wedding, one for the honeymoon) but I can’t do that until right before we leave!

Sigh… I wish everything was already done, but due to some really aggravating hiccups in the process there is still stuff to do. 

Me: Get music from FI to send to Videographer

Send confirmations/reminders to all vendors

Finalize the wedding cake and make full payment (this is not my fault and we are now playing phone tag)

Make second payment to photographer

Buy/pay for last minute honeymoon items and try to pay the gratuities for the honeymoon in advance

FI: Get his and our son’s suits tailored

Get together all of the music for ceremony/reception

Get together the songs for wedding video

Take groomsmen to get their suits (this is going to be super last minute and his fault, groomsmen are far away)

Packing his clothes and what not for the honeymoon.

I can’t think of anything else… It is really annoying, I just want to be done. I have been planning this for over 2 years, I am irritated that I am not finished yet.
