Hi date twin! I actually have a lot done when I look at my list, but I still feel like I have a lot to do too! I have to have my dress fittings (first one is scheduled for July 20), schedule my bridesmaid’s dress fittings, my hair and make-up trial (scheduled for July 29), find my wedding day jewelry (just earrings I think), buy a few more decoration type things for the tables (LED candles, votives, and table top menu stands from Hobby Lobby), and finish my DIY projects (table runners, possibly cloth napkins, and sinage for signing the guest book, sparkler send-off, etc). Whew! But I have gotten a few big things checked off recently. We ordered our wedding bands and are going to pick them up today (so excited!), bought my wedding day shoes, and we are going to Men’s Wearhouse tomorrow to pick out the guy’s tuxes. I feel like everything is coming together! What about everyone else? I love hearing where everyone is at in their planning, especially my date twins! 🙂

We have pretty much everything done!  I am just finishing up my DIY escort cards and holders (wine corks with flowers), I have to reserve our hotel room, and make hair appintments.  I had my first dress fitting about a week ago, so the second one will be in about 2 weeks.  We got our wedding bands about a month ago, which was super exciting, and that is when it all started to soak in!  I am just buying last minute things now, and putting all the little details together!

We just sent our invites out on 7/1 so the last week has been exciting getting our replies back!!  Just the small DIY stuff left like escort cards, guest book table signage, labels for our dessert table, and programs.  Doesn’t seem like a lot, but I’m sure I’m missing some little details that will consume the last few weeks before the wedding!  My first dress fitting is 7/29 – SO excited for that!

Well Im just finishing up the last few DIY projects. My dress will be ready mid august, my FI still needs to get a suit and something for my son to wear. I still need to figure out makeup and hair…and we still need to arrange music and such. Invites went out over a week ago and only 3 responses so far (out of 115) Oh gosh, I felt like I had ALOT more accomplished than I actually do. I better get my butt in gear.

Oh God I’m getting scared reading!!  He proposed April 25th & has been/will be until mid August with work!  Trying to do alot on my own.  One venue went up in smoke, now trying to get the second one set next week.  I did prefer the second one so I’m happy, but bee-hind!!!!!!  He is as cool as a cucumber bc he books events at work and says it takes him a week to set up a 50,000 person show….I hope we have luck with a 100ish person wedding in his hometown in Utah!!!!

We have a lot done. Although I did make a list yesterday of things we still need to do, and it was a little longer then I wanted to see at this point in time! Most of the items are details oriented or having to do with vendor payments/meetings. The anxiety has kicked in full gear!

We switched our date from 2-25-12 to 9-10-11 just over a week ago.

 

So far, DJ is booked, linens/tables rented, photographer booked, venue booked, cakes taken care of. Going dress shopping in one week. Flowers need to get done today. Registry is done. Invites went out Friday and I already have some RSVPs back.

FI went and took care of the tux yesterday – meaning I have to go back and change it because he picked the most expensive one. We have our bands. 🙂

Omg… soooo much to do.

Im taking my dress for the first fitting, Im very nervous about, it fit when I tried it on in March.(Crossing fingers it still fits) We still have alot to do but the main parts are taken care of, Thank God for My Parents. I still have to work on some flowers, eeeeks and pay for the rest of his ring, buy decorations, jewelry,shoes I thought I lucked out and found a pair but now im taller then him so the search continues. I feel like I have too much to take care of its starting to overwelm me, he assures me that we’ll be fine, Im so Greatful for My Parents they paid alot for our day : )  and no offer from his family, (but thats another blog) Im sure our day will be fabulous. Congrats 9/10/11 brides. Cool

First dress fitting is this weekend. I still need to get my shoes (oops) so wish me luck in my shopping endeavors tomorrow!! Also a lot of little stuff to do, at least I feel like, but I’m not overly stressed and feel like it is all coming together well!! I’m sure when it keeps getting closer and closer I’ll have some flip-out days! 37 days left…insane!!!

Hello Twins!

I am so nervous. I just found out that I’m pregnant and I am afraid I will not be able to fit into my dress.

Other than that, I still need to finish up little details like accessories, paying off my vendors and finshing up details for the reception. Im so nervous yet so excited.

Update: I bought a dress! It’s sitting in a spare bedroom and will be altered 2 weeks before the wedding. Scary, I know.

We just need to finish up music and alcohol. Everhything else is pretty much done. 🙂
