- Wedding: July 2014 - Backyard
Is anyone else a July 19 bride? I am starting to get fluttery nerves. I mostly just want the weekend to go smoothly and everyone to have a really good time. Our ceremony (which we are still finalizing!) will be short and sweet, and the reception is as laid back as can be. Pizza, beer, and music!
I guess I am most nervous about making sure everyone is fed and happy throughout the weekend. It is a very casual, come hang out at the house if you are in town, kind of thing. I am not a great hostess and I always get nervous. Thankfully, my future MIL and best friend both LOVE to host parties so I am handing everything over to them.
And mostly, I am done wating to be FI’s wife! I am so happy and so grateful to spend my life with him.
How are you all doing? What has you nervous or anxious? I hope you are all feeling excited and happy as well!

I’m doing well with planning. I feel like there are things I’m forgetting about though.
I’m really annoyed with RSVPs though. We invited 480 guests and the deadline was Wednesday. (Our caterer doesn’t need to know until July 10). We still have not heard from over 125 people. So we get to begin calling people on Monday. How hard is it to mail a postcard that has postage.
My shower and Bachelorette party are tomorrow so I’m excited for those. Mostly, I can’t wait to be officially married in 22 days.

I’m a July 19 bride! I’m actually feeling really, really panicked about getting everything done. I’m so worried I will forget something.

engagedsagebrush: yep! 22 DAYS!! we live in California and are getting married in Minnesota… I don’t fly out until the 8th… SO MUCH TO DO!! I am so excited… but holy cow where did the past 18 months go?? Are any of you ladies going on your honeymoon shortly after? I feel like I am going to be living out of a suitcase for 3.5 weeks… We leave for our honeymoon to the Dominican Republic on the 22nd and are there till August 1st. So, July 8th- August 1st I will be living out of a suitcase… whew!
I agree with PP’s on RSVP’S.. I am getting so frustrated…it’s all family members I am missing on my dads side (who has a huge family)…how hard is it to send back something that already has postage? We sent them out mid-May and asked for a reply by July 1st… *sigh* I really do not look forward to hounding my family for an RSVP…
