I just sent my invitations last week and already have some RSVPs back, it is so exciting! I am starting to think about our OOT bags and programs, I’m making them myself. I can’t believe there is just under two months to go! I’m really looking forward to the wedding and trying not to get swamped with the remaining details!

the last of my invitations went out today!! makes it so real! i really hope people RSVP and for the appropriate number of people. i just don’t want to deal with any +1 or kid drama.

finalized flowers, linen and menu last week. we still have to sign a contract for drapery and i have 2 more dress fittings. and need to work on the day of stuff (programs, menus etc). a few other things that we can’t finalize until we have a more accurate guest number. excited! but freaking out! ahh! FI is counting down and always knows exactly how many days are left. its very cute 😀

I wish it would just hurry up! I don’t know how people have long engagements-it will be only 10 months for us and it just seems to be dragging! My dress will be in in a week or two and I need to get it altered, but other than that i have been done with planning for awhile now.

I’m freaking out! Talked to my DOC yesterday and feel a million times better than I did two days ago, though! Working on invites tonight, they’ll hopefully go out by Saturday. My dress came in to the shop today! I have my first fitting next Saturday (stupid full-time job…). IT’S SO CLOSE NOW! 😀

seems like i’m in a similar position as many: anxiously awaiting the day while busying myself with paper materials and finalizing purchases like the card box, (secret) favors, guest book pens etc. my first fitting is this weekend and i can’t wait to put my dress on for the first time since november!!

best to all of you in your final weeks!

my invitations went out this week and we got ours in the mail today. it was soggy and the beautiful calligraphy was smeared from the rain. i really hope ours was the only one that looked like that. made me sad 🙁

Invitations, invitations, invitations. THAT’s what’s weighing most on my mind right now. Most were sent out yesterday (waited for a couple of dry days), but have a few stragglers where we’re waiting for the addresses, and need to make/send/finalize a list for “Dance only” invites. 

Also making program fans this week. I’m cutting the paper and pairing everything up, and my Mom and her girlfriends are having a wedding crafting party and will be gluing them to paint sticks in a couple of weeks. (She is enticing them with beer. Gotta love Wisconsin girls! They’ll do just about anything for beer!) 

Next, making ribbon chains for the ceremony decor. And waiting for my dress to come in. I’m really enjoying everything, and the next 2 months are gonna FLY! So much to do, but still manageable. 🙂

@sdbell88 We’re getting married in Nashville! Where did you get your dress? Mine’s from the White Room in Murfreesboro, but now I have it at their Lebanon store for alterations.

I feel like its just the litle things now! FI still needs to pick out his ring, oot bags, picking songs, timelines, buying alcohol.
