I have a mile-long to do list, but it’s mostly things I want to do, like finishing our semi-DIY invites and assembling them! I say that now, but I bet I’ll be so glad when I actually start the assembling, etc.

Actually, I’m most nervous about losing weight – I have a couple months to do it, but when my dress came in last month it wouldn’t zip up all the way, eek! I should be more freaked out about that but I’m not. Uh oh.

Really, I SHOULD have done that just in case. But after they measured me, they didn’t ask me what size I wanted… and in the flurry of things we didn’t think to ask what size they ordered me! I’m hoping if I lose about 10 or 15 pounds total by the end of July, the dress will fit.

I need to exercise. My dress zipped up on Friday when I tried it on with my shoes, but barely. Two months to lose ~5 pounds.

My List is definitely getting shorter – thank god!

I’m getting so excited for all of us!  🙂 Here’s my to-do list.  After typing this all out, i’m starting to feel a little scared…

I still need to figure out my veil (I might be wearing my mom’s if I can change it a little)

meet with the church to finalize details of the ceremony/music

Find ushers and readers for the ceremony (I just heard that we’re supposed to find somebody to vacuum and clean up the room we get ready in at the church…and I have no idea who I can ask…)

meet with the DJ

e pictures (our photog scheduled a shoot for us back in october but canceled it, and I haven’t heard from her since…hmmm)

Finalize floral details

Make/print/send off invitations (my dear sweet Fiance is wanted to use his graphic design skills and design our invites, however, he’s procrastinating and we do not share the same opinions on what looks good in this situation…oh buddy)

Meet with the cake provider

final dress fitting

Draft/print wedding programs

place cards!

figure out transportation

Get my Fiance to register for the tools he wants

Hair/makeup consultation

Apply for wedding license

Bridesmaids gifts!

Oh, jeez.  I thought I was in the home stretch but this list is big.  Good luck with the final details ladies!  I’m sure you all will have absolutely fabulous weddings!  🙂

Sending out invites this week!

Finishing up DIY crafts (seating chart, etc)

Picking out the tuxes! I cannot get my fiance to do this! Some lame employee at Mens Wearhouse said he can wait until right before so that’s what he’s doing. I’d like to give that person a piece of my mind! haha

  • Honeymoon airfare was booked 2 weeks ago for an awesome deal!
    THREE glorious weeks through Europe! Here we come!

    Starting to slowly work through our itinerary one trip day at a time. Laughing

  • Talking to a Etsy seller now to create custom Gerbera Daisy sugar flowers for the cake decoration. WAY cheaper than having the bakery do it.
