I’m getting really stressed out about invites…we ordered them the first week in July and they’re STILL not in! We ordered from a smaller mom-and-pop shop and they say they keep playing phone tab with the company since they should have arrived by now! My mom keeps losing sleep because we’re trying to get them out by August 15 since the RSVP date is Sept. 15… I’m just trying to remain calm at this point!

But I’m telling people I know who are engaged right now to order the invites early…even if they’re sitting in the closet, addressed and stamped for two months before you actually need to mail them…ORDER THEM!!

Ugh, my invites STILL aren’t in! Apparently they are in the “finalization stage,” whatever that means, but apparently they’ll be overnighted on Monday so Tuesday night will be invitation stuffing apocalypse time!

Woo hoo, October brides unite! I have my final fitting this week. I’m still looking for wine for the big day and I need to put a playlist together for my DJ provided that he emails me back and doesn’t stand me up again. sealed

Ever since I hit the 60 day mark last week, I’ve been getting more and more stressed! I thought I was close to being done, but the little things keep adding up. We still have about 45% of our RSVPS outstanding, so I imagine we will be chasing some people down next week. My first fitting and hair trial are both in September, and someone decided to throw me a last minute bridal shower, also in September! Still need to get a few decorations made/bought (signs, seating chart, tablecloths), and finalize everything with the venue and caterer. 

I went to see my doctor and asked for a refill of my Xanax. When I told her I was getting married in October, she laughed and said “Of course you need a refill!” 

I love my doctor. She understands.
