- Wedding: April 2013
I had my first melt down last week. it was over something so stupid. i couldn’t figure out how to make a playlist on the computer. Fiance laughed, i laughed after i cried. lol
honestly, I’m just a little sick of doing it all. Its become more stressful than fun. I am beyond excited to marry my best friend but at this point I wish we just eloped.
I have all of the vendors booked. But now it’s time to tackle all of the details…my list is too long I don’t even want to start haha
Ugh I still have a lot to do, I am so over this whole planning thing already. Maybe once the holidays are over and my work schedule stops being so crazy I will finally get back to doing everything I need to. I cringe everytime I look at my check list
I have to book hair and makeup and buy attendant gifts. And oh yeah! We still have to figure out what the groom is wearing. 😛 And book a venue for the rehearsal dinner. And I don’t know how I want to wear my hair. And we haven’t booked a hotel yet or done anything about the honeymoon. Ugh, there’s still so much to do!!!
My bridal shower has been the biggest source of stress for me… My Future Mother-In-Law is hosting it (though she lives across the country, so I’m probably a bit more involved than I should be), but my family has been less than helpful. /: Yesterday, I was explaining the situation to the owner of our venue and he must have felt bad for me because he was trying to calm me down, gave me coffee for free, and offered to give me a gift card (the venue is a restaurant, too) to “reimburse” Future Mother-In-Law for the guests who decided they were no longer coming to my shower if we paid for the full amount (we no longer met their minimum requirements). He was so unbelievably nice.
However, I still cried on the way home. Then, I realized he was right… everything would come together. He’s definitely getting a thank you note and a small gift for being so great.
I have ALOT to do!!!!!!!! As for vendors, I still have to get a florist, hairdresser, caterer (maybe), and rental co together. My mom paid for our invitations (THANK GOD). We are so far behind because I’m currently laid off and won’t go back till the beginning of Feb. My girls still have yet to order their dresses but I’ve given them a deadline to get them. From Feb to the end of March and beg of April I will be super busy trying to catch up
I still need to sort out jewelry, hair and makeup. I bought a sash on ebay just the other day and I hope I like the way it looks in person. My pearl bouquet is almost done. I’ve got a veil that I may or may not wear. Shoes have arrived. My sister who’s my Maid/Matron of Honor, is razor-thin close to having her dress. Also, she and a very good friend of mine are planning my bach party and bridal shower. All I have are dates, because everything else is a surprise.
Mostly everyone who’s attending the wedding has reserved their cruise cabin – except for my Dad! I really hope he gets his act together soon.
My fiance still needs a suit. Oh! And he still needs to pick his best man! Ack!
We need to write our vows, pick our first dance song, pick out songs to walk down the aisle, and take dance lessons!
I am sooo behind.. but I don’t really care! I ordered the bridesmaids dreses and I have both of my dresses hanging in the closet! I guess I have shoes….. maybe… if I chose to wear them. My Fiance already has his tux cause he wears one often and the last one he got is super nice. I have not officially booked my venue or florist. I have no idea what photographer to choose.
However, I am not too freaked out. I think everything will work out just fine 🙂
