So wedding is two weeks away, RSVP’s are in, officiants been paid in full and the ceremony is mostly planned except for the very important vows, but she’s a pro she can rattle something off the top of her head if need be-so there will be an actual marriage that day. The venue’s booked, I have a DOC (but she doesn’t know any plans), alcohol is set, and 75% of glassware and dishes are packed and ready to go. Linens are purchased but not laundered or ironed. There are table runners and chair covers on their way, and vases ready to be filled with flowers.
I haven’t ordered food (have to have the order in one week before so theres still time once a menu is decided on), hired a pianist for the ceremony, put together a day of timeline or communicated said timeline to any vendors/wedding party/family. I have not contacted the venue about the number/placement of chairs and tables, or ordered flowers to put in previously mentioned vases or have any other decor, seating charts….or anything else that normally needs to be taken care of.
But, I’m done planning. I QUIT! It feels great! I told FH if he wants food or anything else he’ll need to get it done.
So when I arrive that day, what do y’all think I’ll find?

You’ll find love and happiness and the perfect amount of booze.

My wedding is 2 weeks away also and I know that if I just quit now, nothing would be finished. So I think if you really care about the details, then you might want to make sure someone knows what still needs to be done. Maybe give FI a list of things to finish?
There is no way that anyone would know what is running through my head of things left to do.
And if you haven’t taken the linens out and ironed them, I highly recommend you make sure someone do it. I just unpacked ours yesterday and every single thing needs to be ironed.
But, if you really don’t care about the things left to do, then go for it! Just don’t be disappointed if you get there and it isn’t done.

@Goofball: You are a brave, brave woman. Much more fearless than I. I have too many control needs to ever through caution to the wind like this. 🙂

@winstonchurchill: Yes! All the important things are covered 🙂
@mtbikelover: A list would constitute planning, FI a smart guy he can figure out what needs to be done, and to be fair if he asks me to help I will. Today I ordered the flowers he picked out.
@AirForceWife78: 🙂 Brave? Maybe, or else I just cracked. Although I think people finally realize that I was serious when I said the back-up plan for food was a couple of sheet pizzas.
