I’m getting more excited every day! We are almost ready to send out our invitations (my FI got inspired to add ribbon & 2 different stamps to them – I was happily surprised!),  I made our ring-bearer nest, and I just had my first shower! I can’t believe it’s only 2 1/2 months away. I swear I’ll wake up the day of and think "What am I supposed to do today? Oh! Get married!"

I’m feeling good. We’re getting the decorations taken care of. Still need to work on all my things plus get the guys ready. I’ve found that a lot of what we need to do still (ie food that we’re doing ourselves) can’t be done this early. But I’d say about 80% of the big things are done. My family shower is in 2 weeks and I can’t wait! 🙂

So stressed!  But ordered the invites this week, phew.  Ketbuah next.  Yarkulkes.  Shoe shopping (hard than expected). Makeup artist still needed.  Most of the big stuff out of the way.  Crazy amount of little stuff.  Also, my sis is getting married 8/8 and I’m her MOH, so…

I know!  Why does 3 months seem like not enough time to get those little things done!?  Augh!  Deep breath….

Are you guys making your seating charts/escort cards before you get RSVPs? That is one of the big ones I have left but don’t know if I should wait to get a better idea of who is for sure coming. I am getting the invites printed as soon as i get my mailing addresses together on one spreadsheet and get FMIL’s…when those are sent I will be so much less stressed!!!

AAAAHHHHH! I’m so stressed with all these little details towards the end.  I’m terrified I’m going to forget something!  But this weekend my older sister/co-MOH and I made our invites on her Gocco.  They turned out so great and I’m so excited that it’s finally getting closer!  We’ve been engaged for over a year now.

I did a spreadsheet for the seating chart in advance, It will get updated as responses come back. It was actually harder than I thought it would be.

Well, we were originally planning a June wedding and ended up changing it to October and moving it halfway across the country (where we know no one but will be living because of a new job) about a month and a half ago, so I still have plenty to do! Invitations are nearly done, photographer is supposed to call tomorrow, dress came in yesterday, and we have catering down to two people and should get that finalized by Tues. I know most of you ladies probably did all that stuff months ago! I just figure that it’s less time for me to stress over the less-important things.

I have 97 days … so that’s 3 months and 5 days. Ahhh. Its approaching soo fast. Omg.

This week will be my busiest and most stressful thus far. For the last few months I’ve been collaborating with a couple florists and I think that I will sign a contract and have one hired if the deal is fair, we’re meeting tomorrow to finalize the deal.

Also, we’ve been designing invitations and will get her proposal this week as well, hopefully we’ll hire her … invitations go out some time in August.

I also have to order my veil, order ring bearers outfit and decide if I will go with a splurge flower girl dress or continue my search for a deal.

Have to order my favors too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH and go to the church to pick up info on ceremony etc. … and also marriage class! Yay.

I’m doing better than I thought.  My cousins have taken over most of the planning so I don’t have as much to worry about.  I can’t believe that it is less than 3 months away!!! It blows my mind, especially when people say, "you still have plenty of time to do everything…" I know I sure don’t feel that way…
