You’ve accomplished so much! we haven’t finalized favors or sent the invitations yet, FI just picked groomsmen so they’re definitely not ready and my dress doesn’t arrive until next week. Our wedding is also about 2 hours away, for that semi destination feel. 

 

I’m starting to become quite nervous. I do have a checklist and really hope I haven’t forgotten too many things. I just recently added items for designing programs, preparing welcome bags and planning group transportation to the rehearsal dinner (we just switched to an off-site location).

 

my vendors tell me I don’t need to worry, that I have plenty of time. I sure hope they’re right! 🙂

We plan on ~30 bags, for those guests that stay at the hotel. We will include bottles of water, homemade cookies (our venue won’t allow outside food so we can’t have a cookie table), a bottle of beer from the local brewery plus a koozie that says “To have and to hold and keep your drink cold”, and a local postcard. The hotel already gives out local maps and info on local attractions. 

Our summer is definitely packed with planning – lots of short trips to meet with vendors plus all the parties. You were smart to get things done early!

I’m stressed. I keep going from feeling good to stressed out. We ordered our invitations last week and I’m a nervous wreck about them. I feel like I didn’t get any input from anyone on them. Then I was telling my mom we ordered them and what decisions I’d made and all I got was “you shouldn’t have done this, you should have done this instead, etc”. Well, then you should have told me that before! So I’m nervous how they’ll look or what people will think. They shipped yesterday. 

Where I live, it’s traditional to have a “Social”. I know lots of people don’t agree with it, but honestly I only did it because it’s what people like. I’ve been asked “When’s your social” more times than I have about the wedding. It’s in a month and it’s my biggest headache right now.

-I need to figure out who to hire for makeup.
-Need to figure out the cake flavour. 
-Need to book transportation.

I think those are the biggest things right now besides the invitations and some DIY projects.  

My most favourite part of the planning so far? I guess dress shopping. I love my dress. I wish I could try it on right now. It would make me excited instead of stressed!
