im getting so excited so thought i would share!
this week seems to have been the week of the wedding coming together, monday i recieved a call from the bridal shop to say my dress and viel had arrived and i could book my fitting appointments, i went to ‘visit’ my dress and picked up my viel to book a hair trial.
yesterday my evening invitations finally turned up, i ideally wanted them out to everyone by now but they went missing in the post (lots of panic occured) so can finally get those sorted
and then today i check my emails to find my ring designers have emailed me pictures of our stunning wedding bands.
how is everyone else doing, what have you left to do? x

@penguinslovecrumpets: YEAH for you!!!!! Last night we met with photographer to plan the “Day of” schedule and also met with decorator to finalize centerpieces and linens. I just ordered my veil today :). My dress is in alterations and we both have our weddings bands as well. We are currently working with music coordinator at church picking out songs and setting all of that up. Basically things are done and were just waiting. My first shower is in 3 weeks and I’m super stoked. 🙂

Sounds like you all are in great shape! I have my fingers crossed that my dress will come in this week, I’m so anxious to see it again!! Mostly right now, I’m working on addressing invitations with the goal of sending them next week. And I’m working on figuring out our whole ceremony and chosing some readings. Other than that, things are feeling quiet, but I know I’ll start to freak out soon!

We are doibg great, I feel like we are on schedule. We sent out our invitations and are starting to receive RSVPs which is nice. We got our wedding bands early this year, and my jewelry and hair piece are being made as we speak. The boys are going for their tux fitting tonight. I’m starting dress alterations in a couple of weeks, as well as veil alterations and all of our vendors are set up. We are half done our premarital counseling courses and only have small stuff left to do like seating arrangements, card box, favors and stuff.
Feeling pretty good about where we are… FOR NOW. I’m sure I still have some panic moments ahead of me hehe.

-Invitations were sent out last week, and RSVPs are trickling in.
-My dress is in, and a fitting has been scheduled for August, since it only needs minor alterations
-Have my jewelry and shoes, veil has been ordered
Still need to get Fiance a suit and pick ties/vests for the guys, which is scheduled for weekend after next, and get the ceremony finalized and whatnot. Not too far behind at all, though!

Everything seems to be coming together now. I am working on my invites now and hope to have them mailed the second week of July. We still need to pick out ties for the guys, print our menus.
I already have my dress, veil, shoes and jewelry and scheduled my first fitting in two weeks.
I just set up an appointment with my venue for the end of July to look at our table settings. (She is renting us some linens for us so that we can see what it would look like in the ballroom) After that appointment, we need to set up an appointment with our florist to go over centrepieces.
I know the only thing that is left is only the little things, but I feel like the list is never ending.

@leahsmom0201: Your photographer passed away?! My goodness, I’m sorry to hear that!
As for me, everything seems to be on track. I have a few DIY things left to do (programs, place cards, signs). Fittings and trials are on the calendar for July and August. Invitations went out last week, and RSVPs are starting to come in.
But, I have to admit, every time I see the countdown on The Knot my stomach does a little lurch. (What? 73 days?! That’s not enough time!!) But I haven’t had any major freak-outs… yet.

@Mrs.DBee: Luckily there is a back up and i feel so bad for his wife as they were in the buisness together (he’s the talent, she’s the buisness) i’m just nervous that there is no back up for our back up!
@penguinslovecrumpets: 80 more Days!!!!! 😀
Shoes shopping and other misc. stuff with my mom today yay!

I am working on my invites and have finalized my guest list this week as well as collected everyone’s address! I hope to get them out by the second week of July. Still lots to do! Trying to take it one day at a time!!!!

Doing great =) It’s more of a waiting game for us now. Although there are some few things that need to be taken care of like tuxes, my Fiance and his groomsmen need to get together for a fitting. One of the guys would flake out whenever they plan to go so they need to figure out their schedules and just do it. We are going to get our wedding bands in a few weeks. My final fitting would be first week of August and that would buy me enough time to lose some more weight lol Let’s see, we are also in the process of finalizing our menu. We have been getting rsvp responses , just waiting on those to finalize our guest list. Other than that just a few things left on the shopping list; napkins, plates, silverware, favors.. etc. One step at a time and everything is working out well
