  • Wedding: October 2013

We started planning in May of last year so about the same amount of time as you, and i’m getting married two weeks after you. It hits me when we have family or friends call us letting us know they’re booking their flights. It gives me butterflies when people remind me that it’s three months away. My first dress fitting was last weekend and we scheduled my second dress fitting, then third and pick up, one appointment in August, September, & October. That’s nothing!! 

Ny envelopes are addressed and i’m going to assemble my invitations tomorrow, and send them out August 1st give or take. 

My Ketubah (Jewish marriage license) came in from Israel yesterday and it looks beautiful and it also freaked me out because we’re so close to signing that bad boy!

My shower/bachelorette weekend is happing in exactly one month, which BLOWS MY MIND, and I can’t wait to see all my girls come in for a really fun and relaxing weekend. It’s gonna feel really real then. 

Eek, thanks for making me so excited!!

@MrsFutureG:  We got engaged last April so I feel you! I feel so behind and can’t stand all the wedding emails I’m getting from the Knot and other things. They just stress me out. I feel like I get one thing off my to do list and three more add on! Just realized the other day we have to feed our bridal party and the people that are there getting ready since photos will start early in the morning. Lol… all these hidden cost that are in NO wedding budget spreadsheet…

I did! We started planning this April 2013 and someone reminded me we only have XX days left.  I’m at the point where I feel that whatever happens will happen.

@MrsFutureG:  Yes! I keep having moments where I’m like HOLY CRAP this is really happening!

I brought my 2 dresses to the seamstress I’m using this past Wednesday, and when she had me all pinned in I looked stunning and was just mesmerized by my image as a bride. Since there was a time when I truly believed I would never get married, I felt like I had been slapped in the face with “OMG you are a bride!!!” Also, having the lovely older ladies fawning over my dress choices was really fun, and at one point I looked out the window and saw a little 10 year old and her teen sister just staring at me and smiling. It was so cute!

And, my Shower is tomorrow! That’s right. Tomorrow. I can’t belive it’s happening. 18 months ago this wasn’t even real. Now, it’s time to get down to business as there are only 2.5 months left and oh so much to do.

My invites will be ready to send by Monday, so I feel better abotu that. I was really worried I wouldn’t get them ready in time.

Anyway, It’s great to see I’m not alone in this feeling,a dn that we are all getting ramped up now.

@MrsFutureG:  LOL!  When we got engaged, we didn’t want to wait a year. Our wedding will be pretty small so that helps.  We have all of the larger things out of the way, but the small details is the killer.

Yep, things are definitely getting real!  Invites are almost ready to send out, my to-do list is getting pretty short, and my bridal showers are coming up in a few weeks.  Eeeeeep!

@MrsFutureG:  We’re paying 110% of it ourselves too.  Honestly, our budjet is very small <$4000 and we’re not doing showers, etc.  It will be pretty old-school in that way, LOL.

99 days for us. Just about everything is organized now, just a lot of the boring stuff. I’ve been planning since Feb 2013. I just want it to be the day off now. Only thing I am still worrying about is getting my arms more toned in time!!! I’m also dreading the week before as we have to do all the last minute things in a short time because we don’t arrive in the country where the wedding is being held until then.

@MrsFutureG:  Oh I understand. It got really real, really quick! We’ve been planning since 12/12, so it will be cool to finally see how everything shakes out. I’m nervous cause I’m a type A personality and I want things to go extremely well, but I’m also supper giddy because I’m marrying the most amazing guy ever! Such a potpourri of emotions!

I’ve done almost everything though, except I need a veil…FAST. I also need to plan out our rehearsal dinner.

Did I mention that FH and I are paying for this ourselves and we have 400 guests?!? I’m super religious, so I’ve been praying the whole way and that’s what has kept my nerves down…the facials help too, lol.

89 days to go! Yeah!!!

I totally understand! Started with 681 days, started planning right after we got engaged in Dec 2011, and now only 95 days to go. It is absolutely mind blowing how soon it is going to happen. For me….the scariest part is being the center of attention. But otherwise I am really excited, because on July 20th we are sending invites, and on July 26th I get to finally start alterations and get my dress, which is pretty big, to actually fit me. I can barely remember what it looks like cause its so big now :/ Then hair and makeup trial on August 20th. All so real now!

Also, I just recently the past few nights have been having dreams (or should I say nightmares) about the wedding. Either the hair and makeup doesn’t show, or the flowers don’t show up. I just find it interesting that I’m dreaming about it now lol.
