I feel like this week is a big one for checking off things from my list…
Tomorrow I am putting the deposit on the flowers.
We have our Pre-Cana (marriage prep course) Friday evening and Saturday.
I think I have made decisions about accessories.
FI is going to get my wedding band paid for and pick it up.
We are looking into getting on each other’s insurance plans.
FI’s house may be sold, we find out on Friday if the conditions were met.
RSVPs are trickling in!
We are pretty close to booking our hotel for the honeymoon.
I am feeling more stress right now than I have had so far. FI wants to help, but really doesn’t know where to begin. How does your FI do with wedding planning help?

Honestly, too long for me to want to look at or think about… and I am worried! Your wedding is the day before mine and I haven’t gotten a single RSVP back. Just undeliverable invites for one reason or another…

@kperry3 – girl, i hear you about trying to get everyone to buy their outfits. why is this turning out to be harder than i thought it would be!?
– book my hair/makeup artist by fri.
– wait to hear from other florists since my preferred florist asked if we can wait till after mothers day to continue consulting
– freak out that i still dont have a florist with just under two months to go!
– get my EMERGENCY baptism on friday at my home parish which is four hours away! long story short, the church that my parents baptized me at in my birth country isnt recognized by the catholic church and yes, i am just finding this out after ALL this time (almost 26 yrs) living as a “catholic” which was never “legit” because my baptism wasn’t. we’re having a destination wedding at the new diocese said unless i was baptized for real, our wedding would be a “mixed-religion” ceremony not legally recognized by the church. so my home priest thought it was ridiculous and is squeezing me in ASAP for an emergency baptism!!!
– ring shop
– mail out dresses i bought for my flower girl

Hmmm…this week my to-do’s are:
– Send out invites (once we receive them)
– Purchase my shoes, jewelry, and sash
– Purchase men’s ties and girl’s jewelry
– Find someone to play acoustic guitar during our ceremony (this has been the most difficult thing so far!!)
– Confirm honeymoon (in FI’s grandmother’s hands)
– Start DIYing ceremony and reception decor…yikes!
– Get marriage license
– Attend our first pre-marriage counseling course
So much to-do!! I’ve been pretty laid-back so far, but I am starting to feel like a crazy person with everything that needs to be done pronto.

@mmauricio: Yea, it’s becoming quite annoying. I gave an extra two months for two BMs who had babies in December. But it’s time to go ahead and buy the dresses… they still have not. As for GMs, I’m sure they’ll wait until the very last day (May 31st) to buy their suits. Only one has even responded so far.

I’ve been pretty productive the last few weeks, so not much on the list for this week thankfully! I have to finalize the alcohol order with our wholesaler and finish up my programs and table numbers. Nothing too bad. Getting the marriage license next week though, that ought to definitely put some pressure on me!
