- Wedding: June 2013
How’s everyone doing? 🙂
How’s everyone doing? 🙂
I’ve got all the big items checked off the list…but now I’m on the addressing envelopes and detail phase. There are definitely moments where I’m just ready to be done with the whole shebang, but I’m also so excited about all the friends and family gathering in one place. I just have to get past the rest of grad school and then I’m sure life will be much much better! So far the only complicating factor is the dj debate…I want one, FI wants to do it ourselves…and small budget for it means that his procrastination on that front will likely be detrimental to the quality of any dj we find…
Same for me, big stuff done, but now I have a list a mile long of little stuff! Invitations are out and we are getting RSVPs everyday (which is fun!). I am trying now to work out a day-of timeline that makes sense… harder than I thought!
So in the last 3 days, we changed venues, just reordered invitations, still picking food, hired a videographer, about to hire officiant, have my first fitting next week, the guest list is growing, and I just found out how darn expensive cakes are! It’s been a busy 3 days.
Waiting on the letterpress company to send the darn invitations…that’s the only thing holding us up right now, although we had STD’s so I’m really not concerned…just anxious and excited.
I don’t usually write in this section, but I’m a June 2013 girl too 🙂 We sent out invitations last week, and are getting RSVP’s everyday which is so much fun. I just ordered a ridiculous amount of supplies to make luminaries, favor bags, hotel bags, menu chalkboard, and just ordered our day of stationery! I have a huge list of small items as well as final appointments with the florist, DJ, and officiant, but I think things are running smoothly *knock on wood*
It’s getting exciting now!!
Anyone have a count on how many days left?
I was going to mail my invites earlier, but they are going out on Monday! I’m so excited! I’m in the process now of gathering up all of the little details and extras that I want to have. Lots of scouring through antique shops and etsy hunting! Next on my list is a suit for our ring bearer and fairy wings for our flower girls. We ordered our wedding bands last week and they are due in on the 4th along with my reset ering. I’m beyond excited to see what it looks like!
I just found this section of the bee!!! So many wedding day twins I am right on par with all you ladies, all the big stuff is behind us and I will be postmarking my invites first thing in the morning. I’m just glad to be finished reading and signing contracts! I’m just antsy now to see how all the little elements I have been working on will come together.
Just got the call that my veil is in, which is great timing because my 2nd fitting is at the same bridal salon tomorrow after work. I’m planning on taking the veil up to Philly with me in 2 weeks when I go up for my hair/makeup trial and shower and leaving it there with my grandmother. Is that ok, or do you think I’ll need it again between now and the final fitting…fyi, the salon has a sample of my exact veil.
I started printing my invites yesterday. We’ve only got a few more things to take care of really. The groomsmen need to get their outifits and my bridesmaids need to get shoes, but all the major stuff is done. I already had my final fitting, have all my accessories and everything.
I had invites out over amonth ago but we didn’t do save the dates. The RSVPs are coming in a little slower than I would have hoped and expected but thats ok. All the big stuff is taken care of, now just a million little details to figure out. Im so terrified that I am going to forget something, still waiting on my dress and my girls dresses to arrive. 73 days to go!!
@MapleCreekBride: I’m glad I’m not the only one feeling terrified to forget something!! I can’t believe it’s only 73 days away!! Ack!
I feel like I have a good grip on the major big stuff, it’s the little things that will drive me nuts for the next 2.5 months!
@E_Lynne615: I know me too! like omg..mini champagne glasses for toasts..napkins, and most of all the thing that is stressing me is the day of timeline!! Who goes where when?! who picks up the flowers!? How does the photographer capture me and my girls getting ready AND the groom and his guys getting ready 20 mintues away!?
awesome! I just booked the honeymoon. so excited!
