Ahhh I am so nervous!!  I am not happy with my body right now- time to work out more!  

I don’t have much left to do and it’s a wonderful feeling.  Planning has been exciting but it has been stressful at times… family disagreements, feeling rushed.  I’ve heard other girls say they miss planning, but I don’t think I will.  

To do still: finish planning ceremony, put together centerpieces, plan seating chart, meet with vendors again, bachelorette party!!!, ….not much else!  

I am most excited for the ceremony when I walk down the aisle to my FI, and also for our first dance!

Ah I told FI that this morning, he was just like “yeah..I know” lol no fun. 5 weeks from Saturday, whatttt?!?!

I got a bunch of last minute things yesterday (cake cutting set, cake topper, centerpieces, frame for guest book etc but still have a lot left!)

Still need to: Dress fitting, book videographer, pick out programs/hymns/reading, seating chart (ugh, dreading it) then I need to order it!, put together centerpieces, meet with DJ for first time, Meet Hair & Make up artists for first time, pick out a cake and flavors, Finish gifts for BMs, GMs, parents, RB, FG, Ushers, Get my jewlery and shoes and garter, Make our table numbers, decide on ceremony decor, make a slideshow for during dinner, make and send rehearsal dinner invites, then just final meetings with vendors and final payments. 

Wish I wasn’t graduating, starting a new job and grad school all within 3 weeks of the wedding! Can’t wait for the much needed honeymoon!

Gah I know! So exciting! I really need to plan my ceremony, buy my sand ceremony kit. Get together with my officiant. OH and ask my aunt to do a reading for us. I was gonna have FI’s SIL do one too but she isn’t coming. Oh well.

Need to get table numbers, and put together a seating chart too but I don’t have enough rsvps to start that yet.

At times I feel like I’m super behind other times I’m cool as a cucumber.

SERIOUSLY. I have been engaged for two years so next month just seems NUTS. I am freaking out scheduling all the final meetings, trying to find where all this money is coming from, I still need to book honeymoon excursions. I’m waiting for a ton of stuff to come in. There are so many other little things i need to deal with. Just AHHHHH! ITS SO SOON!!!!

Flowers are the biggie that I still need to do, but FMIL and I are going to do some scouting and some experimenting this weekend. 

I also need to do some of the little DIY projects, like the table numbers, various signs (favors, thank you, here comes the bride), programs, menus, and the flower garland for the birch arbor my dad is making. We need to make our music decisions and I need to touch base with our photographer. 

I’m so excited and also a little freaked out about how much I still have to do in six weeks.

So exciting! I woke up this morning with butterflies! 🙂 We got the keys to our new house (renting) yesterday and it all seems so real!

 

To Do List! Write vows, finish up presents for everyone, slideshow for the reception, finalize the order of events at the reception, finish up signage, and seating chart (when we get all the RSVPs!). I’m planning long distance so the welcome bags won’t get done until the week before the wedding but fortunately I have that whole week off. We’ll also have to put name tags on the olive oil favors as that will be their placecard, but my mom says she’ll have all the bottles filled by the time I get there.

It’s getting so close!! 😀

Im mildly freaking out. My biggest concern is dropping that last 5-7 lbs and feeling my best the day of! I still have to meet with our DJ & Florist to go over final details & make sure my timeline for hair/MUA/photographer/videographer is correct. Also going to my last seamstress appt in a couple weeks. AHHHHH!

holy shit! That’s CRAZY!!! NEXT MONTH! I didn’t think of it like that lol My date is June 28th so it’s the end of the month but still. Insanity.

I changed my mind last minute on another dress so I just got that one 😉 I’ve been busy working on myself and lost 15 lbs — working on 15 more by the wedding. We have lots of DIY projects we need to get on! Next week I have 2 showers and a bridal luncheon so next week will be very wedding-heavy 🙂
