I still feel like we have a ton to do!


– printing programs

– finalizing the seating chart

– making place cards

– folding menus

– putting favors together

– wrapping everyone’s gifts

– doing Out of Town bags

– writing bios for our wedding party intros

and I think that’s just the top of the list!


Good luck everyone!!

I’m feeling the crunch! The programs are printed, just need to be assembled. The place cards are done and so are the seating assignments. Table numbers, check. Favors, check. Gifts, check. Out of Town bags – which we a big pain in the you know what – are also done. I think I mostly need to focus on communication. I want to finish my timeline for the day of this weekend and send it to vendors and the wedding party. I think that will help. Right now, I feel like no one knows what is going on when expect for me! Yikes.

I’m excited, but also a little bit nervous. I can’t believe my wedding day will be here and gone before I know it. I guess it’s “bittersweet.” I keep trying to remind myself that “it’s just another day” but it’s hard to not want it all perfect when you’ve been dreaming about this day since you were five!

Congrats all you bees!

Hey Ladies!

15 days to go for the 9/5 ladies :)!! Woohoo! I cannot wait. I still have a bit to do but I am not stressed at all. This weekend will be spent organizing things, my bachelorette party tomorrow and hair & makeup trials on Sunday.

Just remember to breathe and don’t sweat the small stuff!

How are we doing ladies?? I am finishing place cards tonight and favors with my mom tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚   I’m doing my best to make my timeline “idiot proof” aka man proof, so I gave it to my 16 year old brother to proofread for me, and I think he actually figured it out.  So, a few more tweaks and everyone will know, who, what, when, where, etc.  No why – that’s the BECAUSE I SAID SO!

I’m the most stressed about the fact that we are packing up and leaving this Friday since I live in Boston and the wedding is in Philly.  I’m so worried we’re going to leave something! We have an ongoing list of things to bring, and have started suitcases and piles of stuff by the door, but it still makes me nervous. 

I’m really happy I have the other stuff done – even wrapped bridal party gifts and wrote notes already!  We are going to assemble Out of Town bags (50 of them!) in Philly, and print directions for the guests there, but then we’re really all set.  I think?  I’m just waiting for that one last thing to pop up that I totally forgot about.  What could I be forgetting?

To those of you with a lot left on your list – enlist help!  I has a bridesmaid help me assemble programs this weekend, and it was actually fun.  Of course, we rewarded ourselves generously with wine afterward…

Oh you all seem like you have it together!

I’m TOTALLY stressed out. SO many last minute things to do, nevermine the logistics of trying to get everyone where they need to be, and communicating it to them. (BM last night: “Oh yea, I saw your email, but it was really long, so I said I’d go back later and look, but I didn’t”)

Cant believe the day is almost here…trying not to break out into a cold sweat…lol

Luckily, a lot of them are just printing and then cutting so nothing too complicated.  I just can’t believe it is coming so fast!

My final project is to finish DIY on the hair flower, then I am done!  Of course, I have to organize everything and get it packed up, oh and pack for the Fiance and myself so we can cram it all into the rental car and make the trip to PA!
