Ditto. Invites are out, RSVPs are starting to come back. First shower is done (also floored by everyone’s generousity!!!), second shower is in August. First dress fitting is at the end of July. Hair/make up trial is booked first week of August. I just need to get to organizing everything as well. I bought a bunch of Rubbermaid totes at Walmart over the weekend so I can start dividing and labeling everything. Hopefully wedding mayhem will be toned down after that.

It’s going by SO fast! I feel like June didn’t even exist!!! What the heck is this time warp I’m living in?!

I’m a little freaked by the nearness.

Invitations are stuffed, sealed, stamped, and ready to go out next weekend.  We have to finalize our readings so that I can make the programs.  Our final tasting is next weekend, which means I can make menu cards.  I am also making escort cards.  I hate DIY, so I have been putting off all of these projects. 

We’re working through our pre-marital counseling.  Flowers just got finalized (after 5 botched proposals.  Bmaids have their dresses.  I need to finish ordering gifts for everyone.

My first dress fitting and bridal shower are this weekend.  I am registry stalking like no body’s business. 

Crazy Wedding Diet is also in full effect. 

My head is spinning.

I feel behind after reading this!  Invites are getting printed this week, and then sent out in mid to late July.

Wow. i feel VERY behind all you amazing women! My invites are still being printed and assembled (all by me!). I’m starting to panic and there is no one to help me! Gah! FI STILL hasn’t picked out a suit. The list of things to finish is hyper long and causing hyperventilation here!

@rabbit: Don’t worry, FI and his GM don’t have suits yet either. I’m trying to pretend to be calm about this since it’s “his job” and casually asking questions. It’s not like I can make the suits myself! He’s not going to show up naked (or at least I hope not), so I know he’ll pull something off, he always does. He also hasn’t met with the jeweler yet about my wedding band. *insert freak out here*

You guys are freaking me out.

I don’t even HAVE my invites from the designer yet!!!

Eeekkkk!!

Other than that HUGE task (the addressing and everything) I mainly have small details to work on.

First fitting is July 11th.

I have most things done, but I’m still feeling some serious anxiety over the seemingly growing list. I want it to be closer so I can do all those ‘last minute’ things – bake cookies, seating charts etc. 

My invites are out (went out forever ago – we have many many people travelling) and I’m still waiting on about half of the RSVP’s. I’ve been trying to make appointments with my caterer for the walk through of our venue but she’s cancelled twice. Hopefully Friday things finally pan out (or I might go crazy). First dress fitting is on July 19!

@Bakerella – I told my FI he was in charge of the suit thing too, but after months of postponing, I forced him to do it. Ha. So much for trying to be a relaxed bride!

Invites are done and will be in the mail after July 4th. They still need to be stuffed and stamped.

Need to schedule my first dress fitting

My newest task is trying to figure out how we’re going to do our donation favors.

We’ve got one reading to finalize and we’ll be meeting with our officant next month to figure out the ceremony

Also we need to schedule dance lessons. Other than that things are looking good. All the little details drive me nuts!

@toothfairyb: I completely agree that I”m ready to be closer to the last minute stuff!
