Wow – is anyone else amazed at how quickly time flies after you pass that 100 days mark?
We have our invitations stuffed and stamped and ready to go (mailing them right after July 4). I just printed the dinner cards yesterday and am off to find pretty things to designate dinner selections. I have my guest “book” ready to go (it’s a photo mat, and I just created the sign asking people to sign it and bought pens). And the family wedding photos are almost complete (just checking to see if we can get a wedding picture of one last set of grandparents). Met with our photographer 2 weeks ago to go over our itinerary. And we’re finalizing our DJ worksheet.
My first fitting is July 10 (along with my bachelorette party). And I had my first shower this past weekend (still amazed by everyone’s generosity) – and the thank you cards should be in their mail boxes today.
Now I’m working on organizing the wedding room into boxes that correspond to where everything goes (gift table, guest book table, centerpieces, etc.) so it’s easier for my DOC to set everything up.
I’m still feeling panicked, but in reality everything is pretty much done. Crazy bride brain!

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.

I just read this, as I am Oct 1st, and at 100 days today…made me have a little bout of anxiety when you mentioned how fast things go after the 100 day mark…hee hee!

@Mermaid1082: ditto with crazy wedding diet as well *munching on carrots and mainlining my 5th glass of water today*

I am feeling extra crazy since my first fitting is this weekend.

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! Fiance STILL hasn’t picked out a suit. The list of things to finish is hyper long and causing hyperventilation here!

@rabbit: Take a deep breath! If you start to feel (even more) panicked tell FH to stop watching the Brewers and start stuffing envelopes! (that’s what I did).
And if it really gets down to the wire, I’ll meet you in Oconomowoc to help out 🙂

You guys are freaking me out.
I don’t even HAVE my invites from the designer yet!!!
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 Fiance 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!
