@excitedtobeMRSF:  It will be here before we know it! I hope to have our invites sent out by the end of the week. We just have to confirm a few more details with our venue. In January we will finalize details with our officiant.

We still have lots to do though!

@excitedtobeMRSF:  Ours will be going out hopefully by the end of the week!  Just bought all the stamps today (and boy was it painful).

Invites went out a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to avoid the Christmas rush of postage. So far, we have been getting quite a few responses back and all Yes-es!.

FI is planning a date to go get the suits sized for the end of December. My first dress fitting, shower and hair and make up trial are all scheduled for the 2nd weekend of Jan, so that should be a fun weekend! So looking forward to seeing my dress again; it’s been too long!

I think Jan and Feb will be busy once the hustle and bustle of the holiday season dies down. Then it’s crunch time!!

UGH this has been a painful month. I finially finished making the wedding invitations (which I did by hand) and almost finished addressing the envelopes (I have four left). I am going to pick up stamps today, I started purchasing the groomsmens gifts and should be done doing that next month. Im not sure what I have left, I lost my wedding book in a move a few months ago and since then I’ve been a little lost. The free TK wedding planner app has been keeping me on tract though. My mom and I are having a disaggreement when wedding invitations should be sent out. My idea is the first week in January and hers is like mid February. I think thats too late for people who have to fly. I have a super DIY wedding so I stil have alot left to do but in the end I think it will work out. Its just the storage space which gets in the way. Cheers for the three month mark! 🙂

@skipanther:  Totally with you on the invites. If people are needing to travel and aren’t already aware, mid-Feb is way too late! From what I understand, the norm is 2 months, which puts it at the beginning of Feb. BTW Date Twins! We are still in the process of making invites and intending to get them out next week.

We also sent out our invites before Christmas, to allow for an earlier RSVP date (mid-Jan, seems short but our planner advised so we can round up people if necessary).  Also glad to hear other people getting trials done ect, I thought I might be late scheduling them mid-January.  I’m also in the process of figuring out readings/ ceremony music – am I behind on that?

Expecting BM dresses in early Feb, and groomsmen have suits.  Need to sort out gifts though! EEK

I have waves of excitement, I can’t believe it’s almost here!!

I’m having a “holy shit” moment right now. I feel like I have so much done, but I still need to pick out Tuxes for the guys (FI purchased his own last weekend), pick out gifts for the girls and guys, book a limo, and meet with all of my vendors (catering hall, DJ, florist). just thinking about all i have to do is freaking me out. FI is a part time law student so his time is limited too which doesn’t make it any easier. i just keep telling myself to take deep breathes and get as much done as early as possible so i’m not scrambling at the last minute.

@futuremrsmendez:  We did send them out super early, but almost my entire side is travelling across country so wanted everyone to have a reminder of all the info (STDs went out 10 months ago) and get our RSVPs in early.  Oh…and I’m super A-type! haha

We’re sending ours out in a couple of weeks I’m guessing.  My mum has been super anal about them so it’s taken longer.  But she & dad are paying so I just had to work with them and in the end they’ve turned out really great.  But I’m talking 20 texts back and forth just to fix the wording and things like formatting when all I was doing was trying to get the basics right to save our stationer the hassle of the same thing! haha.  Painful process.  But I’m kinda stressing because people have been making comments – joking I think but comments nonetheless – about them and asking family on both sides about our registry.  I want to get them out asap now!

I sent my invites out yesterday..

I had my hair and make up trial in December and it went really well. All the little things are creeping up on me now and I am starting to freak out!
