Okay oh my goodness. This is my first official post. Yay me! Lol
I’m going crazy, with only 32 days left and so much still to do!
I’m wondering what everyone else has left on their to do list?!
My to do list is the following: (overload)
Finish Bouquets (I have re-done them 3 times now, can’t get them right!!)
Send final payments to vendors
Paint my centerpiece items (frame and candle stick)
Finished flower girl #1 dress, still need to do #2 though
Purchase all alcohol (ugh)
Check on RSVPs (ones who have not responded, there is a lot 🙁 )
Make some signs
My dress is stilllll a little too long! Ugh! so that needs to be fixed
Pick first dance songs… I am making future hubby do this! lol
I know there is more, I’m just so stressed I can’t even have an organized list! instead I have like multiple different ones!
I’m hoping I’m not the only one, and also hoping for any tips from anyone else??
Alright Ladies your turn!!!

– Finally decide on ring engraving and then get FI’s ring sized (he’s been sized, they just need to actually do the work to fit it – luckily our jeweler is a saint!)

@Kelsikay: I don’t know for sure if etiquette rules you give tips at the actual wedding, or if mailing them after the fact is okay. I am going to give mine out the night of the wedding, because we are having a destination wedding, and it just seemed easier to me to give them out then and not have to worry about them afterwards.

@SpringDaisy5: ah okay, I think I want to include personal notes with ours so maybe I will just wait and mail as planned. I don’t want to worry about that durring the wedding 🙂
omg reading all of your lists just reminds me of things that I have yet to do and are not even on my list!! lol which is good and bad at the same time I suppose!
This weekend will def need to be a productive one!!
I jumped the gun last night with my RSVPs…. I was getting impatient…I said please respond by May 1st, but I had only received like 15 of the 105 I sent out so I started follow up with everyone already via Facebook, oh well!!! It is stressing me out!!!
I probably should have not done such a DIY wedding but made everything cheaper and to my likings lol but is leaving me with soooo much to day, especially since we live in Cali and our wedding is in Utah (we recently moved from Utah) so I have NO ONE here to help me, I have assigned a few tasks to bridesmaids but other than that it’s all me. ugh. 🙁
Well good luck to all you brides!!
Oh and where are you all getting married? I kinda just started posting and reading posts and what not, needed some encouragement, I had no idea there were so many of you with May 26th too that’s so awesome!!
