9 months, omg!!  Time really does fly!  The past month or two kind of lagged, so I think this month I’ll have to up the projects…

  • send out save the dates – may postpone, not sure yet
  • design escort cards
  • design table numbers
  • design programs
  • continue collecting glass jars/terrariums
  • come up with design for bridal party ties, friend is screenprinting them at home so want to give them ample time to experiment

pretty ambitious, we’ll see haha…

Bleh. I don’t even know. It’s too cold here to paint my centerpieces, since I procrastinated. I could make the bracelet I want to wear (with pink ribbon):

I can’t even think of anything else. Maybe sit down with Fiance and go over cupcake flavors? Decide if I want to do a seating chart, or leave everyone to their own devices? Ugh.

This month we will:

  • find a florist (hopefully)
  • close on our house

and quite frankly, if we manage this without any disasters, I’ll be happy.

@vorpalette:  Those are so cool I just might “borrow” that idea for my bridesmaids!

We need to pick a caterer this month, it got overwhelming making any decisions after the hurricane so we are putting it off. Both final quotes we got are really good and we like them both, so we might end up flipping a coin or something. 


1. continue to gather centerpiece stuff

2. figure out officiant

3. start addressing christmas cards (doubling as save the dates)

I haven’t done much lately!  My list is:

– book the rehearsal dinner location

– book the caterer – we’ve all but finalized that already

– design the save-the-date postcards

– collect addresses with the help of my mom and fiance’s mom

– get the postcards made and sent out by the end of November

Ugh, I feel like I have gotten nothing done!  We have a caterer tasting next week, but seriously need to commit and pick one someday.  And I NEED to try on more dresses.  And get my Maid/Matron of Honor to try some on too!  Yikes.  It’s feeling awfully overwhelming right now!

@vermontbride13:  Hmm, good point!  Not sure.  I had just figured I’d send them like a regular postcard… They won’t be very formal, so even if they get a little beat up, it wouldn’t be too weird.  That’s a good thing to think about though.
