Constantly excited and looking froward to all the planning finally being over! 

We’re still working on our ceremony wording and trying to pick a few last dance songs. And I’ve got a big stack of escort cards to print, assemble, and emboss… and I think that’s finally the end of it? That can’t be right!

I think I’ve gotten through enough of my projects to finally move from stressed to excited!

I have a few favors to finish up, waiting to hear back from rehearsal dinner venue on menu, meeting with DJ tomorrow night, so we’re finalizing songs, and I need to email my officiant to confirm ceremony wording. 

Only four more days of work — then next week I have my hair/make-up trial — Thursday is crunch day when we’ll make the desserts for the sweets table and flowers are being delivered for the bouquets. Friday is pampering and venue set-up!

I can’t believe that my countdown clock is at 10 days…it seems like yesterday it was at 433!

Tonight we’re finishing any woodworking we have left: cornhole, directional signs, chair signs and I believe we’re starting on programs. We have the programs printed and cut but assembling them involves cutting burlap and a sewing machine. All of the other projects are little things that we’re hoping to finish up this week so next week we can clean the house (where the rehearsal and welcome party are), build our headboard (not wedding related but would like it done before the wedding), and relax!

I have broken out in hives from the stress. I am sooo ready for this to be over. I just want to be married and have it be THE day. Too many things to decide…I am flying to Georgia this weekend have SO many things to do up there that this work week is a waste. Not getting anything done. haha.

@Nini1985:  I see your wedding is in Hiawassee. My dad lives there!

@phoenixandstars:  I’m hoping our guest drama has settled but I don’t think we’re lucky enough for that to be the case!

I am not a Oct 12-14 bride, but I am a Oct 11th bride and have a bunch of stuff left to do.  We still have to BM a shirt and do some other shopping.  I need to do the place cards and TY notes.  I need to see if I can find some more hair/MU inspiration.  Do a playlist for the reception dinner on my ipod.  Modge podge a ring box.  And finally…PACK, PACK, PACK.  We are leaving for FL on Sat!!  Holy Crap!!
