How are things going with you so far, how are you feeling? I’m stressed out. I’m kind of tired of planning but at a recent meeting w/the venue I was told I still have to figure out x, y, z. Bah, lol so more planning. Thankfully a good chunk of what they need from me will be handled when we go to our tasting on the 22nd. And Brendan will be there for that so he’ll get to help me figure out all this stuff. I’m worried about mailing invitations out (the goal is to have them out by the end of July, RSVP is due September 7th). We recently had a death in the family and there is some concern over how to handle the wedding now. I don’t think anyone would want us to postpone it. I dunno, I’m kinda confused about the whole situation and I think everyone is just stressed out and emotionally drained after the death of my FI’s grandma. =( We all miss her.
Right now, my fiance is in Australia on a business trip and he facebook messaged me asking me to call Verizon to activate his international roaming. I can’t remember our password 🙁 so now I’m up worried about him and hoping that he’ll message me soon. I’m ready for bed, lol. And I miss him. And, wow, I’m ramballing now lol.
How is Fiance, family and friends? FI is fine — just away on a business trip. I think it’s starting to hit him that we have 5 billion things to do and he was on the ball with scheduling stuff…and then work sent him to Australia. So, when he gets back we need to shop for rings, find a cake, do our tasting, he needs to pick a tux….(honestly, does the list ever end?).
Scale between 1-10 (1 for behind and 10 for done) how far do you feel in the planning process and why? I’d say I feel like we’re at a 6 or 7. Venue is paid minus the addition of chairs for the outside ceremony. We still need to finalize our menu with them and decide if we’re going to toast w/something special or just use the bar for toasting. Um, we need a cake. We need wedding bands and I really need to talk to the florist again and actually sign something. Most big things are done. My dress should be in soon, bridesmaid dresses have been here a long time now, flower girl dresses & sashes are in and I have them….basically he needs a tux/pick out what groomsmen will wear. All the girls will be dressed, lol. No shoes though yet =P. I dunno we still have a lot of finalizing to figure out and the little stuff adds up to big stuff it seems. *anxiety attack*
What did you accomplish last month?
Met with the new lady at my venue and discussed details.
Went to a cake tasting and ruled out cake flavors. Decided if we were going with this bakery we’d do a red velvet cake but I don’t think this will be our bakery.
Sent info to bridesmaids for my bridal shower
Finished some DIY projects
Got mason jars for the floral arrangements
Bought bridesmaid & flower girl gifts
Oh, yes and my groom’s wedding present and something for my Future Father-In-Law.
Started some DIY projects. If I had a printer that wasn’t sucking the life out of me O_O………stupid thing died…. *grumbles* the projects I’ve started would be done, lol.
Set up our rehearsal time w/our officiant and venue
Thought about rehearsal dinner some but after the time we can do the rehearsal was booked….I’m kinda nixing the idea currently. MOH won’t be here for rehearsal and I don’t think we should do a dinner without her necessarily. + it’s an added cost that’s not necessarily a huge deal. I dunno — it’s something we’ve been thinking about. Meh lol
Took things off registry/added some things
Booked hotel in Hawaii thanks to my best friend’s mama who let us use her timeshare <3 / paid the remaining balance that it didn’t cover
Err…there’s more. I was on a roll essentially.
What are you trying to accomplish this month?
Address and mail invites
Finish DIY projects — maybe my sister’s printer will work. O_O it bettterrrr
Print engagement photos and stick them in the frames we’ve bought already
At least look for rings — we need to like buy them now. Hopefully when he gets back we can go look at the place he got my ring from. Nothing we’ve seen in other stores has looked right.
Book honeymoon flight (hotel is already booked)
Decide on what kind of a toast we wanna do
Pay for ceremony chairs
Talk to the florist again
etc. I’m tired but the list is longer. There’s still quite a bit to do.
