OMG… all we did was move this weekend!!!  So I guess the most wedding-related thing I can say that we did is moved all of our wedding stuff into one room of the new house (there is still a box of decor that FI put somewhere and I’m like “you need to find it and put it in the wedding room as soon as you can”).  I told FI that once we are done moving, we can’t do ANY projects to the new house, we need to focus on doing wedding stuff!

In a perfect wedding world, this weekend we would have cleaned out all of our glass terrariums for our centerpieces, and FI would have gone to the greenhouse we are sourcing stuff from and started actually putting the centerpieces together.  Sigh.

I had my hen do (which was fab!) and booked our wedding night hotel (which was pretty stressful actually).

NOTHING! lol – it was my last weekend to relax so I did just that. I cleaned my house and organized and watch a lot of the Office.

I guess ‘nothing’ isn’t totally honest. I worked on the music list a little and my sissy came over on Sunday and we cut dowels for the table numbers. To be fair though, we spent twenty minutes doing that and then the rest of the afternoon drinking wine and dancing in my kitchen … lol

My ‘hen-do’ or Bach party is this coming weekend!

I put together my bridesmaids gifts since everything finally got here. Oh, and had our bachelor/bachelorette party on Saturday.

We went to a friend’s wedding this weekend!  It was crazy awesome, and a nice break (although not really, still thought about our wedding the whole time).  We don’t have a free weekend until after the honeymoon at this point, 2 more weddings to go until ours!  Also chatted with my momma and MOH a bit about various details, but nothing concrete was finished.

 @Glasgowbound:  Congrats!  That is so exciting!

Ugh, I didn’t do shit.  We went to a music festival and just had fun, which was great, but aghh so much to do!  I did get close to arranging our shuttles, finalize some details with the caterer, and follow up on some RSVPs.

@Glasgowbound:  Oh wow, congrats!! 😀

I finished my cardbox, made a final list of everything that needed to be done, met with the lady making our ketubah, and final coat of paint on the table numbers.  And emailed our photographer to set up a time to meet.

I did a few minor things – mostly trying to finish up the final guest count. But right now I’m am watching FI slave away writing thank-you notes for his ‘man-shower’. Lol he is having such a difficult time.

I didnt get too much done wedding related. FI had his bachelor party so I went to NJ to see my family and some friends. It was relaxing and spent some time working on my Bridal Tan. But now since we took the last 2 weekends off (my party was the weekend before) we have alot to get done.

This weekend we have to finish the cake base and tie sting on our programs which is turning out to be a nightmare. And then of of course our printer died so we just ordered a new one and hopefully I can finish printing our escort cards next weekend. And FI has to work on all our wooden signs. Plus the most important two things, are get our marriage license and pack for the HM. Cannot believe we only have 18 days!!!

I honestly didn’t do very much even though I still have SO much to do.. . .Bought the wine for the tables, finally bought my shoes, went to my alterations appointment, wrapped my bridesmaid gifts, and went over to the venue to get a visual of everything.

Still need to remove wine labels, buy and deliver cake topper and cake accessories to bakery, finish bathroom baskets, add ribbon to chair signs, make a card box, make more hanging pom poms (the space I want to cover is larger than I thought), finish ceremony jars, get marriage license, buy gifts for flower girls and parents, add lace to candle jars, finalize day of timeline, come up with playlists for cocktail hour and dinner–and add them to my ipod, purchase any materials I will need for hanging decorations, decorate arch, and ask FI to purchase his groomsman gifts so I can wrap them nicely.

Do I have enough time?!?!?! 🙂
