Me! I’m at the slash and burn phase. Father/daughter dance? Out, because neither of us cares that much and I can’t find a decent song. I wonder what’s next on the chopping block.

But it’s also a weird spot, because like you said, we’re all “hurry up and wait” because I can’t do anything until more guest numbers come in. I did print up the escort cards already (but with my small dinner, doing it ahead of time isn’t a huge deal because I’ll only have to toss a couple if some people don’t make it) so I’ve been putting my little gems on the cornes as dinner selections come in.

First I love the birdlet part of your name.  My mom has a little love bird that we call birdlet.  I also call my dogs doglets.

I am not freaking out yet.  I have a wedding to go to in 2 weeks and I think I will be freaking out after that.  I do have an entire weekend of wedding related things to do to prepare for the last push.  My little sister (one of my moh’s) is coming over to help me finish tying ribbons on my favor boxes… a serious pain in the ass.

I have the programs designed but until I know how many people are coming I am not doing anything with them.  I will get them printed later.  Same with the Table numbers and seating cards.

I’m at the point where I just DON’T CARE about the wedding…I just want to get married. Pretty much everything is planned and most stuff is done but if it’s not then it’s not really the end of the world.

I still have a few weeks to finish up projects but I can’t wait till I’m out of time to worry about or stress about the little details. 🙂 Then I don’t have to think about it anymore.

Yep – I know what you mean. 64 days and counting. While I’ve gotten a lot of stuff already taken care of, there is still a lot more to do!

@Ms. Caniche: We JUST had a convo about it too. He was worried that wedding planning was taking precedence over the actual marriage. But in all honesty I’d marry him tomorrow at the courthouse if it weren’t for the fact that I know our families want to be there and they’re really excited. So I’m going to make it special for them and for us.

@Amarus: Yeah! We’ll be done sooner than the rest! 🙂 Haha.

Ummmmm Yeah!! Super stressed here….just found out that I need to cut my guestlist after I already sent the STDs to them (luckily I wasn’t planning on sending invites till next week!  Arghhhhhh!  Now how am I supposed to go about cutting 15 people just to be sure we are safe and under 100?

@locket: Do you have some +1s that you can eliminate? Have only those who are engaged/long term relationship and the married bring their SO. Then if, after the RSVPs come in, you can tell those folks that you had to cut down that now have room for them to bring a guest (if you do).

Me!! I just got started back with planning because of health issues (I’m better now but way behind).

I still need to send invites, pick out all the music, write and design the programs, assemble favors, make decorations, send a photo list to the photographer, test out the sound system, and a ton of other little details I am sure I’m forgetting. Oh, and I haven’t done any dress fittings. We also have to go buy all the food for the reception the week before the wedding.

Whew! I can’t believe how close it is.

@pennednpapered:  I think I still have to do everything on your list, along with a few other things!  We don’t have a DJ yet, and I don’t know what our day of timeline is going to look like.  We have yet to meet the minister (he is my mothers cousin, but I haven’t seen him in over a decade & FI has never met him).  Our invites aren’t even printed yet.

I’m somewhere between being too laid back & chill to actually care, and going absolutely bonkers.

I wasn’t freaking out until I read that everyone else was freaking out, LOL! Should I be more stressed?! I’m more stressed that it’s been too hot to work out lately than anything else. I’m plowing through everything else slowly. I’m mad at myself for getting so wrapped up in decorating the stupid bubble containers, I should have made them SO much simpler but I didn’t, and now I’m freaking stuck with them (gone too far!). Ah well. They’re nearly done. What’s that’s over with I can move onto the escort cards, etc. I pretty much have all the stationery designed, I just have to finalize and print it, run it through the Cricut.

sigh. Back to bubbles.
