I can’t believe I’m down to 3 months! I feel like I’m finally starting to get everything in order and figure out exactly what I need to do and by when. I just figured out over the weekend that I have every weekend booked between now and my wedding. Yikes! I get overwhelmed with it, but overall I am really excited!! Next on the list for me is printing and sending invitations and starting my DIY projects!

My invitations will be going out next week if everything goes as planned – and I can’t wait!!  They have been, by far, the biggest and most stressful wedding-related project thus far.  If I could do it all over again, I would NOT have DYId them!  Oh well…

Once we get them in the mail, we just have small details to take care of:  Continue collecting things for centerpieces, finalizing ceremony, making a ring pillow, etc.  Phew!

Frantically trying to get my invitations together… I never knew it would be so involved!! To line the envelopes or not line, how to seal the envelopes, how to word things, oh gosh I ran out of paper and the craft store closes in 20 minutes, do I want regular postage stamps or custom, etc etc.

Sorry, slightly frazzled.

Also trying to get my behind to the gym. That is not going well 😛

Like many of you, I’m working on the invitations.  I sent the out of state and country ones this morning.  My cute little invites will cost $0.81 just because of a stupid bow on them.  Can you believe them?  LOL  Anywho, the rest will be going out next week…but I don’t like the idea of sending them out around 4th of July though. 

Besides that, I need to finish up adding ribbon to our fans (ceremony outside…will be hot).  I’ve purchased the favors (olive oil bottles), will add the olive oil a few weeks before the wedding.  I’m waiting patiently to hear that my dress has come in.  Even though, I have 2 months, it makes me nervous that it hasn’t come in yet.  Since I’m on summer vacation (I’m a teacher), I’m worried about eating too much or gaining more weight.  So I decided sign up with a trainer this week. 

On top of all of that, I need to go apartment hunting early next week in San Diego for my FI and me.   And lastly getting ready for my FH’s homecoming after a 6 month deployment.

 Boy, I sure feel good letting all of that out. Thanks!!

I’m hoping to get my invitations out next week too. I was a little worried about the July 4th date, but I don’t want to send them the week after!

Favors are done, decorations for the ceremony are done, and mostly for the reception. Need to finish OOT bags and some paper signs, etc. for the reception.  Other than that, feeling good!

I just picked up my invitations from the calligrapher today! They are so beautiful! My handwriting sucks beyond belief so this was they way to do it and I am so glad that I did.

I just picked up my wedding dress! It’s too big! I haven’t dieted or exercised anymore than I normally do! I hope that my alterations turn out well.

I finished my favors last weekend.

I bought the ring bearer’s pillow and flower girl basket.

Oh–I think most of it is done. It’s just little details that I can drive myself batty with but I guess it’s okay. 

I hate my shoes. Now that I have my dress, I need new ones. I feel stupid to waste money on the ones I bought. I hate that feeling. Yucky.

Yeah. I’m happy. One more hotel to book for the honeymoon in Peru. 

It’s all coming along!

I’m going to address my invites this weekend and mail them the first week of July.  I got lots of little things to do like get ceremony decorations, put together the menu cards/table numbers, spray paint bird cage, book rental car for honeymoon, get jewelry for wedding day, help my mom find some shoes, go for hair and makeup trial, go for 2nd fitting, etc.

The little details are driving me crazy!

Definately starting to freak out… We are getting the invitations ready, will probably mail them mid-July.  We have started working on some of the diy favors and oot gift bags.  On the low side though…We don’t have a rehearsal dinner location or guest list and have none of our key reception songs picked.  I haven’t had my dress altered or bought any hair accessories/jewelry..

I am also working on my invitations. I hope to have them in the mail in about a week or so. I’m also trying to figure out what to do for flowers and centerpieces. We have got to get my fiance a suit and get our wedding bands. Other than that, we are sitting pretty good.

our invite lady said to send them the end of July for 9-12.  It is freaking me out that some of you already sent yours out.
