I have officially reached the point in the planning process where I have complete wedding brain – I live weddings, dream weddings, eat weddings, go to the gym for my wedding… I am really looking forward to the big day and the honeymoon (oh, man, the honeymoon – I can’t wait to do nothing but sit on a beach and ponder my next cocktail), but I am also at the point where my mind is moving a million miles on minute on all sorts of wedding details and I have to remind myself to take deep breaths. :o)
So, ladies, I ask you today – what’s on your mind? On your to-do list? What are you excited about? What are you stressing about? How are things going generally?

Hi Date twin 🙂
I keep running through things in my mind too. I think I’ve got everything under control but I feel like there should be more to do lol. I keep making lists. Thankfully we are keeping it very small and simple so I can stay some what calm. I’m so excited to just get married and go on our honeymoon and continue on with our lives 🙂 I’m going for my trial hair and make-up friday which is exciting but I can’t make a decision on what I want to do lol.

Things are coming together finally. I’m done with my stupid bubbles (what a waste of time!!!) and moving onto designing my tags for the favours, pashminas, and flip flops. I have to go buy the paper for my programs, menus and escort cards. I feel pretty pulled together at this point. We figured out what we’re getting for my parents, but not for FMIL….. First fitting is next week. Hanging out with Jillian Michaels a lot to get ready for that 😉
I’m finally starting to see what it’s all going to look like. My major stressor is lighting the tent and getting something hung over the dance floor. But even that I feel like it’ll come together. Oh and we’re supposed to be borrowing all our china, glassware and silverware from a friend’s banquet hall and I have a gut instinct that it’s going to fall through, so I’ve put FI in charge of sorting that out this week so I can book everything from our rental company instead.

I’m good today, excited that RSVP’s are going to start rolling in (sadly didn’t get any yesterday – boo!) soon. I got my timeline almost completed yesterday and am going to run it through my DOC soon to get her take on it.
Something I am worried about is the centerpieces – I’ve done two trials thus far and still don’t have anything that I LOVE. Hopefully within the next week or so I’ll get it figured out.

I am SO excited that we are getting our envelopes in the mail today from our calligrapher, and we can send out the invitations sometime this week! Woo hoo! And then I get to start stalking the mailbox for RSVPs 🙂 Another thing on my mind is that my mom (who is planning my bridal shower) keeps asking me random questions like my fave candy as a child. I’m interested to see what she’s putting together, lol.

I’m freaking out! So many little things to do and I’m planning my wedding from afar. I’ve been freaking out so much that I was up at 4:00 in the morning making a “to-do” list of all the little things that were keeping me awake!! My dress has still not come in despite ordering last Thanksgiving (they have promised me that it should arrive by ending of the week, but still!). So many little details still to figure out. yikes!

there are many things i would like to DIY for the wedding, but i just can’t seem to start or, even if i did start, complete. not that i’m lazy, it’s just that i’m really not sure whether they would fit for the theme that i want. i wish i have one set of EVERYTHING so that i can try out the placements and check the fit..

i am kind of freaking out….
the RSVP due date is friday and we only have like 20% response. Looks like im gonna have to start calling folks.
the vases i have ordered from various vendors (and one private person here on the bee) have had various problems (one was broken upon delivery, and the one from the bee hasnt arrived yet and its been 2 weeks im starting to freak out that she just took my $!)
my mom is going slightly crazy and its really pissing me off.
i am not losing the weight i would like, but whatever, next dress fitting is also friday.
I am sick of being broke…
i cant concentrate on work…
and i am counting down the days til i can put this whole wedding crap behind me, be a married woman, enjoy my honeymoon and have my life back.
i should have eloped.

@spaganya – I hear you I’m feeling the same way. If we knew then what we know now things would be so easier : )

Hmm…I’m beginning to think I’m too chill about everything lol. Our main thing right now is worrying about numbers….particularly coming up short. Our venue has a 175 minimum and right now, with the responses we have gotten, if everyone else left to respond says yes, we’re still only at 167…so we’re trying to think of who else we want to invite – either way we pay for 175 so we want 175 people lol. Other than that there’s a ton of things to do…but I have a week off in the beginning of August between jobs so I guess that time has chilled me out some 🙂

as far as wedding, i’m not too worried… the only major thing left is picking out fi’s ring at the end of august/first week in sept and “week of” activities.

CAN’T WAIT FOR OUR HONEYMOON!

I am like you, I cannot stop thinking, talking, eating, sleeping weddings.
My invitations are out and i am so thrilled about all of the compliments we have been getting on them. That stress was worth it…Now comes the RSVP’s. Too many people have been “telling” me they are coming. You need to send them back people!
I have a dress fitting tonight at 5:30. Last night I pigged out and drank way too many beers. So, this should be interesting. I needed the stress relief though.
My shower is in 2 weeks and I have a whole slew of projects I lined up for this weekend. One includes finishing table numbers.
Family members are becoming more supportive as we get closer. I think everyone is excited now and less stressed.
I am also sick of being broke and spending all my extra $ on ETSY.
