…and I don’t know whether to scream or cry. I planned very carefully so how did I end up with this to do list. I mean we still haven’t finalized our ceremony (we’re meeting with our officient the day before!). My FI and my dad keep saying ‘oh you’re doing it great’ ‘it’s coming together with no problems’ and I could seriously drop kick them. I am so exhausted that I’m not really sure if I’m looking foward to my wedding or just looking forward to it being over with.

What kinds of things are on the to-do list?

Rhopalocera: We’re mainly down to the ceremony and the music. We’re doing an iPod wedding, all the music is ordered and loaded, but it’s down to the final troubleshooting. I’m also plodding toward finishing the day of timeline and who does what. There’s this thing with my dad and a photo that calls for a special camera, but it doesn’t…that’s just a saga that won’t end and just seems to suck time. The rest of the stuff is mainly night before and day of stuff.
Several months ago I had arranged to go the day before the wedding and have a long massage, it’s my treat to myself. I think that is the best investment ever! I can’t wait to ‘offically’ begin the wedding fun.

I can definitely see why you’re frazzled. Luckily, you’re almost at the finish line. People usually say that all of the work was worth it, and I suspect that’s how it will be in your case.
I was going to suggest a massage, so I’m glad you already thought of that and have that set up lol.
Oh, and I hope the camera thing with your dad gets worked out sooner rather than later.

renwoman: Ohh, is your dad the one who wants a photo with you guys but insists it is done with this complicated camera ’cause that’s what he used decades ago? Still planning to accommodate that?
Beyond that stress, it does sound like things are under control. If there are things that need to be done night before and day of, there’s no use stressing over them now when they can’t be done yet.
Music and timeline isn’t too bad–Arrange your timeline how you’d ideally like to have it and then see where your dad’s photo can fit in the mix and do some adjusting. Not sure what troubleshooting you need to do for the playlist but iPods/speakers are usually pretty straightforward so I have faith in you!

- Wedding: July 2014 - Prague
Honestly it doesn’t sound like you have much left! Take a break from it for half a day. You’re in a stress cycle!

spiffanee: Yep that’s my dad. He has now completely washed his hands of the whole thing. However my FI who put a lot of work into arranging it (and has wanted to rent one for awhile anyway) is very frustrated. The whole thing was resolved that since my FI put all the work in and still wants to do it anyway, it’s his wedding too so if he still wants to do it then okay. I understand his frustration and if this is what he wants and it’s important to him then I’m not going to say no.
The music problem might have been resolved by our officient who knows someone who does MCing for special events. We might be able to hire him to do the MCing and run the iPod at significantly less than a DJ. We just have to see if our venue will allow an additional vendor two days before the wedding (fingers crossed!).
So things are cautiously optimistic…

Hey we used Wedding Dj app which just dj’s for you basically. We only did it for ceremony and canapes but it would run the whole night for you
