I’m trying not to freak out… its kiiiinda not working.  Every once in awhile I have a moment where I lose my mind, my heart races, my mind races even faster.  I have to figuratively talk myself off the ledge!  I really don’t have too much to do, I’m just going bananas hoping everything works out.  I keep replaying the worst case scenarios in my head! 

This is what I do have to do though:

Dress fitting(s)
Marriage license
Wrap all the gifts (a.k.a throw ’em in gift bags!)
Repaint gift box (cuz my darn cat thought maybe it was missing his touch.. so he peed on it)
Redip ring (its so dirty)
Buy flats
Seating chart
Write out placecards
Finish songs for DJ
Meet with or at least talk to via phone: officiant, photographer, videographer, DJ, florist, stylist and banquet manager
Assemble the box with all of the ceremony & reception things (cake cutter, champagne flutes, etc)
Pack for wedding (since its out of town)
Pack for honeymoon (so, buying clothes is also necessary)

Ok, so maybe I do kinda have a lot to do?  Ah!

OMG… I’ve been procrastinating so much lately! With a 1.5 year engagement, I got a lot done with the excitement of first getting engaged… then it died off and I put off doing a lot of things convincing myself “there’s tonnes of time”. Now I add about 5 more things to my To Do list every day. Just reading everyone else’s lists made me remember things I was forgetting!

24 DAYS!!!!!!!

I’m still working on my list. I’m going to check off one of the biggest wedding priorities tomorrow. The flowers. Calling to order them from Costco tomorrow. I can’t wait to have that out of the way. Now it’s just the details. I do still need to buy the wedding party gifts and such.

Book a limo, buy new foundation, figure out food/drinks/decorations for our afterparty, get engagement pics, work on the video for our afterparty (photo slideshow and funny interviews with Fiance and I), make my hairpins, sew the rip in mom’s garter that I’m wearing, get a joint bank account, figure out our car insurance, and get all the forms/letters ready that I’ll need to send out when my name changes.

Not too shabby!!

All I have to do is decide if I want to do a seating chart—the better part of me says yes, but everyone around me says it’s not necessary (we have about 50 guests at a small restaurant).  I also want to get a pretty brooch for my sister’s/MOH boquet (to double as Maid/Matron of Honor gift).  If we do a rehearsal dinner, it will be on a whim–with a total of about ten people, so it should be easy to find a place to eat :o) 

Oh, and I haven’t figured out if I even want a guest book.  I’ve been toying with the idea of postcards since we’re doing a mini-destination wedding in a tourist-y area (3 hours from where we live and our friends live, 6 hours from where my family lives, and 1 hour from where FI’s family lives), but I figure I can pick these up on the friday before the wedding and guests can write well-wishes and marrital advice on them.

Thats’ pretty much it.  Yay!! 15 days!
