I have my comprehensive exams for my PhD in a week (written exam) and a week and a half after theat the oral exam and so that has taken over my brain!

The 2 months thing is scary but I have to get past one obstacle before I can move onto my never-ending list of to do’s.

The things that I have to get down during this week because my fitting is 2 days after the written exam is finish my DIY veil (just have to glue it on to the comb properly) and finish my DIY hot pink crinoline.

Really I am soooo stressed I am just taking it one day at a time!

Well I’m an 8.14.10 bride and I still have five million things to do.  It’s like getting one thing done actually adds stuff to do.  Yes.  I’m so overwhelmed I’m starting to procrastinate.  Oh well…even if I totally mess up the name cards or forget the chair covers, we’ll still be married in the end, right?

Another one here!

My days and nights are completely immersed in our to-do list.

It WILL get done, girls 🙂

I’m just trying to take it one day at a time. Everything that we have left to do is the “extra” type of stuff. If it gets finished, cool, if not, life and the wedding will go on. Just try to do one thing each day, and your to-do list will dissapear quickly!

Umm yeah! BIG TIME brain a-spload over here! This weekend I went nuts and went through all my contracts and papers to make sure I had all my deadlines and tasks planned out in my appointment book.  I started freaking out last week, which is what prompted that.

I feel like we have alot to do for the ceremony.  We had out first meeting with the church liturgist on Saturday where she gave us a worksheet and a book to read and told us all the stuff we need to choose.

Today I am feeling anxious for sure.

I keep feeling like I am forgetting something.  And since FI isn’t really doing any planning that makes me freak out more because I feel like if something doesn’t happen it is MY FAULT.

I go through the weddingwire and knot’s checklists to make sure everything is getting done. 

Another thing stressing me out is the RD.  FMIL still hasn’t planned any of it and that makes me anxious.  She is so wishy washy.  Every time I talk to her about it she says “Oh, we’ll figure it out.  We just have to figure it out.” GAH!!!!!

I am refusing to acknowledge the date so that way I don’t have a panick attack. I feel like I have so much to do not just with my wedding but our house that we are moving into when we come back from the honeymoon. I feel like I’m so behind, I’m hoping to finish my invites and send them out tonight because I am starting to get phone calls asking where they are.

Every time I think about all of the things I still have to do i feel like vomiting. It doesn’t help that I pour over this website all day looking at everyones awesome little details and big plans. Waaaaaay too much thought and not nearly enough action happening. ::sigh::

I’m a week later (08.28), but beginning to feel the heat. The only real issue I’m stressing about right now are the invites, which are not done yet – and some older relatives are starting to seriously &^#$% to my mom about “where is my invite!!!???” They have already made hotel and airplane reservations, they know where everything is taking place – so damn, what’s the worry????!!!! You’ll get your invitation!

The main issue with the invitations is that I thought (stupidly), that I could print up the RSVP inserts myself – big FAIL. So, I have had to go back to my printer, who I hope will have them done this week. I also need to buy RSVP envelopes (oops, just remembered that right now), and postage.

I haven’t had any fittings for my dress – but I did make the appointments. Still need to pick out songs for the DJ, decide if we are hiring or firing the pretty flaky jazz band (for cocktail hour), and need to make up all my DIY paper goods: place-cards, table numbers, menu cards, etc.

Oh, and I need to either order some flowers from 50flowers, or go to a flower shop and order my bouquet. A million other little things.

Rawr.
