  • Wedding: October 2014

Soonerbee07:  Yeeeees I will join you on the moving items from the “to-do” list over to the “f^@k- it” list! I am sooo over the planning stuff, the details and mostly the CHASING EVERYONE DOWN. I am sick of reminding bridesmaids about picking up their dresses (yeah 2 of the 5 are still sitting at the shop and I am 23 days out), sick of asking the no-RSVPers if they are or are not coming etc. Just ready for the day to be here and to be married. 

My hair trial isn’t until next weekend and my final fitting isn’t until a week before the wedding so until then I am mostly just trying to do all my “confirming” of things and get everyone paid off.

I am definitely at the “I don’t care point” but getting some vendors to communicate is a challenge. I still haven’t solidifed the A/V situation with our DJ (dining and dancing are in two different rooms). We will get there though!

I am still a few month away… January but honestly I am already Over the planning… I had soooo  many big grand plans…. Sparkler exit…. Bathroom baskets…. fancy decorations etc… And you no i just don’t want to give myself any more jobs to do… I was starting to feel so stressed out and have just decided to just cut back and do the main things that are important. For the most part I am super organized… And I figure the only person who will notice these things are not there will be me. Bring it on I say just want wedding day here already and then honeymoon! Lucky you only have a month ago.

Soonerbee07:  23 days to go! I’m at the point where I’m constantly freaking, but there’s nothing I can really do. It’s all minutae at this point and my brain is fried, so I’ve just been warning people that I have the memory and attention span of a goldfish at this point haha. I’m also getting really excited, too – we’ve been engaged for 2 years and neither of us can believe it’s finally happening!

I have 37 days to go, and have reached that as well… we just want everyone to have a good time celebrating with us, so details are not what I am worrying about. However, we met with our reception venue on Monday and found out that we might not be able to get into the place to decorate the night before… so, now I’m freaking out about how that’s going to get done since I will have no time to help with that the morning of.

I do like that more things are being checked off, and that it’s mainly the super little things left. I look at my list every day after work and make a game plan in my head on how I can get this or that done now versus later.

I’m trying to balance that plus trying to get back to my normal weeks of workouts after work… and there is always something. I have another fitting on Monday, and if that’s good… maybe one more right before the wedding. I’d like to lose 5lbs. before then, but it won’t effect the fit of the dress much – just make it fit a little better. BUT, I’ve been tryng to lose tehse 5lbs. for the last 6 months and nothing. Wedding stress? I think so… I gain when I stress, and not lose like many. So.. that is also my worry.

I feel so calm about the entire thing, yet everyone else around me seem to be the ones freaking out. I just want to yell at everyone “just chill the eff out!”. We are now 22 days out.

My dress is sitting in the closet, we pick up my dad and FI suits on the 15th…the wedding and reception are being handled by the venue/restaurant so I don’t have to worry about decorations. Things are pretty much done and I am worried I am not worried enough. I am one of those brides who is caring more about the married part than the party 🙂 I can’t wait!

Hahaha oh my goodness. You are at practically a month out and she is freaking out over the fact you have not selected sandwiches? I honestly have not been stressed out except for when we were looking for venues – I just wanted that done. I’m quite happy that things are where they are – and thankful because both mine and FI’s work got very hectic. I’m just ready for the day and to party

22 days to go!

I’m starting to get really nervous. I just hope everything comes together and looks NICE and cohesive. It’s so hard to imagine what everything will look like since venders are usually booked seperatly. Ugh… 

I still need to finalize programs and get them printed, flow of ceremony, seating chart, get a final count, mini-centerpieces for other rooms in venue, find earrings, final fittings.   Ick.. 

 

Good luck to all the other October brides!

I’m nervous but not stressed… just wish the little details would like to sort themselves out now, I’m so over planning!! haha

We need to sort loads of little bits, church programmes, maps, etc to be printed, dress fittings to go to, checking shoes with bridesmaids etc etc. but we will get there 🙂
