Bit of an amusing story. I now despise our save the dates and have blamed it all on FI. I’m like dude polka dots, seriously?! WHY did you let me pick those?! Not only that but they were sent out with Christmas stamps on them bc thats all the post office had left. 😂😂😂 But I absolutely love the invites we chose and can’t wait to send these. Simple. If I hadnt been so sick of going through save the date options I would have used these for that too. 😋 Oh well. Also went to our park yesterday after work and fell in love all over again. So pretty. 😍 Hows everyone else coming along?

Less than 150 days now!

When is everyone sending out invites? FI was thinking we’d throw em in the mail on June 1. Which will be exactly 3 months prior to our RSVP deadline.

I had my hair & MU trial a few weeks ago. LOVED my makeup, but hated the hair. So I’m on the hunt for a new hair person. FI still doesnt have his outfit finalized (his BM wants to buy him a custom suit), and I haven’t gone shopping with my bridesmaid either. Still need to finalize music selections, and meet with the officiant in august.

whoami :  Wow! So early! We did alot of hand delivering for our STDs, it was easier and saved us some postage lol. Since we were going to see these people anyways it made sense.

How is everyone doing on their lists? I got a wave of excitement/nerves when the Knot told me we were 100 days out last week!

We still have to address and send out invitations, respond to the photographers (they sent a form to fill out with the who’s who and timeline for photos, something I appreciate since we aren’t having a bridal party and we both have complicated families), finalize the ceremony with the officiant, buy FI’s suit, order flowers to decorate the aisle and tables with, add another shuttle bus, plan our ceremony music, and plan the honeymoon. I also need to order a cake for us to cut, but am struggling with what size to get – it doesn’t need to feed everyone since we’re also having a big dessert buffet. We have most everything else organized already, except I need to set up a make up trial for when we visit to get our marriage license. And we have to order our favors when we have a head count…damn, the list is never ending!

For now I’ll just focus on the progress we have made recently, like ordering our rings and the linens for the reception, and starting workout routines. I’m down 5 lbs and FI is down 15!

I’m in chill mode. We switched venues to an all-inclusive, again for like the 4th time, but we both love it and its a major blessing to be so affordable. Got a different dress which I frickin LOVE way more than I ever thought was possible. Nothing really left to do except get a shot list together for the photographer and pick out invites. 😄 89 days to go per TheKnot!

I ordered invitations finally! I’m working on getting shuttle buses, and need to start looking for hair and makeup after that. I’m definitely forgetting some stuff but oh well.

LOl as soon as I hit send I remembered what I was forgetting. We still need to book our flights and a place to stay for the weekend for us (getting married in my hometown). But hey, that can wait, not like the bride and groom need to show up to the thing.

I’ve been getting our invites ready to go out next week. They’re simple with no inserts but I’m lining the envelopes and writing the addresses in calligraphy but they should be fine to go out on time.  I can’t believe we’re now at 101 days to go! I feel everything is good to go. I just have to book my hair but that will be done today.! I think once the invites go out I’ll have new things to panic about.
