    I still need to make wedding programs (biggest stress now), make final payments (for some things), meet with the florist and finalize the flowers, finalize basically everything with vendors, get the fiancé new shoes, get the rest of my RSVPs, pick up my dress, finish thank yous from my showers, and whatever else I’m forgetting!!!!

    I’m done with everything that can be done, now I’m just waiting for the week before so I can bake our favors, sweet n salty buffet items and wrap my bouquets.

    2 more dress fittings, write out escort cards, hair/makeup trial (happening Saturday), FI has to buy a few more groomsmen gifts and that’s IT! It feels great to have so little left to do.

    I have a bunch of details here and there to tie up, but I’m less worried about them than I am about my ZERO productivity at work :/  The last 2 weeks have been awful… I still managed to squeeze by and make a deadline, but I still have a ton of things to get done before I’m off and all I can think about is wedding stuff. ACK.

    Pick up and pay for marriage license.

    Figure out how and where to get dress steamed.

    Finalize wedding ceremony. This is FH’s job. He is doing it college style: work on 10% of it for 90% of the time and then finish the 90% on 10% of the time before the due date which is supposed to be today for my approval and to be sent off to the officiant.

    Get the list of wedding group shots with everyone’s names for each group. I am micromanaging this a bit, but I want to get it all done.

    Get a rehearsal dress together.

    Buy gifts for parents, FSIL who is playing the music, and my sisters.

    Let’s see…I’ve just got little loose ends to tie up, really.  I have to finish assembling my paper flower and brooch bouquet (it seriously won’t take me long at all, I’ve just been putting it off for some reason), attach my DIY veil to the comb (again, very easy), my mom has to put the finishing touches on my niece’s flower girl dress, sending over the final headcount and menu selections to the caterer today, finalize our chair rental details for the reception, still have to figure out jewelry for my BM’s..this detail has me a bit hung up bc I can’t find exactly what I’m looking for >.< ..the graphic designer at my office has agreed to design my programs for me, so I’ll just have to assemble those but that’s no biggie – I can do that one evening over a glass or 2 of wine πŸ˜‰ I’ve also got to get my nails done the week of the wedding and pick up my dress and I think we’re all set!  Deep breaths ladies!  We’re at the homestretch now πŸ™‚

    I’m still painting my centerpieces (gonna take awhile but I hope to be done by Thurs), have to purchase the alcohol and some food for the wedding this weekend. I have finally paid off all the vendors today (except the officiant which I pay on the day of). I’m still tying up a few loose ends. Having trouble with my WP (I’m so damn sick of her, I wish I never hired her) but I’m trying to work it out so she doesn’t decide to pull out but after the wedding, I may be taking her to small claims court. Found a makeup artist at the mall but I’m trying to get her to come to the venue to do our makeup instead of going to the mall and getting it done since all my BP including me has very oily skin. I just have to speak with her about that…. Whew, time has flew by and before we know it, it’s going to be the day of!!!

    @kris325:  Hey there date twin! πŸ˜‰ What cruise are you guys going on?  We’re doing one too…it would be crazy business if, not only did we get married on the same day, but went on the same cruise haha!  Hope you’ve checked a few of your to-do’s off that list this weekend!
