Oh, geesh, I have so much stuff to do, I don’t even know where to begin.  Had the day off from work today, so I knocked out a bunch of my table runners that I’ve been procrastinating on (9 down, 5 to go).  Programs are going to take awhile, since I’m doing them with my Cricut, but considering we don’t even have an officent yet (I MAY have one after this weekend- talked to one of my friends who is licensed and he said that schedule pending he’d love to do it, but will have to meet up with him to discuss details) need to hold off on that until we discuss what we’re even doing for the ceremony.  Plus at this point I have no clue on how many people are coming (we invited 87, have gotten 13 “yes” and 3 “no” so far) so I don’t want to waste my time and money over-doing something when in reality we’re probably not going to have many people attend our wedding =( 

Other DIY projects that I need to do before the big day: Tissue paper pomanders (going to order the tissue paper online tonight), menus (we need to finalize what we’re even eating before that can happen), escort cards, signs, table numbers… I know I have more that I’ve signed up for, but can’t remember at the moment.

Holy crap!! It’s coming SO freaking fast. I am at that point where I just wish the day was here already. My shower is Saturday & I’m SO excited!! I feel like I have a gajillion things to finish…programs, centerpieces, paying off a few more vendors, start buying the alcohol, table names, start on seating arrangements, meet w/ our dj & harpist again & meet w/ our pastor on Monday!! AAHH!! We haven’t received RSVP’s in 2 days πŸ™ So I truly hope there’s something in the mailbox for me tomorrow. We’re up to 12 yes/2 no. We need that number to hit @ or under 160 :-/

And to think, a year ago I was blissfully unaware…pppfff

wow. I didn’t realize how close my Future Sister-In-Law wedding is. It seems she has been running around like a chicken with her head cut off, but for good reason!

Hey Bees!

What a relief it is to hear about all of your “To Do” lists. I just booked our officiant last Monday and still have a few other details I have yet to check off my own list.

I can totally relate to the sleepless nights you girls mentioned. I had a terrible wedding related nightmare the other night and woke up in a panic. 

I know the actual day will turn out beautifully, and it will go by SO fast, that I am trying to really savor the planning process just as much as the wedding day itself.

@ForeverYoung: You’ve already got 40 RSVP’s back?  I’m jealous.  My invitations have almost been out for a month now (they went out on August 2nd- wanted to get them out a bit early since I never did formal “Save the Dates”, but just told people via word of mouth, and a facebook invite) and so far I’ve gotten a grand total of 2 “proper” RSVPs- so far we only have 13 people attendending, and a good chunk of that includes our wedding party and immediate family.  It’s really heartbreaking, since we’ve gotten a couple of ‘no’s from people we really wanted to be there, including one of my FI’s family who is a wedding planner, and even though she’s know about our wedding for 9 months now, has decided not to come because she working a wedding the night before.  Rather irked that the weddings of strangers are more important then the wedding of a family member. 

Gotten another 2 table runners done today.  I’ve had this project since May, and I’ve cranked out more in the past two days then I did in the past 3 months.
