Rexcraft just sent me an email reminder saying 1 1/2 months till I do!
According to Rexcraft these are the things I should be working on:
• Write your reception toasts — and don’t forget to order
beautiful toasting flutes!….got flutes, no toast
• Work on reception seating arrangement….done
• Prepare place cards…to do
• Plan the rehearsal dinner and mail invitations…to do
• Get your marriage license…to do
• Rehearse your wedding hairstyle…to do
• Have final fittings for your wedding gowns…to do
• Order your wedding programs if you haven’t done so…planned the program just to print.
How are my other Jan brides doing with their to dos?

Yey! We are so close! I am meeting with my cateer again during Thanksgiving. I need to work on my programs. My wedding planning is doing the seating chart. I am still debating about toasting flutes. My wedding planner has some that we can borrow, but I am in love with Swavorski’s toasting flutes. I know that I can’t afford them, but I still love them.

I can’t believe we are finally getting so close!!! My dress will be coming in within the next week or 2 then I will order my veil and shoes as well; invites are mailed and starting to come back; songs are all getting figured out; programs are planned just need to price out and print; marriage license; signage for candy table/memorial table/guest table/ect need to be printed; slideshow (my dad is putting together); guest book put together; “faux-to” booth things put together … plus who knows what other little things will come up, but it’s all little stuff 🙂 SOO excited!

Yep, the countdown is really getting closer to reality for me. I’m moving out of my apartment this week, getting my car checked up to be shipped overseas and my last day of work is Dec. 17. So, it’s all happening faster and faster…. exciting!

@cj_one2000: and @aribari: FH will be moving in on Dec. 18. He has to be out of his apartment by Dec. 31 and we are leaving for Christmas and the wedding around the 22nd! I can’t wait! We will go order our bedroom furniture this week too!
The only bad thing is that we are missing about 100 RSVPs! We mailed over 260 and we only have about 100. Most people feel that we should know that they are coming. Out of all of the people that have RSVPed we have over 300 guest coming as of today and 6 not coming.

It will all come together…. sometimes i wish that i didn’t (or hadn’t) had all the time in the world… sometimes i find myself looking for projects or that next item on the list to tackle. Your next few weeks will be a blur, but you will get it done. Let me know if you want any suggestions or ideas that you can steal.
were you able to get a dress off the rack?
Post # 15
@doingitright: yes, i am getting my dress off the rack. i tried on THE ONE here in Anaheim, and they were going to sell me their broken sample for $1400+. i actually found a salon in northern cali that was selling the same dress, new with tags, for half the amount! waiting for it in the mail 🙂
we are eloping, no guests. i just have to put down the deposit with the coordinator and we are set for our location, photos, and minister. and then, i have to schedule appointments for hair and makeup, and get the marriage license. go buy the rings with Fiance, purchase headband, jewelry, and shoes, and oh yeah, the alterations!!!!! not in this order, but i got three weeks to do it all! 🙁 i’m happy, but i’m pulling my hair out and wondering if i can even budget all this right……………
