Had my EEEEK 1 month to go moment yesturday, but today is hardly better since it is EEEEK one day less than a month to go.

Jewelry is my biggest dilemma right now, πŸ™  I have no accessories.

I also have nothing borrowed or old, which i thought would be easy to do for jewelry, turns out people don’t have jewelry I like.

My photog and florist are being unresponsive.  Grrrr.

And I wish people would just goddamn RSVP, and not just yes, but also with meal choice, apparently it is far too hard to know what they want to eat a month in advance.

Also hope my cake topper will come from a seller on etsy on time…

I am a big ‘ol ball of butterflies and excitement!  I can barely contain myself!  lol.  I have my 3rd fitting tonight, which I am very excited about.  Regarding what’s left to do, I have a bunch of little things – like finalizing apps and our late night snack, making signs for the photobooth, tables, etc, putting together our Out of Town bags, making our seating chart, etc.  The big things are all done, it’s just the little logistics that are left.  And because we are doing a semi-destination wedding (4 hours away) we have a TON to pack up and organize.  We are working on that this weekend as well as picking up all our alcohol.  Eeeek!

@chrispygal:

Right, I gotta make a seating chart too and print name lables, and print programs, forgot about that, and put thank you tags on favors that we’re getting the week before so lots to do still, but the only problem is i can’t do it yet as I am still waiting for things i need before I can do that, like RSVPs!

And Music!  We haven’t spoken to our dj at all.

Yay!

My dress came in and I had my first fitting – it fit perfectly! Now, I just need to find my shoes, for my first set of bridesmaids shoes to come in (to verify they are true to size – ordered my 2 locals shoes first, then I’ll order the 2 out of town ones), and get all these projects done!

In the next two weeks I need to finish getting RSVPs (due this past Monday… 21 still missing, 6 of those have extensions until the 10th), assign tables, print/assemble/attach escort cards to my starfish, drill 100 holes in mini pencils and program sticks, then assemble the programs (all corners are finished being rounded at least), make chocolate lollipops, make seaglass candy.. seriousl I’m probably forgetting something here.

I still need to find a tray for the starfish to go in at the door – I’ve got sand in the garage which I can use. Plus I need to find my card box still – I have a birdcage here, but it just doesn’t go with our wedding. Of course I saw a Dolphin box at Homegoods and Fiance wasn’t sure and now it’s gone – go figure. Got to just keep looking…. And I can’t forget about figuring out our music, and practicing dancing to the song we selected.

Now, to not go insane while I finish all of this.

At least I have another shower to look forward to and a ladies outing with my neighbors – it’s going to be so much fun!

Finish table numbers (have a friend helping me)

Finish escort card envelopes (another friend writing those)

Finalize menu

Make guest book

Finalize music

Make my family photo list

Seating chart

Engrave toasting glasses

@kventures: The license thing is a whole other monster in the state we’re getting married. There is a five day waiting period and we won’t have time for that so we have to go before a judge and get….a five day waiver! Undecided So annoying.

My checklist for the month:

  • Get the escort cards ready
  • Make sure Mr. Carrot gets his pants hemmed
  • Make sure the food is ordered
  • Finalize music

That’s it! Whew.

Getting closer my fellow Sept. 4thers!

I’ve got a few things left to do

-Final fitting for dress
-Shoes need to come in (I think they come in Tuesday!)
-FI needs to pick a freaking ring already
-Jewelry for myself
-Put together bathroom baskets
-Music choices
-Make lollipops for candy buffet
-Layout and label candy buffet
-Finish designing table numbers, print and assemble.

I had my two trays for my escort cards made (thanks to my awesome Dad), and they are sitting here now. We are working on escort cards this weekend (sitting on the table – still need to attach them to the starfish), but those should be done tonight!

Planning to take my thank you cards to work tomorrow and write those (have a shower today), so they will be done and out of the way as well!

I think all I have left to do is make the escort cards. No, really, that’s it! Well, okay, we still have to put our favors together and have my makeup trial, but both of those are happening just days before the wedding. I think I have more left to do to plan the honeymoon than prep the wedding!
