OMG – TOTALLY with you on this one.  I made a list last week (49 days out) and freaked and Fiance thought I was nuts.  Now I’m 6 weeks (42 days!!!) and somehow calmer about it?  Although, I highlighted a couple of things on the list for Fiance to help with (he’s currently unemployed so he’s volunteered to assist) and after seeing the list he actually freaked and started volunteering to help MORE.  I think hell is freezing over.  What kind of stuff do you have left?  I still need to do programs, placecards, table numbers, favors, and more….UGH! TOO MUCH!

@speulie :  Your list looks SO MUCH like my list.  This weekend I’m: finalizing my ceremony music & readings, booking all of my pre-wedding salon appts (nails, eyebrows, etc), booking the honeymoon hotels, booking the limo, summarizing my vendor payments & drafting a timeline.  I figure once I finalize the ceremony details I can order the programs, menus, place cards & thank you notes to match, all at once.  And I totally forgot about a pen for the guestbook.  NICE!

@sbbridebythesea: We found a really nice pen at target in the regular pen aisle. It’s silver and has a design at the bottom that at first glance looks like rhinestones. I’m pretty sure no one would guess it was only $2.50!

*glances around*  I overplan.  To the point that I bought a terracotta pot, a candle, miniature paper bags, and a photo mat yesterday.  Because we’ll have citronella candles at our outdoor wedding, and I found citronella votives online…  so I thought they’d look cute in terracotta pots.  And shouldn’t those pots be painted?  But what if the paint doesn’t do well with a candle?  So I bought a little terracotta pot, painted it navy blue and peach (going to leave the rim terracotta), and burned a little votive in it – works.  The bags are for table favors – want to do little bags of flower seeds, but I wasn’t able to find cheap bags online.  These were 99 cents for 25.  Will try to figure out what sort of label to put on them.  The photo mat (for “framed” drawings in the centerpieces) will establish the size of drawings, and whether I can make an appropriate stand for a mat.  I also got the materials for my and my bridesmaid’s jewelry – I made mine yesterday.  All so I can make a to-do list as I am engaged.

I’m not even properly engaged.  What is wrong with me???
