My boss said this to me yesterday, and holy crap…it suddenly became real. 🙂
Bring on the next 12 days of insanity! Despite being totally stressed out about the 8 million little DIY things left to do, I am really, really getting excited!!!
All you August girls, let’s do this thing. 🙂

I know!! me too! Although my boss didn’t say this to me. We’re in the 14 day forecast now (mainly sunny for me!)
I feel like I haven’t got much to do – which is stressing me out, making me think that I’m forgetting things.
what do you all have left to do? i’ve got to:
-make my pew markers
-make guestbook signs
-print my wedding madlibs
-hair trial tomorrow night (hopefully repair the drama that occured last week…ugh)
-hear back from my DJ ( getting a WEE bit nervous about this…)
-give the addresses of my witnesses to Dept. of Justice
-finish my vows
-make a seating chart

Oh man, I don’t know if I want to start the list…it may never end. 🙂 We are diy’ing a ton, including the music, so yeah…there’s a lot left to do.
– Finish seating chart
– Finish all the music playlists (big job!)
– Escort cards and make chocolate covered pretzel rod favors.
– Fold paper napkins and poof the paper flowers that go on them
– Finish the freaking tissue paper pomanders (those things are the bain of my existence, I swear.)
– Table signs and general signage.
– Finish cutting burlap table runners.
– Figure out if I’m doing my own makeup or not.
– Ribbon on our cupcake stand.
– Put ribbons on the vases and pick wildflowers a couple days ahead of time.
– Program fans (if there’s time at the end)
– CLEAN THE HOUSE! 😉
I know there’s a ton more I’m forgetting, but my awesome cousin is coming in on Monday night to help, so between all of us, we’ll get stuff cranked out.
I finished up my photobook guestbook on Monday, so that was a huge thing to get off my plate.

I am so glad we decided to leave for our honeymoon a few days after the wedding. If I had to be worrying about that too, I would really be going insane!
