Getting married 2 weeks (and leaving town in 10 days) means I’ve spent the entire weekend sitting on the couch banging out final details. (Which is also why I’ve been on WB nonstop for the last 48 hours). I assemble a few more favors and check the boards, work on my photo list for a while and check the boards, I burn a few more CDs and check the boards, organize family photos and check the boards…
I have actually been a lurker for a long time and just recently started posting just to break the monotony of DIY crafting and what not. I’ve also been looking through the boards just to see if there’s anything I’ve forgotten to do. Anyways, just wanted to say hi and thanks for keeping me on task. I would never be able to sit at the table for 12 hours at a time doing wedding stuff without being able to take breaks and read about your own experiences!

I am also in the final countdown; got the last RSVP tonight, so I will be doing place cards and menus and seating charts next, then I will have to double and triple check everything.
My suggestion to you is to quit checking the lists on the boards. Every time I check them, I find something else that needs, or I at least think it needs, to be done. I am sure you have everything done that needs to be done and you will have a wonderful wedding 🙂

@noritake22: Congratulations to you too! Good advice about the lists. I promised my Fiance and my day of coordinator that I would not take on anymore projects. Its just finishing up my original crafts and trying to compile my giant list of things to pack. Usually I have something I tell myself to put on the list but will of course forget it. Looking through the boards will trigger my memory sometimes and onto the task list it goes!
We’re getting married about 90 minutes from where we currently live, but it would be such a hassle to forget something and have to come back for it once we get there. Thus, the 9 million lists of things to pack and double-check! I’m sure you relate.
We still have to work on seating chart and escort cards, but I’m going to wait until our final walkthrough with our reception venue next Saturday. We’re doing long family style tables so I need to figure out the configuration before I start charting things. I’m also *still* undecided on my escort card plan. (Perhaps I need to put up a poll!)
Tomorrow’s homework is printing our menu cards, finishing up our programs, putting thank you tags on our Out of Town bags, and putting labels on our CD favors. UGHHHH.
How big is your wedding? We have 64 total, so I don’t even feel like I can complain.

@Ginger123: We are having a small wedding too, so I shouldn’t complain either; 31 guests. My planner has also requested that I don’t take on any more projects. She is afraid that if I do any more, she won’t be able to get it set up and broken down in the time that we have.
We are also doing the long family style tables, and we are doing our final walk through on the 9th, so I will do the seating chart after that. I think I am going to take a camera this time, so I can have more of a visual of wher the tables will be. I did cracker favors for everyone, so I am going to put their names on those and use those for the place cards. I have a copy of the floor plan, so I will print out everyone’s names and then arrange them to get the seating chart. We won’t be doing the escort cards, since the guest list is so small.

Hooray for being almost there!
Hearing about brides who are getting things done makes me feel a little less intimidated.
