ME ME ME!! Are you getting nervous yet?? I have a tendency to worry all the time about everything and things that dont matter so I have been freaking out already.. My family thinks I’m insane for worrying about someone breaking into my house with the sole purpose of stealing my marriage license or all the bazillion other things I find myself worrying about! LOL!! I’m almost done with all my plans though! 🙂

 

On another note… My wedding is at 6 pm so at this present minute there are 25 days 22 hours and 49 minutes until time for me to walk down the aisle! 🙂

I totally have an app widget thingy on my phone screen counting down for me. When people ask me how long I tell them down to the minute!

OMG! Me and my soon to be hubby also met online so I totally know how ya feel!

I’m more nervous about all things that could possibly go wrong. I havent even thought about the dance stuff yet. I try to block that out of my mind.

For me I knew I wanted a “Christmas Theme.” And with my work schedule I cant take off any time after December 14th so that left only 2 weekends and to prevent having to take off to much time AND having the wedding the same day as the SEC football championship, I went with the 8th! Me and my soon to be are HUGE football fans!

I am like a Christmas junkie so I’ve had more ideas than I’ve had time or resources. In the church we will have kissing balls hanging from the pews and luminaries along the floor. I’m also gonna have a huge christmas tree in front of us. I want more christmas lights but I cant figure out where would look good. I’m having frosted vases with poinsettas and candles as my centerpieces. I even made me some table runner out of christmas cards. I’ve having a hot chocolate bar and we are giving hot chocolate as favors and a christmas ornament with our wedding date on them. I feel like theres more but my mind is mush and I cant think of anything else right now. HA!

 

What kind of things are you doing?

There should be more of us. I don’t check the December board too often but now that we are 3 weeks away, I guess I should start. 

Paid off the cake lady, DJ, photographer and videographer today. That was almost $4000 gone in a split second. All we have left is the photo booth guy and the venue. Waiting on my fiancé to do that. Need to get the marriage license and finish listing the music for the DJ. Did the seat chart yesterday (holy shit that was hard). We still don’t have some RSVPs in but my venue has a minimum, so we are giving them the minimum number and paying for extra people the day off if we go over. That was another reason why the seating chart was hard. Some people still haven’t RSVPed and we have 10 seated tables. Why must people make this so difficult for us?

I usually keep pretty quiet around here, but its getting hard to do so. I’m finally getting the “holy shit” this is happening feeling. We’ve had some rough patches but things are coming together. We got our marriage licence the other day. Finished the playlist for the DJ. Finally tracked down the last of the RSVP’s. In the process of figuring out this seating chart thing. No idea how its gonna go yet. Bought all the final decor for the candy buffet. It’s freaking awesome! Have my final fitting on the 25th. Limo and hotel are booked. Engagement photos done. That was something I had been putting off out of fear. All accessories are bought but need a new veil. Got scammed on etsy. fricken people. Need to make an emergancy kit. Gotta do bathroom baskets still. Hall need’s final numbers. Meeting the officiant this sun to finalize ceremony. Still need to have hair and makeup trials. 

it’s just the last of the little details. I’m super excited to see it all the friday before at the rehersal. I’ve dreamt of a winter wonderland wedding my whole life and its finally happening.

We have 4 foot  crystal tree’s for centerpieces that look like they’ve been frozen in ice. Love it!

I hope everyones having fun!!!

I’m having a Justice of the Peace ceremony on the 9th. It’ll be no frills, probably in a park somewhere. Our “real” wedding is June 16th.

OMG! Yall are so on the ball withe everything. I feel like such a slacker! I still have to get gifts and my FI’s shirt and my corset. Monday I plan on getting our marriage licenses and our rings will be ordered this weekend ( dealer guaranteed they will be here end of next week). I still have to make programs and do our music list for the reception and I still have to make the cd for the church. OMG soooo much to do. Starting to freak out a little bit. I cant believe how fast time has been flying by and I feel like I havent accomplished anything! Although on a plus I’m finishing up the decorations this weekend at work and my dress will be finished and ready for pickup next week.

 

I feel you on the not being a bridezilla thing. I totally told my sisters when I got engaged and started planning if I turned bridezilla to slap me and make me come to my senses. I have one moment when it was about the time to send out the invitations when I didnt have all the address(future in laws fault). But after I had my “melt-down” I felt ok. I may have to turn “psycho” again if I havent got the last of the RSVPs next week. ITS SOOOO ANNOYING! I spent like a month worrying about invitations and these people dont even have enough respect to check a box on a card and put it in the mail! Drives me insane.

 

See I feel myself getting tense again! LOL
