Yikes, I’m GETTING there!  We’re working on finalizing honeymoon plans, figuring out our favors (somethign I wish I had done earlier!) and wrapping up our paper products (escort cards, signage, program covers and menus).  Good luck to you!

I’m actually twenty days away, and I have lots to do. Yikes, I have to contact my MIA minister to review the ceremony, write my vows, get my centerpieces (potted herbs), have my second dress fitting on monday, get our marriage license, finalize the Rehearsal Dinner menu, purchase copius amounts of wine… and then some other loose odds and ends. Feel better anyone?

Oh my, it seems like there’s so much left to do!

Tomorrow I get to feed paper to the printer so we can get invitations in the mail on Saturday. Tommorow will also include a cutting-service run as well as the procurement of more address labels. And convincing the fella that he really wants to create the RSVP forms on our website like I asked him to do two weeks ago. >.>Saturday is second gown fitting and a trip to the tanning salon to learn how to fry my skin properly.Next week is order all of the munchie-type consumables and start figuring out drinks.And then there’s all the other little things that we have to figure out: Find someplace to get purple and blue string lights, make sure we have the space for the rehearsal, order my earrings, finish the photo list, finish crocheting flowers, put together favors once everything arrives, poke the fella about the rehearsal dinner, find an officiant since ours bailed (long story), rent table linens, figure out the timeline on the flower girls’ dresses, try to set up time for a boudoir photo session, prepare for the arrival of out-of-town guests…

It sure as heck isn’t easier the second time, heh.

Did I mention that I have a College Geometry final the day before my wedding? And we have to be moved out of our current apartment two weeks after the wedding? >.>

I have 43 days left but as fast as time is FLYING it will be a month before I know it.

I still have to get the boys their clothes, decide on a cupcake tower, order flowers, assemble the card box, paint the shepard hooks and assemble the mason jars to hang, finalize the music list and pick a first dance song, put the flip flops together with a tag, finalize schedule.

We are going to get our marriage license today!

I still have to figure out table numbers and make place cards. Oh and order a cake. That might be a good idea. EEK!

I have so much to do!

-Sign contract with DOC & get her up-to-speed

-Finalize ceremony plans

-Buy, borrow, or make loads of random little things (eco-fetti, place cards, etc.)

-Track down RSVP stragglers

-Make lots of documents (must-take list for photog, day of timeline, etc.)

-Organize the choral singers – we have about 20 friends from our choirs past & present singing for the wedding – but they need a dress code, rehearsal time, etc.
