Date twin!

That’s basically about all I have left too. I need my garter, the guestbook, and I also need to finalize my music!

I’ve got a running list – programs, buy the rest of the liquor, write thank you notes to go with our wedding party gifts, still need to buy gifts for our wedding coordinators as a thank you, need to finish a wreath I am making for above the fireplace at the reception, work on the day of schedule and be sure I have all the correct payment amounts and dates written out, I need something old still, Need to finish my thank you gift for my parents, I need name plates for our rehearsal dinner, Need to make my nail appointment, Find a pet sitter for our honeymoon as well as figure out when I can cancel paper and mail for our honeymoon. 

 

Wasn’t until this weekend that I got the feeling of “ok, I’m over this – let’s just be married already”.  40 days to go! I can’t believe how close we are ladies!

Decorate Card Box, make music decisions, finalize dessert order with bakery, finalize welcome cocktail details and book a pet sitter.  In addition to all of those tangible things, I plan to check and recheck with all of our vendors and such to make sure that everything is on board.  Things are getting so close, I’m so glad that I did all of my crafting projects early on – I don’t know if I could focus at this point.

In two weeks from now, we are having our food tasting, meeting with our officiant and I’m having my hair trial…all in one day.  I know I’ll be so burnt out, but we are planning this from 6 hours away so we need to fit lots of things into a short time frame whenever we are in the area.  I have my shower the following morning as well…gah! 

We are at about 42% response rate right now with RSVP’s…deadline isn’t until April 1 and the anticipation is driving me insane!

Date twin!  I’m getting married in Louisiana too!

My list: Wedding programs, guest book, table runners, votive candles, wedding jewelry, garter, food signs, picking music for ceremony and reception, and buying a reception dress.  I feel like my list is pretty manageable, but I can hardly concentrate at work!

Well I have alot to do!  Or at least it feels like it. 

I am on a small budget so I have a lot of DIY projects.

To finish:  Programs, dj music list, centerpieces, tissuepaper bouquets and boutineers, arch pompanders, sew table runners, put together flatware wraps, gifts for about 4 more people. 

That is what I can think of off the top of my head.  I am planning on organizing tonight.

Good Luck Everyone.
