The major things on our list to get done are: Groomsmen’s suits (2 still have not arrived and they all need hemming), Groom’s suit (which he is pruchasing in our home town), My first dress fitting (also in our home town), Bridesmaids dress alterations, Make the place cards for meal selections at the reception, Find shoes for me, Find a reception dress, Find some lingerie as well as a new strapless for under my gown, Purchase all last minute essentials and makeup for day of, Get my mani/pedi done, Get my hair cut and colored, and a couple other loose ends.
We just recently had all of our payments finalized and we picked up our marriage licence yesterday! We also got our gifts for the GMs/BMs all put together last week and our airline tickets to Mexico arrived 🙂
Not too much left to do. My main goal is staying calm right now and preparing myself. I’ve been going to the gym and yoga every week, started to tan a little, and I’m also whitening my teeth and moisturizing like crazy!
Good luck ladies 🙂 We are almost there!!

Today is our RSVP deadline. We only got one more and have to make a bunch of calls. Which is not a problem, I figured that would be the case. But I was more than happy that we hadn’t gotton any “and guest” from people who weren’t invited with a guest. That would have been a first on the Bee, right?
So, of course today’s RSVP reads “John Smith and guest”. I tell Fiance, who then casually mentions “Yeah, Joe Schmoe is bringing a guest, too. I’ll figure out something.” What? Joe Schmoe hasn’t even sent his card back, just called FI. Why on earth did FI not mention this to me earlier, e.g. while I was working on the guest tracker list?
Luckily, we don’t meet the venue’s minimum guest count and can accomodate a few more that we have to pay for anyway. But why do those guys think we want to entertain their random flavor of the week at our wedding?

5 weeks from today!
I am about to head down to the antique store down the street, to pick out a hat, his cufflinks, and maybe a necklace and/or earrings.
I still have to decide whether I can afford to get hair/makeup done, we need our wedding license, his shoes, some “bride” and “groom” signs for the back of our bikes, and shoes for him. A quick lawyer visit for the prenup, then we’re done!! Yeehaw! Oh- and I suppose vows are a good idea, lol!

The whole calling the non-rsvp ers is the BANE OF MY EXISTENCE. I HATE it. I called one of my college friends yesterday and her excuse? “OH! I just found your invitation yesterday! Sorry I cant go on such short notice!” Oh really? did you miss the save the date I sent 6 MONTHS ago too? FRIENDSHIP OVER. ugh.
I still need to pick out my favors!! im so stuck on these 🙁
I also would like to get cufflinks for Fiance.
