I’m super excited/anxious/overwhelmed!  I can’t believe it’s less than a month away!  I don’t even know what’s on my list right now because I’m knee deep in candy from setting up my (practice) candy buffet!

The final countdown ladies!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!

I’ve been calm knowing we had a head start on major things, but the stress definitely kicked in at the 19 day mark. I actually had a mini meltdown tonight which I soothed with an almond hersheys bar, adele’s new album, and a beer lol. Anyhoodles, what’s left you ask? Hmm, here’s a few of the biggies:

– Our bartender just cancelled on us today, so we need a replacement! BOOOOO

– Purchase day of chones aka underwear

– Finish scanning photos for our slideshow

– Fill out place cards

– Book wedding night hotel

– Write Vows

– Final Dress Fitting/Pick up dress on Saturday

– Buy Booze / Bar Supplies

– Prepare instruction packet for our day of coordinator
