Ihear you! Your friend just FOUND the invitation yesterday? I’m sure you sent it on time, so how is this short notice?
We STILL have past deadline RSVPs coming in. One guest is somewhere in FL for his job and Future Mother-In-Law tells me to assume he is coming, just because “I would be very surprised if he didn’t come!” Then yesterday we get a “No” who filled it out in the “Yes” line, and the person(s) didn’t tell us who they are.

- Wedding: April 2011 - The Tribute Golf Club
Yay for being so close to April weddings!
Still left to do: Out of Town Boxes, Chocolate favors, confirm those coming to the rehearsal dinner, get our marriage license (only good for 30 days in Texas), drop off our cake topper and pay the balance on the cake, pay off the venue (I’m holding off on this one until April because I have a feeling there may be a “yes” guest that actually won’t be able to come).

Arrgggghh stressing out because people who have sent in yes are now backing out. Mind you I have finished the seating chart and almost done with the place cards. At least they let me know now. We hired babysitters based on people telling us 8 months ago when we sent out RSVP that they will be bringing kids. Now we only have one kid our nephew who really doesn’t need a babysitter. I doubt we can get our deposit back.
I am pretty much done. all I have left is to tie fabric on the Marmalade we made as favors, cut out the runners, and finish the places cards. All this should be done by this weekend and we will be good to go. We are mailing all the DIY stuff to Cali starting this weekend. 3 weeks of no wedding stuff to do will be great for once.

I’m so sick of the people who haven’t RSVP’d telling us they have to wait until they find out if they have this job they applied for, or if they can get off. Stop trying to make this convenient for you. I swear, the next time I get married, I’m going to court house. lol
No one but us brides seem to understand the importance of the having the final guest number. My florist is waiting on the final count so she knows how many centerpieces she will needs, my baker needs to know how much cake to back, everyone needs the final number and I have to FORCE Fiance to call his friends/family to find out when they are sending in the card. They think it’s acceptable to tell us over they phone if they are coming and how many will be coming. Umm HELLO???? I PAID for that RSVP card and I PAID for that stamp you see in the right hand corner. Are you seriously that F***ing lazy to get a pen, write your name, if you are coming and how many?
I just bought my hair extensions and false eyelashes today, waiting on my guestbook to come in, zazzle ONE AGAIN screwed up my menu cards, going to see my Maid/Matron of Honor Friday to finish the card box and order the table numbers.

@xshellx2003 I think every job I’ve ever started I already had a prior scheduled appt or function coming up… I always let them know in the interview the projected dates coming up and they were always fine with letting me off….. I’ve NEVER bought that excuse “gotta wait to hear” b/c really if you do your part professionally it’s not usually an issue. You should tell your friends that… lol 😉
And just breath ladies…. we STILL have time… sorta lol

Ah! I am getting married in 10, yes TEN freaking days!! I still have to:
- find a makeup artist (INSERT SCREAM HERE) my mac girl backed out!
- make table numbers
- make all signage for all days
- figure out the weather, bc as of now weather.com, NOA, and 2 local channels all say different temperatures (varies by 10-20 degrees each) I have an outdoor under the tent wedding!
- type up order of events
- finalize all rentals
- finish my brooch bouquet (INSERT SCREAM HERE, bc its not turning out right, so I think I might just give up and order a regular bouquet =( )
- Complete payments for all things, like food, photobooth, DJ, Photographer.
Good thing is, Friday is my last day at work, and I am taking vacation for the next week so I can run around like crazy and get stuff down before wedding events start on Thursday! Good luck ladies!
