I still need to get the following: -soda -wine -to make me seating chart – meet with my wedding coordinator since she is going our catering now too – get the marriage license – print out newsletters (I’m almost done making them) -put together welcome bags – finish mason jar tags (I made all of them last week and I just have to attach 50 more) – give DJ our music I think that is all for the moment!

I have almost everything done.

I’m working on a few more DIY projects – this weekends projects are bunting banners and chalkboards.

I finally think I got my hair situation figured out! Yay! And the only things we need to purchase are soda and that is it! Woo!

Since we’re having so many family members from out of town coming in for the wedding, we’ve decided to host a picnic at our house the day after the ceremony.  Now, I’ve got more stuff to plan for…but it’ll be fun Laughing

16 more days to go, Bees!!!!

Family started arriving this weekend.  It’s been great having everyone here and spending time together before the big day!  The majority of our out-of-town guests are coming in on Wed. & Thurs.  I’m just glad my mom is finally here so we can do a few last-minute wedding things together.  We had to do most of our mother/daughter wedding stuff online or via web-cam on my phone because she lives so far away.  We’re going to go buy a garter to toss, a guest book, a card-box and go pick up our thank-you notes.

4 more days and counting, Bees!!!

Made the final payment for the reception, so we’re all set.  Picking up the tuxes tonight.  Need to drop off the card box & guest book at the hotel so they can get it set up for us.  (We’re having the ceremony & reception at the hotel)

Most of our out of town guests have arrived.  A few are coming in tomorrow.  I’ve been getting about 4 hours of sleep each night this week!!!

Can’t wait until Friday….day after tomorrow Laughing

Had our first snafu yesterday.  We went to the tux shop to pick up the tuxes and they lost my son’s tux!!!  He’s walking me down the aisle!!!!  The sales people were so blasé about it.  They were saying “oh well, we might have it here by Friday”.  I’m getting MARRIED on Friday!!!!!  So, I said that wouldn’t work because I have no way of getting my son over to the tux place since we’ve got a full schedule the day of the wedding.  Then they offered 50% of the price of the tux as a refund.  I don’t want a refund!  I want my son to have a tux!!!

So, after a lot of phone calls…they said they found a tux for him that matches the others.  It’s supposed to be here this evening.  I’m hoping beyond hope that it’s the right one, in the right size.  I kept joking yesterday “don’t make me go bridezilla on you”.  It’s a fine line between laughter & freaking out…LOL

Tomorrow’s the day, Bees!!!

OMG that’s terrible!  Our wedding is the 11th, so the guys will start picking up tuxes tonight.  I’m a little worried because I’ve heard such horror stories about tux rentals, but our rental place has their warehouse about 5 minutes away from the store, so hopefully if something goes wrong they can quickly get a new tux.  

I realy hope the new tux for your son works out!  Stay positive, you are almost there!! Good luck on Friday!
