I am August 27 too! I can’t believ it is only 19 days away now! I still feel like there is so much to do. We still have to finish making our seating chart and paying our bills 🙁
Plus our programs…
I had my final dress fitting yesterday and it felt surreal realizing just how close we are now! I am so looking forward to marrying my best friend 😀
Hope everyone is staying calm and enjoys the time leading up to our beautiful days!

Hi date twins!
Everyone seems to be at about the same stage as me. I still have to do the seating chart and our programs, as well as the escort cards, ring pillows and find gifts for my ring bearers (SO HARD!)
We just had our meeting with our Pastor last weekend. This evening I’m working on table numbers, and yesterday I finally found some shoes that I like. Oh and on Monday I picked up our marriage license! YAY!
I’m still worrying about the weather. I see thunderstorms heading our way at the end of the 14 day forecast….. Not good for our outdoor wedding

I can’t wait for it to get here already!
I still have the entire Out of Town bag process to do (can’t get started until I get there in a week), plus I haven’t exactly figured out a card box yet. I think it’ll end up being a hobby lobby no fuss one. Plus fun things like shopping for the honeymoon!

I still have things to do, no problem right, well our Officant cancelled yesterday.. shes having some emergency surgery.. ummm, i’m strangely calm about all of this! Breathing deeply

OMG! I would totally be having a panic attack! I admire you for staying so calm. Do you have a back up?
I picked up my dress this afternoon!!! 😀 The programs are done and I made the pillow portion of our ring pillows (just need to make the flowers – I’m doing that famous martha stewart pillow). I finally found gifts for my ring bearers… what else…. I managed to pick a perfume I want to wear.
The things I have left to do now are totally superficial and completely unecessary:
– Make Signs so people know which driveway (OK, this one is kind of important)
– Book a mani/pedi (i’ve never had a manicure, now’s as good a time as any right?)
– Get my brows waxed, and decide if I want to wax my legs & Bikini area… (never done that either)
– Finish the seating chart (This one is kind of important too I guess)
I think that’s it! I’m probably forgetting something though.
