We are having our reception at our house so today I moved things out of our dog’s room so we can rip out the carpet. My Fiance replaced the boards on our deck yesterday my dad’s help and today my dad powerwashed it and the house while my sister and her boyfriend trimmed our shrubs. So thankful for all the help but we still have a ways to go! Getting rid of trash, staining the deck, cleaning the house, ordering the food, meeting with our photog, finishing my alterations… yup. Gonna be a busy month!

 @anglang25: what have you got going on?

@anglang25: I have to confirm with the bakery and florist. Fun stuff I tell you! I am debating about doing favors or not. It may be a last minute addition. What are you doing for favors?

I went to a wedding on Friday and practically had a panic attack before she walked down the aisle. Fiance suggested I take a few shots before our 9am ceremony so I don’t leave him at the altar πŸ˜‰

Well it is 24 days as of today, my is time flying and my how life will change for me. It will be a rough turning point to say the least but once the turn has been made I am sure it will be fantastic!!!!! I have small details to feather out. Like I still need to order mah flowers from 50 flowers.com or sams club not sure which I will end up with. I have to make final payments. and get the drinking glasses for reception. Debating on flowers girl sash (to have one or not) And jewerly is still up in the air. I have the pieces but they dont match…hey misstatas and anglang! Can you wear mismatched pieces of jewrely like for example a sterling silver bracelet made out of hearts that are all connected, with tear drop crystal earings with no pendant in the middle and a necklace(don’t have necklace yet, I didnt think iwas going to have one, but I want one now hehe).

I have to move out and get prepared for school in the fall immediately following the honeymoon. Oh and transfering locations at my work since it will be closer to move  from present work location to  the location closer to the new area that I will be moving to. phew, so hectic,  I cannot wait till its over and I can rest, but I will wait since mom is very sad to move a state away from me  in the end of august. I will miss her as she greatly misses me ;(

@bLISSFLbRDE: I think mismatched jewelry is fine. If you can share picture that would help greatly!

I am meeting with my seamstress tomorrow and our photog on Friday. I still need to find shoes and a bra. EEK!

@bLISSFLbRDE: I think it’s okay to wear mismatched jewelry — Im doing the same! Im wearing my engagement ring (white gold) and just a simple pair of pearl/diamond earrings in gold. I considered dipping them in white gold but decided against it to cross out one more cost and hassle.

I think I have it the worst — no Maid/Matron of Honor gown yet, no wedding bands, no final guest list!

Im picking up my gown late July but the fit was great during my last fitting.

Right now I’m trying to make sure my girls get their dresses altered, but come next week I’m going to have A LOT more work. My RSVP deadline is this Friday so after that I’ll be following up with the stragglers (right now we’re still waiting on about 80 people!), and then once I have a final count I’ll need to follow up with the venue, florist, linen rental co, chair rental co, etc with the exact count of everything and of course do the dreaded seating chart. My mom and I have already had a fight over where ONE person is going to sit so that should be fun.

But my biggest focus/stress is trying to lose that last little bit of weight before the wedding. I don’t need to lose weight but I want to tighten up. I got to a good place before my bachelorette party, but then I kind of pigged out for a month. I was so disappointed in what I looked like in the pics taken at my shower and I don’t want to look like that for the wedding.

@MissTatas: Thank goodness!!! I am less worried and just need that necklace. I hope you find your shoes and a bra. I am exchanging bras since it will be a better fit for the newly tailed bust ( I couldn’t do a sweatheart neckline, so I am having the middle of the bust ruched together with a simple bow in the middle of it ^^) I am picking it up tomorrow CANNOT wait.
As far as pictures, I wont be able to, I dont have a digital camera or a readily availabe cell phone with camera. πŸ™ I know it would help, but I am glad that mismatched  is ok and its not that big of a deal at least and I will enjoy wearing my faveorite pieces together.

@caligurl:That might be hectic to have the earrings dipped in white gold, but hopefully you might get extra time to have them done if it ease your thoughts a little on the wedding day:) Thank you and evreyone else for your help, I was really worried and am at ease for the moment, again:).  Just have to wait for rsvps which  I might just have to make phone calls.
