@bLISSFLbRDE: hey! my grandmother has good taste. 😛 they are pretty. and yes, the naked cake that we have decided on has no frosting on the outside, just in the middle of the layers to bond them together. we’re going to decorate it with chocolate dipped strawberries, and fresh blackberries, and some fresh roses. we’re not big on icing, and we thought it was something that hasn’t been done at too many weddings. 😀 and the rouching in the front with a little bow sounds cute! i wanted to alter my strapless to a sweetheart neckline and was told i couldn’t due to the beading. 🙁 boooo!
@ijustrockout: things will come together, just breathe! 🙂 the necklase and earrings shouldnt’ take you too long, depending on wether or not they’re intricate. the beach arbor sounds wonderful! ahhh, i miss the beach.

AHHh so close!!!
I just finished Programs and “I Spy” Games. I ordered Bridesmaid or Best Man necklaces and Maid/Matron of Honor is picking out hers.
Lately I’ve been dealing with stressful RSVP issues! My deadline is this saturday and I still have over 100 RSVPs that haven’t come in yet (eek!) I’m starting to think about seating but it was so stressful I decided to leave it for later!
Confirming cake design, venue stuff.
PIcking out music for down the aisle has been a pain. and I HAVEE to get some sheet music to the pianist or she won’t be able to practice anything at all.
I live in Boston and the wedding is in PR so I have to wait until I get to PR next week so I can meet with my family and start doing a lot of the stuff we still have to do like making pinwheels, going over flower orders, makeup trial, etc.
I can’t believe we’re only 3 and half weeks away!

I’m new to posting (I’ve been stalking since I got engaged almost a year ago) but thought this would be a good place to start!
I’m an August 6 bride, too. Three weeks from tomorrow at this very time I will be married to my best friend…. so very excited!
Good luck with all the crazy last minute planning!

2 weeks by the end of this week, which will be here soon. I want I spy but I have no money left and mom will be paying for flowers instead of me:( which I am very very grateful. I can not wait but I can. Donated some jackets, a coat and shoes to goodwill. And figuring out the mood of the reception candlelight dinner music (no dancing) Sinatra, jazz, kenny Gwill do nicely I think! I still need drinking glasses b/c our caterer like to overprice her glasses and need to start thinking of what to wear for honeymoon trip. Arch is taken care of and will be stunning, I was so worried about it. We got our e-pics on cd back. Loved them! And meeting with photgrapher friday to go over wedding day scheduales.
Rsvps need a whole paragraph on there own lol. My deadline is the end of this week, the 23rd. And got back about 15 of the 70 that are showing up…I give up. I am just going to plan on making phone calls to Babcia and have him make phone calls on his side too.
Concerned about the weather. And so friday we should know what it will be like outside.
Deciding on if we need to get hard liquor for our open bar (wine and beer)Light rum and vodka. Wait till I get flowers till I start purchasing those.
Nedd boxes to start moving clothes in the next few days. And need hours at work , I have 4 hours this week 🙁 and gave myself the next week off, which now I dont need. Ahhhhhlol

Like 11 days left! I can’t believe how close it is. I haven’t been on here in forever and just decided to tonight. I bet everyone is so busy! I know I am. I still have to pack the favor bags, get 2 brides’ maids shoes, jewelry for the brides’ maids, and a few other things that I hope are simple. This has been really fun, stressful, but fun and I am sad to see it almost coming to an end, however I am super excited for that big day! I have got to spend a lot of time with my mom, friends, and even fiance` – he has been so involved in stuff, i’m so proud and happy! can’t wait girls! good luck to you all! =)
