We have a million things left to do on our list, although we’re whittling them down one by one… still have to print and cut menus, create a seating chart, create and print some ceremony signs (in lieu of programs), set up our centerpieces, final dress alterations/pick up, final appointment with the photographer, figure out gifts for our parents, ahhhh I can’t think of the rest T-T  I made a big dry erase board list!!

I feel excited…  but also like I need a really long nap!  Why is there still anything left to do?!?!

  • Fix table numbers.
  • Make special flower girl ribbon wands.
  • Write escort cards.
  • Finalize seating chart.
  • Make Cookie Dough.
  • Buy meringues.
  • Pick remaining music.
  • Stop emailing the caterer and venue like, every day with questions and general annoyingness.
  • Finalize bridal party gifts.
  • Design program and send to mom.
  • Get frames for gifts for parents.
  • Finish alterations…  should probably call the lady…
  • Celebrate my friend’s wedding out of state this weekend.
  • Celebrate my cousin’s wedding next weekend.
  • Pack.

Seriously, though.  I’m exhausted thinking about it!

Super excited but nervous too, so much to do!

-get marriage license

-do hair and makeup trials

-make lace balls

-wrap jars

-buy a million little things

-make list for the MC

-finish up the ceremony

-buy shirt for groom

-arrange exact timing with all vendors

-buy present for my officiant (not sure this is normal but she is travlling to do it and not charging anything)


probably more but these are what comes to mind.


I was panicking recently and reading my list off to my Maid/Matron of Honor. Her response “Are you on your period? Because none of those things are hard”

LOL and that is why she is my Maid/Matron of Honor, a little perspective was very helpful

I was feeling very well, people would ask me if I was nervous and I was not. But last Saturday I was watching some videos from our videograper and boy oh boy…thats when it started to hit me. It comes and goes. As long as I am focused on the planning I am good. We also practiced our first dance a couple of nights ago…well you know nerves kicked in again 🙂 I guess from now on it wil be a rollercoaster ride 🙂
