Oh god, I just realized I have SO much to do!!! I started DIY stuff a few weeks ago, but took a week off. So, basically I did stuff for a weekend and half a week!

My list:

Finish Bridesmaid or Best Man fabric tote bags – 4 more to go

Canning: few jams, apple chutney

Start making crepe paper flowers (doing ALL flowers this way…I’m crazy, yes, yes I know)

Jam labels

Work on vows (writing own)

Start downloading music for ipod reception

Work on wording for invitations…sh*t….I probably need to send those out soon!

Write ceremony / timeline for the day

I don’t even want to think of what else I have to do! Oh, and I work full time and am trying to go to the gym every day after work.  FREAK OUT!!! Holy cow.  I’ll get it all done.  I’m good with organizing/time budgeting.

Find wedding cake baker, table linens, and get my dress alterations started! (And enjoy my bridal shower!) Sent invites out early, so that’s already done.

My vow renewal is Aug 6, and I have soooo much left to do. Here goes (for the month of May):

Make invitations, get hubbys butt to tuxedo place, start alterations on my dress, order my shoes, make programs (figure out how program will go), start going to gym (my dress is already a tight fit, dont want to put on any more “happy” weight), meet with caterer, look for candles for centerpiece.

My goal is to be done with everything by July 6th. One month to be stress free. We shall see…good luck ladies!
