break out the blender – i hate centipedes especially!

take some deep deep breaths, everything will turn out all right, im sure of it! A lot of people put off sending RSVPs in until the last minute so dont freak out just yet – if the 10th rolls around and still no RSVPs i would designate having someone from his side call around, someone from your side call around and you handle all your personal friends. i did a lot of calling in the weeks leading up to my wedding – i was able to figure out who would be there and who wouldnt, and those i just couldnt figure out well – i didnt include them and they didnt come.

@MonAmi: I’d skip the drink and get out the excel spreadsheet. Start at the top and start leaving voicemail messages to your guests that the caterer is asking for final numbers. It’s okay to be pro-active, it’s your wedding. Is it an extra hassle? Absolutely! BUT…………you’ll get your answers quicker and the stress will go away. πŸ™‚

Its OK! People tend to send in a bunch right near the deadline too. Since your counts are needed so soon after, you will prob want to call the stragglers–which sucks, but you’ll have your numbers!

It is so hard to do it yourself. *hugs* But you can! If there’s something you want to let go of but feel like you shouldn’t, it’s ok–just let go. For example, I gave up on a cake topper, new shoes, a perfectly stacked reception iPod, an awesomely planned Rehearsal Dinner speech, and more–it all turned out just fine.

And I dunno if this helps or not, but I was freaking out about various things until May 12 (my wedding was the 14th). I was sure there would be no cake, it would rain, people would hate it–you name it. I couldn’t believe it was actually going to happen in 30, 15, 7, 2 days…I just didn’t think it would be possible, that I hadn’t planned enough or had done it all wrong. But it did happen and turned out fine and was an awesome day. Yours will be too!! For now though, a drink will help for sure….

pour a big glass of wine and enlist your Maid/Matron of Honor to call/email your unresponded guests on the 11th to confirm if they are coming.

@MonAmi: Yes, definitley go to the gym, this will help relieve some stress, then come home and soak in the tub with a good book or magazine.
