@Penelopeee: Best of luck with the rest of your planning. Love Christmas time weddings.

I’m getting stressed and I have not been stressed at all until now!


My to do list: marriage license, place cards, programs, alterations, finalize ceremony, arrange timelines for day of stuff. It doesn’t sound like a lot but its very tedious stuff.


I’ve been engaged for way to long and I’m sick of focusing on the wedding and I want to start focusing on our marriage. I can’t wait! 

Being able to say “next month” sounds so weird!!!

@Penelopeee:  Your post just triggered a minor heart attack.…

Left to do for me is

-Marriage License

-Guest favors

-Place cards

-Final Dress Fitting (Wed!!!)

-Buy My Jewlery

-Pick Songs for Ceremony (almost done!) as well as play/do not play list

-Day of Timeline

-Finish up attendant gifts (almost done)

-Build custom card box (A tardis :)) and pretty my shoes (converse)

-Guest Book

-Finals Meeting

Oh and track down the 30 missing RSVPs.…out of the 90 people invited.


Why did this come up so quickly???? 😛

oh my goodness!!! I just made a list of 75 things we have left to do!!! I know half of it is stuff that doesn’t really matter and we could probably get away without it (escort cards, wedding perfume, wedding signage), but I am just not one of those brides! I’m kind of denial about only having a month left! Need to get on it!!!!

We’re almost their ladies! It has been a busy two weeks full of wedding stuff (getting FI’s and my dad and his step-dad’s tux; meeting the officiant; etc.). I’m so excited for this time of year and just know it will go by quickly because there is so much happening.


Still to do:

Wedding dress alterations (Nov. 16)

Hair/makeup trial (coming up soon!)

Get remainder of RSVPS/call those who haven’t sent them in

Figure out seating plan for ceremony/reception

Marriage license (have to wait until at least Dec. 2 for Dec. 31 wedding)

Pay deposit for flowers

Create day of timeline

Guest book


Does anyone have any cool ideas for how to do a guest book for a New Year’s Eve wedding? We are struggling to find an idea we like.

Congrats everyone and Happy Holidays…almost!

This came up SO fast!  Just seems like yesterday Fiance and I were in the “just engaged” afterglow. LOL 😉

@Nic01:  Thirded.


I was fine until I realized next week is “pay all the vendors” week, and then my bank account started to cry. Poor, sad, soon-to-be-empty bank account.

I’m printing all the Order of Services out today 🙂 Started making our favours but ran out of ribbon!
