@Penelopeee: We got our marriage licence on Monday and that was pretty much the last thing to do! My Future Mother-In-Law and I still have to make our favours (chocolates) and put them all together. My next dress fitting is Nov 15 and my hair trial is Saturday. The only thing I’m stressing about is all of the final payments lol.

Ugh final payments. I am SO over spending money!!!!!! I only have 900 to go so almost done!! Fiance is paying for the dinner though so he’s starting to feel the pain.

Had my final fitting yesterday, ordered the cake (carrot-yum). Done. I hope….

wow….good luck with all of that! I’m also having my bachelorette this weekend!!
Bishops approval (huge sigh of relief)
Rehearsal date/time set
24 days!!! Obviously I am not going to meet my November 15th deadline…. MITTENS! (That’s code for f#ck)

We are less than a month away and I’m super excited and SUPER freaked out!! So much to do, so little time!
My bachelorette is this weekend too! yay!
Next week, meetings with our sponsor couple, caterer, DJ, coordinator, rehearsal dinner venue–oh my!
I feel guilty because I have been going to bed pretty early and not really making sure I’m working on wedding stuff and working out daily and since we’re less than a month away, I can’t afford to not be!
Presents have started to come in! Our RSVP’s are due right after Thanksgiving and we’ve gotten maybe half of them back.
Need to send in final payments! Also, need to step up my beauty routine! I’ve been trying to drink more water, too!

Water water water…. I stick a little wedge of lemon in to make it more bearable.
We are less than three weeks out. Just about everything is done, we hope to get some stuff finished this weekend. We’re stuck on our music choices…but it will ALL get done and it will be perfect!
Post # 24
yes!! I start my day off with a cup of hot lemon water–so good!
That’s great that you are done!! Good luck with your music! I feel stuck on that too. I’m not 100% sure if I love our first dance or our last song.
Post # 25
I know what you mean. We thought we had our first dance all figured out – then the other day we were all “hmm, what do you think about using the runner up song instead?” LOL

Ohmygosh, I love the idea of the guests signing a champagne bottle! I’ve been wracking my brain on what to do for a guest book and this is a perfect idea for our NYE wedding!
Post # 27
Update! Almost everything is now done! Only have a few more things to do:
Hair/makeup trial (hair tomorrow; make-up Dec. 7)
Marriage license (have to wait until at least Dec. 2 for Dec. 31 wedding)
Guest book (thinking the champagne suggestion or have a few other ideas)
Only have 3 guests still unsure if they can come…should know completely in a week!
I found out that the only alterations I’ll need for my dress is the strap sewn onto dress (it was a snap) and the bustle! The alterations woman told me “Do NOT lose even half a pound”…okay, if you say so! Back to eating Reese’s.
How’s everyone else doing? Any last minute wedding issues that are arising?
