  • Wedding: December 2011

I’m at 18 days out (DEC 3) and I am nervous, excited, scared, emotional. I have been so busy the past 3 months (not with wedding things) that it seems like all of my days are running together and time is flying.

I do a facebook countdown every day and people seem to enjoy commenting and I love hearing from my friends and family and all of them are supportive.

We are all done with the main planning, just little things left to go. Making favors, getting our marraige license, and final fittings.

How is everyone else doing?

@december bride: I love your blackboard!

I have tons of butterflies in my stomach right now as I type…32 more days! What?! Ahhh! My to do list is still a mile long. It’s all the small details, diy, follow up with vendors, etc. I’m so excited!! =)

I have my moments of panic. All the stuff that I’ve been saying for months that I have plenty of time to get done are suddenly needing to be done NOW.

Music is currently the bane of my existence. Who knew it would be so hard to come up with 4 hours of reception filler music?? And why did I wait so long to start thinking of this stuff?!

Seems like everyone around me is reminding me how close it is! I’m excited, but at the same time ready for the planning to be over. I have a house to renovate now!

I’m the same as yellowshoe… small details, diy and following up with vendors left to do. I’m very last minute. The food, booze and tunes are good to go, and that’s the most important in my mind. The rest is just background noise.

All the best, ladies! Can’t wait to see the recaps!!

I have a countdown going on my phone right now and everyone in the office counts down me everyday.

This weekend was my Bach. Party, so I accomplished NOTHING. lol. This weekend my Girls and I are going to buckle down and try and finish the majority of everything. We will also be doing some more partying. We actually have some Beer to finish (Shame on us). lol

@CherryWaves: Im with you, I cant wait to see all of our Recaps!!

Eeee! I can’t believe how close it is. I feel like I’ve been yo-yoing between feeling incredibly excited and feeling nervous, anxious, and stressed that things won’t fall into place. We’ve checked in with most of our vendors, and I’ve gone a bit crazy making exel spreadsheets, timelines, and schedules. It helps to put it all out on paper, especially for someone as Type A as me :p

Everybody at work and all of our friends are always reminding me how close it is, so I am getting excited! We still need to get our marriage license, go over everything with the band, assemble and box all of our day-of supplies…and of course, pay for it!

I feel like at this point, it is what is. All of the decisions are made, there’s really no use in panicking or second-guessing them. Deep down, I know it will all work out and that the day will be beautiful. Right now I feel like I’m on a roller-coaster of emotions, but hopefully when the time comes, I can just enjoy being a bride!

i’m so excited for december to hurry up already and get here. at the same time though, i’m so nervous! i didn’t think i would be, but i think it’s the culmination of finishing up the semester of school, getting all my work done for work, and doing all the last minute wedding stuff. 

fi and i are also moving next weekend into our new apartment (he’ll live there during wedding week and then once we come back from our wedding night hotel i’ll live there too), so packing + homework and projects are going to make for a very busy thanksgiving week. 

i definitely can’t believe my wedding is only 2 weeks away though. i can’t wait!

We got our marriage license today! We also went over all the stuff with the band last night. I’ve been feeling much better this week, like it’s all finally coming together. I can’t believe it’s just two weeks to go.

I’m starting to more excited than stressed, which is great 🙂 I just have a handful of small projects and the seating chart/escort cards left, and I think we’ll be in good shape.

@december bride: Despite the drought, I’ve been worried about rain too. Hopefully this warm weather will hold up for us!

@vintagemodernbride: Good luck with your move and with the end of school…I’m imagining how busy I am right now with two weeks to go, I can only guess how hectic things are right now for you with all of that on your plate. Good luck!

@december bride: Sounds like it’s all coming together! I feel like we’re a few steps behind you, but we’re getting there 🙂 We still have to make a seating chart, talk to our photographer, give our final numbers/make final payment, and order alcohol (all of those things about 1 week before, so next Monday).I love the idea about the book, too…I’m sure he’ll love it!

My parents are coming in town Wednesday before the wedding to help me assemble and box up all of the stuff for the candy buffet and centerpieces. I sent out schedules and detailed info to my coordinator and wedding party. I feel like I was super stressed a few weeks back, but I’ve started to feel like I’ve done all that I can to get organized and now I just have to trust all my vendors to make it happen.

The countdown is in the single digits!! I’m hovering between excited and anxious this week. We have lots of running around to do this weekend, and I’m worried the possible inclement weather that’s coming our way may put a damper on it… i don’t have time for freezing rain and snow!! I’ll be a busy bee tonight, finishing up the seating chart, table numbers, making phone calls, getting mine and FI’s speech started… almost there!

Wooo we are offiically in single digit countdown mode AND we picked up our marriage license today!!! Laughing

I almost died laughing when I opened the envelope in the car to look at it, and tucked inside is a pamphlet all about STD testing. Ohhh thank you Dallas county, I totally needed that laugh.

Honestly, I don’t even have time to think about it right now. I have a pretty high stress job at a mid-sized corporate law firm as the only paralegal to an entire department, so the pressure of getting everything in order just to take two days off is mounting like you wouldn’t believe. Everytime someone at works says “Oh, you must be so excited!” I seriously have to stop myself from saying “No, not really I have too many documents to revise to think about it.”.

Soooo yeah. The attire is all taken care of, the hotel is booked, the officiant and photographer are ready, we managed to get a free banquet hall because we went through a restaurant attached to a hotel, my makeup artist is ready. Really the only loose ends left are the cake (we’re making it this weekend), a cover for my dress as I haven’t had the time to leave the office and look for one, and fine-tuning our puppysitting arrangements.

Congrats to all you Bees getting married tomorrow and Saturday!
