@MrsStrawberry24: I’m trying not to freak out!! I am still waiting to hear back from my uncle who’s doing our ceremony. We have to submit our ceremony to the church by Feb 10th and my uncle hasn’t finished it yet, so I’m a little worried about that part.
We’re mostly just working on details now. I have to decide everything about me: jewelry, hairstyle, makeup, fittings, etc. My Bridesmaid or Best Man are on the ball with their alterations, so they are way ahead of me! I’ve been dragging my feet.
Things are much less hectic now that the invitations are out. I do wish people would RSVP though. We only get a few day, and I’m still waiting on about 100 to come back! Yikes!! Only about 3 more weeks to respond, so I hope they start pouring in soon. That’s WAY too many people to have to track down.
How’s everyone else doing?

Congrats! I hope everything turns out wonderful for all of you!

sigh…I am too afraid to even list my to-do stuff out here. Maybe when I’m home from work. Then I can attempt to not freak out if I see it all in 1 spot.

How are all your RSVPs looking?? We’ve gotten about 50% back so far.
We’re in the process of buying DIY stuff for the escort cards/table numbers. We have a whole list of stuff we still need to do and I hate looking at it. 😛

I finally finished my and my bridesmaids’ bouquets. Like, FINALLY. And I have the boutonnieres done for everyone except for ScottSouth. My bouquet is ivory and greyish blue, with lace from my mom’s veil wrapped around the “stems”. The groomsmen’s boutonnieres are all white and my dad’s will be silver, but they all have differently colored and shaped leaves.
Ceremony decorations are nearly finished (ribbon curtains and paper flower pomanders). We’ve started on the centerpieces, and we can actually finish them now that the last piece – mini candle lanterns – have arrived.
Like QCamB, we’ve gotten about half of our invites back, but some of those who are missing are either local family or members of the wedding party. I assume those people will be joining us.
The most recent craft before the flowers was the cardbox. I woodburned the little sign going with it. I’d never woodburned before, and it was really fun.
In other news, I’m very excited about being married! I’m excited to put our money into one pile, and to know that we’re always going to back each other up, and to have the same last name, and to make a home together. It’s going to be RAD.

@sarasouth: You are great at DIYing!! Love the flowers! I’d never be able to make anything look that cute! And that card box…adorable! Great job on the woodburning! Super cute!
Our RSVP count is SUPER SLOW!!! We’re still waiting on 96 RSVPs to come back. Only about 20 people have responded. It’s really frustrating. I’m having my shower this weekend, so I’m thinking maybe they’ll just bring their cards instead of mailing them in…at least that’s what I’m hoping! I don’t want to track down that many people. ;/

It’s feeling really real now. We have everything mostly done, just little things, have to buy a few more presents, need to do programs, and then finalize timeline with all the vendors. I think it’s starting to feel so close because I had my first dress fitting this past weekend and I have my makeup trial and shower this weekend.

*Grabs paper bag* I am starting to get anxious! Not about being married – SO ready to be married! Just about getting all this stuff done. I finally finished my programs last night, well designing them. I still need to print them and then do the applique thingy. My Mom and I got the bouts and corsages done this past weekend too. No pics, but they are super awesome! I’ll try and get pics tomorrow. We still need like 50% of our RSVPs back and it’s starting to annoy me. I’m going to wait until our RSVP deadline to be grumpy about it though. 😉 Lol.
