  • Wedding: August 2017

Getting married mid-August and so excited! I’m pretty on track with my planning schedule right now… the biggest things left to do are order/mail invitations (will order Easter weekend when FI comes to visit) and our cake tasting, which I’m scheduling for late May.

It’s funny, I really good about where I am with things because I feel like we’ve had so much time to plan (we got engaged last May), but my mom is the one freaking out over details now. She wasn’t too involved before because she said we were still too far out, but now she’s constantly asking questions and I have to tell her, “Relax! I figured that out 5 months ago!” ๐Ÿ˜‚

FMIL also keeps dropping hints over her concern that we are DIY’ing all of the flowers, but I’m not worried. I’ve actually surprised myself with how relaxed I’ve been through this whole process. TBH I totally expected that I would be more of a bridezilla, but things have been very calm so far.

Star35 :  I am having a mini-panic attack just seeing how little time I have left. I am a procrastinator by nature but I don’t think that works for weddings. embarassed 

Sigh…just take me to the honeymoon already!!
