Feeling very stressed. Can’t believe there are just over 80 days to go!
There is a decent amount done though I guess. We have: the church, the venue (which also will be making all the food including the cake and is all picked out), the rehearsal dinner site, the DJ, the photographer, the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and Flower Girl dress are ordered, the tuxes picked out, wording for invites and all the pieces are at the stationer getting proofs made (although I have to finish the map and send that out ASAP), we know what favors we want, went to Pre-Cana and went to 1 of 3 mentor couple meetings but the other meetings are already scheduled, garter and champagne glasses purchased, swag for the staircase at the reception, honeymoon booked, and I have my first fitting this week where I also need to order my shoes (getting them dyed BLUE!), but I know the heel height will be fine so I just need to take a pair that is comparable.
Still need to do: Finalize and order flowers, get passport, decide on centerpieces (non-floral) and buy materials, rent linens, mail invites, finish and send wedding party info packets (so people get an idea of at least everyone else’s names and some notion as to what will being happening when after they get here since practically everyone is OOT), purchase attendant gifts, programs, purchase/make favors, figure out who is baking what cookies and bake them, decide on Out of Town bags purchase materials and put them together, seating chart, get all parent and grandparent wedding photos and photos of relatives that away very recently, find hair/makeup artist, select ceremony music, select ushers, gift bearers and readers, find hair accessory and jewelry for me and bridesmaids, whew.
I think a lot of the stress is coming from me not having a job yet and trying to shop around for the absolute best deals. Its hard trying to even find something PT to supplement since I have been going between states quite a bit (FH is in one state along with mentor couple, parents and wedding in another). Otherwise I think the centerpieces, linens, hair/makeup, Out of Town bags and attendant gifts would all be done now. My mother is also proving to be very difficult in working with me to get things done (like I find a good deal and she scoffs at it or how she won’t order her dress for some unknown reason). Oh well, just keeping my fingers crossed that it all works out.
