Ill bite… I just sent invites out yesterday! AHHH which is later than I wanted because due to our limited seating & it being an hr and a half away we put an early RSVP date of June 4th or June 9th I dont remember exactly!

Omg what else to do… ALOT! I dont have any programs or that planned! We havent heard back from the bishop to even ok that we arent getting married in a church; noone to do hair/makeup! AH Im feeling a little overwhelmed!

I got my invites out back in late April with a RSVP deadline of May 15th which was early but many guests are coming from overseas including us so we really needed to see how many people were able to come.

 

Things left to do:

hair/make up

childcare for our 18 month old daughter

booze and licence

transport

accessories

 

those are the main things I think, so much can’t be done until we arrive in Canada 2 weeks before our wedding and I am sure itw ill be manic!

I’m sending my invites out on Monday!  The RSVP date is June 23rd.  I still have to reserve a block of rooms and decide on where I will get my hair done.  We haven’t booked our honeymoon yet, either, because I left that up to my fiance ๐Ÿ™

HI all,

Just did my hair and make up trail this weekend and loved it. Next thing on my list are favors, which i can wait a few weeks for so i can have a closer idea of an exact number. I need to work on my bathroom baskets, grooms gifts, flower girl gift, ring bear gift, and parents gift…

I’m still assembling my invites and hope to mail them during this next week, with an RSVP date of July 1. It’s coming up so soon! I also am having serious dress regrets and will be buying a different dress in the next few days that I found on eBay. (I had bought a $99 David’s Bridal dress that I have now decided I hate.)

We’ve written the service/vow stuff with our officiant, a good friend who happens to be an Anglican priest, so that will all be fine.

My man still needs to nail down his groomsmen, but we have the bridesmaid dresses ordered, venue booked, decor planned but not purchased. I’m not too worried about it; we’re having a pretty casual wedding and the guys will be in khakis & white shirts, with navy ties and navy Chucks. So, no tuxes to order.

I’m going to DIY my flowers, which I’ll order online. Same for programs and favors: all designed but not actually ordered.

Hey, I’m joining the conversation late.

I’m getting so stressed, and I just want to it be two months from now. My Future Mother-In-Law gave me a list of 93 names to add to my guest list (even though the invites went on at Easter). And she only gave me names, no addresses, no phone numbers and expects me to “figure it out”

In general his Mother-In-Law is just plain crazy, which is leading he’s parents towards divorce, which I’m stuck in the middle of. My Fiance is also getting depressed over summer classes and the never ending family drama. I have so much to do and I’m getting so tired of planning. I’m just needed to rant, because I feel like i’m at the brink of tears these days. I can deal with wedding planning, but not the non-stop family drama that’s came with it.

Sorry just needed to rant. because I have no one else to rant to. I’m fine now. Finally, buying rings this week. SO fun to shop for them. Now just to get them ordered!

60 DAYS TO GO!

I can hardly contain my excitement. Most of our wedding is done and planned – but its just paying the rest of the deposits and whatnot that we have left. My Fiance just booked our DJ yesterday – which I am SO excited about because it was the last thing left on our list.

I have been hearing from our venue and rental company that July 30th booked up FAST! Thank goodness we got on the ball early and put deposits down.

My dress is still at DB being fitted to my measurements. I went in last week and the dress didn’t fit – somehow they made it smaller. That was a minor panic moment.

I still need to get things like MOH/BM gifts, our cake cutting set, cake topper, etc. Just small little things that I can find walking down the mall.

We sent our invites out in March(after the STD’s we sent in Februray). We had an RSVP date of March 15th. We have all but about 5 of the 85 we invited who have RSVP’d to attend! It is going to be a fabulous day. We wanted to get the invites out, especially after we heard July 30th is a busy day, so we could give our guests(some out of town) plenty of time to make their arrangement and save the date.

It is going to be a FABULOUS day!

I’M SO EXCITED!

Oh yay I’m so glad I found this!  We are getting super excited!  We just hit the 2 month mark yesterday, and I still feel like I have so much more to do!

We sent our invites out at the end of April and our due date is July 1.

We still have to meet with our venue and work out some details.  I also have to work on a few DIY projects that are still in process.  I’m finally feeling like things are coming together nicely!

I’m starting to feel a little flutter of nervousness too ๐Ÿ˜›  Probably will go away once I get more stuff done ๐Ÿ™‚

Are any of you having an outdoor wedding? We are – and I have the most beautiful aisle runner – but I’m a little worried about how to keep it down if it gets a little breezy(which it tends to in WA in July). Any ideas?
