@icanhearyousmile: I’m almost at the 3 month mark and still have a bunch of things to do.
– Get wedding bands
-Pick out veil
-Decide on cake and flowers
-Finalize music selection for ceremony
I’m sure there are some more things I’m forgetting at the moment.

Ugh I have not even started to think about vows. I feel like anything I say is going to be completely and utterly stupid, lol. I also tell Fiance all the time how important he is to me and write him romantic notes and stuff so I’m afraid that saying it won’t mean anything cuz he hears it all the time. *twitch*

FI wanted us to write our own vows. i agreed. i’ve started and restarted many times. i googled how to write vows.
here are some tips:
How we met
How we fell in love
How your SO makes you feel special
Why you want to spend the rest of your life with this person
Obstacles or challenges faced together
Strengths in relationship
Reasons you love this person
Expectations and hopes for the future

I think my biggest fear is what if mine are crappy compared to his? Lol. Or what if they go in a totally opposite direction? We’re writing our own and he wants them to be a surprise so I won’t know what they are until I hear them. What if I cry? What if mine suck? Ohgawd.

Goodness! We are almost to the 2 month mark, and this is what we have left:
-groomsmen need suits
-make my veil
-figure out transportation
-centerpeices (however, we’re using pumpkins…so I kind of have to wait on that)
-seating chart (just sent out invites though, so have to wait a little on that too!)
– buy cake serving set
– create do not play list
-rehearsal dinner plans
-marriage license (but we have to be a little closer. Here we have to use it within 60 days, so I’m waiting until we hit the 40-30 day mark)
-make table numbers
I think that’s it….It’s all the little stuff now, the big stuff is taken care of!

i’m worried about that too. i know FI’s vows are going to be better than mine.
but all that matters is that they are from the heart.
i’m going to do the best i can with writing them and maybe have my Maid/Matron of Honor look over them for me.
look up actual vows, there are plenty out there on the internet to help you get started or give you an idea of what other people say.
my friend suggested i look up monica and chandler’s vows from Friends and a couple from Bachelor or Bachelorette tv show. i think it was ryan and tristen?

Lol what is everyone doing for table numbers? We’re having kind of a nerd themed reception so instead of numbers we’re assigning Nintendo characters to our tables! We will have a Luigi, Mario, Bowser, Princess Peach, Donkey Kong, etc,. table…so we’re just going to assign everyone to their respective character (with pictures for the older folks who may be like “um wtf??”). ^__^
I will probably end up doing something like that too. Our officiant gave us some CD to listen to but neither of us have yet, lol. It’s called Wedding Words or something like that, idk. <_<
