@Miss Orchard: & @sfblondebee:, you guys sound so on top of things! How exciting!

My current to-dos are to assemble and address our invitations, get the guys to go get fitted for their suits and and start figuring out the paper stuff (programs, place cards, signs, etc.) I’m planning to DIY. Plus about 100 other things… I feel like there’s still so much to do!

Well I made a to do list today and it felt never-ending! Getting the cupcakes ordered this weekend, ordering our passports and getting tuxes figured out next weekend. Finally got the videographer booked…..

I think we’re almost there on most of the big stuff. I’m ordering our invites tonight. Or shall I say, I’m ordering the pocketfolds and invites. I’m making the actual invitation myself. Need to get on that!

It’s coming up so fast!!!!

Hello to all! Things have just being to be hetic around my way. I have been stressing about the girls not everyon order there dress and the deadline is this Friday. Still haven’t found bridesmaids shoes to fit with the dresses that is a hard process lord help me.  I have two more that still have to get the fund so I got my fingers crossed. Good news found out my dress is back, but I am scared to do a fitting going to wait still tryign to lose a couple more pounds so we will see how that goes soon. Gotta still pick out invitations and send off for our passports asap so much to do so little time. Other than that we are almost set for the big day. Happy Planning!

I sent out my invitations 2 days ago! People have been asking for them for weeks and we’re moving in 2 weeks so I didn’t want the to get damaged. It feels so good to have those out. To do: book honeymoon flights (cruise and hotels booked), engagement photos (wanted summery pics), and a ton of stuff I shouldn’t do until we move, like flip flop bin, table numbers, veil, marriage liscense, putting together the favors. 

I’ve been procrastinating booking my hair and makeup person and picking our songs. Oh and finding shoes and a clutch. I hate shoe shopping. 

I’ve been working out and eating mindfully, though. After the move I’m signing up for a gym (current place has free gym, next does not) and taking Zumba classes. If I lose 2 lbs a week there’s still time to lose at least 30 lbs!!

Doing well.  Most of the big stuff is planned.  Still need to get engagement pictures taken (scheduled for Tuesday).  Need to purchase wedding rings, now need to find a pianist (our broke her hand UGG), do my dress fitting, the rest of the groomsmen need to do their fitting, move Fiance in my house, and some other small details, but it’s mostly coming together!
