Going well here, more or less! Got a lot done this month, we met with our officiant (who is awesome), registered, got FI’s ring and mine is in progress, and made all our DIY invitation decisions. They’re approaching ready, just in need of hotel block cards, addresses, and fairly minor assembly!
My big setback this month was that my dress came in and it is just not happening. There is nothing wrong about it, I just don’t feel any kind of good in it. But the plus side is that I’ve found a different option, off the rack so quick to order, the budget is ok, and odds are pretty good that I can sell the existing dress. And now I have my eye on a dress that I actually love and that feels like “me” rather than just being a lame stand-in for a dress I can’t afford. So I’m calling it a weird win.
As far as I can tell, the main things left to do are basically my overall look (on hold with no dress), his suit, music (a friend is iPod DJing, we just need to figure things out), alcohol, and a few random odds and ends. I think it’ll be fine!

I just mailed my invitations yesterday! And my bridal shower is 2 weeks from this Saturday! We have almost everything, but we still have to get beverages (wine, beer, pop, and water)

I’m doing the final touches – final food tasting, final dress fitting and stalking the mailbox everyday for RSVP’s. I feel like I’m all set, but waiting for the other shoe to drop. I ask myself, am I really this prepared and organized?? Surely, I’ve missed something???
