@Khumble: Thanks for this, really helpful! My flowers are “pick up” too — I need to delegate already!

@ahavah: Thanks, I’m calling them one by one today! 🙂

Oh my god I’m literally just a MONTH away!

Oh yeah.  By the way, I can’t get anything done at work (work related)!!! I keep trying to focus, but something wedding related always comes up! Like music play lists, seating charts, anything I can do on the computer.  This needs to stop!! Thankfully I’m not really that busy/if I was I’d be a little more focused. 

Anyone else having this problem? lol.

This week is starting off to be very emotional.  I was pretty stress free the entire year planning a 300+ wedding until I just got back from my bachlorette party.  My fiance told me about all these people complaining about things here and there from other friends.  It was just upsetting because it’s one of those things that you could’ve told me in person without all this unnecessary drama.  Just the gossipping, grumbling and complaining is starting to get to me.  I feel like I’m doing my utmost best, but when I start hearing about these things it just depresses me to the point where I don’t even want to have a wedding anymore. 

I wish my fiance was with me now, but he’s 500 miles away and I’m planning this wedding mostly by myself with the help of my mom and maid of honor.  So it just feels very lonely right now.  blehh

I can’t wait till the wedding is over…soooo over it.

@The Average Bride: Awww… I can relate to that somewhat. Sending cyberhugs! It willl be over soon! That’s what I tell myself — I just want to have it done with!

@Nickynick: Congrats on finishing the DIYs!

The only thing I’m DIYing I think are the table numbers — they’re so expensive online.

@The Average Bride: Gah. I’m at this point too. Where I’m like, just get here August 13 already! I just want to be married and have it done!

I’m all done with my DIYs..Just need to finalize the ceremony and the song list. Anyone have a good recommendation on where to get music ideas from?

Just waiting also for my slacker guests to respond. Still waiting on 73 responses! Ugh!

We have made good progress so far but even though we had a 3 year engagement we are still scrambling : )

We still need to

-pick up our rings get them appraised and insured

– pay the final payments to most of our vendors (about 5k)

-decide if we are doing an open bar or not

– get fitted for my dress

-get my custom shoes (which i have been waiting for since March : ( )

-get groomsmen gifts

– complete shot list for photographer

-create design for photobooth photo strips

– touch base with ceremony musician who was learning music for our ceremony

 

I think that is it. I will keep you posted!
