….Sad story about that.

My Fiance is a web designer, so he made these amazing invitations. We got them all put together and they looked FANTASTIC. Everything was done, the RSVPs, the map, the envelopes, the addresses…. Then. We realized, we spelled a word wrong.

Its just the two of us hanging out here most of the time… my advice to you: ASK SOMEONE ELSE TO SPELL CHECK!! lol… Like, even the mailman… someone…

It is discouraging, but we both got a good laugh out of it and moved on. Tomorrow I will be doing… oh…the same EXACT thing I did today!! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I havent had any nightmares yet… Im sure after today’s fiasco, they’re waiting…

@mSmartins10: 104 days in any other view would seem like FOREVER! I know there is a lot to do, but make sure you enjoy the time we have left too!! We dont ever get this back! My Fiance and I are making sure to really try to enjoy the planning… Luckily thats why we can laugh at our stupid mistake…

@Magenta: WOW! Flowers?! You are waaay ahead of me on that one… And really…dont panic with the invitations stuff…. I suggest you create an assembly line though. It works so well!

GOOD LUCK! Ill be thinking about ya’ll as we count down!

Things are going really well for me.  I, with the help of my mom, sister, aunt and Maid/Matron of Honor finished the invites this weekend.  I’m going to send them out in 2 weeks.  We also finalized everything for the Rehearsal Dinner and just heard from my Fiance today that he got his tuxes today.  Also had the first fitting on my dress.

Feelin’ Good!

Things are going well. 2nd fitting is this Saturday as is FI’s tux fitting. Hair trial is next weekend along with mailing out invites (eeeeek!!!!). I have a lot of little things to do (DIY projects mainly) and a bunch of meetings with various vendors in the next two months.

@mSmartins10-

I have a RSVP date of 6/19, because my venue needs a rough count 6 weeks before, which is 6/19.

@mSmartins10-  I don’t have a wedding planner and at first was really worried about it but now I have so much stuff done that my anxiety level is much lower.  I’ve just slowly been chipping away at things.

Just started our favors last night.  We’re doing a mixed cd…….over the course of our relationship we’ve created a few different mixed cds…it’s sort of our thing so it was only fitting to do one for this event.  I love the cover art that I did for it.

100 days out!!

I’m a little stressed.  Some things are coming together great.  Some things are totally stressing me out.  Things that I’m worried about are:

– Menswear (nothing picked out yet, but we’re headed to men’s wearhouse this weekend)

– wedding rings (i’ll be purchasing mine this weekend.  We still need to get his)

– Tent lighting (don’t really have any yet, but I’ve been chatting w/ our tent rental company)

– Invitations (The main cards are designed, but the rest of the suite is still in progress.  Plus, we stil need to print everything ourselves, corner punch everything, and assemble.)

– Ceremony music (Our flute playing friend now won’t be able to attend our wedding, so we’re scrambling to find someone else.)

A lot of the other stuff is all set, but I really hate having these major outstanding issues…

ok, i ordered my invites last week, but im pissed because the stationery lady keeps telling me that we are TOO early to send them out…EVERYONE is coming from out of town, so we really wanted to get them out like yesterday….I see quite a few of you have already gotten yours out, and now im grumpy! lol.

magenta, do you have an amateur friend looking to get into wedding photography? maybe you can work something out with them!

 

other than that, we still need to set:

ceremony musician, reception DJ, transportation, wedding favors, and the actual flow of the ceremony….im sure there are a million other things that we need to do (seating arrangements!!!!!!!!) but i can’t think right now…oh and my shoes came in the other day! yay!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
