I’ve reached a total lull and I hate it! I’m planning from out of town and got a chance to knock out all the big stuff a couple months ago, so now I’m bored. I’ve had to keep myself from working on our invitations (that don’t need to go out for another 2 months), just because I have nothing else to do. I’ve started buying my bridesmaids’ gifts to keep myself entertained in the meantime 🙂 I feel like throughout the planning process I have done everything just a *little* bit too early, but I’m hoping it’ll start paying off in another month or two when I’m not up to my eyeballs in wedding tasks (well, anymore than I already will be anyway).

Ha, I wish I were in a lull as well. We have vendors booked, but we need to start looking at invitations and suits for the groom/groomsmen. Also, all those little teensy tiny details need to be worked out such as flowers, favors, table linens for the reception. I tend to get aggravated when planning gets in the way of just enjoying time with my Fiance.  Definitely wishing I could afford a wedding planner! 😉

We’re totally behind!  We need a ring for him, clothing for him and the Groomsmen, a florist (just for personal flowers, not centerpieces), need to rent chairs and find someone to set them up, need to write the ceremony, and do a ton of crafts. Plus we’re getting into that fun period when more money starts to come due. I’m getting totally stressed out! We did just order invited though (but still haven’t mailed the save the dates!).

Hi! We hit a lull but then things sort of hit all at once this week and the future Mr. is out of town with no cell phone reception. It’s been so hard not to be able to talk him about the wedding! I was feeling like he really did not care, but not being able to talk to him made me realize he does, he trusts me to make the decisions, but I bounce every single one of them off of him. Ah. The tough part is that we are both out of town from the wedding site and out of town from each other. Things will get done, though! They have to!

I’m so far behind!  I don’t have a florist, invites, musicians for the ceremony, rings, tuxes, or any of the little details done!  I’m getting so stressed but I just don’t have time to fit it all in with school and being 350 miles from home.  I’m hoping that when I’ll be able to get the last few big things done in the next week or two and then wait on all of the little things until after finals.

I was in kind of a “wedding rut” recently- I was SO over the whole wedding and just sick of planning.  But tonight I lined about 1/3 of my envelopes and made a to-do list of wedding projects to finish this weekend, plus FI’s cousin just finished my invitation proofs, so I’m starting to get excited again!:)

Yaaaaaaaaaaaay July brides!!!

We’re actually doing “okay”. I still need to get him off his waffle-fit over which guy he wants to ask to be his best man, and then we move on to what they’re going to wear. (I tackle one item at a time on him or he starts getting a dazed look on his face!)

Other than that, the next big hurdle is invitations. I’ve got those designed and ready to go to the printer, as soon as they can give me a quote! I’ve gotten the samples of the bamboo plates that we were thinking about using for the reception, and they look great for our casual backyard wedding. Now if the wood silverware samples will just get here!

Still to work on: table/chair/tent rentals, florist, setting hair/makeup appointment, order favors. And I’m sure there’s something else I’m forgetting but I’m feeling awfully calm about all of this!

OK i think I’m one of those super relaxed brides.. I dont even feel like in getting married this year..lol.. we slowly been knocking things out of the way.. and everything is going so perfectly.. maybe thats why im so cool about it.

My sister told me that im crazy for being so calm.. she told me i need to sit there and plan, plan, and plan..lol.. im not that kind of person.. I call one person to find out what they offer and ill probably stick with them.. does that make me a bad bride??
