~ How are you doing?
Good, I am sooooo excited πŸ™‚ 

~ What’s left to be done?
Make seating chart (tables already planned), then a bunch of small last day things – put together candy bar and centerpieces, make bouquets, pack for honeymoon!, figure out how we will dance to our first dance ( I really dont want to swaddle around in a circle for 4 minutes), bridesmaids jewelry (probably creating the most stress)… not too bad! 

~ Have you had any meltdowns?
Ha! Most definitely πŸ™‚ But Maid/Matron of Honor or Fiance always calm me back down! 

~ Anything else to share with us month twins?
I am so excited for the wedding but I also can’t wait for our honeymoon to Mexico! 


PS. NINE DAYS!!!!!!

Hi Miss Godiva!!Wink


~ How are you doing?
I am taking two days off work to FINISH!

~ What’s left to be done?
Im working on the day of time line, one for the wedding party that started as a book and is evolving into a power point (seriously!), A detailed instruction booklet for my wedding planner that is akin to very detailed sub plans I leave for my classroom, music play list, delivery of all my stiff to the florist ( I finished her 10 page instruction manual today) delivery of everything else to the storage unit, hire the cleaning lady to come EVERY week unitl my parents get here, finalize the cake and cupckae details ( i kept changing my mind too!) and I STILL have to figure out how to serve dinner as the caterer didn’t like my buffet idea grrr!

~ Have you had any meltdowns?
3. I think that is plenty.

~ Anything else to share with us month twins?

I’ll play, though I’m a bit later in the month!

~ How are you doing?
honestly, not good. Very stressed out at this point – can’t wait for it to be ovvvvverrrr.

~ What’s left to be done?

Finishing Seating chart (after I finish getting the RSVPs), finalize linens/chairs, get hair dyed and eyelashes extended, final fitting, finalize song choices, make programs, finish cookies for cookie bar, make placecards, finalize timeline, final appointments with vendors, finish cardbox (luckily I have a fabulous DIY mom who can help with these things), final payments etc etc

~ Have you had any meltdowns?
Yes, a few, mainly over chairs, linens and people interjecting their opinion when they shouldn’t be oh and the fact that I don’t get to do anything fun lately, because all I do is wedding stuff.

~ Anything else to share with us month twins?
We are almost done! πŸ™‚

~ How are you doing?
I’m starting to get quite stressed out. I haven’t been able to focus on work all week. The only thing I can think about is the wedding. I’m excited for the wedding but I’m even more excited for it to be over.

~ What’s left to be done?

– make a seating chart and name placeholders for the tables

– make labels and a sign for our candy buffet

– purchase gifts for our ringbearers but since they’re only 4 and 2, I’m sure they won’t be too picky.

–  find jewelry to wear.

– write my vows <—this task is stressing me out the most!

~ Have you had any meltdowns?
The only meltdown I had was after I got home from my hair trial because I hated how it looked and it was nothing like what I’d asked for. I took my mom with me to my trial so she could give me feedback and she didn’t say ANYTHING until we got home. I kinda lost it on her and that’s out of character for me.

Hang in there guys. This is the final stretch. We’re sooooo close to the big day! =)

-Final meeting with our cake lady

its funny i woke up this am and thought holy sh*t we are down to single digits…yea!  I only have today and next tuesday at work too..thank god cause I am not very productive right now!!!

~ How are you doing?
I am doing great!! I am feeling a little bored cause there is not much left to do ont he wedding!!!

~ What’s left to be done?
finish re-doing my program fans – we had a switch in groomsman, seating chart – but that keeps changing cause people keep breaking up or getting back together..i joke i will be finishing it the day of the wedding – finish my agenda for the DOC and the girls, and then pampering…tomorrow is carpets cleaned at the house, eyebrow waxing, and haircut, next week is massage, facial, mani and pedi and then I am good to go!!!   oh and i think i will be cleaning my house like a mad woman cause we have tons of people crashing at our house.  my friends got me a house cleaner as a present but we all agreed I should use it for after they all leave..so I get the clean house for me!!!

~ Have you had any meltdowns?
YES…but only one 11 days from the wedding we had a huge issue with catering..our friend left his partnership in the company so the “deal” we were promissed ended up being $1400 more than we expected since he was no longer handling catering!!!

~ Anything else to share with us month twins?
I am so excited for this wedding and I am sure all my friends and family can not wait till it is over so that I start talking about anything other than weddings!!!  Oh and I can not wait to get on my honeymoon in Playa del Carmen!!!!
