I’m a day later than you! I’m beginning to freak out! The past few days I haven’t been able to sleep in (which is very unlike me) as I think my anxiety keeps waking me up. I have my final dress fitting today- most likely bringing it home, and hair trial tomorrow. I really hope that goes well, otherwise I am screwed! I’m in the process of making escort cards and will hopefully finish those this week. Also going to get marriage license on Wednesday. Many small little things to do as well. ahhhh! I can’t believe how soon it is!

I’m pretty much done with everything I have to clean my house and pack for the honeymoon. I also have a few Wedding projects left like Tweaking the seating chart slightly, a few more escort cards and some finishing touches to the table numbers. I also have my hair trial and I have to get it dyed next monday.

I am overall calm, but there are a couple things stressing me out.  First of all, the million things I need to finish at work before the wedding!  Second, I emailed my caterer, violinist, photographer, and reception manager Thursday/Friday and have yet to hear back from any of them.  I know there was a weekend in there, but I suddenly have these irrational fears that something will come up/they forgot about me.  Eek! 

But mostly, I am SO excited and I just can’t hide it.

  Ahhh!!! We will be married next week! We’ve made some good progress on our list, but we still have things to do.

– Send programs off to be printed (that will happen today)

– Finish the following DIY projects: Make table numbers, assemble programs, make the seating cards, fill the Out of Town boxes.

– Finish some shopping for the Out of Town boxes

– Confirm times with florist, DJ, videographer, and transportation

– Finish wrapping bridal party gifts, write notes to go in their cards

– Try on my wedding dress the day after my bachelorette party (not my best planning!) and hope that it fits! Same with the rehearsal dinner dress!

– Finalize itinerary

 

What I have done:

– Got our marriage license!

– Confirmed details with photographer, minister, and rehearsal dinner place

– Got my ring re-dipped

– Applied for an apartment! Hopefully our application should go through…I don’t see why it shouldn’t (knock on wood)

– Had my hair trial

@Mars62312:  Absolutely! This is do-able! πŸ™‚ You’re right…just do a few things each day, and stay busy.

I also forgot to mention to pack…we’re moving when we come back from the honeymoon. I worked on packing tonight, but it was hard! There are a lot of things I’m still going to need! Grr…oh well :-).

Oh, and I scheduled a make-up trial for next week…finally!

I’m also becoming the “List Queen”. I have different bags set out all over my room for each day (Rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, honeymoon). I can’t believe it’s next week!! In a few hours, we’ll be in SINGLE DIGITS!!! AHHH!!
