RSVPs for sure. My mom volunteered to call her family members way back when, but now she decided to email instead. Yeah, that doesnt work as well. I’m calling today.

Transportation vendors not getting back to me for quotes on shuttle rental

Future Mother-In-Law never sent rehearsal dinner invites, and now needs to know what meals everyone wants

 

DIY projects:

In process:

Wedding Signs

Centerpieces

 

Haven’t begun:

Fascinator

Sewing color swatches into wedding gown

Trial flower run

 EDIT: BIG one. PASSPORT. Nervously waiting for our renewals to arrive in the mail.

I have a lot of other things to take care instead of the wedding so unfortunatly everything is on the back burner. Because of the mistake in the RSVP date, we have been tracking people down since 2 weeks after we sent the invites. 

I still have our escort cards to do. My Fiance still has to design some of our paper products. We have to purchase our cardstock. Luckily I have two very willing and able FSIL’s who are willing to help however way they can. 

 

My Fiance and I work very well together but are both HUGE procrastinators so I’m sure we will be getting this done 2 weeks before the wedding but it will get done. 

I still have to figure out what I want to do for my hair. I have no jewerly or hairpieces. 

Still have to decide gifts for EVERYONE except Fiance. 

We also have to make our photo guestbook.

ugh.

  • Details my fiance don’t agree on….sweetheart/head-table, height order for BP/married couple together, speeches/no speeches, GM/us classic car cruise/get to the damn reception!, receiving line/greet at tables, etc….
  • Sister’s Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is f’d up and she just found out when she went for alterations and the lady refused to try to take it in, thinking there was a manufacturing defect
  • RSVPs suddenly stopped coming in
  • My house/property is not getting much interest after being listed for 4 weeks
  • Name change/adoption/let sleeping dogs lie with my son situation still not resolved
  • Were supposed to get more pics taken to fill photo-guestbook since our E-session didn’t turn out well….not done
  • Chaplain just informed us he won’t be at the rehearsal!
  • Most furstrating, I no longer have the perfect magazine images picture of the reception venue in my head anymore — I just can’t see it all coming together perfectly like I did at first πŸ™ That just makes it no fun to think about and work on!

@78science:  

Oh, sweetie, that’s a LOT on your shoulders :(..i think we all worry a little too much over details. I hope guests will take in the idea behind every detail and grasp the meaning of it all but maybe it’s a little too much to expect, i guess.

Don’t you have anyone you can ask for help???

  • Get my hair trimmed!!
  • Start making a list of final payments, etc
  • Start thinking of what we need to pack for honeymoon!
  • I spontaneously ordered a reception dress, though not sure if it will fit or I will use it even if it does
  • Hunting down bridesmaids to figure out who wants make-up done so I can finalize our appts

@aheavel:  Heyllo date twin!!! An idea for your seating chart here πŸ™‚ We were in the same position as you, luckily we have know gotten our final count but I did set up a mock seating arrangement, we put everyone who didn’t RSVP at the back tables…together πŸ™‚ Rude maybe, but in case I didn’t ever hear from them they still had a spot and I didn’t have to worry!

That sucks about the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, we only have our daughter as an attendent so we lucked out! BUT I still need her dress altered from my mother, who smokes, so we are hoping we get it back with time to get the smell out!

 @ChemistryBride: Our timeline is an excel spreadsheet that is very simple! It is organized by time, then it has the location (with address), then what is happening, then a column for WHO needs to be there (I need to add cell numbers to this). It was actually pretty easy and will be very helpful. I will send it out to everyone who has their name on it πŸ™‚

I am the world’s worst GET THINGS DONE person, I have never been a procrastinator πŸ™‚ I think I drove people nuts trying to get everything done, but they are all thanking me now because we are down to 19 days and the only things that are left are favors (we are using trail mix and want to keep it fresh as possible), purchasing water and pop, and decorating the actual venue (family farm so we have the week of to get this done).

Otherwise I ahve my trial runs for hair and makeup this week, hair highlighting next week and a few days off to get it all accomplished with time to put out any fires!
