@candief:  Totally agree and I’m trying to have more of that attitude! I’m such a people pleaser, which does NOT mix well with wedding planning! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

@peachacid:  Omg, seating chart. There will be several bottles of wine involved during that evening!

Only a few days left, so at this point, if it doesn’t get done by memorial day, I don’t see it happening. My list isn’t that bad and could be knocked out quickly if I wasn’t a procrastinator. Heres my list:

  • book rehearsal dinner
  • water for ceremony guests
  • broom to jump
  • memorialize family
  • finish bathroom baskets
  • get a perfume
  • finish all signage
  • ceremony programs
  • assemble kids room stuff
  • finish sweetheart table stuff
  • get a cute clutch

I’m really stressed about getting everything finished. I still have to

-Finalize the music for the ceremony and reception

-Finish our vows

-Get our marriage license

-Pick up my dress

-Write the place cards

-Pick out our readings

-Get stuff for the sand ceremony

-Make signage for our signature drink, table numbers, and candy buffet

-Finish the seating chart

I think that’s everything.

I have been procrastinating as well. At this point, I just want the wedding day to be here. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am tired of hot glue strings, to-do lists the constantly need changed and updated and continually grow, making payments, and the stress! I got to try on my dress again after not having tried it on in forever, and I am so excited about wearing it, seeing my honey all dolled up, etc. that I want to throw the list out the window and elope ๐Ÿ˜‰ kidding…sort of… 

 

For the last two days I have been making myself do the things that I have put off forever on my to-do list which included our toasting glasses and our sweetheart table decorations. I have done a ton of DIY projects, and I have a few more to do this weekend which include: 

 

finish our table numbers and the guest “cards” <– we are making the clothespin bride and groom for these

signs…ugh, I don’t want to make the signs, I don’t know why, but I just don’t

3 boutineeres for people I forgot when I did all the others, and a throw away bouquet maybe?

our homemade photobooth..technically, my dad’s assignment but it is on the list

programs…probably should wait on this until closer to the day? 

 

then, we have a ton of other things to do like: 

marriage license

shop for our reception food and get prep work done with it

pay the last payments

finish marriage counseling

figure out the wording of the ceremony

I have to write my vows, Fiance has been done for quite some time

send an important shots to photographer

pack for honeymoon

pick up my dress

get the suit for my ring bearer because his mom is being slack on this

final tux fitting for my guys

pick up rental stuff

and finish the darn seating chart after I run down a couple no responders..I hate that people can’t RSVP, it is really annoying.
