Stressfully! 

 

Some days I feel like everything is under control. Other days (like today) I am beyond stressed. 

 

Was going to try to figure out honeymoon today, but just managed to argue with Fiance about it. Sigh.

 

What are the other june bees working on?

Hahahahahaa! In a word: “EEEK!” LOL We are almost done hand addressing the invite & rsvp envelopes. And I was just given a buttload of candle jars and such today to use, twinkle lights & tulle. Not sure how much of it I will use. I’m getting so excited!!!!!!!!

I am super duper excited some days…and then really tired of it on other days! lol. We have completed the main things, but are hung up on the nitty gritty details like what readings to have during the ceremony…as of right now, I am pretty pooped and wish it was just here already lol

Super excited, but definitely feeling the stress. I have all the big stuff done except for the florist, so it’s mostly the small details now – and there seem to be so many!!!

There ARE a lot of details. It just dawned on me that I still don’t have the cake cutting stuff, or a guest book of some kind, pen, ect… D’oh!

I haven’t done much at all lately, my priority has gone to studying for my nursing licensing  exam that I have this week. After Wednesday I’m hitting the planning hard, I have so much to do! I’m going down to the states the first weekend of Feb so hopefully will get the bridesmaids dresses off the list as well as all of my accessories – those details have been really nagging at me.

We had a lot of stuff going on towards the end of last year (moving, twice. I left my job. Thanksgiving. I got a new job. Working like crazy at my new job. Christmas. New Years) and didn’t really do anything from Oct-Dec. We kept thinking “oh, we have six months”

I realized today that it’s only 4.5. OMG.

We basically have everything. We’ve picked the venue and paid deposits. We’ve picked the two photographers. We’ve picked the dj/lighting vendor. We don’t have contracts with any of them, nor have we paid any deposits, because they’re all friends. Fiance insists that we don’t need contracts.

We have free Save-The-Date Cards we got from vistaprint maybe two months ago. They’re still here in our apt (along with Christmas cards that never went out. Sigh) We haven’t looked at invites or flowers. We looked at a favor / escort card combo, but it would be like $5 for each person. (another sigh)

We haven’t started our timeline, music, readings, vows, bridesmaid dress shopping, my alterations, picking out his and the groomsmen’s outfits, menu tasting, cake tasting and anything else you can think of.

Things are ramping up adn I’m getting a little overwhelmed! My big concern now is planning our ceremony, and fixing our hideous invite proofs. We also want to plan the honeymoon soon.

I can’t wait to order my ring, I picked it out but we just don’t have a day to go for a little while.

In general I’ve been feeling pretty good, but there are some huge missing pieces that still need to be taken care of:

  • Find friend to emcee (iTunes DJ) <– this is HUGE
  • Book wedding weekend hotel rooms for family and bridal party
  • Settle on menu with caterer

Other than that, it’s just little things right now:

  • Card box
  • Guest book + pens
  • Continue making coffee filter roses (this is easy but a huge time sink)
  • My underwear + dress alterations — starting this Saturday!
  • Random decorations like bunting, table runners, Mr & Mrs signs, etc. (all DIY)
  • Bouquets & bouts, centerpieces (all DIY with silk/paper flowers)
  • Ordering FI’s ring

Big things that are looming on the horizon, all of which are DIY:

  • Invitations
  • Place cards
  • Programs
  • Table numbers
  • Seating chart
  • Writing the ceremony (?!?! minor detail haha)

So that’s where we stand right now. I’m kind of in a lull right now because I feel like it’s too soon to do a lot of these things yet, but next month and March are going to be crazy.
