This weekend is going to need to be a productive one for me! I know I need to make final decisions on some things like flowers, centerpieces, card basket.  I’m terrible at making decisions and will admit that I tend to wait until the last minute to make a decision.  I mean, what if I see something that is an even better idea on Weddingbee after I’ve already bought something – ahh!

I still have 92 things left to do on my list. 153 things if you count the daily "BREATHE!" Sometimes I do that one a few times.

Breathe – I might need to add that one to my to-do list.  Although, I think my fiance tells me that about every 5 minutes.  Like the time I glued my hand to the tile floor.  Or when 12 members of my family from the Netherlands thought they would join us for our weeklong honeymoon in Miami…

Breathing is VERY important!

I have to tell myself on occasion to do so. Just watch, these last 58 days or so will fly by super fast!

PS: I am ready! BRING IT ON!!

Way too much stuff but I live abroad and a lot of it will be rushed in the last 3 weeks when I get to NY because I can’t get it done here, including getting my dress altered! Uh-oh…

My top priority right now is to get in touch with my florist/decorator, who I think doesn’t like me and/or is ignoring me.

I’m FINALLY getting my invitations out tomorrow… I know… I’m so bad! We had a major hiccup in getting them… which is a whole other frustrating story… but we finally have them and we are putting them all together tonight and sending them out!

Then… on to the next projects. We’re finalizing the menu, song list and firming up details with the light guy this week.

RSVP’s have started coming in!! I know doing my own calligraphy on the Placecards will be time consuming, so I’ve started doing names as the RSVP’s com back, then I’ll just add the table numbers when the seating arranagements get finalized.  Had my second dress fitting on Saturday, and it’s almost perfect! yay!

This week’s goal – menus and programs!

My RSVPs are sloooowwwwly coming in. I’ve had one returned one (and the guest swears that’s the right address) and another one that has mysteriously gotten lost in mail space(???). So it doesn’t give me too much faith in the USPS.

Next up is decorating the gigantic cupcake tree, finding shoes and jewelry, and putting together favor bags. Plus about 100 other things…

My RSVPs are slowly coming in as well. I actually sent out a reminder email last Friday to those that I haven’t received any card or notice from. Hopefully this gives them a kick in the butt since the deadline is next Monday.

As of today we are at 131 Yes, 49 No and 109 left to respond.

This past weekend we did accomplish a lot =). We got my shoes, our rings, my Maid/Matron of Honor dress, shoes and jewelry. We also worked on a few DIY tasks… I am getting even more excited!

Mine are slowly trickling in as well… I get excited when I get the mail every day! 🙂 I really just have to finish up a lot of my small DIY projects that are in various stages of completion…eek!
