I dropped my invites in the mail yesterday! Waiting for RSVPs so I can make a seating chart! I have a system set up…I have the centerpieces with table nameson a table lined up and then I will write an escort card out and put it next to a table.

On the fence about making ceremony programs. I know they get tossed but still…

Have done nothing further then booking the DJ…don’t know what I’m doing music-wise at all! Really procrastinating!

Woot! I’m so excited y’all.  We’ve had a hiccup with our invites. My goal was to send them out today,  but I kept putting off buying a design on Etsy.  I finally paid for it on Feb 21 and the design time was supposed to be 2-4 day.  Yeah, i  still haven’t gotten them.  If they aren’t done by Monday,  I’ll go ahead with printing the backup invites off Amazon Print and attempt to get an Etsy refund. This is my fault for delaying so long. Thankfully Fi hasn’t said I told you so.  He wanted the invites designed by January 30, but I wanted to wait until after the cruise and our engagement photos.  Oh the joy of a short engagement. 

Thankfully I have the labels printed and postage purchased.  I’m just waiting on the actual invites.

eurasianbee :  Are you planning a long cermony with different elements such as readings etc? becuase if it will be short then dont bother.  My planner told us right off the bat to not even bother because she always ends up having to take them home in her car.

midgy86 :  I’m 99% sure we are not going with ceremony programs! I really hate wasting paper and I can already see drama happening (My Future Mother-In-Law hates FFIL/Step Mother-In-Law and will probably be mad StepMil’s name is listed under parents).

We have a simple ceremony with one reading.

 

Update: We have 70 Yes’s back and 4 no’s 🙂

About 30 or 40 RSVPs left.

Time really is flying!! I’ve done a lot, but i feel like there are so many little details still to wrap up.

I had my hair/makeup trial, my bridal shower, and my fittings. Invites went out, received about 2/3 of the responses back so far.

Still need to write the day-of schedule, work on music list for DJ, get a few more decor things, get our wedding bands, and book the honeymoon!

We have procrastinating guests lol.  Only about a dozen have responded so far.  We just realized though that most of our guests are family and the RSVP thing is not really a thing in New Husband in either family,  so they maybe aren’t realizing we actually do want rsvps.  We are going to call family and friends who don’t respond by the deadline,  April 14, to see if they are coming.

My dress came in last week from China and it’s almost a perfect fit,  I’m so excited!

Also, planning for the bridal tea the Wednesday before the wedding are continuing and looking adorable. 

I’m in the process of receiving aliexpress decor items. I got the photobooth props today and they are so cute. We’ve started making huge paper flowers for the photobooth/ring ceremony backdrop. 

Caterer is booked,  hair and makeup are tentatively booked. 

Honeymoon is booked and ready to go.  

TBH,  we haven’t given much thought to our ring ceremony (thats our public ceremony since the actual wedding will be private). We have asked someone to conduct it and nieces to throw flower petals when me and fi walk in.  But we need to pick out a couple of hymns,  ask 2 people to lead prayers,  and decide if we want to say anything. It’s really quick thing though,  I’ve budgeted 20-25 minutes for it so we don’t really have a lot of time to say much.

I have it easy! We’re going to City Hall with our parents, my son, and my two sisters. Then dinner downtown and a hotel staycation. We did hire a photgrapher to document the day and take pics of us arond the city. We’re having the honeymoon next summer.
