@L22:  How many guests are you having? I think it depends on the size of the wedding.  I’m having about 180 and am doing table numbers because there’s too many people for it to work (IMO) but for a smaller wedding it might work.

My head is still buried in the sand and I don’t for one minute believe that my wedding is less than 80 days away.

@myweddingbee:  78 days to go for me! May 3 wedding 🙂 This weekend I’m mailing our invations, meeting with the Pastor to go over ceremony details, having my hair and makeup trials. Next weekend is our first shower…so excited!! I think after the invites are sent out, all I have left is to wait for the RSVPs, put together the hotel guest bags and get the place cards printed…oh and the seating chart. Eeeek! So exciteedddd 🙂

@myweddingbee:  we are sharing the same date. Yeah! I can’t wait and I’m crossing my fingers that the weather will be nice.

Two weeks ago, on a Sunday night, I was so sick and tired of all the planning that I felt sick to my stomach. I thought if I have to do one more thing related to this wedding, I’m going to die. So, I took about a week off of anything having to do with the wedding and then got back into it.This week, I finished the wedding invites, the wedding program, had all the stuff printed with the return address and the guests addresses. Tonight, my friend and I placed the stamps on the envelopes and they are all ready to go.

I’ve been planning this wedding for so long that now I really feel like almost everything is done and we are ready to go. So happy! The only other thing remaining really is going back for my second fitting on March 21st. Oh ya, and tomorrow I’ll go shopping and check out a square cake stand.

I just can’t wait for the special day and see all the hard work I’ve put into the planning of this wedding and of course the one thing I’m really, really looking forward to is the reaction Fiance will have the very first time he sees me in my wedding dress. I told my friend if there is one picture I truly want her to get, its the one when Fiance sees me.  So exciting. I can’t wait.

You made my hair stand up when I read the title! 

Aaah, the wedding dreams. We’re doing Destination Wedding so I keep dreaming we get there and forget something important. Mostly my dress. My dress hasn’t arrived yet and now they pushed back the date to March 21. My date is May 2. 

Anyway, super excited especially because this winter has been brutal in Chicago and I can’t wait to get to Cancun!

  • Ordering desserts
  • Finalizing ceremony and timeline
  • Booking honeymoon
  • Gifts for parents
  • All the crafting

And lots of little things. So much to do! Feeling the pressure! Haha but I’m also excited. I just keep telling myself, “we only have to do this once!”

May 31st!! Getting excited but also nervous!

I am not an “all eyes on her” girl and now that we are getting closer I am curious how my anxiety will hold up! lol

Almost everything done. Just have to purchase the last few things, vase filler, candles, make our picture wall and alter. Have all my trials done, attire finalized and music picked out!!

I feel like date twins with you May 3 girls, although we are a bit unconventionally marrying on a Sunday so we are May 4. My question is, has anyone else been having emotional/anxiety/stress meltdowns? I had been so excited about all the planning and the wedding itself and feeling nothing but positive, and then a week ago I hit a wall. I realized we have plans in place that exceed our budget by about $1000, and all of the sudden I just started to feel overwhelmed and lose it. Our invites still aren’t out b/c my fiance is designing them and he is a procrastinator so the two factors combined just messed with my mind and I’ve been more distressed and anxious and depressed and angry and frustrated than it makes sense to be.  Anyone else having an unexpected melt down despite your normal happy and level-headed demeanor? Can’t believe it’s just 2.5 months away. CAN. NOT. BELIEVE. IT!!!!

I finally hit less than 100 days, so that’s a pretty awesome feeling. Planning-wise, I don’t have much left to do. We’re “eloping” (for lack of a better word) so planning and stress are practically nonexistent.

@amyeb25:  Agreed, I’m starting to stress (although I don’t mean to!) and it took me forever last night to get to sleep because my mind was racing.  I’m going to try to start making lists next to my bed – anything that pops in I’ll just jot it down and hopefully that will relieve a little of the “I can’t forget this!” stress.

I’m actually going to sit down tonight and make one of those lists (what can I say, I’m a list-maker! haha) and anything and everything that pops into my head re: wedding (planning, things to remember, deadlines, etc) will all be in one place.  Hopefully that will help relieve some stress and also I can prioritize and figure out what to do next!

My planner/ cousin didn’t start scheduling appointments with vendors until about a week ago so I didn’t have a florist, dj, videographer, cake designer, invitations, a hair or makeup stylist, or any rentals. Needless to say I couldn’t sleep and was driving everyone insane. I finally have contracts for most of these vendors so I feel much better now. 90 days left!
