Still feeling zen about the wedidng but I feel you about getting addresses from the in laws. Future Mother-In-Law sent me a nonsensical email with every adress formatted differently and then Fiance was ZERO help because he doesn’t know the names of anyone’s kids/wives.

For some reason I’m not stressed out at all….I think it’s probably going to all hit me like the week before. I’m just anxious for it to be here!!!

@Ellabellaxo: My fiance is the same way! He’s not too close with a lot of his extended family so when I asked how to address the envelopes he had no clue.

My stress comes in waves – this past week we did our floral order, finalized the invitation design (DIY!) and purchased the cylinder vases for our centerpieces.  The big things left to do are printing/assembling/mailing the invites, booking my hair stylist (waiting back on one more quote), and getting favors/out of town gifts.

The thing that’s been stressing me out the most is the money aspect.  It seems like all of the big items are coming due at once, and although I’ve tried to save it’s definitely still overwhelming.  And tomorrow is March….so officially two months away!

Oh, and I forgot – the knot checklist totally freaks me out as well.  I developed my own with a much more realistic timeline.  It’s still scary but at least it’s organized how I like it!

Same here, I thought I was all over it and I probably am…but I still have anxiety that I am gonna forget something critical or run out of time 🙁 I wish I had more help.

Ah I am stressed and SO EXCITED ladies!!!!!! 3 months from today for me!!! I have all my invites at home and I am so excited to be able to put them together and mail them out in the next 2 weeks! I can’t wait to start getting the RSVP’s back! I need to do another hair trial at a different salon since my first one was horrible, the men are getting their tuxes fit Saturday, and we are ordering favors in a few weeks as well. I can’t believe it is coming SO fast!!!!

I’ll say. I’m soooo nervous that I’m going to forget something and the days just tick down…..

@superplannerbee: Me too. I’m so bad at asking for help, but it doesn’t make it easier for everyone to be so far away.

I finalized our invites on Saturday, so that was a huge relief.  They are stamped and ready to be sent out!  Fiance and I had a little argument over them (he didn’t review his list like he said he did, so I had to redo 20 of his guests due to the Mr. & Mrs/Family being wrong.)  So I am HAPPY to see these babies get mailed!!  Boys got fitted this weekend, so now I just need to print the programs!
