Oh my, I’m so behind on the invitation front, we are just doing ours now and hope it gets done in the next couple of weeks!  I’m May 28th…so I have a few extra weeks. 🙂

Hey! I can’t wait!!! We have all the invitations ready and are planning on sending them mid March! Fi and I are starting to eat really healthy and go to the gym. We pretty much have everything done, now we are just saving 🙂 We took our engagement photos Sunday and are waiting for the pics now 🙂 As for stress, I am so stressed!!! Everytime I think about the wedding my heart starts racing and I get butterflies in my stomach. It is going to come SO fast! I like your idea of the one day off of wedding stuff! We may have to do that.

I am strangely unstressed about the wedding. “A” list invites have gone out and we picked out suits for the groomsmen last weekend. I have a major planning trip next week (floral preview, tasting, bridal shower, dad’s suit, 1st fitting, hair/make up trial) so I may start freaking out then.

I wasn’t stressing, but reading you guy’s post of what you have done already is making me feel so behind…ahhh! 

We stll haven’t order the suits yet, I haven’t picked out who’s doing my makeup, and our engagement photos is not for another couple fo weeks.

Oh well…..

@EmeraldR: I have to since I’m planning from out of state. I hate using my “vacation” days to run from appt to appt.

Top of the list right now is my dress. Gotta get that done, but I expect to be wrapping it up by the end of March. Invites to go out mid-March. Fiance has to get his suit, we have to figure out rehearsal dinner, flower details, ceremony music, and reception iPod music. We’re working on favors now, and finished pre-Cana a couple weeks ago. I feel so behind!!!

I’m now having regular vivid dreams (not all wedding related though) so I know I’m stressed.  Fiance sent me a text this morning saying that I should take a night off.  For the last couple weeks I’ve done nothing but work on invitations or other wedding stuff after work. 

My first (of 4) shower is this weekend, Fiance got suits done last weekend.  My dress should arrive later next month, and I still need to find a veil. 

There’s still a long list of things that need to be done/organized, but I think we’re doing okay.  It’s definately coming up fast though.

I’m definitely feeling the stress! I reallyreally want to be done with the vast majority of things by the month before the wedding (which is May 28th). I plan to be really productive this coming weekend. I’m going to take all the time I would normally spent poking around on wedding blogs (usually an embarrassing amount of time…) and get the following tasks done:

  • stop by the post office to weigh my invite mock-up
  • finalize the invites FOR REAL, and place my printing order
  • make table numbers
  • make a Just Married banner
  • make earrings for my bridesmaids
  • design/order photo guestbook

I better not add anything more to this list, but I think I can do it!

@EmeraldR: Hey Date twin!!

Sending out the invites today! Had my first dress fitting on Friday. Buying the suits next week.  Strangely, I’m not stressed at all about the wedding. We are well within our timeline so I feel good!, but excited!
