We are a little behind, but playing catch up.  We have to make a final decision on our cake (cheesecake or regular cake) and I am still trying to decide if I want to bite the bullet and hire a florist or just do the flowers myself.  Have to put a deposit on our officiant and I am in the process of ordering the paper for our invites.  Man, it looks bad, but we should be able to wrap most of this up this week or next.

Lot’s of the same.  I’m deciding on flower girl dresses, shoes and accessories for myself and the bridesmaids, arranging appointments with the stylist, choosing attendant gifts and brainstorming centerpiece ideas.  Haven’t talked with the florist yet or decided on invites (still hoping to come up with a creative yet inexpensive DIY design), maybe we need to get crackin’?

Stuffing, stamping, addressing, and mailing invitations.  And applying for our passports – done and done!!!!!!  Yay for me and the FI!

Yeah, when are you all doing your invitations?

I am worried about mine! Iam hoping to order the cardstock I use this week.. I plan on getting them printed myself locally and then stamping them, so it might take a while longer than just ordering them already made.

I’d also like to get my groom’s and his groomsmen suits picked out!

For me…hopefully (finally) registering and checking out our potential rehearsal dinner spot!

I ordered my invitations waaay back in November. We thought they’d take longer than they did.  We just sent them out on my lunch break today.  Our date is May 1, but the hotel the guests are staying in only has the rooms blocked off till March 1, so the invitations had to go out a little early (there’s an enclosure card w/ lodging info included).

We’ve got the invitations printed and ready to stuff, the rehearsal dinner venue booked and the bridesmaid gifts purchased… but no florist or officiant!  I’m trying to convince myself that it will all get done!

Hmm to do this week: work on bridesmaids gifts (I have to sew, yikes!), design table numbers, pick out prelude music for organists, pick out music for Rehearsal Dinner musicians, start addressing envelopes if they come.

That is all I’m planning on this week! Just designed the invites this weekend for may 29 wedding, so if you haven’t done them you are not alone – don’t worry! Mine are super simple, just black text on white cardstock, and then one Bridesmaid or Best Man and I will screen print a design on each one.

I made about half of the table numbers this weekend. next weekend, I’m going to try to finish up the invitations, which includes filling in the # of reserved seats, putting a stamp on the response card, putting on the belly band, and wax sealing 100 invitations. Yikes! Oh yeah, and putting on the labels and stamps onto the regular envelope, too. Perhaps this may take longer than a weekend… 😉

This week I’m working on designing the invitations.  Right now I’m looking for fonts to use.  I’m mailing out invitations March 22nd with a RSVP date of April 23rd.
