Hello there!

We are in pretty good shape! We are buying some stuff over the weekend while in St. Louis (votives, etc.)

We are buying half of our wine at Trader Joe’s this weekend too.  Half is coming from there, and half is coming from a local vineyard.

We are STILL waiting on several RSVP’s.

We ordered linens last week.

Next week we have meetings with our officiant and our reception coordinator.

December 4 is my hair and makeup trial and my final fitting for my dress!

We still have to finalize the cake, and the beer.

I think that is it 🙂 We are getting close! How are you holding up?

omg, can you believe it’s only 38 days away!? =O

the fiance and i are driving down to el paso (our hometown, where the wedding is taking place) tonight and we’re lugging a bunch of wedding crap stuff with us to leave at our parents’ houses. i went for my first fitting last week and i go back for a second one next week, on the 3rd.

i feel like we still have so much to do, but at the same time it’s all stuff that has to wait – printing programs, seating chart, marriage license, etc. i just cannot get over how quickly it’s approaching. i’m super excited though! 😀

oh yeah, and i need to get the nye hats and favors too!

I forgot we are getting our marriage license next week too!  We do need to get hats and favors…I sort of forgot about that one.  Any ideas where to get them?  I am kicking myself for not getting them after last NYE. Ugh!

We also need to do our floorplan diagram, which has to be to the venue 10-14 days prior.  Luckily I worked as an event coordinator for three years, so I can whip that one out pretty quick, haha!

We got 5 RSVP’s in today – our due by date was November 20.  LOL.  Hopefully the rest come in over the holiday so I don’t have to make a ton of phone calls!

@Linz1231: We bought our hats and NYE favors online at Amols. I found a lot of good deals online (Party City probably has the best deals) but we bought the ones above because they were in our wedding colors.

We’ve gotten so much done lately! I had my final dress fitting, we did a walk through of the venue with the caterer and photographer, our programs are mostly made and just need to be assembled, we’ve bought all of our decor, we bought all of our gifts for BMs, GMs, and other people helping us…

What’s left: Mostly writing out lots of lists about how the ceremony and reception space are to be decorated so that the people helping us have a clear idea of where everything goes. We have some decor items to finish such as making our menu cards for the tables, signs for sparklers and the guestbook…We’ve sent a draft of our ceremony to our officiant and we need to talk to her a little more about it…need to send some lists of songs to our DJ and make sure he has all the equipment that he needs…but I think that’s about it!

As for RSVPs, our deadline is December 8th and we’ve only received about half of the RSVPs.

Just when I think I’m done, I’m not…

I have the stuff for the centerpieces (15″ martini glasses that we’re putting silver and black ornaments in and 2 light up ice cubes).  They need to be assembled, but can wait for a few weeks.  My FI’s daughter came home and tried on her dress (it fits) but needs to go to the tailor tomorrow.  We ordered the labels for the favor boxes (two attempts to DIY and I gave up) yesterday.  My biggest worry is if the cupcakes will actually fit in the boxes.  Received our Flutterfetti today, and have the hats/tiaras for midnight.  And on Wed finalized the meal for the rehearsal dinner and sent out Evites for the rehearsal. 

We talked with the guy doing the music for the church and reception today.  Still waiting for some responses – but are pretty close to a final count (date is Dec10 anyway).  I really am not sure what else there is to do.  So since I’m delusional, dont remind me of anything I’ve forgotten.

My Fiance says to me tonight “what are we doing about programs?”  Uh, nothing.  You told me we didnt need programs when I wanted to do them.  It’s 32 days before the wedding.  We’re not doing programs.
