These are ours… lots of gold for 11/7 brides! 🙂 Everyone’s are so pretty!

We have them addressed and ready to go, planning to mail in the next week or so. I want to order “pretty” stamps.

Still have no members of the bridal party on my FI’s side – he’s “working on it.” And waiting for my dress to come in (next month). And waiting to do a final tasting/menu next month with the caterer. Other than that, starting to feel kinda okay abou things…

I just sent mine out this week. I have a few family members you like to think they have all the time in the world! I actually made all my invitations myself with my Photoshop program. My save the date is just 4×6 photos I had printed at Walgreens. all it cost me was $15 bucks and they gave the envelopes for free. I just bought a stamp and ink pad ($10) and dressed up the plain white envelope! So I used those same envelopes for my invitations I had them printed into a 5×7 card (.65 cents a piece for rsvp & invitations) and I made the RSVPS’s too..I had them printed on both sides into a post card size and used a postacard stamp (.24 cents vs .49cents) to have my guest send them back so I could save on purchasing more envelopes! And for my gift regisrty note I found a mason jar hole punch and bought some card stock and printed my message on it and punched the hole out!

Total cost for Save the dates,invitations RSVP’s and postage was about $175. I think I did a pretty damn good job!

one more month ladies!

 

I got 95% of all my RSVPs in. Still hunting down from a few people. I don’t get why it’s so hard to reply to an RSVP card. There’s already a stamp! Just mail it!

 

Guys finally got their suits/tuxes and all bachelor/bachelorette parties are done.

About to prepare seating chart this weekend and start working on decor details.

Gotta meet the DJ and finalize music and meet the florist and finalize flowers decor.

I think we are gonna get our marriage license next week!

My dress is currently being altered and my first fitting is about 1-2 weeks from now. I lost about 15 pounds so I’m glad I lost some weight.

Hmm..that’s all I can think of as of now. What do you all have to do still?

SarinaLove:  Omg, thank you so much. I completely forgot about our marriage license, haha! I just emailed my fiance to ask him to check his calendar for a date where we can get that done.

Here are my invitations! They went out early September and our due date for RSVPs is 10/13 but we’ve already been contacting the wild card people (out-of-towners, etc).

ah so much more to do! Waiting on about 30% of our RSVPs, and will start hunting people down tomorrow (our catering final # is due at the end of the week). 

Still working on nailing down transportation, and my hair/makeup for the day. 

Having my dress shrotened tomorrow (only remaining alterations). A few crafty projects still in the works, but almost done. 

Then we need to do seating charts, signs, etc., finish out the music list and programs and such. 

Everything? We have to do everything. At least it feels that way. Deep breaths!

SarinaLove:  Thank you! My whole wedding has a very modern feel. I am not a lace or rustic chic kinda gal haha. My sister did the illustration and helped design them with help from her graphic designer friend.

So with only a few days left…how are you guys doing??

 

I just finished the timeline and sent it to all the vendors. We finished out music and sent that out too. 

Just got my last fitting too.

 

Hmm…what’s left to do? I was gonna plan a casual friends dinner for the night before as a pre-partying party. Starting Monday, it’s going to be busy and fun!

Friends/family from out of town are flying in and we have to pick a few up.

Lots of dinners with out of towners!

Dropping off stuff to our venue and coordinators

So exciting! This week is going to be so much fun. I’m just so happy to see everyone!!!

 

Oh and I have to finalize my vows…hahah I’m half way done!
