I am a November 7 bride!  I feel like I have so much stuff that I need to do, but all of the big stuff is done. In fact, we will have envelopes by this week and then the invites are going out.  SCARY!

My invitation designer started really flaking out there at the end, so I’m not getting my invites until this weekend, maybe next monday. 🙁 Is it ridiculously late for me to be sending them out? Those invites have been my main stress for awhile now. I’m scared to check my registries. What if no one buys anything? Not that I care about that… but it would mean… that no one is coming!! My biggest fear!

Fiance and I are assembling our invites this week.  Hopefully will have them out soon.  Then I can start stressing about other stuff.

@ laylabelle – I’m a Nov 7 bride and haven’t sent out invitations either.  They are finished but I thought that more than 2 months might be too early.  I don’t think you’re late at all!!

We have most of the big stuff done too but I just started freaking out about my growing to do list!!!!

We are picking up our invitations tomorrow!  Yay!  They should go out next week.  All the major planning is done and we are steadily checking off DIY projects.  I am ready for it to be here, but I hate the fact that we are in the stage where all the big checks have to be written.

Have you done your dress fittings yet?  I am holding off for a couple more weeks before I start them.  Am I waiting too long?  I just need the dress hemmed and the seams in the shoulder shortened.

Yay! Good to know I’m not the only one. I figured I have to send them out by mid September at the LATEST, that’s eight weeks til the wedding, and I gave an RSVP date that will be six weeks from the time the invites go out, so I think I’m okay.

I’ve had one dress fitting so far, and I’ll have at least two more. I feel like I started too early, but I can’t stand not having it in the works. I panic too easily!

We’re chugging along through things – though it feels like there’s still so much left!  A month ago I was telling people that the big stuff was all handled already.. but man, these little things really add up. 

I think our invites will be going out during the second week of September.  Assuming we get them done on time!

Nervousness has set in!!!  I’m also a November 7th bride and am starting to have nightmares about the wedding.  This is totally unfounded because all has been smooth sailing thus far.  The invites are at the calligrapher and will be ready for the mail September 1st.  whoo-hoo! 

I must say that I am nervous about the RSVP stuff. I’m hoping that people don’t add their own guests.  But at least we can nail down a number for the caterer and pay yet another large bill 🙂  Can’t wait for the honeymoon!!

I’m having nightmares too! Last night I dreamed that a friend came to tell me that my Maid/Matron of Honor had backed out of my wedding, because she had double booked herself and was already going to be in another wedding that same night – of course, in my dream, she’s telling me this AT my wedding. Lord. Like that would even happen!! Still shook me up, though. Already had one Maid/Matron of Honor back out (my sister!).

Our invites went out about a week ago.  Responses have been slowly trickling in ever since.  I’m not really nervous, but I am starting to feel a little stressed about all the stuff that needs to get done.  I have had nightmares lately too – mostly involving my hair.  Somehow it winds up looking like my grandma’s hair and in order to fix it my Future Mother-In-Law has my Future Sister-In-Law do french braids.

Woohooo! I received my invites last night! Now I just need to address all of the outer envelopes, decide on and order the inner envelopes, address those and stamp them off and away they go!!!

After that… I feel kind of like I’m at a standstill.

Invitations are out and now the replies are coming in. I will feel better when the RSVP date is here. We made our date earlier (September 25) so we could send out more invites (if we were able to). We will definitely have 250 guests.
