im finishing up my mothers work friends for invitations. other than that i think i have them all sent out.
now i still have to figure out my flowers (this part is stressing me out because i want one thing and my mother wants another…. ugh the stress) still have to figure out food…. yes i still havent planned ANY FOOD!!!! im freaking out. we dont have anything in the budget for catering, so we will be doing the food….. but what? i have no idea. i origonally wanted to do pastas but our venue has limited outlets to keep things warm….. so yes my mother is leaning towards doing sandwitch rolls….. which im ok with but i loved my pasta bar more 🙁
next thing on my list is i dont have my shoes (i wanted to order pink cowboy boots but reading the reviews they run narrow and i have fat feet after having my kid…. so i need to go boot shopping. closest town is 2hrs to buy boots from…. ugh) did i mention im stressing out…. like mini panic attacks???
….. tomorrow im hoping to order my accessories with my fmil. but im freaking out about that as well as i havent gotten my dress in yet!! i havent even tried the sample on as it was WAY too small. so idk exactly what i wanna do about accessories. im gonna order a couple different things and then sell what i dont like. Dress isnt in yet…. should be here in 2 weeks (thats what they said yesterday when i called). my Fiance finally picked his groomsmen thank god! so now we can start picking out their clothing. i have no idea what to do for favors, is it ok to not have favors? the last wedding i was at i dont think they had favors…. if they did i didnt see them. ummm…. did i mention im stressing? lol

81days left! Ahh!

im going a home, outdoor, DIY, themed wedding (mad hatters tea party reception), aaaaaaaand there are so many things to think about!

my dress has arrived, but its got to be hemmed as do the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, I have my shoes, veil, tiara, garter, and jewelry (as do the BM’s). We have booked and paid  the cake, the DJ, the photographer the celebrant almost finalised our ceremony script (civil ceremony).

hubby still doesn’t have his ring, or tux nor do his groomsmen. We have finished all the bouquets bar mine and the Maid/Matron of Honor, and we are making our own aisle runner which is about half done.

we are about half way with decorations, chair sashes etc and we just bought our marquee (cheaper than hiring coz we found it second hand-used once).

The only other looming thing is booking table and chair hire for 100 people, as well as booking the Dfloor.

SO many small details are popping up now though! 

Eep! Good luck Bees!

@drod  I had my fitting last Thursday, and my makeup trial last Tuesday. I mailed our invitations last Saturday and have paid the venue. I have ordered attendant gifts for my side, but Fiance still has to tell me what he wants me to get his side. 50% of my centerpieces are done, but I’ll be finishing them this coming Sunday while Fiance is working overtime. My florist bailed and I had to re-do my contract with another one, lol…so that’s taken care of and finalized. My final fitting is schedule. I’m basically waiting for shit to hit the fan, though, like you, lol. GOOD LUCK TO US BOTH!
