We share the same wedding date! πŸ™‚ Congratulations… enjoy the last week and a half despite all the last-minute details!

I made my own programs using Adobe Illustrator. I think there are a lot of free programs (just search Google!) that will allow you to create a program as well. Make sure to send a draft to your officiant as well.. I was sooo glad I did, because he realized a couple mistakes I had made. Better to find out before printing 160 programs off! πŸ™‚

Good luck and let me know if I can help!!

Woohoo!  I’m Oct 2 too!  I feel like I have a million things to do.  I ordered my programs today and my favors should arrive this week along with my bridemaids gifts.  I still need gifts for my parents…sheesh.  I have another fitting Friday.  Thankfully I will be off all of next week.  Good luck ladies!

@Miss Kermie: Things Remembered is the perfect place for quick parent’s gifts! I went with a very nice 8 x 10 frame that I had engraved with mine and my fiance’s name and date of the wedding. We put in an old picture of us and wrote a note saying we would replace it with a wedding photo.

I know the picture frame thing may be over done, but it works for our parents because they’ll literally keep it on display for the rest of their lives.. .I just know it πŸ™‚

October 2 bride here as well. I am currently FREAKING out over the fact that the weather forecast is calling for RAIN! πŸ™ Please tell me I’m being a nut and it’s too soon to tell. I normally would think that maybe it will change…but it’s actually calling for rain for like the days leading up to and after the wedding! πŸ™

Feeling like there a million things to do and didn’t want to be in this state of mind at this point of the process.  My sister got in a major car accident over the weekend, so I lost that weekend of planning.  Fortunately, she’s ok, but it’s shifted gears completely.

What’s left:

-cake details, cocktail hour centerpieces (15 tables – eek!!), table numbers (seriously STILL no clue), bathroom baskets (can’t believe I haven’t done these yet), oh – and somehow busting out pomanders for my aisle πŸ˜‰

 

@sarahd07: OH NO – I’m crossing my fingers for you!  Is your venue indoors?

Wow, a bunch of date twins!

This morning, I printed out my program and poem to go with the wishing well cards guestbook I’m doing. Other than that, I’m pretty much set – just little things to do. Mom and I are taking a shopping trip early next week to get ribbon and other supplies for the bouquets and bouts we’re making (ordered bulk flowers online that will be delivered next Thursday).

There’s also random things I need to get or do, like buy gel insoles for my shoes (they’re not uncomfortable unless I’m standing for awhile… which I will be during the ceremony!) and a stick-on bra for my honeymoon (Convertible Jumpsuit from Victoria’s Secret = LOVE, but doesn’t work with my convertible bra!), paint my toenails, etc.

Basically, though, for the next week and a half, I just get to work on schoolwork (yay) and try to relax as much as possible. Eek!

@oracle: LOL…NOPE! We have an outdoor ceremony planned and then a tented reception. So we’ll be fine for the reception. And we DO have a back up plan for the ceremony but it won’t be as nice! *pout*

I’m currently frantic to finish testing for a raise at work so I haven’t been able to think of anything wedding related.  My mom keeps telling me not to put things off until the last minute, despite my request taht she stop mentioning anything wedding related.  I still haven’t picked up my dress, had a hair trial, printed programs, or done a ton of other stuff.  Oh well, it will get done.

@sarahd07: OH NO!!  I just checked the 10-day forecast and no rain is scheduled for Friday for you… let’s hope that’s the case through the weekend!!!

@oracle: Which one did you check? Both Accuweather and Weather.com say rain for Friday! πŸ™

@sarahd07: I did weather.com!  It only had a 20% for Boston, MA, but showed clear…

@leahb98: If it makes you feel any better, I have the same date and no dress!! Work has been insane, and I’m not off until the 30th. I am praying to find one this weekend.
