I ordered our invitations, started working on our programs, started working on a day of timeline, and continued searching for ceremony songs. Oh and I mailed our music to my uncle who’s singing during the ceremony. Oh and I also started looking for flowergirl gifts and Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts..I guess I did a lot more than I thought this weekend.

So many date twins! I don’t feel so alone anymore, lol.

I am trying to finish the invites this weekend – I slacked big time last weekend. Also my dad is driving me to Connecticut to help pick out a cake (he’s a good sport). Mix that in with a bunch of unfinished DIY projects and apartment hunting and there’s my Saturday and Sunday. Hitting the 100 day mark was a little scary, there seems to be so much to do and so little time!

I am headed to visit my parents for two weeks (well, actually, there will be a weekend vacation with Mom in there, but most of the time will be spent at my parents’/with family), and I’m planning to do a lot. We’re getting married in her town, so she’s been my go-between.

– Fiance snd I have a pre-marriage counseling session this weekend. (*rolls eyes* Whatecer, it’s a requirement.)
– I need to make an appointment to get my dress altered!!
– I have invites to assemble, address and send. (The post office employees there are SO much nicer than here!)
– Mom, the minister, and I will be headed to the venue to discuss logisitcs and things… especially since they are under new management now and no one bothered to tell the people with events booked. Thank goodness my mother lives in the area and saw an article about it in the newspaper!
– I also have a bazillion questions to ask a variety of people on behalf of my photographer.
– I may check in with the cake lady, to see if there’s anything she needs/wants to know.
– I need a haircut, and am considering going to the salon where I’ve booked my wedding appt, just so we can make sure I will have enough hair to style by the time October arrives. lol

Whew. Going to get a lot accomplished on my “vacation”!

Hoping to knock out our flowers.  (fingers crossed)

Also working on the last 2 inserts for the pocket fold invites, envelope liners, belly bands, addressing envelopes, etc. etc.

The to-list seems to be ever-growing.

I’ll be addressing my invititations, big task but I couldn’t think to pay someone else that kind of $ to do it for me. We’ll also be finializing our rehearsal dinner plans (hopefully) and ordering our rings. So many small details to go…yikes.

Last weekend I dropped off my invitations for the calligrapher to address, ordered my veil, bought jewelry to wear with my dress, and booked the wedding night hotel for Fiance and I. This weekend I have my first hair and make-up trial and plan to finalize the rehearsal dinner menu with FIL’s and Fiance 🙂

Addressing envelopes, wrapping invitations in beautiful but idiosyncratic eco-friendly twist ribbon, getting Fiance to stamp our invitations and RSVP postcards, buying postage, making bags for my girls for my upcoming bachelorette weekend, and finishing up miscellaneous painted signs. I love the invitation assembly process, but wow does it have a lot of components! Ooh, and on the fun side, we had our engagement shoot last week (one of my oldest and closest friends is our photographer).

Can’t believe we are 3 months out, it’s exciting! I’m waiting on getting the envelopes back from the caligrapher and I’m working on assembling the pocket folds, almost done with those…finishing up the centerpiecs (five more ribbon topiaries to make, and then assembling all 24 of them) working on the table numbers, working on framing the family wedding photos, working on the ceremony with our officiant, tasting next weekend, making flower kissing balls for the ceremony aisle…….fun stuff!

This weekend we will be finishing the invites to get ready to mail out. We have addressed them they just need postage. I am having my friend play around with my hair to see if she can do the style I want. We will be attaching tags I made for our favors and we will start attaching fall berries to our center pieces. Ugh, I think thats it!

Moving. I am trying to get all of my stuff out of my old apartment there is little room in his condo so it has been quite a chore (been in my own apartment apartment for a long long time). Won’t get my invitations until Monday when I do my next dress fitting. So maybe there will be no wedding planning this weekend…wow.

Invites for me too – we didn’t do a STD, so I need to get them out by the end of next week (hopefully!!).  Also going to the salon to pay off my dress (it came in last week) and hopefully a little shoe shopping!
