How are things going with you so far, how are you feeling? I’m feeling like I have NO TIME. I have two weddings next month, a graduation party this month, I’m having 2 bridal showers, SO and are going to a 3-day horror convention at the end of September…..I feel like I’m going to have no time for myself whatsoever and it’s kind of freaking me out a bit. Although, since I have bought my dress (back in November) I’ve lost 25 lbs! I can’t wait to try it on for my fitting next month! 

How is Fiance, family and friends? Everything seems to be going smoothly. He finally designed all of the invites, and is printing them out tomorrow along with the RSVP’s. Envelopes came yesterday so we’ll be stuffing those soon and they’re be going out by the end of this month.

Scale between 1-10 (1 for behind and 10 for done) how far do you feel in the planning process and why? 4 but in reality probably closer to a 7 or 8. We have pretty much all of the major stuff done, now it’s piddly crap.

What did you accomplish last month?

Booked the DJ, Picked flowers, invites were designed.

What are you trying to accomplish this month? 

Cake, tasting is on the 11th. FH needs to buy his suit and get the other guys ordered. Get the remaining supplies for our centerpieces and find my girls another gift (I’m thinking of a clutch).

How are things going with you so far, how are you feeling? So far things are okay.  I did get upset last night because I started thinking about little things like stupid place cards and how I was gonna make them.  I never wanted to do a seating chart but the lady at the venue seems to think it will make things easier on guests and I agree after going to a wedding and not being able to find a seat.  I just don’t wanna do it and I’m emotional because groomy is out of the country on business.  I miss him.  I want him and our macbook air home now.  lol!  FaceTime has been a life saver though.  

How is Fiance, family and friends? FI is doing well and he’s still calm as a cucumber.  That’s his style, lol.  When he gets back from the business trip we will have less than two months to go.  We still need to get some big things done but he’s not worried.  He actually told me to take a few days off and just veg.  Family is EXCITED and so are our friends — invites went out and three friends said they got them.  Now I’m excited because RSVPs should start coming in.

Scale between 1-10 (1 for behind and 10 for done) how far do you feel in the planning process and why? I’d say we’re about a 7 or 8 still.  Maybe a 7.5 because we still need a cake but I think we found it, still need rings, tux rentals, alterations, etc.  I don’t even wanna do the list, lol.  Still recovering from my anxiety attack last night x_x

What did you accomplish last month?

I made a post about it!  http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/mid-july-update

What are you trying to accomplish this month? 

Cake, Tuxes, Rings, ceremony music, wedding party gifts (my side is done, lol YAY ME)

@actime:  Yeah, I don’t want that to happen.  I was thinking we’d do place cards and a seating chart to avoid it.  I don’t want anyone to be confused about where to sit so I’ll suck it up and do it.  Groomy and his mama plan to help me with it.  But it’s something that can’t be done until after RSVPs are in.  So I guess we shall see.

RSVP count will also help determine the # of tables we need I guess.  We’re thinking we’ll need 8 but we may need up to 10.  We shall see!

@dancindiva:  *hugs* you will be okay!!

How is Fiance, family and friends? Fiance is good, although he could be a bit more helpful and more understanding of what I have to do. But on the other hand, he has been there when I’m feeling hmmm… crappy and stressed.
