Yep, 10/15 here! Our reply-by date was 9/15 and we’re still chasing down a lot of RSVPs 🙁 My mom has been SO helpful in planning this whole wedding, but the RSVPs and other last minute details are really stressing her – and us – out. So on the one hand, I’m so excited! It’s almost here! My fiance and I got a lot done this weekend, which felt good, but I’m definitely stressing about the remaining to-dos as well.

Less than three weeks to go until our 10/8 wedding date. I’m stressed out! I have a weekend getaway planned in a beautiful state park next weekend. It’ll just be my dog and I. (FI will be having his bachelor party.) Should be very therapeutic. Can’t wait!

10/22/16 here!

I’m excited! Our rsvp deadline was yesterday, and we are still waiting on about 13 people, so I’ll be chasing them down this week.  It feels like I still have about a million things to do, but my wedding to-do list doesn’t look too bad.

10/1! Less than two weeks to go!  Making up gift bags for guests staying at the hotel, firming up seating arrangements and need to print out the escort cards, need to get in final counts for the rehearsal dinner, wedding dinner and chair covers, and meet with our Officiant this week!

8 more work days to go before the big day-I wish I could have taken off from work the week prior to the wedding but I only took thurs and fri off.

it is coming up fast!

STRESSING OUT!! Haha. 10/16 bride here! Having dofficulty getting all the RSVPs as well 🙁 Trying not to let the stress overshadow my joy to be getting married, but it is hard. One of the biggest things on my to do list are the bridesmaid gifts.

 

This is the Perfect chance to get some advice from you ladies! I was originally paying for my bridesmaids’ hair as part of their gift and arranged for a stylist to come and do it on the morning of the wedding. Well, very long story short, that is no longer an option and I have cancelled with that stylist, explained the complicated situation to the girls and told them to go ahead and make their own hair arrangements (DIY or with their own hair stylist) since we are getting closer to the date! They understood and are fine with it. So, that means that all I have for their gift is a monogrammed robe and a necklace. My question is, for the 3rd item should I buy them each an individualized gift as if I were shopping for them for their birthday OR should I include a $50 visa gift card to offset the costs of now having to pay for their hair (should they choose not to do it themselves) since I had originally said I would. What would you like better if you were my bridesmaid?

lilyflowers :  Hey date twin!! Aaah it’s so close! 🙂 Sending warm wishes your way. Same here about taking time off from work ahead of the wedding. I would love more time off on both sides of the day! So much to do and after, so much decompressing will be needed, haha…

We are eloping internationally and getting married on 10/5. It’s only us and I’m still freaking out. I have nightmares about forgetting something very important, losing my dress, having my makeup and hair ladies do a terrible job. It’s endless. I’m so glad I’m not having a big wedding, I couldn’t handle it. LOL
