Pretty much FREAKING out right now! Still can’t decide on music. Thank goodness one of my best friends is our DJ and a professional DJ at that so I know she is good and she assured me that I can get her all of the info the night before and she will be alright. AHHHHHH still so much to do. This weekend is FI’s Bachelor party so I plan on using all the time to craft. I have my plast fitting today and I am still 4 lbs away from goal weight and about to get my period any day! I wish it woudl just come already so I don’t have it next Saturday!!!! 🙁

@Firinne:  We’re doing speciality chocolate mendiants…way too expensive (IMO) but my parents insisted on them. Since they are paying, I said fine. I always wanted to do a candy bar, but alas…I am not. I will live vicariously through yours!

I spent 4 houses in the ER today, because I dislocated twinfo my toes after dialling down the strairs. I’m amazing apparently, Haven’t fallen down stairs in 20 years, has to be about a week before the wedding.

 

thankfully, dislocated means (according to the ER doctor) I can wear my heels, but I have to be careful on foot for the next few days.

 

Hopefully this is the last of my bad luck before the wedding. Fiancé and bear get here tomorrow. 

 

 

hope you’re all having better luck, and an easier time this last week than I am!

@Firinne:  We are doing little burlap bags of coffee beans with tags that say “The Perfect Blend 10.27.12” and a heart and the word ‘cafe’ stamped on them.   I figured they wouldn’t be a hit, so I only made enough for one per family.  I am also doing a cookie bar and on a whim bought kraft bags and printed our names and date on them and lace-punched the top. 

 

I feel like I have a million things to do, but when I sit down I draw a blank.  I only have 3 working days left, Fiance is finally on board helping, probably because he realizes how stressed I am! 

 

I keep remembering that this weekend is my last weekend before the wedding, that next week is all busy between my Bridal Shoot, the Rehearsal Dinner, etc.  Then I hyperventilate a little, I’m not worried about actually getting married, I’m just stressed out that everything won’t come together for the wedding!  Anyone else reaching the next level of stress?

 

ETA: I forgot to mention the kid’s favors I made which are little buckets of candy/bubbles/activity books/etc.

I bought the bridesmaid’s gifts today…earring to wear with their dresses… and a luxurious black waffle robe with satin trim with their first initial in white… I cringed when I saw the price…. but they have done so much for me I owe it to them…. now I want one.

I also will be getting our favors next week…. I have created a mix CD of all our favorite love songs- but since I dont have the time to copy them (100+) I have hired a local and small recording studio to duplicate the orginal…best part: THEY CAN DO IT IN TWO DAYS! woo hoo! They are even printing our images on the face in full color… only $1 each.

In other news.. one of our groomsman still hasnt ordered their tux- wont return our calls so we kicked him out. Oh well.

My hunny is having a hard time too- he lost his mom almost 10 years ago to cancer- so this whole wedding thing is getting to him. I have printed an image of her and put it in a mini charm frame to tie to my bouquet.

We spent all mornin yesterday doing wedding stuff at the venue, then spent the afternoon shopping for the honeymoon. I feel good about everything except one big thing, our DIY photobooth! It still isnt built and we havent even started on the pages for the guest book to go with it. I just have to make it through 3 days of work and then it will be crunch time!

So I  took on the task of making pomander balls out of fabric… Im making 12 of them…. I have 7 done…. my future hubby has been cutting out the fabric circles for hours…. and both him, my sister and I have been working on them for 3 days…. jeeze- Im so over them.

We ran into a hiccup- the vases I ordered online have been backordered- so I now have to hunt around for 12 vases… luckily I like a silver vase from Michaels- but I have to go to serveral to get enough.

Its crunch time- we are almost there ladies…. woo hoo!

Im still finishing up some things- but I am always busy with something in life- never time to relax. Anyways does anyone feel super broke?…(those of you paying for the wedding). I swear I feel like I have nothing left to my name… our original budget was 15k but we spent a little over 20k with our honeymoon included. We were able to save most of it but we have about 4k on a credit card right now. It makes me crazy!!!!! We wanted a unique wedding so I hope the expense is worth it…. we only have 100 guests.

yay, my hiar stylist is finally able to do my hair/makeup trial today… joy. i’m putting last minute paint touchups on some signs, combing through my ceremony to makesure there isnt anything redundant/ unnecessary.

It all feels so surreal- putting the table assignments together, finalizing songs with DJ, getting so many gifts from family and friends, having a marriage license… I’m almost tempted to get a videographer so I can go back and make sure things happen and that everything will be as amazing as planned.
