So it’s 17 days until the Big day! Yayyyyy
I still have to finish place cards for guests, finish gift baskets for out of town guests at the hotel, go for 1 or 2 more dress fittings- ya I know – pay the DJ, pay the florist & finish paying the venue!
My son’s are coming in town to walk me down the aisle since my dad passed away last year. I can’t wait to see them.
My Mom has been a great help with everything – relieves alot of the stress. Thanks Mom!
I’m way excited and the day is coming up real fast!

Yay! Sounds like you have it all under control. Wish I could say the same……. LoL. Working on it! I have place cards to complete as well. I also have to finalize the music choices for the ceremony & also figure out our ceremony wording. AND… I have to rethink my decor for the ceremony. There’s another ceremony 2hrs before ours at the same location… so I’m not sure if we’ll have time to set up everything the way I want :-/

Maybe contact the ppl whose ceremony is before yours & see if they want to split the cost or you can get pots of mums & put bows around them in the colors you are using to make it yours & the mums are in season & are inexpensive.
We also have to write out vows – I’m not sure where to start but will figure it out.
What are your colors? I’m going with Black tuxes, silver vest & tie with hot pink rose boutineriers & girls will be in the color Plum with flowers in all shades of purple & some hot pink.

16 days girls!!! How is everything coming? I have to give a final head count to the caterer tomorrow (still chasing down 2 couples) and final payments are due Monday! We leave next Friday for Florida from Texas to spend the wedding week relaxing with our families! I can’t believe it’s coming on us so soon but I am SO ready for it. I also can’t wait to wear my dress for more than 10 minutes 😉

I’m kind of quietly freaking out…. I can’t believe it is only 2 weeks away!!! I just did the seating chart and it is as close to done as I’ve had it, we have our final payment due next week and I made a big master list for myself that tells me what to do each day until the big day. I sort of spread everything out as much as possible so I don’t get overwhelmed. I’m super exciting but still waiting for it to hit me….

I know exactly how you feel! Although our seating chart is still not finalized and i’m not so quietly freaking out…..yikes!!

Yay, now I can check the 10 day weather report! So far so good….
I’m so relieved to have finally given our venue the final guest count and payment. No more dealing with guest drama.
I still have little things to do here and there and next week I’m on vacation so I hope to relax as much as possible and sleep as much as possible, or try to anyways!
I know some things will go wrong, but such is life, I’m trying my hardest to be prepared, but you know how it goes, if I want God to laugh….

Aaaaggggghhhhh I am so distracted and scatterbrained right now! I have one more day of work and I cannot focus AT ALL, please tell me I’m not the only one!
Post # 28
You are NOT the only one! All I can do is look at the clock…and I know I have 8 more hours tomorrow to get through too!
I’m pretty stressed out right now, and I feel like if I was off work I’d be less stressed and more in control.

I had to give final count yesterday – we are at 103 ppl!
Why can’t people be considerate and respond if they are coming or not!
Some peopl respoonded with more people than were invited! really ?
Some ppl have not responded so we are setting an extra table just in case, we still pay per person for setting the table and will pay night of for the rude extras that didn’t respond.
At this point I am stressed to the max! I will be going out with my girls Saturday during the day and for sure going for drinks later!
On another note – I’m excited and my dress is beautiful, my grown kids are coming in town, my family weill be in town and I will be having the sweet table I wanted with all the Italian baked goods! Yes – I’m Italian.
Thanks for listening to me vent.

Freaking out here…
Was supposed to pick up my dress last weekend – not sure what they did at the last alterations appt because the dress fits funny and scrunches up in the waist when I’m standing! So I’m supposed to go pick it up tomorrow – hopefully its fixed if its not I will go balistic.
Told myself I wouldnt check the weather until 2 days before because the weather around here is so unpredicatble.. so I gave in today and checked the weather
the next 7 days – upper 60s – low 70s – sunny and Saturday October 6th – HIGH OF 56 low of 38 and 60% chance of rain
SO needless to say I need to stop worrying about things I cannot control? I’m on a short fuse as well.. I just want this over and done with 🙁
