    HOLY CRAP 99 DAYS!

    Give me another month, still too many things to do! I'm not ready!

    Bring it ON. I want this thing to happen now! Ready is an understatement!

    Totally chill, ready, not rushing, just cool as a cucumber.

    I cannot believe we’re closing in on the double digits! Where did this last year of our engagement go?!

    How are you feeling? STRESSED! I feel like I have so much to accomplish in such a small amount of time.

    Are you ready? I’m totally ready to marry Fiance but I am far from ready for our wedding. I’m going to need every last one of these 100 (holy shit, seriously 100 days?!) days to finish everything.

    What’s your biggest to-do at the moment? Right now I’m just working on some DIY stuff. Mostly paper (programs, table numbers, menus, seating chart, favor tags, DIY napkins, Out of Town door knob signs, the list goes on…). I’m expecting the last few envelopes back from the calligrapher this week so once I get those, the invites will be stamped and sent on their merry way.

    What are you 100% excited about? You mean other than marrying my best friend? ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m super excited about our faux-to-booth and apple pie wedding favors. I think both will be a huge hit with our guests.

    What is stressing you out? Money! We haven’t gotten my parents contribution yet (not getting it until September) so pretty much paying for everything upfront to be paid back so close to the wedding is insanely stressful. Note to self: When future children get married, give them the money upfront.

    I am SO EXCITED! I have to confess though, I am way behind! I still haven’t gotten invitations, so that is the major source of stress right now. And all the little details are so hard to nail down!

    How are you feeling? I feel awesome! 

    Are you ready? Mentally yes.  But there are still odds and ends to take care of.  Could we get married without programs and welcome bags?  Yes.  Do I want to?  Not really. 

    What’s your biggest to-do at the moment? Starting some decorations.

    What are you 100% excited about? Being officially married.  I already feel married, we’ve been together 4.5 years, and we live together.  And we’ve even called each other husband and wife when talking to other people.  So being able to say yes, we are married, actually married will be nice.

    What is stressing you out?  Absolutely nothing.

    I’m excited but at the same time completely over it!! LOL. I want the day to come…last for the moment and then be over!! I am having a cocktail themed wedding..it will start at 7p and the ceremony will take place at an old historical mansion and will be lit by hundreds of candles. I’m mostly excited about my beautiful maggie sottero dress, but stressed about keeping these few extra pounds off so it can fit like I want it to fit! Thankfully I know alot of people in the “industry” so we got great deals on the caterer, photographer, dj, and printing. So the “big” things are taken care of I made my consultation for my makeup appointment on yesterday and need to find time to do a consult for my hair do. This weekend I will start on the DIY table #s and favor boxes.

     

    Breath easy ladies!! We’ll be wed before we know it!

    @.twist.:  My tricks are age and experience.  I am in my 30s and I’ve been a bridesmaid in 5 weddings- held the Maid/Matron of Honor position in 2.  At this point my priorities are completely different from what they were 5 to 10 years ago.  If I were 25 I’d be freaking out with the rest of you.  But I am now completely zen.

    How are you feeling? … Excited! Less than 100 days, I can’t wait ๐Ÿ™‚

    Are you ready? … Almost all of our major stuff is taken care of already, so now it’s just the details I have to worry about, but I’ll have time for that. I do have to finish the invitations in the next week or two though.

    What’s your biggest to-do at the moment?… Finish the invitations. I’m DIYing them, and they’re half done, but I have to take my photoshop files to the printer next week.

    What are you 100% excited about? … Finally being married! (We’ve been together over 10 years.) That, and my guests’ reactions to my theme and details, since I’ve always been the black sheep of the family ๐Ÿ˜‰

    What is stressing you out? … Our baker just cancelled on us this morning, so now we have to find someone else to make us a cake ๐Ÿ™ But at least it’s just the cake… It’d be a lot harder to find a photographer at the last minute in our price range, for example.
