Date Twin!  I too am behind on the invites.  I have them, but they are just sitting there.  I think I just needed a few weeks off.  We are starting them tonight! But, we’ve been saying that for three weeks.

I got the glass tealight/votive holders at Ikea.  They were super cheap.  They came in packages of four and each glass holder was seperated by a cardboard ring (3 rings in each pack).  I am making napkin rings out of those.  Thirty down only 70 more to go. So, yes…. I’m a slacker. There are about 5 other projects I haven’t even started. I just keep hearing “you have time” but that is rapidly becoming a false statement.

Yep. I really need to get crackin’ on addressing my invites, looking into hair extensions, emailing the girl who’s making my bouquet, finishing my MOH’s strassed shoes, making sure Fiance and his Bridesmaid or Best Man get suits, making Out of Town bags… the list goes on.

I think the only thing we’re slacking on right now (actually, more like Fiance is slacking.. I give him ideas and he says “yeah that sounds good” but doesn’t do anything about it!) are the groomsmen gifts.   My invites are all done and about half have been sent out already.  I’ll be giving out the invites to the coworkers by the end of this month.  I’ve already been getting a decent stream of RSVPs from friends and family.  I’ve got a ton done and right now I’m kind of just chilling out.

Another date twin here! We actually sent invites out a week ago, but by no means are we over achievers. A) I’m just antsy to know what we’re dealing attendance-wise and B) we’re doing everything online so it’s not as if I was slaving away with a calligraphy for weeks on end.

Things NOT done:

ordering cake/finalizing menu/wine list

playlist/sound system rental

his suit/ring

excersing enough so my dress fits 🙂

getting officiant/writing ceremony/figuring out ceremony sound

Blah.

OMG I have zero motivation. I’m getting ready to work on corner rounding the inserts for our invitations and then tomorrow night two of my bridesmaids are coming over to help me put them together. My step dad is addressing our envelopes because he’s a calligrapher so at least I don’t have to worry about that

Oh wow.  So I haven’t even looked for a wedding dress yet, invites aren’t ordered or selected, let alone addressed and sent out, and no wedding bands yet.

However we do have the Cakes, Church, Reception site and caterer, and flowers for church.  Oh, and the photographer.  Still need to do the engagment and bridal sessions for that…ugh.  Only one attendant each, Maid of Honor and Best Man.  It’s up to Maid/Matron of Honor to pick out the dress she wants (pending approval), of course she hasn’t done that yet.

Now I’m a bit worried…haven’t even touched any of the details!

I just wrote out my addresses the other night ….i have 75 guests and it took a hour. It was not bad actually but I like my own hand writing so I did them all myself. Mailing them 8/1! Good luck to you all in getting them done.

I’ve been pretty lazy lately.. LoL.  I didn’t do anything wedding related for a few weeks.  I still have to make our programs & menus, get his ring, and order the decorations for the gazebo.  I FINALLY finished up our Out of Town bags tonight… I’ve been working on them for MONTHS, but they’re pretty amazing, if I do say so myself.  I hope everyone enjoys them.

We’re still working on our ceremony wording & vows.  I also haven’t picked my jewelry or my maids’ jewelry.  *sigh* Always something to do… LoL!  I plan to knock out a ton of stuff over the next couple of weeks & then maybe I can relax again for a bit.

@MrsTimmy:  Congrats on the new home!  I’d say that’s a legit excuse for falling a bit behind!  :o)  And yes, you just reminded me… My diet is also off track, ughh.  Oh well… that’s what Monday is for, right?  A brand new start, lol.
