@bonsai_spork: ditto, minus the gourds.

Is anyone else having a week from hell? I need to know I’m not alone.

@teacup: Week from hell, I’m right there with you.  Work was a bitch, and on top of everything else I’m coming down with a cold. FAN-freakin-TASTIC…  Better now than in 2 weeks I suppose.

Tonight-DATE NIGHT!

Tomorrow- Pick up Maid/Matron of Honor dress, pick up groom’s wedding gift (It’s done I just need to pick it up.), buy chocolates for favor boxes, go to final fitting.

Sunday- SLEEP!!

@klachance18: OMG, Fiance caught a cold on Tuesday and I’m nursing mine right now – nightmare!

I’m hoping next week will be better, I’m in the single digit countdown…

Ugh, so much to do!

Tonight:  Go to Home Goods and try to find large lanterns for ceremony.

Tomorrow: Go to venue to meet with day-of coordinator, decorator, florist, and to buy all of the wine.  Follow up with antique shopping in search of old wood and more lanterns!

Sunday:  Finish boutonnieres, stain frames, finish chalk board menu. 

…that can’t be it…

haha.

@teacup: You are so not alone. On top of my crazy week and bad groomsmen, I feel like I’m coming down with a cold and my Fiance has a bad head cold right now. WHY WHY WHY. WHY BEFORE THE WEDDING?

@.twist.: Glad to know I’m not alone, although it stinks to be super stressed right now. Where’s our pre-wedding blissout? I’m ready whenever it wants to hit me 🙂

I saw your nightmare Groomsmen post. * HUGS *

First, Congrats Ladies we are on the home stretch (YAY!!)

I’m going to purchase our wine, memorial candle, deliver our wedding things to our coordinator, researching paper goods for our ceremony programs, and Bridesmaid or Best Man gift bags (and decorate them). After that, I am doing absolutely nothing but watching FOOTBALL!!!

I’m having a new hair trial (first was a disaster), then get stuff for a card box, meet with the photographer on Sat, work on seating charts + escort cards, and finish the bridal shower thank you notes.

search in their little search field for “Lantern” I got some neat  little pagoda looking ones for 3.50 each, they’re pretty decent quality for the price.
