Ugh. Most of our signage. Programs. Menus. Some decor elements.

Gaaah!!

  • Wedding: July 2011

I’ve gotta assemble programs, stuff welcome bags, trim place cards, buy some disposable stuff for welcome dinner (think rehearsal dinner but we invited all out of town people and made it super-informal), talk to caterer for welcome dinner.  I still haven’t made a decision on wedding jewelry but at least my mom has some options to borrow.  I was hoping I’d see a necklace I liked and it would be my wedding gift from Fiance (we are pretty open about what we want for gifts and getting those things for each other).

Next week we’re supposed to talk to the photographer and the band on the phone.  I figure we need to get our act together and get a more detailed timeline in place before talking with them – I’ve bookmarked the one from Ms. Candy Corn http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/08/13/wedding-weekend-timeline/

@janie-janie:

THIS made me LOL at my desk, mostly because that is exacty me. 

“I’m so lazy, I’d rather donate money to charity than stuff almonds into fussy little bags.”

This also prompted a LULZ mental image of someone literally fumbling almonds into a shiesty little bag. Still laughing!

Wedding: Aug 20th

Stuff left to do:

  • pick up my dress/veil (which I do today after work eeeep!)
  • take my ring to get cleaned (doing tomorrow)
  • buy stuff for candy buffet (doing tomorrow)
  • pay rest of vendors (salon, makeup, flowers, restaurant, cake) (fi is doing next week)
  • finish writing ceremony (we started last night and hope to finish tonight)
  • find a god damn metal bath thingy that I have searched for EVERYWHERE to put water bottles in at the ceremony
  • buy said water bottles
  • buy food for rehersal dinner (we are doing a bbq)
  • buy wine/drinks for “after party”
  • narrow down what song I am dancing to with my dad
  • Make donation and sign for donations

I think that is pretty do-able. Luckily I am not having programs, place cards, seating chart or menus (MIGHT actually make the menus depending on time).
I am SUPER excited now!!!!!! I keep getting butterflies!

janie-janie: Ugh. It’s a full Catholic mass, so I think a program is kind of a must – masses are long, and with lots of stuff going on!

Reception is a month away, thank GOD!

I still have to:

Get the ceremony wording and music choices to the officiant

Buy a damn slip

Print out hair picture inspiration for hairdresser ( I hope she can work wonders)

Get hair trimmed and eyebrows WAXED (they are huge)

And pack, pack, and some more packing – hoping I don’t forget anything!

Hi Bees!

i am 8/27

Unfortunatly I went like a lunitic for the last 8 months, sooooo I am completly finished and bored out of my freaking mind! I even went to the extent of seperating and labeling each box so the venue knows exactly what goes where (kind of a fanatic:)

my biggest worry is the weather. This is the first year Pa has had tornados and I am so afraid teh rain wont hold off!

@jotasevic: almost indeed!! So exciting!

This afternoon I am going to sew our ring pillows (need two).
I still need to work out the seating arrangements, and make sure I have people’s +1s’ names, and then find an easy way to tell people where they are sitting

Thats almost all the major things worked out. I wanted to make a sign of some kind for the top of the driveway and to direct people out towards the space… And maybe one to indicate where to park. Maybe, but I need wood or something to do that.

Oh, and I pick up my dress tomorrow!!!!!

I still have lots to do! But I think it’ll be doable. I’m at work until next Tuesday though! Hopefully I can get almost everything finished this weekend.

I was going to write my list out here… but I’m afraid it’s a little too stressful! lol

Good luck everyone!
