June bees, most of us are 100 days to go or much less. I’m late June (the 28th) so we are hitting 100 day mark tomorrow. I couldn’t wait to post till tomorrow 🙂
I can’t believe we are THIS close! I am getting so excited!
We have our invitations, just needed to get the envelopes and stamps which I finally found and purchased this week. I’m going to start to get those ready to mail out mid-late April. We still need to order our alcohol and drinks (we are providing ourselves) but won’t be able to do that until June really and get lots of our decorations made/together. We also still need to hire an MC/DJ. We had a friend who was going to do it, but he bailed 🙁 Working on that! Most everything else is done that I can think of. I also have lots of meetings with my wedding coordinator coming up and we are going to check out the venue for placement/details on Monday. Also meeting coming up for dress alterations. And lots of pre-parties to attend 🙂 I’m also working on losing weight before the big day!
Where are you right now? Can you believe it’s so close?! Ahhh! So exciting and scary all at once 🙂

I share your excitement! Today is my 100 day mark! The total engagement (18 months) was 549 days, so this is exciting!! Only 18% of the engagement left.
We mailed our out of country invites and have already received a few rsvp’s (since those ones are online). Some have booked their airline/hotel as well. It is no longer this vague event in the distance….it is soon!
In a few weeks we’ll be off to Vegas for joint parties. This is also the time when vendors want their final monies, so probably a lot of check writing.
It has taken a while to change my mindset that we have lots of time to prepare. It is now time to get married. Yay!

We too had a long engagement. We got engaged in October 2012 so a total of 20 months! Yes now it’s finally getting close and feeling real!
Nice! That’s awesome! I’m anxious to send out our invites and get back RSVPS (hopefully quickly). Both sets of parents and us have a lot of people we had to cut and had hoped to invite. They want us to invite people if we get declines :/ I say we could only if we get enough no RSVPs and quick — because I don’t want to invite people a month before the wedding as that would be obvious :/
That’s awesome, I’m super jealous! Vegas would be amazing! You will have a blast, be sure to tell us what you did and how it went 🙂
Most of my vendors want payment in June so we still got a bit to go and save!
I know, it’s crazy! It’s come up so fast!!

79 days left for us! My spring break starts tomorrow so it’s going to be 10 days of wedding planning! My shower is saturday so I’m really excited about that. Finishing up invitations, just need to print the envelopes and stamp them. Planning to mail them out by the end of next week! Also planning to finish the rest of the centerpieces (23 of 26 are done!) and table numbers. Starting my dress alterations for both dresses next week and have a meeting with our venue coordinator to finalize some details. Probably have our second meeting with our pastor next week as well. I’m also planning to buy all my bridesmaids gifts next week (Vera Bradley bag, some Bath&Body goods, and anything else I find at the mall lol). Oh and I’m picking up my wedding band tomorrow, yay! I really don’t think there’s too much left I need to do but I can tell this is going to be a busy week!
