September 2018 brides… we are officially one month away! Even though mine is at the end of the month (September 29) it feels so weird to think it’s NEXT MONTH.
How is everyone coming along? What do you have left to do?
We mailed our invites a few days ago and are slowly getting RSVPs coming in. All our vendors are booked- we are now working on getting appointments to meet with them to discuss details (florist, DJ, catering, etc.). I’m also planning to get a facial this month as well as next month, and to get serious with some other beauty stuff (skin care, nails, tanning, staying hydrated). We also bought a condo recently and that in itself has been a lot of work in terms of getting our place painted, furnished, and slowly moving our stuff in.
I’d love to hear how everyone else is doing 🙂

Invites are out so just waiting on people to respond which is taking forever, but it is then just finalising centrepieces and favours and seating charts as well as writing our vows.

I’m the 1st of September so I’m now not even a whole month away!
Invites and RSVPs are back (apart from a few evening ones – UK bee here!). I really quickly put together a table plan, it flowed really easily, now someone has changed their rsvp and it’s an almost impossible challenge to redo it. At least it happened now!
I started going to get my nails done – I’d had a bad manicure at Christmas that left me bleeding and now my nails are growing out the damage so breaking all the time. My new nail lady is SO excited about doing my wedding nails! Haha.
I’ve still got some DIYs to do, and gifts for the bridal party/parents. We finished the favours last night, it feels like werew constantly ticking things off the to do list now. Also all the payments have gone out so it’s a good job I need to stay home and just do crafts! Haha

I feel relieved that most of the big stuff was slowly marked off our to-do list, but now I am feeling stressed with the amount of little things! DETAILS. Like the timeline, photo list, ceremony outline, vows, speech, etc. Still have some DIY stuff to finish up. I was feeling pretty ahead of the game up until last month, getting something checked off every weekend. Now I feel like I have 3-5 things to do every weekend/have to start finishing things up during the week. It kind of came out of no where, I feel like!

We’re only having a tiny wedding but I still need to order the rings, get FH shoes/shirt/tie, sort out flowers, pick a menu, put together a wet weather plan (and buy wellies, etc), agree on a cake, discuss photos, do a trial run for my hair… think that’s it! It’s come around sooo quickly!

rubibelle : yeah, it’s INSAne that it’s right around the corner. And stressy at the same time. Honestly, since we’re doing a very private international elopement (just us) there isn’t so very much to do, but all of it is thus far unfinished. I had such grand plans and now I am totally running late. All i keep thinking is: main thing we get married, all the details aren’t really all that important, lol. I think I’ve been abducted by aliens because I have been planning all this in my head for a solid 2 years and now it would seem I just wanna wear a pretty dress and marry my honey on the 27th and the rest is kinda fading in the background. 😂 Oh well, maybe I will get into gear when it gets even closer?!?!
Wishing all you fellow September ladies all the best!!!

Shesaidyes : “All i keep thinking is: main thing we get married, all the details aren’t really all that important, lol.” This needs to be my new mantra!

I am September 29 as well! I sent out our invites a couple weeks ago and am slowly getting RSVP’s. I have our vendors booked but now just working on tying up loose ends.
I really need to go through the decor items I have and sort them, decide what I want where…and some other little things like programs, seating chart…escort cards. Just the smaller details!
Is anyone else nervous? EEK! I’m so excited to marry my Fiance, but the whole “wedding” part makes me nervous. I’m worried my guests won’t have fun, or it will be lame, etc!

My wedding will be during the first week of September and I still have quite a bit to do! Never has a thread gave me so much anxiety and excitement at the same time! 😃

Closer to two months for me.
I’m waiting on RSVPs 😬
I need to put the final food order in when we have numbers.
I have an appointment with my seamstress on Thursday.
We need to order the cake. Just going with a regular cake so we’re not late, and I don’t know if I have 25 or 50 people at this point. 🤷♀️
Get the centerpieces, which are candy.
Send the music list over.

Sep 21st here! I’ve just got all our rsvps back – although still chasing a few people. Finalised the flowers the other day and we have been going through timelines/ speeches / photo schedule. I’ve been buying a few bits n pieces such as our flowergirls dress and basket and signs to print. I am waiting for our place cards to come in the mail – we ended up getting gold mirror so can’t wait to see them!
I had a week where i was stressed and overwhelmed last week now this week I’m excited- anyone else going through all the emotions?!

sunnybee88 : I feel like I’ve been running a marathon and I’m not quite at the finish line but I wish I’d done more training. It’s like a wedding exhaustion had kicked in 4 weeks too soon!
Fi is off for his stag this weekend so I’m hoping to get some more DIYs finished off then and I can stop stressing!

I’m another Sept 29th. Quite a few declines in the last week.
Need to sort order of services. Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses arrived this week so that’s good. Dress is ready to collect. Just need to confirm some stuff with the florist and sort some sound kit. I think otherwise we’re pretty good. Oh and I need a new chain for the pendant I was going to wear.
When is your RSVP deadline beevincent18 : rubibelle : ?
