  • Wedding: September 2017 - Poppy Ridge Golf Course

41 days to go! I just want to be married, see my family and friends then get to the honeymoon. Not much left to do except a meeting with the photographer next week to discuss the timeline and finalize the seating chart. Sitting around waiting on RSVPs but the deadline isnt until 8/26.

Hanging in there.  Can’t wait for my day to come.  It’s being a harrowing road to get here.  LOL!  Just wrapping up the details, doing trials, and getting ready to make the final payments.  RSVPs are coming in slowly but surely. RSVP deadline is 9/2 so plenty of time to get them in.  May have to push back the HM but at this point who cares.  Seriously I just want to say “I Do” to my honey.  All else will fall into place.

I think the only reason we’re so far ahead is bc we started planning over a year ago lol You’re fine. 😄 We’re going on a 7 night eastern caribbean cruise. Wanted to try something different than our recent vacations. Where are you two headed?

  • Wedding: September 2017

SeptBride2Be23 :  We are officially 40 days away! We just met with our florist today and finalized wedding flowers, and tomorrow we meet with our pastor to go over the ceremony details. Invitations went out a few weeks ago and we already have half of our RSVP responses with 0 people declining yet. Our wedding only had 61 people invited, so it’s not a massive event. 

I have just a few DIY projects to work on. I’m making 2 small signs, one for the bar and one for our wedding hashtag, and then I’m working on a chalkboard sign for a seating chart . I’ll upload photos of a before and after when I actually start working on it. I figured by the first week of September is when I will begin that project. 

As far as other things that need to still be done:

-Get our marriage license 

-Rent Table Topper Linnens

-Buy plates

-Buy additional wine glasses

-Plan the rehersal dinner

-Purchase alcohol

-Finalize music selection

-Pay for ice cream (not doing a cake)

-Get poloroid camera, film, and photo book for our guest book

-Write my vows

-Get some fabric to decorate our arch

-Have second and final dress fitting

-Look into a hotel room for FI and I

-Break in my wedding shoes

-Get manicure the day before my wedding

 

Wow, typing that all out makes it look like I have a lot more to do 🙁

We aren’t taking a honeymoon just because we are paying for this entire wedding ourselves and can’t afford to take a vacation directly after. 🙂 

One question for you brides, are you/did you send an invitation to your photographer AND officiant? Not sure if that’s something I’m supposed to do for whatever reason.

kcoast :  I was confused about the invites too but I figured better safe than sorry and sent one to both. I think the invite is what prompted the photographer to follow up with us and schedule our meeting.

SeptBride2Be23 :  We are 47 days out as well! It feels crazy to be thinking all this work is coming to an end and you will get to see the final product! This month has been so busy. Just this weekend we picked up our wedding bands, did our food tasting, and started making our signs oh and booked the last minute videographer!

We actually have something booked every weekend that is wedding related.  

heavenlyflower :  Is a follow up meeting with your photographer standard? I havent scheduled that or heard from them… Now I am worried lol

mrsnitti17 :  All of this is new to me so I have no clue. 🙈 The DOC reached out to him to discuss the timeline like a month ago. He emailed us last week to ‘meet up and talk about photo and timing details’. Not sure if this is the norm or not. lol Clueless

26 days! I’m a hot mess. I have lists on my phone all categorized, but I’m stressing regardless. My birthday is on thursday, and I’d totally forgotten it was coming up I’m so focused in wedding mode.

SeptBride2Be23 :  I’m incredibly jealous right now. I love Costa Rica SO MUCH! More than Jamaica, Hawaii, Mexico and Dominican Republic. Doesn’t hurt that we got engaged there. Its truly a beautiful country with wonderful people. You’re going to have a great trip. 😄 We’re planning to return next year during wet season.
