- Wedding: October 2010
Morning hive! We’re down to just under 3 weeks til the big day and there is soooo much left that needs to be done. A lot of it is little stuff like making payments, etc. I have to find my hair accessories and schedule my hair/ makeup trial but these are things I can handle.
I’m completely freaking out over a couple of things, though. First (and most freak-out worthy) is my photographer up and quit on us 2 weeks ago! So the fiance has been trying to find another one. Second, we have quite a few people who haven’t turned in RSVP’s. I know this happens all the time, but its like, c’mon all you have to do is check a couple boxes and stick it in the mailbox… I’m doing all the work here. Eh, at least from this day foreward when I receive an invitation to something the RSVP will be answered straightaway, so all hope is not lost I suppose. Third, I am still trying to figure out bridesmaids gifts.
I have 4 (2 Maid/Matron of Honor, 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man… long story for another day). My sister decided to be in at the last minute, and because I want her in my wedding I’m paying for her dress and her hair and makeup which comes in about $250 total. I’m paying for my other Maid/Matron of Honor to get hair and makeup done- $85. The other two girls are having a friend do their hair (I haven’t been picky at all about hair, shoes, etc because I knew I couldn’t help with those things).
I want to give all 4 girls at least a little something. I am going to write individual notes to each of them but I also want something for them to open. Then, of course, I feel like the other girls have gotten the short end of the stick. A big issue is that my BM’s are my fiance’s sister and a friend of theirs and I don’t know them well enough to feel confident in picking out a gift for them.
Then there is a part of me that wonders why I’m so freaked out about this. Truth be told, aside from a couple of trips to the bridal salon with me, and the fiance’s sister adding our wedding shower to a party she was already throwing, I haven’t had help from my girls on anything.
I never wanted to be the bride that gave necklaces to wear at the wedding as gifts, but its looking more and more like it may go that way. I think I’m just over analyzing the situation and just need to go pick out something(s)… of course I’ve got to figure out where best to go. Any ideas?
Oh, and sorry for the long post ….
