This week seriously blew up. I am nervous and not yet excited and happy yet. I think I will be after I get a few more things finalized. My officiant just told me ‘no dice’ and I don’t have catering figured out yet. No flower contract yet and he HASN’T even talked to his groomsmen….He’s on it today but ugh.

I am so behind. I get married in Aug and I dont even have my save the dates out yet. GAH! My mother needs to send me addresses!!!

Technically I got engaged only a couple months ago but I knew I wanted to be married on the specific date – so I had to take a short planning session. Eck.

@dovelovesfalcon:  I had three bridesmaid options bail. They all live so far away and couldn’t really decide due to school dates and unsure about work vacation times. So I just secured my last one last night. I send her the dress this afternoon (from modcloth).

But I think you are right – once I get through this week of craziness I iwll be alright again. This weekend I plan to check off officiant, save the dates mailed, wedding website, registry, and buying my shoes and the stuff for the cake. Then all I have left is to wait for his parents to get home so we can work out food and tents. Flowers and Rentals after that then I should be golden again besides all the DIY stuffs I have planned.

Strangely enough I feel better lol. Hope I didn’t thread-jack – This is such a good topic!

@dovelovesfalcon:  

 

Oh my… we’re date twins and still don’t have that feeling… Maybe I should be hunting down a to-do list and see where I’m at…

@suburbian:  You have a photographer, so it’s all good! haha 🙂

I don’t know…I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet? I have moments of, “Holy shit, I have to like…stand up in front of 100 people and talk and I’m going to ugly cry!” but I’m normally like, “I have to get x, y, and z done…”

@suburbian:  Seriously, I am not an attractive crier! You know how some girls just tear up and it looks nice? Not me! I get all red and blotchy–everywhere. Eyes get red and bloodshot, cheeks, nose, neck, ears, and upper chest get bright red and blotchy…not awesome.

When I got my first registry gift last month.  I was like, oh wow this is happening soon!

I had a moment at the one year mark, but I think I’m due for another with spring hits.

It hasn’t really gotten real to me yet. I’ve gotten everything done, booked, And I don’t really have much else to do. I keep waiting for the moment when I’ll be like “wait, I’m getting married!!” 

We booked our honeymoon last week,wasn’t was super exciting, but I still don’t have that feeling!

maybe when all the stuff starts arriving that I’ve ordered off etsy?

It started when I sent out the save-the-dates last month (like WOW YAY this is really happening!).  

And now I’m dealing with the nitty gritty shit like acquiring tablecloths and finding a replacement drummer for my FI’s band…  So I feel more like YAY but also UGGGHHHH.

@dovelovesfalcon:  In the last couple weeks s**t started getting real. I had my first fitting. We started receiving shower gifts in the mail (like everyday…which is awesome and like a daily, after-work Christmas of soup tureens, luggage and flatware!) Also, things went double nuts today when our letterpress vendor emailed that the invitations are done and ready to go out…
