These boards have been quiet lately! Definitely means all our weddings are getting close & things are hectic! Lol, my shower is this weekend too! I can’t wait. As far as wedding planning goes, I’ve got most of the big stuff done, I’m just waiting on my invitations to get done & back to me so I can begin addressing them & get them out! I’m also finishing up purchasing all the little things (cake server, toasting flutes, etc) & then I’ll be just about done! I’ll be having my first fitting within the next few weeks also! I can’t believe how close it’s getting! 81 days πŸ™‚

74 days to go!

My passport came in yesterday. I was surprised that it only took about 2 weeks.

FH’s ring came in last week!!!

My shower is next weekend. We are pretty much done with all of the planning. We are beginning to get the candy bar finished(buying supplies). I received my invitation sample and we are about to email the guest list so that they can be addressed. I have a lot of homework due this weekend so that is my focus right now.

Nice idea to use cookies and hot cocoa to make photo time!  I cannot believe your dog chomped the USB drive – I would have totally freaked out! It sounds like you all are really busy, getting lots done. Have fun at your upcoming showers!

We finally have our invitation drama under control, knock on wood something else doesn’t come up.  They are getting printed and should be assembled and done this Friday. Our envelopes are en route to our calligrapher.  So completed invites should be in the mail on schedule!  I am really excited to see the final product – I’ll snap a pic and show you once I have them.

I have my first fitting scheduled, cake cutter/servers picked out and waiting to be engraved, bridal jewelry picked out, Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts picked out but still need to be ordered.

And yet, even though we have so much done, I cannot stop thinking of what we still have to do…and worried that I’m forgetting some major aspect of planning! I’ve have about 10 mini wedding meltdowns lately, the stress is starting to get to me…

We had our shower last Sunday!  It was amazing and perfect and they TOTALLY surprised me!  Today I mailed our invitations! 

@kansas-I suggest putting a serving set on your registry!  We got one on Sunday that is beautiful!  We didn’t register for it but I was stressing about it a few weeks ago because I forgot we had to get one.

My invites will go out next week and today I am heading to my bachelorette weekend! Reading this though has made me feel so much better because I was feeling way behind!

We still need a dj though and I will have my hair and makeup trial the morning of my shower 11/20/2010.

It is all starting to feel so real though!!

Getting so much closer!

Just taking a couple of weeks at my parents place and have had the 2nd to last fitting for my dress (will all be done when I come back here in December) and it is looking great! So exciting.

This time of year is really busy because I am finishing off my teacher-training at the moment (will be all done this time next month) – getting local invites out next week (sent international ones a month ago) – exciting! Although had to re-do the outside as discovered (thanks MuM!) the monogram on the outside of the (pocketfold) invite had 15 Jan 2010 on it instead of 15 Jan 2011! What a muppet! I was so annoyed at myself (but all fixed now)

Sounds like you ladies are going great, getting excited!

I feel like I have been spending a lot of time looking for stuff Id want at my wedding but not actually buying it, leaving me scrounging for a plan B.

 

Cake topper was ordered yesterday,

servers are engraved,

boutinieers are 1/2 way done and so far they make me wanna toss them in the trash for not cooperating,

our caterer is booked, still deciding on a menu though.

We still need TONS of fabric, our flower girl and jr bridesmaid dresses,

any coverage options for our strapless Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses,

our cake still needs  A LOT of payments, thanks to my flavor choices jacking up the bill,

we still need to get a price from the photographer (which is driving me nuts!)

our “engagement” photos for the invites, including ORDERING the invites…

Amongst a ton of other things!! Yell

 

Only 3 months left and the list is never ending…
