@FutureBliss:  We are getting married a week after you and I feel like things are pretty much under control 🙂 I think I’ll change that ciewpoint further down the road, though! I am ordering invitations tonight (if I can ever decide on some!).  If you have advice in that department, I could use it!  

 

I also need to figure out flowers and finish/finalize our centerpieces.  

 

Other than that, I feel super! We went to get tuxes fitted/chosen last weekend, and I pick up my veil tomorrow! 

 

So congrats on being a relaxed bride!

We’re getting married 2 weekends before you, and I feel the same— there’s still work to be done, but we’re cruising right along, and all the “big” stuff is done (venue, dress, caterer, invites, etc etc) and the “little stuff” is manageable.

Judging from the posts on this site, we’re not the norm!!

I think we’ve created our own luck on this one. The Mr and I are paying, so no family drama there; we set an honest and realistic budget which would allow us a really amazing day without taking a second mortgage, and our priorities are pretty well in sync so we have very few debates on what to have/do etc. We kept the wedding party small, so there’s no personality disorders there, just a small circle of friends who already know and love each other. And while I don’t consider 110 people a “small” wedding, it’s not an unwieldy behemoth.

In hindsight, honestly I see why people elope– it is a LOT of money and work– but this really hasn’t been a bad experience. I’m in no hurry to do it again— I’ve got one full-time job already— but I’m pretty happy with how things have developed.

@FutureBliss:  I am ordering invitations TONIGHT!!! And I am off for the entire month of June (I am a year round teacher), so our mail dates will be similar.  

 

I had my dress altered and bustled (I get it back in 2 weeks) and my bridal portraits are on June 28th.  I need to find shoes and finalize my hair style before then.  

 

I am feeling pretty good… now to make it through the next four months (do you ever feel like it will NEVER come!?)  🙂 And the count down begins!
