I was super stressed last week as everyone was at me to send the invites (semi destination wedding, people need to book accommodation) so I sent them on a week where my work was insane, my wedding vendors were emailing me constantly and I was very sick… out of 23 invites 5 of them had mistakes and 2 were sent to the completely wrong address

Lesson: dont do ANYTHING if you are having a bad week. It will only result in more stress!

My to do list:

Get legal paper signed (being done tomorrow)

Get the boys their suits (being made in Bali, going there in a month)

Organise transport to take us from reception to accommodation on night of wedding

Do tastings and organise menu (next weekend)

Pick up rings (should be ready next week)

Do first dress fitting (in a month)

Everything else is done, its all little things now like doing the slideshow, seating chart, printing programs, making eye spy game, finalising cake decoration, finalising music and paying everyone. I am hoping that it will be relatively smooth sailing until the week before where I know that no matter how organised I am, I will be stressing!

OMG yes! I told Fiance yesterday.. we have less than 3 months. OMG WE HAVE LESS THAN THREE MONTHS!!! He didn’t get my panic, but my to-do list is miles long at this point. Good news is that all of the big things are done, everyone is booked and it’s just the details that are being ironed out right now.

I feel like there is tons of time left! I’ve got all the big ticket things taken care of and now it’s just smaller, more detailed stuff such as my DIY projects, music playlist, seating charts… etc. Other than that I’m just getting excited at this point, not stressed.

So running out of time. Next big things on my list are engagement photos (next week) and first dress fitting (week after that). And I need to figure out all my accessories before the dress fitting, ugh. Fun times. 🙂
