@cant.wait.to.be.mrs.d:  keep the momentum going!! Hope you stay safe as Hurricane Sandy makes her way towards you. Thats a storm that is making me NERVOUS!!! I decided I want to make up placecards just for our parents table, maybe chair signs, I’m not sure yet as FIL’s, my mom and step dad and my dad and stepmom are all sitting together…that should be a fun time LOL

I finished up this weeks list and next week will be consumed with dropping off all my decor at the venue, confirming all my vendors, emailing final details to the bridal party and such. Then its going with Fiance to pick up tuxes (I want to make sure my sons tuxes fit well) and then rehearsal dinner and WEDDING DAY!!! wow, 8 more days!!

AHHHH! I am SO EXCITED about how close the wedding is! Everyone keeps harping on me and asking how nervous and stressed I am, and the only thing making me nervous and stressed it that question… because I have been so calm in the weeks leading up to now! Anyway, I think it is helpful to type out what we all have left so I thought I’d add my list!

  • Pick up dress (did that today! SO EXCITING!)
  • Bachelorette party (TOMORROW!)
  • Finish ceremony programs
  • Purchase, spray, and assemble frames for the menu and bar, cookie table, and programs
  • Pick up guestbook from photographer and finalize day-of details
  • Bake cookies

The rest of my to-do’s are during the week of the wedding! I honestly can’t believe how close it is… I think I am still in denial!

I’m getting there! I also picked up the frames for the cookie table, programs, and our table- just need to get the ones for the menu and bar. I spoke with my photographer today and she confirmed she has the guestbook, but quit answering me after that (she’s a pain in the you-know-what to get ahold of). I would like to pick up the rest of the frames tomorrow, but with this nasty weather from Sandy I think I’ll hold off until early next week. We are baking cookies Sunday, I meet with the venue Monday to finalize payments, etc… and then decorate Thursday, nails Friday morning, rehearsal Friday evening and wedding Saturday.

It’s SO close.
