@MrsMRS:  Yup and I have a planner but I still haven’t done much. We’re getting there but even just the fitness regiment is getting to me. Is it bad if we don’t show up to our own wedding? I just want it all over and done with.

I’m actually freaking out in the opposite way. I feel like i’m pretty much organised, i don’t really know what else to do, and it’s all been too easy, i keep waiting to find out about something super important i’ve forgotten or for everything to fall apart. Exactly 4 months tomorrow. SO EXCITED!

I really haven’t done any wedding stuff in over a month now! All of the vendors are booked and the big stuff (dress, BM dresses, cake, DJ, flowers, etc.) is done. I kept saying I just have the little details to take care of until last week when I actually sat down and made a list of those details…it is overwhelmingly long!

Other than the invitations, which I’m DIYing, it’s all relatively small…buy veil and earrings, finalize ceremony readings and readers, etc. But I can see how it would snowball if you aren’t on top of things. But I actually feel a lot better now that I have written it all out and given myself deadlines for each item.

Oh, I’m SO GLAD others haven’t sent STD’s. I sent out all the ones to people who have to travel 5+ hours, but the closer ones I didn’t send out. I actually still have some addresses to track down. 😛

I’m with everyone else — it’s the details that are starting to pile up now! We still need to:

  • Start diet/exercise routine
  • Hash out liquor pricing and menu selections (as well as sample those selections) with our venue
  • Find and book a florist!
  • Currently going back and forth with my Etsy person regarding font on our invites. Need to get that straightened out soon because I want to mail them mid-July.l
  • Purchase FI’s outfit
  • Purchase materials for DIY projects
  • Have my hair/makeup trial (scheduled for June 21st)
  • Start working with our officiant on the ceremony
  • Buy our wedding bands (but not until August)
  • Dress fittings/alterations (August)
