My wedding is one week away. Almost all of my DIY’s are done.
But the cursed slideshow scanning marathon hasn’t even started. And I’m totally dreading it. Today has to be the day though. (And, unfortunately, so does tomorrow, probably).
What chore or DIY are you dreading/avoiding?

My wedding is in two weeks, and I still haven’t gotten my dress bustled! My dress arrived the DAY BEFORE i moved halfway across the country for a new job, and I had no idea where to look for a seamstress (my family has used the same one for everything my whole life). I am finally getting it done tomorrow though!

I’ve been seriously putting off figuring out how we’re going to make our damn chuppah and how we’ll get it to stay upright on our sloping lawn. UGH.

How I am doing invitations and escort cards. I know it will be a week before the wedding and ill be scurrying to get them all together!

Well, this isn’t exactly a small chore. We’ve been engaged for a while and still haven’t picked a venue. Lol. We went to THREE yesterday and it’s still up in the air. Meh. We’ll pick one eventually.

@Leprechaun: Ditto sort of. I have these long streamers off of my sash that will flow along w/ the train, but I haven’t figured out to get them off the ground for the ceremony. If I wrap the sash wide again, I’ll start to look like I’m wrapped up in an obe.
And…it’s afternoon. I’ve gone to flower warehouse. I’ve started glittering my card box. I went out for brunch. Now I’m on weddingbee. Still not a single photo scanned. Dammit. Here I go.

We’re still looking for a venue. I’m 95% sure the reception is in my dad’s backyard but I’m still not sure about the ceremony. I need to get on that!

Getting my birdcage veil. I know it’s an integral part of my wardrobe that day but the one’s I really loved were so expensive I couldn’t bring myself to do it until I had searched high and low for a reasonable replacement. I ended up getting the expensive one I really wanted and I’m glad I did too. 😉
One thing I’m dreading but NEED to do asap is figure out my seating chart. Yuk. Anybody have any tips for making it go fast and easy??

I have still not picked out my wedding ring. I want to have a custom ring made, but it may be too late!

@NYshoppingirl: I used an excel spreadsheet to make my seating chart. It was easy to shuffle around mini-groups of people with it.
Also…my other procrastination chore was my veil. I made it yesterday. I’m not sure if it looks good, but it’s done.

Mine is also the slideshow! I have attempted it a couple of times but I can’t get into a groove. Good luck with yours, if you have any hints please share!

I am as done as I will ever be. I don’t have the option of putting off anything. I do think though that I am pretty much good to go. I just have to finish packing my bag, but some things can’t go in there, until the day of.

My photos are done…now onto my FI’s! The scanner has been limping along all day too. It takes FOREVER. At least I can do other chores stuff in between scans.

Definitely Thank-You’s. Trying to keep addresses, gift lifts all organized make me want to give myself a papercut to the eyeball.

Contacting the minister to set up another appt to get our ceremony in order. Also contacting the venue about pricing on alcohol. And contacting the photographer again. Yeah I am procrastinating
