I’m here!

I am in the middle of studying for my PhD comprehensive exams and so I am pulling my hair out – literally!

My oral exam is in 4 weeks which is a week before my bachelorette weekend in NYC, the following weekend I am the MOH in my BF wedding and then there is 4 weeks till our wedding.

So YA I’m freaking out a bit!

yes, i am freaking out. well periodically i freak out that things just won’t come together, won’t look how i want it to etc. we had our sample table yesterday and i’m unsure about flowers. i posted something here, but no responses. so that kinda sucked. tomorrow is our tasting. parents have been here all week which is kinda stressful in general. overall things are okay. prepping for 2nd shower, bachelorette, 2nd fitting, starting dance lessons, finalizing cake, sending out invites etc. invites currently getting calligraphied but i can’t wait for them to go out. a lot of our plans depends on numbers and we have no idea how many are going to show up since we’re 75% out of towners – we could 100 or 300. no clue.

I’m just holding my breath until the last day of school on the 21st…then off to my bachelorette party!!  I’ve been waiting on a lot of wedding stuff until then.  Lots to do!

I’m hoping to get invitations out by next weekend.  We’ll see if it happens?

Also desperately awaiting the arrival of my dress!  Any day now…

I’m August too! Almost nothing done though and I don’t really have a good excuse except FI and I are REALLY indecisive basically. 😉

We are working on the DIY invites and HOPE to get them out by this week but it probably won’t be until next week.

I have a sample dress that’s 4 sizes too big for me and I haven’t had a fitting yet (although I did have a conversation with a seamstress about it LOL).

We JUST booked our DJ.

We haven’t decided on a photographer yet.

Did I mention, all of it is being planning long-distance. So I think I might be here to make other people feel better about the progress they are making because you are all certainly way ahead of me. 

I’m in denial a little bit that is happening so soon LOL but I’m sure things will turn out just fine.

I’m getting butterflies!  I’m so excited for all of us!  I met with the cake lady, marriage prep people from church, the music leader for our church service, and will have looked at mattresses all this week!  There’s so much to do all of a sudden!  I can’t believe we only have to more months to go!  EEEE!

Here!

Getting super excited!!! Went for my first fitting last Saturday and everything fits great minus at the boobies. of course! Next fitting on 6/26 then pick up on 7/10.

Cake order pretty much set.

BM dressed due in middle of July.

FG dresses should be done by end of next week.

Wedding brew #1 has been bottled and we’ll start labeling soon. LOVE the way our labels came out!! Everyone we showed them to thought they were the coolest! =) Made brew batch #2 last night. After we bottle that we’ll be making batch #3 then we have to make a Loganberry beverage for the 21 and under.

Everything else is really minor stuff. Like making the programs and working on the wine bottles for centerpieces.

And oh FI bought his suit!!! for 37 buckaroos!!! Yup $37! Macys was running a ahmazing sale and through a GC I got at my bridal shower we picked FI up a really snazzy Calvin Klein suit for 37 bucks!

Grooms men & RB ties have been ordered and shipped out.

I feel like we’re in a good place. Laughing

I just got my invitations and they were HORRIBLE, I had to send them back and now wait another two weeks to get them done again.   I’m a little nervous about that…

Wondering what else is going to go wrong.  This was the first thing gone wrong. And its also the first of the vendors to supply the product/service.

I am here. Just trying to get my Sh** together and not be TOO stressed out. Though I had a dream last night where I strangled my mother, so I think it is safe to say I am officially STRESSED OUT! 🙂

Trying to finish our ceremony write-up, just have the vows left.

I feel like everything is going well enough, but I am worried I’m forgetting something that needs to be done. We have our marriage license and are finishing the wording for the ceremony, so I guess that’s all that really needs to be done. 🙂
