This is our card box. WE made it ourselves just bought a cheap kids drum set and we fixed it all up.  Fh is pretty creative!

The Unity candle I made myself! Thank you Wal-Mart! :)

The little one's Tiara custom made $20...can't go wrong!

Our Invitations with response cards!

This will be our table names. This is a rough copy but it will look like this but nicer!

2BBauer, I feel EXACTLY the same way.  I feel like I wanted it to come so badly and now I'm worried I don't have enough time.  We have stuff planned for every weekend.  I need to take time to work on the invitations and I would like to get the placecards and tablecards with the table names done.

Okay I'm with ya on the HOLY CRAP!  I haven't posted on here much but I;m thinking I might have a nervous breakdown in the near future and everyone else that I talk to about it is like "Oh, you have plenty of time".  BULL S**T I DO!  I have to get invites out and I can't stop procrastinating!  It seems like I picked the worst communicating vendors on the face of the earth and I can't decide on a damn thing!

Sorry, just venting I know it will all work out but Jeez, I might be bald by Sept. 27th!

Girls Girls Girls....OK don't panic!  Cause if you do I will start to panic too! 

Mrs. Paul....Please do not pull out all your hair...can you imagine pictures then!!!!  :P

There is still 2 months count it like that if it helps you rather then days...  Get the invites done if you havne't done them yet that's probably the most important by this time!


Until I marry my Rockstar!

Haha, Y’all I have been freaking out too!!  I was just looking at the calendar thinking...where did all those months go?! 
I think the best thing to do is PRIORITIZE.  For me that Is:  invitations, secure accommodations, secure transportation.

And I need to STOP looking at wedding magazines and reading wedding blogs!  They just make me feel like I am lacking things and entice me to start more projects which I DO NOT need to do!  LOL!  2 months really is a lot of time...we just need to take it one day and one task at a time.

I have been working on prioritizing today.  I made many lists, LOL!  My biggest problem is that FH and I are headed out of town Sunday and not coming back until Thursday.  It will be nice to take a break from wedding stuff but I feel like I am wasting valuable time!

Then FMIL is still widdeling away at their portion of the guest list.  She needs to cut about 30 more people!  I want to get invites out by the 20th but with her still finalizing the guest list and about 15 missing addresses from my parents, and about 15 missing addresses from FH I can't really address all the invites.

Then we still haven't decided if we are doing a shuttle for our guests or not, but if we do we need to include that information on the direction card that is going to be enclosed with the invite.  So I can't print the card til we know!!!! 

Those are my major problems right now, and considering I have 8 days til my ideal send out date for the invites and 5 of those days I'll be 4 hours away with no cell phone service and no internet I am panicking!  I know that the invites can go out a week later and it won't be a major tragedy but I hate when things don't go how I have them planned!

And on top of that I need to pack for both of us for our trip and go grocery shopping for everything we'll need to eat up there.  And it is 11:51 pm here on Friday, I have to work tomorrow night, and Sunday before we go so everything has to get done tomorrow!

I think I need a valium!

Well I"m glad I'm not the only one freaking out!  I had my MOH and one of my BM's come over so we could finish center pieces and favors, so YEAH for that being checked off the list! Tomorrow I decided was dedicated to addressing invites!!!  I have 2 foster kids under the age of 1, so that is probably going to be an ALL day project...LOL!!

Well good luck everyone, I'm sure I'll be posting more and looking to everyone for some sanity!  I know I haven't posted very often lately, but I'm sure I will be on a LOT more!

Have a great weekened and happy planning!

I, too, have been stressing about doing invitations!

They FINALLY came in and I planned to spend all of last weekend getting them ready to go into the mail.  That didn't happen.  My FH and I's really good married friends (one of which is my MOH) invited us to go camping with them and my FH insisted that we needed the break.  At first I was freaking out and trying to find an excuse to not go cuz I as convinced that if they weren't in the mail today (Monday) that we wouldn't have enough time to get RSVP's.  

Needless to say, we went for the sanity of our relationship (I'm an on the go constantly and he's very laid back so I've been driving him nuts!) and it was a REALLY good choice.  We had a blast and although my MOH and I occasionally discussed the wedding it was more or less not on my mind.  

My point is that although there is A LOT of craziness going on, it's not a bad idea to get completely away from it all so that you can come back with renewed enthusiasm and a fresh mind.  :-) 

Oh, and my invitation deadline is now this coming Saturday.  :-) 


 

I Love my Peter Pete Pete

Yesterday (we were both home with pulled back muscles from moving FH's mother) I installed the addressing software I purchased a long long time ago and jumped in with the invitations.  I probably have about half the names/addresses inputted.  Our invitation deadline for the first round of invites is August 11th.  I figure that gives plenty of time to get them back and figure out if we can invite anyone else we couldn't afford to begin with.  Laughing  Today I was looking at our registries to see if there was anything discontinued or that we wanted to add and I was shocked to see a few items had been purchased.  I guess I didn't think it would be this soon but our showers should be coming up some time in the next month I guess.

First of all, 2BBauer and BaltoBride, I'm glad your family and friends that were involved in car accidents are okay!

Secondly, I can not believe it has been an entire month since I last posted. Where is the time going? I may have a breakdown at any point. Must remember to breathe!

The latest drama: bustling the dress. (BTW, glad you liked the ivory 2BBauer! I might have mentioned this before, but while at a park taking pictures for my friends wedding in May I saw a bride wearing our dress in gold. Didn't like it near as much.) FMIL has decided she wants to do it, so we spent almost my entire day off last Friday trying to get it right. And we are back at square one. I'm sure a professional could do it in about five minutes and for next to nothing, since we are only doing two points, but she is certain she can do it. It's very sweet, but I hate how upset it is making her.

Oh, and the invitations. Our RSVP deadline is August 15th, so my goal was to have the invites in the mail by July 15th. Well, it's the 16th, and guess what isn't done. Uh-huh. Yeah. When we made the master guest list FMIL asked if  she could invite some of her co-workers. I said sure because I know a lot of them and I knew we needed to pad the guest list so that we would make our minimum. So she gave me a bunch of names and addresses, but told me not to send any of them Save the Dates, because she wasn't sure she wanted all of them there. Okay, fine. So three weeks ago I asked her for final list. Still don't have it. And it's weird because she calls me practically every day and asks if there is anything I need help with, and my response is that I need her final guest list. She says she will work on it, and then the next day we have the same conversation. I don't think she grasps how close we are to the "seriously, I need it now" territory. And then there is FFIL's family who is all out of state, all allegedly coming, yet they have all moved since the sending of the save the dates. So we have no addresses to send the invitations to. I suppose we could trust the post office to forward their mail, but this assumes they bothered to file a forwarding order. Numerous phone calls have been made, but they have not called back. Argh!!

It also just dawned on me today that I have to contact the florist and order extra corsages for the readers and bouts for my brothers who are not in the wedding but will be escorting our mother in the processional. I have no idea why when we went over the contract this didn't occur to me/she didn't mention it. That is normal right? Flowers for everyone involved in the ceremony?

We ordered our rings a few weeks ago and got a call on Friday they are ready to be picked up. The store is minutes from Greg's work, but do you think he has bothered to go and get them yet? Of course not. He's not worried, since "we have over two months." Is it wrong to want to smack him? Tongue out

gregsgirl, I know the feeling, last night I wanted to smack Mike because I thought for CERTAIN he would know how to spell Doris.  He wrote the inside envelope as Aunt Dorris.  Since we didn't have extras I just sent it like that today.

I sent our invitations out today.  YAY!!  I just have 4 to send that I need addresses for.  I feel like I accomplished something.
