I haven't done much in the past month, lol. Been busy running around trying to buy this stupid house! Ble =P I did some "do not disturb" door hangers for my OOT peeps (new project), I finished a few favors. I also made personalized koozies for the guys. I've been working to finish the table names and FH is going to start suit shopping in the next couple weeks!

I still have a lot of little crap....we haven't purchased our rings yet, but that's because we will need every penny to close on the house (hopefully sometime this week!) so we haven't been making any purchases over $100, because no one can tell us with any certainty what the amount owed will be when we close!

Once closing is done, wedding stuff will be back in full gusto!

Date triplets! As of today, I have venue, dj, photographer, photo booth, my dress, BM dresses, FG dress, GM attire picked out, rings purchased, centerpiece materials purchased and officiant. I have started buying things for my BM gifts, have the favors picked out, invites are currently being shipped to me, almost all of the important music picked. The one thing I can't decide on is flowers. I keep changing my mind as to what I want in the bouquets. FH is a computer whiz and makes everything I ask him to on VP. I am almost done! We are expecting a baby in July so I need to be done with every thing before her arrival.
Keep chugging along ladies!

Tonight FH and I ordered our invites! I am so excited to get them. VP says they should be here in about two or so weeks. I really hope they turn out okay. We got them for under what our budget was for them so we were happy. So far we have the reception site, ceremony site, we're doing our premarital counseling, picked the tuxes, booked the photographer, meeting with the dj in two weeks, booked the florist, did the food tasting which went really well. What needs to be done? Wow, I feel like everything. Two of my BMs still need to order their dresses but of course that's not in my control, still need to order my FG dress for my daughter, have to order FH wedding band since I already have mine(came with my e-ring) We pick out the cake in July since that is apart of our package with the venue and I am super excited for that. Ladies, what am I missing here??? Then of course there are all the other DIY things. Wow, I am starting to get anxious thinking about it all. Just 5 months to go. :)

I am so glad that I'm not the only one behind. I still have basically everything left to do. I guess that is the way it goes when you have 3 school age children...

Venue is secured, gown is done, working with a photographer now. Don't have to worry about invites and such - we're basically eloping. It's just going to be our witnesses and that's it so we don't need to go through all this hassle any more. But we are still looking for an officiant that will do "our" ceremony. BP is on their own for their own clothing.

You do have a date twin Michelle! :)

Done - dress ordered; tux picked out; photographer, baker, caterer, dj, DOC, rentals booked; favors done; STDs mailed; linens & decor have been bought; purchased our rings.

BM have been told to order dresses by 5/14; FH still has to ask one more groomsman.

Had a blast on Vista Print tonight, they have a penny sale going on.

Still to do - book florist, officiant; need to work on invitation folders and a few other DIYs
