It's almost our time to shine!
Where is everyone at with planning?
We just got all of our invites back and are starting our seating chart
Thinking about starting the vow writing within the next week and finishing up a few dress alterations and waiting for our passports

    I can't believe we're in July already!!! I'm working on finishing up centerpieces and writing out our ceremony. Our final venue walk-through is tonight, and I have my second dress fitting on Friday! We're steadily getting our RSVP's back, and I've been just loosely drafting a seating chart as they come in so we have less work to do on that closer to. Other than that, it's all the small details that I need to attend to now.

    Augusy 3rd here, it's almost time!! I've been completely consumed by wedding and honeymoon planning. We have calls or appointments almost every day this week. Call with our rehearsal dinner restaurant today and a virtu meeting g with our officiant tonight. I have what will hopefully be my final dress fitting tomorrow! FH picks up his attire from alterations tomorrow as well! We have dance lessons Thursday and FH is in a friends wedding Friday. I leave for a work trip Saturday morning and return Friday. Then we fly out the following Saturday for the wedding! We'll have one week in cali to get everything finished and ready for the big day.
    Thanks for the reminder on vows....this is one thing I havent started.

    Congratulations to all brides who are getting married. I haven’t gotten there yet because my wedding is in August of 2020. However I am starting to get things done.

    Wow! I can't believe we get married NEXT MONTH. I have to finish my DIY guestbook sign and box, finish printing seating chart once we get RSVPs back (July 15th), finish perfecting my look (dress in alterations and buying a new sash). And packing for my honeymoon to Ireland! We are leaving the day after the wedding so I know it will be crazy but so worth it. We thought we were going to have to take a delayed honeymoon, but made it work!

    August 4th for me! I’ve got RSVPs in and we’re gonna get started on seating chart and escort cards this week. I’ve been ordering last minute things like a maniac, last night I bought a bunch of tins of mints for favors because I got a great deal on them. Still need to write vows and work on getting our tablecloths ironed/hung. Going in for my second dress fitting on Wednesday. So much is happening and I’m also in my busy season as work so I’m stress city but it’s getting done!!

    So exciting, it’s finally almost here! I still have to finish ceremony planning and seating chart and obviously meet with our vendors to finalize everything. Other than that everything else is on track!

    August 23 !! So excited, finally. I feel great about everything. Waiting (im)patiently for my dress to come in the next two weeks so I can get it to alterations. And the delivery of our reception mule mugs and his ring. Still need to procure a few small things for the bridal party gifts and parents. Ordered a cardboard cutout of our flower cat.

    Probably should start writing our vows (thanks for the reminder!) and other required stuff from the Rabbi. Finish the programs and seating cards left too. Just finished putting together FH grooms gift experience which is set for August 3. And run through rehearsal with Rabbi is done... still can’t find a chuppah and Jewish friends in UT to sign our Ketubah... hahaha!!

    Best part!! Finalized ALL vendors and paid in full last week, ready to hand off to my coordinator who is taking over August 1 and then I can chill, paaaarty and just enjoy the spoils my hard work with friends and family.
    Thoughts of the month: should I get a new garter and wedding shoes 😝

    We’ve got to finish our ring box and a few DIY crafts. I’ve been messaging guests who haven’t RSVPed. My bridal shower was two weekends ago and my bachelorette party is this weekend! I can’t wait! I’m moving in a week and a half. I have a job interview next week. All the stress at once. August 3rd is only 25 days away! I have to do some packing and organizing to make sure I have everything I need.

    August 17th! We've almost gotten back all the rsvps but we've had a couple no's so we'll be sending others out. Next week we do menu officiant and dj finalizations! My dress still isn't in so that's a bit stressful

    August 24!

    We went to Michael's today to get stuff for our centerpieces. While there, FH got ideas about the seating chart, which is 100% his job, now!

    We're getting RSVPs back, slowly.

    We just put together a spotify playlist to send to our DJ as "suggestions" (...I'm chronically unhip, we had to remember to put music on there from after 2000, lol). FH will put on the father-daughter song I want, and he'll send it off to the DJ ASAP.

    Wedding shower thank you notes are done, and most sent off - we need stamps for a few more.


    Need to figure out ceremony music, vows, actually BUILD the centerpieces, do my hair/makeup trial, and a gazillion other little things, but I've gone from last week's OH NO WE ARE OVERWHELMED to Right, Ok, We've Got this.

    ...If the limo company doesn't get back to me by tomorrow, though, I'll likely freak out.

    We've gotten back about half of our RSVPs, I have my second dress fitting this weekend, we're almost done with our centerpieces and a couple of other diy decorations, I wrote my vows months ago (I just couldn't wait!), and we had our meeting with our officiant so he could start writing our ceremony. 39 days left! Aahhh!

    Mine is August 10th! So excited! 🥳🥳 I’m a bit of a procrastinator though. There’s still some vendors I need to pay, alterations for my dress are on Saturday, bridal shower is two weeks out (only time my MOH who’s hosting it is available), and I still have to get last minute reception items to get. Whew! 😬 So glad I have a day of coordinator.

    Still have to write out seating chart, Menu Cards, Programs, Vows, Day of schedule, Water bottles, Still have to buy Flower girl dresses.

    We have already scheduled our rehearsal and dinner, scheduled time to bury our bourbon, (Oh.. I need to by Bourbon)
