Now that it's here, it doesn't feel as long. But I remember last year in May thinking that we still had a whole year to go...ugh!!! Haha congratulations!!! Can't wait to see your photos on here after your wedding 😍
May 4th here! I’m just 3 days away!! This morning I have been wrapping all of the gifts for the rehearsal dinner and then in a couple hours I go for mani/pedis with my family that is in town. Excitement is definitely setting in!!
May 4th! All I have left to do is make up my little favor bags, there’s candy in them so I wanted to wait til as close as possible so they don’t get stale. Mine and FHs family come in tomorrow. I’m kinda nervous the reception will be awkward and boring 😬but I think that’s just my nervous mind. For you girls that still have days/weeks left, please enjoy it! I’m realizing now I wish I hadn’t let the stress get to me these last couple weeks and really enjoyed the time. We’re so close!

Congrats, so excited for you all!! I'm a June bride and also been engaged since December 2017. I'm so ready for the day to get here already I feel like I've been waiting forever but at the same time it feels like it went so fast!
I am finally done with everything-I just need to reach out to minted.com and order escort cards. I have a day of coordinator who corrected me that they are called that vs place cards. I have a business trip on Monday where I'm gone until Thursday evening. I currently have food poisioning. I'm 16days away, it's getting real!
I got engaged in December 2017 too and my wedding is technically June, but 2 days after yours! My three main sources of stress lately have been: (1) our venue coordinator being horrible and shady and sneaking in extra costs (don't even get me started...) (2) not having a videographer (3) getting RSVPs!
So this morning our coordinator finally emailed me back and actually signed my updated contract that had a clause saying that they are not authorized to bill us more than for agreed-upon x, y, z charges so that is a HUGE relief... hopefully she won't be able to get away with anything else!
Then for videographer I've just been so upset about not having one for too many months. We didn't have the budget for it but we've gotten a lottt more declines than expected, so now we're using that extra money and having one I'm so excited and relieved.
Our RSVP deadline is TOMORROW and we're actually only waiting on 18 more responses (out of 146) so not too bad! Going to hunt people down starting on Friday (or maybe even tomorrow night depending on how antsy I get hahaha).
We're also planning to get our marriage license soon! I got the OK from my boss today to come in a couple hours late one day, so I'm going to make the appointment probably today or tomorrow. AHH.
What's been happening this past week: My sister/matron of honor gave birth to her second child. I got physically sick from all of the emotional stress of a family drama situation with my cousin and his wife. My left foot tendonitis has almost completely healed and I am no longer wearing an aircast!
When I return from visiting the new baby, my mom and I will return our focus to the wedding.
