HERE!!!! Freaking out is an understatement! We have no coordinator and our venue is kind of a blank slate which means a ton of DIY work for us bringing everything in. So I'm just like in panic mode that there won't be time to get everything done. Plus tiny details like....our photographer wants a "detail" package at each getting ready location. FH's will include like his bowtie, shoes, an invitation suite, and his ring. Mine will include my bouquet, shoes, veil, invitation suite, and my rings. So I'm like.....how do we get the rings together before the ceremony? There's no first look and FH has a terrible memory and his ring will be the one that needs to travel after pictures.
I just ordered our rehearsal food and our day of food and scheduled pick-up times so that's good. I don't have anything else to buy that I know of which is nice. I have a few hours of work left to do for our centerpieces. I scheduled my "beauty" day to get my nails/toes/eyebrows done. I have my ring in for cleaning so just waiting to pick that up.
Oh and since we're exactly two weeks out I checked the long range weather forecast this morning. It's pretty favorable but they're all different and of course this far out can be completely off. Our reception is inside but the ceremony is outside. FH built 16 benches for it and I'm so scared of rain and having to move everything inside and wasting all that time and money.

Girl you sound like me lol. My list seems endless at this point and I’m getting over whelmed. I do have two planners thank goodness! But the stress level is still real lol. They are more just making sure day if goes smooth and right up our itinerary for the day. Omg all the little details are driving me crazy. Stickers on the bubbles, planting 165 flower pots with succulents in each(guest gifts), putting together 32 gift bags for rehearsal dinner. I can keep going lol. We are almost paid up too. We just need to finalized a few things with our hall that might have some add cost but that’s it

I pray for good weather for you!! Where do you live? Ive been stalking the weather at this point too lol. I live in IL, about 60 miles out of Chicago. So who knows what are weather will be like. 2 weeks ago we got almost a foot of snow in McHenry county. Then earlier this week is was high 70s/low 80s and now this weekend we are getting up to 5 inches of snow. So I have no flipping idea what weather I’ll have on May 10th 😢😩
Lol I hear you! I'm in Florida. May can definitely be rainy but it's been a dry season so far. The weather has actually been surprisingly beautiful and it hasn't gotten too hot yet. But....we could easily end up with rain.....or with weather like we've been having.....or with 95 degree weather. Lol!! There is just no telling yet. I'm crossing my fingers for beauty for us both!!
Hahaha yes. I've always been a planner and I feel like I have a lot done. But just the pick up of this on this day and that on that day. Still have to get my favors, pick up my (9 month pregnant) sister's dress. Pray she doesn't have a baby on my wedding day. Lmao. It's comical sometimes.
It is never ending!!! My panic set in yesterday so I made it a little further than you. But I definitely hear what you're saying. The good news is I just made our last catering payment. So now everything is paid for except favors which I'll just pay for when I pick them up a couple days before the wedding. Woooot!

The 17th is super close too!! I have the same feeling, it’s NEVER ending!! I feel like I should have done some stuff sooner but at the same time so much of the little crap kind of had to wait till last minute. Like my guest gifts. I have 170 mini succulents to plant in cute planters I purchased. It’s going to take forever. Idk what I was thinking lol
