Happy April! After waiting nearly 500 days, the month is finally here!

How is everyone feeling? I already haven’t been able to sleep much and hoping this doesn’t continue throughout the month. It’s a mix of excitement/anxiety. I’ve checked in with all my vendors to make sure I’m not missing anything. The only thing left now is my final fitting and dress pick-up on the 21st! I really hope I like the final changes to the dress because I really have no other option at that point.

    Happy April and congrats! I'm stressed, but also still feeling kind of chill. I need to work out vows, the seating chart, music choices, welcome bags, programs, menu cards, escort cards, and a bunch of other small details. Good thing the wedding is the last Saturday in April.

    It seems like you have most things done. You should take some time for yourself and not think about the wedding for a day. That might help you get more sleep.

    Happy April to all us April brides! Less than 2 weeks left for me! Just trying to nail down all the day of and day before logistics. Nervous about my brother who is a groomsman since he is flying in Thursday night. Friday will be the first and only time he gets to try on his suit. I am praying it fits omg 😮. Working on getting my Thank yous and gifts to our bridal party and parents now. And had a groomsman yesterday go ‘what do you mean I can’t bring a date?’ Buddy I asked you weeks ago if you were bringing a date and you said no! Lucky I have until tomorrow to turn in our final numbers and I guess I will just have one table of 9 people...

    But I am so excited that i can finally say I am getting married this month! I love FH and I am so happy.

    I think we’re dat twins!! April 28th. I just did the seating chart last weekend with both sets of parents... it wasn’t tooooo bad haha. But def not enjoyable. Escort cards ordered shortly after. I think I just have a busy mind which keeps it racing in the middle of the night with silly “what-if” scenarios haha. I should just step away from wedding stuff for a week.

    Some months were slower than others, not going to lie haha. But set some days in between to look forward to together. That helped time go a little faster 🙂

    That's awesome! I have a busy mind too but FH is good at putting the brakes on for me. I told him to bear with me for the final month. I'd become normal afterwards haha

    I'm anxious and excited about our special day in two weeks. I was very busy yesterday with the caterer, seamstress (one more fitting on Tuesday), and baker. I'm having dreams of every scenario possible of what could go wrong. My dear FH has been a life saver with keeping me calm when he notices me being antsy and moody because of my negative thoughts. I can't wait to marry my best friend!

    My daughter's wedding is April 28th. For me, though, I have less than 3 weeks before we leave home (driving) for the wedding, which is halfway across the country from us. So the clock is ticking! I am sometimes very excited, and sometimes a bit nervous (just wanting everything to turn out well), but I'm not telling dd about the nervous part. We will be out there for the week before the wedding, to help finish up whatever last-minute details need to happen & then family time with everyone flying & driving in.

    Daughter is seeming calm, and they are just nailing down last-minute details. Maybe they have a few more details to finish than some people, because it's only a 6-month engagement, total. Thankfully, they have good parental support on both sides. They were just able to add a fun photobooth, with people to run it, as an extra for the cocktail hour.

    Centerpieces are finished, thanks to my DIL. That was a fun group project for me, DIL, and my other dd. I wrote myself a list of items to finish yet, (flowergirl baskets & aisle decorations) and then it's basically packing up everything to transport.
