Time to say good-bye to WW?

I'm about 45 days out and have noticed that many of the brides with weddings 60 days or less away aren't frequenting WW as much. Or that's what I've assumed based on some of the threads I've been reading on here. It's understandable since this is kinda crunch time, but I still miss being able to hear from those ladies. I suppose I need to start weening myself off WW anyway.

If there's anyone left on here with a wedding coming up within the next 2 months I'd definitely like to hear from you and maybe get your thoughts on what's left on your to-do list or what you're most excited about.

To all of you who've just joined or have more time to go I wish you all the luck and I'll make sure to come back to check on everyone in May (and to show you wedding pics).

    I'm still here date twin! It is definitely crunch time and I am getting a little stressed. I am ordering programs now and waiting for the rest of my RSVPs so I can do the seating chart and place cards. I am meeting with my florist on Saturday to finalize everything and have been emailing all my vendors to check in. I need to have my dress fitting and am waiting for our rings to be made. We are doing pretty good, what do you have left?

    There IS someone left, lol! So, I just dropped off my dress today for alterations and scheduled my next fitting for the 21st.

    I'm also in RSVP limbo, but I've decided to put my foot down. If guests have not responded by now I'm calling to let them know we won't have enough space. We've already had to add 2 more tables which means two more centerpieces, sets of table clothes and everything else in between.

    I plan to finish escort cards this week, finishing our playlist, just got our champagne flutes and we have a tasting scheduled for 4/2. Whew!! There's a lot more going on, but I know the characters are limited, lol!

    Stephanie I am still hovering but not around as much either. Although I am three months out, I am preparing to get the invites ready and need to find shoes and jewelry; also need to price centerpieces. I am definitely looking forward to your back and married pics!!

    I'm 24 days out and still on here semi regularly.

    Edit:

    We're really just working on small DIY stuff now, Our Banns have started, we've started premarital, I have to put the deposit on the pipe and drape we're renting but thats the last big thing to organize.

    other than DIY I'm kind of on pause for a week or two.

    I'm still around. Like Lora I just don't post as much. We are in the home stretch. Tonight I have to send in my final headcount and work on my timeline. So much to do, so little time left.

    I'm still here, too! I'm not quite at the 60 day mark yet, but I am only a couple weeks away from it.

    Yes, to the Pipe and Drape Lora, lol! I just got that done too. So glad there's a few of us still left. I still come from time to time thinking I'll learn something new or gain some kind of inspiration for a DIY, but it's really a lot of the same threads we've ALL seen since being here. Hopefully we'll all be sharing our "Back and Married" pics soon.

    I'm still lingering and I'm a little over a week away. I use this as my break from homework and wedding stuff. We are pretty much done. I still need shoes and a garter. I think I'm going to pass out next week lol.

    I'm still here too, but I am also strongly considering saying au revoir to WW as well. We'll see, lol. I had an appointment with the manager at our venue last week and we went over final preparations for our big day. She truly has been a Godsend to us, she has been so helpful to us. I had an appointment with our chair cover people today, and I went over final preparations with them as well. They have been easy to work with too, and they gave us a free bottle of champagne, which FH and I will enjoy on our wedding night. I still need to get started on our favors, which my MatronOH has offered to help with. We have gotten most of our response cards back, which is great. Things are falling into place. I will be glad when it's all over and done with, I'm just ready to be married, lol.

    Quite a few of us date twins still around Smiley smile My to do list consists of the finalizing payments and scheduling the final pamperings and such. I am definitely feeling the crunch lol. Trying to take a deep breath every time I get a little anxious. I am most excited about seeing family from overseas that I haven't seen in years and celebrating with FH.

    Hello date twin(s)!!! I still have lots to do, mostly paper stuff (menus, programs, etc.) I had to find a new makeup artist after a terrible trial this weekend, so I am going for one more this Sunday! I have a few more DIY projects, everything that needs to be confirmed, FH needs to buy my wedding ring (engagement ring came as a set), and we need to decide on prettymuch all the music.

    OH, and there is paying for it all!!! Ha! Smiley smile

    I hope I made someone feel better with my long to-do list Smiley smile

    You people better not leave. Those of us behind you need your wise advice in the two months. That's the time that scares me the most.

    Hey! I'm still here. I'm not around as much because I got irritated with the banning and people on here being so damn sensitive. But I still check in every few days or so.

    Let's see...my dress alterations start at the end of April. I still need to pick out a sash this weekend. I need to order BM gifts and parent gifts. I need to figure out if I am doing favors or not. I keep going back and forth on this one. And then of course botox and hair appointments. Finalize centerpieces. Order the dinnerware. Oh my, I am starting to freak out a little so I think I will stop now.

    Karen - I really expected the last two months to be WAY more stressful (especially since I got laid off a month before!) but it isn't bad! Just small details and waiting!

    What haven't I done? Purchased a dress, flowers, decided in centerpieces, started the backyard clean up (wedding location), decided on a ceremony or blocked the rooms. I got a ton of shit left to do.

    Thanks @Lora and others. Back and married posts are required. Glad Mrs King and Paris still chime in once in awhile.
