haha i know... 9 weeks sounds so bad... but i love it at the same time!! smile159.gif i'm kind of at a point where if we were leaving tomorrow, i'd be happy with what i got done.. so anything extra is a bonus!! popcorn.gif

alright ladies, let's get it together!! foshizzle.bmp

 

i haven't done CRAP.

 

my rsvp date was may 3rd and so far everyone except 4 people replied. i thought we were almost all set, until fi decided he really reeeeeally wanted to invite 5 more people!! and 3 of them are really trying to make it happen. it's not that i don't want more people- i just want it settled!!

 

 

maura, i got all of the etsy necklaces in. the second ones i ordered (with the pearl and crystal) are MUCH nicer than the first one with just the starfish. the chain on the second is really nice quality. i recommend her stuff. the other one is fine, just not awesome. and i like awesome better.. smile78.gif

I think that's about it, i'm sure I'm forgetting something important. Its crazy how much we got done, but what's left is the really important stuff and it would be nice to get a WC assigned to finalize things. smile41.gif

we have 25 booked right now with 4 more maybes. most of me doesn't mind that fi keeps inviting people cause our package goes up to 40 and i won't have to pay anything more for them. but i'm kind of unmotivated to do place cards and stuff like that until i have a final count!! i hate starting projects that i know i can't finish.. so i'd rather just not do it at all. smile105.gif

i haven't talked to my wc either!! i emailed her and asked when and she said she promises she'll be contacting me next week. so again, i've been doing everything pretty halfass because i don't know the details. doesn't that seem so silly? with 2 months to go i have no idea where i'm having my reception. if we were having a "normal" wedding we'd be FREAKING OUT. dw brides are awesome cheer2.gif
