yeah, this is my exact trouble, trying to figure out how much is needed when for what! depending on how long each thing takes to come in once ordered, then the timing on is it something that i need to make with it when it gets here? or just store until the big day. aaarrrgggghhhh! why did i decide on a 10 month engagement instead of a year or more? wink.gif

My biggest problem right now is finishing all the computer projects I've been working on. I just need to find the time to sit down and do it already! I've been procrastinating like its the gym or something! AAARRRGGGHHHH!
me too!!! once this semester ends i'll finish up my loose ends but it feels like there's so much. smile124.gif

if it makes any of you feel better, my civil ceremony is in july (although we still have no date set because FI's mom is trying to figure out what friday she can take off work to fly here with his dad for it), and so as a result i have NOTHING done for the at home wedding because i cant tell anybody a date. i do have a dress, but it arrives in 2 weeks and then has to be altered.

 

as soon as i know the freakin date in july, i have to tell our officiant (a friend), get my photographer friend to see if theyll take photos of the ceremony, and then find a place for dinner....book my hair appointment....etc etc etc. i had a panicked moment earlier today, but thank god only 6 people will be at my civil ceremony and i dont have to worry too much!

It looks as if you put days of work into these beautiful Invites and if I were you I would be wanting to get them out ASAP too. Send! Send! Send! How many people will be getting invites?

I am new to BDW and wanted to wish you the best of luck! I am expecting a baby in 4 weeks.

I have done nothing. Except make a baby. :) I am one up on you guys. ha!

 

Seriously.....I have done squat. I suck. My summer vacation starts June 6th, so I actually have over a month and a half to do everything....I am waiting until the last minute. I am a Taurus, therefore I procrastinate. :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
