    OMG, please please please dont refer to the amount of time between now and july 11 in weeks! i freakin flipped out when i saw that! i much prefer the sound of 2 months, 1 week and x days. sound like a lot longer! man, my heart is racing now! we are getting freaking CLOSE! and i still have SO much to do!
    haha i know... 9 weeks sounds so bad... but i love it at the same time!! 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!!

      alright ladies, let's get it together!!

      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..

              My FI is doing the same thing, just keep inviting people. I like STOP inviting people, that is too funny

                Wedding dress purchased, no alterations
                Veil, tiara, shoes, other accessories purchased
                Palm fans purchased
                Wedding programs completed
                Favors picked out
                Selected centerpieces
                Selected buffet menu
                Wedding bands purchased
                Registry for bridal shower and honeymoon registry complete
                Legal paperwork complete
                Ceremony area booked
                Reception area booked
                Purchased some items for centerpieces
                Purchased candles for table
                Guest book completed
                Sand ceremony jar completed
                Children favors (mini pinatas) purchased
                Candy for pinatas purchased
                Airfare purchased

                Still Need to Do:
                Finish table numbers project
                Buy GMs gifts
                Finish personalized napkins
                Purchase rocks and floating candles for centerpieces
                Purchase Favors
                Find music
                Talk to WC (was supposed to be assigned at 3 months, still MIA) regarding ceremony music (harpist), dinner menu, reception decorations, table sizes, etc.
                Figure out a way to pack everything

                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.

                  So how many people have booked so far?
                  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.
                  I've been watching this thread for a while and finally decided to join in.

                  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
