i'm trying to think of anything i've got done recently and i'm drawing a blank. oh i used my davids bridal coupons and got my free shutterfly photobook and 18 month calender. but that's not REALLY wedding related.
hmmm, lets see.
i punched half of the circles for thank you tags till i ran out of paper.
i designed our invite card but need to get it printed, and assemble the invites.
i researched the favor idea, we're gonna order 12 cases of 2 oz Tapatio hot sauces and make personalized labels, and tie the TY tag to the neck with twine left over from the MIB's.

still havent gotten my freakin parasols from luna bazaar, has anyone else had trouble with them? i've only heard good things, but i'm wondering what's up right now. i never even got a confirmation email yet. been too busy to email them. maybe i should get my butt off BDW and do something actually for my wedding once in a while

    I'm totally OCD about getting things done, I'm driving my FI and my parents totally crazy. I have to keep doing things otherwise I'll go insane, I don't think I've gotten any work done in the last few months.

    I feel your pain, I am having a huge issue with my shipment from Oriental Trading, its been three weeks. Its not really their fault, they shipped on time, its just stuck somewhere in Nevada. I honestly think my mail lady hates me, she keeps delivering my packages to the wrong houses and my super nice neighbors have to drop them off.

    well, at least you've got cool neighbors! our neighbors are 5 20 yr old guys in a punk band. nice good boys, but if they accidentally got a package of mine they'd probably try to smoke it or smash it before they brought it back. harmless kids :)

      OMG, i almost fell out of my chair laughing as I was reading this. I totally got this mental image of a bunch of kids trying to smoke my palm fans. It might actually work. We have a bunch of young families in our neighborhood, if it doesn't look like a diaper or make baby noises, they don't care.

        I have finished almost everything for our wedding, nothing else to do except loose more weight, haha

        and its sad, cuz I want to do more planning and shopping, haha


        actually, the only things we have to do is go to Cuba, get married, then get ready for our at home reception. Make sandwiches and decorate the backyard! lol


        I cant wait to get married, but I want the excitement to last!

        is there such a thing as the post wedding planning blues?! lol

          Mine too! WTF??
          He keeps looking at the pile of extra invites saying, "Do you need these?" and I am like "WHY do you ask" and he says because he wants to send them out! HELLO! Its stupid to send them out now!

            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
            That is awesome about the 40 people! I hear you about not wanting to start stuff that you can't finish! I have 50 wedding favors purchased and 40 people booked as of now but expect about 80 people, but can't say for sure. So I will buy 30 more. I just don't want to order too few or too much, you know?

            And DW brides are SO much more laid back it seems than these crazy bridezillas I see on tv! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Hooray girls, we are almost there!

            I leave for the Dominican Republic tonight to finalize all my last wedding details. I will come back with a full report for you guys. :)

              good job nicole! that is so awesome.
              i think i have so much to do still because of my at home wedding.

              for my cabo wedding, all i have to do still is make the boarding pass invites, and find a photographer. the rest is super easy thanks to a secluded beach and A/I hotel! no worries! at least i can pretend all my stress is gone cause i'm almost done with that! ha!
