    Wow... that is a huge DIY project.  At least it sounds huge in my head.  I bet they will all be great.  I can't wait to see all your hard work.

     

    I am with you on the RSVPs.  Mine are due May 1st, and I am missing about 1/3 of them.  I don't usually mail RSVPs back immediately, but I definitely get them back before they are due.  I can see a couple of stragglers, but this is crazy the number that we are still waiting for.  Good luck tracking everyone down!  I haven't decided if I am going to follow up, or just assume that they aren't coming.

    Right now I'm just about finishing the wedding design with our coordinator. Next on the list were finishing my BD book and starting on folding 1001 origami cranes, which I haven't completely committed to doing yet.

     

    But, our RSVPs were due yesterday and still over half of our guests have not responded. That means my re-prioritized first DIY project will be following up with everyone for their RSVPs.  I never understood how critical that step was to wedding planning. I am so guilty of late RSVPing to weddings. I guess one could say, "Karma".

     

     

    Wishing you continued warm weather for great outdoor painting and drying!

          Getting back the RSVP cards have been a pain for me too!! I think that most people at least in my case are probably thinking that I already know they are booked so why should they have to send the card back.Very annoying! But my biggest headache right now is I have 9 out of 73 people booked who have not paid their trip off yet or even booked their flights! My wedding venue requires a final head count and payment by May 21st and my fear is that these 9 people could at the last minute bail out either because they don't have the money or there are no more flights left and I will not be able to get my money back!!!! So I am not really sure what to do....aww the joys of wedding planning!LOL

            delgadot,

             

            I am in the same boat having the same venue and all. We currently have a commitment from 64 people. We are waiting for 20 solid responses. Our final numbers and payment are due this week, and I still have people telling me they aren't sure yet if they can get the time off of work, but they want to come.  I still haven't heard from others so I'm still trying to nail down as many non-committed ones as I can.

             

            I have decided not to pay for anyone who hasn't booked their ticket or hasn't confirmed that they are coming by the time I initiate the wire transfer. They will either get washed out in the overflow or not (Our venue allows for a 10% change for the same price).

             

            My recommendation to you, @delgadot is to pay for 3 out of the 9 people you are expecting. This would give you 6 additional heads for whom you "technically" wouldn't have to pay, because they would fall in the 10%.

                Hi Ladies,

                 

                I am passed my 2 month mark; only 57 days to go!  Paid our coordinator our last payment and bought our tickets so now we are officially attending our own wedding. I'm back to my boudoir book and working on my veil. What's everyone else working on?

                    IslandBride,

                     

                    I so didn't mean to stress you out! :(

                     

                    We're excited too!

                    I am pulling together the last pieces for our welcome bags, and we are working on the guys attire.  I am finalizing the flowers too, so they will be finished and shipped soon.  So much to do, but it will be here before we know it.  I can't wait!!!!!

                      hahaha... it's okay.  I get stressed whenever anyone mentions how close it is.  I feel much better after this weekend though and my FI finally picking out the guys attire.  We got a couple of them measured, so hopefully we'll get that done and be able to order next weekend.  A couple more details and then hopefully we can relax and enjoy the time until we are in Jamaica.
