So it's been over a month since I have done anything wedding related... well, not really. It's just been over a month since I wrote about doing anything wedding related. It has also been over a month since I requested Brandon write a guest appearance blog post. Chances are, that will never happen. In fact, I think if he does ever write a blog post, it will be the day after our wedding and the post will read something along the lines of "This is Brandon and I am now married." The end. That's it. But that's Brandon. Simplicity -- one of the many reasons that I am absolutely in love with him. Vomit. Now that that squishy moment is over, let's really dive into this. If my wedding was a pregnancy, I would be two weeks preggers. Now that doesn't seem like a very pregnant person, but think about it -- nine months is really not a long time in the big picture. In fact, there are just 255 days until the wedding. That doesn't even sound like a lot anymore, and I think that scares me a little bit. I mean January is just a few days away, and then we will be in the same year as the wedding. How did that happen? Am I going to get everything done or am I going to somehow botch this and forget something like really important?
Yesterday I went to Staples and I bought postcards. Now we will have something to put the church address and registry/hotel information on for the invitation inserts. I also finalized wording on both the invitations (and response card) and the program. I also learned that Staples can't print our invitations, so it looks like this little lady will be doing it all. I am definitely ok with that though. In the long run, it will still end up being less expensive than if I had custom ordered my invitations and had them printed for me. I think I will start printing the postcards inserts and the invitations in the next few days. I think it will make me feel a little bit accomplished. Between now and the wedding there really isn't too much that we have to do and that rocks... or is there? I just don't know.
I mean here are the things that need to be accomplished:
- Groomsmen need to get tuxes
- Bridesmaids need to pick dresses
- Girls weekend with the bridal party... not required, but desired :)
- Find the freaking wedding shoes already
- Head count for favors/vases for centerpieces to Aunt Patti
- Ceremony music
- Buy wedding bands
- Address and mail invitations
- Marriage license
- Seating chart :)
- Get Tan ... obviously a top priority for me!
