11 days

I can't believe it's only 11 days away! J decided we're moving all of my stuff on Thursday of this week, I think he knows that I'm stressing out about moving.

Things I've learned so far while planning and things to note:
  1. I suck at invitations. I wish I could have sent out an email invitation but that wasn't possible. It seems like there are so many steps, print them, stuff them, seal them, address them, return address them, stamp them... ugh. Not my favorite thing to do during the planning of our wedding.
  2. Keep all of your wedding stuff in one place NOT in 3 different places, I can't find the Mother's presents right now!
  3. Everyone needs a dog or a pet, something that loves them unconditionally. It really helps when you're stressed, believe me.
  4. When you're husband to be says he wants to help plan the wedding, what he really means is that he wants you to make him feel involved but doesn't care what the wedding is about as long as he gets to marry you at the end of the day.
  5. Picking out music is tricky for a reception.
  6. Give your mom a project during the wedding that is strictly hers. Trust me on this.
  7. Time flies when you're engaged, while at first it may seem like its dragging, plan, plan, plan, buy, buy, buy, finish all projects early. I can't believe it's been 7 months already.
  8. Esty.com is a God send for people on a budget.
  9. Learn to delegate. This is something I learned in college that has helped me out.
  10. Buying things online is the best way to get stuff for your wedding- it's like Christmas morning every time you check the mail. I LOVE it. Speaking of, check out what came in the mail today....

Things left to do:
  1. Programs
  2. Decorate ceremony site and reception hall
  3. Meeting with DJ
  4. Send list to photographer
  5. Finish up the Itinerary
  6. SAMS CLUB with Missy
  7. Buy Fine Point Sharpie, twine and roses the day of


  1. I can relate to this post. I do not envy you at all right now. I was so stressed right before the wedding bc I am a control freak and I actually didn't have a hand in decorating mine at all (I picked it all out) but I did not know what it was going to look like until I arrived but THANKFULLY I was beyond satisfied.
    It will all be perfect. Our cake was slanted as you remember and I COULDN'T HAVE CARED LESS...but that is what I get for wanted so many layers..I think it was 7 tiers...I dunno but that was my fault for being over the top.


  2. I am so excited!!!!! I will be there to help is five days :-)!!! YAY
