ONLY ONE MONTH UNTIL THE WEDDING……..
Dear god help me….
This is basically how I feel about life today:
I don’t think I have a good answer anymore. Before, I could be like, “well I did this and this still needs to be done”. Whereas, now, I’m like….the wedding is happening. I don’t know what is left…I’m sure I’m forgetting things…I’m sure things have happened…I know nothing.”
I just keep playing this song over and over again in my head today:
And then I replay scenes of Arrested Development in my head, too (if you’ve never seen it…I’m really sorry and you should) which then makes me laugh, so it kinda works, actually.
But, literally, I don’t know what I’m doing with my life at this point.
Normally, when I’ve done these recaps, I’m listing out what I’ve done but I think at this point it’s just more, what HAVEN’T I done? That’s the part that will give me a heart attack at this point.
So, I still need shoes. Yes, I know…I should have them already, but I don’t. I think I’ve abandoned the blue shoe thing because it’s just entirely too hard to find shoes in that color that don’t have a 4 inch heel attached to them so I think I’m going for just a basic fancy kind of sandal. Of course, one pair that I found and liked was a cool $249. I know I can splurge for my wedding, but that’s just unnecessary. Since I am off tomorrow, I think I will attempt to find shoes, even if it kills me.
I still need flowers. Flowers are another thing I’m having a hard time spending a ton of money on. Mostly because…well…they die; also because they will make me sneeze eventually. I am most considering silk flowers but of course I don’t want them to look completely fake either, so it’s a struggle to find ones that are acceptable. I really only need flowers for me; the bridesmaids and boutonnieres for the guys. We had no intentions of doing flowers at the table, which would keep costs down anyway. But I’ve seen where the amount of flowers we would need would be an upwards of $300 and that just seems like a lot for things that will die in a couple of days.
I really REALLY need to write my vows….really really….
I don’t know what to say and I feel like that sounds horrible. But, I don’t want them to be overly sappy because that’s not me but at the same time, I don’t want to walk up there and be like….”yeah, I like you” and be done with it. So, I need to figure them out since a whole big part of a wedding is saying vows.
We’ve decided to not do favors (since we typically never take them and neither do half of the guests and we don’t want to have a lifetime supply of candle holders that say “Stephanie and Devon 6/24/18” on it, or whatever we would have done. But we’re doing to do bowls of Hershey’s kisses on the table, so it can be part of the centerpiece and stuff that they can just eat. And if they want they can take some home and whatever is left, we will happily eat; so I need to get those.
I also need to make sure our centerpiece fillers are here. Luckily our venue provides all the centerpieces; we just need to decide what we want in the vases we chose and how we want them filled.
Then, there is the seating charts/table assignments. Most of our RSVP’s are back, so we can start doing that but we’re still waiting on a few which will hold us up.
See…once I get started, it just starts spewing out of me.
But….I am still eternally grateful that all of the big stuff has been done. And I know all of the rest of this stuff will work itself out and everything will turn out fine.
It’s just a lot to do between now and 6/24/18.
