29 Days and Counting

I was planning on doing this post yesterday or the day before even, but I never got around to it. Oops! Any who, we only have 29 days until the wedding (well 28 if you don't include today) and surprisingly I am pretty calm. Everything feels like it is done, even though it isn't but right now, I am okay with that. Ask me in a few days though and that might change.

Everything is slowly starting to hit me. I can't believe this is finally happening. I mean it feels like it was just yesterday that we set a date. Where has this year gone?

We have a lot going on over the next few weeks with my Birthday, my Bachelorette party, Christmas, New Years and so on. I just hope that we can find the time to complete everything that we need to. We may be pulling some all nighters or at least some late nights(I really hope not, but I guess if we have to we have to!)

Here are the things that I still need to complete:

  • Ceremony Programs
  • Wishing Tree
  • Final touches on favor boxes
  • Affixing signs to candy jars
  • Buy all the candy
  • Table #'s (In the process of designing these right now)
  • Call all guests who have not RSVP'd
  • Seating Chart
  • Place Cards
  • Ceremony music
  • Get those last few people to go get fitted for their suits
  • Wrap gifts to girls
  • Need to buy gifts for our guys
  • Final counts to florist for table arrangements
  • Final count to caterers
  • Meet with the Father at our church(Doing this tomorrow!)
  • Possibly Menu Cards(this is going to be one of those things that we do if we have time, but right now it isn't looking very good)
  • Final meeting with photographers(Doing this tomorrow!)
  • Final meeting with our DJ(Doing a phone conference with them next week!)
  • Need to get ribbon to our cake guy for the base of our cakes

I know there is more, but this is all that I can think of right now. So as you can see, we still have quite a few things to do, but I know that quite a few people are going to be helping us with this list. Aran's mom has already offered to help with the favor boxes, the candy jars, the place cards and the seating chart, so that is already a huge help. 

Moving on to non wedding related stuff, I wanted to let you guys know that sometime next week, I will be hosting a giveaway for this awesome digital scrap booking software. I love this software and I have been using it for things other than scrap booking, but you will have to wait until next week to see what I have been using it for.

My friend Lou over at Guinn and Bare It is hosting a giveaway this week for the very same software. So if you head on over to her blog before Sunday you will have a chance to win the software, but if  you don't win, come back over to my blog next week and enter again for a second chance. That's right people, two chances to win this software. That's like double the chance of winning! (Cheesy, I know!)

I hope everyone has a great weekend! And be looking out for that giveaway next week!
