3 Weeks?!!! Aghh!!

This past Saturday we hit the three week mark. Three weeks? Are you serious? I can't believe it! This past year has flown by and I don't know where it went.

With only three weeks left it is definitely crunch time. I am realizing what needs to be done and what we don't have time for and will just have to be cut. I don't like the idea of cutting anything, but everything that absolutely has to be done is done and these things were just extras that I was hoping that we would have time for.

As of today we are 18 days out for the wedding and I know that I still have quite a few things left to do. I have been trying to do a little each night and that seems to be working pretty well, but there are some things that we can't do yet because we are waiting on something else. Like our ceremony programs for instance. I have started working on them, but I am waiting on the final decisions on our ceremony music so that I can include that.

So with 18 days to go here is what my to-do list looks like;

  • Ceremony Programs
  • Wishing Tree Sign
  • Final touches on Favor Boxes
  • Affixing signs to candy jars
  • Buy all the candy
  • Table #'s (These are designed, we just need to pick pictures out for them and print them)
  • Get a hold of the last 6 or 7 that haven't RSVP'd
  • Seating chart
  • Place cards
  • Ceremony music
  • Make my garter
  • Finish Gift for Flower Girls(Almost done with this, but I need an iron. Who doesn't have an iron? Oh yeah, us,haha!)
  • Buy gift for Ring Bearer
  • Buy Groomsmen Gifts
  • Get my Brother and Step Dad to get fitted(I may have to drag them there, but it will be done this week)
  • Final Count to Caterers
  • Final Count to Florist for Corsages, Bouquets, Boutonniere's, and Table Arrangements,
  • Get our Marriage License(We are doing this at the end of this week)
  • Get all of our final paperwork to the church by this weekend
  • Take my rings in to get put together and cleaned
  • Final meeting with DJ's(This was supposed to happen last week, but we have had to reschedule twice, oops!)
  • Need to get ribbon to our cake person
  • Cut down the sleeves on the flower girl dresses(they are way too long, good thing they are made of tulle)
  • Pick up dress the week of the wedding
  • And lastly, find some time to relax and breathe

This seems like a huge list, but really they are just a lot of little things with a few big things. What is even more crazy is that I am still pretty calm. I have not been stressing out as much as I have been and I am very okay with this. One of my worries with stress is that I am a HUGE stress eater. When I stress I like to eat and I eat comfort food so chips & dip, fries, candy, burgers, if it has fat or grease in it, I eat it when I am stressed. So I have ordered instructed the fiance' to keep me eating healthy during these next three weeks. If he sees me reaching for that pint of Vanilla Blue Bell in the freezer, I gave him permission to yell at me and make me eat an apple or something healthy instead. This could be a really long 18 days now that I am thinking about it.

On a side note, it snowed here yesterday which is always cool in my book. However, I wish we would have gotten more so that I did not have to come to work today. I can dream right? I am hoping that some of it sticks around for Christmas or that we possibly get more on Christmas. It has been a while since it has snowed on Christmas and I am really starting to miss my white Christmas'. 

Was your list about this long with a little under three weeks to go? Or did you have more things done? 



  1. How exciting!! You're almost there!! And I also love snow - we haven't had any since Halloween here in Boston!

  2. my list was def. a mile just happens and just when you cross things off of it, you add 10 more! But it's such an exciting time...I can't wait!


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
