2 Weeks Update!

Umm.. I'm getting married in 2 WEEKS from today. WHAT?! I'm so excited but it just doesn't feel real (will it ever? ).

Pretty much everything is done. Everyone is paid. The favors are packed (Disney pins and lanyards). The final decisions are in. The ties came in. I just have to pack, pack the gifts for my girls, make welcome bags, favor tags, and give our final count to Garden Grove and T-REX.

It looks like we'll have 53 people total at our wedding. Pretty good turn out considering we were expecting 60 and it is SO close to Christmas.

I am just waiting on the programs to get in from VistaPrint. Max designed them and they're supposed to be here on the 12th. I hope they turned out right!

I feel like there's more I should be doing but I really don't know what that is. It's really making me nervous!

Diana (planner) and all of our vendors have been absolutely WONDERFUL. I'm starting to get nervous about everything though- I just want it all to go well.

So, here's the agenda Diana sent me. Hopefully it can help another bride!:

YAY 2 weeks!!!!

That schedule stresses me out and its not even my wedding

At least you have a schedule so that you dont run around trying to figure out whats next, though.

Congrats on graduating!!! so exciting!

I feel like you are just very organized which is why you probably dont have that much left to do but feel like you should be doing something. I cant wait to see how everything turns out!!!

Congrats on the graduation Faith! I bet that feels awesome!

YAYAYAYAYAY 2 weeks!
Sounds like you have everything planned and organized, I wouldn't worry too much. I always here that if something IS missing or wrong you will probably be the only one to notice it (don't know if that helps at all!)

Congratulations!!!

I had no idea they sent a whole point-by-point agenda for the day, although it totally makes sense. The obsessive planner in me is excited already.

You are so close to your wedding! Sooo exciting!
