Only 60 Days...

Until our wedding!


I have to admit, I'm starting to panic a little bit. Mainly because in the next 60 days, I will be going out of town for Chris' cousin's high school graduation as well as my nephew's graduation so I will be losing about 2 weeks of precious time. We have done a lot, but there is still so much to be done! I am also getting very anxious about forgetting something. Since we are transporting everything from Georgia to Rhode Island, there are a lot of things I could (and will) forget. I know there are stores up there and we will have about 3 days once we are up there to see what we are missing and go out and get them. 

Chris and I went to Rhode Island last month to meet with our vendors and we were really happy with all of them. We had an engagement session with our photographer and were relieved to see that she is very easy to work with and made us really comfortable. I'm excited to see what photos she captures at the wedding. I also had my makeup professionally done and I was so impressed with how I looked. I know NOTHING about makeup, but she really did an amazing job and I felt really good about myself! We tasted our dinner menu and everything was delicious! We picked our wedding cake design and flavors. I'm excited for that and for Chris' groom's cake. I'm keeping the design a secret, but I know he will love it! I chose the flowers for my bouquet and think it will be really pretty. So I feel really good about all of those things...

One of my main concerns is the music. We did not hire a DJ so we will be doing all of the music ourselves. I have no idea where to rent the equipment we need and I'm also worried about the flow of the reception being awkward since we won't have a DJ to guide us. BUT, I'm also not willing to shell out $2,000 for that service so that's how we ended up here. Did any of you do your own music? I have read that a lot of brides have chosen this route, but I can't find a lot of details about how to go about it successfully. If any of you have any advice, I'd really appreciate it!

I guess the only other thing I'm worried about is getting all of the DIY stuff done. I am so sick of the computer and printer. Also, I spent all of this money on Avery labels and I can't get the stupid things to print correctly. The alignment is all messed up. It's really frustrating. I'm sick of ribbon and tape, card stock and glue. I never want to go to Michael's again.

I mailed the invitations today so next week, I will share the design of those and how I made them. I was happy with how they turned out, but am worried that they are going to get destroyed by the post office. Hopefully they arrive to the guests undamaged. Fingers crossed.

In unrelated news, Chris and I are going to the Hawks/Pacers Playoff Game tonight! It will be so nice to get out of the house and not think about the wedding! Go Hawks!
