The wedding is approaching fast and I’m definitely starting to freak out! We sent out our save-the-dates last week (via email, yay for free!), got our guestlist all organized, have booked/bought all the major things (limo, flowers, wedding dress…) but there is still so much to do! It’s definitely times like these when I question why we are having a big ol’ traditional affair instead a small casual get together like so many other smart PF bloggers are choosing to do.
Then I remind myself that I was the one who wanted all this, the big dress, the flowers, the whole shebang, so I just better suck it up buttercup! But still, I can’t wait for all this to be done and over with. Right now we are in the midst of finding a printer to do our invitations. You’d think it wouldn’t be that big of a deal to find a printer to print 50 invitations on semi-thick textured card stock, but apparently it’s impossible. I really don’t want to resort to printing them at home because that’s what a friend of mine did and she warned be against it.
God I can’t wait for this stupid 30-day no drinking challenge is over. I need me a glass of wine! A big one!
Ok, enough of that. Here are some awesome blog posts from this week that helped me keep my mind of wedding crap. Enjoy!
