Why is time passing so quickly?

April 18th, 2016 at 06:30 am

I feel like I blinked and the weeekend was over. We're practically down to 30 days!

FH had his bachelor party this weekend. He had a great time paintballing and going out with his buddies. Sunday, we had a photo shoot. It's way too late to call them engagement photos, so it was more just for fun. We brought our dogs to a local park. After we did a bunch of photos with them, my brother took them home and we did some more shots with just FH and I. I'm so excited to get them back. Some of my favorite moments were playing with bubbles on a big green hill, making heart shadows, and sitting out on the pier while our photographer shot from the other side.

RSVPs were due Friday and we still have about 30 outstanding. I'm going to assume most of those are declines since it's a destination wedding, and I'd hope that if they were planning to come, they'd have made arrangements by now. However, we still have to track everyone down, so our numbers are accurate. I'm giving it until Tuesday evening in case people sent theirs out Friday or even Saturday.

I brought my dress in to an independent seamstress for the bustle. I also bought my reception dress and orange petticoat since the dress needs to be let out, and the petticoat needs to be taken in. Total for all 3 was $91. I really wish I had just taken my dress to her from the get-go. She was so sweet, and there was another wedding dress hanging in her shop the first time I visited, but I was just really hesitant to trust the structural alterations to someone who wasn't specifically a bridal gown tailor.

My goal for the next few weeks is to get everything as ready as possible, so I can relax and enjoy my wedding week. Only 5 more Saturdays to go!!

    That sounds like a fun photo shoot!

    I'm glad you found someone reasonable to do your alterations.

    I only had 6! people out of 26 invited actually RSVP.... I contacted the others by phone and in person. We'll have a total of 20 guests plus us. I don't get the not responding thing. Mr FT thinks maybe some of the people didn't know what RSVP meant ... More likely they just forgot to do it.

    I bet the next five weeks will really fly for you! I know the last five have for me! Smile

    I think the RSVP process has been the most frustrating part so far. Our count so far is at 66, but I think we'll end up right at 75 if the other ones I think are yeses actually are.

    Congrats on your wedding and I can't wait to hear all about it!

    You'd think people would be a little more considerate ... but probably mostly business.

    Thanks! I can't wait to hear about yours!
