Two Months till the BIG DAY!

Today marks two months until our big wedding day! Jen really thinks I should be freaking by now, but I'm not, yet. Last night we put the final touches on the guest list, wrote out the engagement announcement, and discussed what the invitation would say. We still have to tweak the invitation saying a little more, but it's coming along. Yesterday I finished the applique work on the church banner. It still needs a star, but that will come on Thurs. night, then I plan to baste it and start quilting yet this week. Tonight we meet with our sponsor couple from church and we'll have our third week of dance lessons tomorrow night. We're half done and getting better each week.
Mom is working on the groom's vest, bridesmaids dresses, and ringbearer pillow. She's also working on shortening my dress. I'm having my hair practiced on Sat. and trying on veils. We priced food for the reception Fri. night and know what we're having and how much it will cost. The showers are planned and I'm working on the cover for the guest book.
I really feel pretty confident that everything will come together. Jen'll be telling me I told you so in another month probably, but that's to be expected!
We helped my little brother move this weekend and had supper with my parents, brothers, and their signifcant others this weekend which was nice. I also helped my future MIL pick out her dress and shoes, so she's pretty much set as well.

You sound like being organized is one of your strongest traits. The wedding plans seem to be just where they should be at this time.

You did not mention flowers - but I bet that part is taken care too.

I say good for you! I wasn't stressed out, even on the day of our wedding. cool as a cucumber. you've got your schedule and are sticking to it, so I'd feel confident too. good luck!

You really have gotten a lot done and it is so exciting. I actually had a file folder which a friend of mine had which had all the inforamtion...DJ info, Groom's tux, Flowers, Invitations, Church rental agreement, Reception agreement, etc. basically anything we could need. Anyways we didn't need it at all. All I remember is seeing Mark and that I just couldn't wait to get to where he was. Enjoy the journey...the last two months go quickly.

Sounds like plans are coming along nicely. I took the easy route and eloped to a Sandals in the carribean and let them do the work... my family is still a little miffed I didn't invite anyone! It was a completely no stress day and was wonderful!
