Getting things accomplished in time by the deadlines is really stressful. REALLY STRESSFUL. I decided to take a month off for planning the wedding over the holidays, and got back into planning in January (Christmas season is an awful time to plan a wedding). One month off can put you so far behind schedule. Today, I booked the videographer and it felt GREAT! I have set up appts all next week for flower quotes.
After that, I can start attempting to make my own invitations. I am also going to do a mock run of diy projects. (sea salted caramels for wedding favors... to see if the recipe is easy enough to make before the wedding). I am also going to be making a test batch of bloody marys for the bridal shower. I will be making those (I know you aren't supposed to help with the bridal shower, but sis is pregnant and cannot be the taste tester. Lol) I will be so happy to nail down all of the vendors next week, and go on to making my wedding my own with my own personal touches. I feel like I am finally getting into the spirit of things and starting to enjoy the wedding planning process. Enough of the to-dos are done that I can focus on the wedding itself! Yay!!
