Wine Corks

So, one month out and I've spent the past 24 hours thinking about purchasing 150 wine corks for $100... and this is something I really don't need, but would look cute and fit the theme. But... I'm pretty sure there are more important things I should be doing, like our ceremony program order, which I'm probably avoiding because it will be too much work. Arg! Was anybody else not making sense at this point in the wedding process?

    150$ for wine corks? We are getting ours for free... probably because we are a family of wine-o's. If you need a wine cork hook up- try checking out local bars/ wine bars in your area.

    i'm in the same boat with the programs....i'm avoiding mine like the plague....

    i agree with aeliza though, check the local bars. or winery's! There's one in burleson, we were thinking of having the wedding there!

    I MIGHT know of some you could borrow some. that's a big might though.  my mother has collected them for 6 years.....shes wanting to make a bar table out of them. i'm not sure how she'd feel about parting with them, but it'd only be for a short while....and then you wouldnt worry about having to try and sell the 150 you buy. its worth a shot. i'll ask :) i can't promise anything though

    I was definitely not making sense and with 2 weeks left before the wedding I finally gave up on smaller details and just finished what I needed to get done. After the fact I'm glad I didn't try to do anything else because it was perfect even without them.

    I kept my wits about me until about two days before (mostly because I was working up til then and didn't do any DIY projects). But then, I pretty much had a full-on meltdown the day of the rehearsal, and it was not pretty.

    Even worse, my mom was in town by then and witnessed it. The perfect way to show your mom you're a mature adult and ready to get married? Calling her up at her hotel, bawling and babbling about all the last-minute things left to do and ending it with "...and I'm hungry and we ran out of food in our house! Can you come over and bring me some breakfast?" *sob*
