Oct brides

I think there are a couple on this board. Two weeks for me! Eek! How is everyone's last minute planning going?I still have to:-finalize music-meet with the calligrapher (yeah, I left this one late)-write my vows-pick up my dress-find lingerie for the wedding night-send out the rehersal dinner e-mail (everyone has the details, it just reminders)-finish my shower thank you's (it was only two weeks ago)I think (hope!) that's it.

    I'm not an Oct bride, but I just wanted to point out that if you look at the Canadian Knotties bio, it turns out that there are actually quite a few of you! Yay for you guys!

    I'm an October bride — next October. I'm looking forward to the next month so I can get an idea of what we might be able to expect in terms of weather. It's Oct. 2, so we may be able to hit the tail end of Indian summer.How did you guys manage dealing with planners and vendors as your planning went through peak season? Did they get distracted?

    I have 30 something days left since I we are getting married on Halloween. I still have to: -Decide on what we're going to eat, we're having our reception at home and our guest list is small. We're thinking that most people will have eaten before hand so it's just a matter of finger food really. -Finalize a play list -Get the Mr. to a mens store to try on vests -Meet with our JP. We have her booked but we haven't met her. -Meet with our photograher. She's a friend of the families so we know her and her work well it's just a matter of deciding where we want to go and what style we all dig. - Order cupcakes. Our baker said 2 weeks in advance was all they needed. I am sure I will run into more things along the way but that's all I can think of for now.

    I've got nine days left to go and things are starting to get a little frantic. It doesn't help that I got REALLY sick this week and had to rechedule my hair trial and picking up my dress. Oh well, everything will work out, and if some things don't happen? Not a big deal! We already had to scrap doing OOT bags because I just ran out of time.
