October 2014 Weddings

10/4 ladies - single digits!!!!

And I'm obsessively checking the 10 day everyday, not sleeping, and generally screwing things up with my space brain at work.

What's left? How are you feeling? Are you ready?

  • I'm a wreck! I'm wishing I would have taken a day off this week to work on wedding stuff. It's not like I'm focusing on anything at work anyway. My fiance leaves today to go pick up his parents (who are staying at our house...sigh) and won't be home until Saturday night.

  • I just checked our 10 day forecast! It's looking okay.. but not as sunny as I was hoping!

    The single digits really made it "click" in my mind what's about to happen! It's getting real!

    What are you guys doing to prepare now?

    Last night I made my day-of emergency kit, started packing for honeymoon, wrapped presents for MOH & FI and wrote FI a letter to go with his present. 

    This weekend I will:
    -Bachelorette/lingerie party
    -Clean vases & champagne glasses
    -Organize all the centerpieces & decor
    -continue packing for honeymoon
    -call all my setup helpers to give them instructions
    -meet with MC & DJ to go over timeline


    I'm so useless at work right now.. I kind of feel bad, but I just cannot concentrate!

  • I'm in the same boat as most of you :)

    So many little details to take care of, but it's all nicely coming together.

    Also, TOTALLY USELESS at work!

    @bekt14 - What did you put in your emergency kit?  I'm in the processing of making mine and could use any suggestions you might have! I don't want to go overboard but want to have a few things just in case.  So far I have:

    Advil

    Tums

    Sewing Kit

    Deodorant

    Clear nail polish

    Nail file

    Eye drops

    Kleenex

  • I suppose I should add that I'm a total crab at work right now. I swear it's like everyone is turning things in incorrectly or half finished or late, just to see what sort of reaction they're going to get out of me.

    This weekend I plan on organizing all the things in our house. Separating the stuff that goes to the reception site from the stuff that goes to the church for the ceremony from the stuff that goes to the church for the rehearsal dinner.
  • My day is on the 5th and I'm obsessively checking the weather forecast too, for the wedding zip code and the honeymoon destination! FI told me not to stress or obsess over the predictions but I can't help it!

  • We just finally got a new bartender today - yay!

    This weekend, I am going out to our venue and dropping off all of the welcome bags for all of the guests, and making one last (hopefully the last) shopping trip to stock up on whatever additional alcohol we need for the reception.

    I went to Wal-Mart and literally bought every single item on the travel toiletries section (where they have mini-versions of everything). I got a couple, some for taking on the plane to honeymoon and some for emergency kit. 

    Here's my emergency kit:
    -Vaseline
    -Q-Tips
    -Kleenex
    -Flip flops
    -Hand Towel
    -Mini-sewing kit 
    -Safety pins
    -Breath Mints
    -Tide Stick
    -Mini-Hair spray
    -Clear Nail polish
    -Chap Stick
    -A variety pack of band-aids
    -Blister patches
    -Fashion double sided tape
    -scissors
    -nail clippers
    -tweezers
    -Wrinkle remover spray
    -Bobby Pins
    -Lotion

    There's probably more that I'm forgetting. 
    Let me tell you girls, in past weddings I've been in- we have used this stuff like crazy. You don't think you'll need it now, but something will happen and you will be SO glad you have it!

    Don't forget to put together tip envelopes for the vendors you'll be tipping the day of the wedding. Have everything allocated out and labeled so you can just hand them out (or have someone like your mom, MOH, whoever, hand them out) the day of the wedding.

    Those are AWESOME by the way. I keep one in my purse!
  • I also read that having chalk in your emergency kit was a good idea. If you get something on your dress early on in the evening, apparently you can color over it with chalk to hide it (at least for a little while). I'm sure it doesn't work 100% of the time, but for $1 worth trying! :)

    Which vendors should you tip on the day of the wedding? I assume not anyone who includes a gratuity line in the contract?

    I started checking the 10 day weather forecast yesterday. They are calling for rain here on 10/4. Our ceremony is supposed to be outdoors so I'm bummed.

    @Ginpup We plan to tip our photographer's second shooter, the DJ's assistant, and the catering waitstaff. You should also plan to tip any delivery people (unless it's the actual business owner making the delivery). Our florist delivers her stuff directly as does our baker so I'm not tipping them. Also plan to tip any bartenders the day of as well.

    Don't stress over the rain! They were calling for rain the day of my sister's wedding the entire week before but the day before it cleared up and we were able to have her ceremony outside. The forecast will change 50 million times between now and Saturday!
