But like every bride life gets in the way. Between work, traveling, family, baking (possible new business venture?), friends, being on a board, and the major thing....sleep, I have fallen behind. My type A personality does not approve! Now with a mere 99 days left I am in full panic mode, full throttle ahead!
I stayed up until 11:30 last night, tweaking and fixing our wedding invites, so i can hopefully print them today, and then begin the process of cutting, glueing, and compiling those beauties to get in the mail the beginning of May.
Because I love lists, this is what I hope to accomplish in the near future (rest of April):
- Print out invites and compile
- Address invites
- Make card box (same will be used for shower and wedding)
- Finish making thank you cards and envelopes for shower
At first glance the list seems doable...but they are all big projects. We have invited around 70 people to the shower. I know that not everyone will attend, but I would like to have near 70 cards and envelopes just in case, or if we receive other gifts before the wedding. I have almost enough envelopes (which are the easiest to do), but cards I only have about half, and boy are they time consuming.
I already have the boxes I need for the cardbox, but I still need more ribbon, fabric, an accessories to jazz it up. As for addressing the invites that will probably be a weekend project in itself, as well as doing everything for the actual invites.
Now throw in fixer upper projects at my grandparents house, a friend's bridal shower, Easter, and a trip to Buffalo the last weekend in April, as well as everything else going on that life has to offer. I can see migraines in my future.
