80 Days

According to my little counter widget, I have 80 days until the wedding. That’s…wow, not a lot of time!

I’m still working on my physical paper invitations. Thank goodness I’m not doing these for everyone–I’d lose my mind! As it is, I’d been struggling with getting the reply cards to print straight. I solved that problem, but now I’m afraid I’m not going to have enough! (The paper invites are mainly for older relatives who are not technologically inclined or do not have email…)

Hmmm…what else is on my mind these days? Well, I’m going to be having two showers, and those are coming up soon. Rand’s aunts on his dad’s side are throwing us a couples shower here in Buffalo, and that’s going to be the second week of May. And just last week, a friend of my mom’s said she wanted to have a shower for me. That’s going to be Memorial Day weekend. I’m a little bit worried that we haven’t registered for enough items…there’s not a whole lot of stuff we *need*. Of course, it’s always nice to have new things. We are not registering for fine china (just some everyday dishes), silver, or crystal. Just not our thing. I don’t care enough to ask anyone to spend that kind of money, and I *really* don’t care enough to purchase pieces that we don’t get for the wedding. No China.

We have a friend who sells Pampered Chef, so we have a registry there (I think I need to show some love to that one…). We also registered at Amazon. I started that MyRegistry.com registry, but I very quickly realized that every single thing I was putting on it was from Bed Bath & Beyond. So I deleted it and started a registry at BB&B. I put some things on it online, and last weekend, Rand and I went to the store to add things like towels and sheets and other random items.

In the midst of all this madness, Rand and I are buying a town house. We close mid-May, so I’ve been trying to determine what we’re going to need for the new place. It’s so hard to do without being IN the new place! Gah.

I still haven’t found anything for my hair. I also don’t know what I’m going to do about makeup. I wear very, very little makeup on a daily basis, and Rand very specifically *likes* me without makeup. However, I know that I will look like crap in the photos if I don’t step it up a bit. I don’t know if I want to pay someone to do my makeup, but I’m thinking of asking my friend who used to sell Mary Kay for her help.

Everything big is done (well, except for paying for it!), but there are all of these little things that need to be taken care of. I’m so afraid I’m going to forget about something!

Rand and I still need to work on our music playlists and nail down the ceremony. We have time, I know, but not that much, and things are about to get really hectic! What do you do to keep from panicking? 😀

  1. One thing I added to our registry was dvds and games. I specifically registered for box sets-like seasons of Lost or the Star Wars trilogy. We have the regular-towels, sheets, kitchen wares-but I thought someone might get a kick out of getting us movies or games.

  2. Make fun of other people who are panicking. 😉

  3. When I stressed, I take walks outside. Sometimes if I stay indoors too long I get a bit squirrelly, and tend to get stressed more easily.

  4. I paid for someone to do my makeup for my wedding and I’m really glad I did. You’re right, you really need makeup for your photos, especially if you are doing black and white ones. If the person you pick is a good artist, she will be able to give you the right amount of coverage but still give you that natural look.

  5. I have a great make-up artist referral for you too if you’d like!
