So things are really coming together now. I have been a bit on the stressed side lately though. I have been having little panic attacks off and on. I just have so much on my mind. I have a "list" in my head of things that need to be done and it overwhelms me! You see on TV that wedding planning can be a bit stressful but I guess they edit the REALLY stressful parts out. And I thought picking a color was hard!! I just want everyone to have a great time. Which, might I add, is a very hard thing to do. I want it to be the wedding of my dreams and also a great party for my family and friends. So...it's a lot of pressure! I think, if I was to do this all over, I would've gotten a wedding planner. I just assumed I could take all of the responsibility on myself. I was wrong! Granted, it will all come together but it is just hard to keep things straight! And with this being my first time planning such a big event, I don't really know the proper steps for all of this. They don't say this stuff in the "wedding planning books"!
So we definitely have a busy schedule ahead of us! Next month (as in August) we are jammed packed with appointments. I have dress fittings, hair trials, tux fittings, cake meetings, DJ meetings....should I go on?! Our calendar is booked!! I am glad we are finally down to the wire though...I cannot wait to see how things panned out.
Well enjoy the invites and I cannot wait to get responces back!!
Enjoy the weekend and as always, until next time...

Well 50 more days (or so) left. I recently had a meeting with the DJ to square away some important details about the ceremony and the reception. She let me know that she wants us to have a lot of fun and that is definetly the plan! While I was in Tyson's Mall, I stopped at a couple of hair places to see how much they will charge for wedding day hair. WOW....$250 jsut for an up-do! You have got to be out of your mind!! I did find a great place that was a lot cheaper than that though. Paul Mitchell's school. Yeah, they are students but they are about to graduate to become professionals and I think it would be so gratifying for them to be able to go home and say "I did someones hair for their wedding today". Wouldn't that be such a good feeling? I have no doubts about them at all. I don't think that Mr. Paul would have some random girls/guys in his school to mess up. That would ruin the Mitchell name. What do you think?
I have started to address the invites too so those will be out by the end of next week!! YEAH!! We are getting down to the wire now and getting more and more excited. I hope you guys are as well. Hey, by the way...how many people are reading this?! Leave a comment so I know that there is a point to writing this still!! :)
Well until next time!

A week from today is my bridal shower! So exciting!! I can't wait to see everyone! It should be a good time. I wanted everything in polka-dots and I think Heidi made sure that happened!! We are wearing polka-dot dresses to go with the theme as well...we will be adorable! :) Marcus will be going with "the guys" to a baseball game that day so they will be out of the way for the whole day! It will be nice to have a girls day!!
So the checklists are going down...but still a lot to do. I am feeling really good about everything though so no more stress. :) Now is the time for fun!!!
Until next time!
