I have become obsessed with checking my wedding website hits and RSVPs. I think the instant gratification of the internet made me worse than I would been waiting for the mailman. On the third or fourth day after the invitations went out every time I hit refresh there were new ones. After a day or two of hourly responses, they stopped coming in at all. I know I gave people until the 21st of February, but I thought there would be a steadier stream of replies. I wonder if most people who haven't replied aren't coming and feel bad telling us. I hope not. We understand having jobs, kids, and medical issues that make travel/a Wednesday night wedding tricky. I never expected 100% attendance. It's ok, to reply no, I won't take it personally. In the meantime, I need a twelve step program to help me get my obsessive RSVP checking.

I've been saying 6weeks. The wedding is in 6weeks. Someone said "You guys ready? Next month, right?" Oh, my. We're crafting our brains out. Centerpieces, shirts, place cards, signs, etc...It's fun. I can't believe how soon it is. Mike even got on the phone with his boys. They have a bachelor party camping trip in the works and they all know what to wear.

It's been finishing touches and meetings with vendors again. It's so strange how long since I've seen them. I'm also having a little bit of the whole "hind sight is 20/20" experience. Now that I know what the whole day will look like there are things I would have done differently. It's so silly to pick out your clothes for a party a year ahead of time for example. Sigh. It'll be fabulous. What ever else the choices I've made are they're very us. We're 2weeks from being able to say one month until the wedding.
