    Final countdown - 10 days to go!

    I know I'm not the only July 11th bride on here.  How are you holding up? 

    I was feeling really overwhelmed last week, but this week is much better.  And I'm glad I've been getting some of my emotions and anxiety out before the wedding! 

    Seating chart, done
    Song list to band, done
    Photography list, done and appointment with photographer next week for final details.
    Dress, picked up, just needs to be pressed.
    FI picked up the marriage license. 

    Next week is about the final details meeting at the venue, finishing programs, doing escort cards, writing a lot of checks, and then, starting on Friday, enjoying the wedding weekend!

    Congrats LuvRI!  You are almost there!  Hopefully you can get everything done and be able to relax the few days before the weekend.  (I am 10 weeks away and am terrified that it will be 10 days in no time!!)

    In my opinion, the hardest part is the last 2 weeks!!  You sound like you have accomplished a lot and should feel great!

    Their one and only hit. I've been told in concert they use to play it twice since no one knew their other songs.

    All's well on our end...for now...

    I've been told that any phone calls you get the last week are not good news (people cancelling, all that kind of thing), so I'm bracing myself for those kinds of calls. 

    Other than that, just trying not to stress out about the little stuff and remembering that this is about us, and that's the most important thing.  I can't wait to walk down the aisle and see him waiting for me!

    I was running around like CRAZY 2 and 3 weeks before the wedding.  Errands every day after work, lots of fast food.  But the week before the wedding was pretty calm.  Just a few quick errands like picking up my dresses.  I tried to be as relaxed as possible.  Hopefully that will work out for you too!

    I'm a 7/11 bride as well...beginning to get really nervous/anxious waves.

    I have the favors, OOT bags and seating done, just need to type up the place cards..Def. need to contact the DJ with more songs. Oh and I need a dress for my rehearsal dinner. (Totally forgot about that one until this afternoon)

    The annoying phone calls have already started. We had a few people add a "date" or two to their response card when they were invited as singles. We also had a child care inquiry. Ugh.

    I'm also 7-11!  I can't believe how quickly the past year went by!  I'm picking up my dress on Friday and finishing the OOT bags this weekend with my mom.  So far all I have are the bags, potato chips, and chocolate.  I need to hit BJ's bad!

    Re: Final countdown - 10 days to go!

    Yay 7-11 brides!! Can't believe it is 10 more days.  I am hoping next week will be better as you all say.  This week has been crazy, I have sent probably 100 emails and made so many phone calls. I thought everything was done!!  I am such a planner and have had things like favors, place cards etc. done for a while, so I thought there would be nothing left to do! I guess I was wrong, this last minute stuff is killer.     Family comes in from oot next week so I will be visiting and going to the beach with them, I will need it to relax. And maybe I will shut my phone off!  
       Good luck these last few days to the other 7-11 brides!  :)  


    Any other 7/11's getting married in boston?  Are there going to be brides running around the city?

    The Bucuti is where we stayed for our honeymoon!!  You will NOT be disappointed.  However, before you go, email them and make SURE your room is in the middle of the hallway.  The doors on both ends slam (you can't help it) all night long.  Our first room was on the end, and we were up all night (not in a good way).  They moved us, but they didn't have a room until the next night so we had to suffer one more.  That was our ONLY complaint, and we will definitely stay there again.

    To LuvR, preserves and brighton, BEST WISHES!!  It will fly by, and all the little annoyances and big nerves will suddenly be distant memories when you kiss the first time as a married couple in front of your dearest friends and family.

    Our wedding is at a winery in CT and then we're heading to Europe the next night.  Can't wait!  I just hope it stops raining!

    El Gaucho and Fishbone are GREAT!!!!!!!

    No tastings yet, not getting married until 9/2010. But I have been to a Marriott wedding and have eaten at the restaurant at the Newton Marriott and never had a bad meal there. They have great food!

    I had a dream that I was in Aruba last night! So jealous!

    Hey Brighton,
    When i was looking for the ind. packs of tylenol/advil for the OOT bags, I was shocked BJ's didn't have them.  Staples did though!  Just thought I'd save you the panic if you were looking for them too!
