Do you ever hear this clock going off in your head and feel things aren't getting done as fast as you would like and this overwhelming feeling says there is not going to be enough time to do all that you want to do..... yep,,,,, I'm there. It is only the 1st of February and I feel I don't have enough time to plan a wedding in June. Now we all know, that is ridiculous. After all, my mom planned 2 weddings in 13 days! and everything was great!!!
This is on a bit bigger scale than mine though and it is an out-of-town wedding.

So we got the venue, check....

and we found the dress, check.....

and I am just going to keep going down the list! There is a wonderful site, The Knot, that helps you get completely organized.
I did make Tracy a notebook to keep all info in...

and WE started to think about all the parts and pieces of the reception. Now we just have to find an officiant. Since the wedding is in the ballroom of a convention center, we need someone that will come there instead of an actual church.... Hmmmmm..... I will have to think about this one.... Got a few ideas though...
So on with the planning and with God's help, I will stay calm and collected....
Oh so her colors are black, purple, silver and white... I said okay???? as I thought this could be VERY ELEGANT orrrrrr...... HALLOWEEN DRAG,,,,, HMMMM.... LET'S STICK WITH ELEGANT!!!


  1. You are the most organized person I know, you'll be fine...course, I don't get out much...ha!

  2. It was not a shotgun wedding FYI, but we did our daughters wedding in 3 1/2 weeks. Actually I would do it that way again. You didn't have time to fool around, decisions had to be made.
    We also recarpeted, tiled, painted and got a new bedroom set. Oh yes you can do it. It was at the Mission Inn in Riverside, CA. We could not have had a more beautiful wedding if we had had a year to plan it. God with God....

  3. I can't wait to read more about , keep us posted! to bad you are so far!!

  4. Good luck with the wedding. Looks like you are organized so planning should be easy. So many people make it harder than it has to be. I'm sure things will be just fine. Blessings, Tammy

  5. LOL. yep, know how you feel.

    most ministers of any denomination will go to an "off site" wedding.

    sounds like you've got it under control. it'll be FAB!

  6. Once you have a place, the rest is easy in that time frame! We did mine in 2 months!

  7. I bet it will be magnificient! "Keep calm and.." ..oh you know the rest ;-) You just take care of YOU and everything will fall into place..
