Why I'm boring

So I had a super low post count for May, and it occurred to me that it's because I am spectacularly boring.

Here's what I've been up to:

-Calling Trader Joe's to see when we need to place our wine order. We don't have to place it until 5 days before the wedding, which is great because that way we'll have a solid guest count. I'm going to order 2 weeks out because I'm psycho.

-Making an appointment with our caterer for today to finalize the menu and get some tips on where to purchase our beer from. Also maybe her perspective on what a good signature drink would be.

-Finishing our wedding ceremony.

-Filling out worksheets for the photographer and DJ.

-Deciding on adding an hour of time to our reception, so now it'll end at 12:30 instead of 11:30.

-Figuring out itineraries for photos and the reception. Full itinerary to follow once we figure out how much time the hairdressers need.

-Getting the presents for our bridesmaid's, groomsmen, ushers and parents finished up.

-Learning how to dance (which was so not boring, but I'm all about being thorough here).

-Finishing up the card box.

-Mailing out invite stragglers and gathering the last few addresses.

-Sending out an e-mail to the bridesmaid's to update them.

-Hair trial is scheduled for Saturday.

-Registry monitoring to make sure they weren't emptied for the 3rd time.

-Hiring bartenders.

-Working on the playlist for the reception.

-Lots of other miscellaneous stuff

Boring boring boring. I'm still wedding planning, but it's just boring and more nitty gritty details and less fun stuff.

Are you out of the fun stuff and in to the not-so-fun stuff?


  1. I'm in the in-between stage. I'm still doing some fun stuff, with a lot of tedious stuff thrown in. And you reminded me that we need to finish registering at some point. Our registries are all over the place.

  2. It may be "boring" but it must feel nice to get it all done! Now that school is over and I have more free time, I need to get more of the "boring" stuff out of the way.

  3. That what the last month has been for me too! So boring, I hate it. I want to go back to shopping for dresses and looking at colors!

  4. It must feel so good to check things off that list though!

  5. Yes. All of the niggly must-do stuff. Although we're actually going to start working on the ceremony, which I'm looking forward to doing. Oh, and wedding band shopping is tomorrow! But paying the DJ? Discussing floor plans with the caterer? Figuring out shuttle options? Getting quotes for booze? Zzzzzzzzzz.

  6. Registry emptied for the 3rd time! WOW


Hearing from you all makes my day!
