100 Days

As of today we are exactly 100 days out from the wedding!!! Umm where the hell has the time gone? I can't believe that starting tomorrow we'll be in the double digits on the countdown. I suspect these will be the fastest 100 days of my life.

Yesterday while stuck yet again in the house for Blizzard 2010 2.0 I started working on printing out our invitations. I went online to download the print templates for the invites I purchased at Michael's then replaced the text on the template with our text. Sounds simple enough...3 hours later I was done with my 1st invitation. It took me a while to get the layouts to print just right since our invites have more wording than the templates. But once I was done I was VERY pleased with the outcome. Not to toot my own horn but I think they look far more expensive than they were. I sent pictures to both mother's so they could double check all of our spelling and grammar and they both LOVED them. I promise to post pictures once these are all done and in the mail. My plan is to continue to print and assemble these this weekend so that they'll be ready to send out mid-end of March.

Next on my to-do list is to start working on our favors. Once I have all materials and put these together I'll do a post on those as well.

This Saturday I'll finally get to have my hair trial which I had to postpone two weeks ago because of what else...snow. So far the forecast looks clear until at least Monday so I should be good to go. Hopefully I like what they do so I can book that and have another thing checked off my list.

Oh and tomorrow I will be having a very special guest poster. Get excited!

Very exciting only 100 days! :) Sounds like you're taking advantage of that bad weather and getting things done :) Enjoy your Valentine's Day!

You are right these next 100 days will go by really fast! Good job staying on top of everything. I was the same way and got to a point where I was ready to get married and still had a couple months.

How exciting! I’m at about 115 days right now, and can’t believe how fast the time is going by. We got our invites at Michael’s, too, and have been really happy with the way they’re turning out.

Single digits! So exciting.

Our invitations were quite the ordeal too. Although it was simple to get them printed by VistaPrint, designing the layout and choosing fonts and colors took for-e-ver. I don't think I've ever been so diligent about something in my life.

Wow, seems like you were just meeting and dating. Yes, the next 100 days will fly (but not nearly as fast as the day of). Thanks for blogging, it's been very exciting and romantic.

Whoa time flies. 100 days eek!!!
I'm sure those invitations look amazing! Can't wait to see them and your hair. Good luck, hon :)

Happy weekend, honey!

p.s. no they don't ship to Canada. Boo :(

the time really does go by so fast! hope you're hair trial sticks this time...snow--ugh!

Wow, the anticipation is building! I can't wait to see your invitations. I've been thinking realistically about what I could DIY for my future wedding, and invitations might be a good candidate. There seems to be so many DIY resources these days for doing your own invitations and save-the-dates.

Good luck with the hair appointment! Post pics!
