Wedding Planning

As I mark one thing off my wedding "to do" list, it seems like 4 more show up. I know that will happen more and more as the wedding gets closer, but its very difficult for me to not let it stress me.

Right now stress #1 is the guest list. We have nice tables/chairs for 144 people. We have 210 invited. We can always bring out folding chairs and long tables, but I'd rather not. No way to cut it though so I need to just let this one go and wait on the response cards to come back to determine a course of action.

#2 is the wedding musician. He also is a peewee football coach and wants to wait on his football schedule before committing. If it were up to me, we'd move on and find someone else. But he really is the best that we could hope for and I think Mr. Right has his heart set on this guy.

Mr. Right and I were supposed to go to the jewelry store so that I would know what sized wedding band to buy. He's already picked out his ring and everything. I seriously doubt that he's a size 13 and I'll luck out and get it for that price, but I'm glad to know that I'll be able to keep it within the $100 or less range and he'll still get something perfect for him (tungsten-carbide is very durable).

Right now I think I'm just stressing because I'm overwhelmed. According to my checklist on The Knot I'm not really behind on anything (excluding the musician of course), so I shouldn't freak. I'm almost done addressing the invitations - my project to finish this weekend - so that puts me ahead of the game on that by about 3 weeks.

For whatever reason I just have trouble remembering what the Bible says about worry/anxiety.


  1. I love the ring. BUT do know that if his ring size ever changes that metal can not be sized. I worked at a jewlery store for a few months when I got married and got my husband a tungsten ring. We have been married a year and a half and he already had to buy a new one.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Good luck with the wedding planning!

  2. Hubby has the same ring and it is a size 14. Its a great ring :)
