ah, the wedding

yes.. MY weddding.
**warning to all males out there- a very wedding, whiney, blah blah, post to follow**
apparently it's time to start doing some actual work for this fucking thing, because i got the feeling last night. you know the feeling. the "oh my god, your wedding is no longer 3000 months away, so you'd better start getting your shit together" feeling. we've booked the location. we have the dj. i have my dress. we thought we had a photographer, and trying to find a new one is proving to not only be really fucking expensive, but also not easy. i hate when my psycho organization works against me. and since we're not church type people at all, i keep freaking forgetting that we need someone to actually marry us. so yeah. i have to find one of those people too. not to mention the fact that i know no one where we're getting married, so i have no idea who's going to do my hair and makeup. and we all know how important that is. cause if mama doesn't look hot, then no one's going to be happy. i already know what i'm doing for the reception centerpieces, but i still need to find a florist to make everyone's bouquets and boutaneires.. good lord, how do you spell that anyways???? the cake is half done, half not. don't ask.

okay. so this weekend dammit. i am pulling out the files (yes, i have FILES for this) and i'm doing some actual work on it. cause the sooner it's done, the sooner i can just do nothing for it for months! yay! and then you won't have to hear me talk about it! double yay!! so i'm a mission this weekend. boyfriend when you read this- beware. you know how i get when i'm determined to get something done. *hiss*

this chick's blog makes me laugh. well not so much her blog, but all her little animations are so fucking funny. i love them. very creative that one. if she loved me, she make little jennster animations!! but she doesn't love me, so no animations for you!

Good Luck. I did the JOP thing to avoid all that work and expense.

Good lord woman. You have a dress and a place and a DJ a year in advance and you are still freaking out? I am with Christina and the bag. Breathe lady, it will all work out. It always does.

Catherine said...

i don't envy you, girl, not even a little... well, okay, maybe just a little, but only because I want someone to do my hair and makeup, too.

But you have FILES!! Everything is gonna be awright. :)

jen said...

Just don't run away and pretend someone kidnapped you, k? Cuz I don't think it would be cool for you to be turned into a bobblehead doll like the crazy Runaway Bride chickie! ;)

Kristin said...

Valium and a vodka tonic... calms me down every time!

If you're looking for someone to marry you, I have an idea for you to consider. You could have one of your friends become a minister online and then marry you! It's totally legit and I hear it only takes like 20 min to get "ordained". I have a friend who did it. He's going to be marrying his brother (that is, marrying his brother to his brother's fiance...you know what i mean). Anyway, if you're interested I can find out what the website is.

Becky said...

that site is cute!

well jenn, good luck this weekend. actually POINT good luck. jenn is on a mission!

Mike said...

WHAAAAA!!! I want some WHINE!!!!

Stephanie said...

Good Luck. Buy gum. I went through a million packs of gum to use up the nervous energy!

Alison said...

Stop worrying. It's still over a year away. Things will come together. It's all comin' together, Jerry!

Kevin Charnas said...

HANG IN THERE FUCKFACE!!! IT'S ALLLL GONNA BE OKAY!!!

ginger incognito said...

And I thought I was the only one insane enough to have files. . . . You'll be fine. And everything will work out. You have plenty of time to do some research.

On the "ordained friend" idea: a friend of mine did that, and he's officiated several successful marriages, including one in our office. You can always say, "And our lovely friend X married us, just like on Friends!" Heh.

I would have never trusted anyone to do my makeup!! Hair, my aunt did. Just have fun. It's the best advice I can give...not that you asked but y'know. I think that setting up the venue and flowers was the most stressful part. But again, I had a really small wedding!!!!! Great idea.

Tori said...

It always takes a wedding to get you to bring out the files...
But now that I've seen pics of the boyfriend, I'd be getting those files out too!

Piece of Work said...

Ah, the joys of planning a wedding. *Cough* *Cough*
You are smart to do it all now though so you don't have to worry about it later!

Izzy said...

I totally see why people use wedding planners. I did mine and I was so clueless. It was a lot of work!

Now get busy and I don't want to see a blog post from you until you're done, missy!

penguininthesun said...

I would probably procrastinate til the week or even day before... and scramble together a ding-dong cake.

haha...ding-dong cake.

mollymcmommy said...

CAT said...

Angry Dad said...

The Wedding Blog you listed is awesome for those animations!

1. what is boyfriend doing to help? he should be in charge of music and food. i would trust a man w/decisions like that.

2. re: makeup person: ask for recommendations from friends/fam in the area. or ask your photographer. if you can't find a rec, go to the mall, find a brand you like (i am partial to clinique) and a girl at the counter who looks

A. smart and
B. is wearing makeup you like.

that's a pretty good indicator. you might also want to ask if she's ever done wedding makeup before. also, you might pick someone who is close to you in age--they will probably "get" you better. if you are really freaking out, email me and i can tell you what to buy @ clinique so you can do it yourself. i used to do some freelance makeup artistry on the side. i can help.

3. you've already done a lot of the planning. give yourself some credit.

4. i can have my leftover vicodins to you in 2 business days.

5. this post makes me certain that i am eloping.
