    Only 54 days left!! I start back to teaching on Tuesday, so I'm scrambling to get things done before I have absolutely no time to myself.


    Your wedding date:  10/4/14 

    Sending wedding invites:  8/1/14 DONE and getting RSVPs back!

    Shower date:  8/9/14.  It was a vintage/shabby chic garden shower which was absolutely beautiful!

    Bachelorette party date:  9/13/14.  The girls and are I getting massages and foot scrubs, heading to my fave place to eat, and having a good old fashioned slumber party!

    First dress fitting:  8/16/14. Hopefully, I won't need a lot of work done.  I want to add in cups and a bustle, but I'm terrified I won't fit into my dress.  I ordered it in February and it was delivered in April. Ahhh!!!

    Hair trial: 9/14/14. I think I look best with my hair down, but I don't want to mess with it all evening. Hm... we'll see!

    Makeup trial:  9/26/14. A little too close to the wedding for my taste, but what can you do?

    Wedding date - 10/12/14


    Sending invites - Sent them out a few weeks ago :) Getting lots of responses already!


    Shower date - 8/31/14


    Bachelorette party - 8/30/14


    Fitting date - No clue. I called a lady yesterday that was reccomended by a shop in my town since they cant take any more brides (overwhelmed), and she said she normally doesnt do fittings until about 2 weeks prior! She does it out of her house. So no clue when I'll be doing it. Dress really just needs to be hemmed and sash sewn on...


    Makeup trial - Did both my hair and makeup trial in late June

    Last hair trim: August 28th!
