Hey guys!! Hope everyone had a nice weekend. It is FREEZING up here in the Northeast, and I have never been more ready for springtime.
I had an awesome weekend and got SO MUCH wedding stuff done! On Saturday morning FI and I went to book his tux rental. We decided on a classic black tux for him, with an ivory vest and black bow tie, and white shirt with black buttons. I basically want him to look like James Bond. The groomsmen will all be in the same tux, but in grey, with navy vests and bow ties.
After that, we went to Fed Ex to do a test print of the invitations I designed. The 100% cotton card stock soaked up too much toner, so we'll have to try a different card stock. When we got home, FI's mom called him to let him know that his aunt booked our honeymoon flights for us using her airline miles! I really didn't think that would work out, so I was sooooo happy to hear that we are getting our flights for free! As soon as FI hung up with her, we booked our stay at Breathless Resort & Spa in Punta Cana. It looks gorgeous and I am soooooooo excited!!!!!!!!!!!
FI's mom also told him that she and his dad want to help pay for our honeymoon. Since my uncle has promised to help with that as well, it looks like we may be getting the whole thing covered thanks to our awesome families. I've planned our wedding budget so carefully, but didn't have enough room in it for the honeymoon, so I was just planning on putting that on a credit card. I'm thrilled that I may not even have to do that now. FI's mom asked us to start looking for places to hold the rehearsal dinner, and to let her know how many guests to expect for that, AND his parents also asked if we'd like them to handle buying all of the wine for the reception. FI is from the Finger Lakes region, which has a ton of great wineries, and I think it would be such a nice, personal touch, if the wine all came from around his hometown.
Sunday I drove into NJ for my makeup trial, where @Swazzle
met me to help make sure they didn't make me look like a troll. I looooved how my makeup turned out. I think I looked like myself....just 10x better! Photocredit goes to @Swazzle
. Then, we went to a diner for breakfast before we both drove home.
Whew. So many checkmarks off the list!
