February 2013 Weddings

Checking in - Updates!

Hi Ladies,
Just wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing!

We survived the storm of Sandy that came in to destroy eveything that I love about the Jersey Shore!  We still don't have power, but with all people lost I am so happy for what I have!

Needless to say, I have been working on the wedding planning!

Our invitations are being completed.  We purchased printable ones, but I'm dressing them up a bit with a stamp on the envelope and a flower on the actual invite.  So far so good and I'm loving them!

Still working on fabric flower bouquests for my girls, had to pause working on them to get my invitaions done, as I would like to get them out this week.

My brooch bouquet I ordered in complete and on it's way, so is my "guest book" it's a poster where you sign the leaves on the tree.

We are going for our cake tasting this weekend, and my final trip to pick out a bridesmaid dress (they are all wearing the same color but different styles).

We have pretty much settled on our music, except for the first dance!! lol!! We haven't found the perfect one yet, just ones we like a heck of a lot!

So how is everyone else doing?  I'd love to hear updates, maybe I'm forgetting something super important!!

Talk soon!!


Re: Checking in - Updates!

  • We are doing good. We are meeting with our venue again and the DJ on Tuesday to finialize some things. Most of my invites are ready to be sent out at the beginning of December. Just have to get a few more addresses. I just ordered pearl hair pins, which I'm excited about. One of the things we are still trying to figure out is the guest book. I don't really want just a book. We talked about a fingerprint tree or a sign the picture or the matte around it. I just thought of the idea of making light-weight, flat wood replicas of my fiance's guitars for people to sign. Haven't figured out if this will work or if I have enough time, but it would be cool. We could use them as decorations in our new house.
