Peeking in..... (miss y'all)

Hi Ladies....

I've been AWOL for a while.  I finally got moved to Houston.  My house in Maryland rented in one week (YAY!)  My focus recently has been unpacking and putting this big house in order.  I went from a 2 BR to a 5 BR, so I have a lot to do!

The wedding has fallen to the botton of my list.  I'm just not excited about it anymore.  I wish we had just taken a trip and gotten married on the beach or something.  Anyway..... I'm 3 months and 12 days out.  I guess everything is pretty much planned.  I was going to do some of the details myself (centerpieces and other decor).  My next move is to print my invitations and programs.  

 Now that I am not in the area, it's not so easy to do the planning.  I am going to miss the tasting for my venue (I'll send my mom). We haven't given a secon thought to a rehearsal.  We have a super small wedding party (2 attendants each) and not a lot of other participants.  Has anyone done a virtual rehearsal?  I was thinking about just writing out the details for each person and sending it to them.  We wont get to Maryland until Thursday afternoon and the wedding is on Sunday.  What do you think??

    We didn't do any form of rehearsal! So... I think you'll be ok.

    AND still, just let me know if you need any assistance! You know I'm just a phone call and a few miles away!

    Hey wedding weekend twin. I was wondering how your move went.  With such a small wedding party you can make sure you and FI know what to do and where to go and then let your wedding party know and then while you are all getting ready do a quick mini walk thru with them.

    Keep motivated our days are almost here we are just a few days from 100 days

    With such a small WP I don't think a rehearsal is needed.  We didn't have one and I just told my girls their order and it was all good.  You have way too much going on to be worried about such a small detail.  it will all come together the way it is supposed to and you will have a wonderful day.

    Glad your move went well!  You are almost there - I wouldn't worry about the rehearsal either, with such a small wedding party. Just give them clear instructions beforehand and they should be fine.
