Okay, this is a multi-post, I'll start with the Honeymoon!
We just booked our honeymoon in Hot Springs, NC (mountain cabins) --really, really beautiful place and we wanted something unique, and this could likely turn into a vacation spot to which we might frequently return in summer OR winter (it has a hot tub on the porch AND a fireplace along with its own kitchen with supplies and a gas grill!). WOOT!!
Also, I just have to "AW" about my checks so far... you can stop reading here if you want, I am just REALLY excited and might be forgetting something if you want to get into my head and help me out...
-Wedding Dress, Veil, Tiara, Garter Set
-Bridesmaids Attire selected!
-Groom and GM's attire selected!
-Ceremony site, Officiant, decor selected
-Cake Tasting booked with 3 top cake flavors!
-Got a cake topper for 50% off!
-Decided on a card box for the gift table
-Flowers decided... waiting to order since it is with Sams Club
-Reception site- need to finalize contract and menu and pay deposit.
-Called today to get hotel block ... waiting on a return call.
-Cut rented transportation... not on our list of priorities.
-Ceremony site decor decided (just have to execute it!)
-Invitations done, just have to order them!
-Bridal portrait location decided
-Found online vendor to turn our bridal portrait into canvas for our photographer who is an "old amateur" (although he does a lot of photography for our local news so I would hardly say he is an amateur).
Still to do:
-finalize Guest List and get addresses for everyone... (ugh!!)
-meet with photographer we have booked
-help MOG with rehearsal dinner (she's OOT)
-FI has to book wedding night hotel
-Ceremony music (ACK! we're both musicians and I'm a music teacher... this will be interesting)
Praise God for the time he's given me, and the fantastic vendors and venues we've found to get it all organized so quickly. :-) Thanks for reading, if you did. I'm so excited to have some of these details come together. I may have neglected to list it because I forgot, so please feel free to put up a note about something you think I forgot!!
July 16, Our Wedding Day, is also International Juggling Day!
