August 2010 Weddings

Huge wedding weekend

So we're off to Chicago (where the wedding is and I'm from) tomorrow for the first time since I moved to Baltimore 5 months ago. While we're there we have a cake tasting, a caterer tasting with a potential new caterer (our first went out of business), we get to see floral samples, meet with our priest, I have my first fitting, then I have a bridal shower and bachelorette party for a friend who's wedding I am a BM in in June. On top of all that I get to visit with my family, friends and kitties! So I'm off for a busy wedding weekend. What wedding related plans is everyone else taking care of this weekend?

Re: Huge wedding weekend

  • That's exciting!  We go to Maine in 2 weeks to spend a week there doing the same kinds of things!  I'm sure it will be great to be there, getting things taken care of.  

    This weekend we are :
    -looking into vases for centerpieces
    -thinking about possible side dishes
    -tomorrow I drop my dress off, so hopefully the seamstress will be working on my bustle and taking off the straps
    -shoes for myself and FI
  • That sounds like a lot of fun, but you definitely have a full weekend! Have fun up in the chi!

  • Wow you're off for a whirlwind of fun! I hope we:

    -Finish booking our last hotel for honeymoon
    -Send check to pay off invites
    -Pick up my veil (I hope!)
    -Find shower dress???
    -Finish buying supplies for "guest book" table and do a mock-up

    Plus I have wedding stuff to help with for my best friends wedding next month like a candy bar mock-up and help choreograph her first dance! 
  • Have a blast going home and getting to spend time with your family and friends!

  • Busy weekend in Chi town!

    Things I SHOULD do this weekend:
    1. Get the GM butt's in gear and get them fitted for their tux. I'm pretty sure I am going to have to physically take a few there personally, including my brother and FI
    2. Search for some damask wrapping paper and buy a couple of battery operated candles to try out my centerpiece set up
    3. Continue the search for the last few BM gifts
    4. Start collecting pics for our guest book
    5. E-mail BMs final shoe and accessory stuff (really just shoe color, I don't care about the kind of shoe or jewelry they wear) and the times of their hair/makeup appts

    i'm sure i'll think of other things before the weekend actually gets here and i'm sure I will not get this all done. Concert on Saturday night (anyone Sugarland fans?) and then finally get a day alone with the FI on Sunday. I don't predict it will be productive for WR things.
    August 2010 August Siggy Challange!

  • I am planning on beginning to assemble my invites!
    Manditchka24, as another Chicago bride, I am always curious to know what vendors others are using.  What caterer and bakery are you meeting with? Sorry to hear about your other caterer going out of business.
  • Wow thats great!!! FI is going to be away on a camping trip this weekend for another friends bachlor party but we are meeting w/the DJ tonight and then just I am meeting with the cake lady on Saturday and working on invites addressing.
  • alexilyse: We did a tasting with J and L Caterers along with their cake person, Maggie Roeder. Then we also did a cake tasting with Bittersweet (which I used to live around the corner from and already knew I LOVED their cake). We booked the caterer, now we have to decide on the cake.

    Sounds like you'll have a busy, yet very fun and exciting weekend!

    This weekend, I hope that we:
    -get the invites mailed on Friday
    -continue working on my centerpieces
    -find hot pink floating candles, and black votive candles
    -oh, and have a great party on Saturday for my 22nd birthday!
