This morning my mom and I met with the wedding coordinator to finalize the details for decorating our reception room. It was awesome. I showed her pictures of what I liked for centerpieces and she immediately understood my vision and had great ideas. I said I wanted limes and so she is going to do tons of limes in vases with floating candles. She is getting hydrangeas and limes from a wholesaler so we will save tons of money. I am so relieved that all I have to do is put all my wedding crap in a plastic bin and give it to her the week before the wedding and everything is taken care of. Best $650 ever spent.
We also found BM gifts. We scored some adorable/cheap compacts at Forever 21 and "Kiss Me" lip gloss from Philosophy. "Kiss Me" is mine and FI's song, so it was perfect lip gloss... ok you can all gag now. The philosophy lady was like "I love weddngs" so she went to their stock room and hooked us up with some awesome perfume and lotion sample packs to throw in their gift baskets. (Macy's in Schaumburg for you Chicago ladies)
My mom found awesome shoes for the RD and wedding, too. I just need to find a RD dress and a RD shirt for FI.
The only downside is that the hotel for our hotel block is awful. They told us today that they can't guarantee the rooms that people have already reserved and confirmed... so that did not go over well. My dad has graciously volunteered to be an ahole with the hotel, so knottie vibes to him on that one. If I have to fight with the hotel, I don't care, but when my guests check in, I want everything to be perfect.
How is everyone elses' productivity going this weekend?
Married on 8/7/10
