July 2012 Weddings

checks!! (Meagan don't get mad hahaha!)

So, I don't usually do the bragging check-related posts, but I have been so productive this week I had to share!

Our tasting was last night, and o.m.g. the food was better than most fancy restaurant food. I am nervous that the chef was just trying to impress us at the tasting and that it won't be as good for the real day - but wow, it was by miles the best wedding food I have ever tasted (and trust me, fiance and I counted, and have been to at least 20 weddings in the last 3 years, so I know my wedding food).  Crossing my fingers it is just as good on the real day! 

Oh, and our signature drink is INCREDIBLE. It is a gorgeous true purple colored martini and it is called the "Raj Mahal" (instead of the Taj Mahal) in honor of my fiance. Cute, right?? I think it will be a big hit, it is delicious!  My wedding planner is trying to come up with a fun drink for me too, but so far we don't have anything (Mary Beth is harder to work into a drink name!) 

We just finished another round of edits with our invitation designer, I can't wait to FINALLY get them finished! 

I ordered jewelry for my bridesmaids...I ordered ADORABLE "thank you for being my bridesmaid" cards to include with their gifts....and I ordered the cosmetic bags as part of their gift. 

I booked my hair stylist for me and for all my girls, and my makeup artist for me and for all my girls.  

The save the date went out for my shower, hurray! And I scheduled my hair and makeup trial for the morning of my shower :-D And I bought my shower dress! 

Fiance finally figured out what he will be wearing and what his GM will be wearing, and we finalized our floral contract!!

Now I am trying to figure out some DIY projects, like our seating chart situation and whether we are doing escort cards or place cards, and if we are doing place cards, how we are going to tell everyone what table they are placed at. And My mom wants to try to make our card box, so hurray for crafty moms!

    Congrats on all of your checks :)  Did you mean your shower invites went out?  Or did you really send a save the date for your shower?  I have never heard of that.

    Lol and Meagan only gets mad when it is some random chick who is posting here for only the first time about a check.

    My cousin wanted to make sure people didn't make plans for the Saturday before Mother's Day, so she just sent out an email telling people to keep that afternoon free. I hadn't heard of it either, but I didn't want to tell her what to do, haha! 

    We tasted our 3 entrees: the vegetarian entree (which is an Indian spiced vegetable napoleon with stacked veggies, a tomato based curry, and rice), our chicken dish: mozzerella, spinach, and sundried tomato stuffed chicken with a creamy tomato fondue, and the fish: Tandoori salmon with mint chutney, a mild curry sauce, and a sweet rice cake.  Mmmmmm they were all so good! 

    We also got to taste our wines and our signature drinks which is how we got to picking out the Raj Mahal :)

    YAY! I AM SO HAPPY FOR ALL OF YOUR CHECKS. CAPS LOCK NECESSARY!

    Where did you get the cards for "thank you for being my BM"? I've been looking for cute ones and some of the ones on Etsy are too expensive.

    Re: Sig drink for you -- maybe you could do a play on being a lawyer as the name of the drink and then just do your favorite drink? We may do a "Lawyers in Love" Cocktail (which will actually just be a Bellini Martini, regardless of the name. btw - have you heard that song? It's lame, but fiance played it for me once and I died laughing).

    And PS my MOH sent out a Paperless Post STD for my shower, too.

    "Lawyer in Love" is so cute!! That is better than anything we tossed around last night, so I might have to steal it! I haven't heard the song foe Bellini Martini...it sounds hilarious though!

    I am glad your MOH did the same thing with giving people a heads up for the date :) Mid-March seemed way too early to send invitations for a May 12th shower, so she just wanted people to be able to put it on their calendars even though the invites won't go out till mid-April.

    here are the cards I ordered: <a href="http://www.etsy.com/listing/79687620/thank-you-for-being-my-bridesmaid-card" rel="nofollow">http://www.etsy.com/listing/79687620/thank-you-for-being-my-bridesmaid-card</a> 

    They are only 2.50 each (which is cheaper than most cards I buy at the grocery store these days!) and she is personalizing them for all the roles of people I need to thank (Junior BMs, Matron of Honor, Maid of Honor, and BM).  And the inside is blank, which I like, I hate overly cheesy pre-written sayings.

    YAYA FOR CHECKS!!  Ladies we are getting so close it is insane!

    hahaha the song is called Lawyers in Love by Jackson Browne (I just found on You Tube) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_y3cdCt5oQ4 hahahahaha it's so silly.

    bahahahaha I thought you were talking about a martini song - this makes much more sense. what a funny song!! I am totally stealing that for a drink name, though :)

    and thanks ladies!! everything is really starting to seem real now! 

    And Nati, I am pretty sure it was the best chicken I have ever tasted - much better than the undercooked(creepily pink), unseasoned, rubbery chicken fiance and I had at a wedding two weeks ago!

    You should TOTALLY steal it! I think it's cute - and it works better than Mary Beth. hahahaha

    Sorry - I'm monopolizing this post.

    Just saw this photo on SMP and it made me think of your floral dilemma: http://isa2.stylemepretty.com/wp-content/submissions/uploads/info@yolandemarx.co.za/26757/045.jpg

    Is that kind of the coloring that you originally were thinking? If so, I love it.

    ahhh that is SO pretty!! my initial thought was like that, except with some true purple in it too....like, as traditionally purple as purple could get, but not a BRIGHT purple, if that makes sense. I am still confused with the floral dilemma, btw.

    So did mine! I thought it was a bit strange, but I think they were just getting to be a little late on the invites, so wanted to get the date on ppl's calendars. They followed it with printed invites a few weeks later.

    haha I'm glad I'm lovingly thought of as the checks nazi. What Lady said, I like your checks, I don't like random-girls-who-I've-never-seen-before checks. 

    You got so much done! Just reminds me how far behind I am! ahhh!!! And dang, 20 weddings in 3 years, aren't we popular ;-)

    haha! I didn't mean to make it sound like I was bragging...we both just have lots of different groups of friends due to different life phases (high school, college, places of employment, law school for me, pharmacy school for him, and residency friends for him), and everyone seems to be getting married at the same time as us....hence lots of weddings :) <div>
    </div><div>I just love the joke about your check annoyances - I thought you would probably like mine ;) </div>

    <div>One of the ones we tasted last night they had named the "Blushing Bride" and we liked it, but it didn't seem personalized enough for me...it was really tasty so we may just end up using the drink but changing the name! It was champagne and something else sweet added to it and it was a cute pinkish red color.....</div>

    I love the word "swimmingly" too!!<div>
    </div><div>My productivity mostly stemmed from my coordinator planning our tasting, and also from my Etsy marathons where I look at wedding related things for hours on end and they always seem to result in more than a few purchases. </div><div>
    </div><div>Example: yesterday I bought my fiance a Bacon t-shirt - except it looks like the periodic table (since he is a pharmacy/chemistry nerd) and it has a box for the elements listed in the order of    BaCoN. He is going to love it. </div><div>
    </div><div>so just play on etsy and pinterest and you will be bound to be productive :) </div><div>
    </div><div>PS sorry to be a PW on my own thread but I wanted to respond to lots of people :) </div>
