    I actually had a productive week after a whole month off from planning.

    -Decided on suits for the groomsmen and had them order. They are purchasing gray suits instead of renting tuxes, and we found a GREAT deal on for charcoal Joseph Abboud suits that are $500 at Mens Wearhouse, and we got them for $175 each. Woo hoo! So after a lot of back and forth about sizing, they all placed their orders!

    -Ordered several blue ties from online to try to get a match to the bridesmaid dresses. Only one has come so far but I think it is perfect! So I'll return the others if they don't work as well.

    -Made an appointment with Candi Merle to get a veil made.

    -Glued all the invitations to blue cardstock backing with my only local bridesmaid (we were a very efficient assembly line!).

    -Ordered and received a beautiful mini silk hair flower from etsy.
