Latest Checks!

I thought it would be good to hear what everyone has achieved recently with wedding plans! My wedding is coming along so quickly - after a 21-month engagement I am so ready to just do it already!

So, my recent checks are:

* Wedding Cake -- I ordered KMills' cake from LV Cake Designs, but it will be in our colours (cream, with accents of green, orange and pink)




*  I am still extremely undecided on how to wear my hair. I have a birdcage veil, but I am pretty sure I don't want to wear that anymore. I just ordered this headpiece, made out of vintage brooches:



* I wanted M&Ms in our colours in our limo, however after speaking to the limo company, they wanted to charge me a $5,000 deposit in case we made a mess with the chocolate! Dear God. So, no M&Ms for us now.

* We booked Cirque du Soleil tickets to see 'O' the night after we get married. I thought it would be nice to have a night together, as for the following 5 days will be spent in L.A with our families. Just need to decide on a special restaurant to eat at beforehand now!

* We got our RSVPs back and pretty much everyone has booked their flights and hotels now. We have 28 guests coming with us, which is a perfect number.

I am so excited! Laughing What have you ticked off your to-do list recently?

    @Gribbles - Congrats on the checks!  Can I ask how many people you invited?  We're inviting about 50 people, and we'll be engaged for 24 months.  I'm assuming because of the amount of time, we'd probably have a higher attendance... ??

    I still have 18 months to go, but...:

    *picked caterer (Masterpiece)
    *purchased BM dress
    *found adorable headpiece on etsy
    *picked invites

    @Gribbles - Love your new hair piece!  I'm a hair freak myself, and plan to get my hair done both ways I'm thinking (my BM is my stylist), then take pictures of it - see how they look in pictures, then decide.  Just a thought.

    -Picked out new BM dresses that is flattering on everyone:



    -Found flowers for my reception shoes, that I hot glued onto them the other day:



    -Bought toasting flutes for half the price on Ebay (no longer doing the caricature glasses)




    -Most importantly heard back from our ceremony vendor on our deposit we'd lose, less then I thought!  And probably found a new venue (COF).

    Gribbles, if you're looking for a special dinner before the show, you should check out Le Cirque or Circo; both are in the Bellagio so they'd be convenient. If you booked early enough maybe you could get a table by the window to watch the fountains. ETA: No recent checks, going back to Vegas next month to finalize some stuff with our florist, get the cake figured out, have another dress fitting and do my boudoir shoot.

    All our guests are travelling from the UK and Australia, so I sent Save the Dates out 18 months in advance so people could save and plan their holidays around us! I think it has definitely worked in our favour, we did not expect that many people but we are so happy about it! We sent 50 invitations out, so approx 100 invited I would say.

    @Direy - I have just been looking at all the Bellagio restaurants! I like the look of Olives, and they have a fountain terrace too. I am thinking definitely somewhere at the Wynn/Encore where we are staying, or Bellagio. Our tickets are for the 10pm showing so we should have plenty of time!

    Jealous of your visit to Vegas - I would give anything for just one day there...!

    You've accomplished great checks.  I have just started to get excited by this whole planning process.
    - hired Deacon Tyler as my photographer
    - found my shoes
    - booked my suite for the night before the wedding
    - received invitations (in process of assembly)

    So much more to do, but I'm on it.

    Though I haven't paid the deposit yet, we are booking The Platinum Hotel for our reception- Kil@Wat and the pool deck! We had a great conversation with Nicole, and while it is more than we were planning to spend, the value is unbeatable!

    We also have  our photographer, ceremony, and DJ!
