    We're still trying to nail down our officiant, which has me REALLY nervous, because we're getting close to the point where the paperwork might not go through in time.  I still have invitations to finish, flowers to finish, and we have to settle on where we're getting food for the meet-n-greet, rehearsal lunch, and where we're going for the morning after brunch...

    Excuse me, I have to go lie down now.
    This is a neglected planning bio.
    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    Our invites arrived this week (yay!).  We are printing up the envelopes this weekend, and I will mail them out next week.  Our wedding is April 16th.

    I have a lot of things to do!  I need to decide on a cake, reception centerpieces, bouquets.  I also need to decide if we are going to do a photobooth. 

    We already have feeback of people booking, which is nice.

    Hi April Brides!! It's getting so close I think I'm about to have a panic attack...

    Things we have to do:
    Meet and greet place has to be finalized so we can finish the invitations, assmble them and send them out.

    Transportation for the wedding party/parents/grandparents to and from the hotel to Caesars.  i just can't bring myself to to spend $300.

    I have to finish the guest book. 

    Print off maps and brochures for the OOT bags.  Buy some other gifts for the bags.

    Music for the ceremony/reception has to be decided on and put together.

    We have to buy the groom/grooms men shirts/ties.  

    My mom and Grandma want me to help them find their dresses.

    Start my dress alterations find the rest of my look.

    Oh my I need to stop typing this is scaring me...

    We still need to figure out the guestbook as well.  Homemade photobooth or be lazy and do something more traditional.
    The rest of the stuff, like food for the meet and greet and floral arrangements for the suites I am just going to do in Vegas.  Yay for Costco and Sams Club.

    We finally got a commitment out of a friend to officiate last night.  YAY!  Now the biggest obstacle is brunch.  I need to start calling the hotels and figuring out where we're going.
