    6 months until the big day ladies!

    Where are you at with planning?

    We mailed out our STDs (FINALLY!!) a couple weeks ago. In two weeks I have my hair and makeup trial so I can finalize a contract with my salon. My mom is also going in for a hair trial because her face is ridiculously narrow and it's hard for her to get up-dos or have it styled.

    At the end of May my BM's and I are going to go shopping for their dresses. And at the end of June my FI and I are taking a trip to visit his family for the 4th of July. While we are there I'll take his sister (one of my out of town BM's) and her daughter (our FG) shopping for a BM dress and FG dress.

    Otherwise I don't have anything to do right now. My dress should arrive in July so I'll start the alterations process. We'll mail our invitations near the end of August. I've had a consult on the favors I want to order but we don't need to order them until around the time I send out invites. I won't have my shower until August either. So yay for a summer of freedom and nearly zero WR related stuff!



  • I feel like wedding planning has been going very steady so far! In two weeks, we will be flying up to Maryland for our venue food tasting/finalizing our menu, Food and Beverage meeting, cake tasting, and floral. I'm also hoping to find a place for alterations while I am up there (for only 2 days!) so I can start the process since my visiting is limited - got to save up PTO time at work for the week and honeymoon! 

    We recently went to Men's Wearhouse and planned and set up the tuxes for all of the gentlemen in the wedding party. 3 of the 4 bridesmaids in my party have gotten their dresses so we are going pretty well on that end! I am still working on getting the small tedious parts of our favors done (tying small bows), which is proving to take a while but I am trying to get as much done now as possible! We just bought our personalized toasting flutes and serving sets, and trying to get as much purchased for the reception now. I also just got my shoes for my dress which took too much stressing than needed. I also bought a cute pair of cheap flats (from Charlotte Russe!) to wear at my reception because there is no way I will be wearing heels! I am tolerant of them for only a small amount of time. 

    Once we have our menu finalized, we will be able to finish putting together our invitations (we have everything else invitation-wise ordered and received), meaning the menu portion of our RSVP. So far so good! Things are coming along, but I am finding myself beginning to stress over little things - can only imagine when it gets closer! Ah!
  • It's so nice to see so many date twins!

    My summer is pretty crazy with work, so we are starting to knock out the details now. Our save-the-dates went out in February (early, because it's a semi-destination wedding), we have all vendors secured, and are starting to work through the ceremony and decor. 

    Happy planning, everyone!

    Yes, a little bit! Lol. For me it probably has something to do with the fact that I am getting off my anxiety medication now (been on it for 10 years) so I can start TTC right away. Planning a wedding while getting off anxiety medication is making my stomach a little jumpy!!
  • Me...marrying the love of my life 10/18/2014!
  • Yay! 25 MORE DAYS!

    Holy goodness 12 days. I was just talking to Fi about getting my nails done and I was asking "do you think I have time to get them done Thursday next week? Oh crap...NEXT WEEK!" (Well, it's Sunday of the week after that technically, but close enough!)

    Tomorrow is 2 weeks to the day!!!! Holy crap...it's honestly completely unreal to me right now. Today I made final payments to our ceremony musicians and the second payment to our caterer. Goodbye money!!!
