September 2012 Weddings

Weekly Checks (ooops)

Hey ladies! I was so exhausted yesterday that even though I was on our facebook page, I completely forgot about weekly checks! I'll just put this up now, so we can keep up with each other!

-FI and I went to the cake tasting on Saturday afternoon. Cake is all picked out- 3 tiers, round, white with purple orchids, chocolate chip and chocolate marble layers. Woot.
-Went to AC moores/home depot after this and picked up everything I need to make a card box. Bought: round box, plum spray paint, spray glue, glitter, letters that spell "cards", and sparkly ribbon. 
-Worked on the wording for the invites (need to order asap!)

-Finalize wording and order the invites! This really needs to get done asap.
-email my officant back after I look though all the stuff that she gave me

That's really it. I need to make ordering the invites my priority this week.

    Last week: 
    - Booked and went to hair trial, wasn't completely in love, but I think by the end of the appointment she 'got it' and now is on board with what I'm envisioning for hair.
    - Went for cake tasting and decided on flavors which are out of this world good.  We have the leftovers in our fridge.  Drooling just thinking about it.  Design seems to be under control, too.  Yay!
    - Met with a videographer (twice!) to see what ideas he had for our venue and to see some of his previous work.
    - Visited the site we rented for our wedding party + a few others helping with the wedding - an awesome old summer home built in the 1920s.  We'll be staying there leading up to the wedding, but have a hotel booked in town for the wedding night.
    - Did a second mock-up of centerpieces, which I like much more than the first.
    - My favorite - FI and I absconded with 95 guides to the town where our wedding will be held, which we found at a rest stop on the MI/IN border.  I had been planning to attempt to order some from the CVB for OOT bags, but this was much easier.  FI was way more open to the idea than I anticipated, and he grabbed about 70 to my 25.  <3

    This week:
    -Decide on videography package and send deposit
    -Send deposit for cake
    -Do research on makeup, perhaps test it out at a wedding this weekend if I get my ish together in time.
    -Finish addressing STDs and send out (only co-workers left... we're behind, I know)
    -ORDER INVITES - we have these picked out, but keep dragging our feet on placing the actual order.  
    -Start looking for a headband
    -Look up bag options for OOT bags
