African American Weddings

What is up for the weekend ladies? What are you crossing of your to do list?

So with the wedding being one weekend out, I do not have too much to do at all.

1. Today I have some stuff to return to the mall. I brought some stuff for my bridesmaids, then found some other cute stuff and now I have to take the original gifts back.

2. I need to clean up the house because my mom is coming in town tomorrow and a clean house and car wash is in order. Especially since she will be using my car all day tomorrow.

3. My mom had a dress made for the wedding so we are going for her final fitting and to look for shoes. She wants to go to the nail shop but I would like to wait until Tuesday or Wednesday.. we shall see.

4. I would also like to go visit my florist to make the final payment on our order so when my brother in law picks them up, everything is done. We shall see if I can fit that in tomorrow. They are closed Sunday!

5. On Sunday we are visiting with my niece, the flower girl, for her to try on her dress. She is super tall for a baby girl so we need to make sure it fits.

6. Saturday morning is our last session with our Officiant ( minister friend of mine). let us pray that she will arrive on time tomorrow and to the wedding!!!  LOL

So ladies what are you up to this weekend? Fill us in on your details!

    Well.. my weekend is not so packed;

    1. Hair consultation on saturday afternoon. I'm seriously considering doing a full weave, since that may be the only compromise that will go with the style I was imagining, and still hold up for the honeymoon.

    2. Finish decoratng my card box

    3. start "packing" things for the honeymoon so that we can see what we need/don't need to get.

    4. Work with my mother (via skype) to finalize the layout for the menu cards and the programs.

    5. Order all the materials needed for the reception centerpieces (hopefully I can do that this weekend, cause I can't wait any longer... the rush fees are going to be nuts!)

    6. Have my mom drop off the cake topper and color swatch to my baker.

    Thats about it... I mean other than the usual food shopping, and house cleaning.. lol Hope you get everything done that you need to have finished!

    Tonight we're helping out with a trivia night at church for a couple hours then FI wants to go out after.

    Tomorrow: small group, marriage counseling, happy hour for a friend/co worker and my best gf's bday dinner.

    Sunday: Addressing envelopes. Plan to mail out the invites next Friday.

    *Hopefully sometime this weekend I order my thank you notes, lingerie shower invites and business cards I made for a gf. The order has been cued at VP but I keep forgetting to call. I also need to pick up belly bands for my invitations. Michael's has them super cheap ($5.99 for a set of 20).

    Girl I am lost as well.  My hair is on the longer side and on a normal day I just wear it flat ironed straight and I'm not sure what to do with it on the special day.
