    Yes my weekend was productive. I signed the contract with the DJ, shopped for accessories. Set appointments for next weekend for BMs to try on dresses and order them. I am satified!

    The weekend was fairly productive. I didn't do ANYTHING for school or work. Which is really unfortunate for me... But I did pick up my gown, do the groom's preview for FI tuxes, he got most of the GM and my dad sized and deposit paid for tuxes.

    Today is a snow day for us so I will get more done as I sit trapped in the house today!

    I had a great weekend! I went to a bachelorette party that I was kind of nervous about but I am so glad that I went. We had a ball.

    I spent time with FI and typed his guestlist into an excel spreadsheet vs the many pieces of paper he had the addresses on.

    The only thing I did this weekend is to get serious about planning this wedding. 4/21/12 is getting closer and closer.

    I met with my flower lady and my day of coordinator. My mother actually had the opportunity to go along and my FI was in town. It was perfect.

    We all had a pre-marital counseling session this weekend. It was really good.

    I was able to meet with our wedding decorator and finalized the centepieces, linens, and chair covers for the reception.  I also finally picked out my flowers for my bouquet and gave that info to FMIL because her friend is making our bouquets, bouts, and corsages.

    I ordered a cake topper from Crafty Eddy and also ordered crystals from ebay to strass it myself.  The wood cake topper from Crafty Eddy was only $14, which included shipping, and I ordered 1,440 hotfix crystals for only 10.99, which had free shipping.  Then I went to Michael's and got the hotfix tool to apply the crystals and used my 40% off coupon, so I only paid $12 for it.  Overall, I'm paying much less than I would have if I had bought a cake topper that was already adorned with crystals.  I plan to do other items like a Mr. & Mrs. sign from Crafty Eddy down the road.  I'll post pics when I'm done!

    I got a ceremony cite booked (yay, was really stressed over that), decided on how I am going to do and decorate my program basket, bathroom baskets and card box. Got FI to work on his guestlist (hallelujah!!!!), and started getting all my info organized in one place. And started designing our monogram.

    i went to the Bridal Extravaganza with my fiance, mom, aunt and my maid of got the wheels turning in my brain for a lot of stuff. my poor baby was bored out his  i am currently debating on whether i want to do the bouquets and boutonnieres myself, or pay someone to make them. i'm creative, but not really patient.. if i DO decide to hire a florist to make everything, i'll tell them exactly what flowers i want; THAT, i DO know for sure. we went through a few catalogs and picked out some things we liked for our wedding registry, and i will sign up for all that online, once we finalize everything...which reminds me..i need to reserve a date to attend the Crate & Barrel wedding registry event. :) AND, i'm having second thoughts on the kind of wedding cake we picked..(that was one of the first things we did when we got engaged.) aaaahhhh!!!!! i did nothing non-wedding related..Sunday was chock full of weddingness.
