October 2012 Weddings

Kicking Off the Wedding Week

What do you ladies have planned for the week of your wedding?

Yesterday was my birthday, and so FI took me and my family out to dinner at The Capital Grille.  It was so freaking delicious!

I'm only working Monday and Tuesday this week, which is going to be great.  Tonight I am doing my makeup trial, and Wednesday I have to finish up my projects and gather everything together and pick up my dress.  Thursday I am bringing everything except the favors to the caterer for them to transport the day of.  On Friday, I have to attach the name cards to the favors, which are also acting as our escort cards, and then we're having a small welcome dinner at my FIL's on Friday night.  

Then, Saturday is WEDDING DAY!!!!!!

Re: Kicking Off the Wedding Week

  • I work today and tomorrow as well. This evening I need to finish our table numbers (I didn't get the frames back from FI until yesterday), and tomorrow I'm getting a spray tan. Then Wednesday getting my nails done and FI and I are going on one last "date night" in our neighborhood before coming back to watch the debates and pack everything up. We leave Thursday!

  • My main goal is to lay by the pool for 4 days.  We really just have a few things that we have to get done.

    -Pick up the rental car on Sunday
    -Marriage license and visit the venue on Tuesday
    -Pick up cakes on Wednesday.

    There is one day that my stepmom and I will go to the spa and do some shopping, but other than that, there isn't much else to do.  All of the craziness is before we leave on Saturday.

  • I'm working today and tomorrow.  Wednesday, I'm going to try to get ahead on grad school work so I don't need to worry about it over the weekend.  Thursday I have the final walk through at the venue and am dropping off all of the supplies.  That night I have mani/pedi appts with the girls.  Friday is the rehearsal.........that's about it.  I have a few odds and ends to get done, but nothing major.
