I had my hair and make up trial this morning and they went great. So I booked them this morning!! Yay no more vendors to book
We got a ton done this weekend. We are doing a last minute re-plan. On Friday we met with a photography company but thought they were a bit overpriced so we decided to keep looking if we could. On Saturday we looked at a couple venues and picked one that we're very happy with. We did a tasting from their Hawaiian themed BBQ and loved it. We did have to push our date back a week, but oh well. On Sunday we went to a bridal show. FI didn't want to go but now we're really glad he did. We talked to a couple photographers that we weren't crazy about and started to panic a bit, found one that we really liked but they were booked and they recommended another booth that was there so we went over and they had the date open!!! They will end up being about as much money as the first place we looked into but we like the work so much better, and it was a couple instead of a team of random photographers, and they were having a $500 off special. Then we talked to some DJs and again panicked because I was thinking a DJ would be around $500 but a lot were $1000+. At the last minute we found one that was also having a $500 off special, bringing their price into our range. Yay!Our venue has a specific bakery that they go through but even their cupcakes are $3.50 apiece. We found a bakery there that makes plain ones for $1 or fancy filled ones for $1.30. Since they're cupcakes the venue won't charge a cutting fee so we can use them. We'll have a tiny cake for us on top of a tower with cupcakes underneath. That was my plan all along but I'm really happy to have found a baker that will do it for a much more reasonable price. Otherwise we were just going to get some at a store but I didn't really want to do that.So all the big stuff is out of the way. I will be making and sending out invitations next week over my spring break. We both feel so much better getting all that done! Thank GOD we went to that bridal show!!!
my biggest ones: ordering cookies and reservations for rehearsal dinner... maybe I'll do those tomorrow /bites nails
