- Wedding: February 2015 - Chapel on Base
Date twins in a little over 6 months we will be married. How is your planning coming along? Are you doing any DIY? If so, how are you having fun or getting frustrated. This is my fourth date change and I have to say I am so super excited. I had lost my excitement but it is coming back full force.
I have everything booked. I did end up with a new DJ last night. My former DJ does every event sponsored by our Convention Center. We had a date change and unfortunately he will be doing the Taco Festival on our wedding day. Our guests should be able to attend the festial before the wedding. Anyways, my old DJ did set me up with another DJ that he feels will meet my needs and he does uplighting. I know a lot of people don’t like uplighting but I do and my Love really liked it when I showed him what it was. We are getting 16 uplights in a color of our choice for $350.00. I think that is pretty darn cheap. 🙂
I need to finalize our menu – no rush until we are ready to send out our invitations. As of right now we are only serving chicken.
In the next week or so we will be doing our second engagement photoshoot. My photographer will have our pictures back to us within a week then I will do the STDs. I will aslo do our invitations. I have already have them done on the computer just need to print. Which I won’t do until its time to send them out.
I need to start painting a lot of our decor. I need to finish our cake stand. Everything will be done by myself or my Love.
We are using fake flowers for everything. Centerpieces are finalized.
I am working on a brooch bouquet for myself and smaller ones for my bridal party.
We have rented the entire American Legion for our wedding. The South Room will be for our ceremony and happy hour. The North Room will be for the reception. We will have security in place to keep them out of the North Room. I want the WOW factor.
I do not have linens in place yet. The Legion rents them for $3.00. I will more than likely make our overlays.
I will be going to look at fabric later today to see if I want to have my dress made. I already purchased a dress but it will be too big by April – I had weight loss surgery.
I can’t think of anything major that I need to do asap.
