Haven’t posted in a while, but figured I’d jump in here 🙂

We’ve had most of the big things done for a while. I just booked a bagpiper to play before and after the ceremony as a surprise for FH, he LOVES bagpipes. In the past two weeks we also finalized our priest, and picked out an after party location.

I’m abroad right now for school, so FH has to meet with our priest to get some paper work in motion, and also needs to decide on a rehearsal dinner location for us.

Besides that, we just need to get the tuxes, alterations for my dress, songs for DJ and videographer, and marriage license.

My major job right now will be writing my thesis so I can graduate on time. Oh, and procrastinating by looking at pictures of our resort for the honeymoon 😀 Under 200 days! Family have started booking hotel rooms and such. It’s such an exciting time as the days dwindle down!

futuremrsarias :  Well, we were originally going for a fall wedding, but unofrtunately FIs proposal came late as he had lost his job and that delayed things. Which I was perfectly fine with. We originally thought September 2016, but the proposal came December 2015 and under a year in my ares is VERY hard to book anything, so not wanting to wait until the fall of 2017 because we are just so ready to be married, we decided spring, and since we both love nature, we saw earth day was a Saturday, so we went for it!! We’re making that our theme. Everything we use in decor and florals will be made from recycled materials. I will not kill sooo many beautiful plants to have them last for one night, so we are using ecoflower.com for all of our florals.

tjacob2014 :  Yay, bagpipes! My FI would love that!!! 

Our current task is finding a rehearsal dinner venue and figuring out invitations. I’ve ordered like 30 different samples this week, my mailman is going to hate me lol

MrsSapphire :  I am puking rainbows and real throw up. I can’t believe we’re less than a month!!!!! It feels like I’ve been planning forever. I’ll be grateful when it’s over and I step foot on an airplane.

I didn’t realize how many small things I wasn’t able to do over the course of planning that can only be done now. Can’t wait to hear more from all of you as our day approaches! xoxoxo

kpaone :  I know, right? Like where did all these small projects come from? FI and I were talking about how we can’t wait for our honeymoon so we can finally relax! Although, I eel bad saying that cause it’s all for the wedding and I don’t want to sound like I want to skip over it.

hawkeyebride2be :  Thanks! Well, you picked a good date for your shower wink
