  • Wedding: June 2014

 

CatieMack:  I haven’t sent out the majority of the invites either, jus the international ones.  It is a bit too early still for the locals.  I was planning on sending them the last week in April.  So I think you are fine.  6-8 weeks before the date is the norm.

But, I still need a cake.  Problem is I don’t care about all that much.  Much more excited for the entire dessert bar.  I think I just need to head over to the grocery store and order one.  

The rehearsal/welcome dinner is my stressor.  We still have not found a place that we like.  It’s very annoying.

CatieMack:  We have 40+ for the dinner because I want to invite all the people that traveled out of country to the dinner. That only seems right considering how far they have come.  

We wanted a very casual pizza/microbrew party, but nearly all the places in town do not take reservations for Fridays (WTF???) or if they do have a private room for reserve, the open bar costs are prohibitive for what we are trying to do.

We have a few more to check out, but honestly I just told my FI to handle it –and he is.  But soon, I will need to create an invite, so time is a ticking.

I can’t even handle the fact that our wedding is 2 MONTHS FROM TODAY. I’m getting really excited and not as stressed as I thought I would be. Big things are out of the way, but there are things we’re behind on because out wedding is OOT and there are some things we have to do in person. But we’re getting there!

CatieMack:  We are doing a BBQ as well at my future mother in laws backyard. We are decorating it very southern with mason jars, lights, burlap and lace. I am very excited for it!!

Eeeee! I’m seriously so stressed out…we have most things out of the way but we have some big things left to do, like figure out a hairdresser for me, flowers and music…and we have to buy a car! Yes, a car. Our wedding is in another state and we’re driving there and we still need to buy a newer car…we have the money for it but just having found the perfect car (looking for something specific).

Got flowers and hair done last weekend; hoping to look for a tailor for dress neckline (straight-sweetheart) change tonight if I get a chance, and paid photographer yesterday. 

52 days to go for me!

CatieMack:  We aren’t having one, but it really came down to budget on that one. I would love to have a videographer, but we can’t afford it right now. We have a great photographer so I am happy about that, and I told my MOH she HAS to record our first dance. We have worked hard on it 😉 lol

CatieMack:  Lol yeah, we’re just at the point where we need a new car and renting one just for the trip to our wedding (it’s about 40 hours driving) would be ridiculously expensive so we’re just gonna go for it with the new car. We’re looking for a Dodge Journey with all wheel drive and I’ve found a few nice ones but I was hoping one with a moonroof would suddenly appear, lol.

CatieMack:   I haven’t had the cake testing yet, but the venue is making the cake and I know FI wants lemon.   My dress is in for alterations,  I am trying to keep my hand out of the candy jar LOL and we have half our RSVPs back. 

We are having a terrible time trying to coordinate transportation.  I need a cat herder.  

We’re not doing a videographer.  I know we won’t sit and watch it.  We both love photographs so we put a huge priority on the choice of our photographers.

Our wedding is June 21st and I’m sending out our invites on Thursday! We are having a videographer. A friend had one and her video was amazing and is a nice thing to have since you miss so many things at your own wedding. 🙂
