Congrats on getting those invites out! It’s such a relief, isn’t it?! 

This weekend FH and I went and bought a travel book and Spanish/English phrase book for our honeymoon in Costa Rica. We are so excited about it.

We also had a very serious converstation about fonts for the programs and signs.  🙂

My upcoming things are our RSVP deadline on 7/27, my first dress fitting on 7/29 and my hair trial on 8/3.

Gah! These things I’ve had on the calendar for months are actually happening!

@Sunfire:  See – all the September brides need to live closer – I would trade you printing labels and playing with stupid doilies in a heartbeat to build an arch with 3 pieces of lattice!!!

 

Do you have someone to help or are you doing it all by yourself?

Ep this makes me a little nervous!

I have seating chart, finalizing the music list, finalizing the ceremony wording, ordering the flowers.

Thankfully everything else is pretty much done.

This weekend we (read: I) assembled and mailed the invites, wrote and sent out thank you cards from my bridal shower, finalized our info for the photographer (start times, ceremony details, etc.), and worked on our wedding playlist.

This week I have my first fitting (squeeeee!!!) on Thursday, but still need to find shoes (that’s tomorrow’s project). Once the RSVP’s start rolling in, we’ll start on a seating chart. Also gonna try to finalize flowers this week, pick a honeymoon destination, figure out what to do about limos, set up my hair/nail/makeup trials, and set up a time to meet with the coordinator at our venue to work out details. Also have to look into readings for the ceremony. Sigh. Thought I got a lot done this weekend but the list keeps growing!

Did absolutely nothing wedding related over the weekend, but I think things are on track! I’m at the point where it’s mostly things like accessories, shot list for photos, making payments, picking up small decor components, buying wine. Stuff like that. The main thing I’m doing right now is getting really excited every time the mail comes because RSVPs are coming in!!

Oh, my goodness what I have left to do: pay off the florist, get the marriage license- I think in WA you have to wait longer- like you can’t have it for more than 1 month before the ceremony. I already mailed the invites, my dress is almost finished with alterations, I have a veil, accessories, need to do the florist “trial”, all the gifts are bought, I’m pretty ready actually. . …
