@MrsBee2B:  That shawl is beautiful!!! I love it! And I have a new appreciation for the internet lol, I never used pinterest before but now I’ve gone and made my very pathethic account explode. 

@Laurenplusalex:  That’s so awesome! I think going dress shopping is going to be one of the things I look forward to the most – it must be so exciting to pick yours up!

I finished designing my invitation suite! Which is a huge relief because I’ve been working on it for.ev.er. and its finally perfect! I’ve also booked my hair and makeup services for me and the girls! Also a huge relief because I’m eternally hopeless when it comes to beauty services and it’s been driving me up a wall to find good people that I could afford!

@MrsBee2B:  Me too! I’m super plus sized so I was very concerned with feeling comfortable in front of someone.

-Finalized my invitation suite customizations
-Finalized guest list (WOOOHOOOOOOO)
-E-mailed/in-process of setting up meetings with possible rehearsal/welcome dinner locations, bridesmaids brunch (and the boys’ equivalent), and day-after brunch

It has been a busy week for wedding planning, found out I’m moving to California from Boston and I need to really get on the ball with wedding planning so I don’t have to fly back and forth all the time!
