What sorts of wedding-related things are you doing this weekend?
My mom is driving down from Ohio right now and should get here in a couple hours. She’s bringing her wedding dress and accessories and some of my grandmother’s stuff to look through. Tonight, I have my first dress appointment, and she’s going to come with me! I’m excited. I’ve got four reception venue tours, one more dress appointment, a photographer interview, and a bridal expo all going on after that. We’re going to go to my FI’s church on Sunday, too, to see where we’re getting married (assuming the church ever responds to my email/phone call…). Oh, and my family is going to have dinner with his – first time they’ll have seen each other in about seven years. It’s going to be a super busy weekend.
What about you?

I’m getting my dress re-fitted, trying to figure out how to print my signage, getting his tux fitted and calling in the order for the groomsmen tuxes.

@GreenEyedMoon: That is a BUSY weekend. Just a heads up — we did 3 venues in one day and by the third one we were so exhausted, we were barely paying attention to what the poor woman was saying. We were surpised at how draining it was. Stop for coffee breaks in between to keep yourself perked up! 🙂
We’re visiting the in-laws this weekend and having some budget chats. Should be… fun??

I’m going to fight and finish my guest list. Finalize table decorations and maybe work on my fingerprint tree. My card box is half-way done. I guess its more than I thought I had to do.

@TinyTina: Thanks for the tip! I just don’t know when I’m going to be able to see my mom again, so I felt like I needed to fit as much planning into one weekend as I possibly could. We’ll find out soon if that was a mistake…
@Karina27: Oooh, I’ll bet that’s exciting!

@GreenEyedMoon: Yea I totally get it! Fiance and I are planning long distance so when we are in Albany for the weekend we try to smoosh as much wedding planning in 2 days as we can. I will be happy when the vendors are all booked and we won’t have to run around so much!

@MsBrewer: Good luck! Also, I’m now craving cake. Mmm…
@TinyTina: I don’t know how I’d plan long distance. It’s one thing to have all my family somewhere else, but you ladies who plan from somewhere else are a marvel to me.
