Thanks to all who answered! So glad I’m not alone on my 10/9/10 date. I think it looks rather cool, that date . . . . we ALMOST chose 10/10/10 but it just wouldn’t work for our dreamy venue and we WANTED that venue! haha
So, I guess perhaps I’m okay and “on course” because we just purchased our invitations last night, from Michael’s, actually. They look very pretty and good quality and even have one of our MAIN wedding colors along with cream!! I love them!!! So far!!! haha I mean, I THINK they are going to be regular postage. Which was a big deal for us, to not have to pay an arm and a leg for postage. And the funny part is, we chose the little personalized business cards that we will insert with wedding registry info and our personal website address, in the SAME shade of purple for the font as our INVITATIONS BEFORE we knew what the heck we were doing for invitations!!
Anyway, a bit of a segue there. But all to say, we do plan on stuffing/addressing our invitations this weekend if our engagement photo order comes in on time . . . . and hopefully put them in the mail Saturday night. Guess I’m at the same part of my planning and preparation as many of you!! GREAT!!! I’m encouraged!
Last week/weekend we did this much: went wedding band shopping and found one for each of us.
Chose the photos we’d use for engagement photos to put into invitations.
Chose the business card style/font/color/format for our wedding registry info and website address at the bottom.
Found the supplies I will need to do a trial run of flower arranging (I plan to DIY all our flowers, which should be simple enough or simpler, at least, because there isn’t much flower arranging to do outside of my bouquet, the bridesmaid’s bouquets, bouts, corsages, and maybe a few arranged in vases). YEA
We need to figure out IF we’re having other foods beside cake/drinks, which is likely and WHAT those foods will be
We need to sit down and talk to officiant about what we’re wanting in the ceremony
We need to get a bakery nailed down for our cake and get that all in order
I have to go to my FIRST dress fitting SOON and have my shoes dyed
We need to brainstorm who would be willing and able to help with food/cake/beverages at our wedding and ask them!
Hope to hear more from you all!! Thanks!! And HAPPY WEDDING PREP DATE TWINS!
