hey girls 🙂 well im active duty and stationed in a different state so to help out with the not being able to see eachother/ get all the paper work done before i go to my next base on the other side of the country we got married in december (civily)…. my brother in law didnt want us to get married at the court house so we had it at his church…. i wore a prom dress and he had a nice shirt… got some flowers and stuff so we were set to go.. luckly we even bought our rings extra early so it worked out great….(so the worrying about him not showing up or him running at the last moment are not in my dreams any more lol)
buuuttt we are having a large formal ceremony/reception april 28th.. with 8 BMs, 8 GMs, around 15 couples are sponsoring us (alot of friends who want to help out personally with the wedding as their gift instead of getting a toaster that we probably wont use lol)… and around 150 guest for the dinner and a total some where around 350-400 after dinner is over ..we each have a HUGE FAMILY
so everything that the “sponsors are helping out with are done or at their final stages: the food, cake, dj, invitations, flowers, preacher,photographers, videographer, laso, unity candels, linens/decor, toasting flutes (that are going to be also used as favors ….putting hersey kisses in them…but we think we are just going to have ppl lift up a glass of what ever they are already drinking.. cuz i dont think any women want wine in their purses)…the card box, guest book, and finally the bible have all been taken care of by these wonderful people… pretty much told them what i like if it could be ordered online they just asked what the item# was and ordered it…
the only things left are to print the invites put them in envelopes and mail them off 🙂
get the dress fitted for the second time
diy the centerpieces with all the girls help…. and purchase the little supplies for the ceremony such as flower petals… the ring pillow… baskets for the flower girls… make sure the girls get their fitting for their dresses since those are being custom made… and i havnt decided if i want to buy all the flameless candels yet… but other than that almost everyhting is done… so far the night mares have only been about the dress not being fitted or i totally forget to pick it up before i leave to cali… hair and makeup not getting done cuz of last minute problems with the site like we have to set up everything myself cuz if i dont do it myself then i dont like it (im really really stubborn)…. but i know if shit hits the fan my man is still my husband and he wouldnt care if i walked down the aisle in sweat pants, a messy bun, no makeup, and some flowers i picked from the side of the venue 10 minutes before show time 🙂
this is probably one of the best times in my life that having a huge mexican family and internet is great 😀 cuz i only go home once in a blue moon so the things i cant get done from out of state…. i have over a dozen ppl to call to help…
what has been one of the most stressful parts about the wedding being so close now??? cuz so far its the little things that are adding up and any surprise add ons to our already expensive wedding.
