I have venue booked, and they are the caterers. I have contacted an officiant and will probably book her. I have a contract for a photographer.
Colors are purple, lavender, apple green and ivory.
I have been buying a few crafty things, it is what I do, and thinking about things like that. Probably going with artificial flowers. Thinking about things like centerpieces, wedding arch. I know I have lots of time, but I kind of wanted to go with what is around at this time of year, so I figured I should look now.
I have a dress, it will arrive on Friday or Saturday, yeah, I bought a pre-owned new with tags dress, so that is very exciting. I feel like I needed my dress to kind of help set the mood/theme. Oh and I have my shoes.
My daughter is my only bridesmaid, we won’t decide on her dress until late in the year. Her Grandma is going to make that. My son will also stand up, he will have a vest and tie of the same material as bridesmaid dress. Possibly Fiance will as well, depending on what he wants.
I have a general idea of guest list, needed to figure out size in order to decide on the venue.
Interestingly I called a fairly local cake shop and was told that we aren’t too early and Saturday tastings are already booked out to August!! I think we will wait a bit and go during the week.
I plan to have dinner at our venue a few times over the next few months to try the different menu options, I would rather do that than have a tasting, too much to decide all at once with a tasting, and I like to see presentation as well. FI may have other ideas on this.
