I’m not getting married on July 9th, but I wanted to say that seeing this date as actually wedding dates is so cool to me because it’s my birthday! 🙂

@MapleBecky:

We didn’t plan to have one, but did recently book one. FI’s grandparents from NS can’t make it to Ontario, and we wanted to show/give them more than photos.

We got a great deal, rather than him editing it and putting it all together I asked if I could and I got $600 off the price, and so we’ll have video for $500, which for a late add to the budget was a bit of a hit, but smaller than what it could have been!

EEK!  Reality check!  I’ve been just playing around here thinking there is still loads of time!  To start working….. 

And on that note, I just ordered the last of what I need for the centrepieces.  One thing down…. only about 5000 things left to do!

@MapleBecky:

I think our guy is just going to be at the venue. I don’t know if I want photo and video watching us get ready -photo is fine, and then really I would rather have video at the venue capturing people arriving, etc. That’s stuff we won’t see and what I’d rather see more of! I suppose for the people we’re getting this for they might prefer to see getting ready, but whatevs I suppose!

 

I really want Spring to be here, then I can head out to the venue more, I have told them I want to help out with any gardening, spring cleaning, farm work, etc (help get me in better shape too!) and they asked if I was interested in riding/exercising a few of their horses which was cool. They show their cattle too, something I used to do, so I will see if they need help with that too!

I gave the owner of the place a 2 job to-do list of things he has to look into for me, but he’s gone to Florida for March Break with his kids so will get back to me.

 

I really want to get a better handle on my DIY stuff. I am working 2 Saturday’s in April and all of May weekends are already booked, so I may try to get going on things this weekend. I want to get favours done. I have the sticker design done (stick design is a totally stolen idea…..lucky in love 7.9.11 and our names!), just need to collect pennies (one of my bm’s is doing that), buy scratch tickets and glassine envelopes. For another project I need to get messy: http://wednesdaycustomdesign.com/blog/messiest-merriest-and-whirliest-diy-balls

I have everything for it, just need to do it. Those will be hanging from the barn rafters and then smaller ones made and bundled to go along barn board plank runner down centre of table (flowers and candles on there too)

I have starting bunching people together for seating plan, with the RSVP’s I have, and those I have yet to hear from, I now know our seating max (180 all in!) and any less is fine!

Fiance has to go pick up his wedding band and the scratch tickets this week, yay him having March Break and me delegating!

I am no longer accepting my Mom’s post dated cheque contribution (she gave us cheques to cahs the 1st of each month leading up to the wedding) so we are trying to figure out how to make up for the sting of not having that money. It’s a big long drama, but she’s removed herself from being involved in the wedding (said “day of tell me where and when, before then I don’t want to hear about it) so Fiance and I talked and decided if she didn’t want to be involved we weren’t going to “take” her money, so that’s been a bit of a stressor!

I’ve basically stopped all outside activities and hobbies since about 3 weeks ago.  Now it’s all wedding projects all the time! Minus my hour of exercise a day (putting a tv in front of the elliptical=time flies!).
