We’re getting so close! 

What do you have to do before May?

Well, before our wedding date we have to plan the ceremony, finalize the music, book a hotel the night of the wedding, figure out honeymoon rental car, get a pet sitter, pick a cake design, finalize flowers, meet with venue and caterer to finalize everything, send final payments, do programs, seating charts and escort cards, make a donation for our favors and order ketubah.  We’re sending out invitations tonight.

What are you wearing on your wedding day apart from your wedding gown?

Finger-tip length mantilla veil for ceremony, crystal ribbon headband for reception, and probably only small pearl drop earrings and silver bracelet.. but I’m going to have to try it on with the dress to see if I’ll need jewelry that “pops” more.

Did you purchase your wedding bands?

Yes, but FH’s hasn’t come in yet.  We still have to get them engraved.

Did you send your invites? If no, when will you send? If yes, have you received any replies?

We’re sending out tonight, so they should go in the mail tomorrow.

Are you planning to change your name after getting married?

Yes, and I can’t wait.  My name is always spelled incorrectly.  I’d say 9 out of 10 people spell it wrong and 5 out of 10 people still spell it wrong even when I spell it out for them.

What do you have to do before May?

We have to meet with our pastor a few more times, finish designing our ceremony, my dress is being altered, but might need another appointment for that, do the seating chart/cork escort cards, buy candles for our centerpieces, meet with the venue next week, etc.  I’m sure I’m forgetting things, there seems like a lot to do before then!

What are you wearing on your wedding day apart from your wedding gown?

My 4″ blue heels =D, my blinged out veil, which I love probably more than the dress, haha, and I’m still in the market for some chandelier-type earrings.

Did you purchase your wedding bands?

Yep, got em as eachother’s Christmas gifts.  Still need to have them sized, but will do that in May along with re-dip my white gold e-ring.

Did you send your invites? If no, when will you send? If yes, have you received any replies?

Sent them on March 26, so far have 30 yes’ and 8 no’s.  Can’t wait to get more back soon.

Are you planning to change your name after getting married?

Yes, even though I love my last name! It’s going to be a hard change, but I’ve always planned to change my name when I get married.  I need to start making a list of all the places I need to change documents at, that’s not going to be fun.
