Woo!Everything is almost done!  I have to make a candy buffet sign, wedding programs, paint my centerpieces, and buy wedding night lingerie.  Soon, I will have my hair and makeup trial.  I am making bags full of stuff for my bridesmaids, so there are food goods I want to buy them, and pashminas.  That’s it!

  • Centerpieces are complete thanks to my father who made them, the table numbers have been made as well as several cupcake stands
  • one flower girl dress is finished
  • Menu has been picked out
  • Save the dates were mailed in December
  • Invitations and RSVP’s will be mailed this week.
  • reservations at the hair dresser have been made

  • cake and sweets bar has been ordered
  • photographer has been finalized and day of planned out
  • chair rentals have been made for the outdoor ceremony
