We bought the Flower Girl dress, our card box and ordered our cake topper!  This week I need to get in touch with my wedding planner for some questions I have and call my seamstress about my second fitting.  We are still receiving RSVPs until the end of the month.  We were also looking at guest book ideas but haven’t found any we like yet.  🙂

@caits615:  OOoo last week we…

  • Did our 60 day walk through with the venue.
  • Payed for our engagement session.
  • Paid for venue in total.
  • I found a bra for my dress
  • I exchanged my veil.
  • Found a dress for the engagement session
  • Met with the makeup artist
  • Bought the gifts for my bridesmaids
  • Got contact lenses (for the first time ever)

Hm. I know I did way more than that. This week we need to meet with the baker, send my ring to get resized, I need to start working out… and make a list of everything else that needs to be done.

I addressed all envelopes, and tied all the ribbons on our pocketfolds.  Shower this weekend!  We took engagement pics last Friday.  I ordered his ring tonight.

This week, I must decide on which DIYs I’m going to start or give up on and make a final decision on rentals and what else to get from the florist.  I also will make a final decision on jewelry and a sash and place the order.

booked the photog today and got our marriage license.

my dress is making it’s way through UPS and will be here next week.  I ordered it in November!  damn you allure and your making me wait!

found a suit for Fiance today, buying instead of renting because renting makes me too nervous.

last week helped address and send out the shower invites.

started the program design.

started the music playlists.

tons more to do but I have a handle on it i feel!

Is it just me or is everyone getting their licenses really early? In OK we only have a 10 day window from getting it ’til the wedding. 30 days total to get it back, but only 10 to use it.

@itsashleyday:  I live in Washington, and here we have a 60 day window that the license is valid during, and 30 days after to turn it in. So I guess there can be a really big difference from state to state!
