I emailed my minister to start discussing the details of the ceremony and looked a bit at invitations. And bought some honeymoon lingerie!

Invitations are not as straightforward as I thought! We haven’t found anything exactly right yet.

Nothing!  It was not a productive weekend and I’m bummed.  We both kinda sucked this weekend.  I did find out that the invitations will be $150 more than we planned on spending.  I was supposed to pick up my ceremony dress but we ran out of time.  And I was supposed to exchange my earrings (a crystal fell out, not cool) but we ran out of enegry.  Oops.  But this coming weekend we’re getting A LOT done!  We have our menu selection, I have got to get my veil (!), I’m picking out invitations that aren’t $600, I don’t care if I have to get out the crayola’s.  And, we’re going dress shopping for my Mommy.  All in 3 days… yikes!

Yesterday was our RSVP deadlines, so I figured out how many Out of Town bags we’ll need (37!) and when I go back before the wedding, we’ll start putting them together. We also booked the hotel we’ll stay at on the last night of our honeymoon at the airport…yay Hotwire.com! The wedding is coming SO SOON! EEEK!

@Lees4308- that’s what we did this weekend too!  We went to a comedy club and spent money we totally could of used for the invitations.  Lol, we’re silly.  But we’ve limited the amount of times we go out and spend money so every once in awhile its ok!  Hope the mexican food was good πŸ™‚

I thought we would be BURSTING at the seams (250 max) but we ended up inviting 290 and 209 is our RSVP count. That doesn’t mean that more won’t dwindle in, but we told the caterer 200 because a)reception is short b) we know she’ll make extra and c) since it’s light appetizers it’s ok if we run out of some things.

Mr. Library and I got all of our groomspeople together, got everyone fitted for tuxes (including the dads), got the groomswoman set with a dress idea and her sash to match the guys’ ties, had a great dinner with all of them so they could bond, got 80 votives for the reception, looked into a videographer, and signed up for a new set of engagement pictures!  Whew!

This weekend was veyr productive for us – we addressed half of our wedding invitations and purchased our wedding bands (way under budget I might add, yay!)

Went to a bridal show, got some great floral ideas and registered for tuxedos so we could get the special. I wanted to book a dj too, but they only had one company there, and we’ve heard terrible things, so we don’t want to use them. The search continues. πŸ˜›

Oh, and one more little thing–I picked up my wedding dress. πŸ˜€ Hurray!
