Nothing.  We suck.  LOL.  Went to dinner and saw Avatar instead.  I thought about wedding stuff a lot, but unfortunately, this is one of those instances where the thought does NOT count.

We finished designing our invites (typing up everything and figuring out spacing). Fiance is going to print them today, and then I just have to cut and paste them into the invites I’ve already put together! I also just officially booked our officiant. Whew!

Our weekend was yesterday and today instead of the typical Sat/Sun. So we did some invite work, worked on our favour boxes, searched for a good online site that’ll let us upload our photos easily and picked up FH’s ring. We also had some last minute invites from my dad so we were busy getting their addresses. Now FH has gone to pick up the card that we ordered so we can crack on making our overseas invites that I ruined last week. Phew!

Lots of things!  We found out our friend has agreed to be our officiant!  We also tried out a bakery (mmmmm flavor tastings) but were sticker shocked at their prices.  We’ll keep looking (hello more tastings?).  Also, we signed our florist’s contract!

Successful weekend here!  We met with our new (new to our church and new to us) pastor and he is AMAZING!!!  super real and great great guy.  In fact we talked for an hour and a half about not just the wedding but church stuff and becoming more active in our church, what a great feeling.

Also met with my Maid/Matron of Honor.  We discussed everything from showers to parties to wedding DOC and how to set up tables and aisle decor, and music ideas.

I also have set up a playlist on my ipod for our ceremony music so when its all set and we added and deleted everything i can just burn it on a cd and take it to the church.  Finally feel like some things are coming together.

Hmmm, I found my shoes online.  I ordered my first Bridesmaid or Best Man gift, and decided that if my venue doesn’t offer a DOC, I’m probably going to hire one.

I did a bunch of diy…still more to do.

I started scouting officiants and have narrowed it down to 2!

I was and am still searching for cute short sleeved hoodies that I can personalize for my girls to wear the day of as we go about the day on 06/19

I still feel like I have so much to do. Whew! Only a little over 5 months left. Geesh!

Got the sample for my save the date and decided that’s the one we’re going with. Pretty much finalized the guest list. Found an alternate Bridesmaid or Best Man dress that is a little cheaper than the one we were looking at before.

Next step: addresses.

i started picking ceremony songs, decided on food, figured out who we want to officiate (now we just have to ask him!)  and got my e-ring!!

@rosie – the cheapest places in town i found were red lion and holiday inn (both $129 for 10 rooms) but i only called the bigger places becuase my family is pretty picky about where they stay!!
