We just picked up our wedding bands yesterday, and my veil came in the mail. This week I have to set up my hair trial and makeup trial. And seeing as our RSVP deadline is in 3 days and we have less than half of our responses back… I’m sure a big chunk of this week will be spent calling people up to ask whether they’re coming or not!

Tomorrow I’ll start following up on RSVPs. I have 30 people left, and most are my parents’ friends. I’ll leave those to my mom 🙂

We’re doing our pre-wedding moon on Sunday, so we’re packing for the wedding, honeymoon, and leaving on Friday to drive to LA! Then we’re gone for a week!

I’ll try and finish my vows, talk to our officiant to confirm our ceremony, and set up appointments for vendors for the week before the wedding.

AHHH it’s coming too fast!

Hum… this week I want to get the programs tied and completed, tables and positioning in the room figured out, and to practice our first dance a little more.  I’m kinda nervous about having everyone watching!

For this week I have:

– Hair & Makeup Trial

– 2nd wedding dress fitting 

– Our 1st 2hr dance lesson (2 lessons total)

– Paying off balance to the dj/lighting guy & discussing floral floor washes & monograms

– Scour Youtube for an EASY group dance we can teach the bridal party ***anyone know any easy/fun dances? It’s something we’re trying to transition from our 1st dance to a group bridal party dance.

– Buy 2 guestbook & pen sets (Bride’s side & Groom’s side).  It’s mainly for addresses.  We’re hoping the line of 300+ guests won’t be too long when signing in there.  In fact, we’re not having a receiving line b/c that’ll eat away too much time from the cocktail hour.

– Get (3) 45 min sessions in on the elliptical

– Drop off an invitation to our florist (who also happens to be my mom’s friend), so she can get a sense of our wedding style.  Ask her about how the diy hanging candle holders are going.  & finally, see what she says about my fantasy with stringing and hanging (fake) orchids on the pergola for the ceremony.    

– Eye shop for a rehearsal dinner dress/outfit
