April 2009 Brides Check In!
Posted 20 February 2009 - 02:31 PM
Our shower is going to be held at a friends house that has nice yard with outside fireplace. They arranged it all themselves (the girls have been so cute and having secret meetings for months and won't tell me anything). I only know it is at there house and they are catering it so no one has to work. I can't wait until next week, I think the shower will kick it off that is all real! i would say, save the cost of a restaurant and ifyou have under 50 ppl do it at someones house if that is an option. It will save on cost and keep it personal.

I've considered a favorite retaurant but they dont have a private room; we would just have a section of the restuarant. Is that OK? I'm so confused; does anyone have any suggestions?
P.S. I've been bad at starting to peak at our registry! That's awesome, the post about already getting every china placesetting!!! None of my china has moved out of the store yet

-finalize music choices for ceremony
-create some playlists on my iPod for the reception
-get my MOH dress/shoes (this is kind of in her court now as she lives 2 provinces away from me...I went out to see her last weekend but I think she will end up ordering one from a bridal shop...hopefully it will get here in time!)
-make makeup trial appt
-make waxing appt
-make my DIY luminaries with my mom for the reception
I made my nail appt, hair trial appt, dentist appt already. My mom is in charge of the pedicure appts before we leave.
All in all, I think we are in good shape (I hope!) - my wedding band arrived and my FI's should be here in the next few weeks.
My shower is at the end of March and I have no clue how many people are coming or who is invited! Ah the joys of being the oblivious bride!
K how's everyone else doing?

While I was in Reno yesterday, I did manage to check a few things off the to-do list We've now got FI's attire, my petti coat, my mother is lending me a diamond/sapphire tennis bracelet for my something borrowed and my something blue, a gift for my mother, flowers to DIY hair flowers, and a lantern from Pottery Barn to be used as a card box for our AHR and subsequently home decor.
I didn't manage to find a legal ceremony/AHR dress... well, I did, but FI would ring my neck if I spent $150 on one. So the search continues...
Left to do before March 29th:
FI's cuff links
Construct Hair Flower(s)
Help MOH find a dress
Finalize ceremony music
Find or make a decorative book for ceremony reading
Polish six pence
Finish final items for OOT bags
Dress fitting/Sash construction
and pickup my wedding rings (yes, plural ) when they arrive
..... Totally do-able, especially with the furlough days the fabulous State of CA has furnished me with at the mere cost of 10% of my salary....

- Order wedding favors---doing this tonight
- Get OOT bags and items
- Finalize list of songs for CD
- Finalize playlist for reception
- Confirm new time change with DJ, adding extra hour
- Pick menu for reception dinner
- Do the reception program
- Print the reception program
- Print the Ceremony program
- Finalize the ceremony program and send it to our priest in Cancun
- Pick the songs for the ceremony
- Finalize plans between the Classical Duet or Classical Trio
- Get fitted for my wedding dress
- Get shoes
- Buy bridal tiara and jewelry
- Pick bridal perfume
- Do a hair style test
- Bridal makeup trial
- Start packing for wedding and honeymoon
- Order cake topper, flower girl basket, ring bearer pillow, and candles.
Good thing is that most of the list could be purchased within 1 day. Some are also handled by our WC in Cancun. Bad news is that that's still a lot of stuff to do and that more money is needed ON TOP of what we already have been paying for. =(
