EEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Only 143 days for me!! 12/07/12!
Soooo How's everyone's planning going?
I am really feeling Ready!
I did STD's 1 year prior, and my people booked within 3 months of that to get into the group rate, and thank god they did because the rates if they waited and were booking now are about $600 more per person.
I sent Invitations to the confirmed guests, and "maybe's" in May, and they were Passports - I ordered them from Got the Invite, they turned out AMAZING, way better than I could have done, and I got so many comments on them!
I recieved my dress which I had ordered in December - it's amazing, but tight so now I'm dieting until Sept when I have to go for alterations hoping it will be lose and then they can take it in to fit perfectly. I've gotta start alterations in September to have them done in time for December (or so the seamstress told me).
We bought the Grooms+men's outfits at Le Chateau - grey dress pants and white shirts with purple Chuck Taylors for the boys, and add a vest and green chuck taylors for Josh my groom. He just needs a tie
Bridesmaids dresses were bought at Davids Bridal, ordered and arrive already.
I've ordered a brooch bouquet which will ship to me in Sept. - nicolasacicero on etsy
I've ordered my cake topper which will be ready in Aug - mudcards on etsy
I bought some rafia fans and am wrapping them with purple ribbon and glueing mini seashells or starfish to them for the chairs during the ceremony. They are really Cute! I ordere all that from orientaltrading.com but the shipping was really expensive so I'm not ordering from them again
I bought purple chair sashes because the resort only has white off ebay.
...so what's left for me?
I need to do up some welcome letters or little booklets, I am going to make Love Phrases on nice little cardstock to put on the tables during our dinner.
Programs (I can't decide if I'm gonna do this or not) I kinda don't think it's needed for the wedding because it's so small.
I need to make my guestbook which is a chalkboard and camera where people write their message to us in chalk, then have their photo taken with the chalkboard so we can turn that into our guestbook.
I need to make the Banner that my two nephew's are going to carry down the Aisle that says Here Comes the Bride (I saw a pic of this and it was so cute I fell in love with it)
I need to get Josh's RING OMG I can't believe I almost forgot about this
I need to get my Lingerie!! I was at a bridal shower this weekend for my cousin and someone gave her the cutest underwear that said "Tied the Knot" and I loved them!
Write my Vows and get Josh to write his..
I might do a boudoir photo shoot in the fall to give him as a gift..we'll see how I feel when the time comes.
I've got to make hair flowers, and boutonneirs out of some silk cymbidum (green) orchids I had bought.
I need to find my accessories, hairpeice and shoes to go with my dress
Whoa, the what's left seems to grow everytime I look at it..I better get on some of those things!
And..stress is back!
Have a great day ladies, and Summer is gonna FLY BY so basically we only have 3 months left!
