    I literally just printed your packing list!  Thank you for sharing it! ;)

     

    It's so exciting to see two brides approach their wedding dates!  So exciting!  I hope the next few days are super stress free for you!

    My goodness, thanks everyone! The support here has been so wonderful!

     

    It FINALLY, REALLY hit me yesterday (a little late, I know haha) that I am getting married. We've been planning for so long that I guess it felt like it would never get here!

    Anyway, while I was leaving work, one of my co-workers asked when my last day was. I told her Friday and she said, "well, I guess today was  my last day with you. The next time I see you, you'll be a married woman!" ....The biggest, cheesiest smile appeared across my face when she had said that.

    It was really exciting to hear that!

    Welcome Letter

    This is a rather rough draft, but I thought I'd share what I have so far.

    I want to change the wording of some things, but this gives a general idea of how ours will look.

    Once we/I finalize it, we'll take them to a print shop for high-quality ink and paper.

    This week:

    -Get through my last three shifts of work - Friday

    -Email our guests with "reminders," including restaurant attire - I have this written, I am just waiting to send it out on Saturday/Sunday that way people don't overlook it

    -In said email, include rehearsal info for his mom, my mom, MOH, Best Man, and musician - see above

    -Print table numbers & place cards - The WC and I keep going back and forth with idea. I am afraid of it possibly being too windy, so I think we are going to do pretty frames from a vendor for $5 a piece.

    -Print Welcome Letter and put in cups - finished revising letter and take it to a print shop this weekend

    -Take the dogs to the vet for their influenza vaccine (kennel cough shot) - Today. Poor fur babies don't know what's coming.

    -Make sure all receipts, wedding day confirmation letter, and flight info are filed together and easily accessible

    -Have a list of items in each suit case (in my purse) in case something happens to our luggage

    -Print a copy of our wedding ceremony script

    -Mani/pedi

    @TinkerSofi

    I'm really excited about my "something blue!"

    I purchased a custom blue dress label from etsy that I am having sewn in to it!  :)
