Alright. Update! I had the day off yesterday so I got a few things off my list, and some that weren't on the list (I swear, I need to stop finding things that need to get done haha)
Write vows (after some discussion Juan insisted that he wanted to do this)
- Finish up playlist for the party
- Make playlist for dinner
- Get kids' menu choices - as we stand we might not even have any kids at the wedding anymore.
- finish up photo booth
- finish putting tags to all the fans
- assemble emergency kits
- Pre-assemble welcome bags
- Send welcome brochures to vistaprint
- Get groomsmen gifts
- start tanning
- finalize the hair and makeup ideas
- First dance - our lessons start next thursday. yay!!
Call hotel to finalize details (booking of hair and makeup appts, etc)
- Get wedding license and contact officiant for a meeting before the wedding
- Find a nice lipstick and fake eyelashes to wear on the day of the wedding
- Create a wedding party itinerary for the rehearsals and timeline for the wedding
- send rings to get cleaned
Ok, so last night I had some sudden inspiration and decided to write this baby up. The first part was easy, but when it came down to the actual vows, it was the hardest part. I think maybe because I'm not great with saying my feelings, I'm better showing them. I have no clue how i'm going to get through these because I was bawling as I was writing them. We decided to do them in Spanish, even though the rest of the ceremony will be in English. Do you guys want to read them or are they going to be a sap party? I can always translate them hahah. I feel like they're a bit cliche, but at the end of the day that's how I feel .
Hair and Makeup.
I can't believe I forgot to show you guys what I decided. My makeup will look something like this:

Bridal Party Itinerary
I wanted to make something a bit more detailed than what's on the brochures and include the rehearsal dinner and a more detailed itinerary of the wedding day. I don't expect to keep the times as written in stone (aside from the start of the ceremony and the reception) but it's just to keep track of things. They're not as great as some of the designs you guys have created, but I'm pretty happy with how they turned out! I made slightly different ones for guys vs. girls, since their getting ready portion is much simpler than ours
I also don't have the times and locations for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner so I left it with blanks to fill out once we get there and get those sorted out. The plan is to just make a reservation at a restaurant for the rehearsal dinner. It will just be our families, bridal party and their dates.
Funny story, which I won't tell Juan because I'll drive him loco . I downloaded some new fonts off the internet and oh man, why didn't I think of this before! I'm reconsidering printing the reception signs again with a new font lol. I really do need to stop changing my mind about everything haha but I really like some of the new fonts I downloaded. I loved a bunch but for some reason they looked awful when spelling Sofia & Juan, they looked amazing when spelling anything else. It was a tad frustrating haha.
