This last week the get-er-done list for the wedding sped up. Here’s the update since my last wedding update post:

  • Designed and started work on our invitations

    • All paper purchased minus the matting…I’m waiting for a JoAnn’s sale 🙂

    • Calligrapher booked and envelops dropped off for scripting!

    • Made a decision on the how to close the pocketfold…and I’m not telling until later!

    • We even have a mock-up completed!

  • Centerpiece prototype dropped off to florist. See below for the sneak peak…it won’t be exactly the same as at the wedding so that why I’m ok showing it 🙂 Thanks to Matt for building the prototype! We’re going up in three weeks to the Northwoods to cut down the tree!

  • Completed our registries – Amazon, Crate and Barrel and REI.

  • Started work on our website. Domain name bought now we just have some design tweaking and filling it up with content. No sweat!

  • Still need to finalize our wedding bands…good thing we’ve got the hook up in that department!

  • Placed orders for the bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dresses, guys ties and picked out the guys tuxedos.

  • Set an appointment to meet with a local musician for our ceremony music…and started selecting music for the reception.

  • Booked a hair and makeup artist for the ladies.

  • And we have so many appointments to look forward too!

    • Cake appointment

    • Tasting appointment at our reception location

We just tying up some loose ends like making our ring box for the ceremony, figuring out gifts for the bridal party and a few scheduling items. Not too bad. It’s funny, I felt like right after we got engaged we were go-go-go with the wedding. Then we had a bit of a down time in the fall/winter and now it’s picking back up. The most important thing is Matt and I are having fun with it. Talking through our different options and seeing how we can incorporate our tastes and styles. Oh, and getting just a little excited too. Stay tuned for the next update…maybe I’ll even do more sneak peaks of some of the items I mentioned above!
