Is it August 6th yet?
We are now in the final countdown to our much anticipated trip to Florida to get married.....I.AM.SO.READY!
While i still have a lot of loose ends to tie up at work - i knocked a lot of wedding 'to-do's' off my list since the last update.
Below is an update to the last
million or so couple of things i had left to do in regards to the wedding! Fax the photographer the picture list- they will go by this the day of the wedding. I need to make sure I'm not leaving any important pictures out!Done!
- Send the DJ (reception) the music list. Still need to do this!
- Decide on a first dance song for Chris and I- we have it down to 2. He likes one I like the other, go figure! Still haven't decided on one....although I'm pretty sure we will be going with my choice :)
Find a reception dress- i have 3 ordered but they haven't come in yet- hopefully 1 of them works! :)This was a big fat FAIL. All 3 of the dresses i ordered did not work- my original plan was to wear an ivory dress (not my wedding dress) to the reception. Do you know how hard it is to find a semi- casual white or ivory dress......very hard. So after 3 failed attempts and a lot of stress i am no longer attempting to wear a white/ivory dress to the reception. Thanks to my dear friend Emily who is letting me borrow a beautiful blue dress of hers! So- checking that off the list! Grooms wedding attire.Done- the shirt fits perfect and the pants are being altered as we speak!
- Marriage License- Can't worry about until we are in Florida!
- First dance song for my dad and myself- Waiting on my dad!
- First dance song for Chris and his mom- Waiting on my MIL!
Update Beazley and Dutches kennel cough vaccine.Both are heading to the doctor Thursday!
- Get Chris a wedding gift!!! I think i am going to get him a reel that he really wants- such a boy! I need to get on this!
Figure out how to get all of my things to FL: wedding dress, gifts for everyone, clothes, makeup, shoes, wedding bands, etc, etc, etc!!!I have decided it is going to be too hard (and expensive) to mail down all of the gifts i have for the people coming to FL with us. Instead i will give the gifts out at the reception. Finish the wedding day jewelry search- I've purchased a couple of necklaces but I'm not in love with any of them. Sigh.Finally done with this- this was a major source of stress. I ended up getting a really pretty necklace from Macy's - it wasn't what i was really going for, but is beautiful and will work nonetheless. Pay our honeymoon reservation in full-Done! Have my bachelorette party- next weekend WOOHOODone- and it was SO MUCH FUN!
And last but not least....
Have my bridal portraits taken! I am finally crossing this off the list TODAY, thank God!
**Please pray i dont melt in this heat....oye!
11 days until we are Key Largo bound.....and 15 days until we say 'I DO'!
