It has been absolutely crazy around here y’all! I am so sorry I haven’t been on and updated everyone. Matt and I have officially started looking at townhouses to live in after the wedding so I spend my nights searching craigslist, trulia and other various sites for possible home options!! But a lot has been happening in #072013 world too 🙂
My VERY first Bridal Shower took place on April 20th. It was absolutely beautiful and the girls did such an incredible job. I felt so loved, encouraged and definitely didn’t want it to end!! It was also super excited to open all the precious gifts for our new house … YAY for decorating and organizing our space! (No, I really AM excited to do that!!).
The 3 month mark has also come and gone … can you believe?! In less than 3 months we will be MARRIED! Completely ridiculous y’all!! Here’s a few things we’ve gotten done in wedding planning world:
-booked a rehearsal dinner location with Matt’s parents
-finished ordering the bridesmaid gifts, flower girl gift, father of the bride gift & parents of the groom gift
-ordered rose petals for our ceremony
-finished all but 1 sign for the reception!!
-ordered our invitations (eeekkk!)
-filled out the Wedding Day timeline for our amazing photographer
-lost 5lbs. (YES!) and therefore scheduled my first dress fitting!
-found jewelry for my dress (bracelets & earrings)
-found a babysitter for the church nursery during the ceremony
-DIY’d our “mr” and “mrs” toasting glasses
-officially picked all ceremony music (now onto the reception!)
Here’s what I’m focusing on THIS month:
-finish the last sign
-make “mr” and “mrs” chair signs
-make “reserved” table signs
-stamp, address and mail the invitations!!!
-continue working on my “wedding dress body”
-work on love story table
I KNOW these next 2 1/2 months are going to go by so fast. Between trying to find a house, our friends wedding festivities, 2 more showers and both our bachelor/bachelorette weekends – it’s about to get a little chaotic over here in Harrisonburg! But you know what? I wouldn’t ask for anything more 🙂
