I have been a busy Bride the past couple days, and my to do list is dwindling down to just a few things. I get the best feeling when I highlight something on my list.
I’m starting with the most important part With all our extra work, stress from wedding, and leak of vacations together, I’m really excited about our Honeymoon. We booked our Cruise last week. The week after our wedding, we will be on a boat for 5 days! Just the two of us! We decided in January, we will go visit our friends in Minnesota. Two vacations are always better than one.
Sunday, Huck and I went to get my ring (since we didn’t get to Saturday) It doesn’t fit perfectly with my engagement ring, but it is pretty close. I just did not feel comfortable paying over $1,000 for a ring I didn’t get to see until after I paid for it.
I picked up my sized ring this yesterday. It looks great. They didn’t give me a box, for the ring (which I thought was weird), so I wore it all day yesterday. I don’t want to lose it I figured I would take it off today and wait until we are married!
Huck ordered his ring from Shane Company and it will be here Thursday.
I ordered chairs and music for the ceremony, yesterday. I’m so excited about the music!
We went to Jos A Banks to look for Huck a suit, but they do not have Khaki suits in stock. That is a summer item! I thought we lived in South Florida? Where it is always Summer!
I did find a Khaki Suit at JCP online for $28. Mega Sale! SCORE!!
We got our marriage license yesterday! We talked about just getting married there. $150 and no stressed sounded like a deal to me.
I found some blue flowers, like the ones I used for the bridesmaid bouquets. I mixed a few yellow and blue together. I think I like it. The yellow is a lighter color than the other flowers. I’m still thinking about it. I thought about even going flowerless.
Originally, our plan was to make the food ourselves. Crazy I know. Huck and I have a cool idea for food, and I called a few places yesterday about pricing and discovered it would not be that much. I think the extra money would be worth not having to worry about it.
We decided, a while back, to do cupcakes instead of a wedding cake. On Saturday, Suzanne asked if she could make them. I’m really excited to see what she comes up with. The ones she made Saturday were AMAZING!!
TO DO LIST
I still have a few things on my list that I need to do. A few will be last minute projects.
- Finish Wedding Party Gifts
- Find Huck a tie
- Finish favors
- HAIR!! I need to get my hair cut, and I still have not figured out who is going to do my hair on Saturday. I’ve called 6 places in the area and they are all booked on the 3rd.
- Determine chair layout for ceremony
- Food for Beach Party
- Iron fabric and cut burlap
- Pick up my dress on the 18th
- Finish aisle decorations
- Guest Book. I like the finger print idea, but I’ve read that it can get messy, and I don’t want “some people” making penis shaped finger prints to hang on our wall.
I feel better about my list. Everything is coming together. We only have 17 DAYS! 2 weeks until my Mommy gets here!! I still can not believe October is almost over!! Where did this year go??
Well that is my wedding update. Since, I have been slacking on the food, I thought I would give you a sneak peak of my lunch today. It was GOOD!
I made soup for my sick Fiancé! I gave him my cold
Hope everyone is enjoying their Tuesday.
