By chipping I mean CRUSHING wedding planning. So far everything is going smoothly. My motto has been that I want to get as much as I can done now so that I don’t stress out closer to the wedding and so that I have a smooth wedding day. But then again, I’m marrying this guy so it doesn’t get much better than this.
This past week I talked to a florist and am meeting with her next week. She came highly recommended and is familiar with my venues so I am excited. Also, made hair and make up appointments for my entourage. Also, got in a block of rooms at the hotel. Had a little problem with this one since when I called a few weeks ago they told me they were sold out! Sold out!!!! 8 months in advance? Not sure what the deal was but Ryan was able to call (just to double check) and get a block of rooms with no problem. They aren’t sold out. Phew! That has been the only wedding problem so far and already sorted it out.
Deciding on Bridesmaid dresses soon. I’m not posting pictures of it til after the wedding but I’ll give you a hint, THEY’RE PINK!
I found this random picture online and LOVE these bridesmaid dresses. Sadly, it doesn’t come in the material I wanted 😦 But was also completely guessing at the designer but you get the idea.
Met with our cake lady a few weeks ago as well. Not only is she freaking amazing but she is the sweetest lady you will ever meet. If you are in need of a cake for any occasion contact Cakes by Maria & Joe. She designed our cake on the spot for us but I CAN’T WAIT to see it in person. She’s allowing us to have a different flavor of cake for each layer as well as an extra sheet cake in the back. She may or may not have pink funfetti cake! Ahhhhhh!!!!
I’ve been chipping away at the address list and getting close to having them all collected. I swear I’ve been trying to cut it down but every time I do, 5 more people get added and the guest list is long enough as it is.
It may seem like I’m ahead on my planning but with a large summer wedding you have to plan early or everything gets booked. We’ve already cut it close on a few items.
