Hi there! It’s been a couple of weeks since I have done a wedding update! Time is flying by and my to-do list is getting a little longer each day. I still haven’t reached that point of being too stressed out so I think that’s good!
So here are some updates!
We finally picked out our invitation suite! This has been such a fun process so far, now our stationary vendor is creating a real life proof so that we can approve them and send them off to production! I am still doing pretty well on timing thankfully so no stress there. My goal is to have them in my hands by end of July.
Next up, who would’ve thought shoes played such an impact lol, but I ordered a pair for the wedding and of course my bridal shower as well! Deciding took me forever because there are so many things to think about, especially if you are a detailed person like me! I personally am obsessed with detailed shots so I wanted a pair of shoes that were going to photograph well. I am waiting for them to come in and hopefully they are keepers.
Our wedding bands came in and we will be picking those up soon, can’t wait to share the details of our bands and how I actually picked the perfect one to complete my wedding ring set.
I went to a consultation for my wedding dress fitting. So long story short, I decided to embark on a weight loss journey in the beginning of February 2018, and my wedding dress arrived in January of 2018. So back in January the dress fit me perfect with probably few alterations needed. Well I took the dress in to get a consultation and since I’ve lost about 17 lbs the dress is pretty much big all around! Not a bad problem to have but this means a little more alterations than expected. My cutoff date to keep losing weight is mid – July. Once that time frame hits I have to “plateau” so that they can start on my dress and have it ready by October. Again, so crazy how fast time is flying by.
Things to do:
I still have not picked out flower girl dresses!! I have been looking on a very on and off basis and I am giving myself a mental deadline by end of July. Not sure why I am making this harder than it should be honestly.
Attend my bridal shower! I can’t believe it’s already coming up but I am so excited to see it all come together! I know my mom, moh and bridesmaids will make it a literal dream come true for me 🙂
Start thinking about wedding day gifts for the bridal party. I have some great ideas already but I need to start actually purchasing the gifts so it’s one less thing on my list.
Since I live in a different city than the wedding vendors, I need to start scheduling our last appointments before the wedding with enough time to make travel plans. I know I need to do a follow up with our caterer to finalize our menu. Also a meeting with the DJ to create our day of timeline. I am also going to schedule a meeting with our event designer to finalize our decor details as well.
That’s about it for now! It’s still so crazy that we are less than 5 months away from the big day! We are both so excited for this day to finally come to life!
