I didn't get much done this weekend on the wedding. I've kind of come to a point where things can't be ordered yet or I'm not sure what needs to be ordered. I also need to come up with a list of things that need to get done or bought in the next two months.
I am meeting with Christine this week so I'm sure she will have some ideas and thoughts on what needs to happen from here on out. We have had a lot of trouble getting together so far...seems someone gets sick or can't make it at the last second so we are doing wedding stuff both this Thursday night after work and next Saturday afternoon. I'm looking forward to it and hope to get a lot done. The next few weekends are starting to look busy so I will be so happy to cross some more things off the list.
Today John and I went to The Tux Shop in Northgate and talked to a salesperson on whether we should have the guys wear tuxes or suits. For a while now we were thinking charcoal grey suits with indigo blue ties. Well today, we changed our minds. The guys are going to wear black tuxes with black vests and different colored ties depending on their role in the wedding.
John is out of town in Reno this weekend so I'm having some of my girls over for wedding crafting. Saturday my coordinator Christine and I will make mats for the centerpieces. Sunday a bunch of us will make tissue paper flower garlands, more tissue paper flowers, fold boxes, and start working on the escort cards and table names. I hope to get a lot done! Every detail is not worked out yet so hopefully I'll get some inspiration and ideas along they way too!
It's also SUNNY in Seattle! I hope to get out on my bike at least once this weekend. It's too nice to be indoors. I hope it stays nice for next Saturday but it isn't looking good. John and I have engagement photos on Feb. 27 with Amelia Soper but if it rains it will be moved to March 13 probably.
I also bought a sweater and an umbrella for the wedding today...just in case its cold and/or wet on May 22. Cuz you really never know what the weather is going to do here. Who knew it would be 57 degrees on February 19th? I still can't get over how nice it is today.
I've been thinking a lot this morning about what I want to get done this weekend. I'm looking forward to THREE days off.
1. Declutter my home. Organize. Throw things away. Rearrange. 2. Shop for a new mattress 3. Work on wedding decor 4. Try on rings 5. Look at Men's ties 6. Figure out wedding music 7. Work out 8. Relax, get outside, see friends
We'll see how I do... we are going out tonight and Saturday night. I need to fit in seeing my grandparents and would love to go snowboarding....and if we don't go snowboarding I'd love to go out for breakfast or at least make breakfast... Sunday is also Valentine's Day.
And how could I forget...the Olympics start today!
Our invitations went out this morning! I gave the guy at the post office two shoe boxes full of invites this morning. I cringed a little when I heard him dumping all of them into the cart around the corner from me...I've put so much time into them, I'm worried they will fall apart or something on the way to people. My hope is they make it to everyone okay and we start getting RSVPs soon. :)
