I obviously didn't do a very good job of scheduling posts for this week. And I'm working this week (obviously working pretty hard since I'm blogging right now) so I haven't had time to write posts during the day. However, we are making some wedding related progress! Last night David and I composed our 'revised' guest list in Excel and started filling in addresses. We've got about 30 done and 150 to go, but I think starting the process was half the battle. We're hoping to get our STDs sent out next week (finally!). I also brought home the materials for the centerpieces, so hopefully we'll make some progress on those while I have David and my mom's extra hands to help and I'm going to be starting on the flower girl tutus (yes, I decided to make them - I'll be sure to post a tutorial!) within the next couple days. We've got quite the to-do list for the rest of the time I'm home:
Find 2 hotel options to reserve blocks of rooms for OOT guests - Has been on David's list for the last couple months
Attend the bridal show next Saturday and hopefully find a good deal on transportation (limo) - This is one of David's tasks since he's the one who is adament about a limo and will be paying for it
Meet with the jeweler tomorrow evening about my custom wedding bands
Look at options for our living arrangements after the wedding!
Finish the STDs and get them sent
Update our wedding website before the STDs are sent out since they have the link on them
Register! Likely at Target and Bed, Bath, and Beyond
- Book our honeymoon! I think I'm most excited about this!
David is arranging a time for him and his guys to go pick out their tuxes and get measured while all of them are in town over the break
Meet with the wedding coordinator at the church we're getting married in
What's sad is I think I'm forgetting some things. But I'm so excited to get some of that big stuff checked off our list - It will relieve a lot of stress for me, and a little of the frustration I have about David not getting any of his things done. :) I can't promise that I'll be blogging every day, but I will promise to update you all with the progress we make as soon as I get a chance! Hope everyone is doing well and if I don't blog again before Thursday - Happy New Year!!
Are you using this 'break' (from school - if you still have one) to get some things crossed off your list? And- slightly unrelated-how are you ringing in the new year?
