It’s been a roller-coaster of weeks… for those of you that have in the past or are currently planning a wedding, did you ever want to throw your hands up and say “I’m done?”
It’s not that I am going to be a runaway bride and escape to some private island by myself by any means, but I feel as though some pulling of the hair is inevitable…I do keep reminding myself though, just as Jeff keeps telling me sweetly: this too shall pass.
I would very much like to be able to say “oh I don’t care about that detail” or “oh, I’ll love whatever you decide”...bless the Good Lord–please let me get through this without going cuckoo… I know Jeff would appreciate having “me” back again at the end of all this-ha! I know I’ll quit complaining… this is all to say that everything isn’t always as it seems–not as glamorous, but still fun nonetheless!
So back to the issue at hand…115 more days–this week has more fun in store:
Thursday= Final Cake Design(S) and Tasting
This fat kid loves her cake, and definitely wants to eat it, too… we’ve got our tastebuds all ready to go tomorrow afternoon–Kellie from The Bake Shoppe
is meeting with us at her studio/bakery/office for all things cake–I can hardly contain my excitement with all the fun flavors out there… it’s gotta be something original and ever-so-tasty…any suggestions??
Friday=Round 2 Dress Fitting
We’re going back for the 2nd time to Arzelle’s to meet with my alterations guru… this woman is incredible and I can’t wait to see the magic she has worked–a little taking in here and smotinh out there goes a long way and I am hoping we’ll be close to finished after this try-on…after Mom and Meg learn how to bustle my dress!
Finalize Ceremony Music Selections with Trio
I am working with Wedding Musicians Company
to select ceremony music… we’ll be incorporating woodwinds, a cello, organist, and piano player and we’re finalizing the music this week–think classic and very traditional wedding music–yay!!
This weekend, Jeff will be hanging out with his brother-in-law, which means more wedding stuff for me… picking up our stationery, working on gifts for party hostesses and wedding party, and collaborating with Mekala from The Tie That Binds
for all things weddding-weekend paper-related… table cards, placecards, out-of-town gift bags and labels–oh I’m in heaven!
Check out some of her stuff–she is fantastic and uber creative:
