Oh Sweet September.

September 8, 2010 at 5:38 pm (Wedding)

The following post was started on September 1. I was slack and failed to post it…so here it is.

It is hard to believe that it is September 1 and that it has been three weeks since my last post. It isn’t that I haven’t had anything to write about, I have lacked the time and motivation.

Will only 24 days remaining until Joseph and I commit ourselves to one another for the REST of our LIVES, I thought I would go over a few things that we have accomplished and a few things that need to get done.

Accomplished:

INVITATIONS! I was convinced that these 5×7 pieces of paper with fancy writing were going to be the death of me. After my sister-of-honor designed them it was up to me to print them. However, my printing and sizing skills obviously aren’t what they should be and what was first thought to be an easy endeavor ended in a horrible disaster. Luckily, Joseph came to the rescue and sent the invites to Professional Printers in Columbia. THEY. WERE. AMAZING. They were fast and efficient and the invites turned out more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.

Cake: The cake has been chosen and ordered. Yum, yum. The cake topper and table decor has been decided upon and purchased so now we are just waiting on the day to arrive.

Flowers: The flowers have been chosen and ordered. I collaborated with my friend who will be doing the flowers and we came up with some amazing ideas!

Reception Decor: the books have been collected, the flower vessels obtained and table runners secured. We are ready to go. My mom has made some additional decor that looks beautiful!

Wedding party gifts: We have these under control. Some are beautiful, some are tasty, some are playful and all are perfect.

Semi-Done:

Rehearsal Dinner: We have picked a place and called them to reserve it. That’s about it. Who knew you needed to send out rehearsal dinner invitations? Not me.

Cake stand: Since we didn’t want to spend a fortune on an 18″ cake stand that cost 1.2 million dollars, I decided to head on over to Lowe’s and buy the supplies to make our own cake stand. The cost? Approximately $30.

Needs Serious Attention:

Favors: Okay. So we know what kind of favors we are going to offer at the reception, we have the supplies to assemble said favors. So what’s the problem? Lack of motivation. My wedding planning motor has burned out. I am sure it will kick into high gear.

Decor: There are minor decor items that need to get done, however, if they do not get done it is not a big deal as these items are not necessary.

Programs: I have though about programs…and I have thought about programs and that is as far as I have gotten.

Music: Since we are throwing some tunes on a MAC computer and letting them roll, we have to first make a playlist. We have yet to do this. I suppose we somewhat have a playlist ready but it needs some attention.

Food: We have a few food items in mind, however, we have yet to nail them down. I should get with my caterer on this.

There are a ton of other things that I have left out whether they are on the “done list” or the “need-to-do list”. With only three weeks remaining I am sure it will all get done.

Gulp…..
