Oh my goodness golly, what a day!! I think I sold a house and while I met with the buyers, the wife found out that our wedding was just a few months away. You’ll never believe what this women does for a living??!! She is a cake maker, but not just any kind of cake – fancy donut cakes – with tiers and frosting and pure deliciousness. One of her cakes was just featured in the most recent Brides magazine (I think its on Brides.com), anyway, I’ve been looking for an option other than a normal cake and I think I found it!!
She asked if Chris and I could come by next week and sample a few different cakes, I think he will be as excited as I am.
I spoke with our florist today and all is in line for our flowers. I also made a quick call to The Lodge to confirm the food. Check and Check.
Tomorrow I need to call and set up my final fitting of my dress. I’ve been fighting with a few pounds on the scale lately and need to make sure my dress is still good. This is so stressful!! I need to get better about watching what Im eating and getting my butt to the gym. 830 tomorrow I’m there. Maybe I should start a blog on health and fitness, I’ll talk to Chris about this, maybe that would help to keep me accountable. Anyway, I’m getting off target… squirrel!!….. :), I will be calling the bridal shop to set up this appointment for later in the week.
I need to call my cousin, who is also our photographer, and confirm that she is good to go. She is an amazing talent and I feel extremely lucky that she agreed to do our wedding. She doesn’t normally do family members events, but she made an exception for us.
Our DJ is a friend of Chris’, I need to remind him to reach out and double check that we are on his calendar.
I also will be getting together with the moms to make sure we have all the invitations ready to go. Everything I’ve read states that they should be mailed 6-8 weeks out and I’d like to stick closer to the 8 week mark. Hopefully, we can finish and get them out tomorrow. The invitations were selected a few months ago, around the same time we came up with the guest list. Let me tell you what a fun day that was!! HA! My mom is one of 10 and needless to say her family is huge. It took some work to whittle down the list and a whole lot of compromise, in the end I think everyone was happy.
OK- so tomorrow I have a few hours of work in the morning, a bunch of little of phone calls, a reminder to Chris about DJ and then over to my mom’s in the afternoon for the invitations. Oh and the Gym! I’ve already forgotten, Sheesh, I have issues!
