So much has been done.
We’ve started the search for wedding bands.
I had my hair trial run.
I have majority of the favors done.
Majority of the invites have been addressed.
I’ve purchased all supplies needed for our Guestbook/Table numbers.
We had our official engagement pictures taken.
I went and tried on my dress!
That was quite an experience! I’m being very selective about who see’s my dress prior to the big day, so I was very thankful when my HS friend Sarah agreed to come with me, with her adorable little almost 4 year-old daughter Chloe. Something I will tell you about my dress is that the dress I tried on back in January had silver stitching on it. When I looked at the details of this dress and the options available it read “White/Ivory” for the actual color of the dress and “Silver/Ivory” for the color of the stitching. I immediately had the vision of the ivory dress with ivory stitching. My vision was more classic and romantic compared to more modern, which I feel the silver stitching created. So that’s what was ordered. Needless to say I was extremely anxious and curious to see my dress with the ivory details. I may be biased, but the dress is beautiful! I won’t go to the extreme and say it’s completely different dress compared to the one I tried on in January but the look is just different. My vision of more classic and romantic came true and it’s beautiful!!! Even more surprising is that the dress fits like a glove!!! Back in January when I got measured I was between a size 16 – 18. I ordered a 14. Obviously not a big stretch, but a risk. So it was a huge relief when I was able to get it on! The goal of course is to eventually get it taken in, and alterations won’t start until the middle of August, but there is a weight lifted knowing that if I don’t lose any more weight, the dress will indeed fit!
My dad and I selected our “father/daughter” dance. And we’ve selected the “in-law” dance.
I’ve ordered bridesmaid jewelry, along with vases and our set for the Unity Sand Ceremony.

Another big thing that I kept going back and forth on was the whole videographer thing. I’m super happy that we decided to go with Shutterbliss Cinema. We got a promotional rate on top of a group discount and am really looking forward to working with them! There work is top quality, and it’ll be a great piece to share with friends and family who aren’t able to be there.
The work group that I’m in recently hired someone new and it’s been fabulous because she’s getting married 2 weeks before I am!!! We talk wedding all the time, and it’s been so nice to have someone to talk to who’s going through exactly the same thing! We get to bounce ideas off of each other and cheer each other on with we get to cross something off of our “to do” list! She booked the same videographer, which is how we got a “group discount”! And I hope to do the same with lighting.
There is still lots to be done, but truly we could get married tomorrow and have everything major taken care of to have a fabulous day!
