I've got something to wear!

I went dress shopping with Adrienne, Katie, and Marissa this weekend ... a great team, we all had a good laugh and it was a fun time. Most importantly, I found my dress! I'm going back Wednesdady to order it and get measured and all of that. I am SO thrilled. Not posting it because something's gotta be a surprise for Tim right?

We've also registered now at Bed Bath & Beyond and Crate & Barrel. Both places the people were great and helpful and offered us drinks. It was fun. I do not, however, recommend registering at Linens N Things. We waited around awhile to be helped by a grumpy lady who told us LNT is "playing down" the registry .... oooookay. So we scrapped that and went to BB&B where the people were great.

We've received a few invitation samples, it's definitely worth seeing them in person rather than just online. It's nice to feel them and see what people will actually get. I'm excited to get the next 2 batches of them and then really narrow it down

Cake tasting is this Friday!

Ooooh nice

The wonders of the internet mean super-cheap home projects ordered from the internet ( woohoo!) and finding out the place you were going doesn't have the dresses you wanted to try on (sad).

Going dress shopping this Saturday. I'm pretty excited. We've got to figure out what to do about our potential photographer who lives pretty far away from us and doesn't have a driver's license for a few more weeks ... hmmm. Hopefully nobody else books him until we can figure it out! Gotta send the cake lady our choices, too. I'm pumped for Lemon cake with seedless raspberry jam ... mmmmmm

Brainstormed about the rehearsal dinner over the weekend with dad and I think we came up with a good plan, which Tim is into. Now we just need to talk to his mom & step dad when they're home. Things are going.

Today, I leave you with a potential invite:

Check this out

We have a DJ! We booked a meeting to figure everything out for the day-of with our venue, and a cake tasting!

We're totally rolling.

Okay, so we've been total slackers. The to-do list I posted last week? Well, we've done one of those things, sort of. I emailed the potential DJ this a.m. about meeting up. Hopefully tonight we can confirm the photog we want to go with and arrange a meeting with him. Hopefully.

We did do a little rehearsal-dinner research this weekend, picking up info from a couple of restaurants about the possibility of a taco or fajita bar (fun!). I also go info on the pricing for getting your hair done at this recommended place. I don't know what I was imagining but it cost a little more than I thought, considering the area and that it's just for styling ($35 trial run, $45 day-of). There are a couple of other places I may check out, and I'm thinking I might book a hair cut at whatever place comes out on top, just to make sure I like it before booking.

And, that's about it. Tonight--save the dates. Cross your fingers.

getting out of beach-mode

Well it's tough to switch from week-at-the-beach to weekly grind. So far the only "to-do" we've checked off this week is just a little while ago I booked a discount rate at the Holiday Inn in Keene. $10 more per night than the Best Western, but we didn't have to give a set number of rooms and the price doesn't expire. Two good things. When we get the real web site up and running I'll have those links and info on there, as well as some other nice inns and options in the area.

The to-dos for the week?
1. finish save the dates (half left to make and mail)
2. call/email the dj to talk nitty-gritty & hopefully book
3. talk to the potential photog about meeting
And over this week or the next...
1. figure out where to do some dress shopping ... and when
2. book meeting to figure out the details of our event and ... best part ... TASTE CAKES!

Today I leave you with this lovely photo as a centerpiece inspiration
