I know it's been a while since I've updated..... 6 months to be exact! So sorry about that. It's been a crazy 6 months of wedding planning. It's been so much fun though. We have 139 days til we are hitched. The only reason I know that is because I just looked at my wedding website and it always tells you the days at the top of the page.
Right now, we have about everything figured out. This Friday, Tim and I are going to check out the dishes/flatware/glasses rentals and put a deposit down for those. Other than that, everything else is good, now we just have to save money to pay for it all! Lots of work going on between now and then.
It's been an interesting process. We are trying to save money anyway we can, so there are a lot of unconventional things happening. For instance, we are not getting married in a church. We are having the ceremony and reception all in the same venue. Since we'll be having a lot of out of town guests, we figured it would be much easier for everyone to go to one place instead of trying to travel between venues. So with that being said, everything will be set up for the reception when our guests arrive and then they will be sit at their tables during the ceremony. Don't worry, everyone will be able to see the ceremony.
The only thing I am nervous about right now is that because we are renting the venue for just the day, we won't be able to get in to set up til 10am that morning. IF the venue is not rented the night before, we will be able to get in after 6pm and set up, but we won't know if it's available til 2 weeks before the wedding. Fingers crossed no one else rents it out for that weekend. If not, I won't know what anything looks like til I'm walking down the aisle and THAT is stressing me out. We have a great friend of ours who is going to be our Day of Coordinator, so she will be in charge of setting everything up with the help of her parents, and hopefully a few of our family members. We still have to figure a lot of those things out. Just a lot of little things to think about now.
The next 6 weeks are going to be very busy but then I'm taking a week off to travel to Ohio . It's Haley's high school graduation, my bridal shower and bachelorette party. I hope these 6 weeks go by fast!!
I'll try to update more often.
