I’ve been crazy busy the last three weeks;  I’ve had to move and travel to Helena & DC for work  so there’s just been no time to post anything lately.   I’ll have to do a quick update of what’s been happening.  My dress came in the other day!  I’ll go into the dress shop Friday to try it on.  I’m a little nervous because it’s a mix of two dresses and I’ve never seen the final product on before.  The ladies at the shop said it’s gorgeous on the hanger, so I’ll have to take their word for it for now.  I’m not going to be posting pictures of it, so really this post is more informative than fun.  Sorry!

We’re also in the process of finding ceremony musicians, which is turning out to be a lot harder than I thought it would be.  It’s not time to panic yet, but I’m starting to sweat it.  Hopefully we’ll find someone good soon.

We’re only 6 months away from the wedding, so things are starting to get rolling.  We’ve received the invitations and they look fabulous! Those will get sent out in a few months.  The guys’ suits are all picked out, but we’ll have to go in and put something together for our dads.  We have an appointment with the flower lady in a few weeks, and after that I think most of the wedding planning will be in the details (figuring out the timeline, picking out songs, confirming addresses, etc…).  Super exciting, huh?   I hope August gets here quickly!


I took the plunge and put the down payment on my dress today! I’m really excited about it.  It’s actually a custom design, so it’s going to take a little longer to make.  I loved the top of one dress and the bottom of another, so I’m going to have them combine the two (nothing too outrageous or bridezilla-y).  Luckily, they were both by the same designer, and they love doing custom work like this.  I’m slightly nervous but mostly excited to see the result in 5-6 months. Sorry, there will be no pictures to show you what it looks like.  The dress is going to be my little secret (well, mine and my mom’s and probably my bridesmaids’ little secret).  But I can tell you it won’t look like this:

Octo-dress. Good stuff.

Next we’ll need to start figuring out what my bridesmaids will be wearing, and what Eric and his groomsmen will be wearing.  We have a few ideas, but that’s about as far as we’ve gotten.  But that’s ok, we still have 10 months to go!
