Only three months to go!  It seems like this was the magic number to really start wrapping up the wedding planning.  It’s really not so much planning any more as executing ideas.  Eric and I had planned on going camping the other weekend, but the weather didn’t feel like cooperating so we ended up staying inside and finishing a few projects.

Where we should have been…

We got most of the invitations addressed, I got all of the bunting cut out and I made the cake toppers and flower girl wands.  We also got most of the ceremony and reception songs picked out.  Thank God for bad weather because we’re not going to want to stay inside when it gets nice out!

We still have to finalize the guys’ outfits and the ceremony wording.  Fortunately, I think those are the biggest things right now.  I took a look at my to-do list and it’s still pretty large, but it’s composed mostly of tasks like “get boarding reservations for the dog”, and “finalize wedding day timeline”.  It’s a good thing, too, because my brain is no longer capable of making big wedding decisions.  I found it’s limit a while ago.

In a perfect world, we will get everything done by the beginning of July so the only thing we’ll have to do that month is put out any fires that pop up, which they WON’T (fingers crossed).   We’ll get the invitations out at the end of this month, and hopefully it’s smooth sailing from there.  Don’t laugh.  It could happen…

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!
