Well, hello again. I know it has been awhile since my last blog. I have been busy with finals for school and christmas stuff. Now that it is all over I can relax a little and sit down to plan some more. I am very excited because my cousin is going to help with all the flowers for the wedding. All I have to do is buy the flowers, leaves, and whatever else I want, and then she will help put it all together. That is such a blessing for me. I can concentrate on everything else now. My fiance and me will be sitting down this week and next getting the guest list together. My side of the list is almost complete, but his is not. Once that is finished then it is time for the invites to be printed. I cannot wait; I think it is going to be so much fun doing all this work.
Well, I was hoping I would be done planning by now. I am not done though. I still have much to do and time is ticking away. At this point in the checklist that I told about earlier in other posts, a wedding registry needs to be done. I have come up with a list to help me decide what I want to put on the registry, but we just need to decide what store we will register at. I think Bed, Bath, and Beyond would be a good place because I know that it is every state that our families live in. That way they do not have to go far to find gifts for us. The good thing about going to this place to register is the fact that you can look up the registry online and also shop online for the gifts. I like the aspect and I think it would help with those family members who do not live around this area.
I guess for now I am just waiting to hear back from people to know what to do next. We have talked to some photographers about their pictures, but some of the prices were a little steep and some fairly cheap. Now, we are just waiting to see what happens with one more photographer we will meet with next week. After that we will make the decision I guess. It is so hard to choose. I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. One is a friend of mine and one is a friend of my fiance’s. Neither one of us want them to get mad at us if we decide to not go with one of them. I am sure everything will work out in the end.
Well for now I am going to a break from planning. This is only to let myself come up with more ideas. I know that I will get more ideas if I just take a break and refresh myself. I have made many decisions so far. I just need to make sure that everything is going the way I want it to. I need to make the save-the-date cards to send out as soon as possible. That in itself just takes time. Once those are done and sent out I will be able to make the actual invitations for the wedding. I have decided to make those myself as well. I have already started, I just need to print them. It takes a while to print them and I need to make sure that I have enough ink for printer to do that.
Well, I am kind of stuck now. I finally got the estimate back from the florist at Martins and they were definitely higher then what I expected. So, now I do not know what to do. I was told by friends that they were so cheap and they do a good job. When I got the estimate back, it was about two to three hundred dollars more then I thought. I guess I am going to have to go back to the beginning and look again. I am still making the arrangements for the reception, but I really want real flowers for the the bridesmaids and me.
