Continuing the theme from last week, I'm happy to report that things are going along swimmingly! Our first wedding shower is booked (yay! - Thanks Mom!) and our second is ironing out dates, as well. On Friday, I purchased my rings (yes, plural!). Once they arrive, and I'm sure I like them, I'll post pictures and more information. We also picked out Tom's ring, and need to verify his ring size and decide on engraving before we order it.
On Saturday, on a happenstance outing to the local mall with my mother, I found the exact pair of shoes I'd been in love with, since seeing them make the rounds on other blogs. I'm working on finding a picture. I'll probably just end up taking a lovely picture for you all...
Being the slacker that I am, I just actually signed the contracts for the florist and linen specialist, and will mail those this week. I also bought the ribbon for the wands, and am waiting for the dowel rods to go on sale before I pick them up.
Yesterday, while my nieces were over and my sister was in a black dress, we took the opportunity to try on our wedding wear. It was sooo exciting to see "the vision" together for the first time. It's just so crazy to think that the planning portion of this is over, and the actual "doing" portion is here.
As of today, we are officially 5 months away from the wedding! I have a feeling that the next few months are going to fly by! This month, I hope to start printing the invitations and other stationery (that's right, it's finally Gocco time!). April should give us a bit of a break. Tom and I will be moving mid-May, so the end of April/beginning of May should be a flurry of packing, cleaning, painting and unpacking, and then we go right into our first shower (which means I need to get cracking on designing and printing thank-you's, too). Our newest niece will be born in May, Tom has outdoor Nationals, finals and then a week-long trip to Colorado, and we'll have a variety of family functions and graduations to top it all off. June and July aren't much better, and then before you know it, the wedding will be here!
