Wedding Checklist

by - July 10, 2012

We're less than 3 months away from the big day. So what does that mean?

When I'm not working or sleeping, I'm working on my wedding checklist.

We've gotten a lot of stuff done, but there are still some big ticket items left to mark off. Fortunately, my fiance has been involved in almost every aspect of the planning and both of our parents are lending a hand.
We finally settled on a cake design. We're going to combine elements of these three to create a unique cake that fits our theme and my personality.

 We're going to use the basket weave design for the top layer. No flowers though.

 We're going to use the monogrammed letter for the middle letter. It's going to be a bronze-brown color to go with our rustic theme.
This is the cake that inspired it all. We're going to use the bottom layer as is, except with our colors - teal and orange. We'll keep the rick-rack on the middle layer - just changing the color once again - and add the monogrammed letter. The top will be replaced with a plain basket weave.

My dress came back from alterations last week. It fits perfectly, which means I can't gain or lose any weight. We left it at the dress shop though just in case. I'll go back next month for one more try-on to make sure no adjustments need to be made. While we were there, we picked out the tuxes for the groomsmen.

Our venue has been paid off. We'll be setting up the catering this week. Flowers have been decided on, just not ordered, and we're working on the music. We're also getting on top of our invitations - they go out in a couple of weeks.
So between all the final preparations and easing into my new role at work, I've been pretty busy. Once things settle down, I'll be able to blog more regularly. Until then, stay cool my friends.
