The end stretch…

Wow, we’re getting close now. Only about 17 days until the wedding. My mom arrives on Saturday to begin the final prep. I can’t believe how quickly it’s all come up. But things are really starting to fall into place now. I made the final payment for the ceremony/reception site, cake payment went out last week, flower payment is due on Thursday, and the catering headcount is due the Monday after that!

RSVPs have been rolling in & I’m pretty sure we’ve gotten almost everyone’s. Looks like the final guest count will be around 52. Thanks to everyone who RSVP’d. It’s been a lot of fun opening them up to see who sent theirs back and what music selections they included.

We’ve also been receiving a lot of gifts lately. Thank you to everyone who has already sent something. We are having a lot of fun putting things to use already: new plates, pans, serving bowls, coffee machine, toaster, etc. etc. I’m already running out of room in the kitchen for all these goodies! Formal thank you notes will go out after the wedding.

I also finalized the ceremony wording last week. It’ll be short, but sweet, I think. It feels good to have something that important out of the way, I must admit.

I’ve also made a few last minute purchases for the wedding. I finally got Andy’s ring ordered:

It should be arriving soon. There’s a small delay because it’s handmade.

I also bought Alex and I a few hair accessories for the wedding:

I know how quickly the next few weeks are going to go by, but hopefully I’ll get a chance to update as things progress & we get closer and closer. I can’t wait to see everyone soon!

suiting up.

Andy’s picked a suit! Horray! The other half of the couple shall be dressed. (We’re still working on the bride’s maid & groom’s man. They very well may be naked.)

But I’m still too excited about this suit to be too worried right now – I really like it:

He even got the vest (which I believe makes it match point & win for team Vest):

What I think we both like about this suit is that it has a more modern feel, and it’s made out of cotton, so Andy shall not suffocate in the 100% humidity that is Wilmington in July. Plus, this gray is going to look super fabulous with his purple tie and deep purple calla lily boutonniere, which I imagine will look a little like this:

But our’s will have a little purple orchid accent to match my bouquet as well.

I think we might be getting somewhere with this wedding planning nonsense. Goals for this week – pick a baker and meet with the caters & rental people. If I can accomplish that, then I think most of the big stuff will be out of the way. Besides figuring out what the other people in the wedding party are going to wear… I think right now I’m going for those goofy beach t-shirts that are really long and have the drawing of a well-endowed gal in a bikini and a really hairy guy. It’ll make sure Andy & I are the best looking people up there.
