TICK TOCK

Ugh, sorry guys it’s another post about my upcoming wedding. I know, SO ANNOYING! I purposely have not been keeping track of how many days away the wedding is. But we’ve passed the two month mark. That’s even scarier than finding out Lena Dunham is going to be on season 7 of AHS! Anyway, I managed to lock down a photographer. So the photographer crisis for 2017 is over. I even negotiated a sweet deal! I went with the photographer that is a preferred vendor for our venue. It turns out they’ve also done 2 of my friends weddings. So I already know they are good. Bonus, they have a pretty quick turn-around after the wedding. 

But the downside is we got the quote back for my wedding ring, and it’s definitely more than we were anticipating. We don’t have much choice though, so you win some and you lose some. I also had my second dress fitting this weekend and it went well. She just has to do the bustle part, then I think we’re about done (I HOPE).  

Much to my relief, it looks like we won’t be over the capacity of the ballroom we booked, even if the remaining people all say “yes” (which I hope they don’t).  I already know most of my relatives in Europe won’t make it, but I still need a firm answer. We’re missing slightly less than 50% response cards right now, and we’re about 3 weeks out until we need the final count. So people still have time reply. According the bride group I’m in, people not responding at all is pretty common and also RUDE. So as kind reminder, be sure to always send your RSVP cards back for weddings or parties. Don’t be a jerk! 

My friend helped me put my wedding stickers onto the light saber favors I got for the wedding. They have six different light modes to choose. So guests can be “dark side” or “light side”. I will be picking the rainbow mode, not sure what side that is? I just hope I don’t need to buy extra, but that all depends on the final count. Ok, that is enough wedding talk for now. My eye is starting to twitch. I don’t know why people enjoy wedding planning, it’s about as fun as slamming your face into a wall of nails. I’ll be sure to post my weekend recap soon, I did do some non-wedding stuff I swear!

  1. I don’t think I really understood how important sending back RSVPs was until I got married. And now? I’m the quickest. I send it back right away because I know myself well enough to know that I’ll forget about it if I don’t send it right away and I don’t want to be that person who didn’t respond.
