Whew! Catching up on Wedding to-dos

This post originally appeared in my private blog on March 2, 2009....




Today's snow day was the perfect excuse to get caught up on wedding stuff.

Me:

  • two new photo albums up on wedding website
  • set up DJ info on their website and started a do and do-not play list
  • set up info on our website for guests to pick songs for DJ to play
With the help of my mother and grandmother:
  • tried on 3 more wedding dresses
  • ordered my original favorite along with the veil
  • set up order info for the bridesmaids to order their dresses
  • picked out a super cute possible MOB dress for mom
  • picked out and ordered an awesome dress for me to wear to the 7 other weddings I am going to between now and my own
  • went to the flower market to find colors and flowers to recommend to the florist
  • bought 2 dozen vases/candle holders for the reception table decor
  • bought ribbon for bridesmaids bouquet
With the help of my fiance:
  • Reviewed our favorites at Macy's and Crate & Barrel for our main registries
  • Checked into Pottery Barn and William Sonoma, made mental list (aka took pictures) of small registry items there
  • Began our registry at Macy's, which now includes: china, knives, pots/pans, bake ware
  • Nearly finalized our everyday dishes, flatware, and oddball kitchen pieces
  • Reviewed all choices and potential choices with parents, and received great feedback!
I'm a little ready for bed.


PS Eric and I strongly recommend taking a camera or camera phone with you every time you go shopping. We've taken pictures of all the random stuff we say, "we should register for that" or "I really like this pattern". Today I pulled out the camera, we reviewed our favorites in person and it saved us SOOO much time. No need to sift through all the items we already vetoed!
