Updates

Hello,

A lot of you (ok three of you) have wondered what’s been going on with my wedding blog and for that matter, my wedding plans.

Well, I’ve still been wedding blogging, just not here. See, every week I have this writing gig over at www.tweetmywedding.blogspot.com and it’s kind of all that I’ve had time to keep up with, what with the mother ship and all.  I know you might not want to go dig through a bunch of old posts over there, so I’ll make it easy for you. Here are some summaries:

September 15– I start thinking about winter weight gain as it relates to a February wedding.

September 29 – I discuss my recent trip to Blogher Food and an encounter with the author of 52 Fights: A Newlywed’s Confession. I also promise a full review of the book, which I’m actually still reading. I’m getting close to the end so hold tight.

October 6: I talk about Molly’s wedding and try to describe the centerpieces, which I later learned contained lovely green hedge apples. A unique fruit that made a dazzling presentation. Picture!

October 13: I discuss the JK Wedding March as spoofed in The Office Wedding episode. And I pose the question: Pro entrance funky dance or anti?

October 20: I admit that I’ve been somewhat lax in my wedding plans, but that we did meet with the pastor, and I made my wedding hair appointment. Honestly, it was a pretty lame post. I was in a wedding rut, what can I say?

October 27: I discuss bridal stereotypes and share how my lack of traditional brideyness was a turn-off to a Helzberg sales lady.

November 3: I recap the Perfect Wedding bridal show I attended with my amazing photographer, Aaron Newell of Blue Rue Studio and offer tips to other brides thinking of attending a large bridal show.

November 10: For brides, we sure do have committment issues. Mine involve my shoes. This post is all things shoes…including a link to the wedding shoes I hope to buy after Christmas!

 November 17:  Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue…. I found my something old. It’s a beautiful broach to wear on my dress. Pictures!

November 24: Bridesmaid shopping by numbers, including links to all the dresses my Team Quirky members picked.

Today: More about winter weight gain, specifically the holidays.

So there you have it. You are all caught up on my wedding plans. But don’t go anywhere!

We still have:

  • To put the final touches on the invites
  • To buy the veil (birdcage style)
  • Alterations to the dress (suck it in, baby!)
  • To purchase the beautiful red suede Gabrielle Rocha shoes
  • To meet the photographer
  • To meet the caterer
  • To meet the invite designer
  • Taste the cake with my future mother-in-law
  • A quirky bachelorette party (There has been talk of roller derby!)
  • Pre-wedding counseling with the pastor
  • Discuss music
  • Dress the groomsmen
  • And holy crap, FLOWERS. I really need to get on that.

Lots to say, lots to do. Stay tuned.

Now we are cooking

The fiance and I started talking about this wedding of ours last night. Oy vey.

Here’s the goal – less thank $10K for 250 -300 people. I think it’s doable, but our first plan of action is we need a venue that will allow us to bring in our own caterer. Then we need the caterer. We are talking heavy hors d’oeuvres.

What I’d really like to find is some undeveloped loft space in KC that someone really wants to pimp out by having 250 -300 people visiting it. We are open to Friday and Sunday weddings and the winter is also a possibility.

So this week we are going to tackle the ever fun guest list to get a better idea of what our count really might be.

Our problem is we just like people so darned much. 🙂 We like to party. Yes we like to party.

Coming soon: I announce the wedding party. (But we have to tell them first. Also, there’s one member of my team who doesn’t even know I’m engaged. tee hee.)

Question of the day: for wedding hors d’oeuvres, what do you like to eat?
