Do you even recognize me?

I checked off three more things off my wedding list.

I did indeedy.

Thanks to my future mother-in-law, the rehearsal dinner venue has been booked. I’m really excited because we found a place that combines all the things I was looking for: ambiance, not stuffy, good location, great food, good price, layed back, locally owned, can bring our own wine and a place where we can just have fun.

Cupini’s in Westport.

They have a new private banquet room where we can get a little rowdy.

And then the fiance can go get his drink on with his guys in Westport. (But if he has a hangover on our wedding day, I will kill him… love you, babe. 🙂 )

Also, I booked an appointment with a florist for Tuesday.

And I have NO idea what to do with flowers.

Luckily, my florist is a pro at this sort of thing and will help guide me through it.

And finally, I ordered my veil on etsy. It will be custom made by Paper & Silk. She’s going to do the bird cage similar to the veil in this project, but the ends of the veil will be finished, and the flower will be smaller and simple – just white with some pearls in the middle. If you haven’t tried the Alchemy feature on www.etsy.com, you really should. I just put in a request for my veil with some details as to what I was looking for and set a maximum price (mine was $30.) and I had 10 crafters offer to make it.

Of course, then the hard part was picking from all those fantastic offers, but I really like the angle and style of the veil Paper & Silk showed me. I’ll keep you posted on the progress of the veil.

I was feeling so proud of myself for getting all of these things accomplished this week, that I sent out a tweet about how awesome I am at planning my wedding and when did I get so organized. My friend, @msrib reminded me that it is probably because my wedding date is melting closer and closer.

Ok, fine. She’s probably right. I’ve always been a procrastinator….why stop now?

I’m addicted to looking at these. I have images of my hair back at the nape of my neck with one pinned to the side.

But even though I’m totally anti-veil, I think these are just the world’s cutest thing ever. Question: do you keep it on the entire wedding day, or do you pull the netting off after the ceremony?
