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.
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?
