Wedding update

Days into engagement: 181

Days until the wedding: 108

Since I last posted, we've accomplished the following:
  • finalized our cocktail hour and reception menus
  • picked up my wedding dress, veil, and an accessory (!!!!)
  • met with a florist and chose (potential) flowers for all aspects of our wedding
  • tasted and decided on a cake (still have to choose how it will look, though)
  • booked a DJ for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception
  • planned my bridal shower (well, my MOH did this :))
  • decided how our reception tables will look (how our napkins will be folded, what our table numbers will look like, etc.)
  • worked out various details with our venue (where place cards/a gift table/the guest book will go, how the room will be set up, etc.)
  • decided on our wedding favors
  • met with a local calligrapher to talk about options for making our invitation envelopes pretty
  • picked the date of Fiance's bachelor party
  • submitted a wedding announcement to a local publication
  • changed our wedding colors (surprise!)
  • booked a rehearsal dinner site (Fiance's parents took care of this)
  • reserved space at our venue for our wedding rehearsal
  • decided we're going to do a first look
  • sent in the contract and deposit for our officiant
Almost all of the big things for our wedding are done! Basically, all that's left to figure out are the little details that I choose to care about. It's been stressful trying to get everything done, but luckily I have an amazing support system of family, bridesmaids, and friends to help me out. And I couldn't do anything without Fiance. His forehead kisses, reassurance that I can't mess anything up, and his hand on my back guiding me through everything are the perfect reminders of why all of this is so worth it.

In other news, I miss writing. I'm looking forward to having more time to devote to this beloved blog of mine in the near(ish) future.

Oh my gosh, so much to do! Did you find any good apps or anything that helped you organize your planning? I downloaded The Knot app onto my phone, but it seems to be a pretty general to-do list broken down by month (which is great!) but doesn't offer many details (which is not so good, because I have no idea what I'm doing haha).

Glad we could reconnect today! :)
