We’re meeting with our priest next week (at the one month mark!). One thing I failed to do was obtain my Baptism, Communion and Confirmation records :-) Thankfully, it took just 2 phone calls this morning to those parishes and they’re already in the mail. I was worried about obtaining my Communion and Confirmation records because my church closed last year and merged with another, but they found them without a problem.
So…Remember to obtain your records at least a month to 6 weeks in advance of your wedding day if you’re marrying outside of your parish.
Also on the agenda for next week:
-Meet with our DJ to work out details
-Obtain our marriage license from our city’s town hall
-Likely moving into our house! We have 4/28 and 4/29 off together from work (a blessing since we work opposite shifts right now)
-His Bachelor Party is Saturday night 4/30…which is awesome – I’ll get to organize at our house! (at least that’s the plan).
-Figure out my centerpiece situation – I wanted to do manzanita centerpieces and instead of buying them, I could utilize branches from our dogwood trees…well, I think they look scary.
So, I abandoned that idea. Then my florist suggested crystal chandelier centerpieces as she has a few. While browsing for crystal stuff, I found these gorgeous branches from Save-On-Crafts.com for $17 each. I ordered one to see what it looks like…we may use these on 6 tables flanking the dance floor and again in the foyer outside the ballroom. If I hate these, we’re going the crystal route!
-Part of the bridesmaids’ gifts came in last week! Can’t wait to post about these after the wedding…working on that scheduled post ;-) (Will post on 5/29). I have to get gift boxes and cards too.
-One groomsmen has yet to get his fitting, and I found out last night their tuxes don’t come with socks…fret not, because that means we can buy them some fun socks ;-)
Both from Express…Buy any 4 for $25! That’s a good buy.
Which would you go with? They’re wearing all black (vest/tie/tux). The gray version’s blue matches the girls better, but honestly, they aren’t going to be seen in the same photo together.
Am I asking for trouble giving these guys colorful socks? I want cute pictures!
-Design placecards and table numbers
Jasmine’s blog inspired me for table numbers!
-Waiting on more RSVP’s….
-Second makeup trial sometime soon!
-Buy 2 bathing suits for honeymoon (I already have a bunch from last year’s cruise)…corral my summer clothing and see what I might need to buy (if anything).
