Six Months To Go = Crunch Time Begins

Hey guys!! I had a fun, family-filled Christmas and New Years and I hope all of you did, too!! Now, it’s time to buckle down and get all the wedding details, that I’ve put to the side over the past month, checked off my list!

You may have heard, one day while I was in the studio, Brian Mo and I were talking about my Save the Date fiasco. It’s funny, really. I ordered them online using my own design and it said they’d be delivered in two weeks. Perfect! Because I was planning on getting them sent out the first week of January. So, while I was in the studio, my fiance, Tim, text me and said they came in the mail. I was soooo excited! Until…he sent me a picture and it was the William’s Family Christmas card. Adorable picture, but not mine! So, I called the company and they quickly sent me the correct save the dates! Yay!!

I am trying to stay up with my wedding check-list, but I just feel like i’m either behind or other people that are getting married next year are way overachievers!

Important things that I still need to do: find invitations and get those ordered, find a videographer that isn’t crazy expensive!! $3,000 just isn’t in the budget :/  Also, I need to meet with the florist from the church that we are getting married at and another florist that will do all the other wedding flowers for the reception. And then the cake….tastings are so much fun, but I need to get that figured out, too! Luckily, my wedding planner, Jill is helping to keep me focused.

BUT, I do have two very exciting things coming up this month! I got a text from J.J. at TLC Bridal Boutique in Downtown Frederick and she told me my wedding gown will be in next week! eek!! I can’t wait to see it and try it on again. That also means, that we can look at matching veils and order that. I also have my eye on a gorgeous hair clip that I’m hoping to get when i’m back in the store.

Later this month, we are having the party for Tim’s groomsmen. They will be coming over to the house for their M. Stein Tuxedo fitting and I thought, why not make a party out of it and invite everyone’s other half, too! That will be fun to see all the guys in the suits that we’ve picked out and get an idea of the big picture! Especially, how handsome Tim will look!!

Oh, and we got our registries started at Macy’s and Crate& Barrel. I can’t wait to pick out some cute things 🙂

I can’t believe we are only 6 months out! Wedding diet has begun (and new year’s resolution) and I am ready to kick this weddings plannings butt! (in a good way) 🙂
