Sometimes, planning a wedding feels an awful lot like what I’d imagine it to feel like to walk through a field with landmines between the starting and ending point of a shooting range. All the while, I’m hoping to make it to the other side of the field without exploding or being hit with stray bullets.
If I misstep, things could end in a terrible mess.
If I’m not watching carefully while I step, something else will come out of no where and things will get messy for a long long time.
For those of you just starting this endeavor: beware. Wedding planning is a chance to offend others without fail.
In three weeks, I will wake up as a married woman! Wahoo!
I’ve gotten a lot done. Yet, there are many more hours to spend planning and projecting.
Programs are officially DONE!
Menus are printed and the massive folding project will begin after I trim the excess paper from them.
I’ll pick up my hemmed and bustled dress tomorrow.
Parent gifts are purchased.
Things to do (both small and large):
- Wrap groomsmen’s gifts
- Wrap parent gifts
- Organize bridesmaids gifts
- Call the florist and meet to change the order just a bit
- Call the baker to finalize decorations and drop off ribbon and invitation page
- Finalize helpers to decorate the reception tables (confetti, menus, pictures)
- Finalize RSVPs and make table charts
- Purchase wedding night lingerie
- Finalize church decorations
- Put together the the cord of three strands
- I’m sure I’m forgetting something right now. :)
So stinkin’ excited!
Yesterday, I was fairly productive.
I bought the paper at Hobby Lobby that I’ll use to make the ceremony programs. My budget for programs is $50 and I managed to spend about $25 on paper. Assuming my printer doesn’t run out of ink and ribbon doesn’t cost too much, I’ll come out way under budget. I’m looking forward to getting the programs done so I can print them. The time at Hobby Lobby was interesting. The paper was ruined by the paper shelves at the store, so I got a worker (Nicholas) to help me. He was a major help. I ordered the paper from the warehouse for 50% off (that’s the sale, this week). I should be able to pick them up on Saturday or Monday. Woot!
I also bought the ring we’ll use to attach the three strands for the braiding of the cord of three strands. I’ll be putting that together soon and attaching a rubber band to it so that I have it on the wedding day.
Then, I went to Staples to get pricing on printing projects.
- I may get the menus printed there because they have cardstock that is the right color for $0.16 a sheet. If I get about 220 of them, I’d be about $20 under budget on menus, too!
- I also priced a poster printing–a 24X36 poster–for the seating chart at the reception. I really don’t want to spend that much. I can do a color printout for $41.99 and have it mounted on foam board for a total of $83. Then, I found out that a black and white poster printout is $2.99. Maybe I’ll redesign the poster so that it’s black and white; I could do that without losing the formality of it, probably. So, I need to decide what I want to do here.
Tonight’s plan: bridesmaid’s gift errand, list of people to invite to my next wedding shower sent to my matron of honor, house cleaning and packing.
