Wedding Things IX: Starting up again

Today, June 13th, marks 3 months until our wedding day! It's so exciting!!!

I haven't written a wedding post in a few months because there really hasn't been much going on. We got such a head start on planning our wedding, that the last few months, we've really just focused on being normal, enjoying The Pilot's weekends off, and not thinking about the wedding every day. It's been great!

Now that we're 3 months out though, things are picking up again. The biggest thing on our plate has been the invitations. My sister, Tatiana, has been designing them and they're just about done. I'll send them to the printer on Monday and we have some supplies due to arrive next week and then, the assembly begins!

I can't wait to show post our invitations! They have turned out so perfectly! I'm not really a by-the-book kind of girl, so we're sending them out early...in about 2 weeks actually. I'm hoping that we get a better sense of our numbers by sending them out early on but I know the horror stories associated with wedding RSVPs, so we'll see!

Also, the bridesmaid dresses came in! We ordered them through Weddington Way (full review coming soon) and they actually arrived a month earlier than they were supposed to! I had to change my Junior Bridesmaid dresses a little bit late in the game so we ordered those through WW, but they haven't come in yet. All of the girls dresses fit them perfectly, and they look great!

As for my wedding dress? It's almost done! I should have one or two more fittings before it's ready to be packed away until September! I can't wait to see it when it's all done! I think that when I finally put on my wedding dress, it'll start to feel so real!

I'm also really excited that we were able to hire a videographer. It's something we were both really against for awhile (we've seen some awful wedding videos), but after seeing some that our friends had posted, I started to really want one. We were able to find someone who happens to go to our church who gave us a great deal on a package and was really flexible with our budget, so I'm really happy about that!

In other exciting news, we booked our honeymoon!!! For the time being, I'm keeping it a surprise where we're going, but I can't wait! I wanted to go some place we've never been before and that's exactly what we're doing.

So, that's where we're at with three months to go! On the agenda in the next few weeks:

  • Print, assemble and send out invitations
  • Finish designing programs and have them printed
  • DIY Centerpieces
  • Favors
  • Guest book
  • Finalize the menu at our tasting
We'll be busy, but I'd rather be busy now and spend the last month before our wedding soaking up the sun at our pool! 

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

  1. The wedding train is steam rolling right along! It's all warp speed from here on out! Enjoy it all! I think it's smart to get the invites out--I thought you're supposed to send them out at the 3 month mark? That's what I did (you'll still have some stragglers tho...).
    So glad you got the videographer! It's worth it. I jsut got my highlight video this week and I've watched it a gazillion times already haha

  2. So many fun things happening!!! I don't see a problem with sending out the invites now--especially with people who may be traveling, it will give them time to make sure they are setting that weekend aside for a fun little trip! And I think videographers are awesome--so cool to have that memory! I can't WAIT to see your dress come together!!
