a post from my berry.

So I have been trying to figure out how to post from my blackberry and I just did! Yahoo! So I am trying to figure out a few wedding details and want some in on some ideas or what you might have done :).

Transportation: all my bridesmaids and me will be getting ready at the ceremony site so I have been thinking on how will I get everyone (wedding party) from the ceremony site to the reception. What did you do if your ceremony and reception were at 2 different places? Is it worth renting a limo?

Seating Chart: Okay, so I have seen some adorable pictures of seating charts but I only need names for the immediate family tables. There are going to be like 6 round tables for immediate family and then the rest long rectangular tables for everyone else to sit where ever the would like! 🙂 So I’m trying to think of a creative way to have the immediate family tables numbered or with place cards. 🙂

Alrighty now is the time when you all hit the “comment” button and give me some ideas! 🙂 Love you all!

Things are looking so far up! My last blog I was telling you about how we needed to find somewhere else to have our ceremony. Cathedral of the Pines was one of our first options ($1200 for 2 hours) and we weren’t sure if they would be available for our wedding date. BUT Collin had got in touch with a very wonderful lady who lives in town, to ask if we could get married there. Last summer 2 people got married there and it was so gorgeous! It’s a beautiful field. So, Collin ran into her yesterday and she was beyond excited and said YES! 🙂 Phew, hey?

The news kept on getting better and better throughout the day. Collin called back and said he had talked to Molly (our travel agent) and she was getting us all hooked up with our honeymoon travels! As of right now we are planning on going to the Bahamas and staying at the Riu Palace Paradise Island. It is an all-inclusive hotel and is right next to Atlantis which is a beautiful hotel but not all-inclusive and is actually very pricey for food. You can get day passes to Atlantis to go check it out, hit the water park and all that fun stuff!

Pools & gardens

Then, like I said I was meeting with the person making my cake, and it went awesome! We are going to have a small 2 tier cake and then have cupcakes for everyone. She is going to be making us some samples to try out! 🙂 She really understood what I wanted and helped me figure what would work best and so on! So today is totally different from yesterday morning! Can’t wait to be sitting in the white sand and gazing into the blue waters! 😉 God is so good!

Good news & bad news.

So last night Collin called me and said ” I have good news and bad news, which do you want first?” So here it goes and as I remember there really wasn’t much good news…The place we thought we were going to have our ceremony (apple orchard) is out of the picture, for insurance reasons & the fact they will be spraying the apple trees around that time so we can not get married up there. So we are back to square 1 but with my trust in the Lord, I am confident that He has an awesome spot picked out for us! 🙂 Collin had gotten in touch with Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge, NH & left a message so were hoping they are available for our wedding date! It is beautiful up there but a tad bit pricey for 2 hours.

Some good news, last night we picked out the tux and Collin got fitted at Men’s Warehouse so that was something else to check off the list. We also got in touch with our travel agent! Yaahoo, today was the day if we didn’t get in touch we were going to try to book everything ourselves! Tonight I am meeting with the lady who will be making out cake, so that too is exciting!

I am trying to keep my head up and not get stressed out or worried because I KNOW we will have a beautiful wedding and everything will work out. Also, be praying for Japan, Hawaii, & the West Coast for protection. Enjoy this rainy day as much as you can.

one thousand.

I am VERY happy to say that my blog has gotten over 1,000 views! Sometimes I wonder who would even want to read about me and my doings, but you guys really do! Aw, love you too! 🙂 Okay so we are working on the songs to play during the ceremony and reception. I would love the suggestions! For the ceremony we have 2 songs picked out so far, not sure if that’s going to be it or what but I love them! I could listen to them over and over again and they give me butterflies and I start feeling nervous. (like im about to walk down the aisle or something!) For the reception we need some suggestions on some dance music, nothing too “rappy” or with “rough lyrics” kids will be at our wedding, and I could care less about that sort of music. So fill me in people, and whats some music that would make you break it down?
