96 more days….

21 03 2011

The fact that there is now less than a 100 days left until our wedding scares me how fast it is going to go by!I have been getting things done left and right so it does feel good to cross things off the list. 😉

Saturday after shopping I came home jumped into some warm jammies and started working on the invitations. I got all of the paper cut out, printed, stamped, and put together! PHEW! Took me 2 1/2 hours but feels good that now I can send those suckers out! Also, I got all of the addresses I  needed!

100+ pieces of paper all cut out and ready to be printed!

Today I started working on little signs or labels you could call them for drinks and the reserved table.

I am planning on punching holes in the two top corners and string some ribbon in the holes! 🙂

I made this with old scrabble pieces and had seen this on someones wedding blog when the planning first began!

I made up this little saying to go next to it also with pieces of paper 🙂

We also made a down payment on our honeymoon! That means everything is booked and I am so ready to go! 🙂 Thats about it! Planning on sending out invitations by Friday! Have a wonderful day and rock on! 🙂

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.


8 03 2011

So I just finished up addressing 100+ envelopes and it wasn’t anywhere as bad as I thought it would be. The kids I babysit were napping so I put on the tunes and started writing. Got all of them (except 10, I still need their addresses) done. I also made two piles, one that I would send out in the mail and two ones I will just hand out. I figured to help with the cost of stamps with our friends and close family we will just give them their invitations straight from the source! 😉

Things are really starting to come together! One not so good thing, we have not been able to get in touch with our travel agency, were not sure if its her phone or if she just isn’t around! If we don’t get in touch with her by this weekend were going to go on www.expedia.com and try to do it ourselves. Yikes! So be praying she answers! 🙂 Later gator!
