What a wonderful night!

This evening after work was spent with Kelli and Josh (the maid of honor and best man). We went to a "Cocktails and Questions" or something like that even at Receptions in Eastgate. It was actually fun. I was worried it would be super lame, but we ended up having fun!

And what did we do?

  • We got to eat some cheese and fruit! 
  • Had a signature cocktail (it was more like a screwdriver that they tried to spruce up). 
  • Ate some cupcakes and cakepops (oh I wish I had photos of those to show you how tasty)! But it was done by our specific cake baker and I'm glad Kelli and Josh loved her cakes!
  • Met a very expensive/aggressive photographer.
  • Saw some cute paper products that I wanted to share with fellow bride Melanie (some I might try to DIY for my own wedding)
  • Played in a photobooth
  • Listened to a dj I didn't care much for (ours will be much better)!
  • Fell in love with some jewelery from Stella & Dot
  • And am considering seriously having an Over the Wine Party. Oh, it seems really fun! And who would be interested in joining?! Someone please say yes so we can do this! 

It turned out to really be great! I know it sounds like a waste of time to those of you not interested in wedding planning, but it was a nice time out with the maid of honor and best man! Unfortunately, we didn't win any prizes though! I had hoped at least one of us would win something, but thats ok! We got some great pictures from the night though! 

And to finish the night off, Iggy, Josh, Travis, and Matt are all seeing The Hangover 2 right now. I hope they are laughing their butts off because I'm dying to see it. :) Plus this weekend has to be great, I have a 4 day weekend and am spending tomorrow with the bff (CAN NOT WAIT)!  And then have my birthday Saturday night! Woohoo! For those of you who actually read this and will be at the birthday event, I'm wearing a summer dress. Please feel free to dress in a summery dress and be prepared for my pirate party! Oh yay!

*Edit to this post*

Josh is called the best man as his title in the wedding. At the Receptions event tonight, he held up that title and did a great job at it. But...not now. Some best man. :( Wouldn't take a photo of the guys at the movies so I could blog about it (not like he even knew I would have or that I even have this blog)! So why didn't he take the picture? Because he is the anti-bestman. Yep. He is. What a sad night it has turned in to.

Hopefully we will be busy bees tonight!

I will be spending quite sometime tonight emailing the Dj of our list of play & not play song since I have put it off for such a long time. I'm more concerned about this now since we are meeting with him again June 1st. And were supposed to have gotten this list to him awhile ago! Oops!

And then I will be working on making a plan boring drab ring bearers pillow (thank you kelli) into something more unique and colorful!

And I have already started to revamp the basket our wedding programs will be going in. I just need to finish it tonight.

Like I said, lots of work!

<3ing my bridesmaids!

Tonight was so wonderful! Andrea, Kelli, and I went to see bridesmaids! First of all, it was a wonderful movie! I laughed very hard at some parts and it was sweet in the end. Parts of it reminded me of the fights that my sister and I have had. It's really worth seeing, even more if you're getting married this soon!

While at the movies, Iggy was the babysitter for the 3 boys! Apparently, they all had fun and enjoyed some guy time!

Now the wedding movie has me in full planning mode! Paying off flowers tonight! Hoping they will be shipped soon and will be able to start making some bouquets! I worked on updating guests lists and budgets and other items at work and felt like I had gotten a great start towards the planning for tonight! Sure hope iggy is in the mood!

Songs for the wedding. Oh my.

So we have picked our songs for the wedding party to come out to at the reception and then changed our mind just now.

But what would some people at the wedding think if the song was a tiny bit offensive? We don't think it's offensive, but maybe a few people would think so. And the edited version isn't quite as wonderful.

Just so many decisions. Haha.

Im not quite sure how serious this entire post was. I'm feeling just a bit off today. Hmmm.

But we are on our way to go see "something borrowed" so that's sort of wedding related, right?! And then finishing up some payments. So I think I'm being productive today.

Blogging outside of work in wonderful weather!

So I could have stayed at my desk and updated some addresses on the guest list or sent some emails to a couple of vendors to confirm some payments, but I'd rather blog and spend the time alone outside. So if you work with me and see me sitting on the steps at the entrance, this is what I am doing.

See, that's me, outside of work.

I am going to start emailing the Dj tonight on our must play and do not play list! And start to finalize the songs we want played during dinner. I am so excited about our music choices so far. The songs we have selected are truly showing who we are and we are not doing anything that is ordinary.

And this Friday I will be seeing Bridesmaids in theaters with my maid of honor Kelli and one of the bridesmaids Andrea! I am so looking forward to that night!

Now if only I could make a list of wedding things that needed to be completed and give it to iggy to handle!

Its been so long since my last post!

I guess the reason for that is because we haven't done too much planning. We have paid off the Dj, church and minister, flowers, all bridesmaids gifts, parts of the groomsmen gifts, part of iggys wedding day present, almost half way done on the reception hall! And sending in two final vendors tomorrow and making another large payment on the reception hall!

We did decide on a few more detailed items! Songs that will be played at the ceremony, a couple of important and special ceremony things to be done, and a but 1 important song for the reception! I've helped address the bridal shower invites for fmil since she said her handwriting is awful! Lol.

And completely finished our registry. Oh thank god. I've done my best to not registry snoop, but it got the best of me and I did. I know most brides do, so it's ok for now. I promise to stop snooping at the end of this month. As hard as that may be, I will quit. Oh gosh! Help me!

I think that's all we have done so far. At least I can think of for now. Ahhhhh!

I know we have tons more to do! I need to work on programs
