Luncheon Fun

I had the bridal luncheon yesterday with my peeps. It was so nice, they had gotten me a crown with a veil attached (haha) I was a funny sight. And also a button that said bride to be that flashes. My mom ended up coming as well which made it even more fun. We had pizza and brownies and lots of girl talk of course. It ended up being decided that the last weekend in March will be the linguire shower as well as bachelorette. Since all the same girls are going to be invited to both we will have the shower during the day then everyone go out to dinner and then out on the town for the bachelorette fun :o)

We also got our cake topper. We custom ordered it online and it only took a day or two to get here!

Also in other news I got Jason to go get fitted for his tux as well as pick one out. So now he and the best man have been fitted and a tux has been decided upon.

Alot of stuff has actually gotten accomplished this week which I am super excited about.

We decided up on not having a rehearsal or rehearsal dinner as there is to much family drama for that to happen. Also decided upon no grooms cake as Jason doesn't really care and we will have more than enough wedding cake.

Found out the bridesmaids dresses will be in on March 26th which is cutting it close but not to bad as Mandi will be coming back down that weekend anyway for the shower and party.

Well just wanted to sit down and write an update on this wedding adventure....

Hi All,
So I didn't actually get the deer kit yet but my mom told me they have them at Dick's Sporting Goods store so I will be heading there in the next week or two most likely. I did send the deposit off to my cake lady this week and have decided on lemon filling instead of raspberry for the cake.

We did get our cake cutting set a few days ago from Hobby Lobby. The best part was I printed off a 40% off coupon so I got them super cheap! I was excited bout that!

So I still haven't gotten all of my rsvp's back just yet, but yesterday I got a very exciting piece of news. My soon to be sister-in-law is going to be able to make it to the wedding!
I haven't been able to meet her in person yet but we get along great on the phone and im's lol
So Jason and I are more than a little excited that she gets to come and that we get to spend some time with her!

I am going to go try on dresses in the next few weeks :)

Also I have a bridal luncheon with my Maid Of Honor (my sister--Beth), and my two bridesmaids and very good friends (Mandi) and (Trina)! That is this coming Saturday and I am super excited bout it.

Then at the end of March I have my lingerie shower and then bachelorette party, I believe the weekend ofter the shower. We are going to have so much fun!

I am still thinking about what I want to do food wise but I'm not sure yet. We might just do cake and punch but we are not totally sure yet.

I found a hairstyle that I like that I am going to have a trial run done as soon as I find a hair dresser. I also need to get my hair trimmed some.

Oooo weee so much to do. But on the bright side we only have 49 days until the wedding!!! So super excited!!

Hope you all are having fun planning your weddings!

And The Countdown Continues!!

So the last time I wrote there was about 88 days left...we are now down into the 60's. Cannot believe how fast time flies! It has been a productive few weeks as far as wedding planning goes. My mom bought our toasting glasses as a surprise for me and gave them to me last week :o)
Very nice surprise! We have been looking for a cake topper and we are trying to decide between a couple that we have found. Tomorrow we are going to try to find our cake cutter/server and also go find a kit to make the grooms cake. Jason is a deer hunter and wanted that incorporated into his grooms cake. So I am thinking about getting a sheet cake with green icing and a kit from the store with a deer and hunter etc..and creating the scene on the top of the cake :o)

I also found someone to make our cake which I am super excited about. Also found someone that can come out and marry us :o)

And applied for our passports this past week too...like I said it has been super productive.

It feels so good that things are finally finally coming together for the wedding.

Beth and I were discussing bridesmaids details etc today and we are talking about having everyone wear white sparkly flipflops instead of fancier shoes as we are getting married outdoors. Also I hadn't picked any kinds of flowers but now we are thinking white and yellow daisies for the bridesmaids and then yellow roses with white daisies for me and then the cake will have white and yellow daisies (fresh flowers) on it. Love love love that things are coming together!!!
