In just a few short hours, Ally and I will be heading to my bridal shop to pick up the bridesmaid dresses that just came in for the girls, and it's also time for my second dress fitting...kind of crazy that there's only 2 more months to go! I've been in super wedding planning mode lately, which is why I haven't been updating this here blog as often as I'd like. Any free time I have on the computer tends to get absorbed by everything wedding. It's kind of an addiction actually.
But seriously, I've gotten a TON done this week on the wedding front. Envelopes are at the calligrapher and should be ready today, which means invitations will be in the mail tomorrow! We've had them assembled and ready to go for months now, so it'll be nice to have that huge box emptied. I finally finished putting together all the favors, which was ridiculously tedious, but they look SO pretty...totally worth the effort. I finished designing my guest book, decorating program baskets, designing rehearsal dinner invites and menus, along with putting the final touches on the programs...oh, and my table numbers. Holy wow, my table numbers. My sister is one of the most crafty, artistic people I know, and she took on this DIY project herself to design and create my table numbers for me. I just HAVE to share with you some of the work she did:
Pretty amazing huh? I thought so.
I'm actually SUPER excited about my plans for tonight. A group of us ladies are checking out The Paint Bar in Newtonville. I'm not sure if I've mentioned it to you guys yet, but I love painting. Oh, and I love wine. And gossip. So painting while drinking and gossiping is pretty much my ideal night out. We'll be painting the Zakim Bridge at Night - I can just see it hanging from my guest room wall now...
Tomorrow, I'll be taking Brent out for his birthday. We're heading to the Waterfront of Boston with my mom and Ally, having dinner at Legal Test Kitchen down in the Seaport area, then outdoor bar hopping. It's looking like it's going to be a scorch-ah, so I will surely be wearing one of my new maxi dresses to keep cool!
Sunday morning, we'll be meeting with our photographer, Tracy Sheehan, to finalize the plan for our wedding - ahh! I've been SO looking forward to this! Her work is absolutely stunning, so I can't wait to see what she has up her sleeve for us! Then we'll be making a pit stop at the Christmas Tree Shop for welcome basket shopping. Brent is like WICKED excited about this, I can't even begin to tell you...NOT. But he's a good husband-to-be, so he agreed to come. I'm such a lucky gal :-)
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
