5 Months!

And another month bites the dust. Winter is gone, the warm weather is upon us, and it is starting to look like a wedding is coming up.

In regards to wedding planning, my big push for this month was to finish printing and assembling all of our invitations before I started working at the beginning of April. I am happy to report that the box of paper, vellum, and envelopes have been successfully transformed into an attractive box of invitations. I considered posting pictures of the final product on the blog, but I decided to wait until after I mail them out to our guests. So the invitation grand debut will come sometime in July.

In other news, I booked a spa for me and the bridesmaids to use on the morning of the wedding. It will also be the venue for the bridesmaid's tea. The bridesmaids and I are beyond excited about this little detail and it is yet another thing to look forward to on the wedding day. Speaking of the bridesmaids, I'm not sure if I blogged about this, but I finally got their dresses ordered!

We also booked our rehearsal picnic, complete with catering. This also appears to be a hit with the wedding party. Tom and I are looking forward to an afternoon of relaxing on the beach with our closest friends and family. I'm craving an Italian sandwich just thinking about it.

In regards to DIY projects, invitations definitely took center stage. I also managed to finish my little white dress, which will be worn to the rehearsal dinner and possibly our minimoon.

The biggest news of this month is my new job. As I mentioned yesterday, I am going to try to step away from wedding planning a bit to really focus on getting settled with my new schedule. We'll see how well that goes.

My goal for the next month is to focus on our wedding programs and finally figure out a format that is easy to assemble and will fit all the information we need. My dress should be arriving any day now, as should my wedding band. Next month will be four months until the wedding I'm starting to stress just thinking about it.


  1. My fiance and I are also getting married on 9.10.11 (also a date chosen by complete accident). Congrats on all of your progress! You are making me feel like a slacker! Your venue is awesome too. Looking forward to seeing more of your progress:)
