Eat Drink & Be Mary: A P R I L "TO-DOs" : wedding edition


A P R I L "TO-DOs" : wedding edition

As my kinders would say, "holy moly guacamole!"  In less than a week we will be officially four months away from walking down the aisle.  The fact that our wedding is in four months isn't what blows my mind.  It's that we started out with an eight month engagement, and now that there are four months away we are halfway through...uhhhh where did the time go?  I mean if the last four months went by this fast, who knows how fast these next four will fly by.  

And as stressful as that sounds, I could not be happier to be living with my prince charming for good (peace out, long distance) for good in four short months.  EEK!

April's To-Do list:
+ DIY table numbers (T and I are making these together and I'm just so so excited to do make these with him -- diy post to follow)

+ Register

+ Pick out Groom's attire

+ Settle on Honeymoon location

+ Reserve hotel for wedding night

+ find/borrow/rent Table Linens

+Pick up wedding dress & veil -- eek!

+Decide on bridesmaids' jewelry

+Find bridal jewelry

+Book hair trial for May

+ purchase wedding favors

+ get Unity item

+ set up rehearsal dinner time & inform attendants

and for all the things I have we have accomplished so far...

...and on that note

WOW!  My checklist for April may be long, but I have high hopes for this coming up month.  Not to mention how rewarding it is to look back at all we've accomplished so far.  Four more months (and a couple days) to anyone else blown away by how fast this engagement has flown by!?
