6 months to go!

20 Jan

January has been a great wedding month so far.  I was in my friend’s wedding and got tons of ideas.  We finally came to an agreement on invitations.  We are in the process of booking our rehearsal dinner.  The cake is ordered!  We met our priest and filled out a 200 question ‘focus’.  WHEW!

Just for fun, let’s have a quick recap of what needs to be done in next 6 months:

Send Save the Dates!

Names and addresses for STD & Invitations

Pick up vases from Alix in Chicago (March)

Flower arrangements and centerpieces


Drew’s wedding band

Groom attire

Transportation > (Drew is in charge) Mostly done.


Fitting/dress alterations/dry clean

Hair appointment/practice do

Makeup appt for day of

Hair Accessories/Jewelry

Put together Programs (ribbon at top)


Something Blue?

Bridesmaid/Groomsmen gifts

OOTowner gift bags, maps, etc

Wedding certificate

Ceremony readings

Ceremony music

Cocktail hour music – (Mom in charge) > TBD


There’s probably more but that’s all my brain can handle right now.

In other news, it looks more likely we will be getting the house (yay!).  Hoping I can make it through the next 3 weeks.

I did join a running group and so far have been running 3x a week.  I’m supposed to run 4x a week but I can’t quite work up the energy to do that yet.  I’ve run up to 4 miles and made it just fine.  Keeping a 10 min/mile pace.  Next, I need to add back in some weight training for my arms, and some cross training.
