80 days (left) update

WOW, I can’t believe I am 80 days away from the wedding. I haven’t been on my blog in almost 2 months. I just haven’t been in the mood to write. So much has happened since I’ve been here last. I am pretty much done with the wedding planning. Right now, I mainly have to work on my guest list and invitations. This is going to be so hard since we both have a large family and a lot of friends. We are going to have to keep the wedding small. We need to narrow our list down to 100 people so that is basically 50 people each. We are going to have to only invite immediate family and very close friends. Since most of our friends are in the wedding party, most of our other guests will be family. Since our guest list is limited, we’ve decided not to invite anyone under 21. I know this will leave a lot of people disappointed, but they will have to understand that our venue and budge will not allow a lot of people. We will have some children but only the ones that are in our wedding.
Speaking of children in the wedding, I didn’t realize that shopping for flower girl dresses would be as hard as it was. I think that is the main thing that had me stressed out. It was hard finding a dress that looked nice as well as looks good on all my flower girls. I had 3. I actually purchased a colored dress but that didn’t work out with the girls’ sizes so I ended up sending them back. I finally just found a basic white dress. I hope they call all fit it. Out of the 3, only 1 has tried it on. I am still waiting on the other 2 to get their dress. If they can’t fit it then oh well, I’ve done my part. Like bridesmaids, flower girls can get kicked out the wedding too.

Now enough of the flower girls dresses, but speaking of dresses, I actually purchased another dress. I have 2 wedding dresses and I have no clue which one to wear. My family and friends like 1 dress but I like the other one better. We will see how this ends up. I think shopping for my wedding dress with my friends and family and filming for Say Yes to the Dress were all so overwhelming so I decided to go alone one day. It was actually better shopping alone. I got my shoes also. They are beyond perfect. I love them so much. I want to wear them right now but I have to wait until the special day.

So the only things I really need to do now are finish my invitations, finalize everything with my vendors, find shoes for the flower girls, finalize my menu, and get married!

Hopefully I will be back soon with more updates.
