It's October... It won't be long now!!!

So the countdown has begun. Tomorrow is the first day of October, there will only be 17 more days until the wedding. I'd be lying if I didn't say I am a little nervous, but more in shock that the wedding is so close. It won't be long before I'm married.

So I think that we got all of our invitations out. There are still some that we didn't have addresses for, we are just going to have to call the people to find out where they live or send the invitations to a family member. All in all, I think things went well, with the exception of not putting 'and guests' on the envelopes. So to clear up any possible confusion, anyone who would like to bring a date/guest with them is more than welcome to do so.

I'm starting to work on the programs for the wedding. I hope that they go as planned. I have been waiting on them, longer than what I would like, because I need to meet with the preacher marrying us so that I can be sure to have the correct order for the ceremony and clear up any final questions. I am just hoping that all goes well and the programs turn out half as nice as the invitations.

Jeremy and I got our Marriage License yesterday. That was uneventful but very meaningful (I guess, if that is the word to use) since we have to get it before we can get married and it is only good for 60 days. That's kind of neat. I guess there's no turning back now (don't be worried).

I hope that those of you who have RSVP'd have found it easy to do. Either by calling the number (or using the Call Me button on the top right) or submitting it through our Knot.com wedding website. If anyone has any problems, please feel free to contact me. You can leave a comment either on this website or sign our guestbook on the other website. I will help answer any questions you have.

Well I best be getting back to working on the wedding things. I hope that everyone has a great week and I can't wait to see all of you in a little less than 3 weeks.

44 Days to go

Well, it's been a little while, so I thought that I would post a quick message.

September is already here, where does the time go? Next month is the wedding, there are only 44 days to go. It is crazy how fast the days go, yet it seems like Jeremy & I have been engaged for like a year or more. I guess it is just because we have both been so busy that we don't take much time to sit back and relax. That's good though, otherwise I would get bored and that has the tendency to get me into trouble.

Things are really starting to come together for the wedding, it really amazing and exciting.

I have already submitted our engagement announcement to the newspaper. And Jeremy & I can get our Marriage license anytime now. That's when you know that it won't be long... when you can get your marriage license.

I also picked up my wedding band this past week. It is gorgeous! If I can get some pictures of it sometime, I will post them. The band that we got to go with my engagement ring looks perfect with it, even though it wasn't made to go with my ring. It just so happens that the band has almost the exact same "curve" that my ring does. When we have mine soldered together, they should look like they were always meant to go together.

I have the invitations all printed, I just have to glue them together and stuff the envelopes and they can go out. I am working on them a little each night, hopefully I will have them all ready within the next week or so. I am aiming to put them in the mail around the middle part of September. We aren't doing RSVP cards, so they don't need to go out as early. Instead of the RSVP cards, I put a message inside the invitation saying that you could log onto this website and follow the link on the top right-hand side of the screen or call a phone # that will allow you to leave a message. I don't imagine that everyone will rsvp this way, but at least it gives some people options. I guess we will just have to wait to see how well it works.

This past weekend my friend Amy got married. That was so much fun, I was one of her bridesmaids, so it was nice to be with her on such a special day for her. It was also really nice to see what I need to be prepared for the days leading up to the wedding and the day of the wedding. Hopefully I will be able to answer the questions that everyone will ask me, before they even ask, that way it doesn't seem as overwhelming.

I have been picking out some new music for the wedding. I found the most beautiful song the other week. I talked to Sharon (my pianist) about playing that during the wedding. She is going to play it for me, I just have to decide when to play it.
Check it out here, if you have a suggestion as to when we should play it during the wedding (parent's processional, bridesmaids entrance, etc.) leave a comment at the end of this post.

I have been looking at different wedding programs. I am hoping to start working on the wedding program soon. I will have to have the music figured out before I can do too much with them, but at least if I have an idea I will be able to pump them out pretty quick after everything is "finalized."

I think that is all I have for now. It won't be long and you will get to see how everything, that I have been working on and mentioning on here, comes together. I will try to keep you posted as the days get closer.

Have a great weekend!
