The countdown has officially begun! We have about 3 weeks left to get everything in order, and it’s still going good!
We are working on the rehearsal dinner invitations now and will hopefully get those in the mail by the end of the week. Our rehearsal dinner is at Lazlo’s in the Haymarket, and we need to let them know a week ahead of the date what everyone wants to eat, so we need to get the invites out so that we can get all the information to Lazlo’s.
Last weekend we met with our event coordinator for the reception at the Grand Manse. Her name is Shelly and we got along great and I’m sure the day will be perfect! Shelley showed us what the layout of the room will be for the reception and we chatted about lighting and other details as well.
I had my final dress fitting last week and a few minor alterations still needed to be done. It will be done this Friday and I’m really excited to try it on one more time before the wedding!
My friend and bridesmaid, Sara Klein, is doing my hair for the wedding and we are going to do a practice run this weekend or next. I can’t wait to see how it turns out! I got some hair extensions to wear because I think that will add fullness and body to the curls, and then I think we are going to pull it half back somehow. I am on the lookout for a pretty hair clip or something to wear in my hair as well.
There are so many fun details and I am so lucky that everything has fallen into place! 🙂
I could not have asked for a more perfect bridal weekend! My bachelorette dinner and bridal shower were so much fun and so special. Here a few highlights from last weekend:
I picked up my gown and now just have alterations in July and my veil to be made!
I did a hair run through with Amanda at Eve Salon. Amanda does such a great job, I can’t wait for the big day!
My bridesmaids and I had dinner & drinks to celebrate my bachelorette party. We had fun playing some great games and I received the cutest BRIDE sweatshirt with pink rhinestones. So fun!
With my maid of honor, Jenna. We have been best friends since 2nd grade. She spent so much time working on every detail(all the way from Milwaukee) and everything turned out wonderfully. It was so great to have her in town for the weekend!
With my gorgeous Mom who gave me a sewing machine as my bridal shower gift. After all the years my Mom spent behind one, making Halloween costumes and throw pillows, it was such a special gift to me!
My bridal shower was beautiful and I loved being surrounded by my closest friends! Jenna, my MOH, asked Tyler 15 questions about me and taped his responses. As a game at the shower, Jenna asked the question, paused the video and I answered. I got 13 out of 15 correct on what he said! Tyler did such a good job and I think everyone got a kick out of hearing his answers. I also look forward to hosting some fantastic summer parties with the serving dishes and glasses I received. My MOH and Mom did such a wonderful job putting everything together(even down to sewing a gorgeous table runner), I am so grateful!
