I really can’t believe it’s Wednesday, and I’m kicking myself trying to figure out where the time is going. Is anyone else feeling like the time is seriously rocketing past us? I will be middle-aged before we know it, and you’ll be there reading, and I’ll be sitting here writing about how it is to be working out as a middle-aged interracially married woman.
That will be fun.
Anyhoo, let’s chatty chat because it’s HUMP DAY. Woop woop! Sike, I’m kinda done with that joke.
Okay, so where are we in this Wedding Wednesday process?
Well, for starters, the fact that I started linking up with Kristyn, who is unfortunately taking a break from blogging has really kept me accountable for some of the things that I need to get done because I don’t want to show up on a Wednesday or a Tuesday night with nothing to show you guys. It’s not cool! Also Kristyn, I will miss ya girl, but hopefully you’ll be around and giving a lot of commentary!
So where am I with wedding stuff?
I’m at a really really good place where I’ve actually started to get stuff done and schedule some appointments that we’ve really been needing to have. Weddings Bands: For starters, tomorrow, me and Austin are going to go get our wedding bands tomorrow. I’ve shown you guys what I’m planning to get…
Ignore the fact that my nails were not painted for once, and check out my ring(s). I’m doing two rose gold eternity bands, and they look amazing either on their own or with my wedding band. Austin is wanting to go with a tungsten carbide ring, which I think is impossibly sexy, and I like it a lot. I kind of want to see what a rose gold band would look like on him too! So the appointment for that is set tomorrow at 4pm and then we’re going to sushi. Best. Evening. Ever.
Save-the-Dates: A newly-married bride friend of mine told me about inkinvite.com, a service that allows people to log in, put in their addresses, and for you to be able to easily and quickly compile them into an organized space. It’s cool because I’ve had to do minimal hounding to get people to give me their addresses because it’s so easy! Thank God for a service like this.
The invite list: This has, by far, been one of the toughest parts of the planning process. So our venue can only hold 150 people, which sounds like a lot, but it really really isn’t when you include your family, his family, and then the friends and things you might share. I’m terrified that I’m leaving someone off, or that someone may get insulted by not receiving an invite. I assure you, it’s (mostly) not personal with anyone, and I really want to have every single person I’ve ever seen in my life basically at my wedding, but we’re not made of money, and the venue literally can only fit 150 people. What that boils down to, is people we care about and people who are special to us. No more, and no less.
How’s your Wednesday going? Any brides out there doing the same thing as I am?
