Wedding planning update: 3 months to go

18 June 2012

Christian Oth via Style Me Pretty

Since my last update…
— We had our first conversation with our pastor, who will lead our ceremony. It was pretty quick, but we made arrangements to meet twice more with him – once individually (gulp!), and then once more together.
— We ordered John’s suspenders and bought his shoes – post coming up soon about his accessories
— We revised our cocktail hour and reception menu in advance of our tasting at the end of the month
— We also revised our floral order in advance of our upcoming venue walk-through – excited!
— We booked the third night of accommodations for our minimoon (feeling pretty good about our second night’s accommodations, since Meredith texted me that I would love them when she visited, without knowing we had already booked them!)
— Marget and I bought some more decor that we’ll share – so nice to be planning alongside someone with similar style! :) Marget also kindly bought me some additional ribbon with a voucher I had for MJ Trimming.
— We reserved a pianist for our ceremony – an old friend from whom I took piano lessons when I was younger
— I discarded the idea of paper flowers (too time-consuming for a project I wasn’t enthralled by), but found something even better to replace them!
— I’ve started whitening my teeth – whoo! No sensitivity yet – keep your fingers crossed!
— The bridesmaid dresses arrived!

Next up on the list?
— It’s going to be a big month! We have a walk-through at both of our venues, a tasting with our caterer, a meeting with our chapel coordinator, and my bridal shower!
— We’re taking John’s tux to be tailored today
— We still need to make some major decisions about our rehearsal dinner
— Our invitations are printing, so I should have them in hand, addressed, and out the door by the next time I update you!
— My sister and I are going to make a trial cake while home… yum!
— Lots of crafty projects on the horizon – signage, stirrers, favors, oh my!

    Do you have any tutorials for paper flowers? I’m wanting to do the same thing and have found a couple online tutorials, but I didn’t know if you might have one that I haven’t seen yet. Thanks!

  2. Em! I’m so excited for your minimoon – I cannot wait to see where else you’re staying!

    Hi Laura! Yes, I definitely do! I’m still planning to write a post about my technique, but I basically used Jordan’s tutorial for the basic rose with a few modifications: http://ohhappyday.com/2011/11/diy-floral-party-hats/ Good luck!
