A place for my knitting ramblings ...


To Do List

No knitting going on here. TracyB hat attack-ed me - but I just don't have it in me. The wedding is less than 4 months away and I am in full-on wedding planning mode. Which leaves very little knitting time, let me tell ya.

Have I updated you on wedding planning progress? The ceremony & reception locations are booked - for a May wedding in a historic theatre in the city of Detroit. We have chosen the food and we ordered our wedding cake from the favorite bakery in my hometown. I have my dress (yay!) and my bridesmaids' dresses (in black) are ordered. I have an appointment for my hair & make-up on the day of the wedding. Our guest list is just about finalized. We are 99% decided on our invitations - almost ready to place the order. We have booked the restaurant for our rehearsal dinner. A block of rooms have been set aside for our out-of-town guests. We have an awesome DJ lined up and a fabulous photographer. We booked our flights & hotels for the honeymoon(!!!).

Still need to figure out exact flower decor, my jewelry & other accessories, the bridesmaids' jewelry & other accessories, a flowergirl dress, exact tux choices, ceremony musicians, a guestbook, wedding night accomodations for us, seating arrangements, table #s, place cards, ceremony decorations (?), engagement photo shoot, postage, wedding programs, wedding bands, and all sorts of gifts/favors/welcome bags! Am I forgetting anything? I'm sure I am. Oh yeah, writing our ceremony from scratch!

Thank goodness for the With this String, I Thee Wed forum on Ravelry - it is keeping me sane, as well as entertained. Thank you ladies!

Oooh that's so soon!!! How exciting!

I'll tell you what, though - I wouldn't go back to being engaged for anything in the world. Being married is SO much better. Can't wait to see your dress and I'm sure your wedding will be BEAUTIFUL!

umm, I hope you don't mind, I tagged you! Seven weird things or famous people! Come on, you can fit it in between foundation garments and invitation madness, right?
