4 months and counting..starting to get hectic!

March 4, 2009

I can’t believe my wedding is exactly 4 months from today! It seems like I was just announcing getting engaged over a year ago and now I’m starting to close in on the final stretch. Things are just now starting to get hectic as I begin gathering everyones names and addresses for the invites that go out next month. I am making each invite myself (pocketfold with inserts, see my flickr gallery in the right sidebar for a rough!), so I really need to buckle down and start printing and cutting out all the parts for assembly. I also have a bunch of diy projects I planned to do and need to get started on – painting an aisle runner, making ring bearer pillows, customizing champagne flutes, menus, ceremony programs, tying ribbons on bubbles (bubbles ordered today!!), table numbers..place cards.. I could probably go on a lot longer but I’m sure I’ve bored you enough with the details!

Stress has subsided a bit so I have allowed myself to start enjoying the planning. Getting excited about sending out my invites and stalking the mailbox for RSVPs..and excited to see all my friends and family at my upcoming bridal showers. I can’t believe it’s all happening so fast! It still has’t quite hit me yet…I don’t think it will till I’m putting my dress on the morning of!

We had our food tasting at our venue a week and a half ago and it was ammmaaazing. The food was so delicious! I am so happy our guests will be fed such yummy dishes and will no doubt leave our reception happy and full. We got to try a few different dishes and sides and decided on 4 options for the guests – a beef option, a chicken option, a fish option and a veggie option. The beef is a prime rib which is basically the default beef choice so we didn’t get to try it but I’m sure it will be good! We did however get to try our chicken and fish choices and both were fantastic! We decided on a Parmesan Encrusted Chicken with a Cranberry Orange Sauce, which may sound a little different but it is ina  good way! Probably the best chicken I’ve ever had out to eat..ever. The fish we decided on is a baked salmon with a champagne lobster cream sauce which was also really delicious! In the past when I had salmon I wasn’t a fan – I just wasn’t feeling it. I did however love the salmon at our tasting! Between the dinner and cake..as amazingly tasty as they were at the tastings..I think everyone will be very happy! 😀

Well I’m off to bed! I’ve been very busy lately with my wedding planning stuff and working..I’m exhausted! *snore*
