"When are you getting married?"
"How long have you been engaged?"
"What do you do?"
"What does your fiance do?"
"How are you going to wear your hair?"
"What kind of jewelry are you wearing?"
"What about shoes?"
"What size are you?"
"Wanna see my dress!?!?!?"
Don't get me wrong - I love talking about wedding stuff as much as the next bride, but the rapid-fire questions were a bit much. Amidst all the questions, I learned that her fiance's name is Brett. And then I learned that her name is Annette! Brett and Annette! A couple more N's and they'd be Brent and Nanette!
****************With 26 days left to the wedding, I've gotten tons done, but still have lots and lots to do!
My to-do list:
Oven rental for caterer
Decide on alcohol at reception
Brent's clothing (shoes, shirt and tie)
Placecards (I can't decide what to do, and I can't really work on these until I get all the RSVPs back)
Seating chart (again, gotta wait until I know who's coming)
Table numbers (once more, gotta wait until I know how many people are coming)
Put dad's pic in locket (to be part of my bouquet)
Label butterflies with names (to honor deceased family members in our floral arch)
Finalize programs with Jenn
Provide "must play" and "do not play" lists to DJ
Finish writing vows
Review vows with Brent's dad, who is marrying us, and convince him NOT to cry. (Apparently he was crying after seeing action/adventure film, 16 Blocks, which didn't necessitate tears! Brent and I are screwed!)
Dress alterations/fittings (two more)
Final payments to vendors
Final meetings with vendors (florist, photographer, day-of coordinator, caterer)
Track down remaining RSVPs (We've only received about 70 of the 170-something we invited! Deadline is this Saturday!)
Marriage license (getting it this week)
Plan bridal luncheon
Guestbook (I can't decide what to do!)
Gifts for flower girls (I bought them some Bridal Barbies, but I want to make a little kit of things to keep them busy at the wedding - coloring books, paper dolls, etc.)
Gifts for groomsmen
Thank-you notes for gifts we've received (Lots of AWESOME stuff already, including the creme brulee set from Jen!)
