Let the Countdown Begin

One more month – or I guess I should say, 27 more days! I can’t believe our wedding day is just around the corner. When we got engaged last December, a 10 month engagement seemed sooo long, but, let me tell you, the time flew by!!

We’re down to the nitty gritty: final guest count, final dress fitting, final menu selection, final payments…it’s all so, well, FINAL. Don’t get me wrong, I am beyond excited for this day to come but all these final details can be a bit overwhelming at times. Did I forget to mention that I can be a bit obsessive when it comes to details? Hence, the overwhelmedness (is that a word?).

Aside from those things that, by the way, I’m sure will turn out quite nicely, there are so many more things to look forward to in the not too distant future: getting all dressed up, celebrating with friends and family, saying ‘I do’ to the man I love, oh, and a trip to Paris! Just to name a few ;)

Rock N’ Roll

So I received a text last month from my ever so hip and fabulous photographer, Erin, and she sent the happy news that we were going to be featured in an equally hip and fabulous wedding blog. I know those terms don’t usually go together when referring to wedding related things but, hey, the times they are a changin’. If you haven’t heard of Rock n’ Roll Bride before, you’ve been missing out! So go take a look. Best of all, our shining moment has finally arrived – you can see our special feature here.

What else have we been up to? Well…our invitations arrived in the mail last week, Justin asked his gents to join his entourage, my girls’ dresses should be arriving any day now, shower dates and bachelorette party arrangements have been made, I’m working on finding the perfect shoes to go with my dress, and we’re finalizing our guest list. Just to name a few. Next, we need to get the honeymoon figured out, shop for wedding rings, and sort out at least several dozen more details for the wedding day. So much to do and just three more months to do it!
