221 Days

That is crazy to me! 221 days until the wedding...what??? The rest of this winter/early spring will be super wedding planning mode. Once the spring and summer starts, I'm so busy at work with other weddings, I won't be able to think about my own, so I really want to get a bunch of stuff done in the next few months. Here's what we have confirmed so far:

Venue - Check! I'm in love with our venue and I know it will be perfect! Cross your fingers for no rain!

Caterer - Check! And we have our tasting on February 23rd! so excited! We're doing a plated dinner with chicken and crab cake (on one plate - no choices) with an amazing tomato, mozzarella and basil salad. YUM! We've also already picked out all of our linens, chairs, china, etc.

Photographer - Check! I am totally obsessed with my photographer and I want to be best friends with her. Her pictures are just incredible.

Dress - Check! It will be here in 4 months. AHHH!!

BM Dresses and Attire - Check! My last bridesmaid will try on her dress in February when I'm down in FLA visiting her. We have all the belts for the dresses and I'm pretty sure I found the perfect silver flip flops for them to wear!

Flowers - Check! We still need to tweak it a little bit, but I love my florist! We're doing a mix of dahlias, garden roses, hydrangea and orchids...all in yellow, cream and greens.

Cake - Check! We still have to do the cake tasting, but I have the idea for the cake in my head (and a picture) and I can't wait. I'm a chocoholic, so I'm pretty sure I want to do the WHOLE cake in delicious chocolate.

DJ - Check! I'm using one of my favorite DJ's who is a vendor from work, as he offered to do my wedding for free! I was blown away and so excited! I want tons of 80's music and super fun oldies.

Hair/Make Up - Check! I can't wait for this...I love both my hair and make up people!

Ok, so really, I have a lot done. Here's what I don't have:

Officiant - Umm yeah, this is really important and it's not confirmed yet. We are going up to Baltimore to meet with Jake's families pastor in a few weeks, so hopefully that will work out!

Ceremony Music
- we really want a steel drum player for the ceremony/cocktail hour and dinner. I think it goes well with our wedding...being on the water, outside in late summer with lots of bright colors.

Invitations - I have no idea what I want for this! Hmm I still have a little while to figure it out. I LOVE paper products and I definitely want something fun, bright and preppy!

Transportation - We want to shuttle people to and from the wedding since it's a holiday weekend and we don't want anyone drinking and driving. I'm thinking a few larger shuttle buses or trolleys.

Decor - I have about 10374623 ideas for decor and I really need to sit down and organize my millions of ideas! I'm thinking I want wheatgrass in huge barrels for the place cards, tall vases of lemons and limes around the cocktail hour and yellow and green paper lanterns hanging over the bar area.

I think that's everything! AHHHHH!
