We have been so busy that our blog has been neglected a bit. Here is an update on our planning!
Paper and ribbon for our invitations were ordered on Monday! We ordered the paper from Anchor Paper (http://www.anchorpaper.com/) and ribbon from http://www.save-on-crafts.com. Those will be constructed over our semester break.
Our cake topper is ordered! Ben picked it out and it represents us as a couple quite well! 😀 We received it in the mail but Ben opened it and found they sent us Christmas ornaments instead so we are currently waiting to get our cake topper.
Bridal Showers are being planned! My first one is being planned by Ben’s Aunts Ju and Addi and will take place on December 29. It is happening so early so Ben’s older sisters can attend. My mom is making the trip down and I am really looking forward to everyone getting to meet her. My mom (with help from my aunts and Grandma) are planning a shower in my hometown on April 17th.
Save the Dates are here and stuffed into their envelopes! They are ready to go out in the mail soon! And the most exciting news that I have to share is… I said YES to the dress! Along with my mom, two aunts, cousin, my Maid of Honor and Grandma we traveled to David’s Bridal where I tried on quite a few dresses but when it was all said and done #3 was the magic number! No behind the scenes look on the dress though! I want to share details with all of you but this is one I’m trying to hold back on a bit! But we did purchase a dress (thanks Mom!) and we are picking it up on December 23rd. What a great Christmas gift! I’m bringing it down state with me when Ben and I head to his house for Christmas so I can show his family! I can’t wait to share this with them! My Maid of Honor (MOH) also tried on dresses and we choose a dress. She will be in Marine (Dark Blue) and the rest of the bridesmaids will be in Truffle (Deep Brown). They are going dress shopping in December.
There is a quick update!! I’ll try to update a little more often, once the semester is over I hope to be on here more!
