Guyyyyyysss, going to be honest with you guys. We didn't accomplish a whole lot this month.
- Hotel Room Booked
Booked our individual room (dog friendly room! hehehe!)
- Tux Selection
Robert selected a suit from The Black Tux and sent inquiries for his groomsmen. I really love their services, the way they package everything to include return label and packaging tape. All you have to do is drop it off at a Fedex location. Making everything so convenient. I think this would be good for the guys cause they can just give their measurements, shirt/coat/pant size, shoe size to a representative and they just get it mailed.
I've been asking some vendors if we can make final payments now instead of later closer to the date. That way we can spread the costs out and won't be leaving hole in our wallet in September.
- Honeymoon Booked!
We have picked KAUAI as our honeymoon location! More on that later!
- Find an officiant
Why is it so hard to find an officiant in Virginia?! Had probably put in 5+ inquiries, I think the most common response back is that Tuckahoe Plantation is too far. :/ We're tempted to find a friend that will be able to say a few words for us for the ceremony. But who?! :P
- Invitation Design
Starting to think of pieces: Invitation Suite (Invitation, Envelope, RSVP, RSVP Envelope, Map, illustration?)
I'm trying to think outside the standard stained wooden boards. Want to try something different but am unsure of what. Thinking of simple signs: Welcome, Escort Card, Table Number Signs
- Cake Tasting
Don't really have a particular flavor in mind. Almost tempted to tell the baker, surprise us! HA. I know, want it to look simple, tier cake. Also thinking of a mini dessert bar?
Confirming rental pieces
Hopefully next month we'll be more productive. How does our 6 month compare to other couples?! Can you think of anything else we should be doing?!
