Tying up the Loose Ends so We can Tie the Knot!

  |   By Jessyca Mullan

I guess when you’re just a little over two months away from your wedding, that’s when everything really starts coming together. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve had more appointments than I can count.

To give an update on my hair, I went for another trial and it was much better than the first. Completely different style and this hairdresser really knew how to handle my thick hair. It didn’t budge at all. I made sure to jump up and down to be sure! I’m really excited that that aspect was taken care of.

My room has now turned into a printing press! I’m printing maps, menus and ceremony programs, and the piles of paper are starting to overtake me. I keep saying I’m glad the guest list is on the smaller side, because it would have multiplied the cost and the amount of work. For our menus I decided to tie Tiffany-style bows around every single one. I’m glad to say I completed the task much faster than I thought, and it really cut down on what it would have cost if I hired someone to make them.

I was hoping I would have a photo of our centrepiece by now, but the stock has not arrived as of yet. We decided on renting centrepieces using silk flowers rather than real ones from a florist. This especially kept some costs lower, considering florists don’t offer rentals! Not that I know of anyway. If everything goes as planned it will be a very tall trumpet style vase, with a large pomander or roses and Gerber daisies.

I’m starting to think that we are late in sending out our invitations, some people have wedding on later dates than ours and they have already sent them out. When do you plan on sending your invitations out? From what I had read, I believed eight weeks was the right time, but I think most people send them out before that. I’m really looking forward to receiving them, but not looking forward to assembling and addressing them! Thankfully it shouldn’t be as long as the bow-tying!

I think the most exciting of all wedding-related issues that I have been taking care of lately, is that my dress finally arrived!! It’s been a year and a half since I ordered it at Kleinfeld’s in New York. I religiously watch Say Yes to The Dress (I watched it even before I was engaged). I always wanted to go there, just for fun, whether or not I found the “one.” I just got the call this week, and I made my fitting appointment. Can you believe they are already booked up until halfway through June? So I’ll be heading down there just under a month before the wedding to make sure it fits right. I can’t wait to try it on again! Are any of you waiting for dresses to arrive? Was the order time long?

So I guess I spoke about a lot of things, but so many things have been going on lately, I couldn’t just pick one! I feel like everything is a blur and before I know it, it will be August 7th!
